Whereas, Havens Road is a two way road half of the way down. It presents a significant hazard to anyone travelling by vehicle on the road when having to go to a one vehicle road.
The large hazard is a sharp curve you cannot see around. When it rains it washes the road into in places. The constant regrading of the road produces delays and dangerous conditions for anyone traveling on Havens Road.
Whereas the constant regrading has been progressively less effective with every rain. Limestone and dirt has to be brought in to build the roadway back up. And ditches to be cleaned out. The town is incurring unnecessary expenses due to constant regrading and etc.
We the undersigned, respectfully request that the unpaved road immediately be properly prepared for paving and then paved as soon as possible. And to include repair or make ditches to accommodate the flooding of the road.
What’s Wrong With The Felony Murder Rule- Common Sense:
1. It is fundamentally unfair and in violation of basic principles of individual criminal culpability to hold one felon liable for the unseen and unagreed-to results of another felon’s action.
2. The felony murder rule operates as a matter of law upon proof of the intent to commit a felony to relieve the prosecution of its burden of proving intent to kill, which is a necessary element of murder.
3. The intention to commit a felony does not equal the intention to kill, nor is the intention to commit a felony, by itself, sufficient to establish a charge of murder.
4. The felony murder rule violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of due process, more specifically, equal protection of the law, because no defense is allowed on the charge of first-degree murder, only the underlying felony.
5. The purpose of creating degrees of murder is to punish with increased severity the more culpable forms of murder, but an accidental or unknown killing during the commission or attempted commission of a felony is punished more severely than all other murder charges with exception to first degree murder.
6. The felony murder rule erodes the relation between criminal liability and moral culpability in that it punishes all homicides in the commission, or attempted commission, of the proscribed felonies, whether intentional, unintentional, or accidental, without proving the relation between the homicide and the perpetrator’s state of mind.
7. Holding one or many criminally liable for the bad results of an act which differs greatly from the intended results is based on a concept of culpability which is totally at odds with the general principles of jurisprudence.
8. The basic rule of culpability is further violated when felony murder is categorized as first-degree murder because all other first-degree murders (carrying equal punishment) require a showing of premeditation, deliberation, and willfulness, while felony murder only requires a showing of intent to do the underlying felony.
9. While the felony murder rule survives in California, and other states, the numerous modifications and restrictions of it by some states courts and legislatures throughout the United States reflect dissatisfaction with the basic harshness and injustice of the doctrine and call into question its continued existence.
10. The felony murder rule can be used by prosecutors in a manner so as to cause grossly disproportionate sentencing, depending on the circumstances of each individual case.
11. The felony murder rule is unconstitutional because the presumption of innocence is thrown out. The prosecutor must only prove intent to commit the original felony; once done, first degree murder attaches to the underlying felony even though intent, (mens rea,) to commit murder does not have to be proved.
12. The felony murder rule is unconstitutional because it violates the Eighth Amendment: cruel and unusual punishment, grossly disproportionate sentencing to the crime(s) actually committed.
13. The felony murder rule bears no rational relationship or equity in its two penalties, with the penalties of other California murder laws, including, at times, the charge of first-degree murder.
Shutterstock have introduced a new taxation scheme. This states that if you are in a country which has a double taxation agreement with the US, you will need to fill in a form, involving private information, and send notarised copies (expensive) of your passports to the US. If this form is not filled in, then 30% of ALL your earnings will be deducted for US tax. If you live in a country without a tax agreement with shutterstock, then you will automatically be leaving 30% of your earnings with the IRS.
Shutterstock is attempting to censor debate on their forums by banning contributors who disagree with their point of view. For an open uncensored debate on the issue of IRS taxation on our earnings, feel free to use this forum. Details such as when the petition will be handed in and negociations with shutterstock will be discussed there too.
For this petition to have the maximum impact with the shutterstock management, we need to get a maximum number of signatures. Because shutterstock is deleting posts from the forum refering to this petition, we need to get the word out as many contributors are unaware of this petition and the potential benefits that it will bring if successful. So please make details of the petition known as widely as possibly. This is for the benefit for every non-US contributor at Shutterstock.
For 86 years, the city of New Port Richey on the Gulf Coast of Florida has exploited American Indian culture and spirituality to sell an 11-day food fest and carnival called the Chasco Fiesta.
They put on a pageant in which children dressed as Florida Indians made stabbing motions into the chests of children dressed as Spaniards, showed Indians practicing human sacrifice, and showed a Spanish priest teaching Indians how to plant corn, squash and other crops, while the priest calls the Indians savages, pagans and heathens. The happy ending of this pageant? The Indians spared two white children making them their King and Queen, then convert to Christianity.
And why are there no Florida Indians today? The Chasco Fiesta brochure says when their benevolent white rulers died, the Indians reverted to human sacrifice, so God killed them all: men, women and children--with hurricanes, not Spanish genocide and disease. The pageant ended only when local citizens took the mayor and the president of the local Chamber of Commerce to court. Also ended were these activities in the Children's Indian Village: "Pin the Tail on the Drunken Indian," and "Find the Buried Treasure in the Miniature Indian Burial Mounds in the Big Sandbox."
What remains is the Krewe of Chasco, more than 300 white local civic and business leaders who dress up in authentic, sacred Indian regalia purchased at great cost, so they can appear in nine regional parades as a living advertisement to the Chasco Fiesta in late March. They are the only krewe in Florida that dresses like an ethnic minority that is not made up of a majority from that group--in fact, they pay a Seminole $5000 to stand on their float--the going price for betraying your heritage here.
Peter Matthiessen, author of several books on American Indians, calls the Krewe of Chasco one of the greatest insults to American Indians in the U.S. today. When the Florida American Indian Movement (AIM) and local citizens protested the float, the Krewe president told a Chamber of Commerce luncheon, "I want you all to buy guns and kill AIM--I'll bury them for free." He owns a funeral home.
