Default Sign the petition to prosecute the Lake County Sheriff that killed the sailor

I don't know if the sailing community remembers this miscarriage of justice on Clear Lake, California, when the Sheriff, under the influence, ran his powerboat at high speed at night over a sailboat, killing one, injury to others. Due to his position, he arrested the operator of the sail boat and charged him with the death.

I just signed the petition "Lake County, California Board of Supervisors, & D. A., Don Anderson: Prosecute former Deputy Russell Perdock for the death of Lynn Thornton." on Change.org.

It's important. Will you sign it too? Here's the link: http://www.change.org/petitions/lake..._term=15697171

I do remember that. One good note from this is that this type of abuse of power is rare enough that we tend to hear about it.
