1. Keep our Police Force for our town of Orangeville

Our town counsel is considering having the Ontario Provincial Police Force take over the policing for our town of Orangeville.

2. Bring Congress back from Recess

Under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, we ask the President to call a Special Session of Congress.

This Special Session should address these 3 items:

1.) Human Rights
Action: a. Outlining the rights of Civilians (when apprehended or detained in Police custody, the process of public defense, easier process to restore voting rights to returning citizens) and -
b. the rights of police (proper/unified training, psychological evaluations, fair wages/ treatment for PTSD)

2.) Race Relations
Action: a. Updating the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include anti-profiling language & increased funding to Community Relations Service (CRS)

3.) Gun Control
Action: Background Checks for those seeking to obtain a firearm and closing the Gun Show Loophole. A vote on reinstating the Federal Assault Weapon Ban.

3. Body Cameras for LEO's in Missouri

It is our belief that having Body Cams required for every patrolling LEO in Missouri will not only help to exonerate the majority of Police Officers but it will also work to weed out the smaller percentage of Officers who have no business wearing a Uniform and a Badge.

It will take most of the questions and hearsay out of the terrible instances where there has been a crime committed and at the same time it would work to bridge the gap between LEO's and our communities.

With your signature we'll work towards introducing legislation to make sure that LEO interaction with civilians are safer and everyone is held more accountable for their own actions.

4. Stop Police Brutality

In 2015, the highest number of deaths caused by police brutality falls in line with the African-American race. These people were murdered by those who "serve and protect", they were unarmed. That number has doubled over the past year. Isn't it eerie that 37% killed were blacks?

Media covers everything except our people who are falling victim to police brutality. India Kager, Chandra Weaver, Keith Childress, Tiara Thomas, Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Nicholas Thomas, and now Alton Sterling have all fallen victim to MURDER. No weapons. It's safe to say that the black community is and always will be target if we don't fight for our rights.

Visit www.mappingpoliceviolence.org/unarmed/ for more information in regards to these deaths.

5. Save the Galveston Police Department

Recently the town board of Galveston, Indiana discovered they will have a large budget cutback due to loss of funds and lower funding from the state than expected.

They are in talks that the best course of action may be to cut the current police force down to one officer. Currently the town has three paid officer positions and eight reserve (unpaid) officers. The current number allows the officers to take days off and still provide safety and security to the town. However if some members of the town board have their way it will be depleted down to one officer. This will cut police protection down to a mere 8 hours for 5 days a week. In addition it will prevent that one officer from having any time off with family. Leaving him in a very unsafe situation. Back-up being miles away he could be all alone dealing with dangerous situations at any given moment.

Ultimately this decision will put the entire county at risk. The sheriffs' department will have to respond to a larger area and leaving other areas of the county unprotected. This decision is a huge one. It will put lives at risk just because certain town members refuse to look at other non-essential items and cut back.

Just like you do your budget at home and cut back and remove items you don't need, certain members of this board have decided the police are non-essential. Sign for your families safety.

6. Fix Florida's Law to stop Police Corruption

To fix the corruption in the police force and stop abuse.

To stop corruption there should be more support for putting cameras on police cars and the officer, deeper investigations that look at any incident from all angles, and a stronger regulations and punishment for convicted officers.

7. No to the North Carolina zero tolerance speeding law

North Carolina will start this new zero tolerance rule on speeding stating that the myth of 5 miles per hour over the speed limit is a joke and now they are going to show everybody by issuing speeding tickets based on zero tolerance. One mile over the speed limit means you will get a ticket.

To drive exactly 55 or 40 or 35 exactly is impossible in fact Google autonomous cars can't even do this. In fact not even your cruise control can do this.

So it all points to the fact that North Carolina has decided we need more money so let's beat up our residents and all tourism.

Well let me just say that we vacation several times a year, often in North Carolina. We spend a lot of time gem hunting and gold prospecting in North Carolina, but with this new "speeding" law we will boycott North Carolina. The state is looking for money from drivers for no good reason.

8. Burst the Bubble

Police Forces in England & Wales were recently inspected on "Police Legitimacy" which includes "ethical culture" and "whether the force understand, engage with and treat fairly the people it serve..."

North Wales Police received a 'GOOD' rating in this inspection; however North Wales Police and Cheshire are two of the few forces to use the controversial restrictive 'bubble' to convey ALL fans to and from derby football matches between Wrexham and Chester and vice versa.

The use of the 'bubble' has been the subject of much criticism of law abiding fans of both Chester and Wrexham Football Clubs who resent having their freedom curtailed by an arbitrary, disproportionate and unfair method of policing. They further resent their categorisation and stereotyping as football hooligans and general troublemakers.

The Inspectorate make no mention of the fact that they inspected football policing methods in their report and we must therefore conclude that they did not.

9. Remove police fine quotas in NZ

The New Zealand police should not have to fulfill a set amount of tickets, fines and arrests. Their duty is to serve and protect not collect revenue. The police should be focused on people commiting serious crimes not someone who was going 5 km over the speed limit.

Yes repeated offenders need to be punished but sitting behind cover on the crown of a hill and collecting plate numbers and issueing a fine without actually stopping the person who can then go onto have an accident is wrong and purely revenue gathering.

Please sign my petition to get rid of the quota so the police can do what they are supposed to do. Prevent crime and help people.

10. Shut down King street in honor of Jeremy McDole

We want to be heard and seen during a peaceful protest rally for the justice of Jeremy McDole. We want answers, we want this investigation to go deeper then it is.

We won't forget nor let this go! S

hut down King Street at 6 p.m. and let us bring a chair and sit, no violence, we want to stand for Jeremy.

11. Prosecute Rogue Officers in Kenya

A group of high school students traveling from Nyeri County for their August holidays were stopped by officers from Kiangwachi Police Patrol Base in Kirinyaga County and ordered out.

They were frisked, stripped naked and their photos taken (half naked) and the photos shared on social media.

This is contrary to Chapter 4 Article 28 on Human Dignity and Article 31 on Privacy.

12. Release of Innocent 62 Muslim children Arrested in Sealdah station Kolkata, India

62 Innocent Muslims children below 10 years old all of whom were Madrasa students have been forcefully arrested by Sealdah GRP Police, KOLKATA, INDIA...

They were travelling with the head of the madarsa from purnia from sealdah station. They had full reservation and proper documents but they are held in police custody.

Police accusing that they are terrorists. All children are below 10 years old ... even after all the students were carrying identity proof with them.

13. Stop police from murdering unarmed citizens

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.

14. America's Police Should Be Required To Wear Working Body Cameras

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!

15. Support Your Local Police

The world appears to be up-side down do you agree?

Consider this:

• 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???

16. Stop Crime in Geraldton NOW

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.

17. Police should be allowed to tazer anyone going for a gun

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.

18. RedHanded Campaign

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.

19. Durham Against Militarized Police Brutality

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.

20. WE NEED A 24/7 POLICE PRESENCE in Singleton NSW

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.

21. Stop the State Sanctioned Murders and Torture of Black People

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.

22. Boost Police Presence in Glenorchy

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.

23. Nothing To Hide 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.

24. Support Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson

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.

25. Do not allow our City to outsource its police department

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.

26. Demand the Croatian goverment to urgently establish effective Animal Police in each city

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!

Please Sign & ˝Share˝ around!

27. Justice needed after routine arrest goes tragically wrong

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.

28. No to forced blood checks

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.

29. Stop Law Enforcement From Shooting Dogs

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!

30. Increase of fines for vehicular offences should by limited, NOT 200%

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.
