GRANT CLEMENCY TO OUR SON EDWIN RUBIS - 40 YEARS FOR MARIJUANA IS NOT JUSTICE

Our son, Edwin Rubis, is serving a federal sentence of 40 years for a non-violent marijuana offense. [www.marijuanaliferproject.org/federal-prisoner-edwin-rubis-is-serving-life-for-marijuana/ At age 29, our son, while battling drug addiction, associated himself with drug couriers, and was charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana. After his arrest, his court-appointed attorney advised him, along with us, that he needed to provide information on others in the drug trade. Edwin could not provide such information. Therefore, he was quickly deemed "uncooperative", and the judge gave him a harsh sentence - 40 years.Edwin has been away from us for the last 19 years. During the course of time, we have adamantly petitioned, and at times cried, for his early release, at every level of the court system. Sadly to say, we continue to struggle, missing him, with no positive resolution to obtain his freedom. Edwin's children need him. We need him. Our son is not a terrorist, a rapist, a gang member, nor a violent individual to continually be kept in prison for decades for distributing marijuana. While imprisoned, Edwin has taken diligent steps to better himself. He has achieved numerous rehabilitation programs from the psychology and religious departments. He has graduated from college with a degree in Religious Education; and he is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Counseling and Therapist Certification. In addition, he serves as a mentor to others, under the supervision of the head chaplain. He is also working as a G.E.D. and E.S.L. tutor in the education department, at his present institution of confinement, helping others further their education. In addition, Edwin also finished a 2 year dental apprenticeship from The Department of Labor, and worked as a dental assistant for the last 7 years in the medical department.We love our son, [uncle, father, and brother]. We wish for him to receive another chance at life. But our dream for him to be reunited with us, can not be accomplished without your full support. Please help us obtain our son's freedom by signing this petition urging President Donald Trump to grant our son clemency or a pardon. Edwin is a changed man. He has been fully rehabilitated and deserves a second chance at life. Sincerely, Maria Roque - and - Family.

Petition for Terrell " Ralo" Davis to receive consideration of bond.

Terrell Davis aka Rapper (Ralo) was arrested on April 15, 2018 for Possession of Marijuana w/ the intent to distribute and has been detained in Federal custody since that date as Multiple bonds have been denied. The government has stated that in their opinion Mr.Davis is a threat to the community. We as a community love Mr. Davis , and do not agree with the government. Mr.Davis (Ralo) is successfully fulfilling his career in the music industry . Famerica records employs dozens of people and provides opportunities for growth and talented individuals in the community. He has performed hundreds of sold out shows , sold thousands of albums , and accomplished millions of streams which has allowed him to earn millions in legitimate funds from the entertainment industry. He is a big help to many , gives back to his home in the west end and other communities. Mr. Davis civic and charitable work is extensive as he has funded funerals for the less fortunate, sponsored Turkey Drives for the holidays, sponsored many back to school activities for kids and provided school supplies. It’s obvious that Mr.Davis is being selectively prosecuted and denied bond in prejudice. We as a society believe Mr.Davis deserves a bond, even if he’s released on a strict bond ; ankle monitor, half way house or any program / classes or stipulations given. He is an asset to the community and the city of Atlanta and has never been a threat .
