Petition to Charles J. Brown
Justice for Duke
Message from Lisa Brooks, the dog mom of Duke, who was shot and killed on his own property by an Ocoee Police Officer: "I don’t often share on Facebook. So please forgive me that I do so now only to share some sad news. Four years ago, Charlie and I moved to our new home in Ocoee, with a lakefront lot across the street where we could store our boat on the water. The road our home faces is a busy street, so to protect our dogs, we had the entire yard fenced and gated. Early afternoon this past Monday, an Ocoee police officer came to our home, opened and walked through our front gate, then began walking up our driveway towards our front door. Hearing a noise, our sweet, 11 year-old dog, Duke, ran out of his doggy door to greet his new “friend.” The police officer pulled out his gun and shot him in the head. Even as Charlie was standing in the doorway, the officer fired his weapon, killing our best friend. Shortly after, at least 8 more police officers showed up at our house, a crime scene unit, and a lieutenant to “investigate.” They offered to call animal control to come get Duke. Two hours later, animal control showed up. They asked some questions. “Did it bite anybody?” No…HE was just at HIS home in HIS fenced yard where he was supposed to be safe. We watched as they picked Duke up by the legs, put him in a plastic bag and loaded him into their truck. We were then asked to pay them $15 for the service they were providing of taking him away. Twenty minutes later, the remaining police officer on site got special permission from dispatch to pay the fee on our behalf. Thanks so much. I watched as they drove away and Charlie got out the hose to wash away the blood. I still stare at the spot in our yard where he died. The lieutenant in charge gave us his business card with a case number and we were told that the incident would be investigated due to the officer firing his weapon, that the officer would be put on administrative leave during the investigation, and that a police report should be available within 48 hours. We waited a day and then called the number on the business card for an update on the investigation. “Your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please check the number and dial again.” We called the police department and put in his extension. “That is not a valid number.” We had no way to reach the lieutenant, except to call the administration desk, leave a message and wait for a call back. When we received a call, we were informed that the officer that killed our dog was still working and not on leave. On Friday when we called again, 96 hours after Duke was killed, we were told the police report was still not “complete”. However, we managed to get a preliminary copy. The offense identified in the report was “Suspicious Vehicle.” The officer had come to our house in the first place to inquire about our boat which was covered, anchored and properly registered on our lakefront. There was no mention of the officer firing his weapon or that he killed our dog. The fact that this preliminary report completely omits the actual crime does not leave us with much hope that the report will be factual or tell the complete truth. For those of you that have animals, you will understand that Duke was a part of our family. And to Davin, Duke was his best buddy. Davin was inside our home when the shooting occurred, eating his lunch and startled by a gunshot, just 15 feet from his front door. “Duke” was his first word. It came out more like “Duu!”, but what he was saying was unmistakable when accompanied by a feverish pointing to Duke. Many of you have met Duke and know what a gentle and friendly dog he was. He was never a threat to anyone and his greatest offense was giving too may “kisses.” Duke would lie patiently through our lessons teaching Davin to always “pet gently.” Even when petting gently sometimes involved the pulling of hair and tail, Davin received nothing but sloppy dog kisses from Duke. Some people may read this and think, “It was just a dog.” Although he was much more than that to us, the reason I share our story is bigger. We are scared and we are worried. We are scared that a police man walked through the gate of our home and inflicted this violence at our front door for no good reason. We are scared that pulling his gun and using deadly force was his first course of action when many others could have and should have been used. We are scared because he showed no remorse. We are worried because this officer was back at work right after the incident. We are worried because it doesn’t appear that he will receive any repercussions from his actions or additional/corrective training. We are worried because the next time this officer feels “threatened” he may very well take the same action and it may not be a dog that suffers. Charlie and I thank you for reading our story. We understand we live in world where gun violence is a serious issue and hope you will share this to spread awareness that will initiate change and hopefully prevent something like this happening in the future. Rest in Peace, Duu <3" We're asking for the following:* Appropriate action be taken against the officers for reckless discharge of their weapon.* Ocoee PD immediately implement a Use of Force continuum applying to pet encounters that prioritizes de-escalation, to include mandatory HANDS-ON canine encounter training, be equipped with taser or batons, and exhaust all reasonable means in defusing situations before resorting to lethal force.* Ocoee PD to implement a policy requiring officers to intervene if they witness improper use of force by their colleagues, and to report it to their supervisor and internal affairs.

