A Petition to the White House for a Do Not Kill List

|

don't kill me, bro?

That didn't take long. Just a few days after the New York Times detailed the White House's drone war kill list operation, to which chief political advisor David Axelrod shows up on "Terror Tuesdays," the White House is being petitioned to create a do not kill list:

Considering that the government already has a "Do Not Call" list and a "No Fly" list, we hereby request that the White House create a "Do Not Kill" list in which American citizens can sign up to avoid being put on the president's "kill list" and therefore avoid being executed without indictment, judge, jury, trial or due process of law.

The link to the petition, which just passed 2,000 at posting. The White House requires you to sign up for an account (but you can get e-mails from top administration officials as a bonus!), and their "We the People" petition set-up requires a certain threshold be met for a response to be considered. The project's yielded cheeky responses to questions about UFOs and almost surreal ones about the war on drugs, but nothing's that's made "We the People"'s name, yet.