On their website now closed to outsiders, one of their photos showed a drunken blonde woman wearing a sacred Plains Indian headdress with the caption, "Even Squaws can be Braves in the Krewe of Chasco"--apparently unaware that the word "squaw" is as insulting as the n-word to African Americans. On their float to "honor" Florida Indians as their non-profit charter says, they have a big brown fort representing the power of the military in destroying American Indians, a canoe and a drum from the Northeast, totem poles from the Northwest--and one paid Florida Indian.
Each year, the city of New Port Richey and the Pasco County Commission uses taxpayer money to rent the float for this private club--$21,000. Letters, lawsuits, protests, arrests and local petitions signed by more than 100 city residents have not been successful. Anyone who cares about American Indians who is considering a visit to this area should reconsider, and let the local governments know why. To freeze American Indians as they were a century ago, and to act as though they do not exist in modern-day American society is shameful.
No American would consider dressing up like blacks, or Roman Catholics, or Jews if they do not belong to that group--why then dress up like American Indians?
This is a petition drawn up in light of the recent events in Pakistan. It seems the opposition parties after winning the majority of seats are intent on making President Musharraf resign. Through this petition ordinary Pakistanis make an impassioned plea to President Musharraf to NOT RESIGN!
As ordinary Pakistani citizens it is heartbreaking to see that former political leaders such as Nawaz Shareef and Asif Ali Zardari back in power. It is these same people whose previous rule was characterised by intense corruption, mismanagement and dazzling incompetence. They looted and plundered the country.
Nawaz Sharif’s incompetent government and Benazir’s corruption (wife of Mr. Zardari who is popularly known in Pakistan as 'Mr. 10%') left Pakistan in a dismal state. Thus prior to Musharraf’s debut on the stage of Pakistani politics in 1999,
* The country was almost bankrupt;
* Pakistan was on the verge of being declared a “failed” and “terrorist” nation;
* It was listed as being the second most corrupt nation in the world (the first being Nigeria)
* During the time of Benazir and Sharif, the KSE 100 index was less than 1300. Now it is over 12000.
* Atrocities such as judicial killings of opponents took place shamelessly throughout Pakistan, particularly in Karachi, for which Benazir and Sharif were both primarily responsible.
During President Musharraf's rule Pakistan's economy has seen unprecedented growth. Corruption is at an all time low and large-scale development is taking place all over Pakistan, with a significant amount of construction going on in Karachi and areas of Baluchistan. Moreover, Musharraf is the only leader of Pakistan who has taken a strong stance against religious extremism.
This is a crucial stage in Pakistan's history and we need Musharraf to help us through this phase. We, the people of Pakistan are sick and tired of seeing our national wealth looted and our country mismanaged by incompetent and satanic politicians such as Zardari and Nawaz Shareef.
Ova peticija ima svrhu da uveri RTV B92 da serija Buntovnici je jedna od trenutno najpopularnijih serija u Srbiji iako nam je onemoguceno gledanje pomenute serije od strane B92.
Naime redakcija B92 tvrdi da je gledanost mala iako nisu upravu, gledanost serije je jako velika sto dokazuju mnogobrojni forumi, sajtovi,blogovi... Kao i najvazniji dokaz je objavljivanje Srbije kao potencijalnog domacina grupi Erreway. Ma koliko se mi trudili i pokusavali da ubedimo b92 u suprotno do sada nam je bilo bezuspesno, nadam se da ce im ova peticija dokazati da su Buntovnici kod nas popularni podjednako kao i u Bosni, Hrvatskoj, Argentini, Spaniji,Izraelu, Rusiji...
Kod njih se ova serija reprizira cak po dva tri puta na nacionalnim televiziji, ali mi deca iz Srbije smo deskriminisani po tom pitanj nas glas se uopste necuje... Nadamo se da ce se ovom peticijom to i promenuti...
Cumberland Township is being forced through Pennsylvania Law (Landowner Curative Amendment) to entertain an application to cure our zoning laws of an omission of the term "water park" on behalf of Cali Entertainment, Mechanicsburg PA. Cali Entertainment wants to purchase land, develop a "mixed used facility" including a hotel/theater/indoor out door water park and condominium space/retail space. The land in question, 96.7 acres of privately owned parcels is located at the intersection of Business 15 & Cunningham Road, Gettysburg, PA.
Cumberland Township residents, Freedom Township residents/businesses in the impact area were invited by certified letter to attend a special April 17th 2007 Curative Amendment Application Hearing at the Cumberland Township Offices, Fairfield Road. The residents in attendance who expressed opinion did so overwhelmingly against this curative amendment application and in fact against this project as a whole. The residents were not expecting such a high density development with multiple and ongoing demands of water and septic when the area was rezoned 3 years previous. Additionally, the size of the facility and it's components remove every spectre of real nature and wipes forever the serene bucolic quiet views. This facility will operate days, nights, weekends and all season long.
The attendees were informed that there is no public referendum required or permitted to deny this application at the outset. The Township soliciter advised that current PA law permits for only acceptance of curative amendments - there is no denial in a direct sense. They have to approve it and take the time and money to research what changes need to be made to the plan to make it happen.
Cumberland and Fairfield Township residents have grave concerns regarding the consequences of such a project from water use of this facility: not only the pools proposed but the regular commercial use. This project presents a bevy of environmental concerns from loss of habitat for native creatures, loss of greenspaces (note: handy landscaping does NOT replace greenspaces) to increased noise pollution from traffic, congestion on this road as there is no possible way this can go in without a traffic light; light intrusion from the facility, visual intrusion of this facility the folks who have to face this compound.
The plans as originally stated call for 85% impervious coverage which nearly doubles the current standards in the township of no greater than 45%.
In adequate EMS support in terms of manpower and equipment and water resources is a huge safety issue.
In this particular case harm comes to not only the quality of life for Cumberland Township residents but Freedom Township residents in the immediate impact area. Given the two townships being governed by separate entities and the final say being in the hands of Cumberland Township, the rights of those in Freedom Township appear to be swept under the rug as their supervisors have left them alone with their issues with no hope of support or protection.
