Extreme violence and secret genocide is being committed against the white minority of South Africa. Tens of thousands of whites have been murdered since 1994. Brutal torture and rape is common and not even the young or elderly are spared.

Why does it take so long to interview and investigate murder allegations? Anonymous calls are essential to police investigation, however evidence to either substantiate the claim or discredit this should be sought as soon as possible to relieve distress, save resources and time of innocent people.
Anni Hindocha was brutally murdered on 13 November 2010 during a reported hijacking in Cape Town while on honeymoon with her husband Shrien Dewani.
The couple's taxi driver has been sentenced to 18 years prison for his part in the murder. Two others await trial currently in custody in South Africa.
In his Court testimony, the driver has alleged the husband Shrien Dewani planned and paid him to arrange the murder. The South African police also have CCTV footage of Mr Dewani having a private meeting with the driver in the hotel car park on arrival and also handing him an envelope with cash 3 days after the murder which the driver hid under his shirt in the hotel toilets. The Police want to question Mr Dewani and have him stand trial, but he has refused to voluntarily go there and has instructed lawyers to fight the South African government's extradition request.
BBC News has reported that the South African authorities say they have a witness to whom Shrien Dewani confessed "he could not break out of the engagement because he would be disowned by his family" and that "he needed to find a way out of it." The award-winning Channel 4 documentary Dispatches has also reported the same witness, who works as a gay escort, showing it a hotel receipt and itemised phone records to confirm his reported encounter with Mr Dewani.
A Court in the UK decided on 10th August 2011 that he can be extradited. The Court's decision has now been passed to the Home Secretary to ultimately decide whether to order the extradition.
This Petition is officially endorsed by the family of Anni Hindocha. Family members formally delivered a bound edition of the Petition to the Home Office on 21st September 2011 with 11,309 signatures. A further email update will be sent to the Home Office in the run up to the Home Secretary's decision which is expected by 10th October 2011.
When signing the Petition, please enter your full name. Please do not make any comments to pre-empt the outcome of a fair trial. Any Comments should be restricted to the Extradition Request and addressed to the Home Secretary. PLEASE ALSO TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY ABOUT THIS PETITION - USE THE 'TELL' AND 'LIKE' LINKS ABOVE FOR FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND EMAIL. IF YOU LIVE IN THE UK, PLEASE ALSO WRITE TO YOUR MP.
We are murdering our own offspring. "Abortion is the murder of an innocent child. It has to be condemned by society." - Ven. Pope John Paul II, 2/14/82 Nigeria. "(Abortion) is pure, pure murder." - Blessed Mother Teresa in video to David T. Little, now President of the World St. Thomas More Society.
The USA is the most influential nation on earth. Unless we end this demonic barbarity, and soon, the USA will destroy itself as it has cursed itself by coercing its citizens to pay for abortion through income tax. 50,000,000 and more innocent preborn children have been murdered since 1973.

Mark David Chapman murdered John Winston Ono Lennon on Dec. 8, 1980. He was pronounced dead at 11:15 pm.
We are urgently calling on the Iranian authorities to halt the imminent execution of Mohammad Reza Haddadi, who could face death by hanging any of these following days for a murder he allegedly committed when he was 15 years old.
Mohammad Reza Haddadi was sentenced to death in 2004 for the murder of Mohammad Bagher. He confessed the killing initially but during the trial he retracted it and said he’d made it because his two co-accused would have given his family money if he had done so. Mohammad then denied having taken part in the murder, and there are reports of his co-defendants supporting his claims of innocence and withdrawing their testimony implicating him in murder.
Mohammad Reza Haddadi’s family was told by judicial officials (04-07-2010) that they should arrange a last visit to their son before his execution already organized for the day after at Adelabad prison in the city of Shiraz.
Despite this, his death sentence was confirmed by Iran's Supreme Court in July 2005. Since then, his execution has been scheduled several times.
This repeated threat of imminent execution hanging over Mohammad Reza Haddadi, is no less than a form of torture. The threat of execution must be lifted now, once and for all.
Mohammad Reza Haddadi must not be executed for a murder that he is alleged to have committed when only 15 years old.
The execution of juvenile offenders is prohibited under international law, including Article 6(5) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Iran is a state party.
Research into the sentencing of murderers has found no evidence that people support mandatory life imprisonment.
The study found that those questioned had varying views about how long to jail murderers.
The report, funded by the charity the Nuffield Foundation, said the public had limited understanding of how convicted murderers were sentenced.
