Stop the prosecution of ATO whistleblower Richard Boyle

Richard Boyle is a former ATO staff member who is currently facing 161 years in jail for blowing the whistle on the ATO for its use of heavy handed tactics and revenue targets as motivation in its collection of debts. Before going public with this information he disclosed his concerns under the Public Interest Disclosure Act to the ATO where they were investigated and dismissed. He subsequently went public with this information which resulted in a investigation by Four Corners for ABC titled "Mongrel bunch of bastards". The issues he raised have since been reviewed by Treasury and the Inspector General of Taxation and resulted in changes to laws yet he is now on trial, having been charged with 66 offenses, though his actions were clearly performed for the public good. We call on Attorney-General Christian Porter to intervene in this matter and end the prosecution of Richard Boyle. Prosecuting this individual will greatly discourage any other potential whistle-blowers from coming forward and further erode public faith in our institutions.

The Family Law System gave convicted sex offender access to my little girl– now she’s dead

My teenage daughter committed suicide after the Family Law System allowed her father, a convicted child sex offender, access to her when she was just a child. The Family Court System failed my little girl. And they failed me, a protective mother, who in my attempt to protect my children from contact with their abusive father, faced being dismissed as a ‘hysterical woman’ and a ‘vindictive wife’.   How can this happen? The legal system, designed to protect vulnerable children, is instead allowing them access to convicted sex offenders and exposing them to further assaults. The family law policy of wanting kids to have a “meaningful relationship with both parents” drove the decision making that would eventually lead to the death of my darling girl. I can’t describe the pain of losing her - it’s been 3 years since she died. She was just 17 and such a loving and caring daughter and friend. It makes me physically sick to imagine what she went through. In 2002, Abbey's father was charged with the sexual assault of her 8-year-old best friend and sent to jail for a pathetic two years. The abuse occurred at regular sleepovers.    I’m desperate to fight for children and parents who’ve been grossly let down by the dysfunction of the Family Court System. The Court restricts children from doctor and counselling visits during legal proceedings, discounts their word against a parent's, views reports of sexual assault as vindictive and favours the most financially stable parent. It’s shameful and dangerous. My darling daughter had her whole life ahead of her, but by adding your name to this petition, we can bring about change for other kids. I am supporting Bravehearts call for a Royal Commission into the Family Law System of Australia to examine their damaging failings in protecting our children. It follows a report by Bravehearts which  highlights the failings of the Family Law System. It’s called Abbey’s Project. This will be Abbey’s legacy.

Marise Payne, act now to ​#BringJamesRicketsonHome​ or my innocent father will die in jail

VICTORY! James Ricketson is now free, thanks in no small part to everyone who signed this petition. Dad wants to thank you all for your ongoing support, we couldn't have done it without you. Now, we hope that we can channel that incredible energy: we want to get impoverished Cambodian families out of the rubbish dumps they live in, and into homes. Visit Family by Family to learn how you can help.  My Australian adopted dad, James Ricketson has the kindest heart - yet he’s holed up in a Cambodian prison without even having committed a crime. Unless the Australian government responds quickly, my innocent dad could die in jail. I’m petrified - every day matters now as he gets sicker. I’m so worried for dad’s rapidly deteriorating health - He is almost 70  frail and squashed in a tiny cell with 140 others. It’s so cramped, they have to take it in turns to lie down. Body lice are eating him alive. Dad is an Australian documentary maker/journalist. His only crime is kindness and using his award winning documentaries to portray the truth. The Cambodian government is holding him indefinitely without charge for the ridiculous and untrue accusation of espionage / spying as an Australian citizen - which carries 15 years. All he did was fly a drone over an opposition party rally, which isn’t even illegal. There is a new Foreign Minister – Marise Payne – who hasn’t made up her mind on James’ case yet. Dad was making a documentary about Australia’s abused street kids when he adopted me and loved me as his own daughter. He saved my life. He was one of the first men in my life to show me kindness but now the Australian government has turned their back on him.

