To open and maintain more public ATV/Dirtbike Trails in MA

As of right now I am up to $750 in fines for simply riding an ATV on public town land.  The areas in which I and other ATV/Dirtbike enthusiasts use are created by ATVs and Dirtbikes to go in and around areas like landfills and powerlines.  These are not beautiful places to hike or walk your dog but they suit us just fine.   The problem is our State's strict laws on offroad vehicle use. Basically, if you own an ATV in MA the only place you are able to ride is Pittsfield MA, which is practically in another state form where I live. Because of this I and many others head to their local spots. Some are old quarries, sandpits and powerlines.  However these are all illegal and I can attest to that. Like I stated before I am up to $750 in fines for simply wanting to have fun and not bother anyone. The state is not doing its part in providing enough safe space for outdoor recreational use for all of its residents. In my town alone there are over 70 acres of protected land that are permissible to be used by foot, bicycle or horseback. Some of this army land looks like it was used for nuclear experiments (no growth in forest and all sand). Yet still these sandy areas, perfect for riding ATVs and dirt bikes, is still illegal. As riders and residents of Massachusetts we need to propose the State to do something about this. Riding ATV's and dirtbikes should not be considered a crime! There is a need to have more legal places to ride! In order to do this people need to register their machines. If everyone in the state registered their machines the state might be persuaded to take action.  Massachusetts should also look to change the rules of legal dirt bike only areas to allow both ATVs and dirtbikes; for example Freetown State Forest and the Wrentham Trails. This would at least give ATV riders some other options without traveling 3 hours. Regardless we need to start a conversation with the State!

Changing The Legal Status of "Pets" From Personal Property To "Companion Animals"

I have never been a huge fan of petitions but I feel like this 1 needs to really take a stand and fight for what we believe in. I fully stand behind Bill H.2290 presented by 4th Bristol District Representative Steven S. Howitt. This petition will go to every political figure in the state of Massachusetts. From the Governor on down!!! Let our voices be heard!!! Everything on this bill is what animals lovers need!!! From holding animal abusers responsible to protecting the animal rescue organizations. Running a local rescue like I do, a Do Not Adopt List would also be so crucial to making sure these animals are going towards the best forever home possible.  Mr. Howitt of Seekonk (by request), a petition (accompanied by bill, House, No. 2290) of Elizabeth Cabraldipippo relative to the penalties for a guardian abusing a domesticated companion animal. The Judiciary. The effort to establish a legally meaningful distinction between pets and living room sofas has recently gained momentum. Draft legislation was just introduced in Massachusetts to change the legal status of dogs and cats from property to companion animals. Presenter:Steven S. Howitt (By Request)                                                Status:Referred to Joint Committee on the Judiciary Bill H.2290For the purposes of this bill a “companion animal” shall be considered a dog, cat or any domesticated animal.

Caregivers of “companion animals” shall be considered “guardians”. Guardians of “companion animals” have a duty to protect the health and safety of the animal. A companion animal may not be left outside during extreme weather including extreme heat, cold, wind, rain, or hail or any weather condition which poses an adverse risk to the health and safety of the “companion animal”.  Guardians and/or any person who abuses a “companion animal” shall have the animal seized by animal control and shall be punished by:  First offense - imprisonment in the house of correction for a period of 6 months, but not longer than 2 ½ years and a $2,500 fine, “companion animal” abusers may not be permitted to obtain another animal.  Second offense – imprisonment in the house of correction for a period of 1 year but not longer than 2 ½ years and a $5,000 fine and shall be put on a “do not adopt to” list.

