Rape victims justice
Petition to Department of Justice, Attorney General, FBI
Petition the FBI to add "forced to penetrate" to the definition of Rape.
This is in response to this case from June 2018: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/06/27/montana-woman-with-machete-hides-behind-ex-boyfriends-door-then-forces-sex-on-him-police-say/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.54112a7cbefe The wording used "After the intercourse" and "An argument began as soon as the sex ended," but never do they say rape. Then this article about the same case: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/sex-boyfriend-machete-break-in-house-samantha-ray-mears-montana-a8427066.html The wording used "woman allegedly forced her ex-boyfriend to have sex by threatening him with a machete" and "engaged in sexual intercourse" and "machete in her hand as she sat naked on the bed and tried to have sex again," and again, never using the word "rape". The woman, the aggressor, was charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, unlawful restraint, partner/family member assault, and 2 counts of criminal mischief... but not rape. As a society, don't we deem sex by coercion rape? Threatening someone with a machete for them to perform a sexual act is coercion, just like it is coercion when a male holds a weapon to a female when he forcibly penetrates her. Just because a man gets an erection, does not mean he is feeling aroused. It's often a reaction to physical stimulation, similar to women: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1353113103001536 The FBI definition of rape, as of 2012, is as follows: “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.” This seems to only apply to women when it comes to forced penetration, unless it's done anally. Not even a women forcing a man's penis in her mouth would be considered rape because his mouth is not being penetrated by a sexual organ. This does not include men being forced to penetrate. The definition should be revised as follows: The forced penetration, as well as the act of being forced to penetrate, no matter how slight, of the or in the vagina or anus with any body part or object without the consent of the victim; or the act of forced oral penetration by another person's sexual organ, as well as the act of forcing another person's sexual organs into one's oral cavity without their consent.
Petition to President of the United States, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate
Families, Victims, & Law Enforcement Need the "Cold Case Accountability Act of 2020"
The Cold Case Accountability Act of 2020 is for EVERYONE! It supports law enforcement, victims, and families' rights. It includes victims of unsolved homicides, sexual assaults, missing persons, kidnappings, and other unsolved crimes. According to Murder Accountability Project, there are more than 229,000 unsolved murders in the United States. This means there are 229,000 families without answers and victims without justice. This could also mean there are 229,000 or more violent offenders still free, walking our streets, and living in our communities with that number growing by 5,000 or more every year. By signing the petition, you can make a statement to law makers that you care about law enforcement's fiscal and human resources, your community, you care about people who have been affected by and lost loved ones to violent crime, and that the American Criminal Justice System must respond. Currently, law enforcement fiscal resources are not enough to solve the American Cold Case Epidemic problem let alone to handle the incoming pending cases our men and women in blue are bombarded with daily. This misalignment of fiscal resources leaves law enforcement officers overworked, under paid, and unable to handle all the cases that need their attention, cold case victims without justice, families without answers, and violent offenders in society with the opportunity to reoffend. It is most likely that there is not a detective in America that wouldn't to everything he or she could if funding was in place. It is a fact that American local and state law enforcement is underfunded and undermanned. Crime lab scientists are limited by financial thresholds that keep them to testing only a handful of items per case. Families beg for help and get nowhere. Some law enforcement agencies fiercely fight for their cold case families while others won't even give a family an update. Some families have not heard anything about their loved one's unsolved case in years...there are so many reasons for this. Some families have waited decades for "someone to do something." Becoming a Lifetime Member of the club "Families of Unsolved Homicide Victims" and cold cases is unfathomable to all except those who have been inducted. Will you join the club? Can you say with certainty that your family would never be personally affected by homicide, missing person, kidnapping, sexual assault and that you would not need to fellow citizens to rise and fight with you? No. None of us know that. Any of our lives can be changed forever in an instant by a violent offender who takes action. Any of us can become a family member of a murdered loved one or seriously affected by violent crime...it doesn't just happen to "other people." Law enforcement needs money, education, and training, more officers, and families of cold case victims needs laws giving them rights to do more. The proposed Cold Case Accountability Act of 2020 aims support law enforcement so they