Negligent Doctors In Nevada Butchering People, while the laws protect them
Hello my name is Panchitta Crespo. In March 2013 I had Fusion Thoracic surgery of the T7-T8 spine by apparently the top Spine & Neurosurgeon in Nevada. In order to do the surgery the doctor explained to me the only risk was death because the surgery is not performed often. The doctor also explained that their were only two entry point options to conduct the surgery. One was to open the entire chest wall and have to go through all the vital organs. The other was to enter from the side in my back. They had to remove part of my rib (which was not explained prior to surgery) and deflate my left lung (which was not explained prior to surgery). I was actually happy to finally be almost out of back pain if the surgery was a success. But it wasn't. I knew something wasn't right three months into recovery because I was immediately placed on oxygen. I went to the doctor and he said my surgery was a evasive one and I needed to allow more time to recover then the estimated (doctor prediction) three months. Then I went to see a lawyer, who refused the case and told me to allow more time to heal. What I didn't know was that lawyer had ties to the doctor. Here I was 36 years old, unable to breath, take a deep breath, laugh, sleep, or sleep on my left side. That following October 2013, I went to the restroom and lost feeling in my legs when I stood up. I fell and tore the ligaments in my right ankle and broke the calcaneous bone. The orthopedic surgeon said I had nerve damage in my legs from the back surgery. Then I was recommended by one of his doctors to see another great Neurosurgeon that happen to work at the same place with the previous doctor but was told he was different and would fix any mistakes the other doctor made. I still never had my ankle surgery because my back pain is more extensive pain then my ankle. So I went to see the new doctor and he viewed the surgery reports, xrays, MRI's, CT scans and my body itself. He saw that there was a pocket of fluid still there in my lung area which showed a lump, then he felt where my rib was bothering me, which was under my breast bone around to my back where my spine is at. He said I had intercostal nerve damage. He said this could be easily fixed by cutting part of the nerve so it will cause me to feel numbness in the area where my pain was. He assured me that all my pain would be over soon. Well I went in for his surgery August 2014. He said he was only going to cut one nerve right before in went into the operating room. When I was in recovery he told me that they drilled a hole in my sixth rib, shaved my fifth rib, cut some muscle and then cut two nerves instead of one. Not even 8hrs after surgery I was in the hospital bed stuck in a slump (bed ditch), I tried to scoot over to the left and ALL my ribs cracked on my left side causing me to scream in extreme pain. The nurses ran in but wanted to see if I tore my stitches and staples but as they tried to turn me on my side, my ribs cracked even more. I continued to scream and pray in Arabic. Then the nurses would not get me medical attention until the morning after they called the doctors. The surgeon got a CT scan and then asked did I want to go home, not even caring about my new condition. The primary doctor care doctor in charge of me ordered a xray and they both found that my ribs were now fractured. The primary care doctor placed me in a rehabilitation center for a few weeks. I couldn't walk (sometimes still can't), bathe myself (need assistance now), use the restroom by myself, feed myself, twist, turn, bend, and my breathing was worse and worse of all I lost my memory. I underwent physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy for several weeks. I was released because of insurance reasons. I went back to the surgeon and got a new CT scan done and the surgeon said my ribs was worse then before and needed immediate attention of a new surgery to put a new plate on my 5th, 6th & 7th ribs. I had no choice but to go through with it in November 2014 because of the pain I was still in. Well as of June 2015 I had to get a Neurostimulator implanted inside me because pain medications was not working and based on the newest CT scan, my screws in my ribs are loose and that is one of the reasons why I'm still in pain and jot healing. I've gone to see several lawyers and all said I have a case but will not help me based on having a conflict of interest and how the laws are set up. The law states that the patient has a year to file a case against a doctor. The problem is finding a doctor that will go against another doctor without jeopardizing his chances of receiving a referral and his reputation not be ruined in the medical community. I was told this information by a lawyer. I have written the state reps, governor, congress and everyone states I have to go through other people first. There is a chain of command . Each person forwarded my letter and did nothing to help me. Can you all please sign this petition to change this law in Nevada to get people like me a chance to not have their lives ruined by doctors like this. In the beginning i only had back pain and asthma. Now i have serious blood pressure problems, peripheral never damage, intercostal nerve damage, memory loss, edema, hypoxemia, osteoporosis, seizures, depression, anxiety. I cannot work anymore and I was a senior in college for Criminal Justice which I now can't pursue because I can barely get out of bed or help my kids or afford to put them in activities such as sports or dance like they was in before I became disabled by these doctors. Now it is 2017 and I have just had my 9th surgery. Four of my surgeries I've been sliced wide open and 5 of them I've had nerve blocks and epidural pain injections that did not help me one bit. I am on extensive pain medication but due to FDA regulations I cannot get enough to take away my pain at all. I need more then what they give me. I am not a drug addict but I do need more help. I also would like for these doctors licenses revoked and for them to at least help with my living arrangements. I know no money can take away my pain but at lease Ill be comforted that my children are cared for. Due to their negligence I am unable to pay for my children's education as well as provide for them in my home. I do not receive any assistance from the government and because of them I am on 22 medications that I have to pay for because medicare does not pay part D. I have to pay the copay for the insurance as well as the copays in the pharmacy for each medication. Please help me change the law. The doctors responsible for my disability are Dr. Stuart Kaplan and Dr. William Smith. Please help me stop them from hurting others.

