They rape and murder our children, families and friends and we reward them with a jail sentence where they receive nutritional meals, television, medical care, etc. which we pay for.
Pedophiles are not getting harsh enough sentences. They are given slaps on the wrist and are often free to re-offend soon after conviction. Here`s just 2 examples of many:
-David James Lebanc. He was one of the 2 men involved in the confinement and sexual assault of a 16 yr old boy for two weeks in Halifax. He was already facing pending charges from 2010 for sexual assault, touching a person under age 16, and making child pornography with a 2yr old and a 5yr old! Leblanc was released in 2010 so long as he didn`t go near children. He failed to comply in 2011, and served only 18 days in prison! This assault on the 16yr old boy was 100% preventable. Our judicial system failed that boy.
-Christopher Paul Neil. He served a mere 5 yrs. in a Thai prison for posting hundreds of pictures of him assaulting more than one child. He was arrested upon his return to Canada for being a threat to all children, yet was released a few days later so long as he promises not to go near children. Sound familiar?
As per recent news articles, Harper's C-10 crime bill gives harsher sentences to pot growers than to pedophiles. Something is wrong with that.
Why are these monsters allowed to get away with this? Our system needs some reform. As long as the penalties remain as slack as they are, this is going to keep happening.
In 1981, Robert Graham was convicted of a murder crime in his hometown of Lake Providence, La. He was given a life sentence and is still serving time in the Angola State Prison System in the state of Louisiana. The evidence was shabby, but Robert was arrested and convicted, because he and the victim were in a previous altercation the night of the victim's death, at a local night club.
In addition, Robert pleaded guilty, because he believed that he might have stabbed the victim during the public altercation in the night club. He presented the weapon to the police.
Law enforcement accepted his word and therefore no investigation was done. Robert Graham's mother is requesting his release for time served or a transfer to a minimum security facility, closer to home. His mother is a senior citizen and no longer able to travel to visit him in his present location.
Convicted Police Officers - How can he or she give evidence?
A person who upholds the law cannot be seen to break the law.
Our police image must be improved they must be a pillar of society; the police should be open and transparent.
Should you know in your area how many police officers have criminal records? If you want to find out, you are entitled under the "freedom of information act".
If you are not happy with the answer, get your local MP involved.
Most Police officers do a very difficult job. The one,s with criminal convictions have no place in the Force. They make it difficult for the decent officers to gain the respect they need to assist them in there role as law enforcers.
The paper petition is going well we have over 2000 signatures. In the last month some police officers families have signed because they want the good name of the police improved.
Second Chance for Ex-Offenders Act of 2009 - Amends the federal criminal code to allow an individual to file a petition for expungement of a record of conviction for a nonviolent criminal offense if such individual has:
(1) never been convicted of a violent offense and has never been convicted of a nonviolent offense other than the one for which expungement is sought;
(2) fulfilled all requirements of the sentence of the court in which conviction was obtained;
(3) remained free from dependency on or abuse of alcohol or a controlled substance for a minimum of one year and has been rehabilitated, to the court's satisfaction, if so required by the terms of supervised release;
(4) obtained a high school diploma or completed a high school equivalency program; and
(5) completed at least one year of community service.
Authorizes an individual convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor to file an expungement petition. Directs the court, in ruling on such petition, after determining petitioner eligibility, to weigh the petitioner's interests against the best interests of justice and public safety.
Authorizes the Department of Justice (DOJ) to maintain a nonpublic manual or computerized index of expunged records, to be made available only to federal and state law enforcement personnel who have custody of such records for limited disclosure purposes.
Requires the restoration of expunged records of individuals subsequently convicted of any federal or state offense.
In May 2009 the focus on politics in the UK was very heavily overshadowed by issues of politicians expense claims and there was little evidence of the government machine working behind the scenes. In the beginning of June however the conviction of two men responsible for the appalling murder of two French students managed to drag the Justice Secretary, Jack Straw, into the headlines to make a public apology to the deceased's parents.
The reason for this apology was that unsurprisingly serious problems within the justice system had been identified in a report to parliament years prior to the offence. It is an inescapable fact that failure to properly address these issues at government level definitely contributed to the ability of Dano Sonnex to be in a position whereby he could commit the crime.
