This petition is to commend the actions taken by the NSW Police Officers when juvenile delinquents posed a serious risk to public safety.
Around 4am on Saturday the 21st of April 2012 a NSW Police Officer shot two juvenile suspects in Kings Cross in a stolen car that mounted the sidewalk and struck two pedestrians. One of the police officers deployed his firearm to stop the car. The 14 year old driver was hit once in the chest and once in the arm, and the passenger was struck in the neck. The car also had 5 other passengers.
The media has since portrayed the incident as a racial hate crime due to the aboriginal ethnicity of the driver and passengers.
This petition is a direct retaliation to the petition criticizing the ‘brutal’ reaction by police. The matter still remains that the driver was unlicensed, driving a stolen, overloaded car and a serious threat to public safety. Pedestrians were jumping for their lives after the car mounted the curb, police attempted to stop the offending care without force but to no success. The driver deliberately disobeyed police instruction to stop, running over an officer’s foot before hitting two female pedestrians. One of these pedestrians was trapped under the car.
This is not a racial hate crime. The actions of police had no weighting on the ethnicity of the boys. A crime was committed and due force was used. It should not be expect that aboriginal youths receive favorable treatment in the eyes of the law. It is also unreasonable to argue police could have shot out the cars tires instead. Not only is this against police training, but it isn’t a guarantee of stopping the car. It is also noted the pedestrian struck was trapped under the same car. Out of anyone involved, this female pedestrian was the only innocent victim.
As a law abiding citizen I believe the driver and his passengers committed a serious criminal offence, posed a serious hazard to public safety and upon failing to stop when initially directed, waived their rights to police favor. The police officers involved used necessary force to subdue and detain those responsible and had a responsibility to the general population to ensure public safety.
The police officers actions were in the best intentions of the public and his job and career should not be compromised because of it.

When this petition was written, Jericho Cross was nine years old when the Youth Baseball League said that he was banned from playing baseball. The truth was Jericho was an excellent pitcher whose only crime was choosing the team sponsored by Will Power Fitness over the defending team sponsored by one the YBL's administrators. Yes, the decision to ban Jericho from baseball is biased.
What kind of decision is this to ban an excellent player from a league like YBL? It is unjust, unfair and unbelieveable. Gifted players should be playing baseball with everyone else. Anyone who comes across this petition should sign up now and defend the child's right to play baseball.
Here's the whole story:
Every day, literally hundreds of pedestrians, largely made up of Guildford College students and staff, cross Holly Lane at the entrance/exit to Merrist Wood Campus. The area is a blind spot for both motorists and pedestrians and with vehicles often travelling at high speeds, it has become increasingly unsafe.
Guildford College Students' Union are leading this campaign with the full backing of the college and The Principal. The college has a large population of young people from age 14 upwards as well as many students with disabilities and the safety of all is of major concern.

There are 3 cities meeting within 2 miles on one road. County Road 17. They are Excelsior, Shorewood and Chanhassen.
This road will be extending for several miles to become a connecting road to a new Highway 212. The Speed limits on this road are simply illogical. Toward the south side of the road where the road has a median and turning lanes it is 45 miles per hour. To the North side it rapidly changes from 50 mph down to 45 mph down to 30 mph entering another highway called Highway 7.
Where Excelsior is there are many homes that are close together and has driveways to what was for many years a low traffic road. Now that this highway is coming in the travelers are driving on it like it is a highway even though it is at Lake Lucy Road and Carver Beach Road only two lanes with poor visual sightways for people seeing it from the cross streets.
They are easily in a blind spot unless they drive over a crosswalk area for walkers and bicyclists to also use so they end up partially into the intersection in order to see easily cars on the main road. I avoided a 5 car collision by about about one foot of out car. Experience with this intersection I am afraid to even cross it when the coast is clear as some car might come bounding down it at 70 miles per hour.
There are several residential streets and driveways in that area like in Excelsior though fewer. The County upgraded a Police Officer to a more expensive car to give tickets. But I see the need is greater for putting a traffic light at either Lake Lucy Road or Carver Beach Road to allow for safe entrance and exit out of the road for drivers including many who have children they need to take back and forth to school.
HELP SAVE OUR CROSS AND ARTWORK depicting the BLOOD of JESUS. Soul Chasers Prayer and Outreach Center has only been open in Amarillo, Texas since May 1st, 2005. We completely renovated our building which we lease from the San Jacinto Masonic Lodge No. 1330, the Masons welcomed our Christian Evangelistic Ministry with open arms.
