Stoppen Sie die versteckte Einführung der Todesstrafe durch die EU! Stop the hidden introduction of the death penalty by the EU!

ENGLISH BELOW!ČEŠTINA: http://cz.figu.org/petice-zastavte-skryte-zavedeni-trestu-smrti-evropskou-unii Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren Die Europäische Union (EU) hat bereits im Jahr 2009 durch den Lissabon-Vertrag vom 3.9.2009 versteckt die Todesstrafe wieder eingeführt, ohne dass das Gros der EU-Bevölkerung darüber etwas erfahren hat. Dabei kann durch militärische Eingriffe alles mit Waffengewalt durchgeführt werden, was dann unumgänglich auch mit dem Töten von Menschen verbunden ist. Das Ganze ist eine Farce und eine Scheinheiligkeit der EU ohnegleichen, wobei auch krasse Widersprüche zu den Erläuterungen der Charta der Grundrechte gegeben sind. Unter Artikel 1 heisst es: «1. Das Recht jedes Menschen auf Leben wird gesetzlich geschützt … » Und weiter heisst es: «Die Todesstrafe ist abgeschafft. Niemand darf zu dieser Strafe verurteilt oder hingerichtet werden.» Hier folgt nun aber der krasse Widerspruch: «Eine Tötung wird nicht als Verletzung dieses Artikels betrachtet, wenn sie durch eine Gewaltanwendung verursacht wird, die unbedingt erforderlich ist, um a) jemanden gegen rechtswidrige Gewalt zu verteidigen; b) jemanden rechtmässig festzunehmen oder jemanden, dem die Freiheit rechtmässig entzogen ist, an der Flucht zu hindern; 14.12.2007 DE Amtsblatt der Europäischen Union C 303/17; c) einen Aufruhr oder Aufstand rechtmässig niederzuschlagen.»     b) b) Artikel 2 des Protokolls Nr. 6 zur EMRK: «Ein Staat kann in seinem Recht die Todesstrafe für Taten vorsehen, die in Kriegszeiten oder bei unmittelbarer Kriegsgefahr begangen werden; diese Strafe darf nur in den Fällen, die im Recht vorgesehen sind, und in Übereinstimmung mit dessen Bestimmungen angewendet werden …» (Quelle: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:C:2007:303:0017:0035:DE:PDF) Diese Bestimmung ist ein schwerer Betrug an der EU-Bevölkerung, weil mit einer täuschenden Tatsachenverdrehung in arglistiger, charakterloser, durchtriebener und verschlagener Weise eine Lüge als Wahrheit ausgelegt und das Töten von Menschen als Strafe und ‹Schutzmassnahme› wieder legalisiert wird, und zwar entgegen den Volksbeschlüssen, dass keine Todesstrafe mehr gegeben sein dürfte. Artikel 102 des deutschen Grundgesetzes: «Die Todesstrafe ist abgeschafft.» und Artikel 3 Allgemeine Erklärung der Menschenrechte der Vereinten Nationen: «Jeder hat das Recht auf Leben, Freiheit und Sicherheit der Person.» Die EU-Parlamentarier, die über Gesetze und Verordnungen abzustimmen haben, scheinen offenbar nicht einmal genau zu wissen, was die EU-Mächtigen eigentlich zur Abstimmung bringen, so eben in diesem Fall die ungeheuerliche Wiedereinführung der Todesstrafe, die ein Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit ist. Kampf allen menschenunwürdigen Ausartungen! Für wahre Menschlichkeit in Liebe, Frieden, Freiheit und Harmonie unter allen Menschen! Wir fordern Sie daher auf: Setzen Sie sich in der Öffentlichkeit und im EU-Parlament mit allen legalen Mitteln dafür ein, die hinterlistige Ermächtigung zur Durchführung der Todesstrafe und zum Töten von Menschen schnellstmöglich und unwiderruflich aus der EU-Verfassung zu verbannen!

