FDA Accelerated Approval of Genervon's GM604 for Use In ALS

My name is Nick and I am 54-years old. In October 2011, I was diagnosed with ALS. Today, I am in a wheelchair and cannot walk or stand. My arms grow weaker almost every day and my breathing is starting to be affected. I used to be very active but now I can only leave my home when I have someone with me who's strong enough to lift me into my wheelchair once I'm done scooting down to the bottom of the stairs on my butt. It can feel like I'm a 100-year old man who can't do things for himself anymore. At 54, I should still be a vibrant part of my community, but this disease is kicking me where it hurts. Through the enthusiasm generated by the Ice Bucket Challenge, many people now know that ALS is a degenerative neurological disease that currently affects over 30,000 Americans, and as it stands the disease is always fatal. Most people with ALS are given only 2-5 years to live. When I was diagnosed, I was devastated - it took me months to accept it. Although I am now resolved, I have not lost hope. Currently, there is only one drug available to treat ALS (Riluzole) and it is only able to extend life expectancy by a couple months. That's why the recent news about a small company named Genervon Biopharmaceuticals and their trial drug "GM604" has been so exciting for the Global ALS Community. While most trials have a hard time even finding a positive trend, the GM604 trial data supports the view that this drug could very well be is a game changer in the battle against ALS. There are multiple, statistically significant data. Not only in clinical data and results alone, but also correlated biomarkers data and results as well. (Please see "Files" section on the campaign website: https://sites.google.com/site/aap4gm6/) Genervon met with the FDA in February 2015 and made a potentially life-changing request on behalf of the ALS community; they asked the FDA to promote GM604 to the Accelerated Approval Program with Post-Marketing Phase 4 Requirements, so all ALS patients can have legal access to GM604 now. Under the FDA's Accelerated Approval Program, the treatments would be covered by health insurance. Although Genervon knows that this request might complicate their relationship with the FDA, they were willing to take a stand and do everything they can to help the ALS community because it is the right thing to do. If the FDA does not grant Accelerated Approval, it will likely be 3 more years before patients are able to access this drug -- meaning that most people currently living with ALS will not live to see it reach market. While acknowledging the paramount importance of public safety in the FDA’s drug approval process, I believe that ALS presents a compelling case for an exception to the usual process. I am asking you to help me appeal to the FDA through their sense of compassion for those of us with this dreadful illness. People with ALS don't have time to wait for another clinical trial to be completed.  By signing this petition, you'll be helping patients like me request that the FDA expidite the way potentially life-saving treatments are made accessible to people with ALS -- starting right now with GM604. Doing so could very likely mean a change in the course of ALS progression not only for myself, but hundreds of thousands of other patients worldwide. After you sign, please follow this link to tweet and/or email the FDA: https://www.change.org/p/lisa-murkowski-fda-accelerated-approval-of-genervon-s-gm604-for-use-in-als/u/9475826 Thank you, Nick Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gm604forals Please go to the Genervon website for a true understanding of the facts and the science behind GM604: http://www.genervon.com/genervon/about_pressreleases.php

Tell the FDA to stop denying ALS patients treatment options

When I became a parent, I knew immediately that I would do anything to protect my daughters from the hardest parts of life. My mission would be to give them as much love and comfort as I possibly could. But now instead of me taking care of them, my daughters are often responsible for taking care of me, because in May of 2014 I was diagnosed with ALS. Now, instead of protecting them, my daughters are forced to watch as my body dies one muscle at a time. ALS is a devastating disease, that currently has no effective FDA approved treatments. However, there are promising therapies in the FDA approval pipeline that might improve my chances and quality of life, but the FDA isn’t willing to expedite the approval of these drugs, even though the average life expectancy of an ALS patient is 3-5 years and the average time it takes for a drug to become FDA approved is over a decade.   Please join me and Hope NOW for ALS in petitioning Congress and the FDA to apply Accelerated Approvals (AAP) to promising treatments targeting terminal diseases, and implement faster, smarter, and more humane clinical trials using today’s science. This is not a radical or new idea. In 1992, in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the FDA adopted the Accelerated Approval Program (AAP) – an expedited approval process to treat fatal diseases. This was a process to allow patients fast access to potentially life saving drugs, and has since been used for cancer and heart failure treatments. But the FDA refuses to apply it to ALS and other rapidly fatal diseases. How can it possibly be fair to exclude the most vulnerable and at risk people -- those with fast acting terminal diseases -- from this program? ALS is always fatal, and there are currently over 30,000 patients in the US with no options. We need help. We need options. My diagnosis is the greatest challenge my family has ever faced, and my daughters have amazed me with their grace and strength in taking on this battle with me. I know that even though my life has not turned out like I imagined it, I can still be the dad I always wanted to be, and I can still show my daughters what it means to take a stand for what counts. Please join me and Hope NOW for ALS to help save my life, and the lives of so many others around the country.

