Help to possibly pardon Alan Turing, hero to the Computer Science world, for 
his "homosexual crimes" for which he committed suicide over in 1954, years 
before laws against homosexuals were dropped. The aim of the petition is to get 
the Prime Minister to pardon Alan Turing, after all the hard work he provided 
from code-cracking in WW2 to his theories of Artificial Intelligence, where the 
Turing Test was devised.