have the fiscal and human resources to address the American Cold Case Epidemic, victims, and families to include law, such as but not limited to due annually by December 31st: Accountability Reports: For every cold case jurisdictional agencies will submit a Standardized Cold Case Evidence Accountability, Update, Status, & Investigatory Plan Report Family Updates: For every cold case jurisdictional agencies will update the family in writing and in person the non-confidential results of the Standardized Cold Case Evidence Accountability, Update, Status, & Investigatory Plan Report And after 24-months the above, plus: Accountability Reports: For every cold case jurisdictional agencies will submit a Standardized Cold Case Evidence Accountability, Update, Status, & Investigatory Plan Report Family Updates: For every cold case jurisdictional agencies will update the family in writing and in person the non-confidential results of the Standardized Cold Case Evidence Accountability, Update, Status, & Investigatory Plan Report Outside Agency Case Review: Case Review by an approved law enforcement agency (Optional) Private Sector Experts: At the Family's expense, Private Sector Experts can consult with jurisdictional agency And after 36 months, if all leads have been exhausted, there is no where else to go with the case, the family has right to, all of the above, and: Accountability Reports: For every cold case jurisdictional agencies will submit a Standardized Cold Case Evidence Accountability, Update, Status, & Investigatory Plan Report Family Updates: For every cold case jurisdictional agencies will update the family in writing and in person the non-confidential results of the Standardized Cold Case Evidence Accountability, Update, Status, & Investigatory Plan Report Second Outside Agency Case Review: Second Case Review by an approved law enforcement agency (Optional) Private Sector Experts: At the Family's expense, with access to the entire case file, Private Sector Experts can conduct a private independent death investigation (Optional) Private Sector Evidence Testing: At the Family's expense, physical evidence using advanced technology and/or retesting at a Certified Private Laboratory While it could be true that errors are to blame in cases across America and it is true that many families blame law enforcement for alleged shortcomings, corruption, coverups, etc. The truth is American law enforcement is underfunded, which mean there is no money for training that could help them avoid mistakes. And the truth is out of the 1.1 million law enforcement officers across America, the majority are outstanding individuals who do their jobs above board: one bad doesn't mean all bad. Fiscal resources must be reallocated in the United States primarily towards public safety, healthcare, and education or we won't need all the money allocated to sports and entertainment. The Cold Case Accountability Act aims to address the American Cold Case Epidemic with achievable, creative solutions that will realign critical objectives pointing the future trajectory squarely towards justice, increased public safety, federal legislation, access to advanced technology, enhanced investigative education, support for victims' families, and heightened public awareness. Thank you for your time and thank you for considering signing this petition towards Justice for All. We implore you to share and reshare frequently towards capturing as many signatures as possible.

Justice for Asifa Bano
8 year old girl (Asifa) got gang-raped and brutally murdered in Jammu, India by 6 six people including 2 police man. But all those crimnals are supported by BJP government. Please help to get justice!!! "***Detail from a newspaper: She was an 8-year-old girl who, while grazing her horses in a meadow in northern India in January, followed a man into the forest. Days later, Asifa Bano’s small, lifeless body was recovered there. Police say that Asifa was given sedatives and, for three days, raped several times by different men. Asifa's strangled body was eventually found Jan. 17. Police say she would have been killed sooner had one man not insisted on waiting so that he could rape her a final time. To ensure she was dead, Asifa’s killers hit her twice on the head with a stone, according to charging documents filed by police in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The eight men accused in connection to the rape and murder are Hindu. Asifa was a Muslim nomad, part of the Bakarwal tribe. Asifa’s father, Mohammad Yusuf Pujwala, told the New York Times that he believes his daughter was killed by the Hindu men for the sole purpose of driving her people away. To add to the volatility of Asifa’s case, police say she was killed in a Hindu temple, and that the temple’s custodian plotted her death as a way to torment the Bakarwals.***" Crime: Premeditated rape and murder of an 8 year old child, from the Kashmir region (child belongs to a Pahari nomadic Muslim tribe) Abducted, raped and murdered in a Hindu temple by the temple priest and others in India. Reason: To terrorise the tribe and to grab land. Jammu Bar Council of India (Jammu region) and other savarna Hindus including Hindu women came out in support of the rapists, even preventing to file a charge sheet. Demanding justice for Asifa is not about any religion or about a political party. It is about a kid getting raped and government (in this case BJP party) who is not providing any support to the victim instead covering up criminals. We need justice for her.

