Ten years in prison, plus ten years probation for each of the Moulder brothers. More details to follow...

The claim of "petitions dont work" AGAIN??? Makes ya wonder what the motive is in saying that... "like ok nobody sign any more petition, ok!! That way no one can petition against me" <basic sarcasm>
Feel free to cross post everywhere:
Here are some examples of successful petition/campaigns. Im just copying it from an email I sent to someone who said they were useless.
I can give you several examples which were successful in the past. One of the most prominant is the Hawthorn Elephants case. www.elephants.com
Petition VIctory! Brandon Chandler is in jail!!
Keep Polar Bears out of tropical circuses!
The Denali Wolf Buffer Zone petition
The Alaska Game Board was just a week away from deciding on whether to create a buffer zone around Denali National Park to protect the park wolves that wandered outside of the park's boundaries. Activist Dorothy Keeler jumped into motion and established a petition on PetitionSite.com. Within a week she had collected nearly 1,000 signatures. She delivered the stack of petition signatures to the Game Board, helping to convince them to create the buffer zone. Today, the wolves are protected by the buffer zone, thanks in part to the efforts of Dorothy and all the people who signed the petition!
Note this post for future reference
My favorite success

Animal Advocates Declare Victory Over Starbucks
Coffee Giant Agrees to End Financial Sponsorship of Rodeos
After taking hits from a national anti-cruelty campaign spearheaded by Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK), coffee conglomerate Starbucks has agreed to create a corporate policy that will end their direct financial support for rodeos. This comes as great news to animal advocates and animal protection groups everywhere. IDA is proud to have played a supportive role in the struggle to hold Starbucks accountable for promoting animal cruelty. As part of our joint campaign, IDA and SHARK co-coordinated several successful San Francisco Bay Area and Portland, Oregon demonstrations against the coffee giant's rodeo support. We would like to congratulate SHARK and everyone involved in the campaign on a job well done.
While agreeing to no longer take out ads that financially support rodeos, Starbucks still plans to give away free beverages at these inhumane events. This decision lends their tacit support to the rodeo, and amounts to a de facto form of advertising that will continue to taint their self-styled image as a responsible corporation. Nonetheless, because Starbucks has agreed to withdraw direct financial support from the rodeo industry, SHARK will discontinue actively campaigning against the company. The group has agreed to recall from the campaign trail its "Tiger" video truck, which is equipped with four large-screen TVs. SHARK has used the truck to bring graphic rodeo video footage to Starbucks shops in fifteen different metropolitan areas between Chicago and Seattle over the past four months.
Because Starbucks continues to condone animal cruelty by giving rodeo spectators free coffee, SHARK will maintain its anti-Starbucks website, www.buckstarbucks.com, and discourage compassionate people from buying their coffee for as long as the company associates itself with the rodeo. "We think Starbucks' customers deserve to know what Starbucks considers acceptable treatment of animals," explains SHARK president Steve Hindi. "A truly ethical and socially responsible company would not be involved with rodeos or any form of animal abuse in any way whatsoever."
What You Can Do
Please write a short, polite letter to Starbucks thanking them for no longer financially supporting rodeos and urging them not to donate its products to rodeos.

Lisa, I just signed it. I've signed others like it, too. I'm sorry to say that I doubt that it will ever happen in the near future, though - maybe not even in my lifetime. I was in "The System" from the time I was 9 (after my father died from his final stroke) until the day I walked out - my 18th birthday (November of 1973). Not much has changed since then... especially in foster "homes." As with the states, it's "all about the Benjamins" ($). If they trained and/or hired better, more educated workers, the county would have to pay them more. And you know how stingy the government is with money for people in the U.S. - Bush & Company would rather send it to places like Iraq, along with sending our people to die there. It's the "haves" against the "have nots." If we were a celebrity (ala Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, etc.) we would have the money to pay high-dollar attorneys. But you don't see any of THEM getting their children taken away, anyway, do you? Would WE (the "have nots") be allowed to dangle our baby over a high railing in public (with plenty of photo and media coverage, no less) and get away with it??? I'm if you believe we would.
BTW, I would never even THINK of dangling my cat over a railing like that, never mind my baby (in case anybody wondered)!
Justice is served!
The Sentence Is In...
And.. theres just something about when a petition is mentioned in the news stories.. sheesh - thats all it takes sometimes....
Similarly, two online petitions started after the first trial of the Moulders now have about 25,000 signatures with more coming every day. The petitions boast names from Brazil, the Netherlands, Germany, Israel and Australia. Linda Zotter of Syracuse, N.Y., while enduring cancer treatment, took time out to knock on doors and gather signatures for her own personal petition.

