Petition to Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Secretary, U.S. House of Representatives

Permanently Stop Abusive VA Dog Experiments

UPDATE (September 2018): U.S. Congress and the President enacted a law extending restrictions on VA's dog experiments through 2019. Read more here. --- UPDATE (March 2018): Following your efforts, U.S. Congress enacted a law to de-fund the VA's dog experiments for 2018 and placed dramatic restrictions on the practice. Read more here. We're still working to end this waste and abuse for good! --- As U.S. military veterans, family members, and active duty members, we’re sickened that the Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) has been using taxpayers’ money to purchase, breed, abuse and kill dogs in wasteful experiments. The VA’s painful and deadly experiments on dogs are a betrayal of these loyal animals who literally save soldiers’ lives on and off the battlefield. These projects also waste resources desperately needed to provide veterans with care and services.   According to news reports and the non-profit White Coat Waste Project, some of the V.A.’s current projects involve: giving mixed-breed puppies heart attacks (Richmond V.A.) cutting into beagle puppies’ brains (Milwaukee V.A.) damaging dogs’ spinal cords (Cleveland V.A.) With the support of 75% of taxpayers and a coalition of influential Democratic and Republican lawmakers, in March 2018 Congress enacted legislation that cuts funding for and drastically restricts future dog testing at the VA. Now, please join us in urging the VA Secretary to PERMANENTLY end this waste and abuse.   William Barko, US Army Ret.John Blaha, USAF Ret.Stan Benton, USN Ret. and USAF Ret.Bruce Bryant, US Army Ret.Chris Burand, US Army Ret.Gary Cantara, USAF separated, honorable dischargeWilliam Coll, US Army Ret.Michael Donahue, USNWayne Hair, US Army Ret.Ed Hernandez, USMCWill HubbardJennifer Johnson, USN Ret.Dr. Isis Johnson-Brown, US Army Ret.Ken Phillips, US Army Ret.Robert Reed, USAF Ret.Diane Solomon, USN SpouseTyler Spires, US ArmyVirginia Joy Stovall, USN Ret.Lyn StrangstadDanell Tomasella, US Army Ret.Nancy Warner-BrownJennifer Wilsbacher, US Army Ret.Merrie Wilson, USAF Ret.

Petition to Department of Justice

CLEAR Chief Lacewell {Highest Ranking TAS Agent EVER} creator of The C.H.A.R.L.I.E.S. FIVE

