Petition to Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kılıç
Sign: Justice for Dog with Ears Cut Off for Selfies
In a now-viral image circulating throughout Turkish social media, two young men pose proudly next to a cowering dog with bloody stumps for ears, each man holding what appears to be a dog ear in his hand. According to Turkish news, the pair are suspected to be involved in dogfighting, and were reportedly punishing one of their losing dogs. The Turkish justice system has now let the men off with a fine of just over what is equivalent to $1,000 U.S. dollars. And no jail time. This lax punishment is not acceptable for inflicting such reprehensible harm on an animal. These men's shockingly light sentence is not even close to proportional to the pain and suffering they senselessly inflicted on an innocent animal — let alone the multiple dogs presumably forced to tear each other to shreds in fights staged for human entertainment. Animals are not toys. They are not property. They have thoughts and feelings, as backed up by research demonstrating that dogs are just as sentient as a human child. What’s more, cruelty to animals is irrefutably linked to cruelty to human beings. This incident of grossly inhumane treatment highlights the urgent need for the Turkish government to revisit their animal cruelty laws. Please sign this petition now to call on Turkey's Ambassador to the United States, Serdar Kılıç, to advocate for stronger punishment for animal abuse. Dogs like this deserve justice, and animal torture must be treated like the serious crime that it truly is.

22 Years are Far TOO LONG for Operating a Medical Marijuana Dispensary !
FREE MY DAD!!!
22 Years in Prison are Far TOO LONG for Operating a State-Legal Medical Marijuana Dispensary!!! Over 10 years ago my Dad left me and went to prison for operating a state-legal medical marijuana dispensary in California. He was given a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years plus an additional 1 year 8 months. Today, marijuana is fully legal in 9 states and D.C. and medical marijuana is legal in 29 states -- yet my Dad remains in prison!! I am Jasmine Scarmazzo and I’m 15 years old. I’m writing this petition because I want my Dad to come home from prison and I am asking our compassionate President to grant him sentence commutation. That’s the only way he will be released without serving over twenty years. In California, medical marijuana has been legal since 1996 and there are thousands of medical marijuana dispensaries here. But over the years, many of them were raided and shut down by the federal government. My Dad was an owner of one of these STATE-LEGAL dispensaries but since his conviction, the Department of Justice and Congress have made changes in law and policy that means my Dad would not be arrested if he was operating a medical cannabis dispensary today. My Dad is serving the longest federal prison sentence given to a medical marijuana dispensary operator and the only Medical Marijuana Dispensary Operator who has been convicted of conducting a Continuing Criminal Enterprise (CCE) - a law designed to prosecute Drug Kingpins! Following trial, two jury members recanted their guilty verdicts and gave sworn affidavits to that effect when learning the CCE conviction carried a 20 year Mandatory Minimum Sentence. Today, 29 states and the District of Columbia have medical marijuana laws in place. In December 2015, Congress passed legislation that protects dispensary operators against arrest. Also, beginning in 2013, the Department of Justice stopped prosecuting medical—or even recreational—marijuana providers who are operating under state laws. Things have changed dramatically in the medical and recreational marijuana industries!! And President Trump recently indicated he will support the legalization of marijuana -- finally putting an end to the destructive and wasteful war on marijuana and allowing states to decide. President Trump has also publicly stated his desire to issue more commutations and pardons to individuals who were unfairly treated. Unless he receives a commutation from President Trump, my Dad will have to serve his full 22 year sentence while others currently prosper for doing the same thing he did: operating a state-legal medical marijuana dispensary! My Dad's co-defendant, Ricardo Montes, was granted sentence commutation on January 19, 2017 BUT, inexplicably, my Dad was PASSED OVER by President Obama and was not granted the same relief from his sentence that Mr. Montes was!! That means I will be without him for another decade unless our caring and thoughtful President Trump grants him his freedom!! I am already a sophomore in high school and he has not been here to see me grow up. Please sign my petition and ask our President to grant my Dad sentence commutation. Thank you for your support!

