Babineaux is currently in the Falcons pre-season camp, obviously keeping a low profile.
Simply put, however, as long as Babineaux is allowed to play with the Falcons while Vick is forced to sit out, the NFL's and the Falcons' treatment of Vick can only be seen as a PR ploy. It has nothing to do with ethics, or a standard of character they want from their players.
As long as Babineaux remains active, the NFL and the Falcons are little more than hypocrites whose hands were forced in the Vick case.
While this may be the first time that Mr. Babineaux has come across your desk in a troubling way, we would still request his immediate suspension because of the nature of these serious charges. The evidence and testimony against Mr. Babineaux is overwhelming. To continue to ignore the implications of Mr. Babineaux's retaliatory and remorseless brutality against his victim, Kilo--a young, defenseless dog weighing not much more than a child--serves to condone such inhumane acts and openly encourages others to commit similar crimes of violence and cruelty against the young, the small and the defenseless.
Does or does not the Atlanta Falcons leadership abhor and condemn cruelty to animals and violent crimes, in general? If so, you must suspend Jonathan Babineaux from play indefinitely, pending the outcome of his trial.
Let it be known that if you do not choose to suspend Mr. Babineaux immediately and if you allow him to dress in an Atlanta Falcons uniform this season, we the undersigned will boycott everything Falcons, including but not limited to games and merchandise.
Do the right thing for the Falcons, the city of Atlanta, the fans and, most of all, for Kilo. Suspend Jonathan Babineaux immediately and indefinitely!