CLEAR THE NAME OF CHIEF D. MYKE J. LACEWELL HIGHEST RANKING TAS {Tactical Assault Specialist} OFFICER/AGENT EVER! The City of Lexington has proven that Chief Lacewell is truly and legally the Senior TAS Officer/Agent of ACT Guard Tactical Assault and that he was acting in legal merits to his legal duties to the community and that he was NOT responding to a police call, RATHER a quarter of his neighborhood came to the Tact House where he is assigned and resides. Lexington Court, D.A. and the Lexington Police Department have yet to accept responsibility for a horrendous mistake. No, they have continued to try and get Chief to accept any charge so that they don't have a Lawsuit. We his Supporters say, IT IS FAR TOO LATE. They are facing countless and multiple lawsuit on various levels, and each who caused his false arrest. Once the case is over we the Supporters of Chief Lacewell will DEMAND ALL NAMES INVOLVED! It's past time for REAL JUSTICE! Power hungry Rookie Police Officer shows his inexperience when he falsely arrested the Senior ranking TAS {Tactical Assault Specialist) Officer and Chief of The Guard, whilst he was responding to his Call of Duty and his neighbors desperate pleas. Chief Myke J. Lacewell 43 year old Serving Hero who was currently volunteering his and his Guards/Officers and Agents hours to Secure and Protect the frustrated and pleading citizens from the growing criminal element in his own neighborhood on his very street. This Black Ops Specialist known for Tactical Rescues and Kidnappings. He mainly that takes no money, because he believes he can't put a price on saving a life, not even hourly. This very same man who created the only and first male cancer foundation. Fighter against cancer and all diseases for over 2 decades. The creator of 3 100% non-income deductible fundraiser of children's cancer and sick Veterans. This man who when he gets a paycheck of grand amounts, he cashes it, then he drops it over half off anonymously at a charity. With no credit ever needed. THIS MAN, is the man that was purposely setup by 4 young college girls seeking attention. Setup from his own neighbors who he freely offered his time to listen after a burglary and the cops had came and went, but they were terrified and wanted true and complete Protection and Security through the night. Especially since the offender was still at large and the officers told the young ladies that the odds were that they would not find out who robbed them. Chief Lacewell was question, with no respect to rank or position, he was detained and arrested hours after he responded to a clients & neighbors complaint. He was charged with impersonating and officer, though he works with officers all over the globe, and they knew this charge not to be true. Plus he trains Officers, theirs and many countless others. He rescues countless officers in trouble when the threat is above a regular shots fired. He has been the unseen bodyguard to countless political higher ups on both Political sides and yet they put this lie on him to arrest him. ALL BECAUSE OF THE CHARLIES FIVE BILL/ACT !! A weak and cruel attempt to steal one of our Nation's, one of our World's most sacred of Protectors, most cherished of the un-honored shield Valor. Chief Lacewell was booked in his full tactical uniform and Shield, weapons, vest and all. Once in jail Chief Lacewell was stripped of all of his clothing for this entire stay, it was not a short one! Chief Lacewell was beaten in his cell late at night in his sleep, waking up on the floor unaware of what transgressed, but full aware that he felt as if he had been beaten senseless, repeatedly. His entire stay was in a cell for lunatics on the ward for lunatics. They spit in his food so that it was obvious, his trays of food were ALWAYS soaked in liquid and mushy gunk by the time he got it. He was on constant watch by inmates, and they started to feel bad for him, so they would pre-tell him about the food and they snuck him little niblets of food for him to survive. And survive he did. But after a FULL 10,000 dollar bond and he is still being taking to court a year later with full charges. The girls have relocated and have never shown for court, other witnesses robbed that same day have made several statements contradicting the false charges and statements and yet the City and D.A. still persist. Chief Lacewell has lost over 5.7 Million dollars in the past year of expected income, his local office couldn't afford to stay open finacially nor reputation wise. Money and a reputation desperately needed to Fund The C.h.a.r.l.i.e.s. Five ACT and his family. Contracts were put on freeze and his reputation has been slander without limit. They took all forms of identification from him, so he basically doesn't exist if questioned and he was warned that he would be arrest for such. They also tried to hide that they added that Chief Lacewell is supposed to be the thief. When Chief Lacewell was on a missing Child/Persons Case and he found 2 dead children whist looking for one. And yet when he got back, he proceeded to assist one of his teams on a raid and then he went to his office to train more cadets. At that time he was called and told that the neighbor hood had been robbed hours prior and the neighbors were out in big numbers looking for Chief. Hours later Chief was free to respond and yet the officers and court were told this immediately and yet they chose to disbelieve the entire neighborhood on the chance/hope to get a fake cop bust, in a time when they had 3 active fakers out there.{Note; Chief Lacewells' House & 2 Cars were broken into as well & Robbed} Oddly enough they had 9, Chief Lacewell and The Guard caught the other 6, but that seems to be irrelevant in Kentucky. The Judge told Chief Lacewell, that he knew exactly who he was and they have all the legal proof that Chief is Chief. And yet they still say the must prosecute. When his Lawyer asked what type of madness this was, they were told that in Kentucky You're Guilty until proven innocent. The opposite of our Constitutional rights. And yet they have yet to to stop, this has gone on for a year and they keep pressing. At this point, it's not all about an apology.. Just SET THIS MAN FREE!!!!! To add he was immediately allowed by the judge to return to work and yet he was arrest for that very same said work. He has not been able to accept one cent while under this case and yet he has worked every single day non stop. FREE OUR HERO< FREE OUR CHIEF!!!   Special Note: Chief was never even read his right by acknowledgement of the Officer and yet it's obvious this was not about Chief having any Rights.

Fight For Those Who Fought For You

As federal patients, Veterans are being prescribed extremely addictive pharmaceuticals linked to widespread death across the country. Despite this fact, these pills remain at a lower classification within the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) than cannabis. Cannabis has helped many people suffering from debilitating conditions such as PTSD, cancer, chronic pain, addiction withdrawal and has statistically lowered the suicide rate in states where it is “legal.”  Veterans Health Administration (VA) primary care teams should be educated on how to best implement cannabis into a veterans treatment plan. When a patient is a legal medical cannabis card holder as well as a veteran, they should be afforded the freedom to use cannabis within the VA system as a recognized medical alternative to psychiatric drugs without any discrimination or unjust actions against them.  Do you agree: Should veterans be able to treat themselves with medical marijuana? If you do, please join us in the fight to provide veterans safe access and compassionate care within the Veterans Health Administration.
