1. Pardon Kristian Saucier

Whereas during your 2016 campaign you cited the clear injustice and obvious inequality of Naval Submariner Kristian Saucier and Hillary Clinton in the mishandling of classified information,

Whereas Saucier who admitted to his error that was done when he was 22 years old and has proudly served our country for 11 years with the hope of making the Navy a career,

Whereas Saucier was repeatedly given excellent reviews by his supervisors and had risen in rank to US Navy 1st Class Petty Officer (E-6),

Whereas two other Navy men who did the same thing in mishandling "confidential information" a low level classification, remain in the military pursuing their naval careers. Their punishment fit the infraction, and did not include any prison time or dishonorable discharge and loss of benefits. Their military careers went forward, while Saucier's reputation and career was derailed,

Whereas Saucier did not face a military court though he was sill in the Navy at the time, but his case was taken up in a civilian court,

Whereas, as Saucier says in his own words, "I served my country for 11 years, I did two tours in the Middle East, and I would like to have my good name back, that's what's most important to me," he said. "Nothing can give me back the year I lost with my daughter and wife in prison, but a pardon would definitely restore my good name."

Whereas the consequences of what most would consider a "rookie error" without malice and in face of what some elites, politicians, and generals by comparison have done, we the undersigned, petition our Commander In Chief to consider this matter as you said you would during the 2016 campaign. We humbly request that you right this wrong, pardon Kristian Saucier, US Navy 1st Class Petty Officer for his eleven years of exemplary service in the Navy, Honorably Discharge him with all associated benefits.

Thank you for your consideration,

2. Pardon the Water Protectors

5. Deny the Pardon Request of Convicted Felon William Wright

On 12/02/1997, William Wright entered Castner Knotts retail store in Florence, Alabama. He exited the store without paying for merchandise that he shoplifted. WRIGHT was confronted by loss prevention associates and mall security officers. Once stopped, he resisted. The mall security officer (myself) sprayed him with OC pepper spray. While being restrained (bear hug hold) from behind by a loss prevention associate, Wright proceeded to pull a handgun from his waistband and fire a shot at the mall security officer (myself). By the grace of God, no one was injured. Wright walked to his truck and drove away from the scene of the crime. After a lengthy vehicle pursuit through at least 2 counties, law enforcement officers were able to stop his vehicle with a spike strip.

After he was under arrest, multiple firearms and ammo were located in his vehicle. He was charged with Robbery, Attempted Murder (of myself), DUI, among various traffic violations. In May 1998, he was convicted of Robbery and Reckless Endangerment (jury convicted of the lesser offense of attempted murder for shooting his firearm at me). Now, this convicted felon WHO IS A FORMER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER has petitioned our Great State of Alabama for a pardon of his crimes. If granted, this could give him access to LEGALLY OWN AND PURCHASE FIREARMS.

If you agree with me that this pardon should be DENIED, please do society a favor and sign this petition for me to present to the Board of Pardons and Parole in Montgomery on 11/03/2015. Thanks for your support.

7. Expungement of all nonviolent felonies in Pennsylvania

Petition Background (Preamble):

In a world of technology it is increasingly difficult to find a job with a felony. It is understood when a murder has been committed or perhaps an assault against another human being.

However, there are those felonies that are nonviolent and a person should not have to pay for life. America is the only country in the world that holds a felony against a person for life.

It is down right inhuman to make a person wait five years after a five or ten years sentence for a nonviolent crime in order to be pardoned. I believe the real reason has to do with paperwork and not human rights.

People with felonies need to provide for their families just like anyone else and as a United States citizen deserve more from their government after there life has changed.

Few senators and state representative have attempted to introduce bills SB 391 and SB908 in Pennsylvania to pass laws to provide relief to hundreds of thousands of these reformed offenders who are struggling to make ends meet because they are going through life long punishment of unemployment or underemployment of flipping burgers or removing trash where as they could be earning decent wages to support their families and be law abiding productive tax paying citizens of our society.

I have written to Pennsylvania Governor, Attorney General, Senators and State representatives to change the board of pardon procedures to allow exceptions for speedy processing of pardon applications for people who have nonviolent felony conviction records but who have reformed themselves for certain circumstances such as Employment, Education, Immigration, adoption, custody and section VIII housing, similar to Georgia board of pardon and parole procedures which allows exception to typical 2-5 years waiting period (proposed waiting period in Pennsylvania is 7 years) since the completion of sentence before one can apply for pardon and 9 months waiting period (The waiting period in Pennsylvania is 3 to 4 years) for processing of application before the board of pardon to grant a hearing for expungement.

