1. ابوالقاسم (جواد) فولادوند FREE Abolghasem Fooladvand

According to reports from inside Iran on February 13, political prisoner Javad Fouladvand was sentenced to 18 years in prison because of his membership to the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and his contact and contribution to Simay-e Azadi, the Iranian Resistance TV, a round the clock satellite television station broadcasting from Europe. This sentence was handed down on February 8.

His torturers told him that they knew he made a contribution to Simay-e Azadi and collected money for it. They told him he had violated Islamic Republic law and committed Moharebeh, punishable by death.

Other reports indicate that Fouladvand’s family is in a poor financial situation. His youngest child is facing problems continuing his education and his oldest child lost an opportunity to participate in the nationwide test for entering universities. Even if he could take the test, his affiliation with a politically active family would make his admittance highly improbable.

Fouladvand officially asked that his wife would have the authority to sell their taxi or to rent it out as their only property to make ends meet. This transfer of authority was rejected by Judge Salavati as a means to bring added pressure on Fouladvand.
on 08 Feb 2014: Abol-Ghasem (Javad) Fouladvand Sentenced to 18 years in prison + 24 lashes for cooperation with MEK

2. Justice for Matty

A few months ago, a young man was assaulted by a Security Guard outside a Hobart Night Club, Syrup. Matty was in a coma for several long weeks. It is with such sadness that One Punch Campaign's Australia come to announce that Matt's prognosis of recovery has not been a good one.

The outcome of this assault on a fit healthy young man with a young family has been that he will now need 24 hour care for the rest of his life.

Mathew is paralysed down the left side of his body, Mathew can not sit up without support, Mathew can not get out of bed, Mathew is fed and will now always be fed for the rest of his life with a feeding tube, Mathew has to have a special Wheel chair made for him (which the family somehow have to pay for) so he can at least sit up out of Bed and be taken easier to where he needs to go. Who's going to pay for that? THE POLICE STILL HAVEN'T LAID ANY CHARGES and have advised the family they are not likely to.

Thankfully, a young lady on that night called for an ambulance, as the Security Guards did not whilst Matty lay unconcious on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Hardly self defence?

If this happened anywhere else in Australia, charges would have been laid the first few days. It is our responsibility as the residents of Hobart to ensure justice is served which hopefully will prevent such assaults in the future. Enough is enough. SO many lives ruined by acts of violence. Matty and his family need justice.

I ask everyone here to please get behind Matt and his family and sign this petition for something to be done! For charges to be laid! Matty's life is ruined forever due to another cowardly act of violence. We need to stand up and make a change and ensure that the person responsible pays for their crime!

We ask for your help. You can also support Matty and his family on their Face Book Page Wake Up Gunna - Matthew We All Love You!

3. Petition Against Consensual Sex For 12 To 15 Year Olds

As it stands the Sexual Offences Act considers consensual sex below the age of 16 to be an offence. The Amendment to the Sexual Offences Act seeks to reduce this age to 12.We consider this amendment to be absurd for the following reasons:

1. Psychologically under 16’s are not mature enough to make sexual decisions or understand the consequences thereof.

2. It exposes under 16’s to the risks of HIV/Aids and other STDs, prostitutions, statutory rape, abortion and child pornography.

3. It places an unfair burden on parents by taking away their rights to restrain their children from sexual activity. Children will be free to make their own decisions regarding sex.

4. School communities will become platforms for sexual activity for learners. Education staff will be unable to contend with sexually unruly and chaotic learners.

5. It will lead to an increase in teenage pregnancies. School drop-out will increase and unemployment and other socio-economic problems in the country will soar.

6. It violates the Child Protection Act because it will be “exposing or subjecting a child to behaviour that may harm the child psychologically or emotionally”.

7. It will encourage the growth of child pornography as an industry and other crimes in South Africa. International black-market demands will be made on SA since sex with under 16’s is illegal in other nations.

