0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


We the undersigned people of the United States of America, in order to form an even more perfect union, establish true justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of liberty denied to the ancestors of too many of us and their posterity, do ordain and establish these concrete demands for true structural change to the United States of America.

  • In the immediate and seminal event for the current strife the arrest and charge with first degree murder of all officers involved in the murder of George Floyd in the city fo Minneapolis, in the state of Minnesota, in May two thousand and twenty. 
  • An apology from every politician left or right democrat or republican who failed to provide leadership including both candidates for president of the United States.  Mayors of major cities in which police acted with brutality against protesters as well as governors of those states.

Demands for Long term systematic change.
A commitment to work on the following actions.

  • A full investigation to root out the elements, regardless of political affiliation, who sought to use these righteous protest as cover for criminal activity, to disrupt the practice of the constitutional rights of the protesters, to create a dangerous situation for the police, and to make a hellish year 2020 even more apocalyptic.   
  • The passage of a constitutional amendment to the effect establishing both the rights of those in police custody, and the right and the express responsibility of police to protect the established constitutional rights of all they interact with in an official capacity.   Including specifically.
  • The protection of the lives of those they are sworn to serve and protect even at hazard to their own lives.
  • The specific protection of the first, second, fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth, 13th and 14th amendment rights at all times, in detention, arrest, protest, assembly lawful or unlawful or any other similar interaction.  With the exceptions of invasion, natural disaster, national emergency, or to prevent secession from the United States of America.
    • Suggested text:   For the establishment of a more orderly and freer society the boundaries of law must be clearly established for all citizens.  Law enforcement officers have a duty to protect the lives of those under their power even at hazard of their own lives. Law enforcement agents must uphold the constitution of the United States of America in its entirety in all circumstances, specifically, first, second, fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth, 13th and 14th amendment rights at all times, in detention, under arrest, while incarcerated, during protest, or assembly  that is lawful or unlawful or any other similar interaction.  The United States of America apologizes for the fact that such rights were denied to African American, and sometimes other citizens, for racist and discriminatory reasons.    

 

We the undersigned agree that if the above steps are taken immediately the current riots will end.  Furthermore we believe that the long term systemic change of specifically putting police on notice that they have a duty to uphold the rights of those whom they are sworn to protect will lessen if not prevent incidents such as the killing of George Floyd.    They will provide a framework for civil rights prosecution of police officers who violate the proposed amendment, as well as a framework for civil rights legislation, and lawsuits.  Those are the tools of lawful, peaceful, justice in a free society with true rule of law.