Provide benefits for police officers disabled in the line of duty
The Public Safety Officers’ Benefits (PSOB) program through the department of justice currently allows for payment of a one-time benefit to the survivors of officers killed in the line of duty. The benefit also applies to officers who are 100% disabled in the line of duty and rendered completely unable to work. Benefits covering college tuition are also extended to the survivors of a deceased officer and the dependents of a disabled officer. However, this does nothing to assist officers who are deemed disabled in the eyes of their department, but do not qualify for 100% disability. I suffered a severe back injury and damage to my sciatic nerve when a fleeing suspect rammed my patrol car. I am unable to serve as a police officer anymore. That does not mean that I will never be able to work again in a different capacity. But I need help. So do many other forgotten disabled officers. As the system currently stands, a disabled police officer would provide better financial support for their family if they were to succumb to their injury, or even commit suicide. We need encouragement, assistance, purpose, and a reason to live. Under the duress of a line of duty disability and the cumulating effects of the stress of the job, the men and women who sacrifice their health in the protection of others do not need financial justification for our own death. We need help getting back on our feet and going back to work. Instead, I propose the following solution: 1. Amend the PSOB program to offer payment to first responders who are forced into retirement due to a line of duty disability regardless of the percentage of disability that their department deemed necessary for retirement. 2. Remove the one year time limit on filing a claim under the PSOB system. Many officers do not accept the fact that they need assistance until several years after their incident. 3. Adjust the College Assistance benefit to include the disabled officer as an option of occupational retraining. Help us go back to school. 4. For officers who do not reach the term of service needed for Student Loan Forgiveness, make line of duty disabilities a qualifying event that will fulfill the requirements to forgive any and all federal student loans acquired prior to the line of duty incident. These simple changes will reduce the stress associated with such a critical life changing incident, and provide help to those of us who are often too proud to ask for it. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. Myself and thousands of other officers who have made physical sacrifices feel that there is nowhere else to turn for help.
Petition to David E. Yancey, M. Keith Hodges
Make the killing/injuring of a police animal in VA the same as killing/injuring an officer
Vader's Law. In Memory of VSP K-9 Vader. Code of Virginia Section § 18.2-144.1. Prohibition against killing or injuring police animals; penalty. This petition is specifically seeking support that the penalty for such crimes referenced above be changed to reflect the same magnitude and weight as killing any sworn law enforcement officer. Precedent is set for this with several states, including Florida. The federal government recognizes the difference between such law enforcement animals and equipment in the Federal Law Enforcement Protection Act. The loss of a police K-9 is truly the loss of an officer. Despite the law's lacking, the officers who serve us each day give the dog the same dignity and final acts of respect they would give a fallen sworn human. The amount of public support for such an amendment is evident in the outpouring each time one of these four legged officers is killed. Please join us in showing support for this legislation which we hope will be proposed in 2019.
Petition to Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, Madison Common Council, Chief of Police Michael Koval
Support Madison Police Department - Stop the Public Attacks
We support police chief, Mike Koval and the professional men and women of the Madison Police Department. Our chief is caring, respectful, smart, transparent, consistently striking the perfect balance between respecting our civil liberties and keeping us safe. His force is a national model. These officers do the gritty work most of us don’t have the stomach for. Despite the current climate of disdain for law enforcement, they willingly work with Madison’s various communities, serving as social workers as well as law enforcement officers. Instead of being grateful to Chief Koval and MPD for their service, the bulk of the common council, mayor, and other critics have found it necessary to publicly disparage this elite force. Their actions are causing divisions within the city, adding to mistrust of the police, encouraging unacceptable behavior and thus endangering the safety of its citizens. In light of this, we call for the following: · For the Madison Common Council and Mayor Paul Soglin to refute baseless charges of racism leveled against our police department. These statements only encourage future offenders. · For the city to rescind the $400,000 study of police policies and procedures. · For Alderman Samba Baldeh to apologize for his baseless statement about Chief Koval during a June common council meeting. · For the City of Madison to invest in combating crime and a growing gang problem. · For community leaders to demand individual accountability and personal responsibility from citizens, regardless of age, gender, or race. · Instead of publicly attacking our police, to strive to work closer with them. We live during a time of growing hatred for law enforcement officers, perpetuated by media, and accepted by those unwilling to think critically. The men and women of the Madison Police Department work tirelessly to protect us from the worst society has to offer – and for that we should be celebrating them, not disparaging them.