A further catalogue of blunders throughout the justice system each played their part in Sonnex being at large when he should have been in custody including Magistrates granting bail when he was on probation and a quite bizarre circumstance whereby police departments couldn't decide which were responsible for his apprehension. This resulted in a further 2 week delay during which time the offence was committed.
Although shocking this incident may not be the only such one in recent years as details of another case of ongoing debate continue to plague Kenny MacAskill MSP north of the border. Contrary to his parliamentary obligations under paragraph 7.2.1 in Volume 2 of the Code of Conduct for MSP's, Mr MacAskill refuses to release information which could show that another convicted person was possibly responsible for the suspicious death of Kevin McLeod.
"7.2.1 In representing people’s interests, members have a duty to respect individual privacy, unless there are overwhelming and lawful reasons in the wider public interest for disclosure to be made to a relevant authority, for example, where a member is made aware of criminal activity."
There is no other way to read this paragraph than to recognise that Mr MacAskill's refusal to disclose the requested information breaches the code of conduct. What is more worrying is that this breach could be impeding the course of justice which as Justice Secretary he is obligated to ensure does not happen.
It seems that while Kenny MacAskill is prepared to reveal that "efforts are under way to update police conduct regulations to plug the loophole", he is not prepared to release information resulting from the loophole. Information which could be preventing the parents of Kevin Mcleod from ever seeing justice done for their son. He has answered questions put to him by John Thurso MP directly related to the Kevin Mcleod case while publicly denying any knowledge of it which is not technically possible. In short his actions are actively preventing justice from being done rather than ensuring that it is.
Alex Salmond who faced charges of breaches in the ministerial code of conduct relating to misleading information regarding absconded prisoners on 30th May continues to publicly supported Mr MacAskill's position. In doing this, Mr Salmond has suggested that Mr MacAskill's continuing position demonstrates a lack of public opposition to it.
“The [ministerial] code says all ministers, including the First Minister, must not only give accurate and truthful information but correct an error at the earliest opportunity. Any minister who knowingly misleads Parliament should offer their resignation.”
Despite the above, Alex Salmond, Jack Straw and Kenny MacAskill continue to hold their positions while the flaws in our justice system which continue to wrongly release or fail to apprehend the guilty while equally through misconduct cause similar devastation to families through wrongful accusations and convictions.
It is time that the public are made aware of the full extent of misconduct within the justice system at all levels and demonstrated what it's position truly is regarding the effects of it on everyone in society.
What if you were convicted of a crime, but there wasn't one? They all say "I'm Innocent" This Man really is! You decide!
Douglas was convicted of first degree murder in 1995. He has always pledged his innocence. The scientific evidence also backs up the Truth, that he has been wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for a term of life!
There is so much new evidence to prove his innocence that this goes to the injustices against him if he is not granted a new trial. Douglas wasn't convicted of just any crime, but the worst of all crimes, the murder of a child. Her name was Nicole and she wasn't quite two. Her Mother had taken her to the Doctor ten days before she died because she had unexplained bruising all over her body, the Doctor diagnosed Nicole with a blood disorder which causes the blood vessels to hemorrhage without trauma. The Doctor gave her mom a prescription, that was that, but sadly it wasn't, it was just the beginning. Nicole's mom never filled that prescription, and ten days later baby Nicole died of a bleed in her brain. Because Nicole was bruised and had the hemorrhaging in her brain, they assumed she had been beaten, AKA shaken baby, and never concerned themselves with her diagnosis just ten days earlier.
Now lets skip ahead 1999, Doug was convicted and sitting in prison when he finds out that, the baby's parents are suing the Doctor for misdiagnosis of their child saying that if the Doctor had diagnosed their daughter correctly she would have lived, but because he had said it was a blood disorder not child abuse as Doug had been convicted of, she died.
So the Doctor having the financial ability to defend himself and get to the truth in what really happened to baby Nicole, he hired experts to review all the contents of the case, pathology, everything, and then A BOMB SHELL! In the same court house where Doug was convicted of the first degree murder of this child, it was determined that it was truly, the blood disorder that caused Nicole to die. Based on expert medical testimony, and all the evidence, the court determined that Baby Nicole had in fact died of the blood disorder, and that she had in fact been correctly diagnosed. Now this is just the tip of the iceberg and yet given this alone, Doesn't Doug deserve a trial where all the facts of the case surrounding this child's death are known? Medical testimony, as to the diagnosis of the deceased child.