Save Net Neutrality

     Net neutrality preserves the right to communicate freely on the internet. Net neutrality requires internet service providers (ISPs) to give everyone equal access to everything you use on the internet-- email, watching videos, reading news articles, and listening to music. It prohibits ISPs from slowing down, speeding up, or blocking content on the internet. It is how the internet has always worked. Unfortunately, this is being threatened by the FCC- the Federal Communications Commission.     If the FCC ends net neutrality, then how we’ve used the internet changes completely. ISPs will be able to block content, slow down internet access, and favor websites over others. It will also end the Title II of the Communications Act, which charges ISPs for blocking content or slowing down internet and creating “fast lanes.” “Fast lanes” would allow certain internet service providers to give internet access faster than any other service providers. Ending net neutrality could have global impacts and change the way the world shares information and changes how information is processed.     As high school seniors about to enter into the real world, we cannot imagine what life would be like if we did not have net neutrality. Net neutrality allows us to use our freedom of speech on a platform that is like no other. I can go on the internet and research something without the fear that an ISP has favored a certain website that is completely biased one way or blocked certain websites.     If you believe we should have free access to the internet, sign this petition to show your support. This issue is time sensitive and must be addressed. Support free and open internet! Thank you for your support, Katie Lemon

Americans deserve time and equal opportunity to vote. Blue Point Brewing Company, along with other forward-thinking companies, has committed to giving our employees the day off to vote. But we need implement this change on a bigger scale. Join us in creating the change and protecting democracy. Convince Congress to establish Election Day as a Federal holiday.

Give the Vietnam Blue Water Navy Veterans their presumptive rights.

In 1977, the first claims of Agent Orange exposure came flooding into the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). But it took 14 years for Congress to actually listen, take action and give our Vietnam veterans the benefits they deserved. The Agent Orange Act of 1991 was implemented to provide much-needed care to veterans who were exposed to the harmful chemical cocktail Agent Orange. Many of us thought the fight to get the medical attention we deserved was over, but that wasn’t the case. In 2002, the VA amended its initial plan and excluded thousands of “Blue Water” Navy vets -- vets who served right off the coast -- from receiving  our rightful benefits. Because we hadn’t served on land, the VA tried to say we were unlikely to suffer the effects of Agent Orange poisoning. Even though we didn’t serve on Vietnamese soil, we were still exposed to Agent Orange. In fact, a 2011 study by the National Institute of Medicine found that Blue Water veterans could have been exposed in multiple ways, including via the ships’ water distillation system and through the air. The National Institute of Medicine also stated, “Given the available evidence, the committee recommends that members of the Blue Water Navy should not be excluded from the set of Vietnam-era veterans with presumed herbicide exposure.” We are asking for your help in urging Congress to pass legislation (House Bill H 299 and Senate Bill S 422)  that will reinstate our right as Vietnam Navy veterans to receive the benefits we deserve for being exposed to this terrible chemical. Nearly 90,000 Blue Water vets are depending on you. We are dealing with serious health issues that range from cancer to diabetes, and from Parkinson’s to heart disease. Many of these diseases have made it nearly impossible for some of us to get steady work. Last year, the VA finally extended benefits to Air Force crew members who flew in C-123s after they had been used in Vietnam to spray the toxic cocktail. The VA came to the realization that even the slightest exposure to this chemical had serious effects on a soldier's health. So why are the Navy vets’ pleas being ignored? We breathed the Agent Orange-polluted air that drifted from the coast and drank water sprinkled with the herbicide, and now our bodies are paying the cost. We ask you to stand with us, and with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. David Valadao, and demand that the VA assume responsibility for the effects of Agent Orange on Blue Water vets. Please sign our petition asking Congress to pass House Bill HR 299 and Senate Bill S 422 and give us our benefits.