Petition to George Allen Family Court, Mesquite Police Force
Don't let Dallas reward my sister's rapist again
Every day, people overestimate the importance of the police force in domestic situations. Unless they walk in on a man beating his wife, walk in on a burglary, or walk in on a rape, you are expected to file a report and wait. Wait while you feel dirty, cheated, wronged, and rightfully angry. EDIT: Judge Jean C. Lee, and Brandon's lawyer, Angela May, have renewed the court order this Saturday. Her restraining order has been dissolved to allow him access to the child. Angela May, reported by the family attending the court, has displayed unsportsmanly behavior that has made Micheala uncomfortable before, making statements that imply that she doesn't believe the rape really happened. She is attacking the [multiple] petition makers under defamation, with claims of libel, despite the fact the petition is simply a recording of events and she has not been sworn at, harassed, or insulted like the mother of this case. Are you afraid of the truth? Let the people decide what your character is from your actions, as you are a public figure.Full story inbound:What people don't know is that the justice system is more flawed than they'd guess! It's elementary knowledge that if you are black or mixed raced, you will have issues with the law. This is the case for this family, that I adopted myself into, as we often had run ins with the law due to my father figure's record (a false accusation). Our childhood was miserable and deprived, and uniforms were a symbol of fear and corruption, rather than protection for us. We frequently witnessed our father beaten, carted off to jail, and were abused by supervisors and bad friends growing up who would use this record against us.So, naturally, when my sister got into an abusive relationship with an individual by the name of Brandon Haynes, with a criminal record. She didn't go to the police when he hit her. Security, not the police, at the movie theater she worked at protected her when he was stalking and hawking her workplace, post getting fired for his problematic behavior. She didn't go to the police when he choked her unconscious at his house on Christmas Eve, and raped her. She took a week's worth of the abortion pills given to her by the clinic, but the entire week was hammered with guilt by the anti abortion protesters outside, and her own grips with her faith. When she saw the blood, she thought it was enough, and she could finally stop this nightmare and pretend it never happened, like most rape victims do.However, months later, the baby had survived. Despite the attempted abortion to cover up her shame, despite the medical malpractice in which she was in labor for 3 days, Anthony survived, and my sister thought it was a sign- a miracle. She decided to raise him better than his "father", and got him checked up at a reputable doctor this time, and resolved to take care of him no matter what. 5 months later, the news came in-Brandon Haynes, the man who raped her, heard through a mutual friend that she had given birth, and demanded access to a child that he had no right to, and access to a girl who annulled their toxic relationship long ago. The nightmare was beginning again.He resumed stalking her workplace and harassing her phone, and she fell back into the battered mindset. And the court gave it to him- all the access he could ever want, to hurt and control her, to keep her living in fear. Maurice Aguilar ruled in his favor in court, alongside rude comments like "You don't look raped." He court ordered that she meet Haynes again, and give him custody of her breastfed baby every Saturday for five hours. I was there (on call, and the rest of the events here are recounted by mother and family) on that first day, where she promised to come by and feed him. Haynes took the child in a booster seat far too large for Anthony (Toddler sized, not for a newborn), and let Anthony cry and cry, refusing to let either of us touch him once he had his hands on the child. He had no diapers, no baby food, no bottles- he expected her to give him her resources which she worked hard to give Anthony since the moment she was born.However, she was sure Haynes would steal them, and he was informed on what to buy. Haynes ignored all of this- after driving off with the child, we met him at the home to feed Anthony when he said "No- just give me a bottle and leave." Outraged, we waited on the street, and he invited his friends. My sister recognized them as drug users and dealers, as several unknown individuals entered the house. His family, fully supporting rapist Haynes, called the police. The police showed up and forced us off the street, off of public property, claiming we were "harassing" Haynes, despite the fact we were on the street and did not once enter his yard or block his driveway. He was utterly despondent and rude, refusing to inform us about anything with how he was "taking care of" the baby.I was called, and calmed my sister in a walmart parking lot after being bullied away from the home by two police cruisers. She was dry heaving and crying from separation anxiety, as we stressfully awaited the next five hours. When Anthony was returned to us, his clothes had been changed, he smelled like soot, and he was jumpy and anxious. Anthony was out of it, as if he had been drugged with some kind of sleeping pills, and jolted and cried each time he was held until he realized that his mother