To cite just one statistics, police killed more people in the U.S. in April than Great Britain did in the entire 20th century. We have all seen other statistics equally alarming.
It is the nearly weekly videos of obvious killings, from breaking the neck of a young man who did nothing wrong, to killing two teens whose car had backfired and took 62 chasing cars, over 100 cops, hundreds of shots fired at the unarmed kids on a date, the officer who shot 42 times through windshield of stopped car that finally killed them released by judge who found him not guilty, to shooting and then planting evidence of a taser on the body of what had been a fleeing suspect fearful because of owed child support but stopped for a rear light being out, to choking a man to death for selling loose smokes, to .....it goes on and on.
So far, the cop who planted evidence has been charged and the cops who broke the mans neck have been charged. In no other case was a cop even charged for killing an unarmed person.
Throughout the years and not to mention recent news we have been seeing a spike of police related killings and beating across the nation. And in mostly every case the officer or officers are not even charged or is exonerated because of the "It's our officer's word over the criminal's word."
The sad part is that every victim ISN'T a criminal. Police are SUPPOSED to PROTECT and SERVE. That isn't the case for most. When will enough be enough?When it hits home?Or next door? Is this what all these taxpayers are working hard for? To have friends and family gunned down, beat down, framed, and etc? When will WE as a nation say "Enough is enough!".
When will we as the PEOPLE of the proclaimed "Land of The Free" actually be free of this murderous and cowardly hold that they have over us. This isn't a race thing.I am fighting for US, the people of America.Will I fight alone, Yes I Will! Is this what we want for our children? Our grandchildren? Our future? YOU'RE future? We fight for issues that hold no relevance in our lives. NOW let's fight FOR our lives! Our CHILDREN lives!
The world appears to be up-side down do you agree?
• Those elected to promote and advance social order are often seen promoting the opposite
• The "Thin blue line", which keeps civilized society safe is being portrayed as lawless
• The undermining of the criminal justice system that has worked for 800 years is best exemplified by politicians who are working to disrupt our system of protection for all of us
• Politicians and provocateurs are dividing us; the mob has replaced the justice system
• Political correctness is forcing reasonable people to remain silent
• Some in the media have lost their common sense and journalist mission
• The criminal justice system protects us from an over reaching government and criminal elements
• The grand jury system is there for the protection of the public from government over reach.
• Is a civilized society still a viable way to proceed?
• Every day our police officers and other law enforcement professionals risk their lives to bring peace and order to our society.
• Will you join us???
We, the citizens of Geraldton, W.A., are afraid for our families, our homes, and our businesses. While we have contacted our state and local government on many occasions, we feel we are being ignored.
Our local politicians seem to pass the blame, yet one thing continues to grow... crime.
Crime in Geraldton has been rampant and increasing steadily. Drugs are out of control, children are being trained by adults to commit crimes, vandalism of schools is happening on weekends only to be found by staff on Monday mornings.
Car thefts, arson, breaking and entering, shoplifting, public displays of indecency, public drunkenness, bullying, and truancy by children who are "working" at night to aid parents with their next "fix" are all centre to the problems here.
We need help now to regain control of our city and eliminate drug trafficking via our port city.
After all the recents events going on in the United States I am Petitioning All Police Supporters that think our MEN IN BLUE lives should not be put in Danger for the simple fact that they are afraid to defend themselves because they feel they need to be shot at before they can defend themselves lawfully.
I am petitioning that police SHOULD be able to Tazer anyone that they feel the threat is going for a weapon/gun. I just think police should have a method in line that allows them to know what they can do in EVERY case when they feel someone is going for a weapon.
The Redhanded Campaign has put into a publication official documentation that proves law enforcement officials are breaking the law before Grand juries and that prosecutors are aiding & abetting the criminal conduct and that members of the judiciary are covering it up.
Police in Durham NC engaged in brutality and repression on Friday December 5. We need to see change. They need to know we are not going to take this anymore. We want Chief Lopez to do his job. We want to be able to peacefully assemble.

Crime in Singleton has risen quite considerably and police presence has been poor. Car theft, break ins, assaults seem to be on the rise. Some incidents reported no police presence at all.
We petition to have a 24/7 manned police station in Singleton, NSW.
The Community involvement in this petition is to assist with more police presence and help in the safety of our community.
Mr. President, the state sanctioned murders of Black people are the highest in the nation and emerges out of a national climate where systemic racism eats away the heart of our union and democracy.
1000 Black people murdered by police since 2007. As shocking as it is, this is a low figure. Many deaths remain unrecorded and fall under categories such as suspicious deaths as does the death of seventeen year old Black football star Lennon Lacy who was found hanging from a tree in a trailer park in Bladenboro, North Carolina. He was dating a White woman.
In the case of police, these murders are not m isolated incidents where they kill a few individuals. Rather, the overwhelming evidence shows that the police profiles the entire Black community even children.
I would like to see a police booth manned 24hrs a day near Glenorchy bus mall.....
Even when police station was within sight and earshot of this well known troubled area, it still seemed there was constant trouble!
Violence, foul language, robberies even all in brawls all occur here quite frequently.
Now the police station has moved further out of Glenorchy City I would like to see a booth of some description installed in this area.
I feel it must be in extremely close proximity to the troubled bus mall and I would propose maybe the council giving up a corner of it's carpark closest to the bus mall for such a booth or maybe even attach to The Pensioners Union building there in some way?
There is an urgent need for this please sign this petition.
This petition is for the creation of a local law for the Lauderdale County Police Department and Florence City Police Department to be required to wear body cameras when on duty and during any interaction with the public or civilians.
Every officer should record interactions that take place from any stop, arrest, questioning, detaining, or general interaction with the public for the safety of the police officers and the civilians they interact with alike.
In the face of unfounded growing opposition and a call for the resignation of certain officials in the city of Ferguson, Mo, it is important that long time citizens voice their support for our public servants.
The city of Newport is looking for ways to cut costs ahead of its 2015 budget planning and has begun talking with local law enforcement agencies about the possibility of sharing police services.
The Mayor, City Administrator and certain Council Members are looking at St. Paul Park, Washington County Sheriff Department as well as Cottage Grove police in order to eliminate our police to save money.
This action will affect every citizen, business and future business in Newport.
The Goverment of Croatia hasn't established real-working Animal Police, so hereby we are DEMANDING from them to establish Animal Police in each City!

