Help bring my father home
This petition had 54,742 supporters
When I was nine years old my father was arrested and was given not one, but three life sentences without the possibility of parole. My father was a drug dealer, not a murderer, not a rapist...but a drug dealer. My father has now served 11 years of that life sentence. I feel that since I am his oldest child it is my duty to help bring him home for me and my family's sake.
I have three brothers by my father and we all yearn to have our daddy back. If my father is not able to come home than he will no longer be able to see his other children because they are minors and in the state of Oklahoma it is now required that if a child is a minor one of his parents has to be at the visitiation. My father has missed out on my childhood but he still has time to be there for my siblings and to me that’s all that matters.
I do not think that it is fair nor safe to see sex offenders and murders walk around enjoying their freedom when they have physically, mentally, and emotionally harmed people yet my father, who is a non-violent offender, has harmed no one and is expected to die in prison all because he wanted to provide the best way he knew how to. Murderers and rapist get way less time than what my father has been given and it makes no since to me.
If my father is granted his freedom than our broken family will be together as one, like it was supposed to be 11 years ago. My siblings will know what it is like to have our daddy home and he will be able to start over in life. My father has had a change of heart and wants to mentor to young adults who feel that selling drugs is the way to provide for your family. He wants people to know that money was not worth losing 11 years of his freedom from his family especially his seeds.
The only way my father won't die behind prison bars is if Governor Mary Fallin has forgiveness in her heart and grants him clemency.
Every signature matters to us.
