START A PETITION

The son of a Care2 member has died.  He was shackled by both hands and feet to a steel table, naked, for 4 days, with no help.  They sought to punish him - and they did.  They punished him to death.

This type of prisoner restraint is considered to be Torture by the American Medical Association.  I am asking that you sign the attached petition which seeks to abolish the use of such restraints on prisoners.  The policy and its practice is inhumane, and is used to punish prisoners and the mentally ill.  This child died for no reason.  Pleas join me in signing this petition to stop this practice.

Thank you.......Elizabeth N

For Timothy Joe Souders 11:29 AM


Hello I want to thank this group for your support of Timothy's Story. At this time  I'm  asking  for  help getting  Signatures on this Petition...

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/993275606

The Petition is asking for the removal of Restraints in Prisons  and Jails.
And I'm also asking you to help  me push this Petition,  put it on your web pages, tell all your Friends.

I have a meeting with some Press members on November 17 and I would Love to have a 1,000 signatures by then.
The Judge in the Class Action Suit was going to demand that these Restraints be taken out of the System, but back down after a call from the head of Michigan's Department of Corrections.

Thank-you  for  all your help and Prayers ....  
Please continue to note Timmy's Stories this is just the Start  to a Long hard Road, and we want to see change and  Justice ......

My Son Died alone and Tortured... But he did not Die in Vain Or Forgotten