8. It will permit under 16’s to undertake abortions without the presence of parents or adult guardians.

Other nations, including the United States, do not promulgate consensual sex for under 16’s. If this amendment is successful it will make South Africa the most liberal nations in the world with regard to the age of sexual consent!

The authority to decide the destiny of minor children should lie with their parents/ guardians. As responsible citizens of South Africa we must prevent laws that expose our children to harm. The rights of our children are cannot be violated. The rights of children must be secured at all costs.

As parents, guardians and responsible citizens I sign this petition and thereby express my disapproval of the amendment to give under 16’s consent to engage in sexual activity.

4. Stop #RussellBrand's biggest joke

Comedian Russell Brand is considering a position in UK Politics.

Hopefully, this is nothing more than another joke from Russell...

For years, Russell has made us laugh with his witty, though often rude humour.

Sadly, we are now seeing yet another intelligent but misinformed person, blinded by blatant (though easily-debunked) lies about Israel/Palestine, that are so slickly and effectively advanced by the pro-Palestine propaganda machine, and repeated so often that they are believed and promoted as ‘truth’ by ill-informed masses and even by supposedly well-informed scholars (ref: Goebbels).

Brand supports a cause that can never lead to peace or justice for Palestinians, Jews, or anyone.

The Palestinian leaders, e.g. Hamas, call (in whichever way is most effective with each particular audience) for worldwide support in the achievement of their stated goals, which include ethnically cleansing the Middle East of Jews.

This and other goals are explicitly defined in the Hamas Covenant or Charter (1988), and is current today.
(See: fas.org/irp/world/para/docs/880818.htm; main points: fas.org/irp/world/para/docs/880818a.htm).

Hamas holds power and influence in leading and directing the Palestinian people, with little or no consideration for individual Palestinians' wishes or welfare, or for anyone’s wishes and efforts for peace and safety.

We ask everyone, especially those people in the UK Government, to take appropriate action to prevent Russell's latest joke from becoming a frightening reality.

Such extreme and dangerously misinformed views and misguided support, held by anyone in a position of power and influence, is a serious threat to us all.

Please sign for peace, justice and the human rights of all people - including all children, who will inherit the legacy of our social conscience and fabric.

5. We Want Justice For Dr Supriya

The conditions that forced Dr Supriya, (a third year paediatrics MD student, of DMC hospital, ludhiana) to commit suicide are no different than any other medical colleges of India. Her suicide note said that she cannot handle the stress any more.

There are many such stories of resident doctors all over India!

"MS , MD and DM students are under huge pressure in many ways:

1. Overworked ( 24 hrs duty, 36 hrs duty , 60 hrs duty with no post duty off day.
They get only 12 hrs to go to hostel to rest . Then again a long hr duty).

2. No vacations no summer or winter vacations. University gives a number of 20 CL per yr, which includes Sunday or gazetted or going to conference . So these becomes negligible. Plus college never gives a total of 20 CL provided by univ. Everything is in the hands of college. Total torture! No help desk for a resident.

3. Most of the residents are 27 plus age and they r not financially independent. As college asks for lakhs of fees per year with a negligible stipend of around 20 k per month , difficult to survive in today's world. So these doctors hv to ask money from parents or in-laws in case of a married doctor girl.

4. On top of it , consultants at each round abuse and scold the resident on duty . As there are always some important works left to be done , which is obvious from the amount of work given with a limited time and no help, seeing the patient burden these days.

5. Colleges can keep salaried non PG residents to help PG residents , but the management save their money and keep residents overworked.

6. On top of it, tortures, insults in front of the hospital staff and patients , threats of not giving degree on time.

7. No maternity benefits.

8. If someone is tired of all this , he/she cannot leave and let go BECAUSE there is a bond of lakhs of rupees.

9. Plus They have pressure to complete dissertation despite round the clock work, and become frustrated, which also reflects in their daily work.

10. Frustrated seniors can throw their tantrums on residents anytime , coz residents cant do anything in the fear of their cancellation of their hard- earned degrees!

