Petition to 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 NCAA, Kirby Smart, Nick Saban

Unite Against Racism & Pledge to #TakeAKnee at the Georgia-Alabama National Championship

We are calling for anyone attending the College Football Playoff National Championship game on Monday, January 8, to kneel in solidarity with athlete-activists who have practiced their constitutional right to protest racial inequality, police brutality, and the disproportionate incarceration of people of color across our country. For those who cannot attend the game, we ask that you support this call by signing the petition and continuing the conversation around racial injustices in our communities. There could be no better time to do this. As much as 100,000 people are expected to attend the game in Atlanta, including Donald Trump, who has been explicit about suppressing peaceful protests for racial justice and who has attempted to whitewash these demonstrations. The game is a match between two high-profile state universities that yield a lot of profits from their collegiate sports—specifically football, which consists mostly of African-American student athletes. The universities represent two states with unequivocal institutionalized discriminatory practices in law enforcement and where more than half of the prison population is Black. We kneel in solidarity with athletes peacefully protesting racial inequality and police brutality. We kneel against the systematic oppression of people of color. We kneel because to us “this is bigger than football and it would be selfish...to look the other way.” -----------------------------------------------------We strongly encourage those with economic resources to donate to some of the organizations actively advocating for the civil liberties, human rights, and empowerment of people of color in Athens (home of the Georgia Bulldawgs) and Atlanta.
