Thanks to all 530 of you who took the time to sign Gregory's petition. Once we reach 1000, we will request to meet with Sheriff Dart to present the petition asking for electronic home monitoring. The Chicago Sun-Times reported (7/31) again that Cook County jail is terribly overcrowded and inmates are held much too long, at a high human and economic cost.
Last week I visited Cook County jail for the first time to see Gregory. It was a horrible experience of trying to talk through a tiny opening in a plexiglass wall with other visitors all yelling to be heard next to us. It was totally inhumane for everyone involved. No one deserves to be treated like this. If each of you get just one friend to sign Gregory's petition, we will hit the 1000 mark in no time. We need to act fast. Let's act together and get Gregory out.