Petition to Department of Justice, Mayor Bill Faulkner, Prosecutor Dwight Scroggins
Department of Justice Investigation into St Joseph Missouri Police Department..
Calvin Robinson Jr. Calvin Passed away in the early hours of Christmas morning 2015. All his belongings were missing. Additionally his debit card was used for a month following his death. After asking for an investigation into this matter, the family was told the a dead person could not be a victim and they were not going to investigate any further. Still waiting on a response from the Mayor of St Joseph Missouri. Spoke with the Prosecutor and was told that nobody investigates the police. Spoke with the investigator and was told that the family would have to spend some money to find out what happened. The family was not notified by the police of the death of their loved one. Instead a "friend" of the victim notified the family. The same friend who was later determined to have called the police and tell them that the victim had stolen her car. To make matters worse the officer who reconstructed the scene made the following video, seeming to taunt the family.

63y Black Woman Attacked by Andover Mass. Chief of Police Patrick Keefe. Sign for Resign!
November 3, 2018, a little over a year (13 months in fact) after Lt. Chad Cooper and Andover Chief of Police Patrick Keefe nearly broke my back for demanding that I be treated like every other Andover Massachusetts resident and not be smeared, scapegoated, and stereotyped, when I declared a sit-in protest in their so-called public safety building, after they tried to make a monkey out of me for trying to alert them to a so-called "See Something - Say Something" event. This update is to people of all faith, color, race, age, gender, religion, disability, ideology, ethnicity, social economic classification, and national origin. It also matter little where you are in the country, and even if you live overseas. All you need is a desire to make the world a better place, return power to the people, which power has been usurped from them (By the way, did you know that police is not accountable to anyone? I am not referring to the few model police departments - of course. They are too few and far between, plus as a linguist and a former Language Arts teacher, and a professor of Graduate School First and Second Language Acquisition, I can tell you with reasonable certainty that the exceptions do not make the rule. I CAN ALSO TELL YOU FOR A FACT THAT I DO NOT NEED TO RAISE MUCH MONEY. I NEED ABOUT $1,000 TO DEPOSE THE TWO DEFENDANTS AND I ESTIMATE ANOTHER $2,000 TO HIRE AN EXPERT WITNESS - MEDICAL. I WOULD LIKE TO HIRE A POLICE MISCONDUCT EXPERT AND AN INCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION EXPERT (AN ADDITIONAL $4,000) ALL OF WHICH WOULD AMOUNT TO ABOUT $7,000, SINCE I AM DOING ALL OF THE MOTION WORK AND COURT APPEARANCE AND ALSO COVERING ALL MISCELLANEOUS EXPENSES OUT OF MY LIVING MONEY. Injustice to one is injustice to all! MLK. I am fighting for what was done to me, for my 3 children, for all of those who are being victimized, oppressed, repressed, suppressed, murdered, for all of you who live under the system of injustice and discrimination, and more importantly for those who will come after me. We have the right to live in a "free society," and hold the status quo to the promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. YOU CAN MAKE AN ANONYMOUS CONTRIBUTION. IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE CONTRIBUTING ONLINE - EMAIL ME AT: CREATELINKUSA.COM IF YOU PREFER TO MAIL A CHECK. BANK CHECKS ARE FINE SINCE I LIKE ACCOUNTABILITY - BELIEVE IN FULL DISCLOSURE AND ABSOLUTELY DETEST CORRUPTION AND CON-ARTISTRY OF ANY SORT ON THE PART OF INDIVIDUALS - POLITICIANS - BUSINESSES - GOVERNMENT OR ANY INSTITUTIONS. My lawsuit against the 2 Andover policemen (Lt. Chad Cooper and Police Chief Patrick Keefe) who injured me on October 5, 2017 for protesting their venal and racist policing, is in discover (This means that I am in the mist of intensely investigating the case to discover evidence that will be admissible in court. I WOULD NEVER ASK ANYONE FOR CONTRIBUTIONS FOR ANYTHING. IN FACT I NEVER ASKED FOR HELP FROM ANYONE. HOWEVER AFTER TEACHING AT ALL LEVELS OF EDUCATION AND WORKING FOR 2 DEPARTMENTS ON 2 CONTINENTS - STUDYING ON 3 CONTINENTS INCLUDING EUROPE - I AM NOW A RETIRED TEACHER WHO RAISED 3 EXCEPTION CHILDREN ALL THREE OF WHOM HAVE GRADUATED WITH HONOR, ON THE DEAN LIST AND SUMMA CUM LAUDE (A TEACHER'S SALARY IS JUST ENOUGH TO MAKE IT THROUGH EACH MONTH). ALL THEY OF MY CHILDREN ARE DOING WELL. BUT THE DETERIORATION