We want to allow those of us who make a difference and have indeed changed our lives to expunge our felonies and get on with living. We have already paid for our crimes.

That is at least five years after you have served your time or completed whatever sentence was handed down.

In the meantime what do you do about employment? or supporting you family?

Could this be why there is so much recidivism?

8. Pardon Request for Charles Jason Lively

On March 15, 2005, Dr. Ebb Whitley died in his Iaeger, West Virginia home. The State indicted Charles Lively and Tommy Owens for murder and arson. The State alleged that Mr. Lively and Mr. Owens beat the victim, then set the house afire.

A medical expert testified that Dr. Whitley did not have any bruises or trauma, and smoke inhalation alone caused his death. The murder hinged on the purported arson. A jury convicted Mr. Lively. In a separate trial, Owens was acquitted of the charges brought against him in relation of Dr. Whitley's alleged murder. The prosecution contended that both men were guilty, or both were innocent.

At trial, Fire Marshall Robbie Bailey claimed the fire was incendiary. But insurer Casto's investigator, Mr. Griffith found no proof of arson and labeled it "undetermined." His company paid the victim. In post-trial phase Mr. Sid Bell, prosecutor retained fire expert Craig Beyler, Ph.D. Dr. Beyler's report found the source of the fire to be electrical. He added that Mr. Bailey had "gotten it wrong and that this fire cannot be incendiary." Without any physical injuries, and without arson Dr. Whitley's death had to be accidental.

In State v. Lively, West Virginia Supreme Court No 34856, Justice Ketchum wrote a scathing dissent. He began, "I dissent because the defendant (Lively) did not receive a fair trial." and, "The State only called two witnesses who had knowledge of defendant Jason Lively's alleged involvement in the murder, one of whom recanted his story on the stand, the other, a jailhouse "snitch" whose story was riddled with inconsistencies." He concluded writing, "A complete review of the trial transcript and my years of trial experience tell me that this defendant did not receive a fair trial. It isn't even close."[Emphasis supplied]

Mr. Lively's case shines a spotlight on the myriad errors than can send an innocent man to prison. Dr. Whitley died by accident. This travesty, this mockery of justice which sent an innocent man to prison needs a remedy. We ask you to grant Charles J. Lively an unconditional pardon so he can return to his family.

9. Free American Citizen Vincente M Tenerelli

Vincente Tenerelli a young college graduate, was the victim of an assault while a tourist in Egypt. He was wrongfully convicted of manslaughter while defending himself at his hotel.

The witnesses and investigator never saw the incident take place but provided false testimony to have him convicted. Vincente has been in jail for nearly two years for self defense.

10. Requesting a Pardon from President Barack Obama for Marissa Alexander

Marissa Alexander, a 31-year-old mother of a toddler and 11-year-old twins. She had claimed self-defense, tried to invoke Florida's "stand your ground" law and rejected plea deals that could have gotten her a much shorter sentence. A jury found her guilty as charged: aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Because she fired a gun while committing a felony, Florida's mandatory-minimum gun law dictated the 20-year sentence.

The state's "10-20-life" law was implemented in 1999 and credited with helping to lower the violent crime rate. Anyone who shows a gun in the commission of certain felonies gets an automatic 10 years in prison. Fire the gun, and it's an automatic 20 years. Shoot and wound someone, and it's 25 years to life.

Alexander's case unfair. "Stand your ground" law did not apply for her, and she felt her life was on the line.

11. Stop deportation of Sam Lloyd

Sam Lloyd is being deported for a crime he has already served time for. Sam has lived in the U.S. for 25 and knows no other life.

Sam legally entered the U.S. from England when he was 7 years old. Sam's crime was not a violent offense. Nor was it drug related. Sam has a daughter that was born in the U.S. His family is here. He has nothing left for him in England.

12. LEGALIZE/DECRIMINALIZE MARIJUANA/CANNABIS LAWS IN ALL 50 U.S. STATES/TERRITORIES

To all our elected officials:

It is unfortunate that the economy is in such a state. By legalizing/decriminalzing marijuana/cannabis it would create jobs, bring much needed revenue, free up law enforcement and jail cells that are needed for VIOLENT criminals, provide alternative, cheaper medical options and the list goes on.