Researchers interviewed more than 1,000 people across in England and Wales.
The mandatory life sentence for all murders was introduced in 1965, when the death penalty was abolished.
Execution of any individual regardless of their crimes is unjustified and morally corrupt.
The United States of America cannot claim to be morally superior while it still continues to allow this shameful act of legalised murder.
There has been widespread condemnation of the Iranian government for its intent to stone to death a woman 'found guilty' in Iranian courts of acts of adultery and conspiracy to commit murder. (See the gopetition link below). As this is wrong so is the execution of a woman 'found guilty' in a USA court conspiring to commit the murder of her husband and her stepson. (See link to BBC News Website).
This petition demands that the Governor or Virginia, Robert McDonnell, stops the execution of this woman, a woman who has learning disabilities, however heinous her crimes.
We received a letter from the Colorado Department of Corrections Victim Services Unit, that this offender (Kenneth Eastridge DOC # 143705) is about to be referred for Community Corrections (half-way house) And if accepted the offender may be accepted into the intensive supervision program (ISP) which will mean he will be allowed to have his own apartment and live freely in the community with only an ankle bracelet!
Honor killings are an embarrassment to humanity.
Fellow human beings are being assassinated in the most inhumane methods. Daughters and wives are being brutally tortured, stoned, and murdered by their own families, all in the name of "honor." This widespread epidemic of such atrocious acts fueled by fundamentalist thinking—dating back to pagan times—is inexcusable. Honor killings are often supported, overlooked, and undermined by authorities and persons of influence.
These murders are committed not just in Muslim countries but around the world, with alarmingly increasing rates on such continents as Europe and North America, which contain some of the most advanced countries of the 21st Century. It is a shame to all humanity that women (and some men) are subject to such barbaric crimes—threatened, tortured in agony, dying the most gruesome deaths.
Statistics Related to Honor Killing:
- 93% of honor killings worldwide are committed against women
- 91% of honor killings are committed by Muslims
- 81% of honor killings committed in Western civilizations are for being “too Western”
- 81% of female victims of honor killing 25 years or younger are murdered by their family of origin
- 68% of women who are victims of honor killing are gruesomely tortured
- Approximately 50% of honor killings are committed by multiple perpetrators

Many patients died needlessly at the Gosport Memorial Hospital and Redclyffe Annex between 1988-2001.
In the last 11 years their families have fought tirelessly for the truth as to why their parents and partners died before their time under the regime of Dr Jane Barton?
Why has no one been held accountable?
There has been:
• 4 police investigations
• An investigation by the Commissioner of Health Improvement
• A death audit conducted by Professor Richard Baker (a report which has yet to be released into the public domain)
• An inquest where the Coroner, Mr. Bradley, withheld vital evidence from the Jury even though they still found Dr Barton guilty of causing deaths
• A GMC hearing, found Dr Jane Barton guilty of professional misconduct to a criminal standard yet she was not struck from the register.
• A review of the GMC’s decision by the CHRE which only came to the same conclusion that as she is now retired it was not necessary to remove her from the register (even though she can still practice if she wishes).
• Three reviews by the CPS who still have not addressed the alleged murders of the victims at the Gosport War Memorial Hospital.
Amid the Quango cover-ups and the amount of evidence still being withheld from the victim’s relatives, there is no hope for them to move on with their lives. It is only right and proper that they should have their answers. With the immense publicity surrounding this scandal for over 10 years, the people of Gosport should hear the truth. . giving closure to the families who continue to fight on.
It is their fundamental right!

Drugs used in the Liverpool Care Pathway have been under much speculation. Although an audit of Care of the Dying, by the Marie Curie and the Royal College of Physicians in 2009 found that nearly 4000 terminal patients found the framework to be of high quality, there is no doubt that some patients remain at risk.
There is room in current practice for elderly, vulnerable patients to be started on the LCP without their or their family’s consent; it is not good enough to assume that in all hospitals, hospices and care homes that conversations will take place and that patients and families will be kept informed.
The audit reveals that two thirds of the 3,893 patients whose deaths were assessed needed no continuous infusion of medication, and all by 4% only needed low doses of opiates. However, there have are cases where patients have been started on high doses of opiates and sedatives via infusion and died prematurely.
We shouldn’t have to fight for justice after death; the law should be there to protect us when we are alive.
