Petition to Jeff Sessions, Deirdre Fike, Chief of Police Charlie Beck, Jonathan Lucas, M.D, Sarah Isgur Flores, Chief of Police Sandra Spagnoli, District Attorney Jackie Lacey, President of the United States

Marilyn Monroe deserves to have her death certificate changed!

I am a private investigator conducting an investigation into the true facts surrounding the death of Marilyn Monroe. My objective is to petition the correction of Marilyn's death certificate and requesting that the Attorney General open a criminal investigation surrounding her death. There was really never an investigation to start with.  I have always believed Marilyn Monroe was murdered along with most of the people in this world. If you look at all of the stories, books, testimonies, and even evidence then there is no reason that Marilyn Monroe’s death certificate should not be changed from probable suicide to murder. If not that, then at least accidental death.I feel that there should be a correction on Marilyn's death certificate and I am requesting that the Attorney General open the criminal investigation surrounding her death. There are two people alive who have never asked to give a statement for an investigation but were present when Marilyn Monroe took her last breath, and that is LAPD Sgt. Marvin D. Iannone who was later promoted to Chief of the Beverly Hills Police Department. Marvin Iannone dismissed the other officers from the scene the day Marilyn Monroe was found dead. Iannone was seen by several witnesses talking to Peter Lawford and assisting Lawford while cleaning up the cottage where the actual death took place. Iannone had been known to take care of Bobby Kennedy whenever Bobby came into town. How can we allow a man who pledged to protect and serve get away with actually taking part in a possible murder and/or more? And then there is Pat Newcomb (Wigan) who was supposed to have been Marilyn’s friend. Before the police could seal the house once Marilyn's body was taken away, the police noticed that Pat Newcomb kept looking through drawers and going into Marilyn’s bedroom. The police had to physically remove her. After the funeral, Pat Newcomb flew to the "Kennedy compound” at Hyannisport, Massachusetts. After that, Newcomb left the country and remained away for six months. During this period from August 1962 to February 1963, she visited Germany, France, Italy, Holland, Denmark, and Switzerland. When she returned to this country she was put on the government payroll as an information specialist  (motion pictures) for the U.S. Information Agency, 1776 Penn. Ave.  N.W., Washington, D.C. Don’t you think this is a little interesting? I do! Time is running out since Ms. Pat Newcomb is 87 years old and Mr. Iannone is 83 years old. Please help by making things right. It’s time for Marilyn Monroe to have her death cleared once and for all. And, for those who took part in her death to be criminally responsible for aiding and abetting in the death of Marilyn Monroe. It’s a disgrace that so many people have made millions of dollars out of the death of Marilyn.  The one thing that has never changed in over 53 years is the people involved, the time frame of events and the real manner of death.

Petition to Kim Foxx, Bruce Rauner

New trial for an innocent man

Detective Richard Zuley may be most famous for his notorious interrogations at Guantanamo Bay, but he first learned his torture techniques in the interrogation rooms of Chicago. Now, this 30-year veteran of the Chicago PD is under investigation for using illegal methods to coerce confessions that have put several possibly innocent people behind bars. One of his cases has already been overturned, and a man who spent 23 years in prison is now finally free. But while officials slowly make their way through the pages of evidence against this corrupt cop, my friend Lee Harris -- another of Zuley’s many victims -- still wastes away in prison.   My name is Robert. From 2000-2001, I shared a cell with Lee. We became good friends. Like a lot of people in prison, he would go on about how he was innocent and how he had been wrongly accused, but I never knew what to believe. However, when I received letters from the “witness” who put him away, apologizing for lying on the stand, I started digging: Lee’s conviction doesn’t add up. And now that I am on the outside, I am doing everything I can to get him a new trial so he can prove his innocence. I am asking Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office to grant my friend Lee Harris a new trial, so he can prove his innocence. He shouldn’t spend one more day behind bars while the true criminal is allowed to walk free. At first, Lee collaborated with Detective Zuley to help him find the real killer in the crime he is doing time for. Facing public pressure to find the killer, they pressed Lee for information using both threats and rewards. In one instance, Zuley offered him a $20,000 reward, and in another, he threatened to stop providing protection for his family, exposing them to retaliation. When they couldn’t find the real killer, they turned on their informant and charged him with the crime. They had no murder weapon or evidence connecting Lee to the crime. Yet, even with all these legal missteps and the lack of evidence, they still threw Lee behind bars for 90 years. He remains in jail to this day for a crime I am sure he didn’t commit. And I am not the only one: Chicago attorney Jennifer Blagg, who has won many exonerations in the US, is now taking a closer look at Harris’ conviction. It’s time to grant my friend Lee Harris a new trial and let true justice be served. We cannot continue to keep this man behind bars while the real killer could be walking the streets. Please sign my petition and help me fight for justice for Lee Harris.

