Fine and/or suspend Roddy White of the Atlanta Falcons

Roddy White of the Atlanta Falcons in response to the George Zimmerman verdict posted on his Twitter account that the jurors should go home and kill themselves. Mr. White has over 160,000 followers on Twitter, not to mention the re-tweets and media coverage. I would hope that the Falcons and the NFL would not want to be associated with divisive and irresponsible comments of this nature. Suicide is not something that should be promoted, implied or wished upon another human being. His hateful post should come with consequences. I urge the NFL to do the right thing and impose some disciplinary action on Roddy White.

To:
Fine and/or suspend Roddy White of the Atlanta Falcons

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It is no different then what Paula Dean said. She said a word, Roddy promoted the death of humans. With as many followers that Roddy has he should be charged for inciting a riot. If the NFL is going to suspend players/coaches for DUI, then telling people to kill themselves should rank at the same level. But then again Obama started all of this when he said if he had a child he would look like TM. But that is hard to imagine because TM was 100% black and his kid would be a white black 25-75% split.

      He is a public figure and should possess the discipline to hold his tongue. rather than use his position to incite more hatred and violence.

      Because a lot of people, including kids, look up to this moron. What he said should have consequences.
