(Copied from previous thread.)

On February 26, our son Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked to a family member's home from a convenience store where he had just bought some candy. He was only 17 years-old. Trayvon's killer, George Zimmerman, admitted to police that he shot Trayvon in the chest. Zimmerman, the community's self appointed "neighborhood watch leader," called the police to report a suspicious person when he saw Travyon, a young black man, walking from the store. But Zimmerman still hasn't been charged for murdering my son. Trayvon was our hero. At the age 9, Trayvon pulled his father from a burning kitchen, saving his life. He loved sports and horseback riding.

PETITION TO SIGN:

Tell Your Governor: Don't Incentivize Incarceration.

In Virginia, they're offering to buy and run prisons in your state and all across the nation -- but only if states agree to keep the prisons at least 90% full. America's level of incarceration is dangerously high already.

Friends,


Please consider signing the above petition that was sent to me for circulation.  From reading the petition, it seems there are several miscarriages of justice against this man.  Change of venue denied, evidence not being permitted during trial that may indicate innocence and worse, someone has admitted to committing the crimes without the consequences.  Also, Mr. Metcalfe's health is starting to deteriorate, but the criminal justice system is ignoring the medical attention he may desperately need. 


I don't circulate many petitions.  But when it comes to the criminal justice system, most all of you who know me, know how hard I work to get the word out.  If you feel so compelled, a signature to help this  wife get some justice for this poor man, would be greatly appreciated.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Monday ruled by a 5-to-4 vote that officials may strip-search people arrested for any offense, however minor, before admitting them to jails even if the officials have no reason to suspect the presence of contraband.

PETITION TO SIGN, SHARE, CIRCULATE:

CHRISTOPHERS BILL - THE JUVENILE JUSTICE REFORM ACT
  • Target: John Drummond, Senator - South Carolina Legislature, SC Senate
  • Sponsored by: Michael Maloney
Link to Petition:
In SC and other US states, children as young as 10 are being arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced as adults under mandatory sentencing mandates. Children are being sentenced to mandatory terms created to net young people involved in gang violence and the drug trades. Children are being sentenced to life without parole. Often under the influence of prescription drugs, otherwise average and above average children commit unthinkable crimes. These children are then thrown into a court and sentencing system designed for hardcore adult criminals. Mandatory sentencing does not take into consideration the past non-violent social history or the effects strong prescription drugs have on young minds. The results are ruined young lives. We need your support. Please sign this petition and lend your name to the pursuit of Juvenile Justice. http://www.christopherpittman.org/