Doug was provided what I consider to be no defense. His public defender, didn't even file the appeals that were mandatory after his conviction in this case.
So many have dropped the ball in this case, that I don't even know where to begin, and yet the Lord has put it on my heart to do something about this injustice.
Please sign this petition if you also feel the new evidence needs to be looked at, to ask that Doug will be given the fair trial that he deserves and we expect. Thank You for your time and God Bless, Family & Friends of Douglas
In an annual report sent to Congress Monday, the US Sentencing Commission announced it had amended federal sentencing guidelines to lower the sentences imposed on people convicted of federal crack cocaine offenses.
Unless Congress takes affirmative action to block the move, it will go into effect on November 1. The report also urged Congress to address the 100:1 sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine sentences.
Under the controversial crack laws, people convicted of distribution offenses involving five grams of the drug face five-year mandatory minimum prison sentences, while it takes 500 grams of powder cocaine to trigger the same penalty. Similarly, someone convicted of distributing more than 50 grams of crack faces a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence, while it would take five kilograms of powder cocaine to get the 10 years.
It is an expectation of each individual to maintain and promote a safe environment for all children and for those who are unable to defend themselves.
It should be an obligation of our government to provide reasonable information that will benefit those of us who are caring for our future, those who are our children.
In achieving a safe environment it should be expected that our government make freely available a database listing convicted sex offenders and paedophiles. It should be without hesitation that such a database be available not just to a select few but to the whole of Australia and so that all socio-economic backgrounds can benefit without financial discrimination.
The implementation of the three-strike law has caused a lot of controversy and has negatively affected the quality of life of many; primarily lthose of low socio-economic backgrounds. Because of this law people convicted of non-violent crimes such as burglary, theft, and drug related offenses are serving life sentences. The already challenged families of these indivisduals are left to further suffer without their support.
In the meantime, the policies against powerful criminals and violent offenders remain unchanged. It is another abuse of the already disadvantaged in society.
As a result of this law, U.S. Corrections has grown to a 32 billion dollar industry. It costs an averageof $19,700 per year for a county jail bed and yet only 65% of second strikes and 55% of third strikes are for non-violent or less serious offenses.
This young man Damien Mitchell made the head lines of a local newspaper after he was shoot 3 times and almost killed and the newspaper did not post any concerns of the shooting incident but printed this youngs man past history on the front Page which was not necessary.
Whatever he was charged with in the past and convicted on in the past is not relevent to this case. I feel that his rights was violated. He still should be treated as a human regardless of his past.
Does his shooting get ignored because he has a past? Does the Police Department have the right to slander his name?

I am filing this after having my normal visitation stripped from my son, and no visitation awarded for my daughter. I went to court to try to gain custody, and she wrongfully accused me of sexual and physical abuse to her.
She had gone to a counselor and told her the lies, so she could use the counselor against me in court. On that day we did not get to cross examine, as the day was continued. The magistrate ordered my visitation with my son be supervised, and no visitation with my daughter until I was fully examined by a counselor or psycologist.
On the second day of court the woman who does the supervision had advised the court that she felt no need for concern if I had my normal visitation back. We had other useful witnesses that day as well, only to get the same ruling as before.
I feel I was wrongly stripped of my children, and now my son calls me my ex's boyfriends name, and has referred to him as daddy.
The damage done to my relationship with my children will take years to fix, and that is if I ever get my normal visitation back. I d want to propose this so it doesnt happen to other parents.

As a mother of two, it just sickens me that there are sexual predators preying on our children.
WHEN and IF they are charged they get an insignificant punishment and let out in a couple of months .and only to attack another helpless child! There was an 11-year old girl abducted in Armstrong, BC not to long ago, thankfully she was found 36 hours later. The man that abducted her was in his fifties and well known to police. What kind of sentence is he going to get? If you ask me, he should be put in jail to rot! We need tougher laws so these pitiful creatures do not harm our children any more.
Check this out: a businessman and father, was convicted of obtaining the sexual services of minors on four occasions. The court imposed the lenient penalty of a six months suspended sentence, one-year probation and a $500 fine.
