Petition to President of the United States, Sam Brownback, Pat Roberts, Mike Pompeo, Kansas State House, Jerry Moran

change the laws for all sexual predators, murderers & abusers of minor children.

    There are too many offenders, predators & abusers that are getting off with just a slap on the hand. All you ask of them is the promise to register and stay away from children. It is not working, everyday there are more children that come up missing, molested, abused and hurt in the most heinous way. It is all too often that these offenders are getting off with very little if any punishment at all. Many of them are or have absconded and are out there undetected searching for the next victim. This has got to stop. People who abuse children know that nothing will be done because our CPS fails to look into reports of abuse of children properly. The sexual offenders who have done this to these precious babies get to walk free while the children and familes suffer. There are so many precious children who do not survive their attacker, those that do survive suffer until they can find some kind of inner peace, either way there is someone left behind suffering from something that can be stopped, or at least slowed down.   You as the President of the United States of America have the ability to make the punishment for these crimes more strict.  Harsher punishment should be implemeneted for such heinous crimes against these innocent little children. Offenders, murderers, & abusers do not deserve to be protected in jail because of a crime they committed. The system is weak, and contiues to fail to prosecute these crimes to the fullest of its ability. Once a person has been jailed & apon conviction they should NOT be released back out into public. There is not enough money to pay enough manpower to track these sick individuals once released back out into public because they promise to be good. You CANNOT guarantee that any state can keep track of these people. However you CAN guarantee once convicted and behind bars that they stay there.   This proposed petition would require an immediate death penalty, life behind bars no possibilty of parole, and/or castration of the offender after they are found guilty. In exchange for the insanity plea there would be a life sentence without parole. While some states do not support the death penalty the other forms of punishment would be implemented.  People who choose to hurt our precious children do not deserve mercy. Children cannot defend themselves against an adult there are no excuses for letting these people bond out of jail where another child can be hurt. I pray you help protect our children from those who wish to harm them.

Make Kansas Clergy Mandate Reporters regarding Child Sex Crime and Abuse!!!

  We are  putting this petition together  to have a law made making ALL Kansas clergy mandate reporters of Sexual abuse and abuse in general of a child. It's time to stop silencing a child's voice. It's time for churches to understand and realize they are not above the law. How many times have children gone unheard simply because the church keeps it hidden or tries to handle things "internally"? Last year our lives were turned upside down. My son came forward with the fact that he had been molested more than once  off and on for 3 months. We can't call it rape yet because we are in the throws of the legal system and trying to get justice for our Sheldon. It didn't happen at the hands of some scary stranger who kidnapped him and took him away from us. Some of it indeed happened in our church during an over night stay and even in our own home. Right under our noses where we thought our son was safe. By people we knew well and trusted. There are other minors involved so we can't go in to anymore detail than that at this time. The part that happened in our church was not reported right away. Why? Because clergy are NOT mandate reporters in the state of Kansas. This needs to be changed.... how often do children in the church who are abused choose not to come forward for fear of not being believed or worse having their voice silenced?? We had the stranger danger talks and even the good touch bad touch talks. It still wasn't enough for Sheldon to speak out right away. It took three months for him to build the courage to come forward. We are telling Sheldons story not to gain attention or fame but to raise awareness about how close to home the threat can be. How often abuse in the church goes undealt with and the trauma and longterm damage d that results from it.  Sheldon coming forward sadly doesn't happen in most cases. A staggering 60% of kids who are sexualy molested don't ever come forward. We could have just fallen apart completely and lost our faith and blamed God, but we didn't. Instead we are starting Kids Voice Ministries and Kids Voice Kansas To empower children to speak up and to believe that someone does indeed care and will believe them and most importantly STOP the abuse. Even in the church.  Our other mission and focus is educating churches and the religious sec on children's rights and how devastating it is when you cover up or down grade what has been done to a child. We are just getting this off the ground and hope to raise as much awareness as we can!! Please pray for our family as we move forward and heal. Pray that God will work through us to help stop the suffering and free children from the chains of sexual abuse and that their voice WILL be heard!!!

PASS The Repeat Sexual Predator Prevention Act. Stop Serial Rapists & Child Molesters!

The Repeat Sexual Predator Prevention Act (HB301/SB270) is back in 2018! Tell your legislators #TimesUp on serial predators claiming consent and getting away with it. Thanks to sponsors Senator Jim Brochin and Delegate Vanessa Atterbeary! Did you know? According to the CDC, one out of every five American women will experience rape during their lifetime. Every 98 seconds a person is sexually assaulted in this country. And every 8 minutes, that victim is child. Millions of men in the United States are also victims of rape. 1 out of every 10 rape victims are male. The vast majority of rapists will never be incarcerated. Only SIX out of every 1,000 rapists will end up in prison. When victims finally get to court, they want to believe that justice is imminent. But the laws are stacked against them. In Maryland, serial predators are able to hide prior instances of rape and child molestation from juries. Today, in 2018, a defendant’s past predatory sex acts are not admitted as evidence during a trial… even if a clear pattern of assault or abuse can be established.  · If the defendant has a history of rape and assault, including any convictions—the jury will never know it. · If the defendant is a registered sex offender—the jury will never know it. · If there are other victims willing to testify and share their story—the jury will never know it. And while prosecutors cannot introduce this vital evidence, · Serial rapists can— and WILL— try to reference a victim’s sexual history despite rape shield laws. · Serial rapists can— and WILL—claim consent. · Serial rapists can—and WILL—rape again. We need your support. Help change the unimaginable reality Maryland’s victims of serial rapists and child molesters face every day. At least 35 jurisdictions and the federal government already have laws or rules enabling prosecutors to introduce this critical evidence.  It is time Maryland joined these states and stood up for survivors of rape and molestation. Sign this petition and help us to pass critical legislation that will close these loopholes, before serial rapists and child molesters continue victimizing our friends, family members, and neighbors. Sign NOW to tell your representatives in the Maryland General Assembly you won’t wait to help victims. Will they?