It has also been brought to my attention that for more than twenty years, Dutch citizens over age eighteen have been permitted to buy and use cannabis (marijuana and hashish) in government-regulated coffee shops. This policy has not resulted in dramatically escalating marijuana use. For most age groups, rates of marijuana use in the Netherlands are similar to those in the United States. However, for young adolescents, rates of marijuana use are lower in the Netherlands than in the United States.

Benjamin Franklin, a very wise man, stated:
"For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged, by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right but found to be otherwise." and he said
"The strictest law sometimes becomes the severest injustice."

Lastly, "Those who govern, having much business on their hands, do not generally like to take the trouble of considering and carrying into execution new projects. The best public measures are therefore seldom adopted from previous wisdom, but forced by the occasion."

It is time for change.

13. Stop Pardons for Paedophiles

We feel that, in the case of child molesters, a pardon is not deserved. Its been shown in many studies that these people, can not be 'cured', only supress their desires. Statistics also show, that, 40% of convicted pedofiles, reoffend.

I know people who are in this situation and they are still living with the damage inflicted on them, by these degenerates. Why should they be allowed to be "pardoned" and pretend it never happened?

14. Pardon Francis Bacon

As main organizer of this petition, I would like to add a brief note. The approach to this petition has been long and tedious; over two years striving continuously to seek for a higher lever of accountability and consistency of websites to host this project.

This petition in the past was once approved to be hosted by 10 Downing Street; however, it only gained 14 signatures over the duration of two years, therefore, a global watch was needed this time, and I personally would like to thank the staff here for hosting this petition once again.

Your support is important, even if you had re-signed in the past, or are not so much involved in Francis Bacon. Please view, acknowledge, and sign this cause.

At the time of its submission, we shall submit it to the Organization that will assist in the cause to re-issue or consider a posthumous pardon to Francis Bacon.

If you have any questions as to why Bacon should be granted a pardon, or hold doubts as to which Organization this petition will be submitted to, you are very welcome to send your inquiries to me by sending me a message here.

Thank you.
Elaine M. Dutton

********************

Please help us restore Francis Bacon’s name and sign this online pardon. Francis Bacon should be recognized and pardoned by the current British government, which will be a just act, well behind schedule.

15. Fight injustice. Help bring Robert Spiers home.

I am a retired professor of history at Western Kentucky University and I am writing to enlist your help in reducing the sentence of a young man named Robert D. Spiers, Jr.

Between May 31, 2001 and November 2, 2001, Robert held up three banks (California, Colorado, and Kentucky), but as a result of a plea agreement he was charged with only two of the crimes. Because Robert brandished a gun (unloaded) in those holdups he fell under the Gun Control Act of 1968.

The intent of Congress in passing the Gun Control Act was to reduce an alarming federal crime rate in which guns were used and get career criminals off the street. It provided that for a first conviction the criminal would receive a mandatory sentence of “not less than 7 years” without parole. And then to deter further gun-related federal crimes by criminals who had served their 7 year sentence, Congress provided that “in the case of a second or subsequent conviction. . . the person shall be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 25 years” without any benefit of parole.

But what about those who, for example, committed two crimes before they were arrested and convicted? Would their sentence be 14 years or 32 years? For 19 years after the Gun Control Act was passed, federal judges held that the word “conviction” meant what it said and therefore they did not apply the enhanced provision of the law. A criminal who had committed two federal crimes in which a gun was used got 14 years. But that all changed in 1993 when the Supreme Court by a vote of 6-3 in Deal v. U. S. ruled that each of the two crimes committed by a man named Deal was equivalent to a conviction and his 32 year sentence was upheld. Robert, therefore, received the same sentence in 2003.

This is a terrible miscarriage of justice and flies in the face of what Congress intended in 1968. I spent many hours reading the debates on the Gun Control Act in the Congressional Record. These debates clearly show that the “second or subsequent conviction” phrase was aimed at recidivists, that is, career criminals.

Robert had no previous convictions for anything, so how could he be considered a repeat offender within the meaning of what Congress intended? What he should have received was a sentence of 14 years, 7 years for each crime. Justices John Paul Stevens and Sandra Day O’Connor strongly dissented in the Deal case. Stevens criticized the majority for being “driven by an elaborate exercise in sentence parsing” and “intricate grammatical analysis.” He went on to say that “punishing first offenders with 32 year sentences does not deter crime as much as it ruins lives.”

And that is exactly what the Deal decision is doing to Robert. Having already served 7 years in prison, he still faces 25 more years without benefit of parole. He will be 55 years hold when he is released.