We the undersigned are resolved that future problems resulting from approval of this curative amendement will be caused by a flurry of land speculation and rampant residential development. This will cause an influx of more residents to an area that will be woefully unprepared for their immediate and future needs, including but not limited to water, septic, educational, emergency/medical and professional services. The loss of greenspace and the further flushing of our wildlife from rural areas will also be devastating.
We also believe that despite the thousands of dollars and time spent rezoning the area over 3 years ago were not adequate to meet the savvy methods of developers/builders of this era.
When the new East London Line arrives in 2010, it will mean severe and unacceptable cuts to our existing train services to and from London Bridge. We are asking for your help to fight these cuts by signing our petition.
- Direct trains to and from London Bridge are likely to be cut to four trains per hour.
- This is a reduction from the current service of six trains off peak and more at peak times.
- There will be an extra eight trains per hour on the East London Line stopping at Sydenham and Forest Hill but these will only be four carriages long, with limited seating available.
- Cuts are proposed to the Clapham Junction and Victoria service from our stations, possibly removing this service entirely.
- With these proposed cuts it is likely that London Bridge services will become even more congested than at present.
It is vital that we keep our existing level of services to and from London Bridge
We are not opposed to the new East London line - we warmly welcome it - but this should not be introduced at the cost of existing services.
This petition has been produced by the Forest Hill Society and is supported by the Sydenham Society.

This is a petition regarding on ongoing complaint with the City of Rochester regarding its lack of interest, concern and effort regarding the uncontrolled Canadian Goose population within the city limits and specifically as to how the destruction of property and contamination of the uncontrolled Goose population directly affects residential neighborhoods and private properties.
The residential community of Pinewood Homeowner's Associations I & II (located at Pinewood Road and McQuillan Court SE, Rochester, MN) is unique in that it is comprised of 48 units with over 85% of the residents being senior citizens and many residents with active, chronic medical issues (ie: cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and other degenerative conditions).
These permanent health issues make it virtually impossible for the residents to directly confront or to clean up after the invading Goose population. In addition, this community property borders directly with a wetland area that is both owned and maintained (so to speak) by the City of Rochester. The Department of Natural Resources presents various methods of population control.
We are confident that the City of Rochester is well aware of those options....none of which have been given active consideration at this point in time.
This petition is submitted as a follow-up to our onsite meeting with Amy Blenker (Rochester City Council Member) and Barbara Huberty (Rochester Public Works Department) on July 12th 2006 and is submitted as per their request.

Under truth-in-advertising principles, the ACLU should be an acronym for Anti-God Communists and Lunatics United instead of American Civil Liberties Union. But cunning far leftists prefer seductively sensible-sounding names to truth in advertising.
Likewise, the Center for Constitutional Rights should be renamed the Center for Unconstitutional Wrongs.
The Associated Press reported that these two self-misdescribed "civil liberties" organizations filed lawsuits in United States District Courts in New York and Detroit attempting to block President Bush's warrantless eavesdropping program (which is designed to prevent the horror of terrorist attacks on America), arguing, absurdly, that such electronic surveillance is unconstitutional, because it involved Americans receiving calls from abroad from terrorists or suspected terrorists.
The New York suit, filed on behalf of the Center and individuals, named President Bush, the head of the National Security Agency, and the heads of the other major security agencies, challenging the NSA's surveillance of persons within the United States without judicial approval or statutory authorization.
It seeks an injunction that would prohibit the government from conducting surveillance of communications in the United States without warrants.
The Detroit suit, which also names the NSA, was filed by the ACLU along with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Greenpeace and several individuals.
Just what America needs during a War on Terror: to distract the government's attention from that war to litigating with egomaniacs bent on undermining America and aiding and abetting the terrorists.
Were companion suits filed against the terrorists, along with a request for an injunction against them calling people in the United States as part of their war on America?
Of course not.
President Bush has explained that the wiretapping is legal and necessary, pointing not only to his inherent power as Commander-in-Chief, but also to a congressional resolution passed after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that authorized him to use force in the fight against terrorism as allowing him to order the program.
The program authorized eavesdropping of international phone calls and e-mails of people deemed a terror risk.
To protect America, a President can go much farther than that, of course..
In 1944, during World War II, in Korematsu v. United States, the United States Supreme Court held that it was legal to exclude all persons of Japanese descent from their homes and communities by military fiat power, the threat of the Japanese during World War II being perceived, rightly or wrongly, as sufficient in the circumstances, because "the power to protect must be commensurate with the threatened danger."
These days, with World War II won and the threats of Nazism and Communist distant history, the United States Supreme Court decision in Korematsu is viewed as having gone too far. Perhaps so (as former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director J. Edgar Hoover argued to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, then America's President and Commander-in-Chief). But surely President Bush's limited warrantless surveillance is hardly "unreasonable" after September 11, 2001.
The Fourth Amendment protects property and prohibits only "unreasonable searches and seizures." It implicitly acknowledges that some warrantless searches and seizures would be reasonable and it was not written and ratified to help America's enemies wreck havoc.
In 1921, in Gouled v. United States, 255 U.S. 298, the United States Supreme Court explained not only that the Fourth Amendment banned only such searches and seizures as are "unreasonable," but also that it is to be construed in the light of what was deemed an unreasonable search and seizure when it was adopted and in a manner to conserve public interests as well as the rights of individuals.
Protecting America from terrorist attack trumps the interest of Americans who prefer that their calls with terorists and/or terrorist suspects be private.
Wiretapping was NOT within the purview of the Fourth Amendment. So said a majority of the Supremes, correctly, in Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 338 (1928). In Olmstead, the Supremes reviewed convictions obtained on the basis of evidence gained through taps on telephone wires in violation of state law. On a five-to- four vote, the Court held that wiretapping was not within the confines of the Fourth Amendment. Chief Justice Taft, writing for the Court, set forth two sound reasons for the sensible conclusion: (1) inasmuch as the Fourth Amendment was designed to protect one's property interest in his premises, there was no search so long as there was no physical trespass on premises owned or controlled by a defendant; and (2) all the evidence obtained had been secured by hearing, and the interception of a conversation could not qualify as a seizure, for the Fourth Amendment referred only to the seizure of tangible items.
