Gabi Licastri New York State What happened to our country? What happened to our Constitution? What's going on?
Beth Avery   I think that Elena Sassower's indictment and incarceration is a miscarriage of justice because the videotape of the session indicates her comment was made after the Chair announced the session was dismissed. Moreover, I think her imprisonment is unconstitutionally disproportionate to such inconsequentially "disruptive" "offense" and obviously Ms. Sassower did not commit this "offense" for personal gain or bad intent, but rather clearly out of deeply held personal conviction that the mechanisms of government need citizen oversight. Moreover, clearly she has suffered unfairly discriminatory treatment compared to others, for example, the denial of a stay pending an appeal and denial of a reasonable amount of time to prepare her affairs between sentencing and imprisonment so that she would not unfairly suffer serious collateral consequences in other aspects of her life, so contrary to the considerations showed in these regards to others like John Gotti, Martha Stewart, etc. This is beneath our justice system.
David Mishler   Constructive non violent criticism is one of the fundemental rights and duties of americans and should be encouraged even by those who express unpopular views as it helps all of us come to a better understanding of the issues and the effects and emotions revolving around those issues. Certainly we should not be dispensing unduly harsh sentences for minor infractions of rules especially where such rules are not generally known about and apparently meant to deal with much more severe offenses. Please remember that the government of the people, by the people, and for the people needs to be always respectful and tolerant of the people by whose delegated authority they serve.

Simon Brown Ireland I can only hope that some good comes from this injustice. I'm appalled that this is happening today in America, it sounds reminiscent of Solzhenitsyn's stories! My thoughts and prayers will be with Elena, her family, and those involved in the case. Good for her for standing up.

Gail Brooks TX I agree with this petition

Leslie Gendalmen NY Judge Holeman is a criminal who should be sentenced to at, the very least, six months in the same DC Jail, to which he sent Elena. Let the real guilty party have a taste of his own medicine!

ROBERT G. LASHEFF IL OUTRAGED AT ABUSE OF POWER
E.E., Ph.D NY Ms. Sassower is a prisoner of conscience, by definition. But where is Amnesty International? Where is the ACLU? We should all be grateful, to the fullest extent, for Elena's sacrifice; a sacrifice not just for those that are appearing in court in recent days, but for Americans who might also have to face unjust judges of our judiciary. Elena was a hero before she was wrongfully imprisoned; now she's a martyr for standing up to corruption. Whence Elena is release from prison, I hope she has the strength, support, and resolve to continue the phenomenal work she has done over the past 15 years or so. Please free Elena Ruth Sassower, now. Thank you.
P.E., Esq MD As a practicing attorney, I am all too familiar with pro se litigants being treated like second class citizens in the court room. However, in my 20 years of practicing law, this is the vilest case of unlawful mistreatment of any pro se litigant I have ever heard of, witnessed, or could have even imagined. And though this story has had some great coverage (New York Law Journal, Philadelphia Inquirer, and on various Internet sites), I can't help but wonder why the other major media won't run the story. They are giants. Elena is but one person. How could she have the bravery to stand up, only to have the New York Times shut her heroism down? How can the Washington Post write a story defaming her? This is not the judiciary our forefathers had intended to exist; rather, quite the opposite. For the good of the country, please free Elena, as she should have never - not for one second - been placed behind bars.
Leslie Gendalmen NY Judge Holeman is a criminal who should be sentenced to at, the very least, six months in the same DC Jail, to which he sent Elena. Let the real guilty party have a taste of his own medicine!
Eliot Bernstein FL I have useful information that could put Judith Kaye, Steven Krane & Stephen Kaye behind bars for decades. Please contact me at 5613644240
Ann Durand FL Elena Sassower must be freed. This insanity and Fraud in the courts is an epidemic in this country and must come to an end.
Carey Adina Karmel NY Elena never should have been charged or prosecuted, let alone sentenced to serve time in jail! What a waste!!
Gail Brooks TX I agree with this petition
Gail D Haymon OH Elena Sassower should be immediately freed and have no record of any crime recorded against her.
Simon Brown Ireland I can only hope that some good comes from this injustice. I'm appalled that this is happening today in America, it sounds reminiscent of Solzhenitsyn's stories! My thoughts and prayers will be with Elena, her family, and those involved in the case. Good for her for standing up.
Michelle V. Spillane NY Its important that we continue to protect our 1st amendment rights
Cecile M. Allcock VT We need to tear down the wall that seperates us from our rights under the constitution. If the system doesn't believe in our freedom then it needs to be dismantled and replaced with one that does. Let our FREEDOM ring again. Remove from power those that abuse it.
Vic. T. Im MD Ms. Elena Sassower was forced to stand a trial without any probable cause. She was tried in a sham trial conducted under a squelching machine with a presiding judge who saw fit to manipulate the outcome of a "jury trial." (read more: www.secretjustice.org). To add more insult to our system of "law and justice," Judge Brian F. Holeman rendered a sentence amounting to a McCarthy-era-witch-hunt and the silencing of the voice of truth-seeking citizens. Judge Holeman finished his "job" by denying a stay pending appeal in a hope that this will moot any appellate review and his freewheeling will miraculously disappear . Not to mention the fact that there are at least two different court-made transcripts from a single sentencing proceeding ... How is this possible? Is Judge Holeman above the law? Judge Holeman should not allowed to remain on the bench and play “fast and loose” with the lives, rights and freedoms of our citizens, let alone with the U.S. Constitution.
Vicki Vaughan SC Isn't this unconstitutional?
Chris Cacace NY To all right-minded people, this case represents a most shocking violation of free speech rights. I have known the Sassowers for many years and my heart goes out to them for this disgrace to American justice. FREE ELENA NOW!
