Install automatic sprinklers at every gas station

On November 4th, 2009, my son Ainsley Gordon was burned to death at an EXXON  GAS STATION in Frederick MD, while filling his gas tank, the gas attendant ran away from him with the fire extinguisher inhand, then stood watching while he burn to death.  Ainsley's  death was never investigated properly, the Fire Marshal who performed the investigation said he might have done it to himself but she did not know how.   

The survellance video and  the report does not correspond with each other, Maryland State Fire Marshall William Bernard refused to view the survellance video and look into the case. For the past 4 1/2 years I have been going to various government offices without results. a copy of the fire marshal's report was sent to Maryland State Senate Jennie Forehand about a year ago (summer of 2013) according to her chief of staff someone will contact me, after numerous phone calls to her office I was instructed to wait.  automatic sprinklers with trained staff for emergency situations would have saved Ainsley's  life.

I started this petition for your help in making gas stations safer for everyone. Please sign my petition.

Thank You
