From the Domestic Violence Committee: APPEAL FOR HELP!

petitiona href="http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd%3E">http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd>; to support
GPS
tracking of domestic abusers in the state of Maryland. They've written
a
letter asking for your help:

Dear Cecilia,

Our beautiful
36-year-old daughter Amber Schinault was a victim of
domestic violence in Maryland. Amber was first assaulted by her boyfriend
with his car on June
1st, 2012, where she had three fingers partially
amputated. On June 7th,
2012,  Amber with both hands bandaged from her
operation, stood before a
judge and obtained a restraining order against
him. Our daughter was the most
loving and
kind
individual.a href="http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd%3E">http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd>;

After
living with us for 50 days while in recovery, Amber went back home
on July
19th, 2012, because she missed her four rescued dogs so much. On
July 22, her
ex-boyfriend broke into her house, waited for her to get
home, and then
murdered her. The restraining order had no effect because
he was
determined.

We started a petition in memory of Amber to help other victims of domestic
violence like her. Will you
sign
it?a href="http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd%3E">http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd>;

In 2010,
a bill was presented to start a program for a GPS tracking device
to notify
law enforcement officials and the victim whenever a violator
enters a
restricted area. Since then, this bill has been in limbo in
Maryland. Our
goal is to notify the legislation just how important this
program is not only
in Maryland, but for the entire U.S.

If Amber's ex-boyfriend had a GPS
tracker in place to alert authorities
when he entered areas near her, Amber
still might be
alive
today.a href="http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd%3E">http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ahp2p/zNpF/BKFxd>;

Please
help us make a difference and save women like Amber in the future.