These days patient load is increased. How can our seniors think that they have tolerated all these in their times, and so they ll pass it on to next generation.

Plz think seniors, there is a difference now!
Times are more stressful these days. If u ll apply old norms n rules on us , then v all wont survive!

We doctors are getting unhealthy, stressed. Lack of sleep is wrenching n killing . There r many more things too - we also hv families , female docs need to give time to their small babies. Most female residents join duty after 40 days of delivery, so that they are not delayed for a period of 6 months or 1 yr to get degree!

Plus many more probs!
Plz save us!
Plz help us!
We r fed up n tired!
Lets all join and fight!
Lets raise our voice!
So that no more precious lives are lost this way!

6. Justice for Daviere Bryant

Daviere Bryant was found on the back porch of his mother's home (Dalishia Salter) by his father (David Bryant Jr.) on September 13, 2014 at approximately 1:00 A.M. after receiving texts messages from the mother claiming she had beat him and he had knots on his head and was bleeding, she continue to say she put him out on the back porch near the trash. When the father arrived he found his child visibly bruised and swollen in his eyes, nose, and face.

The father did decide to video tape as he approached the porch just in case the mother's claim where in fact true. You can hear the mother in the video once confronted by the father say "I don't care I told you to come get him and I don't care I'll kill him". The video has gone viral and this mother has been charge with "endangering the welfare of a child", "assault", as well as many others. Doctor's did find signs of what they believe is prior abuse as well.

This mother's family is now seeking temporary custody of this child, Dalishia Salter has another child who is 4 years old that was already in foster care at the time of this incident. None of her family has stepped up to help her first child. No one fought for temporary custody of her other child. But now they want to pick and choose which child they want? Daviere was allegedly already beaten by his mother once and we can not trust her family to keep Dalishia safely away from this child now.

Text message as well as child's injuries:

7. Australians Demand Immigration Lawyers Be Held Accountable For Exploiting Australian Tax Payers

The human rights of Australian tax payers have been eroded due to changes in The Migration Act 1958.

The Migration Act 1958 contained clauses to protect Australian citizens from disease, any potential security risk, preservation of health and community services and control the risk to excessive drain on resources. These clauses have been removed from the Migration Act.

This has opened the door for Australia's generosity to be abused and exploited by those who have never contribution to the foundation or infrastructure of Australia.

This is not only grossly unfair to tax payers, it is a direct threat to our future as a nation.

Claims of mental and physical illness due to detention, do not take into consideration preexisting conditions relating to a life time of potential triggers prior to detention. Not to mention the dangerous journey these individuals and their small children chose and paid to undertake, exposing young and vulnerable women and children. To blame the host county is not only insulting and opportunistic, it is ludicrous and grossly unfair to tax payers.

The statistics on the prevalence of mental and physical health is available at The World Health Organistation and identify those most at risk and also the socioeconomic factors.

10. Reinstate vet student for her degree

Jamie Scott originally attended Ross University because she was informed that she would not have to perform surgeries she considered unethical. However, the university mandated that she partake in the killing of animals in order to graduate. Jamie was threatened with being flunked out if she did not perform terminal surgeries, and was harassed and unfairly discriminated against because of her views concerning animals. Ultimately she was unjustly dismissed despite helping and saving numerous animals’ lives. Ross University requires students to operate on healthy animals who are then killed or “terminated” at the end of their surgical procedures.

Terminal surgeries involve anesthetizing healthy animals including sheep, goats and donkeys and subjecting them to procedures that they don't need, such as tracheostomies, gastrotomies, and joint taps.

Many veterinary schools have replaced such terminal surgeries with effective and humane teaching tools. These humane alternatives include willed body cadaver donation programs, anatomy models, and survival surgeries performed under close faculty supervision such as spays, castrations, and mass removals on animals who actually benefit from the procedures.

The school continues to ignore requests to reinstate Jamie, including disregarding signed letters of endorsement from three practicing veterinarians.