A man was convicted of hitting Alberta Premier Ralph Klein in the face with a pie. Provincial Court has sentenced him to 30 days in jail, three months probation, 40 hours of community service and a $50 victim surcharge.
Makes sense doesn't it?
If you want to protect your children and get these jerks off the street, please sign, perhaps then the government will start listening.
One strike law for convicted child sex offenders in order to protect American children and their right to a safe environment.
15. STOP H.R. 1528 !
WHAT'S WRONG WITH H.R. 1528?
Among other things, it:
- Makes the federal sentencing guidelines a system of mandatory minimum sentences through a "Booker-fix" provision.
- Creates new mandatory minimums that further erode judicial discretion.
- Eliminates the safety valve for low-level drug offenders.
- Makes virtually every drug crime committed in urban areas subject to "drug free zone" penalties that carries a five-year mandatory minimum sentence.
- Punishes defendants for the "relevant conduct" of co-conspirators that occurred BEFORE the defendant joined the conspiracy.
As written, H.R. 1528 would:
- Effectively make the federal sentencing guidelines a system of mandatory minimum sentences through a "Booker-fix" provision. This provision forbids judges from departing below the guideline sentence in all but a few cases.
- Make the sale of any quantity of any controlled substance (including anything greater than five grams of marijuana) by a person older than 21 to a person younger than 18 subject to a ten-year federal mandatory minimum sentence.
-Create a new three-year mandatory minimum for parents who witness or learn about drug trafficking activities, targeting or even near their children, if they do not report it to law enforcement authorities within 24 hours and do not provide full assistance investigating, apprehending, and prosecuting the offender.
-Create a new 10-year mandatory minimum sentence for any parent committing a drug trafficking crime in or near the presence of their minor child.
- Mandate life in prison for persons 21 years or older convicted a second time of distributing drugs to a person under 18 or convicted a first time after a felony drug conviction has become final.
- Increase to five years the federal mandatory minimum sentence for the sale of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, college, public library, drug treatment facility (or any place where drug treatment, including classes, are held), or private or public daycare facilities - in short, almost anywhere in cities across the U.S.
- Eliminate the federal "safety valve," granting it only when the government certifies that the defendant pled guilty to the most serious readily provable offense (the one that carries the longest sentence), and has "done everything possible to assist substantially in the investigation and prosecution of another person," and would prohibit the federal "safety-valve" in cases where drugs were distributed or possessed near a person under 18, where the defendant delayed his or her efforts to provide substantial assistance to the government, or provided false, misleading or incomplete information.
For these reasons, FAMM opposes H.R. 1528.

THIS PETITION IS ASKING CONGRESS TO CHANGE EXISTING LAWS CONCERNING CHILD SEXUAL PREDATORS, TO REQUIRE A CONVICTED CHILD SEXUAL PREDATOR TO WEAR AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE AT ALL TIMES FOR LIFE...
For those of you that are unaware of Megan's Law, it was a Law proposed to the United States in the mid 1990's after a little girl called Magan Kanka was molested and killed by her neighbor Jessy Timmendequas who has now been since charged and sent to jail and is now on death row.
Maureen Kanka, mother of Megan Kanka put all her energy and time then into creating a law called "Megan's Law", which means convicted pedophiles will be listed to the public with in his or her delectated area.
This Petition refers to Convicted Sex Offenders. Currently, these Pedophiles have to register for 10 short years from the time of their conviction. THIS IS INSANE!
Please sign this Petition & forward to as many people as possible. A little bit of insight---my son was 3-1/2 years old when I found out he was being victimized!?! So, these people MUST register for the duration of theIr life. Pedophiles CANNOT be rehabilitated and it is up to us to get ths Bill enacted in Congress! Once I receive what I hoe to be a significant petition, I am headed to Capitol Hill to fight to have this Bill passed immediately! The Petition is named "Gage's Law".
Lastly if anyone is interested in joining me in Washington, D.C. - please let me know! Thank you! Dee Dee...