Stop harassing Manoj and address institutional racism in the Somerville Police Department

This petition is in support of the letter (goo.gl/ffSsD3) addressed to Somerville city Mayor Curtatone demanding to hold Somerville Police Department (SPD) accountable for harassing Manoj, a local resident of color, over the past few months. The tactics used to harass him, intimidating him at his home, and targeting him in the community are typical policing tactics used by police departments across the nation to criminalize people of color and Black Americans. Because there is currently no transparent systematic institutional way to hold police officers accountable we, the public, demand it.   The Somerville Police have, on three different occasions, harassed Manoj and falsely accused him of stealing bikes. On each occasion, Manoj had denied any wrongdoing and sought to prove that his bike wasn’t stolen. Nonetheless, the police have continued to use allegations he is stealing bikes as a pretense to keep harassing him. In one incident of extensive harassment in June 2017, seven SPD officers came to Manoj’s home and harassed him, his partner, and their friends over the course of 2-3 hours. They preemptively detained him on false accusations of a stolen bike, made racist and misogynistic remarks, including an attempt to sexually solicit friends who had come to support. The police officers also searched their property without a warrant. While hovering over his partner, the lead detective, Ariel Collazzo claimed that she was “making him feel unsafe.” Detective Collazzo, has a known history of assaulting a Black man, calling him a N***** and fracturing his jaw. On August 18, 2017 Manoj’s bike was confiscated by a different officer for not carrying proof of purchase. In addition to filing a formal and publicly available complaint against the officers, including Detective Collazzo and Sgt. Salvatore Fusco, we demand the following:  1) That the Somerville Police immediately stop harassing Manoj and return the bicycle confiscated on 18 August, 2017; 2) That the Somerville Police close the prolonged investigation concerning Manoj and make the police incident report from June 22, 2017 available; 3) The City of Somerville conduct an investigation into the police process on June 22, 2017 with a focus on racial targeting and intimidation and take disciplinary action against police officer involved who acted inappropriately. In addition, to address the root causes of these incidents we further demand that mechanisms and processes for democratic community control of Somerville law enforcement be established in order to ensure that communities most harmed by “destructive policing have the power to hire and fire officers, determine disciplinary action, control budgets and policies, and subpoena relevant agency information.” (https://policy.m4bl.org/community-control/

#SAVEH2B: GET THE FACTS & STOP THE LIES!

