  • Stop Kill at Will legislation in Iowa!
    Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who was killed while walking home in his hoodie, is dead because someone who felt threatened by him took his life. George Zimmerman, Trayvon's killer, still hasn't even been arrested for the shooting. Why? Because Florida is a Kill at Will state! Astonishingly, Florida law broadens the definition of justifiable homicide by granting people the right to use deadly force if they feel threatened. This extreme expansion of the right to kill, despite being fought by law enforcement officials, has occurred in 24 states. Nearly half of the United States allow killing just because a person "feels" threatened. Right now, the legislature in Iowa is considering following Florida's lead and becoming a Kill at Will state. If enough of their constituents speak out against Kill at Will, it can be stopped. Because of the negative attention the Trayvon Martin tragedy is bringing to these laws, elected officials and the media debating the legislation won't be able to ignore loud public pressure to keep Iowa from becoming a Kill at Will state. These Kill at Will laws make all of us, including children, less safe. They are a special danger to young people of color like Trayvon Martin, who may fall under "suspicion" from armed vigilantes simply by being young, Black, and wearing a hoodie. Please join me in protesting passage of any Kill at Will laws in the beautiful state of Iowa, where people are friendly and kind. Let's not allow ourselves to be ruled by hysteria.

  • Kill ANY Kill At Will Legislation
    This is about Trayvon Martin, a 17 year old gunned down in cold blood for the crime of being Black and wearing a hoodie. His MURDERER has not been arrested after more than 30 days since this unpardonable crime. The criminal who committed this heinous act hasn't even denied it. He disregarded the express order from the Police to stand down and stop following Trayvon. He ignored this order, and an innocent child is dead. There is NO excuse for this murder.

  • Reject Alaska H.B. 80 - "Stand Your Ground"
    Currently, Alaska law gives Alaskan's a broad right to self defense. The proposed law would add wording to the existing law that would allow a person to use deadly force "in any place where the person has a right to be." That could be a sidewalk, a highway, the woods or on private property as long as the person isn't trespassing. The Alaska Legislature is almost done for the year and is unlikely to act on H.B. 80 during this session (H.B. 80 is being reviewed by a Senate committee), but it is important to strongly express our concern that such wording is being considered.

  • Stop YouTube and Google cruelty to animals videos from being accepted and shown
    TV, news, and several types of media have been recently highlighting the seemingly growing, sickening trend of trend of images of people deliberately inflicting cruelty on animals. YouTube is not being efficient on screening the recorded crimes of defenseless animals being hurt, tortured and sometimes killed for amusement. YouTube and others in power have as of yet done nothing efficient to prevent this so it is necessary to withdraw these images, and put restrictions and penalties and immediately take measures to permanently put a stop to this sickening endorsement of animal cruelty.

  • Legalize The Growing, Farming, and Distribution of Marijuana
    Pennsylvania is in trouble. The criminalization of Marijauna use and sell has made common hustlers into hardened murderers. Why? Pennyslvania is leading the nation in crowded broken prisons and corrupted school districts. We are in debt and looking for ways to move our statehood forward into the future. Would you vote to legalize marijuana if you could vote on it?

  • The Karen Ferrell Murder
    Karen Ferrell was murdered in her home while babysitting her 7 year old grandchild and 1 year old cousin. Her body was found a week later draped in plastic and thrown under her basement steps. The police had been contacted to file a missing person's report for Ms. Ferrell, but on the day her body was found there was no record of the Missing Person's report. Karen leaves 3 children and two grandchildren to mourn her death. Her daughter was promised by Homicide Detectives that their mother's death would not be in vain and that they would not rest until the killer was brought to justice. It has been over a year and still nothing has been done to capture and prosecute the person who is responsible for Karen's murder. He still walks free believing that he got away with murder.

  • Moratorium on Ohio executions NOW
    Executions in Ohio must stop NOW. No one should be executed under a system of justice while that very system is being closely examined to assess its fairness and accuracy. Doubt continues to erode the system: - Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor has established a Joint Task Force to examine Ohio's system of capital punishment. The Joint Task Force should be allowed to operate without the undue pressure of ongoing executions. There are currently 13 inmates with execution dates. - There is a bill to repeal the death penalty in the Ohio House - Bill 160. - There is a bill to repeal the death penalty in the Ohio Senate - Bill 270. - In January 2012, Joe D'Ambrosio became the 6th person to be exonerated from Ohio's death row, further demonstrating Ohio is at risk for executing an innocent person.