Petition to Free Lonnie Ray Allen LaBonte
TO: The United States District Court for The Southern District of Texas, The 410th District Court of Montgomery County, Texas, Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, The Honourable Governor of Texas, and Everyone interested in truth, justice, and righting a judical wrong,
Lonnie LaBonte, born January 14, 1977, is a soft spoken, gentle, pleasant, well mannered young man, gainfully full time employed and considered to be a hard working individual...that is until being raped by a failed judicial system, wrongly convicted of capital murder and sentenced to spend life imprisoned forcing him to become a victim for crimes which he did not, could not and is not capable of having committed, crimes which happened miles from where he was at the time, crimes which are physically, logistically, and humanly impossible for him to have committed.
Rather than justice having been performed on behalf of the victims, Morgan and Cleary, a grave injustice has been done to Lonnie LaBonte, his wife, child, family and friends....all of which have been made to become victims by a failed judicial system by allowing the true perpetrator of these acts to remain without prosecution or conviction.
After a jury trial lasting about 3 days, with no witnesses testifying on his behalf, false testimony given by some of the State witnesses, no DNA evidence, no telephone records, no physical evidence, one co-defendant became a State eye witness after being held (just over 20 months declaring innocence with no knowledge, or involvement in said crimes in Montgomery County jail), decided just a few days before the trial of Lonnie, to accept a deal offered by Montgomery County Texas District Attorney.
In a Deposition given willingly in 2004, the State of Texas "eye witness" admitted that a deal offered by the District Attorney was a kind of wink-wink deal, was made in exchange for testimony against Lonnie. At Lonnie's trial this person testified among other things, that Lonnie committed acts resulting in the death of one or both girls, in concert with or aided by a third co-defendant, while remaining within the pickup truck watching.
Lonnie was convicted September, 2000 receiving a sentence of life in prison.
All charges were dropped against the State eye witness, being released in November, 2000 with prosecutors stating "lack of evidence to prosecute" as reason for dismissal.
February, 2004 Said State witness willingly gave a Deposition which states in part that a story had been given, which was later adapted to be their own, that the Montgomery County Texas District Attorney had a "wink-wink" type of deal and went on to explain the details of it. This witness admitted that they and Lonnie were together the evening and morning in question, that Lonnie did not ever commit, nor take part in any criminally charged activity, and did not ever go to the location known as the crime scene.
There is additional new evidence discovered since his conviction to support his innocence which cannot be added to this petition but is incorporated in as a part of the Petitioner's Habeas Corpus Motion Pursuant to Rule 11.07 ET. SEQ. of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Memorandum of Law in Support of Petitioner's Habeas Corpus Motion Pursuant to Rule 11.07 ET. SEQ. of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure to be filed with the 410th District Court Montgomery County, Texas; Petitioner's Motion for Relief Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254, Memorandum of Law in Support of Petitioner's Motion For Relief Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254 to be filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. Said Motions and Memorandums were filed on or about October 5, 2004.
The outcome of the filing of the 11.07 and the 2254 mentioned in the above paragraph is as follows:
The parents of Lonnie, and his 2 attornies went together (October 4, 2004) to file the 11.07 at the Montgomery County District Clerk Office who gave a time and date stamped file copy. We four then went to the office of District Attorney Mike McDougal to hand carry the required by law copy to his clerk, who gave us a date stamped copy.
The attorney's office called to tell us (a day or so afterwards) that District Attorney Mike McDougal refused to accept the filing, stating that it had to be filed on a specific form, which no attorney, clerk or judge asked seemed to have ever heard of being required before, and no laws were mentioned requiring it!
This necessitated having Lonnie's signature, which required the attorney to obtain. Polunsky Unit required a minimal 24 hour written notice and approval by the Warden. The office of the attorney is located in Austin, Texas. Lonnie is being unlawfully held in Livingston, Texas. Logistically, a four hour drive approximately, from Austin to Livingston, then another hour or so drive to Conroe to the Montgomery County Court House...after being processed in and out, and spending needed time with Lonnie. A Motion was filed to request that the form version be accepted as an addendum or amendment to the original filing....that was denied eventually.
Meanwhile, the deadline for the filing of the 2254 was October 6, 2004. The filing was successfully done. The Court ruled to dismiss it (sorry if this is not the correct legal term, not sure), until a ruling on the 11.07.
An article appeared within the Houston Chronicle on Saturday, October 9, 2004, Section City & State, Page B3 titled, "DA accused of misconduct."