We need change when it comes to Law Enforcement in America. We need to come together to change the way police officers use excessive force.
The Civilian Complaint Review Board, an independent city agency that investigates allegations of police abuse, logged 233 allegations involving chokeholds in 2013, making up to 4.4% of the excessive-force complaints it received.
Although only a tiny fraction of the chokehold complaints that the agency receives are ever substantiated, the number of complaints has generally been rising.
Police in Eugene plan to do a no option blood check setup on the 4th of July this year. I see this as unconstitutional.
No one should be allowed to hold down a human and take there blood without permission from that individual.
In the last few years there have been an increase of cops killing family dogs all across America.
There are several videos of police shooting and killing innocent dogs that are not even doing anything, and it is so unnecessary.
All you have to do is do a search online and you will see how many dogs were shot and killed when they did not need to be. We hear about this daily, it is happening everywhere and it's because no one is doing a thing about it. These officers are shooting innocent animals right in front of the families and children.
Majority of the shootings that take place the dogs are not even doing anything, we also hear about the officers slashing the dogs by the throat, something has to be done about this, the police policy states they are allowed to shoot if necessary....they are taking advantage and shooting even though they did not need to do so.....These are family members. These aren't "just dogs".
There is another solution. Animal control officers should be called to assist. Police officers need proper training on how to humanely secure the dog.
This is wrong!
The government of Jamaica has announced increase of fines for all vehicular offences to over 200% for this financial period.
At no point in time should any government consider to impose an increase so draconian in nature.
This is exorbitant and unreasonable to the people of Jamaica. The increased fines on vehicular offence should be 25% or less.
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.
Cops are taking advantage of their power. Their job is to protect and serve. We should not feel threatened by cops or be interrogated for no reason. The real criminals get away with their crimes. Police officers are meant to keep us safe.
Police officers should only carry tasers or guns if they get a call with a suspect with a weapon. Many times when officers are bored they find people to write tickets to.
We pay for this service. Yes it is a service so why are we getting taken advantage of?
The issue of domestic abuse and the subsequent forced removal of children from the victim is reinforcing the abuse. Institutions that exist to help the victims such as the Social Services, Police and Judicial System are failing victims because of the sigma attached to being a victim of abuse.
The most common complaint from victims is one of feeling punished for being a victim rather than feeling empowered. The amount of hoops a victim has to jump thru in order to get her children back whilst her every move is scrutinised by social workers who have not received adequate training o recognise the dynamics of abuse is shocking.
No other institution could operate a viable service like this so hen why is the Social services being allowed to continue to abuse and misuse its powers and continue to remove children from mothers when their focus should be directed towards helping the mothers and children break that cycle.
I am just an ordinary person from the Netherlands helping a Japanese citizen. He is victim of many crimes but nobody is helping him. I stay now in Kagoshima, and I am trying to get help from the Police in Kagoshima. However they are not helping me. I am now also a victim of theft and the case has a lot to do with Masahiko Kobayashi but now we both don't get any help.
Please read our blogs and English/Japanese stories and check the proof yourself....
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.
The justice minister Kenny MacAskill MSP stated “We know there is corruption within Scottish justice system” we find this is totally unacceptable.
The foundation of any democracy is its justice system and if parts of this system are corrupt, then we do not have real democracy.
Corruption undermines every aspect of our society and this campaign calls for compulsory random drug testing for anyone involved within the court system.
As in many other professions regular random drug testing is the norm in order to protect the public and the integrity of that profession, therefore we call for random drug testing to be introduced within specific sectors within the court system. This should include solicitors representing clients.
We believe that this will restore the public’s faith in the Scottish justice system. Therefore I hope you will sign our petition to introduce regular drug testing of those who work or earn their living from the Scottish legal system.
With an increase in crime in our area since November 2013, we the community feel that a community safety forum needs to be held in order to discuss the issues between Council, Police, Local Politicians and the local community and other stakeholders.

Sri Lanka traffic police have prohibited full face helmets since today (07/11/2013).
We can not accept this as people.
Because safety is the best.
In 1922, the Queensland politicians of the day decided to disband the Legislative Council. The Upper House. The House of Review. It was not a decision of The People of Queensland, nor was it their will.
It was a political expedient to remove barriers to dictatorial control of the State of Queensland for the benefit of political parties and those who controlled them, i.e. companies, now more expressively known as corporations.
The passage of draconian laws recently by the Legislative Assembly, where one coalition of parties holds a huge percentage of the seats in that house, demonstrates that we need the Legislative Council as a House of Review to prevent further introduction of laws that remove the rights of The People.
The current "government" of Queensland is out of the control of The People and needs to be reined in and that can only be properly be done by a Legislative Council.
A permanent Police presence is needed in Kurri Kurri NSW. There is a population of around 20000 people and there is not enough Police presence protecting Businesses, Families and our community.
In the past month alone there has been one of the well known & respected takeaway food owners bashed in Barton Street and another business man & his wife were attacked by a gang of youth.
Lets lobby together to the Councillors of our local LGA to lobby to state government to get action.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
In October 2012, Bedfordshire Police introduced new working practices, with officers starting and ending shifts in Luton or Bedford.