Stop The Lies and Get The Facts!   The H-2B Program Creates American Jobs • The H-2B program is essential for small and seasonal businesses that are committed to hiring a legal workforce but areunable to fill seasonal jobs with American workers despite extensive recruitment efforts. Seasonal industries that use theH-2B program include seafood processing, horse training, hospitality and amusement parks, forestry, landscaping,circuses, carnivals, food concessionaires, swimming pool maintenance, construction and stone quarries. • The H-2B program is important to workers. For H-2B workers, the program provides well-paying seasonal jobs that allowthem to provide for their families and still maintain their homes in their native countries. This program is also importantfor American workers whose year round positions are reliant upon seasonal laborers during peak seasons.• Every H-2B worker is estimated to create and sustain 4.64 American jobs.   The H-2B Visa nonimmigrant program allows employers to hire foreign workers to come to the United States and perform temporary nonagricultural services or labor on a one-time, seasonal, peakload or intermittent basis. H-2B workers are not considered immigrants. In order to qualify for an H-2B Visa, an employer must prove that there are not sufficient U.S. Workers who are capable of performing temporary services or labor.     MYTH: H-2B WORKERS TAKE JOBS AWAY FROM AMERICANS.FACT: American workers are guaranteed first chance at every job later filled by an H-2B temporary laborer. By law, every open position must be properly advertised in the community and requires employers to hire any able and willing American workers to fill open positions. The fact is that H-2B temporary workers actually support American jobs and the U.S. economy. The H-2B program provides an opportunity for seasonal businesses to operate at a greater capacity, thereby retaining their full-time American workers and contributing more to their local economies. Additionally, temporary foreign seasonal workers help support many upstream and downstream jobs. According to the American Enterprise Institute study on Immigration and American Jobs, every H-2B worker creates or sustains 4.64 American jobs on average. MYTH: EMPLOYERS DON’T EVEN TRY TO HIRE AMERICAN WORKERS TO FILL THESE TEMPORARY HARD LABOR JOBS.FACT: Employers work extremely hard to hire American workers because 1) it is dramatically cheaper to do so, and 2) the law requires that employers demonstrate that every effort has been made to hire Americans before they can start the process of trying to hire a temporary foreign laborer. Again, the fact is that the vast majority of American workers are not interested in temporary seasonal manual labor jobs. Geography is a big obstacle for many employers; for example, many resort communities don’t have a sufficient local labor pool. And, in many cases, these types of seasonal jobs may not be appropriate for high school students due to the hours or labor laws that prohibit the use of heavy machinery by minors. MYTH: PAYING HIGHER WAGES WILL ENTICE AMERICAN WORKERS AND SOLVE THE SEASONAL TEMPORARY LABOR SHORTAGE.FACT: Hourly pay for these types of jobs have gone up significantly over the last few years because employers who use the H-2B program are required to pay their H-2B workers and similarly employed American workers a premiumwage dictated by the U.S. Department of Labor. These temporary manual labor jobs often pay considerably more than the minimum wage, but American workers still won’t take the positions. Sadly, in many cases, employers who obey the law and use the H-2B program are often competing against businesses that choose to illegally hire undocumented immigrants and pay those workers considerably less. If wages were raised even higher, seasonal employers who use the program would not be able to sustain their businesses or their American workers. MYTH: THE H-2B PROGRAM REPRESSES WAGES FOR AMERICAN WORKERS BY PROVIDING A CHEAPER LABOR SOURCE.FACT: Hiring H-2B workers is a much move expensive and risky option. In addition to the fact employers are required to pay H-2B workers and similarly employed American workers a premium wage that is often well above the federal minimum wage, complying with the H-2B program is extremely costly, complicated and wrought with uncertainty due to an overly restrictive cap and a constantly changing regulatory environment. Employers turn to the H-2B program as a last resort, after extensive efforts to recruit American workers. MYTH: H-2B WORKERS OVERSTAY THEIR VISAS AND EXACERBATE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IN AMERICA.FACT: According the U.S. Department of Homeland Security visa overstay in the H-2B program are rare. Workers who do overstay their visas are barred from using the program ever again. The fact is that the vast majority of H-2B workers and their employers are meticulous about compliance. Not following the strict program rules means the end of a well-paying seasonal jobs that allows these workers to provide for their families and still maintain their homes in their native countries – a risk these workers are not willing to take since they generally return to the same employer year after year. Additionally, when approving H-2B visas, the U.S. Consulate confirms workers’ ties to their home countries. Further, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires employers to promptly report any H-2B workers who do not report for work or who complete their work earlier in the season than anticipated. MYTH: THE H-2B RETURNING WORKER EXEMPTION IS UNNECESSARY.FACT: The H-2B program’s annual 66,000 cap (33,000 for each half of the fiscal year) is not adequate to meet the demands of a growing economy. The cap for the first half of the fiscal 2016 was reached on March 15. The second-half cap was reached on May 12, leaving many seasonal employers shut out of the program with no access to legal seasonal laborers. Without the returning worker exemption passed by Congress with bipartisan support and signed into law by the President of December 18, 2015, many companies would have had to close their businesses, lay off American workers or turn away customers.This provision is essential to the survival of small and seasonal businesses across the country and should be made permanent. An H-2B returning worker exemption is a narrow solution to a seasonal workforce shortage that focuses on workers who are valuable to their seasonal employers and who have never violate the terms of their past visas or other U.S. laws. These workers do not pose a security risk and they are not taking away jobs from Americans. The H-2B returning worker exemption in the omnibus appropriations bills simply provides that if an H-2B worker has been counted against the cap in one of the three prior years, that worker can return to work in the H-2B program in the current year without being counted against this year's cap.

Remove Judge Thomas Estes, Make Rapist David Becker a Registered Sex Offender

David Becker, 18, has been charged with two counts of rape and one charge of indecent assault and battery which came from his attack of two women on April 2nd.  Hon. Thomas H. Estes, First Justice of Palmer District Court, sentenced Becker to 2 years probation on August 15th and he is not required to register as a sex offender because he believes Becker should enjoy "a college experience." Becker's attorney Thomas Rooke maintains, "We all made mistakes when we were 17, 18, 19 years old, and we should be branded for life with a felony offense and branded a sex offender." This "mistake" included sexually assaulting two unconscious women at a house party and then texting "sorry" the next day to one of the victims.  Our justice system is obligated to hold criminals accountable, and when they don't it is our jobs as citizens to hold our justice system accountable. By removing Judge Thomas H. Estes, we are making a progressive step to end rape culture. Sexual assault should not be part of a college experience, it should not go unnoticed, and two years probation and a text sorry is not justice.

