Taylor vs. Taintor – 83 U.S. 366 (1872)
This U.S. Supreme Court Case is what most refer to regarding the rights to apprehend a fugitive for failure to appear (FTA) in court. The single paragraph below is commonly cited:
When bail is given, the principal is regarded as delivered to the custody of his sureties. Their dominion is a continuance of the original imprisonment. Whenever they choose to do so, they may seize him and deliver him up in their discharge; and if that cannot be done at once, they may imprison him until it can be done. They may exercise their rights in person or by agent. They may pursue him into another State; may arrest him on the Sabbath; and if necessary, may break and enter his house for that purpose. The seizure is not made by virtue of new process. None is needed. It is likened to the rearrest by the sheriff of an escaping prisoner.

LETS GET THIS 2ND PETITION EVEN HIGHER
THE COALITION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, LABOR UNIONS, CONCERNED CITIZENS FOR THE RELEASE OF IMPRISONED NYPD OFFICER RICHARD DIGUGLIELMO
We are requesting your support for a clemency application of Richard DiGuglielmo, a veteran of the New York Police Department who was convicted of depraved indifference murder after a series of tragic events in which Officer DiGuglielmo shot and killed a man who had struck Officer DiGuglielmo's father with a metal baseball bat. Additional information about Officer DiGuglielmo and his case is available at http://www.richarddiguglielmo.org/
As you may know Officer DiGuglielmo was convicted of a murder stemming from a 1996 off-duty incident where he effectively saved his father's life. A New York State Supreme Court Justice subsequently released Officer DiGuglielmo in 2008 only for Officer DiGuglielmo's conviction to be re-instated after 20 months of freedom by a NYS Court of Appeals decision. A recent and probably final decision by the United States Court of Appeals has affirmed the NYS Court of Appeals decision. In the courts opinion they effectively stated that Officer DiGuglielmo's gun was a more serious threat than the baseball bat used to strike his Officer DiGuglielmo's father with TWICE! The court further opined, that Charles Campbell lacked intent to use the baseball bat as a deadly weapon because he never struck DiGuglielmo Sr. near the head or other vital area!
Article 35 of the NYS Penal Law effectively states: A person may use physical force upon another person when and to the extent he or she reasonably believes such to be necessary to defend himself, herself or a third person from what he or she reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of unlawful physical force by such other person.
In People v. Talbert, the court held that an object as ordinary as a broom handle could be considered a weapon under the Penal Law if there exist the requisite intent to use the object unlawfully against another. The object in question was a broom handle…in Officer DiGUGLIELMO 'S CASE IT WAS A METAL BASEBALL BAT!
We have effectively come to a point of critical mass in relation to this case. The rulings by the NYS and Federal Appeals Courts in relation to this case have enormous ramifications nationwide for Police Officers, Peace Officers, and Citizens who may have to use deadly physical force. At this point there are no legal options left. We need your support in our effort to petition the NYS Governor Andrew M. Cuomo for clemency. We eagerly await your response.
There is a significant and undeniable link in society between animal cruelty and general criminal behaviour.
Offenders who commit acts of serious crime such as murder, sexual and indecent assaults, domestic violence, and arson, often have a history involving some degree of animal abuse.
Establishing an Animal Cruelty Register – which operates successfully in a number of states in the USA, including three New York County’s – would require every person convicted of an act of cruelty against an animal within New South Wales to record their names and personal details on the register.
The register would operate similar to the Child Protection Register where offenders will be responsible for ensuring their most up-to-date details and identifiable information is recorded, failing to do so would result in a fine.
Each offender will also be fined for the offence committed and this money would directly support the operation of the register.
The establishment of an animal cruelty register would benefit both humans and animals and would allow the fight against animal cruelty to shift to being more proactive. Rather then consistently fighting cruelty in a reactive manner, the register would allow authorities to keep an eye on offenders and to, effectively, prevent future abuse occurring.
All pet shops, shelters, breeders and rescue groups will have the ability to review the register prior to selling or adopting-out an animal to an individual.
The register would also enable law-enforcement bodies to search for potential offenders when an animal cruelty offence, or linked criminal offence, takes place in a certain region.
Please support, sign and share this petition. This will then be taken to NSW Parliament with all the signatures to show the government that members of the voting community want to see the establishment of an animal abuse register.
Thanks for supporting the animals.
Each year, thousands of applicants apply for a position in law enforcement. To apply for these positions, applicants are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement to apply and then later when they are denied employment based on unknown circumstances, they are left wondering what happened. In most cases, the applicant knows why they were denied employment but there are quite a few cases where there is an informant who has made claims regarding the applicants abilities or past conduct preventing them employment in that field.
While the state courts have made the claim that disclosure of adverse information regarding an applicant could prevent informants from coming forward with pertinent information regarding the employee, it results in a biased background investigation and a denial of employment wherever the applicant goes based on each background done following the applicant.
These non-disclosure agreements are very harmful to people who are applying for these types of jobs in a very competitive job market and to deny someone the right to know why they are not being selected is just wrong. The federal government doesn't allow this practice in their employment process so neither should the states. It is time for there to be more openness in the hiring of police officer applicants.