Chief Justice (and former President) Taft was right! Winning the War on Terror and avoiding catastrophic terrorist attacks are legitimate public interests, since the Constitution was not created as a suicide pact.
The time has come for you to act now and make a forceful statement of your support to the historic transformation in U.S. - India relations. We are witnessing a shifting of paradigms, and you can play a critical role at this juncture when the entire world is watching the outcome of the civil nuclear agreement between the U.S. and India.
You can act and make a difference. A difference that will be remembered by generations to come. Or you can choose to do nothing.
President Bush's visit to India has brought the story of India to the fore of global attention like never before, and opponents of enlightened U.S. - Indian interests are out in force and trying to change the opinions of individual Congressmen and Senators. We cannot afford to let them scuttle the visionary path of U.S. - India relations. Those who oppose the civil nuclear deal oppose the rise and development of India.
We urge you to act. We urge you to act by signing the following petition to U.S. Congress.
The U.S. and India have resolved to progress on civil nuclear power cooperation between the two countries on March 2, 2006, during President Bush's visit to India. This agreement requires certain laws to be changed and amended in the U.S. Congress, for which the Bush administration will soon approach the Congress. The Congress has to give its approval to the deal. By signing this petition you will convey to the Congress that you strongly support this deal.
USINPAC has been working in support of civil nuclear cooperation since its beginning stages, including meeting with key Members of Congress in both the House and Senate, and also senior officials from India, in support of this cooperation. By signing this petition you will add significantly to U.S. - India relations.
A La Mesa Directiva de la Plaza de la "Herencia Mexicana," al Concilio de la Ciudad de San José, y a otros que les corresponda:
El día primero de Septiembre, un pequeño grupo improvisado de representantes de varias organizaciones se reunieron con Marcela Davison Aviles, directora ejecutiva de la Plaza, al darse cuenta de que se planeaba tener al fundador del grupo "cazamigrantes" Minutemen, en un panel de discusión con el presidente del partido demócrata Art Torres en el 16 de Septiembre, día de "independencia" de México.
Después de muchas voces de grave preocupación, el foro fue al final movido al Commonwealth Club en San Francisco. En respuesta a nuestra preocupación, Aviles astutamente concedió una entrevista al periódico de habla ingles, Mercury News, quejándose que había sido intimidada para que cancelara el foro con amenazas de violencia mientras ella esquivaba a Celina Rodríguez, una reportera de habla español. Corto tiempo después el Commonwealth Club pospuso el foro solamente para anunciar recientemente que la Plaza resumiria su plan para tener el foro otra vez en Noviembre. Varios miembros de "Save Our State" (Salva Nuestro Estado -- una pandilla de minutemensos, nazis del la organización "Stormfront," así como aliados que han llevado acabo varias protestas en el sur de Califaztlan) han agitado la idea de atender el foro con o sin Simcox como resultado de su caprichosa publicidad.
Tal costumbre de repugnante negligencia y falta de respeto para nuestra gente no puede quedar inadvertido. Esta no es la primera vez que la señora Aviles ha ejercido tal conducta - en una forma conspirada ella paró un circulo sagrado de danza mitotiliztli para evitar que llevaran acabo su ceremonia semanal. Acaso ella ejecutaría las mismas tácticas si esta hubiera sido una misa Católica?
En espíritu de aquellos que luchan por llegar aquí - vivos o muertos - le decimos a la Plaza de la "Herencia Mexicana" y al concilio de la ciudad de San José: ¡YA BASTA!
Denunciamos enérgicamente a la supuesta "Plaza De La Herencia Mexicana" por estar agrediendo a la comunidad Mexicana al abrir sus puertas a los "cazamigrantes" Minutemen.
DENUNCIALOS POR MEDIO DE ESTA PETICION PARA QUE SEPAN ESTOS VENDIDOS QUE NUESTR@S HERMAN@S EN LUCHA TAMBIEN TENEMOS VOZ Y FUERZA DE VOLUNTAD PARA SALIRNOS ADELANTE!!!
Tal personas como Aviles no están en ninguna posicion para ser vocero del pueblo, y mucho menos de la "herencia Mexicana."
¡Que Aviles renuncie su puesto ahora!
!!Tlazohkamati y Mexihcah Tiahui!!
(Para mas información, visite la pagina yaoyopa.anahuac.org/esp.html; aquellos que van a llenar la petición -- sus datos personales permanecerían fuera de vista pública.)
On September 1, a small ad-hoc group representing various organizations met with Marcela Davison Aviles, executive director of the "Mexican Heritage" Plaza, upon learning that a plan was in the works to have Minuteman founder, Chris Simcox, engage in an on-site panel discussion with Democratic Party chairman Art Torres on the 16th of September, Mexican "Independence" Day. After much voicing of grave concern, the forum was ultimately moved to the Commonwealth Club venue in San Francisco.
In response to our concerns, Aviles craftily granted an interview to the English-language Mercury News claiming she had been bullied into canceling the forum with threats of violence, while she dodged a Spanish-language reporter. Shortly thereafter, the Commonwealth Club postponed the forum only to announce recently that the Plaza will resume their plan to host the forum again in November. Several members of Save Our State (an active gang of MinuteKlansmen, Stormfront nazis and allies alike who have carried out several protests in Southern Califaztlan) have churned the idea of attending the forum with or with Simcox, as a result of her capricious publicity.
Such a pattern of gross negligence and disrespect for our people must not remain unaccounted for, as this is NOT the first time she has exhibited such behavior. In a conspired fashion, she stopped a sacred Mexihca mitotiliztli circle last year from carrying out their weekly ceremony. Would she have executed the same divide and conquer tactics had this been a Catholic mass?
In the spirit of those in struggle to make it here - dead or alive - we say to the MHP board and the San Jose City Council: enough is enough!
We firmly denounce the "Mexican Heritage" Plaza for having aggressed the Mexican@ community upon opening its doors to the MinuteKlan!
DENOUNCE THESE SELLOUT TACTICS BY WAY OF THIS PETITION!! LET THEM KNOW THAT OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN STRUGGLE ALSO HAVE A VOICE AND THE INTERAL WILL TO PREVAIL!!