13. End Government Corruption, SAVE GUY BENJAMIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!

Today, United States Virgin Islands Education Commissioner Donna Frett-Gregory officially announced the closing of Guy H. Benjamin Elementary School for the 2014-15 year at a meeting with GBS staff and parents this afternoon in Coral Bay.

There were meetings about what St. John residents wished to do for the children of the island in regards to their schooling and all requests and comments ignored. Teachers & Staff were told at 3 pm of its closing and at 5:30 pm met with parents to tell them the same.

They are stating that since 'enrollment has dropped' which technically is not so, they relocated all K and 1st graders across the island to Julius Sprauve School in Cruz Bay at the start of the 2013-2014 school year and many parents enrolled their older siblings to travel the long ride and better supervise the little ones so the numbers decreased, of course.

14. Child abuser Eunice Spry release - Location ban

'Britain’s most sadistic mother' will be let out of jail next month (July) – and will be re-homed just miles from the adopted children, (Victoria, Christopher and Alloma) she brutally tortured for nearly 20 years.

Eunice Spry, now 70, was originally jailed for 14 years in 2007 (lowered to 12 years on appeal) after she was convicted of 26 charges of disgusting child abuse against her two foster children and an adopted daughter.

Here are just some of the acts of depravity - Full information on the case including interviews with the victims can be found on this link: http://tiny.cc/t20pgx

During her reign of terror, Spry forced the children to drink bleach and urine, eat their own vomit, eat rat excrement, stand naked and cold for hours on end and even sandpapered the skin from the face and hands of one terrified child.

Brave Victoria was once tied up naked and left blindfolded – surviving on crusts and water – for THREE months.

Spry would regularly beat the children on the soles of the feet with a “variety of sticks”. The children would be “punched kicked and strangled”, and if they cried the sticks would be forced down their throats.

Christopher once had his hand held down on a hot electric hob until it was left looking like a “gooey mess”

Spry confined one girl to a wheelchair for three years after a car crash in a cynical bid to maximise compensation for the accident.

Spry even handed one child over to a sex predator, who she allowed to be sexually abused.

Unrepentant Spry has shown no remorse for her crimes and refuses to admit she carried out the heinous acts.

Spry is thought to have paid released prisoners to track down addresses on the outside – and while the three siblings are no longer scared of their evil ‘mother’, they fear she will track them down.

Victoria will be interviewed on TV on Monday by Holly and Phillip from THIS MORNING.

Please remember to sign this petition. We need to support the survivors of this abuse in their final quest for justice and allow them to live a life free from fear or harm.

15. Law enforcement officers should wear uniform-mounted surveillance cameras

It has recently been proven that officers, who were required to wear personal surveillance cameras while on duty, used less force and received a substantially reduced number of complaints from civilians.

It is widely known that people, who know they are being watched, tend to behave in a more responsible way.

From 2009-2010, an estimated 5,986 police misconduct claims were reported; 382 of these being homicidal violence reports. Meaning that there were 382 murders reported, from 2009-2010, that were the direct result of the unnecessary police misconduct and excessive force. In just this one year alone, the government spent $347,455,000 in related settlements and judgments.

As of 2012, it was reported that The U.S. federal government now spends over $50 billion on law enforcement each year. It is easily calculable to discover, that with the money the government spends on settlements and judgment processes alone, over 1.5 Million of these personal cameras could be purchased and put to good use by law enforcement agencies. Also as of 2012, the US employed an estimated 780,000 officers; meaning that there could easily be surveillance of any and all police disputes and situations.

The money spent by the government, that is now being used to investigate and settle these claims, would then be substantially reduced as a result of the use of these body-worn cameras.

Of these 5,986 police misconduct claims, only 33% of officers ever faced any trial or conviction process at all. With the average length of time spent in prison being only 14 months for officers. In the United States, the average prison sentence for a civilian who commits any violent crime is 66 months; not including those who are sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty.

