Sign the petition to fire Steve Heymann
we petition the obama administration to:
Fire Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Heymann.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Heymann's overzealous prosecution of an allegedly minor and non-violent electronic crime led to the suicide of Aaron Swartz. President Obama recently said, as repeated by Vice President Biden, "if our actions result in saving only one life, they're worth taking." We should not destroy the lives of human beings for crimes against computer systems that harm no one and provide no benefit to the perpetrator. Such actions should be treated as forms of protest and civil disobedience. To prosecute these actions the same as rapes and murders is a savage abuse of the criminal justice system which continues to destroy the lives of peaceful, productive members of society.
Fire Attorney Steve Heymann before his reckless prosecutions claim any more lives.
Created: Jan 12, 2013
This attorney is more of a persecutor than a prosecutor. This is our government and we should have a say about who populates the bureaucracy.
Please sign this petition.

3. Done, plus I tweeted the link to the petition...
...to my 6600+ Twitter "followers."
Finally, something worth tweeting about, besides trying to promote my new record!
Thanks for the OP about the petition, Jumping John, I had not heard about it.
