What my class wants to do is petition our county of Volusia to see if we can get Smoke alarms put in High schools in the County.
We feel as if there is too much smoking in school rest rooms and by putting Somke alarms in them it would make kids awars that if they are caught they would get in trouble.

Lance Corporal Nitin (Nathan) Sarangapani, USMC was brutally murdered on his 24th birthday in Houston, Texas, in the early hours of September 25th, 2005.
According to the police investigators, he was fatally shot by the father of the girl he had been seeing for a couple of months.
The details are still sketchy, but from what we know, Nathan was celebrating his 24th birthday at a friend's place. Around 12 midnight, he went to drop off the girl at her home. It seems that about 30 to 40 minutes later Nathan and the girl's father had some conversations over the phone and Nathan went back to their house. The father of the girl shot Nathan, about 30 feet away from the front door and near the street.
The suspect is claiming self-defense and that he was afraid of Nathan. Nathan was totally unarmed. The suspect claims he was afraid of Nathan. If that were the case, why would he risk opening the front door to face a potential threat? Did he know Nathan was alone? He claims he had called 911 first. The question then comes up is why he did not wait for authorities to handle the matter? There are still many other questions.
He also claims that he had never met Nathan before, but we know for a fact that Nathan had been to their home many times to pick up and drop off his friend and was even had lunch or dinner. In typical Indian families, it is very strange that a father would be unaware or not know of a young man his daughter was seeing.
While the police have not yet provided the family with all the details, we have the utmost confidence in their expertise and faith in them. Upon questioning, the police advised the family that the process involved an investigation. Upon the completion of the investigation, the case would be submitted to the District Attorney, who in turn would submit it to the Grand Jury. The Grand Jury would then either indict or No-bill the assailant.
Harris County Police Department is currently working on the case, but the facts are that the department and the DA's office are overwhelmed. We just want to make sure that Nitin's case gets the attention it deserves and the case doesn't fall through the cracks and become one of those statistics.
All we are asking is that this matter be examined very carefully so that justice will be served.
The Hennepin County Juvenile court prosecutes so many false child Abuse cases that it is damaging families unnecessarily. I think that a class action suit should be filed against them for defamation of Character and Slander.
The courts take the word of a child mad at the time at their parent or guardian and file a report that goes to the police. Whether the police drop the case or not the Hennepin County prosecuter still gets a copy and files a suit on a dropped case. This means the innocent person then has to do some form of restitution for something that should never has been tried in the first place, and ends up with a record they don't deserve. They are faced with background checks and the inability to obtain decent jobs to provide a decent standard of lifestyle to children that are no longer angry.
The problem still remains that the child needs to get disciplined so they won't end up a menance to society but this is not taken into account when that same child that lied in the first place is stealing or vandalizing or some other horrific crime that could have been prevented before the right to discipline a child was taken away from their parent.

Dear Sheriff Crowder,
We are the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of the Treasure Coast. As such, we are dismayed to learn the office of sheriff is sponsoring a harsh, cruel event which inflicts pain on animals. The forthcoming rodeo fund raiser for the Florida Sheriff Youth Ranches is unacceptable and out of character to all the positive things you have done for animals in this community. Our organization is getting complaints about this on a daily basis. It would be an understatement to state that many people are very upset.
Rodeo attractions including tight straps about the abdomen and genitals of horses to make them "buck", the use of electric prods with electric currents to get the horses and cattle running, chasing and roping/tying of cattle and young calves are just a few of the cruel, painful events instilled on these victimized animals.
Encouraging inhumane episodes, especially in full view of children, is contradictory to our mission of kindness and compassion for all creatures. It is especially disturbing since many animal organizations here have worked together with your office to prohibit inhumane acts on animals in Martin County.
Martin County Animal Control Division protects the community against cruelty to animals, while Martin County Sheriff Department promotes it.

In most states there is only a 48 hour hold on the offender who commits domestic violence. The victim/s need more time to get their safety in order for themselves and their children.
The mandatory minimum sentence should be at least 30 days in the county jail before the offender is considered for O/R.

This petition is to show Livingston County and the State of Michigan that the residents within the above stated area do not want a speed limit that high. We would petetion to have the speed limit no higher than 35mph and 25mph around the curves.
Hillsborough County is breaking all state laws and violating peoples property rights, in the process destroying the financial means to fight them.

The rhea county high school wrestling team needs a facility to practice and compete in just the same as other sports at the school. The wrestling season lasts four months for the regular season. The team must share the gym with the basketball teams, volleyball teams and the baseball team. The team consists of at least 25 children during the regular season.
There is also the feeder program that has been gaining poularity in the last few years as wrestling becomes more popular in the state for competion sports. we currently have around 40 children enrolled in this program.
Texas' capitol building grounds in Austin has a monument depicting the Ten Commandments on it -- on public property.
The Supreme Court will "rule" whether or not this is legal or not (more than likely, if Alabama & Roy Moore are a reminder, it will be "illegal"), so I've come up with an idea: students and concerned citizens who cherish our republican form of government who live in and around Ellis County, Texas (Waxahachie-county seat) must band together to fight for our U.S. Constitutional rights of free speech and the free exercise thereof.
There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that prohibits a state from displaying a Ten Commandments monument, just as there is not a restriction barring construction workers from having portable bathrooms in public.
This petition serves as a voice for those who believe that this is a free speech issue.

85% of parents with children enrolled in the Yazoo county School systems voted against the rule that all children attending Yazoo County schools must wear school uniforms to school next year.
Most parents in Yazoo County are either poor or middle class and the expense of uniforms when they usually have to buy either off-brand clothes or second-hand clothes is just too much. Sending our children on field trips is expensive enough as it is when you have a hard enough time buying groceries and neccessities. Now the school board wants to add the extra expense of uniforms. The teachers voted 55% for uniforms. If the parents' votes were higher (85%), why did the school board vote to use uniforms against the parents' wishes? The children themselves will feel like just a number to the teachers with no individuality.
A child's clothing is an expression of his/her personality. I will not send my children to a school that infringes on their rights and the parents' pocket books with total disregard for the parent and child's feelings in this matter.
Stop the flooding in the vacinity of House and Peach Ridge Roads.
A 291-Unit Trailer Park is being imposed on the Huntington Township community of Adams County, Pennsylvania. The developer (Robert Mumma/Caco Three)has a very negative business track -- bankruptcy, neglecting properties, and frivolous lawsuits -- but has made large political contributions and has ample financial resources.
A grassroots effort by concerned citizens is working to stop this development from harming this community, and setting a dangerous precedent for other such areas. This scenic, rural area is known for it's historical significance (Gettysburg Battle), safe and peaceful communities, and farmland.
The negative effects of the development include higher taxes, environmental harm, overcrowded schools, safety and security problems, dangerous traffic congestion, and destruction of the natural beauty of this area.

A Community Member Petition.
The residents of Central Rd., south of Round Up Way in Apple Valley, were given the opportunity to self-maintain this portion of Central Rd. Twenty years ago (for the purpose of reducing their property taxes). Now with the changes of residents over the years, it has become a hardship for everyone to maintain the road. Now we are asking the County to list it as a, "County maintained road."
