Petition to Illinois, Illinois Governor
Justice for Kenneka Jenkins
Body of teen found in Rosemont Hotel Late last Friday, 19-year-old Kenneka went to a party at a Crowne Plaza Hotel outside of Chicago. She never returned home. There is now national outrage as the hotel stands in the way of Kenneka's family getting justice for the brutal murder of their daughter. The hotel isn't releasing camera footage and people across the country are speaking out. Keenaka's body was discovered in an industrial walk-in freezer at the hotel, almost 24 hours after a party-goer posted a live video on Facebook showing her sitting on a bed in a hotel room with a group of people surrounding her, loud music playing as she reportedly begs onlookers for help. Upon hearing of her daughter’s disappearance, Kenneka’s mother went to the hotel to search for her and attempted to get police involved, but hotel staff refused to let her inside and asked her to leave the premises. The hotel refused to review surveillance camera footage without a missing person’s report from the police. Later, their initial footage review claimed that there was no sign of Kenneka in the facility. Police later told Kenneka’s mother that her daughter “apparently let herself into an [10 degrees below zero] industrial freezer while inebriated and died inside.” Her family is outraged and is demanding answers from the hotel and police. They believe they might’ve reached Kenneka sooner if their pleas were taken seriously by authorities. Please sign this petition to get Crowne Plaza Hotel to show the family the camera footage and help them get #JusticeForKenneka.

My Family Kidnapped my girlfriend, help me save her.
June 2016 my girlfriend Amanda Christine O'brien-Martinez went missing out of no where so I did a missing person report with the Tacoma Police Department. In February 2017 I went to stay with my father Anthony Crawford and I found her panties, lighter, and sunglasses in my fathers drawer next to his bed. I confronted him and ended up stabbing him and when the police showed up I told them that my father had something to do with my girlfriend being missing but nothing was done. While I was in prison my cousins friends told me that my father Anthony Crawford, my step brother James Archie, my cousin Miguel Swain, and miguels friends Dolores Morales, Gabe Morales and David (nicknamed mooney) were the ones who kidnapped her and they took her to my cousins trailer where they been raping her and sex trafficking her. I had a detective come to the prison and I did a police report with the Tacoma Sheriff's Department. I got released April 29th 2018 and contacted the police to find out if they got her out of the trailer and they told me they lost the police report. I tried to report it again but they told me there was nothing that they could do. The people who told me the information told me that if a police investigation came up they would help but for some reason the police don't want to get a investigation started. I need to get a petition started to have the Mayor of Tacoma and Lakewood and who ever else look into this because I need to save Amanda from my family. I need to get Justice for her and I won't stop until I do. Please Help me take these rapists off the streets. If you want to know more about this story check out.....

A Voice for A Murdered Child - Public Integrity Investigation in Evansville, IN
We Respectfully Request: A Federal Public Integrity Investigation into the City of Evansville related to and extending beyond the murder of Haley Green. We believe that the details of the murder have been skewed to cover up the actions and decisions made by an officer responding to the scene of a murder in progress. We believe that the evidence tells another story that officials refuse to acknowledge, and appropriate people are not being held accountable. The father of the murdered child is being exploited and isolated from legal representation because of the influence of corrupt local authorities. Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, Joseph Hogsett, stated that out of the 60 counties of his jurisdiction, we either have the most honest officials on Earth, or someone is asleep at the switch. This is a model case of methods and tactics involving corrupt legal practices being used to alter the integrity of the legal and justice system. The suicide rate in this area is the highest in the nation. The agencies put in place to help people are ineffective. The representatives and advocates for citizens in Evansville are inept. Real problems are not being identified. City officials have inappropriate allegiances/ fraternities stifling the integrity of justice in our city. Haley Green was 16 years old when she was beaten, strangled, shot, sexually assaulted, and robbed while an Evansville Police Officer was present, sitting in his car as she was crying for help. A witness called police, where it was stated that an assault was in progress. The officer stood in the middle of the crime scene, disregarding all evidence presented that a violent crime was occurring. The EPD has conducted this investigation with ulterior motive to cover up the negligence of an officer within their own department. We believe that the EPD, detectives, state officials, and corrupt legal authorities involved in this case are engaged in a cover up that blames the victim instead of the ones responsible for her murder. There is an interesting relationship that can be observed regarding how these corrupt officials use their positions for influence, favors, endorsements, votes, and silence that undermines justice for victims of violent crime. There is an urgent need in this case for a proficient attorney to represent the interest of this murdered child and her father. The father will provide overwhelming evidence as probable cause in this pursuit for justice. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or JAG47720@yahoo.com for more information.
