Stronger punishment for perpetrators of tool thefts from tradesman's vehicles.
My name's mark and I'm a 46yr old self employed carpenter, like many self employed tradesmen I have to purchase my own tools for the trade I have chosen. Of The replacement of these tools usually costs thousands of pounds and in some cases insurance companies have six weeks to settle any claims. That's a six week financial burden to a victim of this crime. Several friends of mine were victims of tool theft from their vans, and I too have been a victim. Luckily my home insurance paid out for the tools I lost. Another carpenter in my village had everything taken from his vehicle for he second time that year. Not everyone can empty their vans at night and not everyone has insurance cover. This type of crime is classed as petty crime but to a tradesmen who has paid for his tools with blood sweat and tears doesn't feel this is a petty crime. Every morning I walk out my house wondering if today is the day that my van has been broken into. I'm calling for this crime to have more severe punishments as it affects hundreds of hard-working tradesmen, every day I see more victims posting about their plight via Facebook and it's sickening to see. A tradesman's tools are his livelihood. There are organised gangs traveling the length of the country helping themselves to thousands of pounds worth of tools by peeling open the doors of hard-working tradesmen's vans and helping themselves to their tools. Some even purchase specialist keys to decode and open vans without causing damage to the vehicle, mainly fords. These gangs are so organised and know many ways to break into the vans with no sign of entery leaving us unable to claim on our insurance. the punishment needs to meet the severity of the crime. The police mostly just give out a crime number which in many occasions are of no use as tools need replacing instantly also our van insurance rises. Insurance companies base premiums on postcodes and crime figures so this crime affects us all. The people suffering are the hard working tradesman who build and maintain the infrastructure of this country. A ban on insurance increases to victims of van crime should be put in place, and emergency low or interest free government loans should be put in place to help relieve the burden to the innocent victims of this type of crime. Tradesmen help the economy tick over in the hard times and generate great income in the form of TAX in the good times.This type of crime is now at epidemic proportions and needs addressing by those who we have appointed to run this country on our behalf. It will not be long before there is a fatality, either a victim of the crime or a perpetrator. A man's tools are his and his family's livelihood and in the heat of the moment he will defend them as if his life depended on it. Please help the situation before more innocent people fall victim of these low vile organised criminal gangs. Please sign and share with all your friends and support all victims of this crime and call for stronger punishment for perpetrators. Thank you on behalf of all UK tradesmen.

Make Autistic hate crime as punishable as racism
Far too often in the United Kingdom we see some of the most vulnerable members of our society i:e the Autistic community being abused to the highest degree, they are subjected to horrific levels of bullying and psychological torture; often by those who pretend to befriend them just so they can exploit them for their own personal gain and amusement. Autistic teenager 16 year old Emily O'Reilly (pictured above) was brutalised on her way to a friends house. http://metro.co.uk/2017/02/16/autistic-girl-16-left-with-horrific-injuries-after-being-attacked-by-another-girl-6452142/ If you follow the link above then you will see the urgency of this epidemic, the consequences of such treatment and atrocities are often fatal; why should it be allowed to continue that the lives of some of our most vulnerable are left so undervalued in both society and the justice system? The 1 in 100 people in the United Kingdom who are born with this condition who will most likely experience this kind of abuse is far too many to not implement stronger sentencing for those who commit targeted violent attacks against the autistic community. I urge the government to advise and work with the justice system to put in new legislation, and to follow the guidelines in sentencing already regarding racially, religiously and sexually motivated attacks; let them be just as protected under hate crime laws as everyone else. Thank you and please share & sign!

Release the seven innocents of Kandhamal
Seven innocent Christians from remote Kandhamal district in Odisha state of India are languishing in jail following the mysterious murder of Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati on August 23, 2008. These innocent Christians - six of them illiterates - were convicted in 2013 for the murder touted as a Christian conspiracy. Following the Hindu leader's murder, nearly 100 Christians had been killed and 300 churches and 6,000 Christian houses plundered and torched in unabated violence that continued for weeks. Hindu masses - most of them illiterate - had been incited to take revenge on the Christians after the slain Swami's body was paraded across Kandhamal for two days along zigzag routes. A third judge of the trial court - after two judges were transferred - convicted the accused Christians and sentenced them to life imprisonment on the basis of a fabricated Christian conspiracy theory despite hardly any credible evidence brought before the court. In mid 2015, two top police officials - who had relied upon the same conspiracy theory to ensure the conviction of the accused - have testified before the Kandhamal judicial Inquiry commission that the allegations were false. Yet, the hearing on the appeal of the innocent convicts has been repeatedly postponed by the Odisha High Court. Hence, I urge the Chief Justice of India and other constitutional authorities to end the travesty of justice and release the seven innocents...

