WARDEN CAIN HAS ALREADY PUT A BAN ON INMATES TAKING PHOTOS TO SEND TO FAMILY & FRIENDS! NOW HE IS BOWING DOWN TO PRESSURE FROM SOME PRESSURE GROUP TO STOP ALL CONTACT VISITS! THIS IS A LIFELINE FOR THE INMATES TO SHARE SOME DEEPLY PRECIOUS MOMENTS IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH THEIR LOVED ONES. THESE ARE CALLED 'SPECIAL VISITS' BY THE FAMILIES BECAUSE IT IS JUST THAT..NO MORE, NO LESS! WARDEN CAIN NEEDS TO BE REMINDED OF HIS STATEMENT ON FILM, WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO ANYONE ON YOUTUBE...WHERE HE CLEARLY STATES, WHILE PREACHING OF HIS DEEP CHRISTIAN VALUES..THAT HE STANDS BY HIS DECISION TO ALLOW 'SPECIAL VISITS'....BECAUSE HE FEELS THAT THESE ARE DEEPLY IMPORTANT FOR & TO THE FAMILIES/LOVED ONES CONCERNED!WARDEN CAIN GOES ON TO MENTION THAT, IN HIS EYES, THE MOTHER, SISTER ETC OF THE INMATE HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING WRONG OR COMMITTED ANY CRIME, SO WHY SHOULD THEY BE PUNISHED AND DENIED SUCH VISITS?? PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION ON BEHALF OF THE INMATES & THEIR FAMILIES, PLEASE SHARE & ENCOURAGE YOUR FRIENDS TO SIGN. WARDEN CAIN NEEDS TO FEEL THE PRESSURE FROM THOSE OF US WHO CARE & BE REMINDED OF HIS COMMENTS . DOES HE NO LONGER STAND BY HIS GOOD, GODLY COMMENTS ANY LONGER?? IS IT MORALLY & HUMANELY RIGHT THAT A MOTHER/FATHER SHOULD ALSO BE DENIED THESE PRECIOUS MOMENTS WITH THEIR CHILD...WHO IS ALREADY ENDURING THE PAIN & TORMENT OF BEING ON DEATH ROW? MY THOUGHTS & PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE PARENTS & LOVED ONES OF THEIR VICTIMS, BUT ACTIONS SUCH AS THESE WILL NOT BRING THEM ANY HEALING OR CLOSURE. PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PETITION.

      After discussing this action further with the people concerned, it seems they need this action and any support available. The inmates & their families need to know that they are not alone in this painful & shameful action imposed by Warden Cain. I would encourage you all to please share & forward this campaign to as many as possible. The inmates are powerless and have no voice..please stand with them in sympathy & solidarity.

      As a penfriend for 11 years of an inmate who for the last 2 years has been cooped up on lockdown and hasnt had a visit in all that time I know what this has done to him and his daughters. It is inhuman to deny those girls the chance to see their father without a screen and shackles. It horrifies me and thousands of others outside the USA to see the way inmates are treated over there. Life imprisonment for robbery????? Crazy - people make mistakes and can then go on to live a decent life - come on Warden Cain - you claim to be a Chrisitan - let us see that - what harm is there in allowing photographs being taken? What harm in allowing contact visits with close family - you would find your inmates would be far calmer and happier if you allowed these simple kindnesses.

      I am a very close family member and feel it very important to families and inmates to visit. little children need to know both of their parents and not forget them.

      I am signing this petition due to the fact I feel that the system all across the United States is so unjust and wardens have too much authority...In my opinion it is wrong to deny visits to any inmate, what if this was your family members Warden Cain? Then how would you feel? I totally support this petition!

      Nothing good comes from blocking inmates from visitation. The evidence is overwhelming to keep visitation in place: http://www.doc.state.mn.us/publications/documents/11-11PrisonVisitationResearchinBrief_Final.pdf

      inmates are people too! sure they committed some type(s) of crime(s), thats why there incaresrated. we all know and understand this fact. but i beleive family visits and "special visits" are very important, not only for the family ,but i think the inmates need this too. most of them can come home and rebuild a life crime free, these ( special ) visits help them know and feel we truley love and care about them, in turn it helps them like themselves, want to get out and live a free life, happiness and better themselfs . an inmate with no family or any type of visits will feel lonely,lost,unloved, feel no one cares about them, or wants them. so in turn, then why should they care, making them give up on them self also, so if and when they come home, there alone, feel unloved, and useless.so why care about staying straight, getting into trouble, back to jail. these visits can help prevent this from a recycle of life.. i visit my man in prison, no contact, i felt hurt, even considering not going back... now wonder how he feels!
