Petitioning Mayor Jacob Frey


ON THE EVENING OF MAY 25TH, 2020, GEORGE FLOYD WAS SLOWLY AND MERCILESSLY KILLED BY 4 MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICERS WHILE BEING VIDEO TAPED BY CONCERNED CITIZENS BEGGING THEM TO STOP. FLOYD WAS SURROUNDED. HE WAS PLEADING WITH THEM, AS DEREK CHAUVIN’S KNEE PINNED DOWN HIS THROAT. FLOYD SAID, “I CAN’T BREATHE, I CAN’T BREATHE.” HE THEN BECAME UNRESPONSIVE, BUT WAS CONTINUALLY CHOKED UNTIL HIS NOSE BEGAN TO BLEED, AND HIS LIFELESS BODY WAS SHOVED ONTO A STRETCHER, AND INTO THE BACK OF AN AMBULANCE. This is an open to demand to Mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey, Hennepin County Attorney Michael O. Freeman, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehensions to ARREST, and INDICT the involved officer’s involved as follows: Derek Chauvin: 2nd Degree Murder Tou Thao, and the other two unidentified officers: Accessory to 2nd Degree Murder The enraged and sickened citizens of this state applaud the Minneapolis Police Department’s swift termination of these officers, but this is so far from enough to be consider justice. The police force are supposed to be people our communities trust to protect us, but as of now, they seem little more than the future murderers of our black brothers and sisters. True justice would have been George Floyd never being killed in the first place. The only compromise we are willing to accept is treating his killers as the senseless criminals they are.  We realize you are investigating this matter as we speak, but there is a reason this petition exists, even with that knowledge. We don’t trust you to bring this to justice without our explicit anger expressed to you in overwhelming numbers. We have seen this very injustice go unchecked over and over for years upon years. We believe that all of the evidence needed for indictment is in the video of the incident. No extenuating circumstances could detract from the relevance of that damning footage. We implore you. Show us we are wrong not to trust you. Hold these former officers accountable to the rule of law.

Justice for George Floyd

George Floyd was murdered on Monday, May 25th, by a police officer putting his knee on his neck for almost 9 minutes. After he said I can't breathe. After bystanders begged him to stop. After he went limp. After he checked his pulse. The knee stayed.  This is an extremely disturbing video but it is a constant reality for Black people existing in this country. If you have not seen the video, I would caution you with a trigger warning.  The officers involved have been fired and the FBI has been called for an independent investigation. We must do our part to ensure that George Floyd receives the justice he deserves.   Please sign this petition addressed to the FBI, The President, The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, Mayor Jacob Frey, & Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (formerly: DA Mike Freeman). An email on your behalf will be sent to all of the above. We ask for the quick arrest, and indictment of the officers involved. Derek Chauvin: 2nd Degree Murder update 5/29: Chauvin has been brought into custody & charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.  Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas K. Lane: Accessory to 2nd Degree Murder The lawyer representing Floyd’s family is civil rights attorney Ben Crump. His account is a great resource. Update: The Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison has taken over the prosections in George Floyd's case. Please call (651) 296-3353 or (800) 657-3787 and tell him to arrest and charge these former officers for the Murder of George Floyd. Please scroll down to posted updates for ways you can spread the word, numbers you can call, and updates on the investigation.  "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter" - MLK