Deport the Parvez Family from Canada:
This family is in Canada on a refugee claim and have now murdered their youngest child for becoming too "western" causing the father to feel "naked" in his community. In Canada, Murder is a capital offense!!!
Please deport the Parvez family, they have been in Canada for 11 years and have had plenty of time to become "western" and learn to embrace the western world. Canada cannot help murderers and should NOT be paying for their meals and a roof over their head for 20 years.
I strongly urge Canadians who are outraged with this act of savage tribal behavior in our civilized western country to sign this petition and show families that kill their children that they are not welcome. I also strongly urge the Honorable Jason Kenney to consider who is appropriate to become a Canadian and who is not.
Aqsa Parvez's father and her brother have been sentenced to life in prison for what the judge called the "twisted and repugnant" murder of the 16-year-old.
Parvez was strangled to death in the family home in Mississauga, Ont., in December 2007. Her father, Muhammad Parvez, and brother Waqas Parvez, 26, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Tuesday.
The father "literally had her blood on his hands [while she had] her brother's DNA on her fingernails," Superior Court Justice Bruce Durno said in the Brampton, Ont., courtroom.
Durno said in handing down the second-degree murder sentence that he found it "profoundly disturbing that a 16-year-old could be murdered by a father and brother for the purpose of saving family pride, for saving them from what they perceived as family embarrassment."
Aqsa Parvez, the youngest of eight siblings, died early in the morning on Dec. 10, 2007.
She had been waiting at a school bus stop, but her brother, Waqas, arrived and took her to the family home.
About 30 minutes later, Muhammad Parvez called 911 and reported his daughter's death.
When police arrived, they found the teen fully clothed, lying on her bed with blood dripping from her nose.
Muhammad Parvez had blood on his hands and confessed to the killing. Waqas had left.
Police later discovered Waqas had strangled his sister. His DNA was found under her fingernails — evidence that the girl had fought for her life.
A conviction for second-degree murder brings an automatic life sentence, but allows the judge some latitude in parole eligibility, which can range from 10 to 25 years. Durno ruled the pair will not be eligible for parole for 18 years.
Durno said there was evidence of premeditation in the killing and described the plot as coming from a "twisted and a repugnant mindset."
Muhammad Parvez abused the trust and authority he had over his daughter, said the judge, describing her as "a young, vulnerable victim with a life ahead of her in Canada."
The sentence will send an important message "to others that would think of committing a crime like this."
In an agreed statement of facts entered into evidence on Tuesday, the court heard of Aqsa Parvez's rebellion against her traditional family.
She objected to having to wear traditional clothing and had little privacy at home.
Aqsa, according to the court documents, wanted to get a part-time job and enjoy the same freedoms as other girls she knew.
The teen left the family home twice. It was after she left for the second time that her father and brother killed her.
The murder has been described in some accounts as an "honour killing."
In an interview with police, Aqsa's mother, Anwar Jan Parvez, said her husband told her he killed his youngest child because "this is my insult. My community will say, 'You have not been able to control your daughter.' This is my insult. She is making me naked."
If you are outraged, please sign this petition. I will be sending the petition to the Honorable Jason Kenney Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism for Canada in hopes that it will be discussed in the House of Commons.
Edward Panganiban, a labor leader in the Southern Tagalog region. He was trying to catch a ride to work when he was gunned down by motorcycle-riding men at 5:20 pm, in Barangay Caingin, Sta. Rosa, Laguna last June 3.
He died on the spot, sustaining 12 gunshot wounds. Panganiban, 27, is the secretary of the Association of Independent Labor to Takata Philippines (Thanks-Independent). For five years now, he has been an employee of Japanese-owned Takata Philippines Corporation, which manufactures airbags and car seatbelts and is located at the Laguna Technology Park Incorporated. While he leads an independent union, Panganiban maintained good relations with KMU the Southern Tagalog Regional PAMANTIK formation, or the Unity of the Association Workers in Southern Tagalog.
As a genuine labor leader, he found common cause with labor formations that uphold militant and nationalist trade unionism. His death shows that the US-Arroyo regime is willing to assassinate not just KMU leaders, organizers and activists. It is willing to kill even independent labor leaders who have shown honesty and genuine leadership in fighting for workers’ rights. For the US-Arroyo regime, it appears that a good unionist should sooner or later be a dead one. His death once again calls the public’s attention to the very repressive atmosphere prevailing in special economic zones such as the Laguna Techno Park.