Stop Forcing Mail Order Pharmacy as Only Choice of Coverage & Monitor Package Temperature

My son, received a life saving liver transplant at the age of 2. His life depends on the potency and effectiveness of chemotherapy/immune suppression medications to prevent his body's immune system from fighting off his transplanted liver. In the past mail order delivered his liquid oral medications in nothing but a plastic envelope on a 102 degree day on a hot enclosed not temperature controlled UPS truck. Shortly after, he went into liver rejection which could have resulted in complete liver failure or death. I speculated that the medication could have been too weak after the delivery of medications in high heat. I vowed to never again risk his life with mail order pharmacy. Recently, we were mandated/forced to only use mail order pharmacy in order to receive coverage for his life-saving medications. Hesitant, I begged for an ice pack. The package arrived in only a bag on an about 90 degree day again without an ice pack. The hot non-temperature controlled enclosed delivery truck can reach temperatures up to 170 degrees. His labs elevated again afterward. My son wants to know, "Why would they do that?" I contacted the manufacturer, who does all of the testings for my son drugs who stated that both of my son's medications should be discarded and considered less potent once stored above 86 degrees as higher temperatures and freezing could result in lower potency. I also found out that liquid medication is the most harmed by the mishandling of medications outside of the manufactures temperature storage guidelines.  I contacted the mail order pharmacy who refused to replace or take back the medication. They said the law & USP Pharmacopoeia allows them to ship up to 104 degrees, although the manufacturer states it is not proven safe at these temperatures. However, I have received communication from USP Pharmacopoeia who writes the guidelines for storage and they also said that the mail order pharmacy should follow the manufacturer's guidelines of 59-86 degrees for storage. I contacted the FDA, who states that the mail order pharmacy should be using the manufacturer's guidelines that have been proven safe.. However, since the mail order pharmacies are regulated loosely by the State Board of Pharmacy, not the FDA there was nothing that the FDA could do.  Since starting this petition, I connected with another petitioner for air conditioning of the back of UPS trucks as the trucks are not temperature controlled. Her husband went into renal failure, because the UPS trucks are hot and enclosed and temperatures reach up to 170 degrees. It's like walking into a low temp oven. When the temperatures of the outside are colder than your freezer, I'm not sure how cold the trucks are but I'm certain mailboxes and doorsteps can get in negative temperatures.  I made over 30 calls to the insurance company begging for them to please let us pick my son's medications up at the local pharmacy at which they are filled. My son's physician wrote a note/appeal as his transplant team has stated that they have tried to voice their concerns about this issue with their pediatric/child patients and no one is listening! The insurance company still denied the doctor's appeal for us to pick up my son's medications in the safest way. It was not until the Media became evolved that the insurance company budged.  I felt helpless and have united with many other pharmacists, physicians, patients, mothers and fathers, and caregivers who feel the same way. Helpless. Mail order of prescription drugs should be a choice not the only option of coverage. Mandatory mail order programs from all plan types (INCLUDING the plans that are regulated by ERISA) needs to cease until mail order pharmacies are forced to store and monitor medications during their deliveries at the temperatures tested and proven safe by the manufacturer. I would never put my son's medications in a hot non-temperature controlled environment, and shouldn't be forced to only use this option in order to get coverage for his life-saving medications. Mail order pharmacies may appear to save money, but when my son ended up in the hospital after taking medications that could have been compromised by having lower potency, the cost of the rejection was thousands of dollars. If his liver would have fully failed, the cost of his liver transplant for just 5 days (he was in the hospital for 5 weeks) was over $1,000,000. The lax regulation and oversight may save money on prescription drug plans but may come at an increased cost to the health plan itself. Also, keep in mind the endless waste of medications that automatically are sent regardless of whether or not patients need them. Also, people with chronic, complex conditions, should always have the option of face to face interaction with a pharmacist who knows their complex needs and medical history. The pharmacist and patient relationship is crucial to the successful outcome of the patient's overall health. Taking this away is harmful to patients and be more costly to our already stressed healthcare system. Since starting the petition, many have also stated that they experience life-threatening delays in receiving their prescriptions. Medications get lost, stolen, people are going days without medications that their life depends on. Only allowing mail-order pharmacy for coverage is unethical and irresponsible.  Another important fact. Mandatory mail order programs are discriminatory. It is estimated that 40% of our homeless are disabled. How is mandatory mail order fair and working for them as they may not have an address and not even know where they will be from day to day? It is crucial that All plans should include true fair coverage and reimbursements of our pharmacist.  Please help! We need legislation to protect all patients by ending the mandatory mail order pharmacy coverage in every type of plan offered in the nation.  We need your help to make mandatory mail order an option, not a mandate.    YOUR URGENT SUPPORT WILL SAVE LIVES! THANK YOU!!