Hazing has caused murders every year since 1973 and rapes since 1995

I am a survivor of Hazing and Bullying and I have made it my life's mission to end these archaic and juvenile rituals. Hazing is illegal already but anti-hazing laws are rarely enforced and schools are currently not required to document and/or report these crimes.  This bill will require all Public and Secondary Schools in Massachusetts to document and report these crimes. There are many benefits to passing this and the most important benefit is that it will protect your children where they are extremely vulnerable. Once this legislation is passed the school's focus will go from trying to cover up or delegitimize the situation to placing the focus on the victim and the victims needs. It will help deter events like this from happening because schools will do more to educate and promote positive behavior in all school environments. This bill will also help in the event that someone is bullied or hazed. Once we start receiving the data from the schools we can use these analytics to determine what is working and where we need to improve to keep our children safe at all times while in school and after school activities.  Below is the language for our Bill: An Act relative to hazing in schools SECTION 1. Subsection (a) of section 37O of chapter 71 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2014 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after the word “cyber-bullying”, in line 19, the following words: - and hazing as defined in section 17 of chapter 269. SECTION 2. Section 18 of chapter 269 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2014 Official Edition, is hereby amended by adding the following paragraph: -Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, hazing incidents that involve students enrolled in a public elementary or secondary school district shall be reported according to the procedures and requirements prescribed in section 37O of chapter 71.  SECTION 3. Notwithstanding any other general or special law to the contrary, the annual interscholastic athletic head injury safety program required under section 222 of chapter 111 shall also include educational materials and training on hazing as defined in section 17 of chapter 269. Please sign this Petition to show your support for this bill. Our only agenda is to help protect all children, no questions asked!

New Petition: Adapt existing technology to use DRONES / capabilites to Find the Missing Quickly and solve Most other crimes