The Master of the Lodge gave his approval on behalf of the Lodge for the placement of the Cross on the roof. In addition approval was granted for the painting of the cross on our back door. The Master of the lodge in agreement with our Lease gave us full aproval to paint the outside of the building and create signs and artwork.
The only sign on the building which is on the front wall, consisting of a flat plywood board, was painted in red paint with "JESUS SAVES" written on it. On the corner of the building and directly under the rooftop cross our artist painted red blood flowing down the side of the building. Written inside the red paint are different quotes, concerning the Blood of Jesus, such as "The Blood of Jesus Sets you Free".
Upon completion of all the outside artwork the Master of the Lodge advised us to cease from any further painting, as members of the lodge had complained about the blood artwork. They found the Blood artwork to be disturbing. The Director of our organization contacted the City of Amarillo Code Enforcement Department to obtain what rules, regulations and laws pertained to all the work done during the renovation of the building.
Per the City of Amarillo, no permits were needed for the artwork, as it is not considered to be signage under city ordinances. String lighting (Christmas lights) were placed on the border of the roof outlining it in white lighting. The Cross was lit up with red christmas lights. These lights are not regulated by the Code Enforcement Department and are not considered to be electrical work which normally needs permits and inspections.
On August 15, 2005 Six months into our lease we received notifcation from our Landlord - San Jacinto Masonic Lodge No. 1330, that they wanted the Cross removed from the roof, the Cross removed from the back door. They found the lighting on the cross and roof to be a hazard (in their opinion) and therefore disconnected all lights.
They demand immediate removal of all artwork painted with red paint on the outside of the building. The sign and the artwork of the Blood of Jesus. They state that their membership voted on the issue and want it all removed. They state that it violates the Grand Lodge laws which prohibits the Lodges from placement of any signs or emblems denoting a particular religion.
We are in full compliance with our lease agreement. During the renovation and placement of the artwork and crosses the Master of the Lodge and other members were involved and get informed on a daily basis. They consistly gave their approval for all our work, citing we had done a wonderful job and they were very pleased to have us as tenants.
In addition, the supplied equipment such as ladders for us to place the cross on the roof, and to install the lighting. The Master was constantly encouraging us to paint the outside of the building (since it was in poor condition) and told us to paint whatever we wanted. Furthermore, we had even negotiated with the Lodge about possibly renovated a large historical murial on the North wall of the building, which had started to peel and fade.
We presented them with plans of painting a depiction of Jesus Christ surrounded by drug addicts, prostitues and homeless people. The Master of the Lodge stated we had his approval.
Upon consulting with City Officials and our Attorneys, we our in full compliance with the law and followed proper procedure for approval per our lease agreement.
We therefore refuse to comply with the demands for the removal of these items. In addition, we request your support in standing with us on this issue. The Masonic Lodge is only offended by the Christian emblems of the Cross and the Blood of Jesus, because they despise both and teach against them.
The members of the Masonic Lodge are the only individuals that have made any negative comments about our artwork. The cross and the Blood artwork have drawn the comments and attention of every person that frequents sixth street in Amarillo, Texas.
We have been overwhelmed with compliments from all types of people from various faiths, beliefs and backgrounds. The cross and the Blood Artwork have become the Outreach's Identity as it is located on Historic Route 66 amongst Antique shops, biker bars and clubs. We will stand strong for the CROSS and we Proclaim once again that THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
We will not back down from what we belief is our right and priviledge to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus, the Death on the Cross, the atonement of our Sins throught the Blood of Jesus and by his death we obtain Salvation, and through Jesus only, not by works or by any other human means.
We are justified and washed in the Blood of Jesus. Satan ! Masons ! You are defeated in Jesus Name and we proclaim Victory so that the Lost may be Saved.
Some thing has to be done about the out ragous prices of dogs on trademe. There are some cross breeds selling for over $1000, I don't think this is right as a lot of people can provide these dogs with an excellent home where they would be well taken care of but can not afford it.
If they want to sell for the prices they are advertised at they should belong to a breeders club.
The National People's Congress (NPC) of the People's Republic of China (PRC) approved a draft of the "Anti-Separation Law" in December 2004 and will submit it to the NPC for further deliberation and passage in March, 2005. The enactment of such a law deeply concerns Taiwan, an independent and sovereign nation comprised of 23 million people.
The "Anti-Separation Law" will provide unification with the PRC as the sole option for cross-Strait relations. The law outlines what Beijing considers acts and consequences of Taiwan independence, and further promotes its "one country, two systems" stance in strict conformity with its so-called "one China" policy. At worse, the law would, in effect, legalize war against Taiwan in the eyes of Beijing.
