Domestic abusers aren’t heroes. Don’t let them play on your team.
Trigger Warning I was raised a Redskins fan, proud of my team and proud of my home state of Virginia. But domestic violence separated me from my home, and now it’s making me lose faith in my team. When I was only 21 years-old, I separated from my husband, who had abused me throughout our year long marriage. I had a restraining order against him and went into hiding. I left my house and went into hiding, returning only for a few minutes each day to check on my pets, and always with a friend accompanying me. I had a restraining order against my husband, but he showed up to the house one day while I was there, broke my front door down and tried to kill me. My friend got him off of me but then my ex-husband grabbed a hammer and beat my friend to within an inch of his life. He left my friend in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor and fled. Because of this, I was forced to move hours away in order to feel safe again. Violence against women is a crime. Sign my petition asking the Redskins to pledge not to let people convicted of domestic violence play for them. It’s been years since that incident, but it changed my life. Being a survivor of domestic violence myself, it’s became more and more difficult to watch football games like I used to. There are currently 44 men playing in the NFL who have been accused of sexual assault or domestic violence and the league has become notorious for ignoring charges or accusations against their players of violence against women. In fact, in order for an NFL player to get kicked out of the league they have to be convicted not once but twice of domestic violence. Please sign my petition asking the Redskins to implement a zero tolerance policy for players convicted of domestic violence. I reported my ex-husband’s abuse multiple times before that awful night, but no one ever took it seriously enough to do something. Even after he attempted to murder someone, my ex-husband only spent three months in prison. Violent and abusive NFL players are getting away with the same slaps on the wrist and it has to stop. Until the NFL changes the rule, it’s up to individual teams to hold their players accountable for their actions. Only real heroes play in the NFL, and heroes don’t abuse and assault people.
Be responsible as public servants and arrest the criminals at Chrysler, US DOT, and NHTSA who were reckless and negligent in the gruesome homicide of an innocent teenager, Skyler Anderson-Coughlin, and the young expectant mother, Kayla White.
After witnessing victims burn to death on 10/05/2012, I united 128,000 supporters to demand a recall of dangerous Jeeps. Chrysler grudgingly agreed but only after a public display of unprecedented defiance; however, their heartless stall tactics have resulted in the fiery death of an innocent teenager, Skyler Anderson-Coughlin, and now a young expectant mother, Kayla White. Skyler burned to death on a highway in Massachusetts on 11/10/2013 and Kayla White was eight months pregnant when her 2003 Jeep Liberty was rear-ended on the Lodge Freeway near Telegraph in November 2014, after I watched victims burn to death on a highway in Virginia, and after Ray LaHood of US DOT and David Strickland of NHTSA secretly met with Sergio Marchionne of Chrysler to give him complete control of the recall process and allowing Chrysler to downplay it by not calling it a “recall” at all. As if that weren’t enough, our NHTSA and US DOT representatives offered up on a silver platter the bonus of excluding some models of dangerous Jeeps. Hence, Chrysler presented a fraudulent promise to the nation that they would recall dangerous Jeeps (quietly excluding many Jeeps of the exact same design flaw). As per the protocol of US DOT and NHTSA officials, no record of this meeting exists. No transcript, no agenda, no meeting minutes, no anything. However, the facts have unfolded revealing the true details discussed in that meeting. Are you more comfortable now in your higher-paid Chrysler-lobbying law firm position, Mr. Strickland? Even though it cost Skyler Anderson-Coughlin his teenage life and Kayla White dying while carrying her first son? At Skyler’s memorial, his mother reportedly reminisced how he had looked forward to his prom and the day he could finally get his braces off. He would never see those days. She then went on to tell the grief-stricken mourners that she believes her son is paying attention and was then quoted as saying, “We have to be responsible. We have to make sure we are safe for other people. If they had done that for Skyler, if they had been more responsible, he’d still be here.” Even though months after US DOT and NHTSA executives negotiated what they considered a “responsible” recall (industry experts do not agree) with Chrysler Jeep executives, not a single Jeep had been recalled at the time of Skyler’s death (and months afterward as well). Nonetheless, Hampden Deputy District Attorney James Forsyth chose to charge a couple of non-English speaking men, with criminal manslaughter in the untimely unfortunate fiery death of Skyler. Those men had nothing to do with the faulty design of that Jeep that caught on fire.