The likes of Aviles do not represent our "Mexican Heritage" and therefore are in no position to speak on our behalf. Aviles must resign now!
(Visit yaoyopa.anahuac.org/eng.html for more information; those signing the petition need not to fear, your (private) information will remain out of public view.)
On July 13, 2003, at 10:34 p.m., Palo
Alto Police Department (PAPD) rookie
Craig Lee drove his police car up to
59-year-old Albert Hopkins, who was
sitting in his parked car on Oxford
Avenue near the intersection of the El
Camino Real in Palo Alto. Lee asked
Mr. Hopkins for identification. Mr.
Hopkins did not initially give his
name, but later confirmed his identity
and his Palo Alto address.
When PAPD rookie Michael Kan stopped
his police car nearby, Lee spoke to
Kan. Kan walked over and ordered Mr.
Hopkins out of his car, and tried to
pull him out. Kan and Lee repeatedly
hit Mr. Hopkins with their batons,
while Mr. Hopkins tried to ward off
blows. Kan and Lee also doused him
extensively with pepper spray. Mr.
Hopkins was overcome, temporarily
blinded, handcuffed, and transported
to the hospital where he was treated
for body injuries, and a swelling near
PAPD launched an immediate
investigation, which culminated in Kan
and Lee being charged with felony
assault and misdemeanor battery by a
Peace Officer. During the criminal
trial, all of the senior officers
that arrived on the scene that night
testified that they were concerned
that Kan and Lee could not provide a
reason for arresting Mr. Hopkins, and
so there seemed to be no justification
for use of force.
Presented with a strong case against
the two rookies, 8 jurors were certain
Kan and Lee were guilty: a 2-1 margin
favoring conviction. Despite all this,
Kan and Lee are being returned to
their jobs (after a plea deal let them
off with a mere $250 fine), and we are
told: "it's time to put it to rest and
We say there can be no rest until our
leaders realize it's time for Kan and
Lee to move on.
This petition arises not from malice
but the desire to safeguard the
community, as we strongly believe:
1. They are not fit for the job. As a
result of their beating of Albert
Hopkins on July 13 2003, and despite
the shocking deal that drastically
reduced the charges, the fact remains
that Officers Kan and Lee each pleaded
'no contest' to a criminal charge of
an act of illegal public violence
while on duty.
Yet, we have not seen Officers Kan and
Lee publicly take responsibility for
their misconduct. Instead, their court
testimony blamed the victim of their
criminal violence - who was not
arrested for any crime - while
belittling the response of their
supervisors that night. Does this
behavior reflect the discipline and
respect for the law that is
fundamentally required of law
enforcement officers? Or does it
indicate a profound employment
mismatch - that cannot be overcome
with any amount of retraining?
2. They cannot serve the interests of
the Palo Alto community. As reflected
in our budget, the safety of the
community is Palo Alto's highest
priority. As the locus of Silicon
Valley and home of Stanford
University, Palo Alto's community
includes guests welcomed from around
the world, that expect and are
entitled to the universal human right
and Constitutional protection) of
freedom from arbitrary arrest or
detention and unreasonable use of
Given its profound authority, our
police force must not include those
who trample the rights of those they
serve, while rejecting the good
judgment of those they serve under.
3. Continuing their employment poses
unacceptable risks. Studies on police
misconduct, such as the Christopher
Commission report (an examination of
LAPD four months after the King
beating), have found that the heart of
the problem is failure to act upon the
few officers using excessive force.
Those officers frequently then go on
to become repeat offenders, who are
responsible for many of the cases that
cost the city in civil suits.
Palo Alto has already paid a $250,000
settlement for Kan and Lee's use of
force. How much would a jury penalize
the city in the next claim that may
result from their use of force, given
that the city was aware of the risk
and chose to ignore it? With budget
revenue rapidly shrinking, how are
such expenses justified?
Therefore, we call on the City Manager
to immediately take this step toward
freeing Palo Alto from the risks and
stigma of brutal injustice that we
believe Officers Kan and Lee's tenure
here has brought us, and begin
restoring Palo Alto as a community
united in its concern for public
safety and human rights.
The supporters of Kilmarnock Football Club who have signed this petition wish for the removal of the manager at Rugby Park, Jim Jefferies.
There have been polls on this issue run on unofficial fans' sites - all of which show overwhelmingly that the fans' wish the manager to leave.
The most recent polls gave the following results:
17th February 2005 - 86 Supporters polled
JJ MUST GO 59 (68.6%)
UNDECIDED 19 (22.09%)
JJ MUST STAY 8 (9.3%)
3rd March 2005 - 196 supporters polled
JJ should GO now 131 (66.84%)
JJ should stay 65 (33.16%)
There is also a poll being run currently which started on 10th April 2005 - this can be viewed at: http://killiefc.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=16990
The overall results will be known towards the end of next week, however 52 supporters have been polled so far and the results at the moment are:
JJ Must Go - 49 (94.23%)
JJ Must Stay - 3 (5.77%)
Many supporters felt that despite their personal views, the manager deserved support until the target of a top 6 place was no longer achievable. Now that Kilmarnock are unable to get into the Top 6 - most feel it is now time for him to leave - and feel the manager could leave with integrity intact if he were to do the decent thing and resign from his position. If this were not to happen within the next fortnight - the fans wish the club to take the appropriate action and relieve the manager of his duties at the club ASAP.
Discontent has been growing among the fans since the Christmas period, but the 3-1 defeat by Hearts in the Scottish Cup was the last straw for many.
The clubs own target of a top 6 place has now not been met for the past 2 seasons - this is simply not good enough. The fans realise that there are financial pressures put upon the management team and the club as a whole - which is constantly being cited as a reason for our poor run of results - but feel that the current position is unacceptable. Aberdeen, Motherwell and Hibernian all work with small squads like our own - mostly made up of young players - and they all have financial restrictions put upon them also - however all of these teams are sitting above us in the SPL - so having a small squad of young, inexperienced players is no longer a viable excuse - especially as this squad have largely been together now for the past 3 years.