No one shall be condemned to the death penalty, or executed. » But this is then followed by the blatant contradiction: «Deprivation of life shall not be regarded as inflicted in contravention of this article when it results from the use of force which is no more than absolutely necessary:a) in defence of any person from unlawful violence;b) in order to effect a lawful arrest or to prevent the escape of a person lawfully detained; 14.12.2007 Official European Union Newsletter C 303/17;c) in action lawfully taken for the purpose of quelling a riot or insurrection.    b) b) Article 2 of the Protocol No 6 of the ECHR:«A State may make provision in its law for the death penalty in respect of acts committed in time of war or of imminent threat of war; such a penalty shall be applied only in the instances laid down in the law and in accordance with its provisions...»This entire matter is an act of severe fraud against the EU population because of the deceitful distortion of facts in a malicious, characterless, tricky and disingenuous way, in which a lie was laid out as the truth and the killing of human beings is now legalized again as a punishment and ‹protective measure›, although it blatantly contradicts the decisions of the European nations that there shall no longer be any death penalty.Thereby it seems that the EU parliamentarians, who have to vote on the laws and the edicts, as a rule apparently do not even know what the powerful ones of the EU propose to be voted upon, as in this case of the brutally inhuman reintroduction of the death penalty, etc.We request you to immediately and irrevocably abolish per law the malicious reintroduction of the death penalty and all authorizations in the EU Treaty to put human beings to death!A selection of further information:http://community.zeit.de/user/andikow/beitrag/2009/08/23/euvertrag-von-lissabon-sieht-todesstrafe-vorhttp://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:C:2007:303:0017:0035:DE:PDF --> Seite C 303/17 ff.http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertrag_von_Lissabonhttp://www.euaustrittspartei.at/eu-nein-danke/todesstrafe/http://www.gewalt-notruf.eu/index.html/index.php/die-eu-fuehrte-die-todesstrafe-wieder-einIn the English language:http://www.currentconcerns.ch/index.php?id=866http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_punishment_in_Europehttp://www.federalunion.org.uk/the-eu-and-the-death-penalty/

Petition to Governor Ralph Northam

Support Clemency for Chad O`Handley

I am starting this petition to gain your support for Chad O'Handley's clemency efforts. Chad is serving 70 years for second degree murder and robbery. Chad has already served 18 years for the crimes he was present for but maintains he did not commit. This is not an effort to establish his innocence but to reduce his punishment. We are looking for your support to reduce a sentence that feels like a life sentence and grant a second chance to a truly remorseful man. Through his incarceration he has come from a misdirected young man to a polite, affectionate, well rounded and very responsible individual. He has worked diligently on making mature decisions when dealing with daily stress and I know he has committed to himself and his family the will to become a productive and law-abiding member of society. He has come to understand the impact he had on the victims and is remorseful for his actions. He has identified what led him to his illegal activity and created a very thorough plan to avoid these situations. Most importantly, he has learned how wrong his actions were and vows to never harm another. Chad is a commendable inmate who is well respected and liked by the staff and his fellow inmates alike. He has worked hard throughout his incarceration and participated in all the programs he was offered in different facilities. He has worked as an electrician, on the paint crew, he was a tutor teaching other inmates and is currently working on the plumbing crew. He mentors and teaches other inmates and encourages them to lead a better and sober life. He has stayed out of trouble during his time and was never involved in any illegal activities or violence. On the contrary, he spends his free time productively. He is a very talented artist and contributes to the Prison Art Foundation. For the past eighteen years, Chad has witnessed the release of many offenders convicted of more severe crimes who fell under the old law granting parole and served far less time than him. There is no parole for Chad. I am asking you, Governor Northam, to please give Chad a second chance. Please have mercy and reduce his sentence. Don’t let him grow old and die in prison. As Christians we believe that God offers hope, healing, and a new purpose for each life. Even the most broken people and situations can be made whole again. Through an amazing awakening to new hope and life purpose, those who once broke the law are transformed and mobilized to serve their neighbors, and the cycle of crime is replaced by a cycle of renewal. Please sign and share this petition. Thank you and blessings to you and your families.
