I have recently joined some of the most relevant forums in hopes that
my post will be read and acted on by the GREATEST NUMBER of readers…
to help me acquire the much-needed signatures for our proposed
“Molly’s Law” petition. Hopefully, since your group has more than 997
members and is of great interest to everyone, you will be able to help
me and give some guidance. I really don’t know how to navigate this
system very well, so am just guessing about what to do… so please feel
free to set me straight if I have done anything wrong.
But it's past time, once again, to get the word out on the "Molly's
Law" project and ask for people to visit our online petition, read the
Preface to the law we have written, and sign in support of it... then
pass the link and information on to as many others as possible! It
has to do with using the PROPER search dogs… scent-discriminating man-
trailers… in missing persons cases, so it is important to everyone!
At the moment, I have something over 1,700 online signatures and
almost 2,500 signatures on hard-copy petitions. This isn't even a drop
in the bucket to show for the untold amount of work I have put into
this important project over the past few years. We should have
hundreds of thousands, if not MILLIONS, of signatures by now... but we
have no grant or other funds to help us publicize, set up a website,
etc., etc. I have been joining various forums and message boards and
posting whenever I can, but that is just not enough. I really need
everyone’s help in getting complete signatures (U.S. citizens only)!
PLEASE... if everyone would sign and pass it on to even a few family,
friends, neighbors, co-workers, businesses, etc.... and ask each of
them to do the SAME, on down the chain of E-mails, letters, phone
calls, etc., the numbers would grow TREMENDOUSLY in a very short
time! I have seen petitions with hundreds of thousands of signatures,
having to do with subjects of FAR LESS importance than this one, and
the comparison dismays and depresses me! Each person should think
about what they would want done, if their child or adult loved one
went missing! The problem has to be fought on many fronts, and this
is one of the most important... because a scent-discriminating man-
trailer, called in promptly on a search, can do MUCH to help find or
recover these victims and/or gather evidence! We have reams of
documentation on the use of Bloodhounds, which is our BEST
recommendation, particularly on cases where the victim may have been
taken in a vehicle, and the trail is old and contaminated!
We should NEVER allow a trail to become this complex or difficult,
however, before a qualified man-trailer is called in! The only hope
for change, nationally, is through "Molly's Law" and the attending
aspects of our overall plan, which is to also educate law enforcement
and the general public; to provide contacts for these resources; and
to encourage further training of search dog teams to hone their
skills! Your help in making this possible is most deeply
appreciated! Please refer to the link below, and permission is given
to forward this message in its entirety, or the paragraphs and link
below, to any person, group or list that can be of help! Thank you!
P.S. -- I am providing the link to the Online Petition site for
"Molly's Law™", which I hope you will visit and read what we, as a
group of search dog handlers from all areas of Law Enforcement and
Search and Rescue across the country, are working on to help combat
the problem of lost, missing and abducted children and adults.
Your signature will be greatly appreciated -- and please share this
link and information freely with EVERYONE you possibly can! We need
the help of all handlers and other concerned citizens to get the word
out, as we plan to get the actual 12-point law we have written...
passed as a National/Federal Law! Many thanks for all your support!!
