PLEASE GIVE LIFERS CONJUCAL VISITS BACK.

26,602 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.

I and my great-granddaughter would love to stay with my grandson overnight. It's a long drive and we have been hoping for this for a long time.
I PERSONALLY DON'T THINK THAT LIFERS SHOULD RECEIVE CONJUGAL VISITS ESPECIALLY IF THEY TOOK SOMEONE LIFE OR ROBBED OR EVEN TOOK SOMEONE BY GUNPOINT, DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS COULD/DONE TO SOMEONE INCLUDING THEIR FAMILIES ESPECIALLY IF THE PERSON IS DECEASED. THE PERSON IS STILL LIVING AND COULD SEE. SPEAK, TOUCH AND SPEND TIME WITH HIS FAMILY WHILE THE PERSON THAT WAS KILLED "CAN'T" EVER IN THIS LIFE SEE HIS FAMILY, KIDS, WIFE/HUSBAND AGAIN, THESE PEOPLE GO BACK AND FORTH TO JAIL UNTIL THE SYSTEM IS TIRED OF THEM FOR NUMEROUS CRIMES THAT THEY COMMIT. MANY WOMEN ARE GETTING MARRIED TO THESE INMATES KNOWING THEY HAVE LIFE IN PRISON, IT'S NOT SOCIETY FAULT THAT YOU CHOOSE TO MARRY SOMEONE ESPECIALLY SOMEONE WHOM HAS COMMITTED MURDER. I HOPE AND PRAY THAT CONGRESS DON'T ALLOW THESE INMATES CONJUGAL VISITS THEY DON'T DESERVE THEM BECAUSE THE FAMILIES COULD NEVER GET ANY VISIT WITH THEIR DECEASED LOVED ONE.IF THEY DO PASS THIS BILL IT SHOULD STIPULATE THAT THEVICTIMS NEEDS TO BE PAID IN FULL FOR RESTITUTION AND I CAN MOST GUARANTEE THESE INMATES AND THEIR FAMILIES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH THIS TYPE OF MONEY... I AM A VICTIM OF A PERSON WO WAS KILLED BY A GANGBANGER SHOT 5 TIMES AT THE AGE OF 28,AND MYNEPHEW HAD 3 CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12 BACK IN 2001 WHEN THIS INDIVIDUAL WAS SCARED TO FIGHT BUT CHOOSE TO TAKE HIS LIFE.SO PLEASE HEAR MY CRY AND DON'T ALLOW THIS TO OCCUR WITH THIS PETITION..
Give them back their humanity, give back family visits to non sexual deviants lifers conjugal visits!!
Lifers should get back their family visits. It will better themselves spending time with love ones, lower the violence against inmates & staff within, and appreciate the things of laws you provide by giving good behavior you are rewarded with family visits.. not everyone should be punished for another man action and he didn't care for life..what was left he had.
Punishing every man, every family for another's mistake is unconstitutional. So should every man be punished if one man cheats on his wife.