Remove sub-Asian boxes on Census Form 2020! Stop racist anti-Asian anti-immigrant legacy!

Dear fellow Americans for justice, brothers and sisters against racism, The glaringly racist legacy of sub-Asian boxes on the Census form was started in 1870, after the Burlingame Treaty of 1868, which eventually led to the infamous, racist, and inhumane Chinese Exclusion Act spanning from 1882 to 1943, which among other terrible abominations, banned U.S. residents of Chinese descent from having children or getting married; their family members in Asia were forbidden from entry to U.S. and reuniting as families. The Census form has no "Asian/Asian American" category. In its place are a group of boxes signifying foreign nationalities in Asia as if Asian Americans were all “perpetual foreigners.” It intrusively identified and collected data on which U.S. residents were of Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese...descent. While the Chinese Exclusion Act ended in 1943, did these racist, humiliating, dehumanizing sub-Asian boxes get removed from the Census form? No, they were kept on the Census form by the U.S. government even until today, and if we don't fight back and boycott the Census form with sub-Asian boxes, it will stay on the 2020 Census form and beyond, prolonging a racist American legacy, a shame to all Americans. This legacy treats Americans of Asian descent as perpetual foreigners, and collects intrusive personal ancestral origin data used in many kinds of racial discrimination and persecution. In one example, the U.S. government used information from the Census Bureau to identify native born Americans of Japanese descent and sent them to Internment Camps during the World War II. There were also discriminatory laws against Americans of various Asian descent, such as Filipino. Such horrendous trampling of humanity will happen again unless you and I act now to boycott a 2020 Census form with sub-Asian boxes. We demand these sub-Asian boxes be removed and replaced with one description--"Asian/Asian American." Injustice to one human being is injustice to all human kind. If we don't stop this racist and anti-immigrant legacy, its “logic” and mentality will be repeated in current and future policy-making. Let's keep fighting against racism and improve the human condition step by step. Please join the good fight to make this historically significant change happen for now and forever, by signing this petition and sharing it on social media and by email, word of mouth. Power to the people! Fighting on, Americans against racism and anti-Asian anti-immigrant legacy