These havens of cheap and contractual labor have established themselves as centers of union busting as well, with extrajudicial killings fast becoming a weapon of choice against unionists. His death could only highlight the ruthlessness of the US-Arroyo regime and its military hitmen. They are still conducting extrajudicial killings even when they are slated to be replaced by a new regime soon. It was Mrs. Arroyo herself who green-lighted the killings of trade unionists when she labeled us as “factory terrorists.” Panganiban’s death stresses the enormous challenges facing the incoming regime of presumptive president-elect Noynoy Aquino.
Not only he MUST remain corruption-free, but he must also reverse Arroyo’s policies. In the field of human rights, he must put an immediate end to extrajudicial killings, abductions and other human rights violations. Another Panganiban's death puts an exclamation point to the call for justice, for Arroyo to be punished for her numerous grave crimes against the Filipino workers and people. Ordering and funding extrajudicial killings, abductions and other human rights violations is just one of her many grave crimes. She must be put to jail for all of these.
This case comes at a time when the International Labor Conference is at its 99th session, discussing trade-union rights. Meanwhile the Committee on Freedom of Association is slated to convene on June 3. The KMU is hoping to raise the issue of Panganiban’s killing in these venues to gather international support for our fight against extrajudicial killings. The case is further proof of the US-Arroyo regime’s disregard for International Labor Organization Convention 87 (Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organize) and 98 (Right to Organize and Collective Bargaining) – for which the ILO sent a high-level mission to the country last year which was welcomed by the regime.
I am starting this petition as this world and its rules needs reassessing, as no justice is being served.
Going to prison, convicted murderers, rapists etc is like a holiday, they have televisions, get well looked after. They should get treated like animals not royalty.
Too many children are getting murdered in this world and it's about time that people like you and so called Social Services put a stop to it. The lady who murdered 2 young children, as the news has stated the judge is wondering whether she should go to prison. I think people like her need the death penalty. I really think that that should come back in, as in those days, it was a nice world.
For the past fifteen years there has been a RAPID increase in murder, rape and all other incredibly savage acts and crime in general. South Africa is currently NUMBER ONE on in the world for murder, rape and all crime and therefore earned the name "CRIME CAPITAL OF THE WORLD".
More then THREE THOUSAND FARMERS have been murdered since 1994 and nearly more then 50 South Africans are murdered PER DAY! A BIG portion of that are CHILDREN that were RAPED TO DEATH!
These SAVAGES are seldom caught and only a few gets captured and convicted. Most of these murderers actually prefer being in jail. They receive clean beds, three meals and free education if they so desire.
This becomes another burden on the taxpayer. With other words the law-abiding citizens of South Africa actually are then the ones getting punished for the murderer 's heinous acts! More then 600 South Africans have actually successfully gained refugee status in other countries! HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS South Africans have already fled the country in fear of their lives! This resulted in the ultimate "Brain Drain" of the country.
Instead of keeping the LAW-ABIDING, EDUCATED citizens of South Africa IN the country, the Lack of the South African Government's involvement and lack of proper punishment has secured South Africa 's first place as a MURDER/RAPE/CRIME - CAPITAL IN THE WORLD!
I am of the strong opinion that Capital Punishment for murder should be reintroduced to South Africa! Amnesty International states that the Death Penalty 'violates the right of the life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.' The question - What about the lives and rights of the victims? Were they not entitled to the Right of Life and Prohibition of Torture?
The person that takes the life savagely of another should no longer benefit from the protections afforded under any legislation. The failure of the government to actually ensure the citizens of South Africa a safer country is no longer expectable.
A Jail term is no longer a deterrent. BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY IN SOUTH AFRICA! PLEASE VISIT our pages on FACEBOOK -
EYE ON SOUTH AFRICA
As it stands, Leanne Holland's murder is now an unsolved cold case. The purpose of this petition is to force the authorities to reopen the investigation into who really killed Leanne Holland and to begin investigating the initial mishandling of the case by the original investigating team.
Graham Stuart Stafford was jailed for life in 1992 after being found guilty in the Queensland Supreme Court of murdering schoolgirl Leanne Holland.
He was convicted on circumstantial evidence of using a blunt object to bash to death the sister of his then-fiancee at a home in Goodna on September 23, 1991.
Graham spent nearly 15 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. He was released early in 2005 and on Christmas Eve 2009 had his conviction quashed pending a retrial. On March 26 2010 the Crown said that they would not be proceeding with a retrial.
Tired of crime in South Africa...!?