Robert has exhausted every legal remedy open to him to get a reduced sentence. His appeals to the district, circuit, and U. S. Supreme courts were all summarily brushed aside. His only hope now is commutation and only President Bush can grant that.

My wife and I have been in constant contact with Robert over the last seven years and have visited him four or five times at the federal prison near Beckley, West Virginia. The officials at the prison respect him highly. They consider him a model prisoner who exerts a calming influence on his fellow inmates. And they have entrusted to him a number of responsibilities. Robert also continues to work on his undergraduate degree so that when he is released from prison he can make a positive contribution to society. In short, we believe Robert is completely rehabilitated.

Please don’t allow this intelligent young man to fall between the cracks of our prison system. He is not just another criminal to be discarded and forgotten; he is a beloved son, brother, cousin, uncle, grandson, nephew and friend. Those who know and love Robert will never stop the fight to bring him the justice he so rightly deserves.

Will you help us in our effort to secure a commutation for Robert? If so, please sign the petition below. This petition will be sent to the Pardon Attorney in Washington, D. C.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

16. PARDON Duane 'the Dog', Leland and Tim Chapman

In 2003, Duane,Leland and Tim Chapman, “Dog the Bounty Hunter on A&E,” was hot on the trail of Andrew Luster, heir of the Max Factor cosmetics fortune and convicted of 86 counts of rape. When Luster got wind of Dog’s chase, he fled to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to avoid capture.

Dog and his posse, however, did not give up the pursuit. On June 16th, 2003 Dog captured Luster and brought him to the U.S, where he was immediately jailed and later sentenced to 124 years in jail.

Fast forward three years to 6:30 am, September 14th, 2006 and Dog and his posse are in the custody of U.S. Marshall’s, facing extradition to Mexico and eight years in prison for capturing a dangerous American rapist.

17. Free Charles Pearcy IV

Feb 02, 2006

Free Charles Pearcy IV.

We are family members and friends who are deeply concerned about the incarceration of Charles Lewis Pearcy IV.

Our concerns involve more than our relationship with Charles. We also are taxpayers, and we are concerned about the ineffective use of public funds attributable to the incarceration of wrongfully convicted people.

We also believe the very act of incarcerating an innocent individual is morally and ethically wrong.

We, after having reviewed the available facts and information in the case of Charles Lewis Pearcy IV conclude that:

The known facts and evidence in this case prove his innocence beyond a reasonable doubt. (For information go to www.freeCLP.com)

There are wrongful convictions occurring in our courts at an alarming rate. We, as voting, taxpaying citizens of the United States of America expect our tax dollars to be well spent, and that criminals, not innocents will pay the price for wrongdoings.

We, as citizens, share the same concerns about crime that others do. But our collective observation is that the "system" is often a large part of the problem instead of being a viable element or its solution. Although the crime rate is currently dropping, the rate of incarceration in our country is rising.

Our "Tough on Crime" stance has not been a deterrent to the social problems that we have labeled crimes. Until some reason is restored concerning the number of wrongful convictions, and until we are willing to decriminalize social issues, accidents and psychological illnesses, the problems will remain unsolved.

We are seeking justice in this case, in demanding that the authorities of the State of West Virginia immediately take steps to ensure that a retrial be held or absolute pardon be granted.

18. Pardon for Randy "Duke" Cunningham

Petition for clemency and pardon of Randy "Duke" Cunningham.

19. Free James R. Hathcock

James R. Hathcock, born March 5, 1967 is a son, husband, father, family man, good provider, gainfully full time employed, and considered to be a hard working individual... that is, until being raped by a failed judicial system, wrongly convicted of incest and sentenced to spend six years in prison forcing him to become a victim for a crime that he did not, could not, would not, and is not capable of having committed.

He is accused of a crime that never happened. A crime that is physically and humanly impossible for him to have committed.

Rather than justice having been performed on behalf of the victim, Shana, a grave injustice has been done to James Hathcock, his wife, son, family, and his childhood dream career (which he had accomplished) all of which have been made to become victims by a failed judicial system.

After a jury trial lasting 5 days, three (3) of his witnesses were allowed to testify on his behalf, false testimony was given by some of the State witnesses, no DNA evidence, no physical evidence, witnesses and evidence on his behalf were withheld, one state witness has come forward.

In a letter written willingly on October 5, 2004, a state witness has admitted that she knows the victim was lying and that she (state witness) did not like getting up there (witness stand) and talking about s_ _ _ that did not happen.
