Ex-San Diego Sheriff-Sexual Predator Victims Demand Justice

A former San Diego County sheriff’s deputy pled guilty Sept 9, to assaulting 16 women while on duty and in uniform, including women who had called the department for help. The women accuse Fischer of hugging or kissing them without consent, groping their bodies and even forcing them to perform oral copulation during incidents between 2015 and 2017 in several communities including Vista, Lakeside, El Cajon and San Marcos. Prosecutors said Fischer would return to victims' homes late at night after the call had been cleared from dispatch records and no other deputies were present. A plea agreement was reached on the day the trial was scheduled to begin. Until his guilty plea, Fischer had repeatedly denied he assaulted women while under the color of authority calling the victims liars and holding a news conference where he stated "These false allegations are extremely hurtful and disheartening". An amended criminal complaint was filed with seven charges against 16 women, far fewer and less severe than the 20 charges the District Attorney's Office had at one point filed against the former deputy; all charges of sexual assault were dropped. The charges included in the plea agreement were four felony counts of assault and battery by an officer, two counts of misdemeanor assault by an officer and one count of misdemeanor false imprisonment. The maximum penalty Fischer is facing is five years behind bars, but the minimum is probation. If the case would have made it to trial and no plea agreement was reached Fischer faced more than 25 years in state prison if convicted on all counts. Sentencing is due to start December 10,2019. Fischer's plea deal could open the door for the ex-deputy to once again serve in law enforcement. When sentenced, If Fischer was granted probation and successfully complete it, he would be able to petition to have his felony convictions reduced to misdemeanors. If the felony convictions are reduced and Fischer does not have to register as a sex offender, there's a chance Fischer could return to law enforcement!!!!!!! As a sworn officer, authority and a badge is something you are honored to have. In return the community invests trust in you and depends on you for protection. What happens when the one who is supposed to provide us with protection has no integrity and we end up needing to be protected from them? Richard Fischer should be held accountable to the highest extent of the law based solely on the fact that he was in a position of authority and used his badge to take advantage of myself and multiple other woman. Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, wives... We should not be fearful of being sexually violated by a law enforcement officer. We cant reverse the plea agreement that has already been put in place, but we can ask Judge Daniel Goldstein to sentence him accordingly. With all the evidence of what he put us through and the fact that his charges have been so dramatically reduced due to the plea agreement he should serve the maximum 5 years in prison and due to the nature of his crimes SEX REGISTRATION SHOULD BE MANDATORY!! Without being required to register as a sex offender we are risking the possibility of this predator being placed back into a position of authority and also showing other predators that all you will be punished with is a slap on the hand. Please help us put Richard Fischer's trail of psychological coercion and sexual assaults on woman to an end,. Thank you

Petition to Donald J. Trump, Donald J. Trump, UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL - JEFF SESSIONS, Donald Trump

NATIONAL ACTION AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY! PROSECUTE POLICE WHO MURDER UNARMED INDIVIDUALS!