The manager has been in charge now for three seasons and things seem to be getting gradually worse. We have an extremely talented young squad of players - but unfortunately the management team is not currently getting the best from them.
The following shows a list of where the club has finished in the Premier since 1997:
Season 97-98 4th
Season 98-99 4th
Season 99-00 9th
Season 00-01 4th
Season 01-02 5th
Season 02-03 4th
Season 03-04 10th
Season 04-05 8th
Jim Jefferies first full season in charge was 2002-03 - when we apparently "over-achieved" - despite having finished in the top 5 in 4 of the previous 5 seasons. Since then manager has totally changed the squad and it is now 'his' team - we have finished 10th last season and are currently sitting 8th - however on current form could quite easily finish 10th or 11th.
There are many reasons why we think this action needs to be undertaken straight away - however we have tried to keep this factual rather than resorting to too many personal opinions - as that would not give a true opinion of the full fan base.
Kilmarnock have lost support every year for the past five years. From an average of over 11,500 in 1998-99 to an average of under 7,000 now. The average attendances are only going in one direction at the moment and many fans feel that attendances will not rise until a change of manager is implemented. Many fans have openly stated they are unhappy with the current management team and will not return to Rugby Park at all until this changes - no matter how well the team are doing.
We have started this petition in order to show our feelings towards this situation in a peaceful manner - HOWEVER - if the fans' opinion is not taken seriously and a change of manager is not implemented very soon, a more organised approach in the form of protests before and after home matches shall be taken. Many fans are voting with their feet at the moment - and to ignore the club's most loyal customers is going to see the attendances slump to a new low not seen for over a decade.
With survival in the SPL looking likely and being in the 'bottom 6' - the fans feel as though there is very little left to play for this season but pride. Unfortunately 6 points from a possible 30 in our last 10 SPL matches is simply not good enough - and if this sort of form continues we may yet get dragged into the relegation dogfight - which is why the supporters feel a change must be made NOW. In our last 12 games - we have only achieved 2 wins and 1 draw - with 6 of the 12 matches being played at home. During these games we have only kept a clean sheet ONCE, and have failed to score in 6 of these games. In these 12 matches - we have conceded 21 goals and only scored 10 (3 of which were scored against dundee united - which was also the only game in which we kept a clean sheet - against the bottom side in the SPL).
To reiterate - The supporters of Kilmarnock Football Club who have signed this petition wish for the removal of the manager, Jim Jefferies.
If you wish to show your support for this petition - please fill in your details and please give your correct email address so that your support can be counted (we need the proper email address in order that your support can be digitally signed - please check your junk mail folder if you think you have not got an email). Obviously it is better if you include your home address also - but we have kept this optional as we realise not everyone is comfortable in giving out this information.
This petition will finish on the 24th April - thanks in advance for any support. Please feel free to send a link to this petition to the club in order that they realise this has your support.

Nous, loyaux fans de Madonna, désirons démontrer notre support à la parution d'une compilation DVD de tous les clips de Madonna.
Nous pensons que Madonna est l'une des artistes les plus populaires et pionnière dans le domaine des vidéos clips. Cette parution de ce DVD-compilation serait une pièce importante dans l'Histoire de Madonna mais aussi dans celle de la Musique en général.
Beaucoup d'autres artistes ont déjà lancés de telles compilations (Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran, Janet Jackson...) et nous sommes persuadés que ceci serait un succès sans précédents et dans le meilleur intérêt de tous. Nous signons tous ici en support à cette requête.

Exactly like the auhor of this petition I support the thesis that a Skype-Plugin for Trillian would be an enormous profit for the Community. Further am I the opinion that a Skype Plugin for Trillian would open the Skype service for a further large user-group, wich will lead to a direct growth of the amount of skype users.
Genauso wie der Autor dieser Petition unterstütze ich die These,
dass ein Skype-Plugin für Trillian ein enormer Gewinn für die Community wäre.
Weiterhin bin ich der Meinung, dass ein Skype-Plugin für Trillian
den Skype Dienst einer weiteren großen Personengruppe zugänglich
machen und somit zu einem direkt Wachstum des Skype Dienst führen wird.
This petition began with My own husband being saught for child support. My husband pays his child support. Has done so for years. However, monies have unexplicably disappeared and have gone unaccounted for by the office of child support enforcement. My husband has a court order to see his son -he's been withheld for 7 YEARS now. Local and state police and officials, the custodial mother, and childsupport, have refused to uphold the order. We have been taunted by all to try and get the money to fight them on it.
My husband has no criminal record, pays his support, maintains a job and second family. Child support took his license making it impossible for us to get a car to even try to visit. My husband and are only guilty of being poor and loving our son (my stepson). Now I have the chance for a congressional inquiry into child support if I can come up with enough evidence and supporters. So, please. Sign this petition. Pass it on. This same petition is on Petitionpetition.com under, nearly, the same name. "stop rampant child support injustices and policies" ... sign it. pass it on.

Did you know that (as of 6/98) BLM "official" figures show that there are only about 42,000 wild horses and burros (approximately 35,000 horses & 7,000 burros) left on public lands (in 10 western states - confined by law to Herd Management Allotments or "HMA's")? However, HorseAid places this figure much lower (see our "BLM Report Card", below for more information).
The Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act of 1971 (the "Wild Horse Annie Act") declared that wild free-roaming horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West (in essence, an American "heritage"), and require protection under U.S. Federal law ("Congress finds and declares that wild free-roaming horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West; that they contribute to the diversity of lifeforms within the nation and enrich the lives of the American people." -- December 15, 1971 Congressional Declaration). Yet, there are currently less wild horses and burros on public lands in the Western states (their traditional ancestral range) than there were in 1971, when the Act was passed (approximately 172,000 horses and burros have been "adopted" since the adoption program was initiated).