Demand the state of Georgia re-open Dj Fickeys case and present to a grand jury
Crime stories with Nancy Grace covering Dj case https://player.fm/series/crime-stories-with-nancy-grace/mans-death-ruled-suicide-by-police-but-the-family-of-dj-fickey-says-evidence-proves-its-homicide Investigation Discovery “ID” show on Dj https://youtu.be/UaV5CCuHh2M Kendall Rae covering djs case https://youtu.be/AHIz8pc_mQg As most are aware, my baby brother Dj "Don" was shot and killed on October 3rd 2016. His death was originally called in as a suicide by the monster that pulled the trigger. Since day one the detectives bungled the investigation and even with hard evidence and many witnesses, a failed polygraph test, the person of interest changing his story of what happened that day many times, 911 telling person of interest that called in the suicide to move the gun, the fact that Dj was texting several people the time he was shot begging to get out of the home as he stated “he was going to end up dead there and that it would save his life”, the fact Dj was right handed but was shot in the left cheek, no forensics testing done what so ever and much, much more that this person killed Dj and in fact was not a suicide This has gone no further then where it stands today. We are asking for support to help with the awareness and to help spread his story so justice can be brought to Dj, his 3 babies as well as family and friends. The day Dj was shot he was sent to GBI crime lab for a “limited” autopsy with the information given to them that this was a self inflicted suicide by shotgun because they had a witness that seen it “Person of interest”. That was the only information sent to the crime lab with my brother. Once he arrived, the medical examiner ruled his death as a suicide based on that information. No gun residue test was ever done on Dj, they wasn’t aware Dj was right handed but was shot in the left cheek at a front to back, left to right and downward angle with a shotgun. Was not aware there was more then the one witness, any of the facts surrounding the shooting the day it occurred. And didn’t care nor ask. Weeks/months into the investigation, it would be changed from a suicide investigation to possible homicide investigation by the lead detective at Walker county due to all the evidence and truth that was coming out. The Walker county sheriffs departments detectives nor coroner was ever in contact with the medical examiner to let her be aware of the changes or updates in the case which lead to cause and manner of death being “written in stone” as suicide by self inflicted gunshot wound to the face. Which was done on oct 5, 2016. The day after Dj was shot/day of autopsy. Once the investigation was handed over to the District attorney, he concluded this as a suicide based on the autopsy findings and considered the case closed. All we have asked from the beginning was for them to present this case in front of a grand jury to let them decide if an arrest or indictment should/could be made. As we know there is significant evidence. We have been ignored, lied to and blew off. I have done whatever I can think of to come up with funds to hire my own Private investigator “Eric Echols” to review this case, do his own interviews as well as present all the evidence to the medical examiner which was never aware of all the evidence and consider relooking at the case and over turning her original ruling. She however will not budge and herself as well as the GBI states they are confident in their original ruling. God knows what we have been through since October 2016 and everything we have done to try and fight for Dj's justice and some form of closure. We appreciate all the help and support given to us in order to get justice for Dj and some closure to us as well as getting a murderer off the streets. We do not want this to happen to another innocent person or for another family to suffer as we are still doing by the hands of this person. I will fight til my last breath to stand up for this and be a voice for the voiceless as right is right and wrong is wrong. I have two social media pages to support the fight for justice for Dj. Please link to my brothers Facebook page as well as twitter so you can read some details in the case as they are all public records. I have information from 2 weeks prior to his murder up until now. We have a wonderful support team as well as professionals helping us in this fight who are confident in this case. But we can always use more. Djs story is gaining a lot of media attention everyday as anyone can see there is a huge injustice being done here. Please help us in getting this taken in front of a grand jury to get a indictment and whatever else needs to be done for justice. Anyone who has read this case can see clearly what it was and can say with 100% certainty that this was not a suicide but in fact a homicide. I am sick and tired of the corruption and cover ups that are going on in this county and it is time someone finally stands up to them and let's them see that they work for the people. To this day, we have yet to get a return phone call from Walker county sheriff Steve Wilson or walker county coroner Dewayne Wilson with any questions or concerns that we have had throughout this time. Please share my brothers story and help us in his fight for justice and support is always appreciated. And thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the thoughts, prayers and support.

