Release David Barnett on Parole
UPDATE: PLEASE JOIN OUR "FREE DAVID BARNETT" FACEBOOK GROUP WHICH HELPS US FIGHT FOR HIS FREEDOM! https://www.facebook.com/groups/loveandsolidaritydmb UPDATE: DAVID'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY "FORSAKEN ME: A SURVIVOR'S LIFE SENTENCE" IS NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087C65WNG/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=lauren+provost+david+barnett&qid=1587396984&sr=8-1 After decades of watching John, David Barnett's "father" and abuser, adopt boy after boy to molest, David was horrified that John was about to adopt another victim. Not yet out of adolescence, David had no one left to turn to. David had to make a choice: To sit on the sidelines and say nothing or to gather the courage to let his grandparents know. David, ever the protector, wanted to do the right thing. He had tried for years to protect his siblings from John but David was just a child himself. David had tried desperately for years to report the abuse to Missouri teachers, law enforcement and the Department of Family Services (D.F.S.) held multiple records of documented physical and sexual abuse for years. No one intervened. The abuse continued until the very day of February 4, 1996, the day David came to tell his grandparents that another young boy was about to be adopted by their son, a pedophile. Even then, David was determined to do the right thing. Petrified to confront his grandparents for help, but determined to do the right thing, he tried as best as he could to try to communicate to his grandparents. He could not bear the thought of another young boy being abused and what he knew what coming for this young boy at the hands of John; abuse that was well-documented with a consistent pattern typical of all abusers, well documented in research. In fact, we all know that childhood andadolescence is the most critical time in our development. It's when we learn about interpersonal relationships and how to effectively manage our emotions. Childhood and adolescent trauma can completely disrupt this experience, and as a result, people may not adequately learn how to manage their emotions or negotiate interpersonal relationships. David was never given a chance. David's case aligns perfectly with cases where full rehabilitation is a result; when a victim is removed from an ongoing horrifically abusive environment. As you will soon read, David, part of the Honors Dorm at Potosi Correctional Center, has participated in every therapeutic support and a myriad of classes, training and other activities where he has repeated demonstrated his consistently stellar behavior, remorse, incredible growth, empathy and substantial work to become the human being he is now able to be without constant, ongoing, horrific abuse. David has spent 24 years paying for abuse and is harder on himself than anyone else could ever be. Please, I beg you, give David a chance at a life free of abuse after the extensive work he's done that clearly shows he is more than ready. After years of pleas for help and negligence from multiple reporting agencies, David had a right to freedom.
The Resignation of YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki
Since 2014, YouTube has been declining in quality. One could assume Susan Wojcicki is to blame, and they are right. She has led YouTube into the worst state it has ever been in. It has now crossed the line. Susan is responsible for the Paul Brothers, as she and her team make sure the brothers have no consequences. Under her leadership, YouTube has been more corrupt. We constantly see demonetization on videos that are perfectly fine and don't break the Code Of Conduct, but we see sponsorships on graphic content such as Jake Paul's recent video, showing a person hanging from a tree. We saw that video on the trending list AFTER IT WAS REVIEWED by YouTube themselves! I, and millions of people think Susan Wojcicki should resign as CEO of YouTube, and I call on Google and Alphabet Inc. to make it happen.
Justice for Montana
In 2018, we lost someone near and dear to us in a horrific and tragic death. If you went to Belton, or even if you didn't- you knew Montana. She was a force of nature and she was taken from us all too quick. Montana was a beautiful soul and she should be MORE than what happened to her.. In the past two years, the state of Iowa has barely communicated to Montana's mom (Rae), with anything regarding answers to this case. It's been two years without any justice for Montana. With that being said, please keep this petition as silent as possible. Having online signatures, and also signatures in person is great- but this petition does not need to go on social media. All we need you to do, is sign this petition, sign the in-person petition if you'd rather, and be there for the family of Montana. It has almost been two years and she has been gone with no justice whatsoever, and we can't have something get in the way of what we all want for this family- answers and closure.