Abortion is purposely taking the life of an unborn fetus. Abortion can lead to medical problems and anxiety problems.
We all have rights at the point of conception. When you choose to terminate the life of a human being, it is murder.
There is no faith or ideology that justifies this murderous and heinous act.
People do not understand that abortion leads to severe medical conditions. It is not a woman's choice to decide the life and death of another person.
Natalie Wood was a Hollywood icon, beloved by millions for her performances in such classic films as Miracle on 34th Street, West Side Story and Rebel Without a Cause.
Her bizarre death near the yacht Splendour on a chilly November evening in 1981 off Catalina Island has remained shrouded in mystery.
Recent revelations, including admissions by Ms. Wood's husband, have shown that the initial investigation was seriously flawed and evidence ignored.
On October 26, 2009 a tragic accident occurred that resulted in the loss of the life of Matthew Gorzynski. This event has devastated his family and friends
Help us make sure that another tragedy does not occur with the persecution of William through the judicial system with a charge of murder. He’s just a child and needs to remain in the juvenile system of this state.
In 2008, Steven Barker, his brother Jason Owen and his partner, Tracy Connolly; were convicted of causing or allowing the death of a two year old boy, Peter Connolly. The details of their crime sickened the nation, causing outrage in parliament and widespread anger amongst the people of Britain.
Causing or allowing the death of a child is a relatively new offence in Britain, introduced to prevent child murderers simply avoiding responsibility for their crimes by blaming each other for laying the final blow. Naturally, Barker, Owen (who changed his name to try and disassociate himself from his brother) and Connolly all blamed each other, meaning that there was no realistic possibility of getting a murder conviction, so they were tried under the new law.
It sounds fairly passive, causing or allowing the death of a child, but their role in Peter's death was anything but. Barker moved in with Connolly, who failed to tell the authorities that he was living with her while Peter was on the child protection register, as she was required to do. Barker and Owen had a violent past, directing their sick fantasies at old and young alike, including torturing their own grandmother to make her change her will. Barker was also convicted of raping a two year old girl after being found guilty of causing or allowing the death of Peter.
From the day Barker and Owen came on the scene, Peter's days were numbered. By the time he died, after 17 months of torture, neglect and abuse, little baby Peter had 50 separate injuries on his body, caused by the animals he lived with.
Not surprisingly, the people of Britain despise these animals for their crimes, which has led to speculation that they will be granted new identities and anonymity on release, to protect them from vigilante attacks. It has been reported in the British press that Steven Barker, the child-raping baby murderer, has his hear set on starting a new life in Canada on his release.
We think that Barker should be barred from being able to settle in Canada or any other country for that matter. His crimes were committed in Britain, he is a British citizen, the Government of Canada has no legal or moral obligation to allow him to come here. Indeed, it would be grossly injurious to the reputation of Canada as a civilized and law-abiding society, and it would place at risk the most vulnerable people in our country, namely the very young and seniors upon whom Barker and his wretched accomplices visited their sick and violent fantasies.
What’s Wrong With The Felony Murder Rule- Common Sense:
1. It is fundamentally unfair and in violation of basic principles of individual criminal culpability to hold one felon liable for the unseen and unagreed-to results of another felon’s action.
2. The felony murder rule operates as a matter of law upon proof of the intent to commit a felony to relieve the prosecution of its burden of proving intent to kill, which is a necessary element of murder.
3. The intention to commit a felony does not equal the intention to kill, nor is the intention to commit a felony, by itself, sufficient to establish a charge of murder.
4. The felony murder rule violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of due process, more specifically, equal protection of the law, because no defense is allowed on the charge of first-degree murder, only the underlying felony.
5. The purpose of creating degrees of murder is to punish with increased severity the more culpable forms of murder, but an accidental or unknown killing during the commission or attempted commission of a felony is punished more severely than all other murder charges with exception to first degree murder.
6. The felony murder rule erodes the relation between criminal liability and moral culpability in that it punishes all homicides in the commission, or attempted commission, of the proscribed felonies, whether intentional, unintentional, or accidental, without proving the relation between the homicide and the perpetrator’s state of mind.
7. Holding one or many criminally liable for the bad results of an act which differs greatly from the intended results is based on a concept of culpability which is totally at odds with the general principles of jurisprudence.
8. The basic rule of culpability is further violated when felony murder is categorized as first-degree murder because all other first-degree murders (carrying equal punishment) require a showing of premeditation, deliberation, and willfulness, while felony murder only requires a showing of intent to do the underlying felony.