Ban Abusive Dog Trainer - Jeff Gellman - Australia

Ban Abusive Dog Trainer Jeff Gellman - Australia We call on Peter Dutton, Minister for Home Affairs, asking he consider cancelling Mr Gellman's working VISA.  We ask the Government to investigate why Australia is allowing dog trainer - Jeff Gellman - access to a Visa to Australia to be able to train dogs and their owners using abusive tools, cruelty and purposely cause fear and pain to the dogs he is training. In Australia, we recognise that animals are sentient beings as written in the animal welfare act 1999.An Act—(a) to reform the law relating to the welfare of animals and the prevention of their ill-treatment; and, in particular,—       (i) to recognise that animals are sentient:       (ii) to require owners of animals, and persons in charge of animals, to attend properly to the welfare of those animals: Therefore, we ask that you prevent Jeff Gellmans abuse of dogs and stop him being able to enter Australia to train using physical harm by hitting dogs on the head, using electronic shock collars - which he openly promotes and is asking participants to purchase for the seminar - as well as using other forms of cruelty to abuse dogs in the name of training. Jeff Gellman, owner of Solid K9 Training has been engaging in and teaching dog training techniques that are scientifically unproven and harmful to dogs - oftentimes using tools that are banned in many countries, including some parts of Australia such as electric shock collars and prong collars. He promotes "techniques" that includes hitting (Bonking) and kicking dogs as punishment. In a recent video, Jeff can be seen hitting a dog in the head, causing it to yelp. A clip can be found HERE: This is where we draw the line between what training is - and what abuse is. We, the people of Australia, call on Attorney-General and Minister for Industrial Relations, The Hon Christian Porter, to investigate Solid K9 Training and these abusive practices including hitting, choking, shocking dogs. Our dog owners and dogs deserve better. They deserve humane and scientifically backed training approaches. We encourage the general public to think carefully about the welfare of their dog before attending this mans seminars. We encourage dog owners to seek help using modern science based rehabilitation via a qualified VET behaviourist rather than attend this abusive training.Animal welfare laws in Queensland:Animal welfare in Queensland is regulated and enforced to ensure animals are treated humanely.The Queensland Government's animal welfare program has 4 main aims:(i) promote the responsible care and use of animals(ii) provide standards for animal care and use that (iii) balance the welfare of animals and the interests of people whose livelihood depends on animals(iv) allow for the advancements in scientific knowledge and allow for changes in community expectations about practices involving animals We need to protect animals from unjustifiable, unnecessary or unreasonable painand ensure that the use of animals for scientific purposes is accountable, open and responsible.The Animal Care and Protection Act 2001 sets regulations for animal welfare standards. These regulations are the basis for the Animal Care and Protection Regulation 2012.This guide covers laws that protect animals in Queensland and how these are enforced. Video: Solid K9 "trainer" Jeff Gellman, admits to & endorses animal abuse for 19 minutes This is a clear breach of the QLD animal welfare code - to protect animals from unjustifiable, unnecessary or unreasonable pain. His training methods are outdated, archaic and painfully abusive.If anyone signing wishes to write independently, please see the links below. Thank you.

Prevent domestic violence tragedies. Make coercive control illegal.

In light of the recent murder of Hannah Clarke and her three beautiful children by their father, we say enough is enough. It's time that the government makes a meaningful and immediate change by outlawing controlling behaviours that lead to violent tragedies. That's why I'm calling to make coercive control illegal. Coercive control is described as a wide range of controlling behaviours that one person commits against another person (usually a current or former intimate partner). These behaviours collectively strip the other person of their autonomy and sense of self-worth. This typically involves some or all of the following: physical violence, intimidation, degradation, isolation and regulation. Some coercive control behaviours are already illegal, but not enough are. Coercive control can take many forms, all of them doing harm and laying the foundation for further violence. For example, some offenders have: - threatened to expose private photographs of their partner or ex-partner-prevented their partner from ending the relationship by threatening to, or actually engaging in, self-harm- confiscated or destroyed their partner’s mobile phone-deleted all male contacts on their partner’s social media-threatened to or actually harmed their partner’s pets-demanded that their partner eat certain foods-demanded that their partner sleep on the floor-prohibited their partner from seeking or continuing employment-controlled their partner’s finances, with one giving his partner an allowance out of her own income-conducted regular inspections of their partner’s home or body for evidence of infidelity. For all the work that has been done to end family violence in recent years, it is surprising to note that most of the above behaviours – with the exception of actual or threatened physical violence and stalking – are not criminal. The only way these violent behaviours are at all illegal are when an individual has been issued an intervention or protection order - but what message does it send to victims if the abuse they suffer is only criminal if it violates a court order? We have seen the horrific reaction some violent partners have to an AVO. We need to get in early, and prevent things escalating to tragedy by making coercive control illegal. Coercive control is already illegal in the UK. Why not in Australia? How many more lives are to be taken for any change to occur? Please sign and share this petition to make a stand against all forms of violent behaviour. We need to do all we can to end family violence.

