PLEASE GIVE LIFERS CONJUCAL VISITS BACK.

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 restore family visits for lifers. They are the people who deserve family visits more than inmates who will eventually get out and be able to spent time with there families at home again.
