End Probation for Wallace "Wallo267" Peeples
At age 17, Wallace "Wallo 267" Peeples was sentenced to a 20 year prison sentence for armed robbery, which he served at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. While he has turned his life around, not just for him, but to save the lives of others, he is still on probation until October 29, 2048! Wallo is 41 and will be 68 years old when his probation ends. Wallo is a national phenom, using his platform to empower others. He regularly feeds the homeless, financially supports families in need and mentors young men so they do not make bad choices that will land them in prison. He is the ultimate role model for youth and a community resource, but he is living his life, everyday, with the fear that at any time he can be sent back to prison because he is still on probation. Despite having served his sentence and proving to society that he is full rehabilitated and an exemplary citizen. He is still on probation for 27 more years. For 27 more years his life is limited. His case shows how the criminal justice system is gravely flawed. Mel Wells, President of One Day At A Time (ODAAT), is a thought leader and advocate on issues such as gun violence, the opioid epidemic, economic disenfranchisement and criminal justice reform. Mel has become a voice for those who have become marginalized by their circumstances and is standing with Wallo on this important issue. Mel stated, "By ending Wallo's probation early, we have a chance to move the needle forward in Criminal Justice Reform. The Governor, Attorney General and District Attorney have the power to write a positive ending to this chapter of Wallo's life and in the lives of thousands of men and women that have served their time and are doing their best to live the rest of their lives doing right. They should not have to do that in constant fear of going back to prison." Sign this petition to end Wallo's probation AND then continue to support ODAAT in continuing the fight to reform the criminal justice system. Wallo's Story As an adolescent, Wallace "Wallo 267" Peeples had spent time in and out of the juvenile system. He was eventually sentenced to a 20 year prison sentence for armed robbery, which he served at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. However, during his 20 year sentence, he became an avid reader in jail. In less than two years after serving his 20 year prison sentence, Wallo quickly rose as a leader in his community crafting powerful viral content inspiring people across the world to step into their greatness and discover their purpose. Currently, Wallo's social media platforms accumulate over 10 million+ impressions weekly and his followers have become evangelists, sharing his high-energy videos of inspiration, humor, and hard-earned lessons delivered with his signature unflinching honesty and humor. He has been able to leverage his social media brand to get into partnerships with the NFL Network, Global Citizen, Foot Locker, Puma, and Philly Union. This petition was created by Mel Wells and One Day At A Time. Learn more about ODAAT at www.odaatphilly.org

13 YEARS for a crime he did NOT commit!!
This is an attempt to receive justice for an innocent man who was wrongfully convicted of a crime he did not commit. On July 24th 2008 Dwayne Stewart (32), was charged with aggravated malicious wounding, shooting in a occupied building, possession of a firearm, robbery, and grand larceny. On the night of December 3, 2007, Stewarts associate Brandon Smith exploited him in order to commit a heinous crime. Smith asked Stewart to take him to the home of the victim. Unbeknown to Stewart, Smith’s intention was to murder the person in that home as retaliation and he did just that. Stewart did not fire a gun the night of the shooting nor was he aware of what was going to take place. Despite that, Stewart has been incarcerated for 13 years serving a 18 year sentence. To this day, Dwayne Stewart has maintained his claim of innocence and is fighting for his freedom after being wrongfully convicted. In July of 2019, Brandon Smith wrote an affidavit admitting that he alone commited the crime. He states that, “...everything was my fault and was done because of me. I tricked and manipulated the others as part of my hidden agenda to take revenge on Mr. Gorham”. Dwayne has not been able to be a father to his son, over this crime that was committed by Brandon Smith. Smith, has agreed to take a lie detector test to confirm his actions. Stewart has moved forward with asking for a conditional pardon. Evidence used to convict one person, shall also serve its purpose in proving anothers innocence. It was written clearly and mentioned several times that Dwayne Stewart was another victim in this crime, because he was hoaxed into being an unknown party to a heinous crime.

Free Jaime Hernandez - Clemency Project
To all my friends and family, this petition is for my cousin Jaime Hernandez and who better else to write this petition and ask for help than the man himself... Hello, my name is Jaime Hernandez and I’m currently incarcerated at Danville C.C. I was convicted of murder in 2001 and have been incarcerated for 20 years now with 5 years remaining. I'm filing clemency soon and thought setting up this petition would be an efficient way of gathering additional support. Here’s a little bit of what I’ve been doing for the past 20 years. I'm currently employed in the graphic design dept. in the I.C.I (Illinois Correctional Industry) designing shirts for local businesses and other foundations, we design and print out decals for many businesses, regular customers, and the Illinois State Police vehicles. I've had many jobs throughout my sentence and not once have I ever been fired, something I’m very proud of. I graduated college and earned my Associate's Degree and have taken several self-help classes such as Anger Management and Drug Education...to name a few. I'm also involved in the L.T.S dept. when needed and help referee sporting events and other tournaments. There’s nothing more prison can teach me! I'm ready for my second chance at life, a second chance at being a father, and a second chance at being a good citizen. I’m SOOO far from the teenager I was when arrested. I'll be 40 years old in July, I couldn't be more grown and mature than I am now. I truly have many regrets but all I can do is try to be the best man I can and with your support, I can possibly be that better man sooner. Thank you for your time and I appreciate your support...

