PLEASE CALL THE GOVERNOR's OFFICE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tell Governor Deval Patrick to stop playing games with our children's lives. ... We do NOT want more future Melissa's Bills added because he chose to protect REPEAT offenders and pedophiles. How many more children have to maimed, abused, or killed for protections to be put in place for them.?
To oppose bills like Melissa's Bill so he can give judges MORE "discretion"?
We have seen what "judicial discretion" has done for victims of abuse in family courts and now he wants it in criminal courts? .... It has allowed victims to continue to be abused by the very system designed to protect them at an escalating epidemic unprecedented cost to Massachusetts’s taxpayers.
Reported child abuse has doubled in Massachusetts since he became Governor. Who is Deval protecting? Victims or abusers?
Call the Governor's office and ask him to support legislation that PROTECTS our citizens and children and not the offenders. 617.725.4005.
