Please consider signing this petition for justice

Some of you may remember when I told the story about the horrid summer my family endured. I got a call one morning that my daughter-in-law's brother had been shot (while sitting in his living room watching TV). Sadly, he did not make it. A young couple had been out in their backyard in the middle of the night and were shooting a gun. The bullet carried into Joe's apartment and hit him in the back of the head while he watched TV. He had been married for just a few short weeks.

This was traumatic, impossible-to-accept tragedy for my daughter-in-law's family in Illinois. They are trying to get as many signatures on a petition before the sentencing of the couple responsible for Joe's death. It was a reckless act the couple should serve at least some time for and be held accountable for their reckless actions. They took away a young man's life, a young man who loved his life.

Please, take a moment to sign this petition. The story is posted at the petition site on the front page. I will appreciate your support, and so will Joe's immediate family. Thank you. Here is the link:

  1. Marti, I signed, also. I just hate hearing about things like that happening to good and loving people just living their lives, and some moron takes them away. Bless Joseph's family and friends.
