Justice for Rape Victim.Culprit and his family member who exploited grl should be punished

It’s a story of a girl (victim) who one day gets a call from consultancy for a job by the guy named Ravi Shankar son of Sunil Kumar Choudhary of Purnea(Bihar). Since she had a different offer in hand, she rejected the offer. Ravi informs her that he is from her own town and want to become her friend and continues to call her. When girl said she can't talk to the stranger he came down to Pune just to meet her. Girl soon started working in Mumbai. Ravi even came to Mumbai and proposed her for marriage but she clearly said that she is in love with Hemant so she can be just his good friend and Ravi leaves back to Bangalore but never stopped calling her. After a year Hemant wanted a break up when the girl asked him to get married. Hemant was simply using the girl for physical needs with the false promise of marriage. Victim shared the story with her roommate who took her to NGO. The NGO people took her to police and filed a complaint. Till then Ravi had become a good friend of the victim, he suggested to leave Mumbai to come out of a trauma. Change of place may help in recovering and advised her to come Bangalore because Bangalore is also known as software hub. Since till then Ravi had become her good friend, she took his advice and went to Bangalore and started working. One day Ravi came to her flat once again proposed her. Since she had already been through a trauma it was really hard for her to believe in love therefore, she rejected and asked him to leave since she was alone but instead of leaving, he raped her. After that in very filmy style takes sindur and put in girls head says you are my wife from today I did mistake but I'm taking the responsibility and will talk to my parents really soon and will marry you socially too. The girl had already gone through a trauma and it was a second trauma and she took it as a fate. After sometime Ravi said to convince them please transfer money to my brother-in-law's account as dowry girl did that, then he demanded a mobile for her mother similarly guy took lakhs of rupees from her but there was no confirmed date for socially marrying her. One fine day Ravi said her I will not marry you and if you will say anyone that I raped you or if you say anything against me to anyone, I have the FIR copy of the case that you did on Hemant I will defame you. Since we are from the same town everyone will know about you. Even she with her family member went to his house but there was no positive output. With the fear girl decided to keep quiet. She quit the job and went to her home town. Her family member went to his house they insulted calling her family of lower cast and said how could they even think general cast boy will marry her daughter his brother Gaurav Anand who works in UNION Bank in CHENNAI abused her saying you are the girl who have slept with 10 guys if my brother raped you then what happened it was not new thing for you. Even her sister Rashmi Choudhary called and threatened her saying she will defame her if the victim goes to police. The crime of rape is a major problem in India. The accused has often gone free, because the victim did not file a complaint, it is estimated that only one (1) in 69 cases even gets reported. However, now she gathered courage and have reported to the police about the Rape and the money taken by Ravi and his family member. She also has submitted the bank statement to them. Although police have arrested Ravi but they are not taking any action on his brother in law which brings #bihar_police in the eye of doubt.  Now when everyone is coming forward and supporting #METOO movement we cannot take off our eyes from this kind of exploitation too.  Name of his brother-in-law is Satish Kumar Sharma. He works for a software company named ACI WORLDWIDE INDIA in Bangalore. I think we should support her and help her to get justice and let her know that she is not alone. Police and the ACI WORLDWIDE INDIA should take action against Satish Kumar his brother-in-law, UNION Bank should take action on Gaurav Anand and Bail of Ravi Shankar should be rejected by High Court Patna . #METOO #METOOINDIA #METOOMOVEMENT #AGAINSTRAPE #CORRUPTION #NITISHKUMAR #BIHAR #BIHAR_POLICE

Petition to The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Donelle Dadigan, Patty Brunton, Cindy Braun, Christine Derenthal