Australian Government, stop Aiding and Abetting a wanted fugitive.

Welcome to my Petition for Justice More than 39,500 Australians who are supporting me have signed this Petition for the Australian Government to act. I am an Australian child and seeking Justice for two attempts on my life.  In 2008 my father attempted to separate from my mother due too her extreme jealousy. My father packed his things and was trying to leave, and my mother was threatening him with a sharp knife and blocking him when he tried to come down the stairs with his bags. My father used the bags to block the knife, and then my mother picked me up (I was around 18 months old) and ran outside with me. She then ran down the street screaming while she was running with me "I am going to kill her, I am going to kill her, I will throw her from the bridge". My father and my nanny chased after her and to rescue me and caught up to her about 200 meters from our house where there was a bridge. Just as my mother was throwing me, my father snatched me from her. She has admitted in writing in public she was going to commit suicide, but it was me the one stopping her from doing it. Yes that is true, as my father stopped her killing me, and she wanted to kill me before committing suicide. My father immediately took my mother to the hospital as he believed she had a mental condition, but the doctors said there was nothing wrong with her. My father took her to another doctor, who prescribed Stress Tabs because of her constant extreme jealousy. She was never diagnosed with Post Natal Depression which she uses as an excuse in public. I have her doctors report and prescription from the doctor, Stress.  There were many other incidents after this, chasing my father with knives and threatening to jump from a 5th story window in a Hotel. While my father was away at work in 2009, my mother had an affair with a minor child who was related to her, and the result was she had Criminal Charges filed against her in 2010. These Charges she did not disclose on an Australian Visa Application -  Visa Fraud.  In August 2011, my mother tried to kill me again, and again over jealousy. My fathers dirty shirt in the washing basket apparently had a fragrant smell. She placed me on her lap while she was sitting on the bed, and stuck two big chopping knives into my stomach and said she was going to kill me. My nanny called the Police who had to negotiate with my mother and convince her to let me go. I was nearly 5 years old and remember this clearly, and it traumatized me, and I have had flashbacks and nightmares' every night since. Many of the events she has admitted under oath in courts in Queensland, like the Police attended and she was using knives and cut herself.  My father believed she had a mental condition, even though doctors in the Philippines said there was nothing wrong with her, only stress because of her extreme jealousy. My father believed he could get her medical help in Australia, but his belief was proven wrong in 2015 when she was assessed by Mental Health in Queensland, and they said there was nothing wrong with her and she had no mental condition, only bad behavior, like most that kill or attempt to kill.  She a Filipino who is taking refuge in Australia on a Visa to hide from her crimes. She fled to Australia in November 2011 to avoid prosecution after having sex with her minor relative, and being Charged in Dumaguete City Philippines on the 2nd day of August 2010. I have been physically abused for as long as I remember, and the Authorities have failed me. On the 18th February 2015, my mother went into a violent rage in our home in Caroval Drive in Mackay, Queensland. She was smashing things in the house and throwing things in front of myself and my sisters, which made us all very scared. She destroyed and office chair she threw across the room, ripping a big hole in the new carpet where it hit, smashed the large stand mirror which shattered all over the floor in front of us and smashed the vacuum cleaner pipe. The Queensland Police were called as she would not stop, and she admitted all what she had done to the Police, which is contained in the Police Domestic Violence Order Application. POLICE APPLICATION DV Why was the Application not filled out correctly? Why are we not on the Application? The DULUTH MODEL!!!! I was there, I witnessed it, and it affected all of us, and put us all in fear, which is actually STALKING, yet nothing done. No protection. This was Stalking under Queensland Law, yet no Charges were made by the Queensland Police, because she is a Female. The Police applied for a Domestic Violence Order only, and did not even put our names on it to be protected, even though she just went psycho destroying the house in front of us and putting us in extreme fear again. STALKING. She then tried to take Revenge (her words) and get a Domestic Violence Order on my father, and went about this by Stalking him and keeping him under Surveillance, while she was the Respondent to a Domestic Violence Order.  