We plead with everyone to step up and get involved by educating yourself about this presentation to ask that unmanned Military drones / and or Satellite surveillance technology be used to find missing and abducted women children and men. We ask you to share this page often during your  online activities. Please book mark this page It may take you a while to go through the information presented here. YOU can help insure we find missing children women and men quickly and safely, spare families the pain of dealing with a missing loved one and our solution can reduce MOST other crimes. Please consider sharing this petition each time  you visit your social media web sites, cut and paste this URL it is a twitter Face Book compatible short URL = (  http://bit.ly/qGGCq9  ).  The time you spend sharing this information can be the most productive time you ever spent online - You will need to weigh the benefits against the drawbacks - - My Face Book Id's are "Find the Missing" and "finding missing" and "@ifindthemissing" on twitter - Please friend and follow me and share often ************************************** Don't doubt the EXISTENCE of the real time,  24/7,  high resolution, military unmanned drone imaging, storing and data transmitting technology. In this petition we provide links to the proof and offer details on our proposed solution. We are now in the process of taking thousands of perfectly good drones out of service because of our cutback in involvement in other countries That would be wasting billions of dollars - when putting them to use finding the missing could SAVE billions of dollars = its a no brainer We will let the criminals know they WILL be caught, in most cases WITHIN minutes - YES Minutes of them being reported. Cases like the San Bernardino Attack the Boston Bombings / Diana Zacarias / Casey Anthony / The Cleveland Three Amanda Berry - Michelle Knight and Gina De Jesus abducted by Ariel Castro and found after 11 years  / etc etc the list is endless / would ALL have been solved quickly.  The time has come for EVERY caring American to step up and be heard and ask our elected officials to live up to their oath and promises to protect us all. It is our goal to educate every citizen and allow them to decide if this is something they would endorse.  Here is a site which informs and addresses the benefits and drawbacks of  using the technology presented on this petition - with scenarios of how the Technology could work http://trenton.2truth.com, once there - visit our other links/pages with missing person cases You might know one of the missing we profile there Crime is rampant, 2000 WOMEN CHILDREN and MEN GO MISSING every day --  the criminals AND terrorists need to be stopped and We need to be protected with every tool we have. Using our existing drone and satellite photo taking and transmitting technology can do that - the drones will be mothballed after we leave Afghanistan - we have paid for them - lets use them to protects us HEREIF the satellite or unmanned drone surveillance technology, which our military has developed over decades had been in place, the 3 Women just found alive in Cleveland would have been found within hours of their going missing OVER A DECADE AGO - ( most likely they and the multitude of others who go missing every day would be found WITHIN MINUTES - YES MINUTES of their being reported missing --The Boston Bombers could have been tracked and found within minutes after they were identified, saving the hundreds of millions of dollars ( 1/2 Billion ) lost and spent on the investigation and it would have saved Patrolman Sean Collier, the M.I.T. policeman's, life.The case of the boy who stabbed his sister in California would have been solved within minutes after seeing no one else entered or left the house. The exact whereabouts of the gun and knife Jodi Arias used to Murder Travis Alexander would be known and those pieces of evidence would have been found, and undoubtedly led to a much shorter trial ( which has cost Arizona over 2 Million Dollars so far.It would solve most other crimes ( armed robberies, stolen cars, murders, rapes, home invasions, burglaries, bank robberies, assaults - ANY crime, etc etc ) quickly with less investigative work and far less cost to taxpayers and spare millions of us the pain of  dealing with being a crime victim and save hundreds of billions of dollars by solving those crimes quickly in years to comePlease share this info on twitter and Face Book - Its the least you can do. You can use this shortened twitter URL -- http://bit.ly/qGGCq9 WHEN sharing this petitionThe Invasion of Privacy Argument DOES NOT hold up - Criminals AND terrorists do NOT respect or abide by laws  and they will invade your privacy in a flash  -  and the chance of your privacy being invaded by the implementation of the proposed system is far less than the chance of your being a victim of crime.Again You will need to weigh the benefits against the drawbacks -  Here is the site which addresses the aspects of  using this technology - with scenarios of how the Technology could work and save lives and spare victims and their families the pain of dealing with such atrocities http://trenton.2truth.comWe can't rely on GPS or cell phone trackers - the criminals can render them useless qiuickly and dispose of those easily. The miscreants can find implanted chips and excise them by cutting them out.The Targets of this petition ( recipients ) -- are our highest elected officials and Major Media Outlets --- they will get copies of this petition automatically after you sign it.The letter which will be sent to the recipient list is found belwo at the"Petition Letter" section on this pageThis is NOT A Petition for a New Law  == BECAUSE  More Than Passing Laws Needs To Be Done BUT if laws need to be changed it is the duty of our elected officials to change them.Are you aware we have the capability to take real time high resolution satellite and unmanned drone images and videos of Almost any area in the U.S. and transmit those pics back to earth WITHIN SECONDS Once More, Our Military has developed and perfected the system since the first spy satellites were launched in the late 1950's and We have an estimated 1200 drones in use over Afghanistan and those systems will be moth-balled, phased out or scrapped when our troops are pulled out in 2014. Are you willing to throw away the trillions spent on the development of those systems when they could be used for so much good.I repeat, I am begging ALL who read this --- If you agree, PLEASE take the time to post notices about this petition on ALL the ONLINE Sites you visit - Cut and paste the URL from the browser bar or use the short URL  http://bit.ly/qGGCq9  ; - YOU can be responsible for Saving victims and helping crime victims.The mainstream media has up to now ignored my requests to even mention the existence of the technology OR THIS effort. Add your Voice, post a notice on the social Media pages OR send separate EMAILS to ALL media outlets and request they help educate ALL Americans -- again the url is    http://bit.ly/qGGCq9  This petition requests the media to inform the public so we can ask our elected leaders to take drastic steps to dramatically reduce and SOLVE Most CRIMES WITHIN MINUTES AND stop the scourge of  Missing Children Women and Men which is sweeping our country. The Boston Bombers could have tracked within minutes after they were identified.It is no secret these systems have been used for decades by our military to watch our enemies and to protect our troops and used to track and find Osama Bin Laden. The only secret is their actual capabilities. But we can assume they are awesome.  