The Bureau of Land Management is responsible for the protection of these animals, and yet, sadly and tragically, it may be this same agency which is responsible for their "fast disappearing from the American West". By revising policy at will, and circumventing the law when it suits them, some individuals within the Bureau of Land Management are bringing about the total destruction of this great American heritage largely in the interest of, and for, personal gain or to save the "integrity" of the agency itself Criminal investigations by several Bureau of Land Management law enforcement agents that would have exposed illegal activity in the Wild Horse and Burro Program, have been obstructed by numerous BLM managers and employees. If something is not done, and done soon -- we stand a very good chance of forever losing this "living symbol of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West".
A reporter chased the perennial allegations of BLM malfeasance by tracing paper trails, something animal advocates have not done on any comparable scale. "Using freeze-brand numbers and computer records," "the AP traced more than 57 former BLM horses sold to slaughterhouses since September. Eighty percent were less than 10 years old and 25% were less than five years old." "The AP matched computer records of horse adoptions with a computerized list of federal employees and found that more than 200 current BLM employees have adopted more than 600 wild horses and burros." Mendoza got some eye-popping quotes, too. "Asked about the AP's findings," she wrote, It is conceded that about 90% of the horses rounded up go to slaughter."
"Using the BLM's computerized records maintained in Denver and obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the AP found that 32,774 of all adopted horses and burros--20%--remain untitled. Legally, they are still federal property." The 57 wild horses sold to slaughter in approximately four months was not a greater number than go to slaughter from many individual riding stables, racetracks, and ranches. That 90% of the BLM horses eventually go to slaughter, would just reflect the fate of most horses from any source who go to auction. "While it is common for old or lame horses to go to slaughter," "nearly all former BLM horses sent to slaughter are young and healthy."
Yet dozens of horse rescue groups from coast to coast stay busy buying and adopting out other young, healthy horses they find at slaughter auctions. The fact is, horse overpopulation seems to be as much a reality as pet overpopulation, and although many people are willing to adopt a horse for a while, most quickly find themselves unable to keep up with the ongoing costs and demand on time. Wild horses, precisely because they are wild, require particular effort to turn into good riding steeds. Since federal budget cuts killed most of the prison-based projects that formerly either "gentled" or "broke" wild horses to saddle, the horses available for adoption have been more problematic, less suitable for the average rider. They can't compete with abundant ready-to-ride horses from domestic oversupply, even at the BLM adoption price of $125, 11% of the average cost to the government of rounding up, vaccinating, freezebranding, and adopting out a wild horse.
Adopters "can get lame or old horses for as little as $25, or even for free," , referring to the fee-waiver program the BLM uses to rid itself of horses nobody wants. "After holding the horses for a year, the adopters are free to sell them for slaughter, typically receiving $700 per animal. The government spends $1,100. The adopter can make $575 or more."
In other news...Nine young mares that survived the barren deserts of the West died of stress induced by their capture and a 1,000-mile truck ride to Colorado.
The horses died of "capture myopathy,'' a condition in wild animals triggered by anxiety of capture, according to test results released Tuesday by the Bureau of Land Management.
Forty mares and 10 studs were loaded into a truck Feb. 17 (1998) at the BLM's center in Palomino Valley north of here for the 24-hour trip to a similar facility south of Denver.
Nine horses arrived showing signs of distress. None survived.
Handling of the animals is a topic being addressed by a new advisory board looking into issues surrounding the estimated 44,000 wild horses and burros that roam free across 11 Western states.
"The advisory board will be looking into ways to minimize stress, whether on the range, during gathers or as they move through the adopt-a-horse program,'' said Robin Lohnes, a board member and the executive director of the American Horse Protection Association in Washington, D.C.
The 26-year-old adoption program was intended by Congress to reduce the number of animals competing with ranchers' cattle for scant forage on federal lands. Horses are rounded up into corrals and put up for adoption.
The establishment of the advisory panel followed reports last year by The Associated Press that thousands of animals adopted through a federal program were sold for slaughter with BLM employees among those who profited.
The AP also reported that the BLM lost track of about 32,000 adopted animals and that agency officials gave false information to Congress.
People need to be aware and more responsible for the heritage that is being killed. Our goverments need to make an amendment to protect not just the wild horses, but all of our horses, before it is too late. Horses are always going to be here, if we take care of them. Besides, who can not smile when they see horses grazing peacfully in a rolling green pasture? If we don't do something now, that sight will only be a fading memory.
Please sign this petition. It will get send to our governments in hope they will write and pass an amendment that will protect our wild horses. Also send this petition to your friends and let's see how many signatures we can get. Anyone interested in helping me, contact me, the author, and let's make history!
"...so that all horses and ponies may lead a
full and productive life, free from pain and abuse."
This is a new petition that the people of Neopia are signing to put how many secret avatars and which ones they have in their user lookups. If you would like to help get this done please sign your name and your user names! So Adam Powell/Neopets Staff may see that this is not a matter of one person trying to get attention...
As of Fall 2003 semester, Professor Binta Colley, a fine and outstanding professor of philosophy, education and other related courses faces the possibility of losing her job.
In our education system today, we cannot afford to lose professors with exceptional teaching skills because they are devoted to helping their students gain great knowledge and love for the subject they are embarking.
Professor Binta Colley is one of the most outstanding student-oriented teacher York College or America has today and unfortunately, she was informed that she could be out of a job base on how she teaches and grades the students.
I had the opportunity of taking one of her philosophy classes, and it is unlike any other class that I have taken before. Not only does she use the Socratic method of teaching, but she promotes critical thinking in all areas and also provokes exceptional learning and application out of all her students. No student is left behind. If for any reason a student is experiencing difficulties in any area, Professor Colley is available by phone, office hours, virtual classroom, and email to assist each student in all areas. If by chance she is unable to help you, then professor Colley directs you to the appropriate place.
Great teachers in all areas and levels of teaching should be cherished, appreciated and awarded. If any thing should be done to her, an award should be handed to her. LET US PROTECT OUR HARD WORKING PROFESSORS. KEEP PROFESSOR BINTA COLLEY ON BOARD ACTIVELY!!!