OF ECONOMIC LIFE IN THE US COMBINED WITH STUDENT LOAN (EACH EACH OF COLLEGE COSTS APPROXIMATELY $40,000 WHICH RENDERS SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS IRRELEVANT). I have thousands of dollars in hospital bills, and - a year and a hospital admission later - I am just beginning to be able to sit, lay down, and walk without developing acute pain. What that means is that I need to depose the two defendants in person, send out subpoenas to discover evidence, make copies of hundred of pages of documents, file motions in court, hire expert witnesses in preparation for trial - if the case were to go to trial. All of this also means that I already past the stage of sending out written questions and requests for documents. However, this also means that they can lie in their answers and deflect, which they have done, even though they have to answer them under oath. They have also obfuscated in turning over pertinent documents. After all, rather than using their town attorney, they have hired high-priced and over-paid attorneys from a large firm in Boston. However, I am still holding my own, toe to toe. The thing is that one mistake in prosecuting a lawsuit can prove fatal to the case if it is material. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT I PREVAIL IN THIS CASE FOR THE SAKE OF THOSE WHO CANNOT STAND UP, FIGHT THE POLICE STATE AND PRISON INDUSTRIAL SYSTEM AND SPEAK ON THEIR OWN BEHALVES. Money is not all that one needs to prevail in litigation. I also need everyone to sign the petition to force the town to review the misconduct and civil rights violations, and take necessary measures to make sure this type of thing never happens again by implementing reform. I weight 98 pounds and I am in my 60's, with a pre-existing spinal condition. The Defendants, by their own admissions are in their 50's and 40's with male muscular built, law enforcement training, and weight an approximate combined 520 pounds.

ReplyForward READ WHAT HAPPENED HERE When I entered the Andover public safety building on October 5, 2017, and declared that I would remain there until someone speaks with me about the concerns that I had expressed over the phone, I essentially triggered the First Amendment. Subsequently, any action by any police officer to infringe upon my Firs Amendment guarantees, was going to necessarily be unconstitutional, including any attempt to physically remove or arrest me. The bottom line is that if I were to be removed by any means other than due process of law, at that time, such action was bound to collide with the First, Fourth, Fifth, and the Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution. See U.S. Supreme Court Tennessee v. Garner (1985). Police Perversion of the United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights After their racially-driven and unconstitutional arrests, fraudulent use of the civil commitment law, hoax criminal charges and harassment, all failed to deter me from demanding accountability from the Town of Andover and its Police Department and Fire and Rescue Department, a Chief Commander who also should be fired, called the Police Chief when he was off-duty, to come into the police station to handle something such “so-called” Chief Commander should have been able to manage by himself, especially, since I had written down for them two of several ways they could have legally brought my protest to an end: (1) A police officer, or anyone else, for that matter, could have come into the lobby and talk to me. I would have waited if they were busy, and that would have addressed and resolved the reason for my protest in the first place; or (2)They had the means and a dedicated video and audio set up to seek an immediate injunction within the comfort of the building, people like me contribute to pay for. Had they chosen to use that readily available mean, and they prevailed, I would have gone home to appeal any such injunction, but I would waited at home for the Appeals Court’s decision. What is really ironic, and almost Shakespearean, is that they were very likely to get injunctive relief, even on my appeal, in which case, the ruling judge would have framed the parameters for my protest, for not even a judge can tell anyone that they have to stop protesting. How Did a Chief of Police Go so Berserk? The Chief Commander and the Chief of Police did not want to do anything that would fall under the legal jurisdiction of the court. I am holding back on mentioning the names of these individuals for now, out of a sense of deference for the residents of the Town of Andover. I want to afford Andover Town residents the