Petition to Director Mark Inch
Sir, We Have Integrity!
Dear Director Inch, As employees of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, we have the right, per the Master Agreement, "to bring matters of personal concern to the attention of any management official, any other branch of government, the congress and any other authorities." Sir, we want to respectfully inform you that your message which calls into question the integrity of the men and women who work for the BOP was very distasteful and disrespectful. For someone who has never worked behind the walls of a federal prison within this system, your message was very out of touch. We challenge you to work in a Special Housing Unit or walk in our shoes before questioning our integrity. We're sure before you learned the new term of "banging in," you learned the terms "augmentation" and "mandated." When staff are being augmented and mandated and run toward the emergency, where is the appreciation for that? Instead, during turbulent times such as these, you patronize the use of earned and well deserved benefits. We are sure, through your career, you have earned the benefits afforded to you due to your service to our country. We thank you for that service. You deserve every benefit you receive and more. We are also sure, as a war veteran, you capitalize on the use of your benefits, whether it be through healthcare or compensation of some sort. Here, we also work for our country, many of us (nearly 30%) are also military veterans, through civil service and you question the use of our earned benefits. You say there is no integrity. After days of having feces and urine thrown at us, we simply suit up and return. Our lives are threatened daily. We tell our families that there is always a chance we may not come home and yet we still do the work that is required, day in and day out. Is that not what makes up our core values? Is that not integrity? Even you, sir, stated that it was counseling that has gotten you through stressful times. Yet, we can not use our earned time to decompress without it being scrutinized or examined in a negative light. You have yet to find time to motivate staff, thank them for their service, or cheer them on in the right fashion. However, you have found time in your suit and tie, behind a desk, in an office, where the threat of danger is absent, to criticize. This is disheartening to say the least. We look to you as leader to have balance. While we accept corrective action to make us better, we also would like congratulatory recognition and positive reinforcement when deserved. However, in all aspects we deserve to be respected. The work we do is of service to the public and the standard we are held to as law enforcement officers is high and deserving of the respect that we have earned through the work we do. We, Sir, believe that an apology is in order and we hope that you can see things from our perspective. Hopefully, this opens the communication barrier and allows for positive dialogue. Respectfully, BOP Staff
Petition to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
we demand that Devin Harris stop his backyard breeding immediately and be investigated
Devin Harris for multiple years has been known to sell puppies who are severely ill and severely injured. He's has his customers who purchase puppies from him sign NDA forms that they may not tell people that they received their dogs from him. The dogs are living in filth crates in basements and garages. Devin Harris of Great Dane of the Ozark and Madisonn Calhoun his "business partner" who also runs Northern Soul Great Dane need to be immediately investigated for animal cruelty. Devin Harris also currently has my 7 month old puppy Lucille in his custody right now. He disputed the payments he made for her through his bank and got his money back. So now this man has his money back AND my dog. My dogs paperwork was never signed over to him therefore at this point the dog is considered stolen. Please sign this petition so that these disgusting human beings can be held accountable for their actions. No animals deserve to be treated this way. I will not stop until i get my dog back and they have their animals taken away from them.

Petition to Terry Robison
STOP KILLING DEER IN CLEVELAND METROPARKS WEST CREEK RESERVATION!
We want Metroparks (CMP) head of natural resources Terry Robison to stop killing deer. He claims it's for "conservation," while admitting that the reason there are so many deer in Ohio is because of hunting; this means he acknowledges killing results in rebounding numbers, but then, he condones killing. This is a blatant contradiction. We also want Robison to stop his radio collaring, telemetry study on deer, which results in deer mortality and stress, especially because he told this petitioner that the study results will make no difference in his decision to kill or not. Since CMPs annual deer killing has not "solved the problem," it actually results in the same or more deer. If that is the case, why not leave them alone? Now that CMP has added its new gem in the emerald necklace, West Creek Reservation in Parma, to its annual slaughterfest where sharpshooters have killed close to 80 deer the past two years, terrified deer egress the park and move southward; they are refuge-seeking. These animals have moved into suburban neighborhoods in Parma and Seven Hills, and now, residents incorrectly perceive there are more deer, and are looking to bow hunting to solve "the problem." This domino effect clearly caused by CMP deer killing has also resulted in an increase in deer-vehicle crashes on Broadview Road between Parma and Seven Hills. Because West Creek was once a lightly patronized marshy greenspace, safe for wildlife, but is now paved over, built on, and frequented on- and off-trail by exponentially more humans. The ripple effect extends to Broadview Heights, North Royalton, Strongsville, and other communities, now with bow hunting on the ballot March 2016. If the parks would just leave the deer alone, they would return to their homes, and balance would be somewhat restored.
Petition to INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS DIVISION OF THE JAPANESE FISHERIES AGENCY, TAIJI FISHERIES COOPERATIVE
DAYS WITH NO RESCUE FOR STARVING DYING WHALE CAUGHT IN FISHING NETS IN JAPAN
A minke whale has been trapped in fishing nets in Japan for days without rescue. The whale is stressed, suffering, starving and near death! The whale faces CERTAIN DEATH SOON if a rescue is not undertaken immediately! The world needs to rally and take action now--not only for this whale, but for thousands of other marine animals, including dolphins, that are repeatedly trapped in these fishing nets. This is nothing less than torture and coldblooded murder of innocent and defenseless marine life. Please contact the Japan Fishing Agency International Affairs Division NOW before it is too late! Also, please spread the word to marine rescue organizations who can help and begin this urgent rescue!