The State of Texas has responded to the 11.07. The Office of Mike McDougal has requested that NO Evidenciary Hearing with oral argument be granted and requests that only statements/affidavits be allowed.
We are presently waiting for the Courts decision whether to grant our right to be heard with evidence and live testimony.
Domestic Violence is taking the Freedom from Women, Children, Men, and Entire Families, Mother's, Father", Siblings etc.
I propose that we pass a Law instituting a Criminal Backround check on both the Male and the Female to find out if they have ever been convicted of a Domestic Violence or Child Molestation.
If either party has, they must tell the other before they get Married.
It is very costly to Rehabilitate a Family once the Violence is Reported to the Authorites.
The Couple to be Married would pay the cost.
Those Monies should and could help with Education, Job Training, the Deficit, and many other things needless to say it could be Saving Lives.
I am a Survivor, and if you have never ever been a Victim, never become one, and If you have ever had to struggle to be a Survior, help me to win this fight.
May the Angels watch over You.
MAKO Inc has been distributing this petition off line for over 12 months with a positive response.
This petition is put forth by the M.A.K.O. Incorporation and the undersigned citizens of Australia requesting the introduction of a Zero Tolerance legislation in the criminal sentencing of Child-Sex Offenders in any State or Territory of Australia (meaning: mandatory lengthy Jail terms for first Child-Sex conviction), and for the introduction of legislation for community notification of convicted Child-Sex offender's exact residential location in any State or Territory of Australia following conviction. (Community notified would be community where convicted Child-Sex Offender chooses to reside).
The M.A.K.O. Inc. and petitioners would like to see these requests be given urgent Attention in Parliament and introduced throughout Australia to prevent victims and to deter Child-Sex Offenders from offending re/offending.
This petition is to help prevent the parole of a convicted killer in Maryland.
On March 23, 1978, Karen Fried and another boy drove a 13-year-old to a parking lot, where the boy stabbed her 22 times, and slit her throat so violently she was almost dismembered. Karen lured the young teen to this park with the killer in the trunk of her car, stood by while he killed her, then drove back home, then lied to the police about what happened. Maryland Gov. Robert Erlich has decided to commute Karen's life sentence which makes her eligible for parole. We do not want her on the streets! Life means life! We, the undersigned STRONGLY OPPOSE the parole of Karen Fried.
For those who DON'T know: PETA is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the largest animal rights group around. The problems that have been plaguing the world by the Animal Rights movement is constantly hurt more by this organization and people unwilling to see the lies, and the support of terrorists groups, phony organizations, and even committing violent acts.
PETA has been accused several times of supporting terrorism in the name of their political agenda. PETA has denied this, but PETA's IRS 990 forms show that PETA donated to the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, the largest domestic terrorist groups in the U.S, which has confessed of committing over $10,000,000 worth of damage to buildings, defacing property, even mailing death threats, to spread its political agenda. PETA's donations are as following: $1,500 to the North American Earth Liberation Front in 2001, $45,200 to Rodney Coronado, who was convicted of burning down a research lab. Another $25,000 in an un-returnable loan went to his father the previous year, $2,000 to David Wilson convicted of firebombing a bird co-op, $5,000 to Josh Harper, convicted of assaulting police, a firing at a fishing boat, and $ 1,500 to Fran Trutt convicted of attempting murder of a medical Doctor. Yes, attempted murder.
Even though PETA tries to cover up/deny any of these donations, the lies show right through. Now their tax-exempt status is at risk because of these donations. This organization is also responsible for pulling off publicity stunts, such as the shocking "Got Beer?!" campaign, which is supposed to make people believe that beer is better than milk. Another example of their extreme campaign was the billboard in Europe that claims that feeding children meat is child abuse. PETA's head cheese, Ingrid Newkirk, Vegan coordinator Bruce Friedrich, and other top PETA members have said things that make you wonder what planet they are from, and clearly shows their hatred towards other humans, and support for terrorist actions in the name of Animal Rights. For example;
· "Our nonviolent tactics are not as effective. We ask nicely for years and get nothing, someone makes a threat, and it works." - Ingrid Newkirk.
· "I openly hope that it comes here." - Ingrid Newkirk referring to mad cow disease.