Our government hid the SR-71 and the stealth fighter and B2 bomber from us for many many years too.IF Adapted for use by Law Enforcement,  this technology would be  the Solution to Finding Missing Children Women & Men Quickly, solve and drastically reduce other crimes WITHIN MINUTES of them being reported - the satellite or drone technology COULD also provide police with indisputable proof of someones innocence or guilt.Gun Violence and murders may drop along with the other crimes.All the details are presented on our main web site linked belowPlease Educate yourself about this solution, the time you spend will be the  most  productive you have EVER spent online.  PLEASE Book Mark the pages and links below so you can return to them easily( This effort is funded completely by myself  I never ask for any money )Once more: We could track and Find most missing persons and  spare tens of millions of families the pain of dealing with a missing loved one PLUS SOLVE and Drastically reduce & solve ALL type of crimes like those mentioned above and will let the criminals know they WILL be caught, in most cases WITHIN minutes - YES Minutes of them being reported.The technology would provide proof of ones innocence or guilt with NO Doubt  and avoid situations like the recent Trayvon Martin Murder case and the Troy Davis executionThe existing technology presented in this document is NOT micro chipping, GPS tracking or cell phone tracking, While those methods could be used for some protection - They are marginally effective and would not STOP the crimes. It is not the use of drones. The drawbacks of using those methods and ways of tracking the missing are addressed on our Main Web Page at THIS LINK HERE - http://findthemissing.vze.comWe plead with our elected leaders who receive this petition to step up and adapt the existing military satellite or drone surveillance technology which can again: capture real time, high resolution, close up,  photos from space of ANY crime scene, street, road or area in the U.S. and transmit those photos within seconds back to earth to be viewed and responded to by Law Enforcement - Again this can be done within MINUTES  for almost any crime scene - YES MINUTESPLUS such a system would save Hundreds of Billions in Taxpayer dollars in the first years, that money is now spent on Police searches, investigations and court proceeding as presented in the detailed info seen in the "Cost" and "Proof" section on our efforts MAIN WEB site found at http://findthemissing.vze.comWe also present a link to a page which presents scenarios of how the system would work at http://trenton.2truth.com ; Read and be amazed at what can be done.Until the media gets onboard -- Please educate yourself then make a decision to get involved or not.We are well aware of the "Invasion of Privacy" issue and the Paranoid's "Big Brother" fears, The bottom line is This can Drastically reduce crime and provide a safer environment for ALL Americans. Will the criminals respect your privacy ? NO ! Will this stop them ? YES. We address the Privacy aspect of our proposal in the section 'Invasion of privacy Concerns" on the Main web page seen linked below.If the media would become active in informing the masses about this possible solution and Allow each person to decide if it is something they would like to see in place,  then each individual can get more involved. Please we beg you --  sign this petition to request our Elected officials to act. It will be sent automatically to the list of over 50 recipientsCaylees Law and other laws do little to actually solve the problem. Talking about the missing on TV does nothing to stop the atrocities. Except for Americas Most Wanted None of the TV shows which depend on missing person cases for ratings have EVER been responsible for a missing person being found - NOT ONE...Remember:  Our Mission is ULTIMATELY  to get action from Our Elected officials by creating widespread public awareness with media cooperation and hopefully create a ground swell of activity to convince ALL Americans to get involved in getting those elected officials to ACT AND adapt the system for use by ALL Law Enforcement AgenciesI must say again:  Read how the system would work and what  the positive outcome of using the existring technology could be at http://trenton.2truth.com - then ACT AND sign this petition - and share the info by posting on ALL the social media sitesI repeat: We have paid for this technology, it has been developed and perfected and has been /  is being used to protect our troops, It has been in place over countries in which the U.S. has been involved in military actions since the mid 1970's. So in those 40 years it has been honed and perfected. We need to see that it is adapted and used for the benefit of ALL Americans.Once More: to the Media: the public must be told about this and allowed to band together and request President Obama and other elected officials to challenge and instruct NASA, Our Military and their affiliates to work together to adapt EXISTING systems of satellite surveillance technology to assist Police and Law Enforcement Agencies in solving ANY crimes, including child abductions Missing women and men, rapes, home invasions, car thefts ALL within Minutes of them being reported thus we can SAVE victims lives and spare tens of millions of families the pain of dealing with a missing loved one in the future AND REAP the other benefits.Plus implementing the EXISTING TECHNOLOGY would save a major portion of the estimated 9.6 Billion dollars spent on the over 800,000 BASIC searches for missing Americans each year. That does NOT include the savings of  hundreds of billions MORE in future years on court cases ( trials for the criminals who were caught in the act ) and investigations for other crimes which would be solved quickly.The proposed system can also be used to protect Our borders. We need to create wide spread public awareness to the existence of the systems and OUR effort gives every American a chance to join in and help make a "Change"To be sure the media gets our message PLEASE cut and paste the URL http://sign.1sta.com ; into an email and send it to ALL the media outlets you can find, local, national, radio, tv, newspapers and online blogs,  and to your local politicians and police departments or post it in articles you find online about crime. We think many of those who are on the list to have this sent to them automatically through Change.org have now blocked it from getting through to them. The response to Caylee's Law Change.org petition of over 1,400,000 signatures and the Trayvon Martin Petition with over 1,500,000 in just DAYS should indicate to every one, there are many who care and want something done. The Cleveland Three - Trayvon Martin and Caylee Anthony will stand as a beacons to anyone who needs proof thing can get done BY "We the People"Please choose the Opt out option or check the box provided to NOT receive emails in the future. You might need to set your profile settings. Thank YouContact:Bill Tomsck

