Petition to Robert Burton

Help Officer Snyder clear his name and reputation

  Justice for Officer Rick Snyder Help Officer Richard Snyder, United States Marine, clear his name and reputation as a respectable and honorable former police officer for the Boro of Medford Lakes Police Department from 1996-1998. Officer Snyder, living his life- long dream of being in law enforcement, was forced to resign as a patrolman after being advised by his on call supervisor on what to tell the victim in a domestic violence case. Officer Snyder gave the victim the supervisors given direction. The information was later found to be inappropriate and after that same supervisor was questioned for his actions, the supervisor told investigators from the Burlington County prosecutors office that he never advised  Officer Snyder what to tell the victim and even though he had a Medford Township patrolman standing in the victims living room when he made the call to said supervisor, it still resulted in a politically based smear campaign and all blame in the matter was placed on Officer Snyder.  Officer Snyder was then harassed every day and ultimately threatened with termination if he did not resign. All legal attempts at the time were voided by the fact that his Chief at the time had re typed his resignation letter, stating that he would not hold the Boro of Medford Lakes responsible for any future legal action. This was only found out when attempts to file charges with the prosecutors office and Attorney Generals office were also deemed unfounded. Now after 18 years of relentless pursuit of retribution, seeking unanswered guidance from political figures including Governors and Senators, Snyder’s recently retired; Medford Lakes Boro Chief of police, who was Officer Snyder’s direct supervisor and a Corporal at the time the events took place has now come to his defense. Snyder lost the opportunity to partake in the Police family ritual of the pinning of the badge ceremony for his brother and later his eldest son at their police academy graduations, lost his potential salary, pension and his self esteem. Let’s help him regain his direction and self-worth. Family and Friends Please Flood the Boro Managers phone or mail with Calls or letters of Support for Officer Snyder's Justice. You can get more info and follow this story on Snyder's FB page @SNYDER3707.. PLEASE SEND ANY SUGGESTIONS OR IDEAS TO HELP MAKE THIS PETITION KEEP MOVING FORWARD, PLEASE AND THANKS AGAIN !!!!!

Petition to COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS, Commandont of the Marine Corps., Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Award Tray Nixon as an Honorary Marine

Tray Nixon is a local 24-year-old who has been diagnosed and has lived with cerebral palsy the entirety of his life.  Additionally, Tray has struggled with symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in regard to child hood trauma he experienced during several facets of his life.  Through all of this, Tray's one and only passion that has kept him fighting against his debilitating physical disorder and his anxiety inducing mental disorder are his desires to serve as a United States marine in the corps.  So much so, that Tray has written several presidents, local military affiliates, and a plethora of other contacts with this specific desire to enlist and, in any way he can, serve his country.  Tray has attempted to serve in other ways as a civilian, such as reaching out to the United States Department of Veteran Affairs in hopes to be part and serve as inspiration and help in any capacity, specifically the Wounded Warrior project.  However, time and time again, Tray has been notified that, due to his physical disabilities, he is unable to do so.  However, despite countless setbacks, Tray continues to adapt and overcome, persevering in his passion for the military philosophy and code of conduct and adhering himself the standards that all marines hold themselves accountable to.  This petition is solely geared toward one purpose and one purpose only, to help Tray Nixon become an Honorary Marine, a gift that, if bestowed upon him, would serve to lift his spirits and help him in his continuing struggle to ward off anxiety, depression, stress, and continue to battle the unending debilitation of his diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy.  However, in order for Tray to be awarded this title, the Commandant of the Marine Corps must approve it.  I truly feel that Tray has endured as much, if not more hardship, than any of those he names as brothers, his fellow Marines.  Thus, for his dedication to the corps and the cause, he deserves to at least be considered to be given the title of an honorary marine and earn the right to be named among the best fighting force in the world. By signing this petition, you would be helping to bring attention to the Commandant, General Robert B. Neller, in the hopes he is kind enough to approve Tray with this award.