Introduce ‘Helen’s Law': where hiding a body, preventing a burial and obstructing a coroner become criminal offences - with ‘whole life’ tariffs
To lose a loved one is devastating. To lose a loved one to murder is horrific. To be denied their funeral causes unimaginable suffering. I have endured this nightmare for almost 28 years. Ian Simms is serving a life sentence (on overwhelming forensic evidence) for the murder of my daughter Helen McCourt, aged 22, on 9 February 1988, in Billinge, Lancs. For almost three decades Simms has refused to reveal the whereabouts of Helen’s body – denying us the chance to grant her the dignity of a funeral and resting place.The case made legal history as only the third ever UK murder trial without a body. Sadly, as killers go to ever-desperate lengths to hide evidence and evade justice such cases have become more common. Without stiffer penalties they will continue to rise. In January 2016 a Parole Board will decide on Simms’ application for freedom. As it currently stands, the English legal system does not require a convicted murderer (at the end of their determined tariff) to admit guilt or reveal the location of a victim’s remains before being released. If parole is granted, my hopes of finding my daughter may never be realised. No other family should live this ordeal.I, hereby, petition the Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May to acknowledge the pain and distress caused to the families of missing murder victims by: Denying parole to murderers for as long as they refuse to disclose the whereabouts of their victim’s remains Passing a full life tariff (denying parole or release) until the murderer discloses the location (and enables the recovery) of their victim’s remains Automatically applying the following rarely-used common law offences in murder trials without a body*; preventing the burial of a corpse and conspiracy to prevent the burial of a corpse, disposing of a corpse, obstructing a coroner (*as in the case of R v Hunter, 1974 (from Archbold, Criminal Pleading Evidence and Practice 2015) Denying a funeral is, surely, an infringement of basic human rights. Please support me. Picture by Chris Neill

Immediate custodial sentences foe ANYONE caught carrying a knife .
My brother lance gregory was murdered in a senseless cowardly knife attack in 2012 . Due to our weak justice system HI'd killer is out this year. This has no way had amy significant impact on his life. He can still come out have kids and be part of a family.His term of 10 years do 5 is an insult I've known burglars get longer .This has to change if you carry a knife and get caught the justice system needs to come down hard and fast and if a murder or an assault occurs using a knife then the sentances need to reflect that. They have taken a life and not only done that but impacted on a whole family and alot of other people i.e family friends partners work colleagues the list is endless. So please sign this if you agree that lives are worth more than these insulting short sentances. Also They say there's a hefty sentence for carrying a knife but 9 times out of 10 a knife is just confiscated there is no fear of consequences for carrying a knife this needs to change now before we loose another life so therefore my aim in this petition is an imediate custodial sentence if caught with a knife .We need to put a fear factor in place so that people don't want to be caught carrying a knife because they know 100% they WILL go to prison no caution or fine just compulsary custodial sentences.
Petition to Steve AshmanChief Constable Northumbria Police and Alison Saunders Head of CPS.
Washington, Tyne & Wear UK Police have stopped me posting the TRUTH.
One of my decision makers is to retire.The two people in the picture is Chief Constable of Northumbria Police Steve Ashman (to retire) and Dame Vera Baird QC Police & Crime Commissioner. I have been battling with a mental illness for over twenty years.Vulnerability attracted an individual who took over my life.At four hours at a time he would groom me into a state of fear, Health & Safety, local government and any type of officialdom, he already knew that I struggled to cope with brown envelopes, the telephone, and debate.This individual decided to sell my property from under me.He got his brother-in -law (estate agent)to come to my property to give a rough idea of the value of my home, after the visit without my permission, he put scaffolding up that remained there for two years.He then took off the roof and because he hadn't paid the scaffolding company the scaffolding was removed and for a further two years I had no roof, the water poured in and caused a lot of damage.I was emptying pails of water 24/7.Then I had to buy a new roof with money I had to find for a roof that didn't need replacing.This individual used my address as his own and when he upset some of his workmen, they broke all of my windows with a BB gun.During his reign he took me to cash machines, he even had to show me how to use the machine as I had no need for them.He also took me to the post office and bank to extort money to the value of £22,000.00 from me.He would write out a cheque letting me think he was paying me back and telling me when to cash it, one was for £15,000.00, it was returned as the account didn't exist.I feel having a mental illness invites abuse.The Police, CPS, and Politicians do not understand my illness.The individual has walked away with my money, leaving me in wet deplorable living conditions and the Police have just allowed this to happen.I have pleaded with Mrs. Alison Saunders, Head of CPS to give me some justice, but she has ignored me.My illness made me suffer in silence for many years until the Police came looking for the individual because he was selling hired power tools, it was then the Police found out what was going on.