Petition to Donald J. Trump, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, USA
Donald Trump please unite Americas 4 great warlords to rescue Asap Rocky.
We need justice for rap artist ASAP Rocky (Rakim Mayers). We want the God Emperor Donald Trump to assemble America's 4 great warlords Rambo, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and battlefield strategist Mcgyver. Here in Sweden we have seen many documentaries of Rambo, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mcgyver saving the world from evil. Their skills in combat taught by the amazing Sensei Steven Seagal in his dojo is what we currently need to rescue Mr Mayers. We think all of this is possible with a battle plan and equipment provided by glorious strategist Mcgyver of America. I hope that people and organisations of influence such as Kanye West, 50 Cent, Kim Kardashian, Fox News, NRA, Wendy Williams and Nascar can convince the God Emperor of America, Donald Trump to aid Sweden on this request and free ASAP Rocky through a stealth mission using americas most prized warmachine "Airwolf". Yes I am talking about the aircraft thats constructed by americas top engineers known as The A Team (John "Hannibal" Smith, Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Bosco "B.A." (Bad Attitude) Baracus and H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock). Asap Rocky deserves freedom and what better way to give him this freedom than from the country that invented it! God bless America.

STOP MODERN DAY SLAVERY
FREE TYRONE CLARK I have spent almost three decades in prison. The war on drugs is just another way to keep modern day slavery going. The laws disguised to clean up the streets has locked myself and many of our youth in a system with no way out and no dream of rehabilitation. In 1991 the “law of the land” was in affect. This law stated that if found guilty of a drug charge the jury is required to correlate time with the amount found in a persons possession. In my case drugs were never found. The prosecutor used a scale of 5/100 Kilograms in order to sway the judge and jury to give me a harsher sentence. I was tried and convicted of a drug charge,sentence to 30 years in prison. In 2005 the law changed and this new change could have helped in my case but the appeals court would not accept my appeal . I filed for a pardon. The pardon made it all the way to the presidents desk. He refused to sign it even though the law had changed in my favor. I have now spent more than 20 extra years in prison. My latest appeal was filed 2015 it has been pending for 4 years. I have now spent 29 years in prison. I went to prison when I was 22 years old I am now 51 . During my time in prison I have lost my Mother, my Father,and many other family members. Although I have lost so much, I still have a strong support group of family and friends. I have 3 adult children that I didn’t have the opportunity to help nurture and grow. I’m not proud of the choices or mistakes I’ve made.These choices have kept me locked up more than half of my life.Now I’m asking for your help.Please sign my petition. My hopes are for the opportunity to do some good in this world. While being locked up I have taken every opportunity available in training and classes to further educate and rehabilitate myself. I am more than ready to get a second chance at life. I have worked hard at becoming the best man that I can be in this situation, and I am a value to society. How many more years of my life should I be expected to give The United States of America toward our MODERN DAY SLAVERY LAWS? This has to change, so I’m committed to fighting for and being a part of this change. Sincerely Tyrone Clark

Remove Sexist, Racist, and Other Abusive Content (Including Abusive Pages, Photos, and Comments)
Pages such as "Women bringing you Sandwiches" and "Keep Ya Pimp Hand Strong" clearly violate Facebook's TOS (See https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards). Both pages "[target] based on gender" and one explicity advocates domestic violence against women. Examples of racist pages include "Lazar Kaganovich" (the sole purpose of which is to attack the USSR official because of his Jewish ethnicity) and "N***as be like" as well as its compatriot "N***as/B****es Be Like." (which is both racist and sexist). Why Facebook refuses to remove these pages is beyond me. Why Facebook also refuses to remove other hateful content (such as abusive photos and comments) is beyond me.
