#FOIAcakes – Compiling Prosecution Data for DC Crimes (Petitioning U.S. Department of Justice, K. Denise Rucker Krepp, ANC6B10 Commissioner)
The Department of Justice (DOJ) does not compile information on the type or number of violent crime cases it prosecutes in Washington, DC. My goal in starting this change.org petition is to have DOJ begin compiling the information.
We, The People would like for you to consider creating The Relisha T. Rudd Law (Petitioning DC Mayor Marion Bowser and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Rebecca Taylor)
We, The People are lobbying for a new law be put into effect making it a felony for a parent, legal guardian, or caretaker’s to not notify law enforcement of the disappearance of a child, within 24 hours of the time that they know the child is missing. This new law would also make it a felony to lie to law enforcement concerning that missing child.
Protect Hill East Citizens’ Safety! (Petitioning Washington, DC Government, Riccardo de Marchi Trevisan)
The police’s presence is not strong enough! Micro criminality, violent acts, break-ins, and drug trafficking are a constant issue and a matter of concern. We witness on a daily basis fellow citizens getting assaulted by individuals or groups of teenagers, break ins, and different act of violence. Please invest more time and resources on this issue! Please help us fighting this dramatic wave of crime.
Protect DC’s Black Communities from Police Violence: Say No to Mayor Bowser’s Crime Bill (Petitioning DC City Council, Black Lives Matter DMV and Stop Police Terror Project)
D.C. City Council, we want you to reject D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s proposal, B21-0357 – Public Safety and Criminal Code Revisions Amendment Act of 2015. We demand that you advance measures that alleviate social degradation, address unrelenting emotional trauma, and end economic exploitation and political disenfranchisement that plague the residents of D.C. Stop positioning the police as an occupying army in the District’s Black communities.