Shut Down Pornhub and Hold Its Executives Accountable for Aiding Trafficking

(This petition has migrated to where over 2.2 million people have signed from 192 countries.) As featured in the NY Times' "Children of Pornhub" Sign and share the petition today to SHUT DOWN PORNHUB AND HOLD ITS EXECUTIVES ACCOUNTABLE for enabling, distributing, and profiting from the child abuse, rape, sex trafficking, and criminal image-based abuse of countless victims worldwide. You can stay up to date on the progress of the petition by following #Traffickinghub founder Laila Mickelwait on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Media inquiries can be directed to If you have been victimized on Pornhub or any MindGeek owned website and want help, click here. #Traffickinghub is a decentralized global movement of individuals, survivors, organizations, and advocates from across a broad spectrum of political, faith and non-faith, economic, and ideological backgrounds, all uniting together for the single purpose of shutting down Pornhub and holding its executives accountable for enabling, distributing and profiting from rape, child abuse, sex trafficking and criminal image-based sexual abuse. The movement was founded in February, 2020 by anti-trafficking activist Laila Mickelwait. Over 600 organizations, hundreds of survivors, and millions of individuals from 192 countries have joined forces through #Traffickinghub to call for criminal and civil accountability for Pornhub and its parent company MindGeek. In a relatively short amount of time, the #Traffickinghub movement has made enormous progress thanks to the work and participation of all involved. At the beginning of 2020, with 130 million daily visits, Pornhub was the largest and most popular porn website in the world, the 10th most visited website across the Internet (more than Netflix, Amazon, or Yahoo), and the third most influential tech company on society only surpassed by Facebook and Google. They were making hundreds of millions of dollars annually, primarily by selling 4.6 billion ad impressions daily on millions of videos live on the site at any given time. By the end of 2022, thousands of media articles had been written exposing Pornhub’s involvement in monetizing sexual crime, Pornhub had taken down 80% of the entire site, totaling 10 million videos, and MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and PayPal had all cut ties with the site. Grant Thornton, Comcast-Xfinity, Roku, Heinz-Unilever joined the credit card giants in shutting down their business relationships with Pornhub and all major mainstream advertisers pulled their ads. TikTok and YouTube removed Pornhub’s accounts and Meta/Instagram permanently shut down Pornhub’s 13 million follower account. 194 victims sued Pornhub/MindGeek in 8 major individual and class action lawsuits across the United States and Canada. Lawsuit damages could potentially reach billions of dollars. Laila Mickelwait continues to lead the #Traffickinghub movement today and is determined to keep the petition open and to keep fighting for justice until the goals of the movement are accomplished. ### ORIGINAL PETITION TEXT February, 2020 In recent news there have been numerous shocking cases of sex trafficking and child rape films that were hosted on Pornhub. A 15-year-old girl who had been missing for a year was finally found after her mother was tipped off that her daughter was being featured in videos on the site — 58 such videos of her rape and sexual abuse were discovered on Pornhub.  Her trafficker, who was seen in the videos raping the child, was identified using surveillance footage of him at a 7-Eleven where he was spotted with his victim. He is now facing a felony charge. Also in recent news was the case of 22 women who were deceived and coerced by Michael Pratt, owner of GirlsDoPorn, into performing sex acts on film that were subsequently uploaded to Pornhub. These women sued GirlsDoPorn and won a $12.7 million lawsuit against the company. According to a federal indictment, Pratt and his co-conspirators produced filmed child rape and sexual abuse content and trafficked a minor. Pratt reportedly fled the United States for New Zealand and is currently wanted on a federal warrant. But there are other individuals who should also be wanted by law enforcement — CEO Feras Antoon and COO David Tassillo of Mindgeek, the company that owns Pornhub. You see, Pornhub is complicit in the trafficking of these women and minors and probably thousands more like them. Pornhub is generating millions in advertising and membership revenue with 42 billion visits and 6 million videos uploaded per year. Yet it has no system in place to verify reliably the age or consent of those featured in the pornographic content it hosts and profits from. In fact, all that is needed to upload pornography onto Pornhub is an email address. No government-issued ID is required, not even to become “verified” with its trusty blue checkmark that makes everything seem a-OK. I know this, because I tried it. It took me under 10 minutes to create a user account and upload blank test content to the site, which went live instantly. I could have then gone on to become Pornhub-verified, and all I would need to do is send a photo of myself holding a paper with my username. That’s it. It is no surprise that Pornhub admitted to verifying the trafficked 15-year-old girl who was sexually abused in 58 videos on its site. The official Twitter account for Pornhub wrote in response to the breaking story that the 15-year-old girl had been a verified member. After quickly realizing it had just admitted to assisting in her being trafficked, the account deleted the tweets, but the evidence of the admission was cached and still exists. One of the most-searched terms on Pornhub is “teen” pornography, in fact it has been a top search term on the site for years. The search will result in videos that are constantly being added faster than any individual could watch them. Many feature girls who look 13 years old at best — girls with braces, pigtails, flat chests, no makeup, extremely young faces, holding teddy bears and licking lollipops, all while being aggressively penetrated. A quick search for the word “teen” turns up titles such as “Young Girl Tricked,” “Innocent Brace Faced Tiny Teen F---ed,” “Tiny Petite Thai Teen,” “Teen Little Girl First Time,” on and on ad infinitum. Pornhub has no reliable system in place to verify that those in the videos it hosts are not trafficked children being raped on film in order to line the pockets of its executives. What all of this means is that at this very moment, there could be hundreds, if not thousands, of videos of underage sex trafficking victims on Pornhub. We already have evidence, and it is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s time to shut down super-predator site Pornhub and hold the executives behind it accountable.