She copied private communications between my father and my step-sister, and used a private message obtained by Stalking and Breaching the Domestic Violence Order issued against her, to say she was “in fear” to get the Police to issue and Order against my father. It even states in the Police Application that she was keeping my father under Surveillance and reading Private Correspondents. This is how it works in Australia, the victims will be made the perpetrators, so the woman is the victim, and they are allowed to breach Domestic Violence Orders with no repercussions. On the 23rd July 2015, Child Community Service Queensland came to our house and interviewed me. I told them about getting hit in the head most days by my mother and about the two Attempts on my life in the Philippines, and they took no action to protect me. My father obtained Sole Custody through the Family Law Court, with my mother only to have supervised contact. My father also had my sisters and I added to the Domestic Violence Order to be protected from my mother. FAMILY COURT SOLE CUSTODY QUEENSLAND DV ORDER On the 7th of August 2015, my mother detained me in a car at the Beaconsfield State Primary School, in Breach of the Family Law Court Sole Custody and Supervised Contact Only Order, and in Breach of the Domestic Violence Order I was named on. The Police were called and I was trying to escape from her, but she was holding me in the car. My father who was outside the car, showed the Queensland Police both Court, State and Federal Orders, and the Police told him he had to leave or they would arrest him. The Police were an Accessory to Child Stealing – period There were numerous other Breaches of her Domestic Violence Order, most video recorded, and the Queensland Police took no action, as she was Female. My parents reconciled briefly, and then when my father said he did not want to continue the relationship, my mother threatened him that she was going to kill herself and said she was going to jump from the car while my father was driving at 80km/ph, and she opened the door. My father dropped her at the Police Station at Sydney Street Mackay, where she ran in screaming “I want to die”.  Nothing was done by the Police about yet another Breach of the Order. She then continued her psychological abuse on my father, and he was diagnosed with moderate to severe depression, and he attempted to take his life a week later. So what did the Queensland Police do? They Charged him because he is a male, yet when she did the exact same thing a week earlier, nothing. After my mother found out that my father was contacting witnesses and gathering the evidence to have her Charged for my Attempted Murders that happened in 2008 and 2011, my mother wanted to reconcile.  Her nice attitude lasted from October 2015 until about March 2016, when she commenced hitting me in the head again most days. She then started to do the same to my younger sister Sinead (4) in early 2016. A series of events occurred around the same time in August 2016. Besides the daily screaming and abuse every morning from my mother, my father caught her withdrawing the rent money and sending it to an unknown male, allegedly used to pay for the user’s name and password to a Facebook game of a player that had advanced in the game, so she could use his Profile. My father also caught her communicating with a male and the messages were sexually related and inappropriate. She had also sung a love song and recorded it and sent it to this male. At the same time, I also witnessed her hit Sinead in the head one morning very hard, and I got ready to hit my mother to defend Sinead. After my father had caught her cheating, we had just been for dinner at the Southport Yacht Club, and arrived home. My father was sitting on the lounge in shock, not saying anything, and she was screaming at my father (angry she had been caught, and best defense, offense). There was an unexpected knock at the door and my father answered, to find two Police officers, who said they had been called for a Domestic Disturbance. My father said he did not call them, so it must have been my mother, and one officer went into the bedroom where my mother was to talk with her. The other talked with my father, and he told them the truth, that he was sitting on the lounge in silence, and she was screaming at him. We (Sinead and I) could hear my mother telling lies to the Police, and saying that my father had hit her. My father said the Police did not believe him, and were going to arrest him, so he told them to talk with Sinead and I as we witnessed it all. The Police came into our bedroom, and told them exactly what happened, that dad was sitting on the lounge silently, and my mother was standing up, and yelling in his face. The Police then went back outside to the lounge, and said there does not seem to be any Domestic Violence Occurrence here, and left. Really, is this how you protect people? The next day my father talked in secret to me and said he could no longer stay with our mother, as it is to much now, and she is reversing everything and using the Police against my father with manufactured statements. We both decided to leave her and devised a plan that he would pick us up from School early on Tuesday, and he would pack our things while she was out of the house, to stop confrontation. When my father has tried to leave her in the past, she has chased him with knives, and also tried to