It doesn't matter if you knew Cadon or not, when someone hands you something and says it's one thing, but ends up being something completely different and results in your life ending , THATS MURDER!! This is something effecting our whole community. The last several months I've gone through tons and tons of obituaries online...The amount of kids who died from fentanyl poisoning (counterfeit pills) is terrifying. Why haven't we heard about any of these cases? Why haven't they been on the news? Why haven't they been in the paper? Why is everyone in our area COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS that we even have this problem?? The people distributing these counterfeit pills need to be held accountable... Law enforcement needs to get off their ass and hold them accountable.. I cannot express enough how important this is, it has nothing to do with being an addict, absolutely ANYONE can become a victim, and then to make matters worse, no charges are brought against anyone.. I have talked to tons and tons of LOCAL parents this has happened to, all with stories just like mine.. it's been going on for years and years, but none of us heard a word about it. This petition is to hold drug dealers accountable when someone dies by their hand. Help me pass it on!! JUSTICE FOR CADON
Advocate for laws to protect against fraud and theft by deception
Criminals prey on vulnerable people. Social Media has only increased the scope and opportunity. It happened to me..... Visit our Facebook page for events and more ways to get involved. Paul Berry III was a Republican Candidate and Conservative TV host. Little to my knowledge, he has continually preyed upon vulnerable people for several years. Yet, he has not faced any criminal charges for his thievery. Watch the Investigative Report here When I lost my son to suicide on Feb 16th, I wanted to help other working parents realize the importance of creating a healthy work/life balance. I posted a humble plea on my professional social media feed. While I flew to make arrangements, my post was shared over 25,000 times. Support poured in from all over the world. Berry was a huge supporter and ally. He boosted about his abilities to create successful political campaigns and the positive impact my son's legacy would leave for generation to come. He had a name for this grandiose plan-The Brendan Bill. The Brendan Bill would require colleges to provide Suicide Prevention and Awareness Training. The only thing he needed was a "small" investment to build the campaign. Berry received $20,000 for the creation of a full scale mental health campaign and Road Shoots. He name dropped highly publicized figures Bruce Rauner, Betsy DeVos and Tony Dungy, to name a few. No such actions were conducted. Victims of Theft by deception have very few options. Legal services are very expensive (contributions appreciated) and the local police departments cannot offer much assistance. My son would have been 20 years old on September 8th. I wanted to build a long lasting legacy in his honor. However, my money is gone and Paul Berry III roams freely to gather more victims. What can you do? You can start with this simple petition. Let your representatives know that these situations definitely qualify as theft. Voice your support for laws to help law enforcement prosecute for these sorts of crimes- theft by deception. Most Sincerely, Shawn Dingle

A Call For Ending Police Brutality and Judicial Bias in Missouri
We are at a precipice in time, where this state can explode in rage, or rally together for Real change. We citizens of Missouri are tired of this justice system as it stands. Many of us have lost family and friends to inhumane, unjust, biased, violent and corrupt police officers. Our predecessors in the civil rights movement, tried the non violent approach. Only to be hosed, beaten and imprisoned. I urge you to hear me when I say, This generation ISN'T GOING TO GET BEATEN WITHOUT A FIGHT. We are Not taking ANY FORM OF ABUSE sitting down. I'm writing this letter to inspire Real change. Not a forum to speak our minds, and be sent home with No recourse. Not a committee to list possible reasons Why. WE DEMAND POLICE REFORM. The State charges Citizens with first degree murder, for the Same offenses officers get paid leave for. The Bias and Lack of reprimand and consequence to overuse of force in this state is Horrendous and Disheartening. We teach our children that accountability and consequence are Imperative in life. Yet our supposed civil servants answer to NO-ONE.. THIS WILL STOP BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.. We're reaching out to let you know, you can change the volatile, yet inevitable response to the continual abuse from This state's police officers and the biased judicial system. You can change this outcome by implementing changes in the way police treat your citizens, justice and full disclosure in investigations of complaints of police abuse of authority. We demand police officers be held to the SAME LAWS AND RULINGS we citizens are held to. You ALONE have the power to make this happen. I urge you to START THIS PROCESS, SO WE DON'T HAVE TO REVOLT ANY LONGER.. We Love the great state of Missouri. And we demand it to be the BEST it can be. Thanks for your time.
MLS to Saint Louis
On April 4, 2016, fifty thousand of the 250,000 living in St. Louis decided the fate of our hoped-for MLS expansion team. They were not in favor of the measure that would have involved a $60 million loan from the city to the ownership group to pay for part of their planned stadium. All signs pointed to the loan being repaid many times over in the years to come, but the measure failed. Our only hope is that the state might reconsider its stance on helping make this stadium and team happen. St. Louis will never get another chance at any team if it can't get one now. Help make St. Louis shine among sports towns in the country once again.