Demand Justice for Darren Rainey

The prior petition for Darren Rainey was closed due to insignificant coverage and attention. Help me resurface this case back up and demand justice for this man who was wrongly killed.  We demand justice for Darren Rainey, a nonviolent offender who was locked in a boiling hot shower for 2 hours by prison guards, leading to his excruciatingly painful death. The prison guards responsible for torturing and killing Darren Rainey must be held accountable. Taken from DailyKos article: His name was Darren Rainey and on June 23, 2012, he was boiled alive. In our country. In our name. And paid for, by us. His last known words were: “I can’t take it no more, I’m sorry. I won’t do it again.” According to reports, he screamed those words over and over and over again. And then he stopped screaming. After being removed from the shower, staff administered CPR, with one a nurse registering Rainey’s internal temperature at 102 degrees, well above the normal temperature of 98.6. The autopsy report states that 12 hours after his death, Rainey’s body still had a temperature of about 94 degrees. Darren Rainey was a 50 year old, non-violent offender serving a two year sentence for cocaine possession in Florida’s Dade Correctional Institution. He was housed in the psychiatric ward because he was schizophrenic. For reasons unknown, Rainey, a schizophrenic, had smeared feces on himself. When guards told him to clean it up, he refused. He was then hauled off and handcuffed in “the shower”. Scalding water poured over him for up to two hours. While he screamed in agony and for his life, officers reportedly taunted “how do you like your shower?”. When ‘clean up’ was called in, chunks of skin that had separated from his body were part of what remained. According to reporting, “The shower was just one tool the corrections officers used to torment prisoners in the ward, known as the transitional care unit.” Two full years after his death, no-one had been held responsible. According to a June 2014 Miami Herald report: A Herald investigation, first published in May, showed through public records and interviews by witnesses, including a nurse on duty at the time, that Rainey’s death was never properly investigated by the Department of Corrections or Miami-Dade police. Evidence also suggests that the Department of Corrections might have tried to cover up the incident. Update To The Original Diary (Published Last Year)According to the Miami Herald, four years after his death, the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s office has officially ruled what happened to Darren Rainey’s “accidental”. The Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s autopsy report, completed this week, concluded that Rainey died from complications of schizophrenia, heart disease and “confinement” in the shower back in June 2012, according to multiple law enforcement sources. Rainey, 50, did not suffer any burns anywhere on his body, and investigators could not conclude that the specially rigged shower was “excessively” hot the day he collapsed, the report said. Sources said the autopsy concluded that corrections officers had “no intent” to harm Rainey when they kept him in the shower for up to two hours.  Got that? A shower that was specifically rigged to scald human beings cannot be proven — years after the fact — to have contributed to Darren Rainey being boiled alive.  The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office must now decide whether to charge corrections officers with committing a crime, such as manslaughter, for locking Rainey in the shower and leaving him. A spokesman declined to comment. A federal criminal investigation is also continuing into Rainey’s death.

Justice For George Floyd!

George Floyd, an African American man, was murdered by a police officer named Derek Chauvin on camera and not enough has been done.  The murder happened on Monday, when the officers responded to a call from a grocery store that claimed Floyd had used a bad check. When they found him in his car, the police claimed he “physically resisted officers” while possibly under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unlikely, but sure, a completely reasonable excuse for killing a man, right? No. The officers got George on the ground and Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck as he lay on the ground. In the footage George Floyd, can be heard shouting “I cannot breathe” and “Don’t kill me!” He then grows still, eyes closed, face-first on the road.  No one deserves to die that way. Especially not for going to a grocery store and writing an allegedly forged check. These men are murderers and must be brought to justice. The Minneapolis Police Department initially claimed that George Floyd died of a "medical incident" unless there is a medical incident called 'being choked to death by a man, who is supposedly supposed to protect the American people, but instead goes around murdering them' then it was not, in fact, a "medical incident" The FBI has started to investigate the murder of George Floyd, but knowing the American justice system, they will need to be pressured before anything gets done.  Sign this petition to make sure they convict Derek Chauvin, the killer, and Tou Thao, whom was an accessory to the murder and an enabler, to a lifetime in prison. Help us get justice for George Floyd and his family!

Justice for Christopher

If You Guys Would Like To Send Emails Criminal Division-        Criminal Division Assist.-   Investigators-  My brother Christopher Terrell was gunned down by 2 caucasians claiming to be contractors on December 11,2015. His assailants were never charged due to their connections with Cincinnati Police Department. Christopher was walking to his grandmothers house after leaving a friends house when the killing took place. The Cincinnati Police Department attempted to say it was a robbery on Christopher’s part although there wasn’t a gun found on the scene. Multiple witnesses came forward and said Christopher didn’t have a gun but were turned away. Some of the witnesses who were minors at the time were threatened to not to say anything or they could be charged with his murder. Christopher was a young , loving , outgoing individual. He was way before his time some people may say. When he died his community also died with him. Christopher had his flaws just like any other teenager, he may not have presented himself in the best light but he didn’t deserve to die the way he did. You may not approve of the way he carried himself or what he chose to display to the world but his life was taken simply out of hate. Even if I don’t get justice I want the world to know what happened to him. He left behind 1 brother and 5 sisters, 1 in which he never got to meet. All Black Lives Matter not just the ones that are being publicized   Cincinnati Prosecutor’s Office (513) 352-5333  Lets also factor in after meeting with an officer regarding the case ,she stated it was definitely a murder but couldn't do anything about it. I’ve decided to keep the officer’s name hidden due to the fact that it would put her in harms way.