murder me and throw me from a bridge in the Philippines. We left her on the 16th August 2016, and stayed with a friend for a few days, as my father had to finish jobs he had started at the Complex where we stayed, as he did the maintenance. We went with my father in the car to the underground car park at the Complex where he was fixing the Security Gate. My mother walked past the entrance and saw us, and she told us, “go with your father”. “I will talk to you Kisha when you have menstruation” (I was 9) and she said to Sinead, “I will call you on your birthday” (4 months’ time). We left to Mackay where we were from and then decided to go back to the Philippines to file the Charges against my mother. These are not allegations after separation like she tries to make out, these crimes were documented at the time, and since talked about between my mother and father in emails. The second attempt on my life when my mother tried to kill me with knives, there are eight witnesses. Charges after separation, yes, serious charges like these will end any relationship, and my father and I already decided there was no going back, and it was time to get justice. We left for the Philippines on the 26th August 2016, after checking with the Australian Federal Police if it was ok. On the 30th August my grandfather (my mothers father) was apprehended in the Philippines on an outstanding Warrant for Rape of a lesbian in 2007, and my mother blamed my father for the apprehension of her father. My mother sent Death Threats to my father on the 30th August “You better start praying, your time is counted”. My mother was Charged on the 8th day of September 2016 in Dipolog City Philippines for the first count of my Attempted Murder, for trying to throw me from a bridge when I was an infant because my father wanted to leave her. Some of her relatives talked my father into going back to Australia to talk with my mother, and on the 16th of September 2016, he returned to Australia. Facts there were no charges against my father, and no crimes committed when her returned, and my mother had been Charged for my Attempted Murder. My father by accident saw her in the Surfers Paradise Mall on the 17th September but was afraid to talk with her, as he knows her attitude, and had the relatives on the phone telling him to. She got on a Tram and so did my father and after 10 minutes the Tram stopped and my mother got off, so my father did and attempted to talk. She was silent for, then started yelling, “You are going to kill me”, what she had been told to say. My father asked can they go somewhere more public, and sit and have a drink and talk, and she called the Police, and they Charged my father with Stalking her. Really Queensland Police, what about all the times she Stalked us? Pathetic Sexually Biased Criminals. What happened between when we left her until the 17th September to make her so scared? Nothing, oh except the Death Threat Text Messages by her the Queensland Police have, again in Breach of the Order on her. Of course, they let her off. I can’t wait to turn 18 and charge all these people. DEATH THREATS The second Warrant for the second count of my Attempted Murder was issued in January 2017, and shortly after an INTERPOL Red Notice. SOME WITNESS TESTIMONIES WARRANTS I am sick of my mother continually Posting lies on Facebook, saying my father ran away from his crimes and went to the Philippines. How can that be, when there were no crimes? Saying he is too scared to return to Australia because of his crime of Stalking. Important dates; She sent Death Threats on the 30th August 2016, She was Charged with Attempted Murder on the 8th September 2016 from when she tried to throw me from the Quezon Bridge on the 28th September 2008, then out of Revenge, she Charged him with Stalking on the 17th September 2016 for an occurrence the same day, 17th September 2016 when he tried to talk with her, so it is her that is hiding from her crimes, not the other way around!! Do explain you psychopath. Look at the dates, face what you have done to me and stop Posting lies on Facebook. The Department of Justice here started Extradition Proceedings in May 2018, and since then it has been blocked by the Australian Attorney General’s office, because she is a woman. I now find out though documents that the Australian Attorney Generals Office has been inciting and Conspiring with the Philippine Attorney General, requesting the Philippine Attorney General to break the law, and secretly approach the Judge in my Attempted Murder Case, which the Australian Authorities are not a Party too. These are serious offences in the Philippines, and all involved will pay the price, I swear. OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTCE Quote from Australian Immigration Minister, David Coleman 2019; "Wherever the offence occurred, whatever the sentence, Australia will have no tolerance for domestic violence perpetrators." Since the second attempt on my life I have suffered traumatic nightmares every night and I need Justice. These nightmares ceased when I returned to the Philippines as I thought I was finally going to get Justice. The nightmares have returned, and my sleepwalking, waking up in different places crying as somebody is chasing me with knives. Cancelling her Visa will force her to face her crimes in the Philippines, but Australian Immigration have not acted and are ignoring an INTERPOL International Red Notice and the Australian Migration Act, and are Aiding and Abetting. Besides the many Witnesses to the crimes that Australian Immigration have been sent through Diplomatic channels their Affidavits, Australian Immigration have her written admission that she Posted in Public last year on the Internet that she tried to kill me.  