Petition to LaToya Broughton
Justice for Michael Parks, Jr.
On November 26, 2012, there was an alleged encounter involving the Miami Police Department, my brother Michael Nathaniel Parks, Jr. and a deceased party by the name of Lebron Warren at the U.S.A. Flea Market located at 3015 NW 79th Street in Miami, FL. From what we were told by one of the detectives from the Miami Police Department, the incident occurred in the afternoon around 1:00 p.m. The vehicle that was driven by Mr. Warren was supposedly involved in some type of home invasion or robbery that occurred near the area of the U.S.A. Flea Market. My brother Michael Nathaniel Parks, Jr. met the deceased individual at the Flea Market and then proceeded to depart with Mr. Warren to get a ride home. Upon departing from the Flea Market, there was an alleged victim who pointed out and stated that the vehicle Mr. Warren was driving was at the crime scene of the robbery and stated he was the suspect and told the police who were on site. There were officers who allegedly worked as undercover officers who approached the vehicle and Mr. Warren who was the driver placed the vehicle in reverse to leave and the cops then opened fire shooting them both while inside the vehicle. My brother Michael Nathaniel Parks, Jr. had no involvement in the alleged robbery or invasion that occurred earlier. He came to the U.S.A. Flea Market to get his hair cut and met up with Mr. Warren while there. They felt they were being robbed by the disguises of these officers. Unfortunately, the officers somehow felt "threaten" and upon shooting at the vehicle, Mr. Lebron Warren was shot 10 times died on the scene, my brother was shot nine times. Uncertain details as such shows that something occurred where the police didn't have to open fire on these young men. What my brother has gone through was traumatic, insensitive and unjust. There were days where we would called the Jackson Memorial Trauma Unit to check on my brother's health status. Every time our family attended court, the dates are rescheduled every three months, for what? When we want to have discussions with the Prosecutors and Public Defenders to fully understand the charges he's currently facing, there's no information, but on November 26th and November 27th of 2012 the media sure had a bunch of things to say with the information they were given by the Miami Police Department. On July 28, 2016, Judge Dava Tunis sentenced Michael Nathaniel Parks, Jr. despite his request for a speedy trial. She automatically knew in her mind that Michael committed all the crimes that he was allegedly charged with, she stated he was guilty and immaturely sentenced him to 30 years and an additional 5 years for the charges. On August 29, 2017, Michael Parks, Jr. was acquitted by a jury on all charges and shortly thereafter was transported to the South Bay Correctional Facility in West Palm Beach, FL Alleged Defendant's Name: Michael Nathaniel ParksCase Number: F12029627 Charge: Robbery/Armed/Firearm or Deadly Weapon (Where's the weapon he had? When did he commit a robbery? Where was the scene of the robbery? Will the victim point him at the crime scene?) Jury's returned verdict "NOT GUILTY" Case Number: F12029268 Charge: Resisting Officer with Violence to His Person (How was he resisting arrest after being shot nine times? How did he become violent when he couldn't breath properly and was asking for help through hand and body gestures?) Jury's returned verdict "NOT GUILTY" Case Number: F12029910 Charge: Murder 2nd Degree/Felony (How can he be charged with the murder of the deceased party? He didn't have any weapons? He did not initiate any encounter with the police? THE OFFICERS SHOT AND KILLED MR. WARREN. THIS WAS A HOMICIDE BY THE OFFICERS OF THE MIAMI POLICE DEPARTMENT) Jury's returned verdict "NOT GUILTY" Case Number: F10006731 Charge: Grand Theft 3rd Degree/ Criminal Mischief | Warrant Case (No explanation on what this particular charge was given for... Michael was not involved in any robbery? When did he commit a robbery? Where was the scene of the robbery?) Jury's returned verdict "NOT GUILTY" There was a total of seven (7) charges against Michael Nathaniel parks, Jr and ALL CASES ARE CLOSED! MICHAEL NATHANIEL PARKS, JR WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS. WE RESPECT THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES, IN PARTICULAR MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, BUT MY BROTHER IS INNOCENT AND HAS BEEN INNOCENT SINCE DAY ONE! As previously stated I would like to ask or know how do I go about receiving some type of legal assistance or obtain some type of counselled knowledge in understanding what I can do for my brother Michael Nathaniel Parks, Jr. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, A concerned sister and citizen of Miami, Florida LaToya R. Broughton
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 Allegheny County Council, Allegheny County Executive
Petition for a Civilian-Police Review Board of Allegheny County, PA
Allegheny County has approximately 130 municipalities with over 100 police departments including campus police, Allegheny County Police and Port Authority Police. Historically, there have been numerous and controversial incidents involving police brutality and misconduct by officers of these numerous police departments. However, the city of Pittsburgh is the ONLY municipality within Allegheny County which has an active mechanism to receive, process, monitor and facilitate the adjudication of civilian complaints of police brutality and misconduct. It is the only municipality within Allegheny County which has a citizen or civilian police review board. We seek the active endorsement and support of all Allegheny County public officials in addressing this issue. Therefore, we the undersigned residents of Allegheny County are calling for the creation and empowerment of a Civilian-Police Review Board of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