· "We're looking for good lawsuits that will establish the interests of animals as a legitimate area of concern in law." - Ingrid Newkirk
- "If a girl gets sexual pleasure from riding a horse, does the horse suffer? If not, who cares? If you French kiss your dog and he or she thinks it's great, is it wrong? We believe all exploitation and abuse is wrong. If it isn't exploitation and abuse, it may not be wrong."
- "Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are 'acceptable crimes' when used for the animal cause."
- "The cat, like the dog, must disappear... We should cut the domestic cat free from our dominance by neutering, neutering, and more neutering, until our pathetic version of the cat ceases to exist." - John Bryant, PETA
· " I find it small wonder that the laboratories aren't all burning to ground. If I had a more guts, I'd light a match." - Ingrid Newkirk, after an underground group mailed razor blade laced threats to medical researchers studying new drugs on primates.

· "If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then, of course we're going to be blowing things up and smashing windows I think it's a great way to bring about animal liberation, considering the level of suffering, the atrocities. I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks that fund them exploded tomorrow. I think it's perfectly appropriate for people to take bricks and toss them through the windows. ... Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do It."
Bruce Friedrich, PETA's vegan campaign coordinator, at the "Animal Rights 2001" conference
It's very disturbing to know that an organization like this could have so many heartening comments coming from their higher members. Bet you didn't know that Ingrid Newkirk admitted on a CNN interview that they [PETA] deliberately editing out certain portions of the videotape done at BoysTown in order to make it appear that the kitten in the video was suffering, when it was really coming out of anesthesia. You know that PETA runs large anti-meat/dairy/fishing/animals in medical research campaigns, but did you know that they get their information from a group called the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (AKA PCRM), which claims to be a group of "Doctors and laypersons working together for compassionate and effective medical practice, research, and health promotion." Evidence from Activist Cash (http://www.activistcash.com/) shows that physicians make up only 5% of its membership, and that the group's only physicians represent less than 0.5% of America's doctors. They also want to abolish animal use in lifesaving research and try to promote (and extremely enforce) Veganism, going as far to suggest that meat, eggs, and dairy can be labeled as "Weapons of mass destruction". This is completely ridiculous and false. PETA also claims to help the animals, which is hypnotically because according to a July 26, 2000, Associated Press story, out of the 2,103 animals that PETA "rescued" during 1999, a whopping 1,325 of them were euthanized because they couldn't find homes and shelters for these animals. Considering PETA's yearly income of over $10,000,000, don't you think that they should have been able to build a few shelters? To add to their hypocrisy, PETA pledged after 9-11 not to do extreme campaigns, but recently cranked out the new "Terrorism at the Table" campaign, comparing turkey slaughter to terrorism, featuring a turkey holding up a supermarket urging them to go vegetarian. To add to the hypocrisy, PETA members have been seen eating meat/wearing leather and fur, and the celebrities supporting PETA in campaigns, have also supported what they were shown as against. To conclude, all we say is to think long and hard about this essay. You make the decisions, but your decision may affect the future, and whether PETA takes over and our freedoms and lifestyle become obsolete based on hearsay, and propaganda created to get some attention. The choice is yours. PETA, if you listen to us please stop the madness. You are hurting your cause, and your group. Stop the madness before it's too late.
This petition urgently requests for a fair treatment and justice for Reverend Rinaldy Damanik. He has been charged over 'the suspect in the outbreak of violence' and is held captive under Indonesian Police. Despite failing to find any charge against Rev. Damanik, Indonesian Police have twice extended his detention. This innocent man awaits a trial for a crime he never committed. If he is convicted, Reverend Rinaldy will possibly face long years in prison or even the death penalty.
Please find compassion in your heart and rescue this man from any penalty he does not deserve. I believe that he has no malice in his heart and only seek to love and serve others.
He is a 'respected leader who united thousands of refugees'. These same refugees of Tetena are now, also, strongly behind Rev. Damanik. They are protesting his innocence.
The last thing we want to happen in this world of turmoil and terror is for people like Rinaldy Damanik to be executed. They are light bearers who bring peace and unity within a broken society. What we are doing for them is not enough. They and their families deserve much, much, much more respect and protection than we currently give.
