This petition is the cornerstone of our justice system! We have a right to petition our government. That was THE founding principal of a democracy, here and everywhere. Just as important the accompanying blog rightly points out that the issue is OUR responsibility to 'protect' our children --not kill them, or jail them for being in our neighborhood. It's their neighborhood too. The laws are supposed to protect us from being abused -but instead, they become an instrument of abuse when fear filled idiots decide they can leverage their animus into law and compel all of us taxpayers, decent citizens, to pay for the ill-considered and ineffective application of cynical laws that permit the fearful to kill the innocent.
