Petition to remove convicted rapist and registered sex offender Ben Johnson from the Cincinnati Cyclones organization. He signed last year with the organization citing his "faith and character" as a justification. However, his faith and character should have been clear when he was arrested for the second time for sexual assault.

Johnson was sentenced to three years in prison, and the New Jersey Devils organization released a statement: “Based on the ruling, the club has initiated the process required to terminate Mr. Johnson’s Standard Player’s Contract.”

After being released on parole, Johnson was acquired by the Cincinnati Cyclones. He was required to register as a sex offender in Canada, Ohio, and Kentucky. The victim was 16 years old at the time, and children attend these games. Allowing Johnson to play on this team is a silent endorsement of sexual assault.

Professional hockey players are role models, and this is not the behavior we want to encourage among our youth. Playing hockey professionally is a privilege that a convicted rapist should not be granted. Please sign this petition to have Ben Johnson removed from the Cincinnati Cyclones, as he should not have the privilege to represent our city, our team, or our sport.