Two days after I submitted the petition, which cost me about $65 to print and fax to all contacts, the Zoo announced they would move Maggie, however, it took a few more months and the voice and pocketbook of elephant activist Bob Barker to get the zoo to agree to send Maggie to PAWS Sanctuary in California!
UPDATE - 10-26-07
Maggie will fly our of Anchorage on November 1st, 2007 with the help of the US Air Force and special permission from the Pentagon!

THX 4 input Echo. I would need help I posted new thread to see if I can have 2 authors on the petition, or give my password out to someone to help me, still have to respond to that thread, the reply was only 1 but the ? has been asked before.
Massive public awareness, well governments often shut that down or the individual to try to do anything. I know animal petitions often do quite well here, I am sure this list is quite short on them actually.
I was thinking of Teresa Vaughn, I know she was and is getting things addressed regarding her son Timothy Joe, and going forward making or trying to make changes to the prision systems, I am far to ill and disabled to do that, that is part of why the petition would be done in the first place, one of them any way.
ok, thx again. Sunshine

We launched an 11th hour campaign for more signatures in Pepper's guestbook/petition as they had slowed down after reaching an AMAZING 1,700 plus signatures! They ended up with over 2,000! We managed to get the second guestbook full and a 3rd one started before the Angelman's 7 pm City Council hearing, thanks to everyone everywhere! The story went from being a local news story to being covered nationally and throughout Canada, and via Care2 and email, worldwide! The Angelmans and my family are overcome with gratitude for all the love shown by everyone to one helpless and almost blind little lamb in Lamb Town, USA
This is what it now says on their homepage:
"Pepper gets to stay! Thank you all!

Help please, that link takes me to some closed group
Ill check to see if we can crosspost some...
"We and our allies won half a victory at the G8. We didn't get the binding emissions targets we'd campaigned for. But all the big polluters agreed to one of our central demands – that they begin work this year on a new global treaty to stop catastrophic climate change."
Coming on the heels of the House of Representatives' successful vote to override the veto on Tuesday, today's vote in the Senate makes this critical legislation law over the President's veto, and I can't thank you enough for your support.
Thousands of members of our community signed my petition to the President and emailed their Representatives in Washington in support of the measure, actions that helped us show Congress the widespread support for making necessary investments in our national infrastructure to protect us in the future.
This legislation represents the first comprehensive water resources bill in nearly seven years, which is far too long to go without investments in coastal restoration and stronger levee systems, protections that will significantly reduce the chance of catastrophic damages from future hurricanes.
Thanks to your help, we now have authorization for a 72-mile system of levees and floodwalls to protect Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes from storms sweeping in from the Gulf of Mexico; nearly $2 billion for Louisiana coastal restoration; funds to strengthen New Orleans-area levees; and $100 million for hurricane protection in Jean Lafitte and lower Jefferson Parish.
Thank you again for your support; I can't tell you how much it means to the nation and to the people of Louisiana.
I need someone's assiatnce to write a petition.i'm not a writer.I desperately need help!
Thanks for listening.
I sent this message out over myspace. I think the success in a petition is of cause in getting it out but also in getting people to believe that they can make a difference. First they have also got to realize that they are important and that what they have to say is important. Once you do that you've got yourself a movement.
"You just need to be a flea against injustice. Enough committed fleas biting strategically can make even the biggest dog uncomfortable and transform even the biggest nation". These are the words of Marian Wright Edelman.
"A Little Rebellion Now and Then Is A Good Thing for America", the words of Thomas Jefferson.
"Thou shalt not be a victim. Thou shalt not be a perpetrator. Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander", this quote can be found on the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.
The bottom line is we control our destiny when we choose to act. We help the destiny of others when we choose to act on their behalf. We ask that you act on behalf of children that have been abused and those that may be abused because of a very corrupt or incompetent judicial system. We ask that you consider signing one or both of the petitions attached to this site and to pass this message on to all of your family and friends.
Lets be that flea that makes the big dog of child sexual abuse more than uncomfortable.
Peace and Blessings to All,
NOTE TO ALL MEMBERS: Due to the length of this thread, we are closing it and starting a new one, which will be red-pinned to the board.
