Suspend Michael Vick from the Atlanta Falcons
On Tuesday, July 17, 2007 Atlanta Falcons Quarterback Michael Vick was federally indicted on charges of operating a dogfighting ring (called Bad News Kennelz) out of a home he owned in Virginia. He is also charged with breeding and training the pit-bulls to fight. When the home was searched 66 dogs were seized, as well as "materials commonly used in dogfighting." Additionally, the remains of several dogs were found buried in the backyard of the home. Court Documents indicate that dogs who lost fights were put to death by drowning, strangulation, electrocution, hanging or shooting. If you believe Mr. Vick has abused his position as a public figure and role model and would like to see him suspended from the Falcons until his guilt or innocense can be determined in a court of law, please sign this petition.