Passage of the "Anti-Separation Law" would change the status quo unilaterally and result in serious consequences for peace and stability in the region. It ignores the political reality that Taiwan and the PRC are two independent and equal entities and disregards the desire of the Taiwan people to determine their own future. In December 2004, for example, the Mainland Affairs Council conducted a survey to Taiwan people in which 83% or respondents polled expressed opposition to the enactment of the "Anti-Separation Law."
The passage of such a law would quickly destroy what little trust there is in Beijing and erode cross-Strait relations further.
We, the homeowners residing on 1200 block of Elm Avenue in City of Glendale, California are strongly urging the city authorities to consider adding a stop signs on the Glenwood Rd and Elm Avenue intersection. Currently there is only one set of stop signs for Elm Avenue. Glenwood Rd. lacks one.
Every day the residents, and especially others not familiar with this intersection, face a difficult and hazardous situation.
The view from Elm Avenue to the cross traffic on Glenwood Rd. is obstracted.
The 85% of the time parked vehicles on Glenwood Rd. are too close to to the curve of the curb. For some reason, the parking has been allowed almost to the edge of the curve.
The undersigned would attest to the fact that in order to see the cross traffic one has to pass the rear of the parked vehicles, and by this time one is almost into the Glenwood Rd. Something needs to be done as soon as possible before something tragic happens at this crossing. Crossing this street is almost like a 'catch up' game. This has been proven to be very hazardous based on our experience, and numerouse accidents we've witnessed.
A Planning Application has been made to Tendring District Council for the building of houses on the Red Cross Site in Manor Lane, Dovercourt. We believe that the proposed site is unsuitable, due to poor road access and the sewer system in the area is under constant repair. The new housing development would increase the sewage problems further.

Needing a stoplight at the end of the exit ramp off of I-40 to Union Cross Road in Kernersville, N.C. To turn left sometimes can take up to 30 minutes depending on the time of day. Especially after 5 pm.
Goths have been treated unfairly because we wear black. Some people say that we have to worship the devil. That's not fair, we have the same rights as others do. I have been treated unfairly because of the way I look. Goths don't have to worship the devil if we don't want to. Just like you. Some people who aren't goth worship the devil. Did you know that priests that go to church some times wear all black. And there's different kinds of Goths. Fetish Goths, Perky Goths, lots, and its like saying to a person who worships god and wears black "You have to worship the devil." Thats not fair.
Please sign to tell people we have rights too, and shouldn't be treated unfairly. I know for a fact that 80-90% worship god, or have another religion. The rest are devil worshipers. I'm not a devil woprshiper, I love god. But here's something to think about. Why did Jesus kill himself for us? He loved us I know, but did he do suicide? Of so, he did a sin, and not everybodies perfect. We are forgiven by God, and he loves ALL of us. Wether we love him or not. Its like a family member, you love them but maybe you don't like their apperence. You love them any way.
And did you know that the Goth sign was used by Christens before Jesus was born? Its true, we just liked it we grabbed it and called it our own. That's when Jesus died and the christains turned to the Cross. We like the cross too but prefer the Goth symbole.

This peition is directed to Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas. Its goal is to add Eric G. Russell, DC, to the Blue Cross Blue Shield Network, allowing the citizens of Commerce, Texas the right to choose Dr. Russell for their Chiropractic care. Dr. Eric Russell is the husband of Dr. Yvonne Villanueva-Russell, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M University-Commerce, and has opened a Chiropractic office, Beacon Chiropractic in Commerce, Texas. Dr. Russell has appealed the decision denying him inclusion as a participating provider within the Blue Cross/Blue Shield network since the recommended number of Chiropractors within a 75 mile driving radius of Commerce has been met. It is my desire as a Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas policy holder (Texas A&M University-Commerce, Commerce ISD and Zurn/Quest employees) to add Dr. Russell to the in-network provider list so that I may have freedom of choice concerning my healthcare providers.
Chrono Cross. One of the most anticipated and talked about games. Chrono Cross combines extrodinary music, breathtaking graphics, and a vivid storyline. But for long this awsome game has been kept just to the USA and Japan. Why is this a problem? Europe is a vast beuatiful place with many people and a very technologicly advanced society. I ask you why is'nt Chrono Cross able to be enjoyed there? Why shouldn't it be? If your from the USA or Japan don't you want Chrono Cross to be shared across the globe? If your from Europe dont you wish you could play Chrono Cross? I'm asking all of you to join and sign this petition!
Please sign this petition to show your appreciation to the Salvation Army and also the Red Cross. May God Bless America!
