Keep serial killer Ivan Milat from our living rooms

A family member started this petition to Julie Flynn (FreeTV Australia) and

The Milat murders were one of the most horrendous crimes ever to occur in Australia. They caused unspeakable fear, horror, and heartache. These sickening events should not be the subject of a dramatized television show, broadcast into millions of living rooms. As a family member of one of the victims, all I can think of is my distraught grandparents, parents, and extended family having to relive the worst of experiences, week after week. Australia has so many incredible citizens and wonderful stories to be shared, why is this show even being considered?

Then there is the fact that Ivan Milat is so desperate for media coverage that he cut off his own finger and tried to send it to the High Court of Australia. It is strongly believed that one of his primary reasons for committing the atrocities he did was to "get attention". According to psychologists, there are no lengths Milat will not go to in order to gain the spotlight. Why would Channel 7 go out of their way to want give him exactly what he wants- more of the notoriety he craves? He deserves punishment and condemnation not celebration and fame. He deserves to remain forgotten in jail for the rest of his days, alone and unimportant. 

Please help us to send Channel 7 the message that Australia does not want this man and his story on our televisions.