From Seana, Skyler's Mom, Coughlin of Springfield, MA I am Skyler's Mother. I will fight for justice against the evil wrongdoing that robbed my precious son of a beautiful and successful life, my daughter of a life with her best friend brother and Skyler's father and I of an inspired life with our amazing son, as well as all of our family and all of Skyler's friends that love and miss Skyler every second of every day. I will pursue change so that this never happens to another innocent person trying to make the world a better place, trusting in others to do the same, while receiving the opposite from people they trust in, such as Jeep Chrysler, to make safe and trustworthy automobiles for us all to drive in safely. If Jeep Chrysler won't protect the same people that trust in them to do so by purchasing their cars, then we need to come together and stand united and force them to make changes and protect their consumers instead of take the risk in allowing them to be killed so that they can benefit through evil profits and lies. True love and pure justice and equal rights must prevail. If it won't happen from the hearts and conscious minds and spirits from Jeep Chrysler top dog evil employees naturally, because it is the right thing to do, then we must fight for it. Evil can not win over love and light and truth. We can not let it. TEAM SKY! From Ellin Coughlin of Bourne, MA I lost a wonderful grandson, Skyler, due to Chrysler's greed an negligence. From Susan Coughlin of Saunderstown, RI I am Skyler's aunt. Our family will never be the same. The loss of Skyler has left a void that is impossible to fill, along with unspeakable pain, although we will strive to honor Skyler's life and will never forget him. As upset as I am at the irresponsible people who did not secure the couch or cushions that caused Skyler to swerve, I am even more angry that a huge profitable corporation chose to avoid recalling the unsafe vehicle Skyler was driving until it was too late. It is unfathomable that Jeep Chrysler decided instead to risk lives being lost because it was cheaper to settle lawsuits on a death by death basis rather than fix all the faulty vehicles. From Lisa Cataldo of Holyoke, MA I'm signing because Skyler Justice Anderson-Coughlin was a beloved student of mine. His death is a senseless tragedy. From Jehann El-Bisi of Florence, MA I love Skyler and there is always dirt under the corporate rug causing innocent people to lose their lives. We talk about accountability... Make those responsible be accountable. One life does matter. I am sorry Seana you lost your beautiful boy to negligence and irresponsibility. From Margie Souza of Fairhaven, MA Seana Coughlin and I grew up together on Cape Cod and I know the loss of Skye has affected so many people not only his large family but his vast number of friends, classmates and acquaintances. People need to be held accountable! This senseless tragedy could've been avoided and my dear friend Seana would have her beautiful son with her. Let's do the right thing!
Save Innocent Families!
