PLEASE GIVE LIFERS CONJUCAL VISITS BACK.

26,302 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.

Please give lifers back conjugal visits
My husband is a lifer and I think they need family visits just as much as we do, to spend time with them. They are under stress too because they son they that chance to spend days with their families. Please this would me the world to us especially our children.
I beg of you to please continue to help these lifers have some type of true family visiting again. Spread the word to your friends and family and have them sign this. My best friend is a lifer and I want to marry him if family visits are restored so he can be with someone who loves him and he loves. Having that bond with someone can truly change the anger that these men and women suffer daily. you have stripped them of their freedom, and any type of true contact with someone, yet wonder why there is so much violence on the yards. Give these men and women something to look forward to, a reason to act right and strive to do better.
They deserve to have something to look forward to
Hello my name is Tracy I am engaged to a man who is serving a life sentence in one of California's state prisons. I do believe in my heart some of these men who have life are capable to have a meaningful relationship and some don't deserve it. I do believe that all lifers shouldn't be punished for one man who messed it up for all. I believe the one who does not have no criminal background of domestic violence or crimes against children like a pedophile should not get them. My husband case is far from those two, I tend to get married this year in 2016 and I just want to say my fiancé is innocent and was wrongly convicted he has been in jail for 17 years and I do believe these family visits will help him clear his mind and stay positive and keep out of trouble. I do believe that conjugal visits would help inmates who are serving life and do believe the crime rate will go down. So please consider giving the conjugal visits back to our loved ones.
It's unfair to take away their privilege to have a conjugal visit, they can barely kiss or be affectionate to their spouse in the visiting room.