Petition to H.E (Rtd.) Brigadier Julius Maada Wonie Bio, The Sierra Leone Paliament, Independent Police Complaints Board (IPCB), Civil society groups, Sierra Leonean Citizens
President of Sierra Leone: Ask IG Moigbe to stop bullying citizens or resign his position
The Current Sierra Leone Inspector General of Police Dr. Richard Moigbe used his position and power to request that I am locked up without bail based on an allegation that I committed a traffic violation. The traffic violation was thus; I drove on George Street in Freetown from Siaka Steven Street because I did not see an road sign stating George street was a one way street and did not see any police officers at the Siaka Steven Street end stoping me from using the road either. So I used it and unfortunately for me, the inspector General was using the same street from the other end and we met on LightFoot Boston Street. I pulled over to wait for his vehicle to come in so I can get out without knowing he was the Inspector General. He came out of his car, verbally abused me, stating that we come from the Diaspora were laws are respected but in Sierra Leone we don't respect the law and asked his police officers to impound my car, take me to central police, charge me to appear in court on the following Monday and lock me up at central to spend the weekend without bail. All of this happened while am seating in my car watching him show his powers and not allowing me to say a word. All of this happened while I was in Freetown from the United States working pro-bono as a way to give back to my country of origin with a team of volunteers to setup https://electiondata.io/ and https://app.elections.sl to collect, aggregate, share and visualize election data and also working with the a group of women who were preparing to monitor the elections. Thanks to some friends I cannot list here who did there best in fighting for my right as a Citizen and worked with the police and IG to eventual release me on bail from central and helped me through the court cases. They had to used their connections and pleaded with the IG on my behalf to give me back my rights as a citizen and that I am allowed bail and that a traffic offense is not a criminal offense and etc. I was told by friends that this was not the first time for the IG to act like this in public. If you have similar story, sign the petition and speak up. This is not the New Direction people voted for in March 2018. ####What was wrong?###### 1. There was no road sign stating the street is a one way street and hence no actual traffic offense was committed. But he used his power as IG to assume that was the case. He should have known that a road sign is the language used on the road and that every person driving in Freetown is not always based in Freetown to know everything that is happening. 2. Even if it was an actual traffic offense, what he did was wrong. A traffic offense is not a criminal offense. Yes I am based in the United States but because I have a business in Sierra Leone, travel to Sierra Leone at least once every year and giving back to my country in my own way, paying taxes in Sierra Leone to support his job, he should have known better that I am not a flight risk who will run away from appearing in court due to a traffic offense. 3. Even if I actually committed the traffic offense, he had no right as the IG to verbally abuse my person in front of his police officers and abuse his police officers in front of the general public while forcing them to do what is wrong. A leader that uses abusive language in public is not a good one. Especially one that does the same to the people he is leading. 4. Because he is the IG, he made the arrest, he threatened the police officers to do exactly as he says without question, the officers feared for their jobs and had to follow his instructions to do the wrong thing. Bad leadership. Lead my example and let the police officers do their jobs following the law 5. He did not give me the opportunity to say a word or understand why I used the road and did not know why I was in Freetown. He saw a custom vehicle registration number and automatically assumed I was from the Diaspora and not obeying the laws in Sierra Leone. This is bad leadership According to advocaidsl.org, "Sierra Leone has a two-tired bail system where bail can be granted at the police station and court. When suspects who were released on police bail appear at court, the police bail is automatically revoked, but court bail is not automatically granted. This becomes a problem when a court does not sit or does not get to the cases of such detainees in the course of the day and contributes to the problem of pre-trial detention. It also opens accused persons to corruption at both the police station and the court. At the police station, police officers can grant police bail - this is where a suspect is allowed to be free from detention but some conditions are applied, for example report to the police station on a regular basis, do not interfere with witnesses etc. Bail can also be granted at the Magistrate or High Court." ######Call to action.########### If you are a Sierra Leonean or visiting Sierra Leone and have been in a similar situation where someone in power like the IG used his powers to the wrong thing and set the wrong example for the police force, speak up so the President, Parliament and Independent Police Board can take action to review the actions of the IG and his police and if necessary ask him to resign his position.