Tell Fox News You are Sick of Shepard Smith's Toxic & Hateful Anti-Trump Reporting!
Shepard Smith goes beyond merely being another liberal commentator/journalist/anchor/reporter on Fox News Channel. There are several of them, and that's NOT the issue. Mr. Smith infuses his show with a demonstrably hateful, contemptuous, and toxic anti-Trump tone, and his "reporting" often sounds like Democrat talking point propaganda. He comes across as having a vendetta against any policy or viewpoint that is right-of-center. He seems to stack his show with guest that either agree with him already or are unwilling to stand up to him. This is NOT "fair and balanced". REMEMBER, HIS PROGRAM IS IN A TIME-SLOT FOR HARD NEWS, NOT OPINIONATED JOURNALISM! If he wants to behave this way, let him become a commentator on a show in an opinionated-journalism timeslot. We do NOT demand that every single personality on Fox News be "pro-Trump" or "conservative" or even "Republican". Yet, we do not want them to grandstand and make fools of themselves in order to advance their personal agenda, like Mr. Smith did when attempting to embarrass President Bush in 2005 during Hurricane Katrina, with his on-air force-crying on and expressions of rage at the government in accordance with the Democrat agenda to undermine the President. (He embarrassed himself, not to digress.) That was undignified and beneath Fox News, and many of us turned off FNC coverage when he was on. We don't care if Shep disagrees with something President Trump is doing, but we're tired of his anger-filled and hateful-sounding tone, and we want him to have strong guests on who disagree with his assessments if he is going to pretend to report hard news during that time-slot. We want him to stop coming across as having an agenda to undermine President Trump and almost anything right-of-center. If he cannot meet these reasonable demands (since he is an anchor in a hard-news timeslot), then we ask that Fox News Channel instead make him either a commentator or a reporter on an opinionated journalism program. Thank you.

Protect women at Fox News by pulling ads from Bill O'Reilly show The O'Reilly Factor
The New York Times reported that five women were harassed and these victims had to agree not to file lawsuits or speak publicly about allegations. The revelations were the latest after cable network’s CEO and chairman Roger Ailes stepped down amidst similar claims. For the last 20 years, Bill O'Reilly's show The O'Reilly Factor has been Fox News's top show which generates billions of dollars in revenue for 21st Century Fox. Fox News has repeatedly stood by as he has sexual harassed and inappropriately behaved around several victims. We are asking these companies that belive in family values to pull their advertising from the show.

A Day Without Trump
Since Donald Trump ran for office in 2016, the news media has revolved their content around him. While it is important that Americans stay in the know about what the Trump Administration is doing and trying to accomplish, it can be overwhelming to see these headlines everyday. In an effort to give the American people a break (and attack Trump's ego), I propose "A Day Without Trump". This would entail leaving Donald Trump and his administration out of the news for a full 24 hours. The day would take place on January 19th, 2018, which is the one year anniversary of his inauguration.

Stop Making Shooters Famous
We have sociopaths with guns and a death wish that want to be remembered for how they died: by taking as many innocent lives as possible. They know their name and picture will appear on every news channel for weeks, and they will be remembered forever. This provides incentive for mentally ill people to commit mass murder. The more you kill, the more famous you'll be. Let's stop giving these people what they want. Let's send a message that they will receive NO FAME and NO RECOGNITION for what they've done. They will never be famous. No one will remember them. Let's encourage every news station to pledge that they will NEVER release names, photos, or details of these murderers. The goal is to discourage these mentally ill people from wanting to make a name for themselves and become famous by committing mass murder. The hope is that it'll result in fewer occurrences of mass killings.