We Demand that the U. S. Senate not confirm Andrew Puzder as Secretary of Labor

Andrew Puzder is among Trump's more controversial Cabinet picks because he has publicly opposed the overtime rule and various other Department of Labor regulations, and because the fast-food industry, from which Puzder hails, is a top wage-theft enforcement target at the department. Puzder is CEO of CKE Restaurants, which includes Carl’s Jr. and Hardee's. It’s actually very hard to imagine a worse choice for Labor Secretary than Andy Puzder. The Labor Secretary’s job is to look out for American workers. Trump's Labor nominee has opposed increasing the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour and efforts to expand eligibility for overtime pay.   It would be kind of funny if it wasn’t so serious. During the election, Trump made a lot of promises to create good jobs. But he’s filling his cabinet with CEOs and right-wing billionaires who have spent their lives undermining working people’s rights to come together in unions, while fighting minimum wage increases, paid sick leave and family leave policies. The evidence clearly demonstrates that protecting the rights of the people who work at Puzder’s company or its franchisees doesn't seem to be his priority. Puzder has run a business model that has produced widespread labor abuses at the companies. According to data compiled by Bloomberg BNA, over the previous seven years, about 60 percent of all Labor Department investigations of Carl's Jr. Restaurants found violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. While working people at his fast food chains sometimes were making below minimum wage, Puzder was taking big compensation packages. In 2012, he made 291 times as much as workers at his restaurants. Now, he could be in charge of enforcing our nation’s labor laws—from ensuring workplace safety to investigating wage theft.  His companies had the fourth highest incidents of wage theft reported to the government.  ‘Wage theft is a rampant, everyday problem in the fast-food industry: Nearly nine out of 10 fast-food workers across the country report having money stolen from their paychecks by their boss,’ Kendall Fells, the Fight for $15 national organizing director, told Bloomberg BNA via e-mail. Bloomberg reported. “Fells referred to a 2014 poll commissioned by the campaign of more than 1,000 fast-food workers nationwide. The survey documented such common worker complaints as being forced to perform tasks before clocking in or after clocking out, having the cost of uniforms deducted from their paychecks, and not receiving breaks during long shifts.”  Puzder’s Carl’s Jr. restaurant chain also has a history of sexist television. He thinks it’s appropriate to peddle sex to kids if it sells the product. “We believe in putting hot models in our commercials, because ugly ones don’t sell burgers,” said the CEO in a 2011 press release, according to Fortune. “We target hungry guys, and we get young kids that want to be young hungry guys.” Let’s target Puzder’s nomination instead. Just Say No Puzder at Labor. This petition will be delivered to the full Senate and to the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee of the U.S. Senate

Help Veterans & Dogs - Urge Congress to Adopt National Veteran Service Dog Standards

Here's one problem we can solve. Right now there is a lot of confusion over service, therapy, and emotional support dogs. Current service dog laws are being abused because there isn't a national standard.  As a result, the validity of service dogs has been questioned. Veterans and their service dogs are being denied entry to public places, such as restaurants and airports. Many veterans report that their service dog allowed them to return to a normal life. Doesn't normal life include living without fear of confrontation? A variety of "service dog" bills have been presented in the House and Senate. We need one national standard.  American Humane, National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations (NAVSO) and a group of academic, business and government experts have created the first national standard for service dogs, but we need your help. Sign and share this petition today and let the House and Senate Committees for Veterans' Affairs know you support one common sense national standard for service dogs.  Supporting this petition will ensure veterans and their service dogs have the opportunity to become credentialed. Let's help veterans and their service dogs live a life without fear of confrontation.    #dogs4vets

