Stop Judge from allowing child molester supervised visitation with minor children
Alabama Judge to allow child molester to have supervised visitation with minor children, including the 9 yr. old that disclosed he molested her. The Georgia resident and father picked up his minor daughters, from their mother; his ex-wife, on April 5th 2019. At the time the girls were ages 7 and 8. The father then discovers sexually inappropriate videos on the then 8 year old child's cellphone. The 8 year old child; who really isn't old, nor responsible, enough to have the cell phone that her mother has given her, then discloses to her Father that she has been having sex with her stepfather. In total disbelief, the biological Father immediately took his two girls to Egelston Children's Hospital of Atlanta to have them checked. The Atlanta police, Georgia social workers, and Georgia Department of Family and Children's Services got involved to do what's in the best interest of the children; by protecting them and keeping them safe. The Georgia agencies then contacted the Alabama agencies (as the children are Alabama residents) to put a plan of action into place to protect the children. The biological father of the two minor girls was advised, both verbally and through text, by the Cullman county DHR worker, Kindal Beach, that all other children that reside in the mother's home had been removed and that if the minor girls were returned to their mother's home they would be placed in foster care, so to not have that happen the father kept the girls with him. The caseworker then coached the biological father of the steps to take to withdraw the girls from the Alabama schools,to prevent truancy while the case was investigated. The Cullman Alabama caseworker, Kindal Beach gave these instructions both verbally and via text, yet; when at trial and under oath, she denied that she coached the Father. During this time, the father actively did everything necessary to protect and provide for his children. He got them into therapy at the Stephanie v Blank Child Advocacy Center, located in the Children's Hospital of Atlanta. He also got them into family counseling, with his fiance and stepchildren, to help them all with transitioning into the home.These services were offered at The Potter's House in Stone Mountain Georgia. Both girls were enrolled in the Georgia school system. and the father volunteered daily and chapperoned firldtrips in an effort to allow the girls to cope with their trauma and go back to being little girls. During this time a forensic interview was done in the Cullman County Alabama child advocacy center with Kindal Beach from DHR and the forensic specialist whose name I won't mention. During this interview the girls disclose that the 8 year old daughter has been involved with another student at her school and the student let's her sit on his lap while he puts his hands in her pants during school hours. The minor girls also admit to their biological father that the 8 year old had sex in the home with neighbors. Court was held on May 21st 2019 and the child molester and stepfather of the children was present in court. Judge Jennifer M. Howell dismissed most of the biological fathers evidence and didn't take into consideration the best interest of the children. Judge Jennifer Howell stacked the case in favor of the biological mother and she refused to read the testimony from the children's therapist about disclosures of the sexual abuse. The judge Jennifer M Howell of Decatur Alabama Circuit Court, did the children a huge injustice by ordering both girls be immediately returned to their biological mother, and immediately be withdrawn from Georgia schools and returned to Alabama schools. Jennifer M Howell also asked She's Kindal Beach if she would allow the Stepfather to have supervised visitation with the minor children to which Ms. Beach replied she would and that everyone loves the step father, hence placing them back In harm's way. Placing then back in the school where the little boy puts his hands in the eight-year-olds pants, back on the property where the molestation is taking place, back on the property where random male children come into the mother's home to engage in sexual activity with the minor girls. The judge Jennifer M Howell also disrupted the therapy just as the girls began to form a bond and the oldest girl disclosed the sexual abuse to the therapist. This is outrageous.. since when are decisions made based on what is best for the mother instead of what is best for the children? It was also disclosed to the therapist and the biological father that the biological mother does the children's homework for them. The eight-year-old child is in third grade with a first grade reading level. And even the former Alabama teacher stated under oath that the child struggles with math and reading however they would still "move her along". Why would they promote a struggling child to the next grade level without implementing a plan to help the child succeed in the future?While the children were in the state of Georgia the biological father was able to secure a 504 plan and an RTI intervention so that his eight-year-old child could get an IEP in the upcoming school year. In less than 6 weeks the biological father was able to get a plan in place as well as therapy in place something that the mother has had years to do . Judge Jennifer Howell disrupted this process as well. To make such a decision while the case is still open and the investigation is still open and active is absurd. Why do the children have to have visitation with their molester. Why not leave the children in a safe environment where no molestation has been indicated. Why not allow the children to finish out the school year and continue their therapy while the investigation is underway instead of causing more trauma by forcing them to meet new therapist? Shame on Decatur Alabama Judge Jennifer M Howell and Cullman county Alabama DHR Kindal Beach for not putting the children first. Shame on Cullman county Alabama's Children's Advocacy Center Brooks Place for not stepping in to protect the children and allowing their molester to be present in court and to have visitation with the children with no objections. Especially being that he is The Stepfather and has no biological children of his own. It took courage for this child to disclose her abuse. Now it's like blaming the victim for her abuse or like saying you don't believe her by placing her back in the exact environment she needs saving from. The biological father and family are asking that this judge be made to step down and that this case be heard by a higher Court by a non biased judge. Judge Jennifer Howell stacked the case in favor of the biological mother and she refused to read the testimony from the children's therapist about disclosures of the sexual abuse. It's appalling that a family court judge would place children In harm's way and terrifying to the biological father who lives four hours away in the state of Georgia that his daughters are continuing to be molested by the stepfather and peers as they will be attending the same exact Alabama school. Help the voices of these minor girls be heard. Save them from this injustice caused by Jennifer M. Howell. A statement from the courtroom made by judge Howell just minutes before she made her decision was that she had five minutes before she needed to be somewhere else and she needed to wrap this up. Seconds later she made the most devastating and horrific decision to return children to a harmful environment where they're not properly supervised nor monitored, where their homework is done for them, where they're allowed to used electronics and browse the internet unsupervised, where they have frequently watched pornographic content, and worst of all where they were molested. How can any family judge in good conscience and being a mother of a young daughter herself make such a decision! Judge Jennifer M. Howell needs to step down and allow the case to be heard and tried in a higher Court, the Cullman County DHR case worker kindall Beach should be terminated, and Cullman Children's Advocacy Center needs to step up and do what they're in place to do which is protect and advocate for the children so that they receive what's in their best interest for their educational, mental, and physical health and well-being. Let's put a stop to Judge Jennifer Howells poor judgement and decision making. Sign the petition and share.