On October 27, 1967, two Northlake police officers were killed by bank robbers who were holding up the Northlake Bank. The killers were apprehended, tried and convicted.
One of the perpetrators has since died, another, anothers release is pending a final parole hearing, and a third, Ronald del Raine, sentenced to 209 years, has a parole hearing in October 2012. He is the last living offender of this heinous crime and does not deserve to be paroled.
The United States Parole commission made a decision to grant parole on January 6, 2010 for Ronald del Raine's accomplice Henry Gargano with a tentative release date of September or October 2010. The United States Parole commission made this decision without notification to the families of the slain officers or to the Northlake Police Department.
We CANNOT have have two cop killers roaming the streets and compromising officer or public safety in any capacity.
On April 19, 2010, the City Council passed a resolution condemning the action by the parole commission, and to honor the memories of Sergeant Nagle and Officer Perri and will seek to have the decision stayed or reversed.
The Northlake Police Department will be contacting the officers families and others to write victim impact letters to the parole commission as well as undertaking petitions and other measures to seek a reversal of this decision by the parole commission."
Police Officers daily fight a war on our homeland streets. They need to be duly recognized for their sacrifices and their lives as any other veteran of war. Their battle zone is not foreign lands but just as dangerous and their enemy is just as cunning.
The new chief of police in Pine Bluff, Arkansas has ordered that all law enforcement officers remove the United States flag from their uniforms.
John Morton the director of ICE won't be cooperating with Local Police Departments in Arizona to deport Illegal Aliens that have been booked & determined Illegal.
The ICE Director is siding with the Obama Administration saying the New Immigration Law goes too far & deemed as Racist & Unconstitutional.
Restrict handgun storage and use to shooting ranges in Canada and increase age of handgun ownership to 25 years.
To increase the safety of our communities and to protect members of society we ask that the age of handguns ownership be increased to age 25 and that handgun storage be restricted to shooting ranges and not transported in Canada.
10. Save our Oceans
After the failing of legally protecting sharks, bluefin tunas, who are considered by all to be endangered, by trade or otherwise.
Deep-sea bottom trawling is not prosecuted.
Numbers that were considered to be threatened 25 years ago, are still not protected though now endangered.
Our ocean's health is under threat by pollution but also by our use of the oceans.
This petition is to better our use of our oceans.
'Quiet Pima County' is an advocate/support group for all unfortunate people who suffer from the adverse effects of incessant dog barking. Our main objective is to change the laws and to sensitize law enforcement to the plight of chronic noise sufferers, as well as their own obligation to protect the public health.
Uncontrolled or excessive noise from dogs is detrimental to the physical mental and social well being of the residents of Pima County. Uncontrolled and particularly incessant barking of dogs or the making of noises from other animals can result in stress to people who are within audible range of such noise. Such stress can and does adversely affect the health of such individuals and interferes with the peaceable enjoyment of the property on which they reside.
The purpose of this Ordinance is to promote the public health safety and welfare by making it unlawful to permit an animal to create such an offensive situation by barking or otherwise creating detrimental noise.
A list of legitimate scientific groups that have official statements condemning the polygraph is extensive.
It includes the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, the Federation of American Scientists, and the Society of Professional Scientists and Engineers.
Even most government officials who support the polygraph do not maintain that the process is valid. They merely claim that the polygraph should remain because it "encourages admissions."
This same convoluted logic could also be used to defend physical beatings if they were a part of the hiring process.
This petition would permit local law enforcement to stop, detain and identify “Illegal Aliens” who they come into legal contact with. Most Illegal Aliens do not carry proper identification, and any identification they do carry is in most cases counterfeit.
Local law Enforcement would utilize the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (or AFIS) to identify these individuals to see if they are suspected of other crimes, wanted criminals, and if nothing else their finger prints would be entered into the system in the event of future criminal activity or contact with law enforcement.
Another option in addition to the above would be the mandatory DNA testing of all Illegal Aliens that have legal Law Enforcement contact. This would be done to ensure we are not permitting a criminal wanted in a DNA related crime to continue living amongst society. Again, many rapes, burglaries, and other violent felons are being committed by these individuals and this would be one sure way to catch an otherwise unknown subject who is permitted to remain in this Country illegally.
We, the undersigned, call for the immediate formation of a law enforcement oversight and review commission, comprised of private citizens, in Del Norte County.
In the past year the Four Corner area crime has been steadley rising due to the growth of the central Florida area. We have reached a population explosion in this area.
We have approximately 1 law enforcement to every 30,000 persons in this area.
Because we are so far on the end of the county we are lacking the proper attention for protection.
We need more law enforcement on duty or create our on city. We are in the middle of four counties and we need to take charge of our homes, businesses, and lives.
Help us to ensure that the town of Warwick, NY is next on the list of cities, towns, counties & states to pass a resolution to protect the civil liberties of their residents!
The USA PATRIOT Act, passed by Congress in the wake of 9/11 terrorist attacks, grants powers to law enforcement and intelligence gathering authoriites that can and are being used to undermine and otherwise violate the US Constitution.
On Aug. 14, 7:30, we present a petition to the Warwick Town Board requesting passage of a resolution against provisions of the Act which are a direct threat to our liberties. Please join us!