kind of benefits Andover Town officials have intentionally and recklessly denied me.That is a chance to finally do the right thing. I did give this Town and every official, police and otherwise, the benefit of the doubt for 7 years, until I did not. Now, I am re-instating that benefit to them temporarily, to see if they have the capacity to earn it back. They also had the option to make up some false pretense, as they are very good at doing, and had done before, to arrest me. That would have been unconstitutional, but at least, it would not have been the brutal felony assault and battery this unfit Chief of Police and his co-conspiring Commander ended up perpetuating on me. What they did was, rather than taking any of the several legal routes at their fingertips, they chose to scrape the very bottom of their dirty bag of tricks for the last, filthiest, and illegal trick: The illegal use of force, resulting in severe injury to me. The Residents of Any Town Must Be Too Proud for This! No Town deserves a Police Chief who so obviously shows himself or herself to be a possible danger to its residents. There are too many elephants laying around in our police departments, our legislatures, our courts, and in town offices. We all know where they are. Ignoring them will not make them go away. They will simply continue to undermine and compromise the structure and foundation of the rights, privileges, and immunities, the Founding Fathers built into the checks and balances system, and left behind. Those are the best things we have going for us, and the only things that makes America Great in any meaningful way. To allow this particular Police Chief to get away with such reckless act and illegal conduct, along with the violation of well-established rights, would defile the sacrifices of those who have fought to secure life, liberty, and justice for all in this country. These are ideals that we are still trying to achieve. It will take time, even more sacrifices by my many — some famous and others unsung heroes, as well as determination and staying-power to help give birth to, thus contribute to the formation of that more Perfect Union. In order to safeguard the integrity of the Town of Andover, the community at large and the nation must demand accountability from this Police Department and Town officials. Chief Patrick Keefe must be made to resign, be fired, or undergo a mental health evaluation to ensure that, under the right set of circumstances, he will not attack and injure anyone else who is freely and peacefully exercising rights that are guaranteed by the United States Constitution, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Petition to Department of Justice, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, Flint Police Chief Timothy Johnson, Flint City Council
FLINT, MI: Justice for Tatiana Brown and Ashyrinta Clemons
Early on the morning of August 26th, 2017, two 13-year-olds, Tatiana Brown and Ashyrinta Clemons were struck and killed by a maroon colored vehicle heading north on Saginaw St in Flint, MI. The driver fled the scene but later, after police recovered his car, turned himself in. The driver was later released because the City of Flint Police Department was unable to perform a proper investigation in a timely matter “due to understaffing.” The City of Flint, MI, a city of 100,000 residents has just ONE officer that handles traffic accidents (ONE!!) and average response times for priority-one 911 calls (shootings, stabbings, domestic violence) sits at an average of over 58 minutes as of July 2017. Flint Chief of Police Timothy Johnson explained, “we're gonna have to expand the Traffic Bureau, we're gonna have to do some hiring and they're gonna have to give us more police officers," he said. "I don't know where they're gonna get the money from. I don't know what budget they're gonna have to take it from, but we need more Flint Police Officers to be able to service the citizens like we do." To date, the man suspected of running down these two children still walks free. The Flint Police say that it could be 6 MONTHS or more before they're even able to complete an investigation. This is unacceptable. No family should have to suffer from this kind of negligence. The City of Flint, a city that stole the National spotlight over it's water crisis, has not only failed to deliver its residents safe clean drinking water, but has failed to deliver even the most basic level of policing. Please join in demanding expeditious justice for the families of Tatiana Brown and Ashyrinta Clemons and in calling upon Flint City Council to answer for this injustice.