Please, I ask again, help pardon Rinaldy Damanik from such an unfair treatment. He is not the one who should be paying for such conspiracy.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
According to published CDC reports, California spends close to $2 million dollars annually to provide Cable and Sattilite TV to inmates. Further, it costs tax payers twice the amount to feed inmates in Fire Camps than it does the average inmate.
Victim's Harvest Bill of Human Rights ---- HR XXXX
The sole determined purpose of this humble petition is for The United States of America to finally ensure that death sentence criminals who have been convicted of capital crimes against mankind pay for their heinous and vicious crimes against our society by enacting a lock-tight comprehensive Congressional Federal law or amendment --- that is Supreme Court appeal proof --- that convicted death penalty criminals shall have to forfeit their bodies immediately after last appeal is exhausted with no death row waiting and become instant organ donors.
Basically, any criminal who has been convicted of a capital crime in or against the United States of America has to instantly forfeit his body organs as a federal punishment to atone for his crimes to society. The revised death sentence appeals process will now also be limited to two calendar years after conviction. This new law will supercede, overwrite and replace any state or federal law and will be applied no matter what may be the criminal's religion, faith, color, creed, belief's, sex, sexual orientation or whatever possible reason.
Any criminal that believes he needs his body parts for his or her next life will have still to suffer the consequences of the new law. The convicted death sentence criminal will be given ample notice by the passing of this new Federal Law or amendment that any capital death sentence offense now carries this new instant organ donor provision, therefore any religious, spiritual or personal concerns are deemed invalid and irrelevant due to the severity of the capital crime and the public notice.
Any financial gain or proceeds from distribution of the victim's organs, skin, bones, eyes, kidney's, heart, lungs or any conceivable use of his body shall go directly to the victim's family or families. The victim's family shall be the sole determiner of the financial rewards and have a limited say on who gets the body parts if needed by other victims of the crime or family members.
The harvest of the victim's organs should be done in the most absolute painless and humane way possible so as not to cause any cruel and unusual punishment, but not to lose any useable part of the anatomy.
A very small benefit --- totally useless in my opinion, but worth mentioning --- of this new VHBOHR, it may also serve as a possible deterrent for any future crimes, although this is not a reason for future passage or my respectful, humble request for your consideration or signature..
The convicted criminal or any anti-death penalty groups who feel this is somehow a possible violation of the new donor's human or civil rights have the option of making a further cash donation to the victim's families or offering a prayer or petition for the painless harvest of the convicted capital criminal. The opposition voices to the VHBOHR shall be drowned out by the anguished cries of the victims for justice and true punishment and shall never be heard or even considered.
The only single drawback is that this new law or amendment is that it will not apply to all current convicts living on death row at the present time.
With American society now rampant and constantly besieged by new child sex predator killers, perverted rapists/killers, murderers, cop killers, terrorists in custody here and in Guantanamo, and all types of capital crime death row felons, it has now become apparent that America has to seek proper justice, punishment, restitution and recompense for the crimes committed by these convicts for the victims of these atrocities.
It is now time for America's Victims to harvest the organs or the convicted criminals, so in death they can become repentant if possible, whether forced in the end to donate their organs or willfully donated. Hopefully some will leave this world feeling better that they have paid for their sins and crimes and given life to their fellow members of society.
I can assure you that most death row inmates believe in a life after death and by enacting this law, the new Victim's Harvest Bill of Human Right's Bill, the donor's will come to have a sense of peace and atonement and come to believe that their actions will maybe help them in some small way in their next life.
Respectfully submitted for your signature.

ROY BROWN WAS CONVICTED OF A MURDER HE DID NOT COMMIT. DNA TESTING WILL PROVE HIS INNOCENCE.
On May 20 1998 Frankie Casteel was wrongfully convicted of killing three men (Richard Mason, Kenneth Griffith and Earl Smock) atop Signal Mountain, near Chattanooga Tennessee.
Everyone has a right to a fair trial, we the people say Frank Casteel did not get a fair trial,and is in prison for a crime he did not commit.
On the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation homepage there is a saying "That guilty shall not escape, nor innocence suffer"
We ask that this case is looked at, and also look into the way this investigation was done.
PLEASE HELP FREE FRANK CASTEEL, A MAN IN PRISON FOR A CRIME HE DID NOT COMMIT.