Police badges should NOT grant officers any extra rights or excuses from these penalties. The police are NOT the law. They enforce the law, but they as officers and US citizens, must also be required to abide by these same laws and punishments. These videos would provide evidence, not only against out-of-control officers, but also against criminals who are wounded or killed while being pursued by these officers; Leading to quicker and less costly investigations, and of course more accurate evidence of the events that really occurred.

16. Independent Review of the file and the I.I.O. Report of Gregory John Matters

Regarding the death and inquest of Gregory John Matters, there have been too many flaws in the report by Richard Rosenthal.

It was reported that Gregory Matters was shot twice in the chest, when in fact the autopsy report and forensic pathologist's testimony indicated that Gregory was shot twice in the back. Cpl. Warwick, a member of the E.R.T shot Gregory twice, and did not provide a contemporaneous account of what happened. The R.C.M.P did not have a warrant of any kind.

17. People's Justice against Crime

"The Sovereign Filipino People propose to adopt a National Jury Law to minimize government corruption and serious civil/criminal offenses.

A Device for Crime Prevention,
To Achieve National Unity

The Jury System shall operate by instruction to the people who will serve as jurors. The instruction consists of the Grand Jury Instruction and the Trial Jury Instruction. In both forms of instruction, they shall be issued under the tutelage of the presiding judge. These instructions will be uniform in their application throughout the country. This will logically result in the reduction of crimes and naturally pave the way to national unity.

The Jury System shall become the “school of law” under the supervision by lawful authorities, the judges all over the land, 5 days a week, and 52 weeks a year. This is tantamount to mass legal education of the people about their civic responsibilities. By training the people with good citizenship rules coupled with their power to decide in justice, the logical result will be a great reduction in the extent of lawlessness and government corruption in the Philippines.

Without the jury systems, where else shall the people get their education for "good" citizenship and loyalty to their government? Well, of course, from outlaws such as criminal gang leaders, death squad masterminds, or rebel leaders who teach people how to kill people; how to ambush peacekeepers; how to rob, how to murder and how to massacre people; how to fight petty wars between and against opposing tribes due to their rivalry in courtship, business, and in politics.

In the proposed jury systems law, continuous trial with no more than 3 days of postponement, except in life threatening situation, will be mandatory making any lawyer or presiding judge or any party liable for the crime of obstruction of justice upon indictment by the grand jury for the violation of this rule. Administration of justice will speed up that will significantly reduce criminality in the community. With less incidence of crimes, it will promote peace and encourage unity among the Filipino people.

19. Justice for Niqua

Sanequa Janine Congdon was a happy, fun, & energetic young lady. More than the average 21yr old because she worked hard for herself & her family. Employed by the State of Ohio, she took value in her job & loved her two little boys ages 2 & 3 yrs old more than the world knew. Full of love & life she was very close to her mother, younger sister & family.

On September 26, 1996 Sanequa was approached by James Spencer who forced her into his car kidnapping her. He drove her to a rural area where he shot her 6 times then left her lifeless body to die. Spencer was arrested and charged with murder after returning to the scene looking very suspicious.

Her name was Chloe Valentine, and she was 4 years old!

During January 2012, Chloe Valentine was tortured and killed by the 2 people entrusted to love her, care for her, protect her and provide her a safe & happy home.

Over 4 days, Chloe Valentine, a 4 year old child, was forced to ride a 50 kilogram motorbike over and over and over, while Ashlee Jean Polkinghorne and Benjamin Robert McPartland sat video recording, what was to be, a very terrified, 4 year old Chloe's slow and torturous death. Laughing, as they watched Chloe crash into objects and repetitively being thrown from the motorbike, until such time little Chloe was knocked unconscious (day 4).

Little Chloe was left lying for hours, slowly dying from her horrific injuries. Google searches and Facebook accounts were checked, before '000' was finally called. Chloe Valentine's injuries were so severe that some of her family members were unable to recognize her tiny bruised and swollen body.

