• 17 year-old Florida boy killed over pack of skittles - SPEAK UP!
    Trayvon Martin (17 years old) was walking home from the store in a gated Stanford, FL community with a pack of skittles and a drink when he was labeled as "suspicious" and shot and KILLED by an armed neighborhood watch guard. Despite the fact that Trayvon was completely unarmed, George Zimmerman (a white man) believed the young black teen to be dangerous and even AFTER being told by police to "stand down" he took it in his own hands and shot the young boy in cold blooded murder. We're calling on you, America, to stand up for justice and demand that Zimmerman be charged with his crimes! Please sign the petition and pass it on to all of your family and friends! Let's stand together and show that this is NOT acceptable in ANY community! http://news.yahoo.com/family-florida-boy-killed-neighborhood-watch-seeks-arrest-044537742.html

  • Rescue Kony's Army: Invisible Children Inc.
    Joseph Kony lives in Central Africa. What Joseph does is, he abducts African kids. He takes them and he keeps them. He makes the boys killers, usually they have to kill their families. When girls are abducted they are turned into sex slaves and are raped. There is no way out of his group: Lord’s Resistance Army, AKA the LRA. He has adbucted over 30,000 children and had made them child soldiers. he won’t stop what he is doing until he is caught, he found out that the US is now on a making to look for him making him harder to find. Right now, Kony is invisible because no one knows about him.. no one. Tell as many people about Kony as you can and make him visible and know. Donate money if you can. Make him visible. we need change, and we need difference. We need Kony to be famous so we can stop the harm of innocent children. By signing this petition, and sending it to our school board, our high school can become a "sponsor" and spread this news to other school that can spread this idea to other schools as well..making everyone be aware of what this man is doing to children. All we need is a BUNCH of signs so I can personally print them out and bring them to my school board of education, and then they will allow us to go on from there! Thank you to everyone that has signed.

  • Stop Child Perputrators From Pleaing Under Alford Plea
    When a person is charged with criminal acts against a child, and the State has the evidence to convict if it goes to trial. and the accused perputrator takes the plea bargain....that perputrator should not ever be allowed to plea under the Alford Plea, either they did it or the didn"t....no in betweens, when it involved a child. People in positions of trust even more so. When they plea under the Alford, it is like violating the child all over again. Be the first State to stop this violation against children.....Leave no child behind. My child, Kelly Rae Sowell got left behind........more than once by the system, by the Alford Plea...Kelly's Law.....NO Alford Plea when it involves a child.

  • Officer Lagier, Warm Springs Correctional Center
    Officer Sean Lagier is a Correctional Officer at Warm Springs Correctional Center in Carson City, NV. Officer Lagier was a victim of an attack by two inmates on January 31, 2012. The attack was provoked by Officer Lagier because of his intense harrassment of the inmates. Officer Lagier has a record for harrassing the inmates so severely that he was put on probation at one point and has had many grievances against him, yet they are considering bringing him back on duty at Warm Springs. This cannot happen, this man needs to be investigated and action needs to be brought against him, as well as Ms Cynthia Thomas and Warden Smith, who not only knew of the Officer's sadistic behavior, but encouraged it.

    I am making this petition for anyone that is behind the West Memphis Three. Back in 1993 the state of Arkansas railroad three innocent teens for the brutal murders of three little 8 year old boys. Although the guys have maintained the innocence from day one and been let out of prison via an Alford Plea, the real killer/killers are still to this day at large. Show your support and let the state of Arkansas know that you as an American will not stand for this kind of injustice. I for one find appalling that the sate of Arkansas or any state for that matter would ruin the lives of three innocent people rather than put the real killer/killers behind bars. So please if you agree sign with me ----Thank You