The RIAA, or the Record Industry Association of America controls a good portion of the record industry. Over the years, they are pushing for laws that would prevent them from downloading anything "Copyrighted". This is a problem because the ways they pursue their goals are unconstitutional, and unfair. Ever since the AHRA was enacted, every CD-R has a hidden tax added into the price, approx 2% of the manufacturers sales. This is supposed to go to the artists, but instead, the tax goes to the RIAA. The worst part of it is not one artist that was paid a cent of the money. 4% is set aside for non-featured artists, of the remainder 40% for the featured artist and 60% for the labels. To date not one artist who has received one cent of this money. (Source: RIAA website. Every CD recorder also has a $2.00 surcharge added onto the price, of which goes directly to the RIAA. This all jacks up prices at retail stores, which is a problem because not everybody wants to pay $15 - $20 for a CD. The NRAA also pushes for acts and laws to prevent people from downloading MP3 files, or anything free. They recently sued college students, and wanted them jailed for downloading MP3s on their computer. THEY ARE JUST TEENAGERS! Why not go after Nintendo for putting Sonic the Hedgehog on the Gamecube with this logic then? Here are some examples of what they want:
(1.) Hacking into the computer (which is also ILLEGAL), and knocking you off line if they find you downloading MP3s, and disable your system (2.) Using software that would go into a computer, and deletes the MP3s (3.) Suing the individual school students, or college students (4.) Pushing for laws that would make all computers be installed with spy-ware that would prevent people from downloading MP3s, or other files.
This is a clear violation of our 1st and 4th amendment rights. These laws would also be a heavy violation of the 4th amendment, which states " We the undersigned feel that we should be able, under certain guidelines, be able do download files freely. Ideas ranging from sites that only have MP3s from artists who allow this practice, or a site where a ONE TIME ONLY fee would be paid, and the persons would have access to all the files he/she wanted, and the best thing would be that the money would go directly to the artists themselves. We also feel that the artists who produce the music should get most of the money, and not the recording industries. With new cheaper, yet better quality technology, the artists of music would be able to produce their music & music videos, and release them on the web without having to loose money to the greedy recording industries. To conclude, we feel that the RIAA goes too far, and hurts themselves more than people who share MP3s on the net. We might need some regulating on the MP3 scene, but lobbying unconstitutional laws by big, corrupt industries, and arresting the people who can't possibly pay up charges is the wrong way to go. Please listen to our plea, and do something about the RIAA today before our constitutional rights and freedoms are trampled on by greed and power.
School is hard. It causes pain, stress, suicide, death, confusion, etc. But stopping it is senseless because it cannot happen. 7 hours however is too long, shouldn't it be more like 4 hours? Why not?

The Leesburg Town Council has proposed an Annexation Plan which will almost double the area of the town, and could allow 6.5 times more commercial space than is currently built in Leesburg.
It will promote rampant overdevelopment, increased population, more cars, congestion and pollution. The Town will lose its istoric character and the natural environment will suffer great losses. Quality of life for residents will go down.
Though the Town has claimed that the annexation plan offers many benefits, such as increased revenues and new roads, these claims are based on misguided expectations, and myths.
The Town Council's economic projections for annexation are based on commercial development equal to half of Tyson's Corner. This would increase residential growth pressure, and result in higher taxes.
More town-controlled land won't lure high tech offices to Leesburg, but it is likely to scatter commercial development and contribute to further transportation problems.
Added neighborhoods will pay added Town taxes, with a questionable increase in services.
New roads don't solve congestion problems, but instead lead to more development and new congestion. The Town will have to convert rural land to suburban development so that developer money can build a new outer Bypass built. Instead, the existing Bypass needs to be fixed to work properly.
Most importantly, the Town's Annexation Plan contradicts what local residents want--slower growth. Annexation will increase growth pressures as land speculators look for profits.
The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has been actively working to respond to local citizens' call for slower growth. This Plan is designed to overturn those efforts in the Leesburg area.
If you support slower growth in Loudoun and Leesburg, please sign this petition.
In P&G's cosmetic & household product testing, caustic chemicals are forced into rabbits' eyes & applied to their raw, shaved skin. Laboratory workers lock the rabbits in restraining devices so they are unable to move while chemicals burn into their eyes & skin.
The rabbits are given no sedatives or pain killers to ease their suffering. They sometimes break their necks & backs in a desperate struggle to get away.
Those who survive are used again ... until they are finally killed.
P&G's innocent victims include rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, & ferrets.
Even thought these tests are not required by law.
P&G insists on continuing this torture.
P&G claims to be a world leader in researching humane testing methods.
But the reality is that P&G spends more money in seven days on advertising than it has spent in 11 years on alternatives to painful & lethal animal tests.
These cruel & unnecessary experiments are paid for with profits from the sales of P&G products.
Every bottle of Pantene or Dawn,
every tube of Crest, every packet of Tampax tampons, every box of Tide, Bounce or Bold, every roll of Bounty,
& every can of IAMS or Eukanuba that is purchased means more money for painful experiments.
We think you would agree-- going without P&G products is a small price to pay to end animal suffering.
Fortunately, there are many safe, effective & humane alternatives to P&G's Tide of Torture.
Hundreds of companies develop, manufacture & sell safe consumer products without animal testing.
They use newer, more effective methods such as human cell cultures, chemical tests & computer models or simply use the thousands of ingredients that have been in use for years.
Million of Americans choose to purchase their consumer products from companies that do not harm or kill animals.
By buying cruelty-free, you support the growing trend toward kinder & more effective saftey testing. You send a message to P&G that when they hurt animals, they hurt their profits.
Your purchasing decisions make a difference!
P&G says animal tests provide product saftey.
"As an emergency room physician who has treated poisoning & exposures to dangerous products, I disagree with the contention that animal tests are necessary to determine the safety of cosmetic & household products.
Animal tests does not protect consumers from unsafe products. In my 15 years as an emergency room physician, I have never found the results of an animal test to be of any benefit in guiding the treatment of patients who have been poisoned.
Animal tests provide only the illusion of safety, because of the significant anatomical & physiological difference between animals & humans.
I call upon Procter & Gamble to join the ever-growing list of responsible companies that have declared an immediate moratorium on animal-based product testing."