Federal Pardon of Steven Avery & Brendan Dassey

The Nation Demands Federal Relief & Support To Pardon Steven Avery & Brendan Dassey Immediately ATTENTION: President Trump, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senator Johnny Issakson; Dear Sirs, Former President, Barack Obama (D), FAILED to pardon Avery & Dassey when a petition reached the White House following the release of Netflix’s Making a Murderer December 15, 2015. The pardons were ultimately denied by President Obama because active appeals were filed for both men incarcerated in Wisconsin at the state level & required that any post relief remedy was to be reviewed and met by the state. Wisconsin’s current State Attorney General Brad Schimel & Governor Scott Walker have both stood firmly behind its Department of Justice and the decisions made to uphold the convictions of those deemed responsible for the alleged ‘Intentional Homicide’ of Teresa Halbach on October 30, 2005. However, there is adequate reasoning to submit a new Introduction to Request Immediate Relief & Support From A Federal Pardon, that is warranted and based on ‘New Evidence’ not filed in the current 2017 appeals. The evidence strongly supports Criminal Offenses enacted on by Government Officials in the Wisconsin State Capitol. It should be dutifully noted, for the record, that a Federal Ivestigation into the former Wisconsin State Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager, (D) 2003-2007, will show sufficient evidence Steven Avery was framed by Lautenschlager, herself. HISTORY OF UNETHICAL GOVERNOR OFFICIAL NAMED HEREIN; In 1993, Lautenschlager was handpicked by Bill Clinton to be a US Attorney General for Wisconsin and was trained by the Clinton Administration. Lautenschlager would sequentially be elected to serve on a Task force with Janet Reno. This position was Federal and seated Lautenschlager to work with numerous Sheriffs throughout the state of Wisconsin from 1996-2001. While seated to this position, before being elected by the citizens to serve as Wisconsin’s State Attorney General from 2003-2007, Lautenschlager formed a personal relationship with a former Sheriff of Manitowoc County deemed partly responsible for sending Steven Avery to prison in 1985. Upon Avery’s exoneration on September 11, 2003, Lautenschlager abused her power of position to protect her personal friends working in Law Enforcement named in a $36,000,000 Civil Suit filed by Avery on October 12, 2004. 1) Lautenschlager released a Report that started protecting those involved in Avery’s 1985 Conviction on December 17, 2003. 2) December 22, 2003, Mark Gundrum created the Avery Task Force to start preventing wrongful convictions. Lautenschlager initially wanted no part of it, and purposely begin backlogging the State Crime Lab, so that others innocent like Steven Avery couldn’t get out of prison. 3) 2 months later, Lautenschlager received a DUI on February 22, 2004. To save face politically, she then joined The Avery Task Force. However, Lautenschlager objected to the Bills being written by the 20 member bipartisan group seated, made of Senators, Judges, Prosecutors, Attorneys, Sheriffs & State Crime Lab personnel. 4) On August 31, 2005, Lautenschlager took over The Avery Task Force, renaming it to the Criminal Justice Study Commission.  (Avery’s name was taken out of it because it was beneficial to Avery’s $36,000,000 civil suit.) 5) The Charter Statement of this Commission blatantly highlighted that Manitowoc County Officials were NOT to be blamed for Avery’s 1985 Conviction. (Lautenschlager had an ongoing feud with Governor Jim Doyle because Doyle was going to be signing off on the upcoming Assembly & Senate Bills in November 2005. The Bills reflected the issues in Avery’s Civil Suit, giving him immense favor of winning.) 6) The Commission was supposed to prevent future wrongful convictions by eliminating Tunnel Vision, Jailhouse Snitches, Contaminated DNA, Faltering Witness Statements & botched Juvenile Monitoring Recordings in Custodial Recordings.  7) During numerous Attorney General Seminars in September 2005, Lautenschlager published and distributed phamplets to Law Enforcement Officials stating how to prevent the issues listed in item 6), above. However, Lautenschlager demanded and allowed that Law Enforcement Officials were to use these issues against Steven Avery; whereas, November 3, 2005, a report was filed for a missing Teresa Halbach, with Law Enforcement Officials claiming Steven Avery was the last to see her on October 31, 2005; in which, all issues listed in item 6) above are manipulated in this case as follows: A) Manitowoc Officials named in the Civil Suit zeroed in on Avery immediately enacting “Tunnel Vision;  B) A jailhouse snitch reported Avery planned on making a torture chamber to rape women when he was released. The problem with this story, Avery never knew he was even getting out. DNA miraculously freed him 18 years into a 30+ year sentence. The jailhouse snitch’s testimony was fabricated to match the later rape statements coerced by Brendan Dassey. C. Numerous witnesses faltered in their stories, that were inconsistent with actions of Avery, Dassey, & Halbach transpiring on the date of October 31, 2005, and the days immediately following. D. Lautenschlager signed off on a bullet fragment contaminated by Sherry Culhane on 4/12/2006, to be admited in Avery’s trial.  