Petition to The United States Congress

Stop Facebook from unreasonable mass blocking of Ukrainian users

Honorable Congressmen & Congresswomen of the 115th U.S. Congress,we're writing in the hopes that you will pay an attention to a problem related to an american company (Facebook, Inc.) and therefore to US national security.We're Ukrainian citizens and citizens of other countries who respect and support Ukraine. We know that the U.S. Congress is already worried about national security related problems caused by Facebook, Inc. (data leak to Russia, Russian intervention into US elections). Could you please also pay an attention for another Facebook and Russia related problem?On July 9-10, 2018 almost 300,000 of Ukrainian users left a feedback on FIFA's Facebook page. We left 1 (minimal allowed) star of 5 stas either with "Glory to Ukraine" only or with more detailed explanation. We did it because FIFA fined Croatian soccer team player over a video he published with "Glory to Ukraine" phrase said. This phrase is not less important for us than "In God We Trust" or "God Bless America" for US citizens. There is nothing bad in this phrase, it's just about giving a respect to our country. US representatives in Ukraine, presidents of other countries say "Glory to Ukraine" when they want to wish the best to our country and to let us know they are respect and support us.At the same times FIFA is publishing videos like this one on their official channel. With USSR symbolic, that is forbidden by laws in Ukraine and in other countries, including some EU countries. FIFA promotes soviet totalitarianism and nonexistent country on the official channel but doesn't allow a player to express respect to our country.This is the reason we, Ukrainians, become angry and left 1 star feedback for FIFA. This is our right to say "Glory to Ukraine" and there were no violations of Facebook rules in leaving 1 star feedback. Our family members, our friends left the feedback, thousand of Ukrainians did that. There were thousands and thousands of angry people, but this is why reviews functionality exists in internet - so people can say they are happy or angry with some goods, companies, non commercial organizations.But then we found that reviews section just disappeared from the page (it's not fair, but Facebook allows to do that if page owner is unhappy with feedback) and the people that left feedback got blocked by Facebook from leaving any new reviews. Actually we can't event review a cafe or restaurant. Same happened to many people that left feedback on the FIFA page. For some people Facebook blocked other functions as well: they can't for example Like a page. This is a really warning case of discrimination and censorship based on nationality and private opinion. The opinion that is not corresponding with the opinion of sponsored by Russia organizations (like FIFA), that is not corresponding with the opinion of Russian investors/partners of Facebook.And this is not first case of mass blocking of accounts of Ukrainians. Many of us got accounts blocked (temporary, up to one month, or even forever), because of posts and comments with an opinion that Russia doesn't like (Russian doesn't like we and our country exist at all). But this time it affected too many people in Ukraine and our right to respect and support our country has been violated.Sadly, Facebook doesn't show any desire to make sure all customers have equal rights. As we know, they have a new head of public policy (in Warsaw, Poland), who worked for Russian government in the past (Uliana Zinina) and who is responsible now for Facebook's public policy in Eastern Europe including Ukraine. We don't think that any Russia connected person can make sure customers in Ukraine or Poland have their rights respected, while Russia is invading Ukraine and planning future invasions to other countries, including EU/NATO countries.We all hope that you'll review this problem very carefully. US company is violating basic civil rights and helps an aggressor to censor public opinion. Today it's a problem for Ukrainians, tomorrow US citizens and national security will be affected.If you'll be interested we can provide more details about Facebook/Russia related problems that Ukrainian Facebook users are experiencing since Russian aggression in 2014.With all respect,Ukrainian citizens and people that respect and support Ukraine.God Bless America! Glory to Ukraine! Слава Україні!=========================================Підписуйте, поширюйте! Звернення до Конгресу США з приводу масово порушення американською компанією Facebook наших громадянських прав - масового блокування акаунтів українців за будь-яке висловлення проукраїнської позиції чи критику антиукраїнської діяльності людей, організацій чи цілих країн. Це стосується не лише останніх подій з FIFA, але і масового блокування акаунтів українських активістів, яке Фейсбук здійснює починаючи з 2014 року. А також того, як Фейсбук відреагував на всі попередні скарги - в грудні 2017 року на посаду Head of public policy Фейсбуку (офіс в Варшаві) призначено росіянку, яка в минулому (чи лише в минулому?) працювала в державних органах росії. Тепер вона відповідає за політику Фейсбуку щодо всіх країн Східної Європи, включно з Україною.В Конгресі США зараз дуже прискіпливо вивчають як Росія через Фейсбук отримала доступ до даних десятків мільйонів американців, втручалася у виборчий процес. Саме час заявити про те, як Фейсбук порушує наші права, позбавляє нас права висловлювати повагу до власної країни і навіть права негативно оцінювати тих, хто зневажає Україну.Слава Україні! Glory to Ukraine!Подія у Фейсбук для запрошення друзів до підписання звернення