I want the person who abused my sister in hospital struck off from working with patients.
My sister was beaten up in hospital last July by two members of staff. She was dragged by her legs across the floor, all she was doing was sitting by the ward office door waiting for the office staff to respond to her needs. All she wanted was her bottle of Coca-Cola they had taken away from her. We complained in August with a written complaint. We have still not had a reply. Since this complaint my sister died in a fire at the hospital they say are not treating as suspicious but now my sister has been silenced forever but I won't give up fighting for her. As her family we want justice served on whoever was responsible for doing this. Thereally were witnesses but the patients are too scared as it could easily have been them next. It's so fare being pushed aside as under investigation once again and the two people who did this are still working at the hospital with mental illness vulnerable patients. Please support this so these bullys can be struck off from ever working with vulnerable people. It's too late now for my sister but we will not give up untill justice is served and no body has to go through what we have endured as a family.
Petition to The Justice Minister
The trial of Mr Rolf Harris at Southwark Crown Court.
I respectfully relate to you my deep concerns of the verdicts given by the jury in the case detailed above. I ask that the case be reviewed as a matter of urgency.
The integrity of the UK criminal justice system has fallen into 'Kangaroo Court' style persecutions due to the 'I believe you' edict of sexual abuse allegations. The 'I believe you' edict of our justice system must be reversed and replaced with objective and neutral investigation. Even juries are told by judges to 'believe' what is obviously untrue because of these crude and archaic guidelines, resulting in miscarriages of justice and innocent people imprisoned. Rolf Harris was tried at Southwark Crown Court enduring four trials at once. There were four accusers and a total of twelve charges. Tonya Lee had already sold her story to a magazine so had a financial interest in sticking to the already published story. In court the story was shown to contain serious falsehoods and she admitted that she lied to the police. Despite this Mr Harris was found guilty. The alleged Leigh Park community centre assault was alleged to have been done at a time when Mr Harris was in fact in another part of the country, and this can be easily proved. A police search for evidence that Mr Harris had appeared at the community centre at this time confirmed that he had never appeared there at all. The police admitted in court that they had NO EVIDENCE that he had even been there, but despite this Mr Harris was found guilty. The Cambridge celebrity It's a Knockout allegation was made by a woman who claimed she was thirteen/fourteen at the time of the assault. The assault happened in public and yet nobody saw it happen. Mid trial she changed this story to fit an appearance Mr Harris had made at a Star Games event, three years later. She changed her age to sixteen/seventeen and the location miles away from the site of the original allegation. Despite this Mr Harris was found guilty. Mr Harris admitted a consensual affair with a woman younger than him but of consenting age. It was shown that this woman had attempted to blackmail him after asking him for £25000 and there was no evidence to show that any under age abuse took place as she later claimed. Despite this Mr Harris was found guilty. Mr Harris was convicted of all twelve counts after the jury were told by the trial judge to 'recognise a RED HERRING when you see one and ignore it'; but the prosecution barrister had told the jury in her closing speech that Mr Harris' explanations and denials were RED HERRINGS. Was the judge summing up on behalf of the prosecution by effectively telling the jury to ignore Mr Harris denials and explanations? This was a gross burden of bias given to the jury by the trial judge who was supposed to have summed up impartially. Criminal justice must be based on truth and not the 'I believe' edicts that allows any person to make any claim of abuse against any person and be believed; with cases going to court despite there being evidence contrary to the claims and the resultant miscarriages of justice. Mr Harris has been denied a right to appeal and this travesty of justice must be urgently reviewed and his right of appeal allowed.