Dress Codes are humiliating objectifying, and sexualizing girls with the school dress code
HEY! Do I have your attention? OR do I need to show my bra straps or midriff to get that? I am a 14 year old student in my 9th grade year. I want to send a wake up call to the school boards all over the United States. It is time for a change! #letsmovemountains We are TIRED of missing out on valuable education because of the dress code! We are SICK of being objectified by unequally enforced dress codes! News alert, your dress code is perpetuating rape culture and oppressive objectification towards women. It’s time for change. The black, white, and grey areas of the dress codes are not even equally enforced within the schools. Some girls can’t wear cool shorts and tank tops in extreme heat without facing immediate detention, yet cheerleaders can wear uniforms that violate the dress code. Boys are allowed to run around the track, or even the parking lot during school hours with NO shirt on, but girls can’t show a shoulder blade? Men are rarely told that their arms, legs, stomachs, backs, shoulders… (their whole body?!) are a problem… a distraction. They are most often seen as human beings and not objects. Yet, EVERY time a handbook with these dress codes is handed out, every assembly to talk about what we cannot wear that takes time away from our classroom, every single day in our schools we are teaching girls that their bodies are something to be ashamed of. The dress codes girls face in our daily life are promoting an oppressive objectification towards women. Each time a girl is pulled away from her education because of the clothes they wear or the color of their hair, you are ROBBING her of education. You are HUMILIATING her in front of her peers. You are SHAMING her. You are SEXUALIZING a young woman and encouraging others to do so, too. This needs to stop now. Instead, take the time to teach the BOYS that girls are not objects. And while you're at it, teach the girls that they are not objects and have nothing to be ashamed of in an effort to remove some of the pressure society has placed where it doesn't belong. A woman should never have to cover parts of her body based on a man not being able to control his thoughts, and more importantly, his actions. According to a study by the American Association of University Women, in 2000, of the 2,064 students surveyed, 83% of girls said they had been sexually harassed at school and 38% said they were sexually harassed by teachers or employees (Hostile Hallways, 2001). Only 10% reported their harassment. Do you think this is because they were wearing tank tops? Maybe because their shorts were too short? No, it’s because all through growing up, boys get the excuse that boys will be boys and girls are faced with dress codes that teach them that if they are objectified, if they are harassed, and even if they are assaulted, it was because of something they did. Is this the world we want to create for the future? We are collecting signatures to show you that we want to create a change that gives all students a better education experience. We want to CHANGE the way girls and women are viewed as distractions. We just want an equal opportunity for education. “Hostile Hallways”. American Association of University Women. 2001.

Petition to Motel 6, Jim Amorosia
Motel 6 Publicly Apologize for Shooting in Atlanta
http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/motel-shooting-ends-with-3-car-wreck-injuries http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/local-couple-thieves-steal-car-source-of-income-at-motel Last summer a mold issue forced us from our home into a pet friendly hotel, Motel 6. In August 2016, days before we celebrated our 1st year of marriage hotel guests that had just been evicted from the property, stole our vehicle with everything inside. Fox 5 Atlanta aired that story because it took away our entire honest working income. After, Fox 5 aired the story a Holly Springs, Ga councilman donated a van so we could immediately start working again. Additionally, some viewers donated about 4 weeks worth of hotel reservations to help us get back on our feet. Motel 6 in Norcross stole reservations and told us to leave the property. After calling corporate Motel6 to complain and ask for help with the illegal actions of the Norcross property, they informed us to move to a corporate owned location so they could compensate us for our mistreatment and refund the stolen money. We moved to the Motel 6 on Lawrenceville Hwy in Tucker, Georgia (Metro Atlanta) on August 31, 2016, David's birthday. Corporate Motel 6 never kept their promises on compensation for everything that we've been through, nor any compensation for all our items that were stolen. 26 days past and on the morning of September 26, 2016, the unthinkable happens. We left the property around 11:45, in the morning to fill the car with gas and to grab some breakfast. We returned to the property and parked in our usual parking spot. Minutes later we see a person in a dark heavy coat waving a gun at our car while climbing into a Ford Expedition parked in the spot directly behind us. The next thing we know, the Expedition is reversing and slams into us from behind, with the gunman still half way hanging out the passenger side of the car. After the impact the gunman got out and fired multiple shots. At least 7 bullets or more hit our van. 1 bullet grazed Ricky in the back. While Ricky threw the car in reverse, he pressed the pedal to the floor, pushing the Expedition out the way and sending our van into a S-shape, while the bullets were stilling hitting the car. We crashed into two other parked cars. We later found out from the detective that we had absolutely nothing to do with the incident and that it was a case of mistaken identity. We later discovered that same week that the Motel 6 stole almost $400 dollars from our personal bank account, stealing all of our savings. There are some serious safety issues and concerns at Motel 6 properties, there was no security at the time and the Motel manager stated those same guys were shooting in the parking lot the night before and did absolutely nothing to have them barred from the property, which resulted in Ricky Johnson and David Wells almost losing their lives over an incident that could've been prevented. We want the location closed. Security checks when vehicles enter. Visible armed security guards at all times since there is danger on their properties. We demand an apology from the CEO Jim Amorosia on Fox 5 News (Reporter Marissa Mitchell) to Ricky Johnson, David Wells and the community that supported.
