    Isn't that Michael Vick's team? You know the guy they won't fire even though he's been caught dog fighting?

      He has been indicted, but not yet convicted.

      And the NFL/Atlanta Falcons have taken some action--he has been held from training camp, and it is likely he will be under suspension for quite some time (although perhaps not until his trial, since he got a fairly late trial date in mid-November).

      I think he probably did it, and if he did--justice should be swift.

      But I am not wild about the precedent of demanding an organization fire an employee for being indicted, and not giving them the benefit of trial.

        It's just that nothing gets to me more than animal cruelty.

          This is a particularly awful and brutal case of it. If he loses this case, he is going to be pretty close to unemployable, so take heart in that.
