Katrena Marcum started this petition to North Carolina Department of Public Safety

In the matter of reform of the Parole review, custody review and minimum level review, now comes below undersigned petitioners confirming 100% recommendation and support of the Proposal reform within the letter to the NC Prison Commissioner Mr. Todd Ishee.  Reforming the current system that consist of unethical, bias, discriminatory and collusive policies that have failed and hindered the progression, equality and rehabilitation of not only these men and women and their families but also the laws in which they were tried, convicted and sentenced under.

From this moment forward, we stand untied and fully committed to help bringing reform and changes that show 100% transparency and equality of the progress and transition of them and the effort given by not only the NC DPS and the NC Parole Commission but also the politicians of truly helping these men and women as they claimed to do for the past two decades

We, family, friends, churches, community leaders, organizations and even victims of crimes ourselves, pledge to lend our support and devote every resource at our disposal to aid these men and women so they can return back to society and our communities as positive, dedicated strong minded and productive law-abiding citizens.  We allowed these men and women to be dehumanized, ridiculed, and cast away for to long.  We remained silent for too long but now our voices as well, shall be heard.  Not only through phone calls, letters, petitions, meetings and potential rallies by most important our votes.  For it is not about Democrat or Republican, but compassion or non-compassion for our loved ones.  It is not about Black or White, but fairness or unfairness.  It is not about Right Wing or Left Wing, but about right or wrong and it will not be about budget or cost, but humanity or inhumanity that is given towards these men and women.  No longer will our voices and votes be supportive of individuals that we know have the lock ‘em up an d throw away the key mentality or for individuals who will continue to disregard our voices and continue to treat these men and women as warehouse inventory, because of political motives.  Our hope is that enough members and officials of the new elected administration have the same belief to at least balance out those who do not agree, like those who did not in the previous two administrations.

Obviously, there are those who could care less or nothing for these individuals, their conditions, their opportunity to be rehabilitated and may feel as they deserve such treatment.  Disregarding the fact that, through all of the wrong choices, decisions and issues they may have had that eventually lead to incarceration, like you and ourselves they are capable of change.  Most of whom have changed.  They are still Human Beings!  Our sons, grandsons, fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews, cousins, friends, boyfriends, fiancés and husbands.  They are our daughters, granddaughters, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, cousins, friends, girlfriends, fiancés and wives.

Again, We, the undersigned, family, friends, churches, community leaders, organizations and even victims of crimes ourselves who urge our leaders act now on reforming the Parole review, custody review and minimum level review policies that would enable the old law inmates who have shown change and who have done everything asked of by DPS to have the same opportunity to progress and transition through system just as the structured sentenced inmates.  If called upon to verify the veracity of this petition, we have volunteered our names and signatures affirmed hereto that we will do so.
