There Is Now A Petition For Obama To Create A 'Do Not Kill List'

We The People, the White House’s official petition site, “provides a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country.” 

In light of the “Do Not Call” and “No Fly” lists — and in response to this New York Times story detailing Obama’s so-called “kill list” — one petitioner is (a little tongue-in-cheek-ly) asking the Obama administration to create a “Do Not Kill List.”

As of 6:30, the petition had 2,714 signatures. As you can see, it needs 25,000 in 30 days to receive an official White House response.