Over 287 people have died in 202 fiery crashes involving 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees, more than the ill-famed Ford Pinto in the 1970s. The ones with the power to recall these faulty-designed Jeeps have allowed Chrysler’s intimidation to stall the process of their investigation. Allow me to share the grim details of two doomed victims in their last 60 living seconds. I witnessed their last breaths taken while sitting in a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Be warned that my story is shocking and disturbing. The reason I am telling it is in hopes to get your signature and avoid my story becoming your story. On Friday October 5, 2012, just after work, I went to my Dad’s place in Frederick County, Virginia. Dad just purchased a car that week and wanted me to drive it to see how impressive it handled on the highway. As soon as we entered I81, we found ourselves sitting in stopped traffic at the back of the line. I was chuckling and commenting how we were on the highway, but sitting in a traffic jam. I didn’t finish my comment. We were hit. We immediately went into a spin. Shattered glass showered us as our windows exploded. I saw flashes of the same big rig over and over, all around our car. The hits kept coming. Our car landed in the guardrail. Dad and I got out of the car and found ourselves standing in the middle of I81 in the darkness of night. At this point, we had just had the most horrifying experience of our lives. Sadly, the next 60 seconds will be a million times more horrific. Once out of our car, I wondered if I was in a nightmare. My Dad came around the car pointing to a big rig pulled over on the shoulder 50 yards away. My Dad said, “We were being run over by that tractor trailer.” My Dad had not yet noticed the Jeep across the road from us, which was also hit by the truck. I was looking right into the small fire at the back of the Jeep. I guess I went into a state of shock. Already hyperventilating and sobbing at what I was afraid I was about to witness, my Dad looked at me and got worried. He asked if I was okay. I gestured for my Dad to look towards the Jeep as I said, “I'm okay but those people...” I could hear and see the Mom and 2 teenage boys struggling. Dad immediately ran to the Jeep. The doors were jammed so he busted out a window with his bare hands and leaned into the Jeep. Dad grabbed the first person in his reach, the teen in the front passenger seat. The teen was pinned only by his seatbelt. Dad yelled at the teen that there was a fire and that they had to get out fast. That teen ignored this complete stranger leaning in his jeep yelling at him. Tormenting fear and excruciating worry regarding the fate of his mother next to him and his friend in the back seat were the teen’s only considerations. The Mom seemed in shock, like me, but knew my Dad was trying to help them. She reached over and released her teen’s seat belt. My Dad pulled her son out the window and away from the Jeep. As the saved teen was sobbing with concern for his mother and his friend in this dire circumstance, my Dad focused on the teen in the back struggling to get out. My Dad pulled but that teen was pinned. Jeeps’ back seats collapse in a crash. That teen could not get his hand to the latch of his seatbelt. As the pinned teen struggled to get out of the backseat, my Dad ran around the front of the Jeep towards the driver’s door to help the Mom. The Mom was not trying to get out. She watched my Dad running, perhaps wondering why the rush. Then there was the noise. It was a gushing noise that brought fire… lots of fire. The entire vehicle was swallowed up by flames. At the moment the fire consumed the Jeep, the teen in the back was still hopeful of getting out, the Mom was still processing the wreck that had just happened, and the saved teen was still hopeful the three of them would be arriving home together that night, as planned. My Dad changed direction continuing to run but away from the blistering Jeep. In that instant, they burned to death. My Dad barely escaped the fire. Dad ran over to me shaking his head and said, in a heartbreaking tone, “That’s it. It’s over.” Dad and I stood in front of the Jeep and watched in horror as the Mom and teen burned to death. The saved teen watched the burning Jeep too as he tearfully screamed, “Mom! Mom!” After those 60 seconds, witnesses surfaced. We learned that a big rig came up behind us and did not see the stopped traffic. With his improper brakes (charges pending Frederick County VA GDC adjudicatory hearing 04/16/2013), he probably wouldn’t have stopped in time anyway. The Jeep was behind us and took the first impact, was pushed into our car, and then landed in the guardrail of the right shoulder. With the Jeep to the right, our vehicle bounced around in front of the big rig as it kept moving and kept hitting us over and over until we bounced into the guardrail of the left shoulder. The only survivor in that Jeep was the teen my Dad pulled through the window. The surviving teen’s family reportedly feel like they lost him in the accident too. The surviving teen will never be the person they once knew, not after watching that Jeep go up in fire with his young mom and his schoolmate still inside. This happened over 3 months ago. I still hear those boys’ screams. I still smell the stench of burning people. After seeing firsthand how a Jeep can turn two living speaking humans into two dead silent skeletons before our eyes, I am angry that these Jeeps are on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration started an investigation of these Jeeps in 2009. Sign this petition to get the 1993 to 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees, which have the gas tank behind the rear axle, off the road immediately and for good. People are surviving all kinds of traffic accidents only to tragically gruesomely burn to death after the accident.