I was abused on a near daily basis while living in Queensland, getting hit in the head, having my ears twisted until I was in a lot of pain, and had my things thrown around and damaged. Of course, the Torture I experienced was ignored by the Queensland Police, not to upset the Narrative on Domestic Violence.  I filed an Official Complaint with the Queensland Police, and they did not even contact the witnesses as they are Aiding the Perpetrator as they know she is on a Visa. All MONIQUE COLEMAN of Surfers Paradise Queensland Police did was ask the Perpetrator was it true, and of course she said no - case closed. Domestic Violence against a child not even investigated, and waiting for Commissioner Katarina Carroll to explain.  This is smelling rather fishy and seems she is being illegally protected. A favor for a friend perhaps?  Queensland Police have her admission in an Affidavit she has been committing several serious crimes in Queensland. Minister Peter Dutton used his discretionary powers under the Australian Migration Act Section 501, to deport New Zealand teenager Caleb Maraku for hitting another teenager on the Gold Coast, yet an adult can hit a young child in the head and torture her in Australia, commit many other crimes in Australia, be wanted abroad for Attempted Murder of a child, have an INTERPOL Red Notice in force against her for Attempted Murder of a child, and be a Perpetrator of Domestic Violence in Australia under the Migration Act, and you take no action! Protecting someone to evade the law without a lawful excuse is Aiding and Abetting and Obstructing Justice, and makes the person an Accessory after the Fact to my Attempted Murder. You have no lawful excuse as you have her public written admission, she tried to kill me You have the INTERPOL Red Notice that is in force You have a Domestic Violence Protection Order issued in Queensland that I am named on to be protected You have a Domestic Violence Protection Order issued in Philippines that is in-force until I am 18 You not only have evidence; you have her admission in an Affidavit Sworn under Oath and filed in Court in Brisbane that she is Harassing and Stalking me while hiding in Australia from her crimes in the Philippines You have her admission in an Affidavit Sworn under Oath and filed in Court in Brisbane that she committed the crime of Child Stealing in Queensland You have her admission in an Affidavit Sworn under Oath and filed in Court in Brisbane that she has been committing Domestic Violence in the Philippines You have an Affidavit sent to DFA Sydney that contains statements that are manufactured by her, and you have evidence they are manufactured, which is a crime in N.S.W. In addition, you have evidence her Visa Application was Fraudulent as she did not declare her crimes in the Philippines as required on the Application which is a serious Commonwealth Offense. In 2014 the Minister for Immigration was given Super Powers to personally Cancel Visa's under Character Grounds, and I request you use your powers and be compassionate with me like the Au Pairs so I can have Justice. Being discriminatory or having selective Justice, is no Justice at all. You need to have the same rules for all, not just against Kiwi's and bikies. I am waiting for you to show your compassion before I surrender and cut a little deeper. The perpetrator submitted a Report from a Sydney Psychologist to Australian Immigration in July 2018 to evade Visa Cancellation, which was no more than an obstruction of justice and against Immigration Regulation as an alleged Expert Witness. We were not Served of even made aware of the Report that was based on Hearsay, lies and factual errors which I have documentary evidence to prove. Under the Regulations, the Report is inadmissible as it was not Served on me to respond. In January this year, 2021, my final witness gave Testimony about the Attempt on my life in 2011. When my mother found out she Harassed, Intimidated and Threatened my Witness in writing, from the same Facebook account she has been using to Harass, Intimidate and Threaten us, the same Facebook account she admitted was hers under oath in the Brisbane Magistrates Court, the same URL, so the evidence is undeniable. So what have the Australian Authorities done? Absolutely nothing, she has been and is being permitted to Harass, Intimidate and Threaten the victim and witnesses of Attempted Murder by Australian Authorities, while on a Visa in Australia. Name of Accused was withheld on this Petition until she went onto this Petition and admitted it was her, and harassed us and committed further Domestic Violence and crimes! Stop protecting a criminal because she is Female and ignoring a Child Victim