A Child Chokes to Death Once Every Five Days.
A child chokes to death once every five days, choking is the number one cause of accidental death in our school system. Current rescue protocol fails almost 30% of the time when performed by a trained medical professional. I know these statistics because my son Camynn choked to death on a rubber ball at the age of 18months. Fire rescue and the local hospital tried everything but the tools and procedures they had did not work. My situation is not an isolated one. 5000 people choke to death each year in the United States. I don't want anyone else to feel the pain that my family and friends are feeling. There is a bill that is being presented to the Wisconsin State Senators next month that needs your support. If approved, the state would provide grant money for schools to implement airway clearing devices such as LifeVac. These devices are inexpensive, easy to use and highly effective in a choking emergency. I am trying to turn my family tragedy into something positive by preventing this from happening to another child. Please sign this petition to show the senate your support. My family thanks you in advance for your support.

Keep Worlds End Safe & Beautiful
We are asking our elected and appointed officials to help us protect the safety of the citizens of Hingham and visitors to Worlds End by rejecting TTOR’s expansion plans. The plans include adding 60% more parking, building a new 1,400 square foot visitors center, a bus turnaround, and widening the front gate. We are petitioning to both limit the number of visitors’ spaces to the existing parking availability and prevent building a visitors center thereby living within the access limitation that came with the property. The full petition can be found here: A Petition to Keep Worlds End Safe & Beautiful

Expansion of LGBTQ Student Protections
Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual spectrum students are at increased risk of suicide, bullying, and risky behavior. Gender non conforming and Transgender students are at EVEN HIGHER risk. While ignorance and hate are spreading, it is even more important now than ever to PROTECT CHILDREN, especially while in school. This petition is to clearly define LGBTQ children in public schools as a protected class and remove any and all conversion or anti-LGBTQ lessons from all classes. In 2019, this should not only be a simple ask but a no question call to action.
Petition to Syracuse City School District
Help Improve School Security
The purpose of this petition is to request that the Syracuse City School District install school resource officers on a full-time basis in each of our schools to ensure the safety of our kids. Safety is and always will be the number one priority for every community. In a world of ever-increasing threats, school resource officers are often the first line of defense against potential disasters. The cost of such resources is always a concern, but should always be secondary to keeping our kids safe. In addition, school resource officers provide a stable and positive presence, demonstrating that law enforcement is always there to serve and protect our families. Please take the time to sign and share this petition. Even if you are outside of the district, the safety of students should be a national priority.

Make crosswalk on Charleston Blvd between Mojave Rd and 28th St
I work at Siegel Suites Charleston 2 located on Charleston Blvd between 28th St & Mojave Rd. In my position, I am always looking for ways to make life easier for not only our residents, but the entire community. There is no nearby crosswalk for our tenants, so they have to walk all the way down to Mojave or 28th St in order to cross the street. Most people would rather risk j-walking than to walk that far to get across the street. It is a dangerous and expensive crime. Several times a day, metro has pedestrians pulled over in the middle of the street for this and imposes an almost $300 fine. I have seen children, seniors, and everyday pedestrians in this situation and would love to see a change come about. If we do not get a pedestrian crosswalk people's lives will continue to be in danger, our communities money will continue to be wasted on tickets and fines, and police activity in the area will continue to increase.

