PLEASE GIVE LIFERS CONJUCAL VISITS BACK.

27,586 Letters Sent So Far

LIFERS DESERVE A LIFE INSIDE OF PRISON. EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE MADE MISTAKES THAT WILL KEEP THEM IN PRISON FOREVER, THEY STILL DESERVE TO HAVE SOME FORM OF LIFE. EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES AND DEPENDING ON THE CRIME AND THE PRISONER'S INSIDE BEHAVIOR, THEY SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO FAMILY/CONJUGAL VISIT BASED ON THEIR BEHAVIOR INSIDE THE PRISON AND AS LONG AS THEY DON'T HAVE A SEXUAL CRIME OF ANY NATURE. THE GOVERNORS OF CALIFORNIA WITH THE EXCEPTION OF JERRY BROWN HAS TAKEN AWAY THE PRIVILEGES OF LIFERS AND LEAVES THEM WITH NOTHING TO LOSE. BUT IF THEY GIVE LIFERS BACK THE OPPORTUNITIES TO EARN A FAMILY/CONJUGAL VISIT, IT WILL CUT DOWN THE INTERNAL VIOLENCE AND WILL GIVE THE LIFERS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO AND MAKE THEM WANT TO BEHAVE. PRISON VIOLENCE HAS WENT UP BY 27% FOR INMATE ON INMATE CRIMES AND 32% FOR INMATE ON STAFF CRIMES. OUR LOVEONES HAVE BEEN PUNISHED FOR YEARS BEHIND A CRIME THAT ONE LIFER COMMITED DURING A CONJUCAL VISIT HIS ACTIONS WERE UNEXCEPTABLE. LETS NOT RUIN THOUSANDS OF INMATES CHANCES TO REHABILITATE THERE SELFS BY KEEPING FAMILY CLOSE LETS GIVE THEM SOME TYPE OF HOPE TO HOLD ON TO AND IN RETURN I AM POSITIVE THAT THE CRIME RATE WILL GO DOWN BY NUMEROUS NUMBERS. PRISONS HAVE TRYED SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO TRY TO CALM THE VIOLENCE DOWN BUT NO ONE HAS EVEN TRY TO GIVE THEM THE ONE THING THAT WILL KEEP THEM OUT OF TROUBLE THE CHANCE TO SPEND TIME WITH THERE FAMILY. PLEASE CONSIDER OUR PETITION FOR THE LIFERS IN CALIFORNIA STATE PRISONS.

My fiance & I have been together since December 2005, when he got arrested we never expected that he'd get life...but he did (75+). After 10 year's we're finally taking the next big step in our relationship & scheduled to get married in August 2017. We were both so young (20/21)when this unfortunate situation occurred & we just want to be able to spend more quality time together & start a family. I'm praying for all inmates/family's & to all the wives- hang in there, better days are coming for us all. Have a blessed day!
My husband is serving 58 yrs to life. 12 yrs down and i would love to be able to hold him again..spend time with our kids. Please we need family visits we need that time.