Change MA law regarding child abuse. Harsher jail sentences and more rights for Children!

Our current laws in Massachusetts to protect innocent children and to get the justice they rightfully deserve is broken. Your attention to this matter is requested. The laws in Massachusetts regarding child abuse are not acceptable. My two year old was physically abused by a "man" named Nathan St. Pierre. This man got out on $1,000 bail! The parents of the abused child (myself and Joshua Renaud) were never notified. I am living in fear of this monster constantly. A protection order means nothing. My daughter deserves to see justice from what this monster did to her. 5 years is nothing! He took her innocence away, caused her PTSD, night terrors and separation anxiety.To top it off the MA law states that the accused has a right to face their accuser. Well the accuser is a 3 year old little girl who was a victim of his malicious violence. If we go to trial she will have to face the monster who abused her. She has to sit and point him out and say what he did to her. No child should have to be victimized again. The MA law as it is right now is victimizing children for a second time. The child should be able to sit in a separate room and see a picture of the man and say that is the man/woman who hurt me. They should not be expected to go on the stand. I am looking for harsher punishments and to help our child not be re-victimized again! I want to make a law called Chloe's Law.  Please help our system change. Our children need to know they got justice! #JusticeforChloe.

Send Helicopter Aid to Puerto Rico to save lives NOW!

Supplies getting to Puerto Rico have been bottlenecked. They are sitting in warehouses in Puerto Rico and are not being distributed to the people on the island that are in desperate need.  People are living without access to food and water.  Because of the Jones act the island is unable to receive aid from anywhere but the USA unless the USA decides to waive this (which as of 9/26 they have not).  We also have failing infrastructure throughout the island due to the overwhelming amount of debt we hold and an unyielding attitude to allow us to restructure the debt or have access to bankruptcy court.  PROMESA was nothing but broken promises to our people.  We have still seen no debt relief in any form since the passing of the bill.  We demand respect and dignity as people who have been continuously exploited by the USA despite the immense sacrifices we have made for this country economically and militarily.  We demand the following: 1. Suspend the Jones Act just as was done for FL & TX & allow foreign relief vessels into Puerto Rico. EEUU controls air and marine frontiers in Puerto Rico. They need to be open NOW for any and all international help. The Jones Act needs to be waived for hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.2. Send immediate and massive aid to Puerto Rico beginning with helicopters to distribute donations and rescue people in areas that are cut off & including cell towers to aid in communications for residents & relief workers.3. Pass bankruptcy relief legislation & negotiate public debt relief immediately.4. Pass a major reconstruction bill that includes solar energy & other sustainable technology that will save millions in the long run.