D2) Weeks later, On 5/5/2006, Lautenschlager released a statement on the state’s Crime Lab and NIBIN Program protecting the lab for entering a .22 Caliber shell to the program. The .22 Caliber round was prohibited from being submitted if fired by a pistol or a rifle. Lautenschlager manipulated the article to say “Pistol Only” because the murder weapon used on Halbach was allegedly a .22 Marlin rifle in Avery’s possession. In fact, it wouldnt be until Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen released an article in February 2014, stating Wisconsin DOJ had just purchased a new NIBIN instrument that now accepted .22 Rifle and Pistol calibers, along with shotguns. Lautenschlager had lied in 2005, so the science on the ballistics of the bullets allegedly fired from a “rifle” would be allowed in Avery’s trial.  E) Lautenschlager released a Model Policy on Custodial Interrogations on 2/23/2006. The policy was to protect juvenile children with disabilities from being interrogated without an adult present. E2) However, 6 days later, 3/01/2006, Brendan Dassey would become the first Juvenile recorded in Wisconsin by a mandated state law. The law was actually written by a member of Lautenschlager’s Commission. Dassey was interrogated by DCI Special Agent Tom Fassbender. The confession has since been reviewed as Coerced by numerous Federal Judges To Date. Fassbender was appropriately trained on December 6, 9 & 12, 2005, on how to handle this new Custodial Law, yet he failed. It should be noted, Lautenschlager was basically Fassbender’s main Supervisor. E3) Dassey was coerced into saying Teresa Halbach was shot in Avery’s garage. The bullet fragment that was contaminated by Culhane when tested on 4/12/2006, was found 3/2/2006, in the early AM after beginning a search the night of Dassey’s confession on 3/01/2006. Another DCI Special Agent, had turned off the video camera, looked down, and discovered the bullet when the video camera was conviently no longer recording. The search of the garage had already ended. E4) Not only did Lautenschlager release a model policy on 2/23/2006 that stated NOT to interrogate a child with a disability without a parent present, (done by a recently trained Fassbender 3/01/2006), but when a bullet magically stems from the search of Avery’s garage off camera, immediately after Dassey’s coerced confession, Lautenschlager protected the .22 caliber prohibited from being entered into NIBIN, even after signing off on the contamination of it. 8) Whereas; in items A-E4, Lautenschlager has knowingly allowed both the State Crime Lab & Special Agents of the DCI to manipulate and fabricate testimony and forensic evidence to falsify convictions on both Steven Avery & Brendan Dassey.  9) Lautenschlager’s very Commission was to protect Avery and Dassey from the very things that arrested them, that were current issues of her Commission. Strongly supporting the evidence, that if these issues were relative to Lautenschlager’s knowledge and manipulation prior to Halbach’s death & become factors of Steven Avery’s Investigation, then it is apparent Lautenschlager advised the manipulation of the issues she already had a remedy for, yet failed to step in. 10) The Wisconsin New Governance Experiment passed by Wisconsin Legislation gave Lautenschlager the authority on a Jurisdiction by Jurisdiction basis to immediately protect both Avery and Dassey, because they were victims of the issues being tackled on The Criminal Justice Study Commission, she spearheaded. 11) During the pretrial phase of both Avery and Dassey, in 2006, Assistant Attorney General Thomas J. Fallon was sent in from Lautenschlager’s Office. Yet, no remedy is ever applied by the Attorney General’s Office to protect Dassey or Avery, even with Fallon knowing the actions of Lautenschlager to be criminal. Fallon has since gone on to dupe Wisconsin State Attorney Generals J.B. Van Hollen in a 2010-2011 Appeal, & Brad Schimel more recently in the 2016-2017 Appeal.  The petitioners herein, for the record, submit the findings to the appropriated Federal Department that Lautenschlager knowingly manipulated the forensic evidence and testimonies in this case. Lautenschlager’s motive to harm both Steven Avery & Brendan Dassey intentionally is means of a severe criminal intent, that should NOT go unpunished, nor left without review of and by a Federal Department outside of Wisconsin.  The petitioners herein, seek immediate investigation into Lautenschlager’s actions and demands that they be reviewed for immediate post conviction relief for Avery & Dassey. Lautenschlager has remained silent for 12 years, and will NOT speak out about the Halbach Case. However, she will continue to state for the record Manitowoc County did NOT wrongfully convict Steven Avery in 1985. The petitioners herein, ask for Immediate Federal Relief by Pardoning Avery & Dassey in the event Lautenschlager is found guilty to any degree of tampering with, falsifying, manipulating and/or approving any contaminated evidence or testimony admitted into either trial, to the slightest degree.