Remove Bill Cosby Star NOW from The Hollywood Walk of Fame

Bill Cosby is a brilliant stand-up comedian, actor, musician, author and community activist. Now, he is also a convicted sex offender. SIGN MY PETITION TO REMOVE BILL COSBY'S STAR FROM THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF  FAME.  After DECADES of whispers and rumors, Cosby was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault in April 26, 2018.  The case involved Temple University employee Andrea Constand, who testified under oath that Cosby drugged and molested her at his Philadelphia home in 2004.  At the trial, five other women told about similar encounters.  OUTSIDE COURT, MORE THAN  **60 OTHER WOMEN ** HAVE COME FORWARD with stories that are much the same, but include rape.  SOME of the victims were minors when they were assaulted.  MANY of their horrific encounters took place decades ago.   On September 25, 2018, a silent Cosby heard his sentence: three to 10 years in prison.  Despite his attorney's protest, Cosby was handcuffed and transported directly to prison immediately after Judge Steven T. O’Neill made the ruling.  This dramatic fall from grace has been tough for the millions of fans--including myself--who adored Bill Cosby. First, there were his terrific comedy albums, and then he was Scotty, the uber-cool agent on "I, Spy."  Later, Cosby was high school coach Chet Kincaid and a happy-go-lucky spokesperson for Jell-O Pudding Pops.  For many, he was also the wise and funny Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show," a loving family man and The All American Dad.  BUT, the real Bill Cosby hid behind every one of these characters.   In reality, Cosby was a cunning sexual predator and serial rapist, serving up alcohol and pills to unsuspecting women and then assaulting them.   NOW, it's TIME for The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to DO THE RIGHT THING.  SIGN MY PETITION TO REMOVE BILL COSBY'S STAR FROM THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF  FAME.  Despite the sentence--which includes Judge O'Neill making Cosby register as a sexually violent predator--the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has so far refused to remove the star.    While rescinding a star has no precedent, taking away an honor from Cosby has already happened dozens of times this past year.  In a one-two punch in early May, Bill Cosby’s name and statue were removed from the prestigious Television Academy Hall of Fame AND the American Advertising Federation Hall of Fame.    As of July, **Nearly 30 colleges and universities across the United States have revoked honorary degrees from Cosby,** including Yale University, an action the college has never taken in its 300 year history.  Some other prestigious schools are USC, Temple University, Johns Hopkins University, Notre Dame and Boston College.  At least half a dozen other colleges are recommending to their boards that their Cosby degrees be revoked.    When the verdict was announced, Cosby shouted expletives in the courtroom.  Unlike others who have apologized and taken responsibility for their reprehensible behavior, Cosby continues to say he has done nothing wrong.  To keep the Bill Cosby star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame is to agree with Bill Cosby.  For the sake of millions of tourists who visit the Walk of Fame every year--especially families with young children--NOW is the time to remove Bill Cosby's star. Together, we can encourage The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to DO THE RIGHT THING.  REMOVE BILL COSBY'S STAR.   THANK YOU.

Petition to American Medical Association

Call on the AMA to recommend policies that protect patients in comas and vegetative states

An Apache woman in a vegetative state for 14-years just gave birth at the Hacienda HealthCare clinic in Phoenix, Arizona. There’s absolutely no way she could have consented to intercourse. Staff didn’t even know she was pregnant until she was effectively giving birth. Due to disabilities, she's been at this facility for the majority of her life. Her family is devastated and outraged that their daughter was raped at a facility intended to care for her unique needs. The facility is doing genetic testing on male staff to find the father, and requiring male staff be accompanied by a female staff member when dealing with patients. These actions after the fact cannot take away that a woman in a coma was raped and gave birth at this facility. Women in vegetative states shouldn’t be violated. Tell the American Medical Association (AMA) to create policy recommendations that protect patients in vegetative states and comas from sexual assault and rape. Noticeably absent is America’s largest medical association. The AMA has no policies requiring male staff be accompanied by female staff when dealing with coma patients. Coma patients and those in vegetative states are uniquely vulnerable to sexual assault. Tell the AMA to create recommendations for policies that put coma patients first - protect coma patients from rape. The AMA should create policies for facilities to follow if they are caring for patients in comas or vegetative states. Those policies could include: requiring male staff be accompanied by female staff, and monitoring who goes in and out of patient rooms through sign in sheets and cameras. These patients can’t speak for themselves. Tell the AMA to protect patients in vegetative states and comas. This woman is not alone. Other women who have been in comas for half a decade or more have been impregnated at facilities in Massachusetts and New York as well. Coma patients and patients in vegetative states shouldn’t be put into situations that allow them to be violated by caretakers or visitors. Tell the AMA to create a guiding policy that keeps these patients safe.
