PLEASE GIVE LIFERS CONJUCAL VISITS BACK.

You should sign this petition to give lifers there conjucal visits back so that we can lower the amount of prison violence against imates and officers.

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.

Sanctity of marriage is important, why should inmates be the exception to this rule? As long as they are on good behavior, their original crime was not sexual in nature, and they have no history of sexual or domestic abuse both outside and inside prison, then they should be allowed a conjugal visit every so often.

I highly respect and appreciate the hard work that's being done on the hill. However, I would like to request that you give lifers back their family visits, this is a Time when we need HELP from all aspects to help guide these Fatherless/Motherless children in the right direction. Look the system is not set up to raise anyone else's child, yes we have a lot of righteous programs that are dried and yes I love being able to be there for fatherless children but I would love to more if these children have a chance to set and spend some 1 on 1 time... Believe me parents do not want their children to commit crimes no loving parent wants that.. There's many individuals in prison who need to be there, at this time their no good to anyone. However, their are many many prisoners who are trying to truly repent their transgressions and want to make a change for the better.

I have been visiting my son for over 22 yrs. and often I feel that we would enjoy some time alone for a weekend. He is very strong in his faith in God and I have been diagnoised with lung cancer and would love to be able to pray and praise God without distractions. It is my belief that he would benefit greatly away from the constant violence within prison life.