For their heinous crimes and treatment of this innocent child, Ashlee Jean Polkinghorne and Benjamin Robert McPartland, received a 4 year and two month non-parole jail term, out of a mere 7 years in total.

21. Establish and support the International Tribunal of Reparation

This petition is conceived as the logical next step to several initiatives that the Organization of African Unity, currently African Union, United Nations, Republic of Haiti, Caribbean Community (Caricom), and civil society have undertaken to eliminate the impact of slavery, racism, discrimination and related exclusion.

On the borders of certain countries (e.g., Israel and United States) fences are built to socially isolate, exclude and/or separate targeted communities formed of individuals that are deemed illegal by national laws. In most of those cases, significant numbers of people (e.g., Somalis, Congolese, Syrians, etc.), due to religious, ethnic, and racial conflicts, are forced to resettle in refugee camps and/or faraway countries where they have no previous ties. While the factors underlying such cases vary; by and large, the results are seizures of land, property, resources, and other possessions of these families that are displaced. For instance, the recent decision of the Constitutional Court of the Dominican Republic (case number 168-13) to render thousands of Dominicans Stateless on the basis of their African ancestry calls to question the Cultural Heritage of the Island of Ayiti, which African Studies, as well as the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), recognize as the Nation where Africans rose to affirm their humanity in the New World.

These alarming situations do not mean the whole world is facing a new phenomenon, However, they do indicate widespread systemic impunity, and denial of due process. In a general sense, specific attention should be focus on the plight of Africans who for more than a century have presented a valid case for Reparations from Slavery. While this request continues to be formulated, no court of law has deemed it necessary to adjudicate their claim. However, Reparation is not such a controversial issue; for instance, the U.S. government formally apologized for the internments of nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans that were forcibly relocated and confined by the U.S. military following Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, by signing into law the Civil Liberties Act on August 10, 1988. This law also granted reparations to surviving internees and their families.

The case for Restitution and Reparation is considered beyond dispute by many thinkers, policymakers, and advocates who cite negative health outcomes from Slavery and Racism among significant segments of the world’s population. In a seminal report, the Boston Public Health Commission published in 2005, the researchers found racism to be a leading contributor to Health Disparities among Blacks and Latinos. Such findings are easily corroborated by other reports such as the UN’s annual Human Development Index (HDI) that shows most Africans on the continent and abroad occupy the lowest echelon for life expectancy, income, and education (http://hdr.undp.org/sites/default/files/hdr2013_en_summary.pdf).

Therefore, the most effective manner to address those egregious cases, such as the thousands of Dominicans rendered Stateless, is to convene a judicial process for the victims to seek redress to their grievances based on this common accord: “National laws are subservient to International Courts” (The Economist, December, 2013).

22. Justice for Tia the Akita

TIA's STORY

In September 2013 my husband and I were asked to take Tia in as an emergency foster for a well known Akita rescue.

She was in a complete state of anxiety when she first arrived in foster and had to be taken to the vet, who gave her tranquillizers for 10 days. She was terrified of people, animals, cars, loud noises, everything really.

Whilst in our care we have worked patiently and slowly with her, and, with the help of our other Akita's, Bruce and Amber, plus... lots of socialising, Tia has become a more confident dog than she was. She is still anxious in new situations, but she looks to us and our dogs, and knows she is safe.

When she came to us Tia was having her first season. As directed by the charity we took her to our vet and it was agreed that she would be spayed at the beginning of December 13, the safest time to spay a bitch.

A family had already successfully applied to adopt Tia, but they had an uneutered male so it was agreed that she would go to them after she had recovered from her spaying. They were willing to feed Tia raw too as she won’t tolerate anything else.

Unfortunately events meant that the rescue decided that the new home was unsuitable. So we then applied to adopt Tia.