INVESTIGATIONS "CASE BY CASE" HAVE NOT AND SHALL NOT REMEDY THE PROBLEM! AS ONE IS BEING INVESTIGATED "HUNDREDS MORE" ARE MOUNTING UP! AND INDEED POLICE BRUTALITY AND MURDER HAS ESCALATED TO THE LEVEL OF NATIONAL PROPORTIONS... THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS ARE BEING "STOPPED & FRISKED" FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER... THE LOSS OF LIFE THAT HAS OCCURRED AT THE HANDS OF POLICE HAS ESCALATED TO WHERE "UNARMED INDIVIDUALS" ARE BEING FIRED UPON AND KILLED... WEEKS AND MONTHS GO BY  WITH "NO EXPLANATION" FOR THESE SHOOTINGS BY THEIR DEPARTMENT! THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL WITHIN THESE STATES HAVE "REFUSED TO ACT" LEAVING ALL ACTION TO BE TAKEN BY THE COMMISSIONER'S OF THESE DEPARTMENTS.  THE COMMISSIONER'S HAVE "JUSTIFIED" THE ACTIONS OF THESE OFFICERS - AND IN MANY CASES "PROMOTED THEM" AFTER THE KILLING OF THESE VICTIMS. THE MECHANISMS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN PLACE HAVE "ALL FAILED" AND THE ESCALATION OF POLICE BRUTALITY IS "EVIDENCE" OF THAT FAILURE. WE HAVE WITNESSED THE CONFESSIONS OF POLICE THEMSELVES WHO HAVE TESTIFIED THAT THEY WERE MADE TO ISSUE SUMMONSES AND "MAKE ARRESTS WITHOUT CAUSE" AND THE SUBSEQUENT "HARASSMENT" WHICH FOLLOWED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THEIR REFUSAL... WE HAVE HEARD TESTIMONY IN COURT HOW THEY INDEED PLANTED NARCOTICS ON INNOCENT VICTIMS SIMPLY TO MEET THE QUOTA REQUIRED CONCERNING AN ARREST!! YET, THOSE INDIVIDUALS REMAIN INCARCERATED FOR THE CRIME ACCUSED!! http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/fabricated-drug-charges-innocent-people-meet-arrest-quotas-detective-testifies-article-1.963021   THE RECOURSE OF THE PEOPLE HAS BEEN THWARTED, SO THAT THERE REMAINS NO COURSE OF ACTION THAT CAN BE TAKEN! THEREFORE THIS EPIDEMIC, WHICH HAS REACHED "NATIONAL PROPORTIONS" IS BEING PRESENTED TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES FOR IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION, ACTION AND REMEDY. AS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES, THE OCCUPIER OF OFFICE IS THE "CHIEF LAW ENFORCER" HAVING JURISDICTION OVER BOTH STATE AND GOVERNMENT IN ISSUES CONCERNING LAW! AND WHEN VIOLATIONS OF LAW ARE RAMPANT, UN-CHECKED AND UNABATED, HE HAS A "SWORN DUTY" TO RESPOND THOSE VIOLATIONS. LAW ENFORCEMENT ACROSS THE UNITED STATES HAS "ABUSED THE AUTHORITY" VESTED IN THEM, AND HAVE VIOLATED ON A "CONTINUAL BASIS" THE LAW ITSELF!  BUT NO ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN, EITHER BY THEIR DEPARTMENT, OR ATTORNEY GENERALS WITHIN THEIR STATE! THEREFORE, PETITION IS MADE BEFORE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES TO NOT ONLY ACT ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, BUT TO FULFILL THE OBLIGATIONS OF THE OFFICE - FOR WHICH HE OR SHE HAS "SWORN AN OATH" TO FULFILL UPON OCCUPANCY! LET IT BE UNDERSTOOD: THAT A "FAILURE OR REFUSAL TO ACT" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE OBLIGATIONS CONCERNING THOSE DUTIES, SIGNIFIES AN INABILITY TO HOLD THE OFFICE WHICH IS NOW BEING HELD.

Petition to County attorneys office, KAAL News 6, Betsie Singer KAAL NEWS CENTER 6

Help get justice for Blue!!

We need to get Justice for Blue, my dog..best friend and family member. We need Mower Co. Sheriffs dept to set an example of how theft is wrong.. And people taking someones fur baby is like kid napping. Also would like to have the humane society do a more thorough search for the pets family. They didnt even require a city or state as where my pup was 'found'. He was stolen from the care of a friend of Ryans with the deception that Jeffrey Phillips and his gf stephanie would return our dog to us.. Instead they drove him am hour away into Iowa.. (Different state) to dump him off as a stray. They deprived me off my esa. He is a family member.. And they tossed him away, not to mention then threatened ryan and I with physical violence because we told people about the theft. Now they haven't been charged as of yet. Sheriff wants receipts for the monetary value of the dog first. How can you put a price tag on a family member.. Or a child? Cause thats what he is like.. Our child. We would like this couple to be held accountable for their actions... And would like our pup home. Due to the neihs not requiring the paperwork being filled out correctly, he has been rehomed and the current 'parents' wont talk to us to see if we can work something out. I kept looking.. Everyday.. Posted on every site.. Kept them updated.. And looked at thousands of pics until a rumor got whispered in our ear about him being rehomed in iowa. Then I looked at every shelter starting with howard county moving south. Thats when I found the 1.. Yea just 1 pic and post of my baby Blue.... 5 months after he was taken. Please help us get something done about this situation so we can ger our baby back.. Or at least justice for him.