Build a skatepark in Hall County
Building a skatepark in Hall County will have a positive impact on our community. 1. SKATEPARKS REDUCE DAMAGE TO PRIVATE PROPERTY Public skateparks are a win-win because skateboarders have a safe place to pursue their passion, while law enforcement, business owners and community members no longer have to spend time, money and energy shooing skateboarders away from their property. 2. SKATEPARKS PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR SKATEBOARDING The majority of skateboarding injuries happen outside skateparks. The most common injuries are falls due to surface irregularities and collisions with motor vehicles or pedestrians. Skateboarding is going to happen whether skateparks exist or not, so the best way to keep youth safe is to provide them access to safe, designated spaces to pursue their activity. 3. With national health issues looming for today’s youth, it’s time to offer a greater number of healthy, athletic choices. You don’t often see obese skateboarders. Lots of skateboarders skate several times a week and often for hours at a time. There is clearly a commitment for these kids to develop their skills, yet they do this without coaches, leagues, and often without even an appropriate place to do it. 4. Young and old people enjoy skateparks. Skating has been a part of our culture for more than 50 years. There are skateboarders well into their 50s who still enjoy pushing around a park. The skatepark is a place where the young and old can recreate together as equals. This is important for adult skateboarders but equally important for the younger set.

Increase Safety of the Packers and Schlimgen Avenue Crossing (Madison, WI)
Update 09/14/2018 Local media outlet Channel3000 picked up this story, watch/read it here, and the local police put up "Your Speed" indicator signs. --- Hello all,So I've written some of you (City of Madison Mayor, City of Madison Traffic Engineering Department, District 12 Alder Larry Palm, Northside Police Department, local news, IMAP school) recently about the dangerous pedestrian/bike crossing at Packers and Schlimgen Avenue. It's near the Isthmus Montessori Academy (Public) school and many parents and children cross here as part of our daily routine. Coming from the Brentwood Village Neighborhood we bike across at Packers and International Lane going to school. This intersection by itself is not terrible as there are lights here. Crossing International can sometimes be a little challenging as airport bound cars do not yield to this crosswalk, but it's manageable. Then myself, bike trailer, and another father bike back and cross at Schlimgen Avenue. The Schlimgen Avenue crossing is a death trap at best. There are pedestrian activated yellow flashers here, crossing signs and paint, but it's simply not enough. Cars are going way too fast at this crossing. I'm not sure if the speed limit is 35 or 45 here but it's way too fast for cars to react safely to crossing pedestrians. This morning I was a witness to this deadly crossing at a distance that was far too close to think about. Crossing back across Packers Avenue we activated the yellow flashers and Northbound traffic did not stop. Once the pack of 20-30 cars went by a single car at the back of the pack stopped and we proceeded to the median. Once in the median, we have to stop again, because even though the flashing yellow lights have been on since before we could cross the northbound lanes nobody has stopped in the southbound lanes. In the median, I waved my arms, as the yellow lights continued to flash and the southbound traffic continues to ignore us and the lights. Finally, a single car comes to a complete stop, and then it happens, CRASH! A full sized, flatbed tow truck rear ends the car. Who, by the way, was the only driver doing the right thing in this case. From there I called the accident into 911 as it appeared everyone involved was ok. However, a thought occurred to me. What if the tow truck hit me? Or one better, what if my daughter was still in the trailer, I begin crossing as a single car stops, and then the inattentive tow truck driver hit. I can only guess. Best case scenario we'd have a lot of breaks and bruises. Worst case scenario we're dead. Or what if this was a child crossing the street by themselves. Would they have waited for traffic or might they have just gone right into traffic? More action on improving this deadly intersection is needed and it's needed now. We are only a few weeks into the school year and a deadly crash is just a matter of time. A few thoughts on immediate improvements we could make here are to make this area a School Zone with reduced speeds, more school zone flashing lights, crossing guards, crossing flags, police enforcement, and perhaps "Your Speed" indicators. Long term I'd like to see an additional light here, a pedestrian bridge or a pedestrian tunnel like those that run under East Washington Avenue. Just so everyone is aware I will be reaching out to local media about this problem, as well as the IMAP school, our alder, the mayor, North Madison Police Department, and the City Traffic Engineering Department. I hope together we can do something about this crossing before someone gets seriously hurt or dies. Thank you in advance for your support with this effort, Justin Masuga