9. While the felony murder rule survives in California, and other states, the numerous modifications and restrictions of it by some states courts and legislatures throughout the United States reflect dissatisfaction with the basic harshness and injustice of the doctrine and call into question its continued existence.
10. The felony murder rule can be used by prosecutors in a manner so as to cause grossly disproportionate sentencing, depending on the circumstances of each individual case.
11. The felony murder rule is unconstitutional because the presumption of innocence is thrown out. The prosecutor must only prove intent to commit the original felony; once done, first degree murder attaches to the underlying felony even though intent, (mens rea,) to commit murder does not have to be proved.
12. The felony murder rule is unconstitutional because it violates the Eighth Amendment: cruel and unusual punishment, grossly disproportionate sentencing to the crime(s) actually committed.
13. The felony murder rule bears no rational relationship or equity in its two penalties, with the penalties of other California murder laws, including, at times, the charge of first-degree murder.
Every day hundreds of Dolphins are gathered to a secret cove and slaughtered for their meat!
In May 2009 the focus on politics in the UK was very heavily overshadowed by issues of politicians expense claims and there was little evidence of the government machine working behind the scenes. In the beginning of June however the conviction of two men responsible for the appalling murder of two French students managed to drag the Justice Secretary, Jack Straw, into the headlines to make a public apology to the deceased's parents.
The reason for this apology was that unsurprisingly serious problems within the justice system had been identified in a report to parliament years prior to the offence. It is an inescapable fact that failure to properly address these issues at government level definitely contributed to the ability of Dano Sonnex to be in a position whereby he could commit the crime.
A further catalogue of blunders throughout the justice system each played their part in Sonnex being at large when he should have been in custody including Magistrates granting bail when he was on probation and a quite bizarre circumstance whereby police departments couldn't decide which were responsible for his apprehension. This resulted in a further 2 week delay during which time the offence was committed.
Although shocking this incident may not be the only such one in recent years as details of another case of ongoing debate continue to plague Kenny MacAskill MSP north of the border. Contrary to his parliamentary obligations under paragraph 7.2.1 in Volume 2 of the Code of Conduct for MSP's, Mr MacAskill refuses to release information which could show that another convicted person was possibly responsible for the suspicious death of Kevin McLeod.
"7.2.1 In representing people’s interests, members have a duty to respect individual privacy, unless there are overwhelming and lawful reasons in the wider public interest for disclosure to be made to a relevant authority, for example, where a member is made aware of criminal activity."
There is no other way to read this paragraph than to recognise that Mr MacAskill's refusal to disclose the requested information breaches the code of conduct. What is more worrying is that this breach could be impeding the course of justice which as Justice Secretary he is obligated to ensure does not happen.
It seems that while Kenny MacAskill is prepared to reveal that "efforts are under way to update police conduct regulations to plug the loophole", he is not prepared to release information resulting from the loophole. Information which could be preventing the parents of Kevin Mcleod from ever seeing justice done for their son. He has answered questions put to him by John Thurso MP directly related to the Kevin Mcleod case while publicly denying any knowledge of it which is not technically possible. In short his actions are actively preventing justice from being done rather than ensuring that it is.
Alex Salmond who faced charges of breaches in the ministerial code of conduct relating to misleading information regarding absconded prisoners on 30th May continues to publicly supported Mr MacAskill's position. In doing this, Mr Salmond has suggested that Mr MacAskill's continuing position demonstrates a lack of public opposition to it.
“The [ministerial] code says all ministers, including the First Minister, must not only give accurate and truthful information but correct an error at the earliest opportunity. Any minister who knowingly misleads Parliament should offer their resignation.”
Despite the above, Alex Salmond, Jack Straw and Kenny MacAskill continue to hold their positions while the flaws in our justice system which continue to wrongly release or fail to apprehend the guilty while equally through misconduct cause similar devastation to families through wrongful accusations and convictions.
It is time that the public are made aware of the full extent of misconduct within the justice system at all levels and demonstrated what it's position truly is regarding the effects of it on everyone in society.
Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss.
Please petition the Florida Parole Commission and ask in your own words that they not grant a parole to Thomas Edward DeSherlia who murdered my husband Officer Ron Parker.
Victims, Widows & Family Member Will Serve Time For the Rest of their Lives! However, if we extend the parole hearing intervals to 7 years these families will not have to relive these horrific incidents as often.