was there, and began to calm down. We drove home immediately and examined the child.Anthony's diaper was on far too tight, it was cutting off his circulation. More importantly, he was red and raw in the face from crying and being left to cry, and his anus was red and irritated with two long hairs between the cheeks. We panicked and took him to two doctors, waiting all night just for doctors to tell us what the police and attorneys had been telling us since this nightmare began- "We can't do anything." The latter doctor rephrased her "I can't do anything", to immediately blaming my sister for Haynes' negligence- she suspected that Haynes starved the baby and it gave him diarrhea, and it was my sister's fault for that? So we decided to keep Anthony for two weeks following the incident. Anthony had since recovered.Now, today, this poor woman is living with the constant threat of jail, fines, legal fees, and harassment, and the court who so generously informed us that Haynes, MY SISTER'S RAPIST, is pressing charges. Since the law has done nothing but humiliate her, the people, you can decide.We have gathered witnesses, people that knew where she was, and know of Haynes' actions, despite his frequent denials on the stand. Now all we need is your signatures, so that other rape victims in Dallas and other people can use her case as a source of courage for themselves. All she wants is to get a nice job, take care of her son, and for Haynes, and the legal system, to leave her and her family alone.An alarming trend reveals family court bias is actually against mothers."I don't care what she wanted- I want a light skinned baby." -Brandon Haynes, in a threatening phonecall to our family. We reported it to the police, but were once again informed that they couldn't do anything about it.Speaking of the police, they're using my father's expunged record against us now, years after it has been cleared. Is this not illegal? "PAS isn’t recognized by the American Psychological Association and isn’t listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Dr. Paul Fink, former president of the American Psychiatric Association, describes PAS as “junk science at its worst.” Legal authorities are just as skeptical. A 2015 American Bar Association report, Parental Alienation Syndrome: 30 Years On and Still Junk Science, concluded “Despite having been introduced 30 years ago, there remains no credible scientific evidence supporting parental alienation syndrome.” The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, and the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) have also spoken out against PAS, stating it “threatens the safety of abused children.” But despite widespread repudiation, PAS is still accepted in family courts." I have included links to some studies, books, and articles throughout this piece. Thank you for listening and signing. We aren't expecting donations, nor are we asking for any, but if given we will use them for court expenses and caring for Anthony. Thank you, again, for your time and generosity. Donations made through change.org are used to advertise the petition automatically and do not go to the family.Please don't let the law traumatize us and reward my sister's rapist again.I believe that it is inherently wrong to force my sister to give up her custody to the man who raped her. I fear that if this goes through, it will destroy what little spirit she has left, and rape her again. Please protect the victims.EDIT: Her attorney Allen Roach does not think she will win this case. Brandon Haynes, despite previously claiming to have no money, has recently hired a lawyer. Affadavits from fellow coworkers and acquaintances are being signed.

Stop hiring of Coach Art Briles by University of Southern Mississippi
Art Briles is under investigation by the NCAA for the covering up of 55 rapes by his team of football players. There have been five titles nine complaints settled and as a student at the University of Southern Mississippi and a rape survivor. I feel that the hiring of Coach Art Briles would not just hurt the morale of the student body. But that it would send the message that the University of Southern Mississippi is fine with rape culture. We the students until at USM are signing this petition to stop the hiring of Coach Art Briles due to the allegations that at the time of this petition have not been resolved by NCAA and would not feel safe having a faculty member on the USM payroll that violates the morals cause that USM has in place .

SHUT DOWN OPERA ATLANTA FOR ALLOWING THE RAPE OF A YOUNG WOMAN TO HAPPEN
The nightclub Opera in the city of Atlanta allowed something to happen Saturday night 01/19/19. In the middle of the club a young woman went live on Facebook as she was raped. Neither the patrons nor security or management did anything to stop this atrocity. Speaking of management they were probably too busy groping young women or harassing men about wearing shorts rather than doing their job. Again this didn’t happen in a bathroom or secluded location this happened in the middle of the venue. As a male I fear for any woman who steps foot in that place because I’ve seen the “security” drinking, socializing, dancing, everything but doing their actual job. This club is an embarrassment to not only the city or state of Ga, but to the entire United States. Opera is directly responsible for this. They need to be shut down immediately and the owner blacklisted from ever owning a club again.
