Last year while the Phonesavanh's baby boy Bounkham (Bou Bou) was sleeping, a Georgia swat team burst into the bedroom and set off a flash-bang grenade that landed in his crib, severely burning his face and torso. Now GA refuses to pay for his surgeries.

This is why we need Universal Health Care so we don't have to fight the State or anyone else to get the medical care we need no matter how it has happened.

These no knock policies need to end and we must return to protect and serve not the military police coming into our homes. This war on drugs is a war on us and looking for drugs should not take away anyone's rights under the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

That innocent children continue to be shot, scared out of their wits, loose their parents with these over zealous invasions into people's homes is sickening and harks to other Countries that became Fascist. When innocent children are being killed in the name of saving children or saving us......we are going down the wrong road.

All 3 Petitions signed. This should have everyone furious.

Frikkin cops. This baby didn't deserve this, the cops weren't paying attention, didn't do their "due diligence" and injured this baby. Now they won't pay? Where's their humanity? Where's their sense of community? Where are their ethics? Now we know for sure the cops just don't care, they'll do whatever they want and never pay for the consequences of their actions. They're worse than terrorists.

Signed this one and Freya's first one posted today. The other one I signed Aug. 28 and it is almost to 16,000, so be sure to sign it if you haven't. And, Dandelion, of course you are right that we need universal health care, but these rogue police should still be held accountable.

I agree Joanne, is why I said this "no knock" has to end and we need to get back to protect and serve. Having a system that will offer immediate or ongoing medical attention does not absolve any wrong doing, but it does allow for those who need the medical care to get it while the rest of it is being sorted out. The two shouldn't impinge on the other.

Whether the police were right or wrong, and in this case wrong, but in the meantime, while the courts do their thing, this child should receive medical care. Under a Universal Health Care system he would, and we wouldn't be begging the State to do the correct thing. I'm tired of signing petitions for our Human Rights to be granted or acknowledged in a Country that claims it is all about Human Rights.

Even when the baby receives Medical Care, and it looks like Reconstructive Surgery will be needed -
what a HORRIBLE TRAUMA for a small child! This will be marked on his Consciousness forever - with who knows what results to his Mental Health. An absolute Nightmare! I hope his care is Loving as well as Medical - to at least partially heal his Psyche...
