    2. Petition by

      James Searcy

      Chicago, IL

Because its illegal and arbitrary!!!  I was in a prison advocacy program between 2000 and 2005. During our tenure, we ascertained iinformation directly from inmate letters, which has led me to introducing this Very Important Petition.  Many issues arose from the "Truth In Sentencing Statue", which is solely in effect to incarcerate and oppress minorities. Have we (as a society) regressed back to the 15th century?? The law itself is Inhumane and an example of whats in the FUTURE for MINORITIES!!

To:
Bobby Rush, U.S Congressman Illinois
Illinois General Assembly, Congress/Senate
Dick Durbin, U.S. Senator Illinois
Illinois Governor
Illinois State Senate
Illinois State House
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Law Legislaters.

----------------
Repeal the "Truth in Sentencing Statue"

Because its illegal and arbitrary!!!

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