Since late November we have been fighting to keep Tia with us. The rescue say we are unsuitable because we have a bitch already. We were good enough in September, so why the change of heart? We are experienced Akita owners, we are fortunate enough to be able to be with our dogs most of the time. On the rare occasion when we do leave them for an hour we always separate them, in the unlikely event that anything untoward should happen.

Just recently we noticed a crunch in Tias hind when she was being dried after a walk.. Of course we took her to the vet who told us she had luxcating patella, more investigations are needed to determine the severity of this.

In the meantime her exercise is limited. We take her for hydrotherapy and she has a massage every couple of weeks and we live in a bungalow, so no stairs have to be negotiated.

We have never received any support, either personally or financially from the rescue in question.

Anything Tia has needed she has been bought by ourselves, we have paid for all her food, massages, hydro sessions, worming, fleas, treats, toys, games, collar and leads everything.

We have lost complete confidence in this rescue in giving Tia the home she needs.

We love her, our dogs adore her and likewise. She is safe and secure with us.

Please help us in our fight to keep Tia in our loving secure home.

24. Justice for Susan Soldierson

Dear Friends,

Our family is trying to block parole for three inmates convicted for the death of Susan Soldierson, our daughter and sister, on June 27, 1986. At their trial before Judge Morgan in Summit County, they were found guilty of the following:

Aggravated Robbery- 10-25 years
Kidnapping- 10-25 years
Involuntary Manslaughter- 10-25 years

The Judge ordered these be served CONSECUTIVELY for a minimum sentence of 30 years since 1986.

At the time of the trial and since then, they have showed no remorse. Lockett and Young at the age of 17, had extensive juvenile records and were bound over at trial and charged as adults. Logan had just been released from his parole officer, after serving a breaking and entering charge for TWO MONTHS, prior to Susan's death. He was 22 and the car's driver.

Our family fears for our safety and the safety of the community. Decisions will be made on Logan by the end of MARCH. We would be most grateful for any email or letter sent to the following, making sure to include their names and inmate numbers:

Re: Victor Logan # A193583
Marcazuan Lockett # R138937
Albert Young # R138938

Mail: Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections

25. Child Abuse Videos Reported to Facebook to be Forwarded to Police

I have seen so many videos on Facebook that are most disturbing and upsetting. Videos that are reported are not always taken seriously and should be. Clicking 'I don't want to see this' does not stop the abuse that is happening to the children in the videos.

27. Justice for Ryan Hacke

On January 11, 1997, fourteen month old Ryan Hacke was violently killed when struck in the eye by a stray bullet. While awaiting trial on felony charges in connection with the severe beating and rape of a 54-year old woman, Vaughn Mathis fired 9 shots from a semi-automatic handgun into a crowded gas station in an attempt kill another person and, in the process, murdered baby Ryan.

After being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and related charges, he was sentenced to six and a half to thirteen years in prison. These charges were to run consecutively with the felony convictions from the rape trial. After serving only a portion of his sentence, this life-long criminal is now eligible for parole and release back into society.

Since the age of 16, this constant criminal recidivist had been convicted of crimes in eight of the nine years prior to his current incarceration. Charges include drug trafficking, assault, reckless endangerment, terroristic threats, unlawful restraint and criminal mischief.

He has taken the life of an innocent child and permanently altered the lives of each heart-broken member of Ryan's surviving family. We feel that the only remaining justice would be to deny parole and have him serve the full measure of his legally imposed sentence.

29. Change Coral Millerchip's charge to Manslaughter

Coral Millerchip, from Coventry, has been charged with one count of assault and has been remanded in custody.

Coral Millerchip, 19, was filmed battering defenceless Joginder Singh and knocking his turban off during a daylight attack in Coventry.

This vile creature pleaded guilty to assault and now the police are considering whether to change the charge from assault to manslaughter as Joginder Singh has now sadly passed away after spending time in and out of hospital constantly after the attack.

Many believe that the cause of his death is due to the stress and trauma of what Millerchip subjected this poor man to!

Sign this petition and let's try and hope that our justice system prevails for once and changes her charge to manslaughter!