Tell Gray Television to grant a co-copyright to help me fight YouTube.
My beautiful daughter Alison, a journalist for WDBJ7 in Roanoke, VA was murdered on live television in 2015. For years now, I have been fighting Google to remove the video of her murder from YouTube. Google, along with Facebook and Instagram are protected from any liability thanks to a law called Section 230 for which the only exception is for copyright violation. I appeared on 60 Minutes on January 3rd and described how my life has been affected by Google's ongoing injurious practice. As I said in my interview, Google's original motto was "Don't be evil". Now, they are the personification of just that. Equally as immoral is Gray Television, a media conglomerate with major network affiliates across the country. In late 2015 Gray purchased WDBJ and now owns the copyright to that infamous video. My legal team at Georgetown University Law has asked Gray repeatedly for co-copyright use that would enable us to sue Google for damages. A co-copyright agreement would in no way subject Gray to any legal liability. We cannot legally compelled them, only ask that they do the right thing. Until 230 is repealed, it's our only recourse to hold Google accountable. Sadly, Gray repeatedly either refuses or ignores our pleas to grant this request, cynically offering only a worthless usage license--useful only if we wanted to re-broadcast Alison's murder. As pernicious as Google is, Gray is worse. I seek your help and ask that you beseech Gray to do the decent thing and provide me the means to bring a modicum of justice to these sociopaths who endanger lives and democracy while monetizing murder videos. Thanks for your help! Andy Parker

Make Wisconsin safe. Reinstate the death penalty for heinious crimes.
Wisconsin needs to reinstate the death penalty. As citizens with proud human hearts and moral principles we share a sense of responsibility to the safety of our communities. Especially helpless children. Horrific murders of innocent people and babies continues to happen. Sentences of prison time with the possibility of parole are not enough to stop criminals. February 17, 2020, 3-year-old and 5-year-old siblings Danielle and William Beyer were murdered in Kaukauna, Wi. Days earlier 25-year-old Amarah Banks and her children 5-year-old Zaniya Ivery, and 4-year-old Camaria Banks were strangled in Milwaukee, Wi. Their killer Arzel Ivery fled to Tennessee where he confessed the murders to his father. He was granted $750,000 bail on February 21, 2020. We feel the need for change in Wisconsin Laws with Capital Punishment is immediate. Gilbert Grant was a 2-year-old baby found dead with large bruises over his entire body, internal bleeding, and injuries to his organs in Manitowoc County, Wi. One of his abusers Dave Heiden admitted to abusing him for months even gagging him and making him eat his own vomit. February 27, 2020, David Heiden was sentenced to life in prison with the possiblity of parole in 25 years. In 1853 Capital Punishment was abolished in Wisconsin. It is now 2020 and we the voter’s of Wisconsin believe reinstating the death penalty is necessary to protect people. We believe having the death penalty for capital offenses will have a deterrent effect that will save innocent lives. By signing this petition the people of Wisconsin agree we want the death penalty reserved for only the most horrific crimes like rape, extreme child abuse, and murder. We acknowledge the financial burdens on the state with the drawn out appeals process and invite reforms to the state’s appeal system to remove this expense hindrance. We want killers to be stopped in their tracks. End the evil. End the fear. End the avoidable horrors.

Please Liberate Omar So We Can Start a Family!
My husband Alan Omar Abarca was sentenced to a 25 to life sentence at the age of 18 for a Murder he didn't commit. There was witness tampering, threats against his family and lies told in order for him to take the blame for this crime. Because apparently Somebody had to pay for this crime. Now the real guilty party is another young man who was murdered six months after the original murder. A life for a life, this debt has already been paid. Due to the witness tampering by the Los Angeles County police department, who blamed my husband and pointed the finger at him as the suspected guilty party, the female witnesses listened to the cops and easily picked my husband out of a lineup. The District Attorney threatened to go after my husband's brother and his girlfriend who was pregnant with their first child. They said if not you then, you and them, then you'll have 3 lifers in the family. His lawyer who was paid to defend him, lied to him when he said that his mother told him to accept the 25 to life that the DA offered. They promised that if they went to trial he would lose and end up with 50 to life. My husband was 18, fresh out of YA, innocent of this crime but he couldn't stand the idea of his niece born in prison.

Juvenile's Voices Matter 2- Free Keith Brown
Meet Keith Brown, a youthful offender that was sentenced to life with parole at the age of 16 for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Let me say this again, a youthful offender that was sentenced to life for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (no one died). At this time, the juvenile court system recommended that Keith stay in the juvenile system and he was never certified as an adult, but the system failed him and rushed him to trial and he was tried as an adult. Keith has served 22 years in the Department of Corrections in Oklahoma. During his incarceration, Keith has taken numerous programs offered by DOC as well as saved lives of correctional officers and fellow inmates during a gas explosion at Lawton Correctional Facility. Keith has filed numerous Post Conviction Reliefs to have his sentenced modified and has been denied each time. Keith has also been denied several commutations as well as parole. Keith is very remorseful for the crimes he committed at the age of 16. He does not deny the crime he committed. Keith is no longer that child he was in 1999 when he committed the crimes he did. He has grown into a man that has learned from his past and looks forward to a bright future. Family and friends of Keith Brown feel its time!!! Keith is deserving of a second chance and forgiveness. He has overcome so many obstacles while being incarcerated. He is a man of strong faith and has a clear behavior record. Keith has a loving and supportive family and community waiting to help him once he is released. Please join us in petitioning the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board as well as Governor Kevin Stitt of the State of Oklahoma to release Keith from this injustice.
