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.

Family ties encourage inmates to behave better.
Give lifers who are not rapist or molesters their family visits back. They wouldn't be so frustrated and have something to look forward to. It clearly states in the prisons motto to "rehabilitate", well if the prisons in california believe in rehabilitation, then please follow what you propose in rehabilitation. The violence would settle, it's out of control now compared to years ago. My brother worked hard and behaved and disciplined his self in order to keep his family visits with his wife and kid, (10yrs or so ago), so therefore I believe that family visits are beneficial. Every inmate can not be held accountable just because of what one inmate did during his visit. Please give the lifers a second chance to prove themselves and if need be then have the family, spouse of the inmate sign a form stating they are aware of; ie: like when entering a danger zone to work enter at your own risk, we are not responsible, etc... again if a waiver needs to be signed then those who want a visit will do so. Please consider giving inmates serving life a chance to spend with their family. Give these inmates a chance!!
Let them prove themselves again give them conjugal visits

There should never be a time that any human looks at another and decides that person is no longer valuable. Yes if anyone makes a mistake that causes them to be incarcerated, they should be allowed to redeem themselves and become better. Not be dehumanized and considered NOTHING forever.