Life imprisonment of a Repeat child sex offender.

It has been brought to many people’s attention from a viral Facebook post that a man by the name of Logan M. Cutcher, 21, of Piqua, has been charged  with first-degree felony rape in connection with an incident on or around March 25. Cutcher was arraigned on the felony rape charge on Monday in Miami County Municipal Court, where he entered a not guilty plea and his bond was set at $500,000. According to the Piqua Police Department, Cutcher is accused of forcibly raping an 11-year-old female victim at a residence in Piqua. The victim knew Cutcher through a friend. Cutcher had also previously been charged with obstructing official business prior to getting charged with rape, and he was arraigned on the obstruction charge on March 31. The victim was previously reported as running away or missing on March 24, and on March 26, she was located at Cutcher’s residence. Cutcher had reportedly lied to police about the victim being at his residence during this time, so he was charged with obstructing official business. In 2018, Cutcher was found guilty of two separate charges of first-degree misdemeanor unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, one in connection with an incident in November 2017 and one in connection with an incident in May 2018. Cutcher was fined $250 and $100, respectively, for each charge. According to court records, Cutcher has not paid those fines. Also according to court records, Cutcher was labeled a Tier I Sex Offender in 2018 following the second charge of unlawful sexual conduct, but he is currently not on the state’s sex offender registry. ⚠️⚠️⚠️ I just want to add that the viral Facebook post I came across was the reason I created this petition. On this post there were many individuals blaming this 11 year old victim for the rape, and trauma she had to experience because of this sick,  and evil man. I don’t want to get into the extent of what was said, but this girl is suffering from trauma on top of trauma.  Eleven year old children can not consent to having sex, especially with a 21 year old man. I hope that this can bring her some justice, and peace knowing he will never walk free again. She deserves to be able to start healing, and this is a good first step.

Help Stop Suicides - Legalise Cannabis Now

Give my veteran son access to legal and affordable cannabis, before I lose him to PTSD. In the war in Afghanistan, 41 Australian soldiers were killed fighting. But at least 419 Australian soldiers have committed suicide after coming home to Australia. My army veteran son, David, was nearly one of those statistics. Thankfully, we discovered a way to bring him back from the brink of his PTSD: homegrown cannabis with naturopathic supplements. But cannabis for this purpose is almost impossible to source legally, or affordably. That’s why we’re both calling for this safe, natural drug to be made legal. I’m a retired drug cop, probably the last person you’d expect to be fighting for cannabis legalisation. But I’ve seen how this natural drug has helped pull my son out of the darkest places. David did two tours in Afghanistan. Like so many veterans, when David came home he was broken by what he’d experienced. To deal with his crippling PTSD, he was put on hardcore pharmaceutical drugs. These treatments 'chemically lobotomise' our veterans and are known to increase the risk of depression and suicide, and they prevent talk therapy from working for our veterans. I saw this happen with David. Faced with the prospect of losing David forever, we turned to cannabis. The results were incredible. One day he woke and up and it was like something had flicked a switch. It took me 42 years to realise this, but cannabis is a medicine. Medicinal cannabis can help our veterans, but it is obscenely expensive at over $800 for only ten days treatment. The government simply will not pay for it despite repeated requests to the Department of Veterans Affairs. We’ve had to turn to the black market, just to keep my son alive. We need a bigger solution to this problem, because it isn’t just veterans who experience PTSD and could be helped with natural cannabis. Ordinary, homegrown cannabis is inexpensive and could be saving lives right now. In fact, homegrown safe cannabis is often more effective than the pharmaceutical version for treating PTSD, and my son is living proof of that. Prohibition of cannabis drives the illicit drug trade and allows organised crime to flourish.  Also, research shows that the leading cause of drug deaths are opioids. The second leading cause are the “benzos”. It’s these drugs which are currently being given to our returned soldiers. It’s leading our veterans to develop debilitating addictions to these prescribed drugs, exacerbating depression and contributing to the suicide rate. Not a single death has ever been attributed to overdose of cannabis. Meanwhile, in over 33 US states, their veterans have unfettered access to medicinal cannabis, and it is treated as an essential service amid cov19. It's time our medical profession looked toward safe alternatives like cannabis. It’s time Prime Minister Scott Morrison acted to urgently stop this risk of suicide by our veterans. Let’s show Scott Morrison he can reduce the soldier suicides now, simply by legalising homegrown cannabis for use as a life-saving medicine. Our soldiers and others with PTSD deserve our help. Please, sign and share this petition and help this dad do all he can to support and care for his son.

Stop the deportation of Australian mothers and their children into abusive situations

“I’m Kate*, an Australian woman who was held against her will in Europe, by my abusive partner while I was pregnant. Because of the violence and stress I was under, there were medical complications in my pregnancy and I was forced to give birth to my daughter in Europe. I am fighting against a dangerous, abusive man who employed coercive control tactics to harass me. He physically assaulted me, made sexual jokes about my daughter, used her to punish me and keep me submissive. Somehow I managed to escape him to protect myself and my daughter. If I were forced to return to where he is, I don’t think I’ll make it out alive.” Despite this abuse, international law is forcing Kate and her baby girl to return to the country of their abuser. Australian politicians have the power to protect the hundreds of Australian women and children in similar situations through legislative change. Please sign the petition.  Under The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, a child is considered “abducted” if they are removed by one parent without the other parent’s consent. Studies completed in 2018 show that most parents fighting return orders imposed by the Hague Convention are mothers fleeing domestic violence.  There are many Australian mothers who have returned home, in search of safety, family and social support. They need to heal from their traumas in a safe space surrounded with loved ones. To be forced to return to their abusers is not just cruel, but a death sentence for many. Every year, over 170 Australian women and their children are ordered by Australian courts to return to foreign countries, where there is a known perpetrator. Usually these women are met by the abuser at the airport where the children are taken. Many women are abused, intentionally injured or killed within weeks of their return. Statistics show that over 70% of the time the courts are knowingly sending children into abusive situations. The Australian courts do not consider domestic violence a valid reason to stay home. Australia’s laws must be amended to protect vulnerable mothers and kids. The courts cannot continue to place women’s lives and children’s safety in jeopardy. At a time when Australians are being told not to leave the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Australian judges are ordering vulnerable Australian children and their Australian mothers to return to the abusive environments they fled, where they have little or no support networks. Please sign the petition to call on Australian politicians to urgently pass a law that overrules The Hague Convention and allows Australian mothers and their children to stay in the safety of Australia if abuse is shown, and recognises that it would be intolerable and unreasonably dangerous to send children and their mothers into lockdown during the pandemic.
