Gwen ware started this petition to Gov.JB Pritzker

NO OTHER RACE OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE HAD TO ENDURE THE ATROCITIES THAT BLACK PEOPLE.ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.THIS KIND OF INJUSTICE IS ALIVE AND WELL TODAY.

RACE IS A FACT OF LIFE, JUST AS SLAVERY WAS.

SLAVERY IS AMERICA'S ORIGINAL SIN AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE. SYSTEMATIC, INSTITUTIONAL, AND STRUCTURAL RACISM HAS IT'S DNA IN EVERY FACET OF AMERICAN LIFE.THIS ALSO RINGS VERY LOUD AND TRUE WITH THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM. SINCE IT'S INCEPTION, THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM HAS BEEN CORRUPT TOWARDS BLACK PEOPLE. FROM LYNCHINGS, KANGAROO COURT PROCEEDINGS,TORTURINGS,FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT SUCH AS TO INDUCE FALSE CONFESSIONS, TO FRAMING INNOCENT WOMEN AND CHILDREN. NOT TO MENTION ALL THE LIES TOLD BY POLICE OFFICIALS, ALL IN THE NAME OF CONVICTION. THE INTIMIDATION IS THE WORST. 

I WOULD LIKE TO FOCUS SPECIFICALLY ON THE 1970'S , 80'S, 90'S, AND NOW THE 2000'S.BECAUSE THERE ARE BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARE STILL INCARCERATED SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THAT FACT THAT: THEY ARE BLACK.BEING BLACK IN AMERICA'S CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM IS DEFINITELY HAS IT'S CURSES. IT'S A CURSE OF "SUBJECTIVE LINE-UPS, CRIMINAL PATTERNS AND PRACTICES BY CORRUPT LAW ENFORCEMENT, PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT AND VINDICTIVE PROSECUTION. LET'S NOT FORGET,BLATANT ABUSE OF DISCRETION BY TRAIL JUDGES, ERRONEOUS, EGGREGIOUS AND EXCESSIVE SENTENCES; IMPOSED SOLELY AND HARSHER ON BLACK PEOPLE, AND ALL PEOPLE OF COLOR.

LET ME POINT OUT A FEW MORE VALID POINTS TO SUPPORT MY ARGUMENT:

THE BOGUS 1994 CRIME BILL.

UNCONSTITUTIONAL TRUTH IN SENTENCING 

ARMED AND HABITUAL INVESTIGATIVE ALERTS,DESIGNED TO TO INCARCERATE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE OF COLOR 

INCOMPETENT AND INEFFECTIVE ASSISTANCE OF DEFENCE COUNSEL 

RACIALLY MOTIVATED 402- CONFERENCES; AND THE INJUSTICE LIST GOES ON......

GOVERNOR PRITZKER, WE'RE ASKING THAT YOU COMMUTE  ALL OF THE PEOPLE OF COLOR SENTENCES OF 20 YEARS OR MORE, TO TIME SERVED.

100% OF 20 YEARS IS SUFFICIENT ENOUGH TIME SERVED IN AN UNJUST SYSTEM. 

POWERFUL DEMOCRATIC LEADERS, AND SUPPORTERS OF THE 1994 CRIME BILL HAS SINCED APOLOGIZED TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY FOR THIS BILL, AFTER SEEING IT'S  DEVASTATING EFFECT IT HAS HAD ON THE BLACK COMMUNITY. 

PRISONERS THAT HAVE SERVED MORE THAN 20 YEARS, ARE LESS LIKELY TO REOFFEND. RECIDIVISM RATES ARE AS LOW AS 5% ON THESE SPECIFIC PRISONERS. 

TO WITNESS GEORGE FLOYD'S MURDER ON T.V., AND SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, GAVE THE WORLD AND 8 MIN.AND 46 SEC. GLIMPSE OF THE SYSTEMIC RACISM THAT'S BEEN AMERICA'S "CALLING CARD" TO BLACK PEOPLE FOR FAR TOO LONG.

THIS PETITION FOCUSES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN WHERE BLACK PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MURDERD IN THE STREET FOR ALL TO WITNESS, BUT THE SAME KNEE OF RACISM IS ON THEIR NECKS,PROVE WITH THEM SERVING ASTRONOMICAL SENTENCES,WITH NO REGARD FOR REHABILITATION,SOME HAVE THE " NEW DEATH PENALTY " WHICH IS AN INJUST SYSTEM. 

WE BELIEVE THAT IT'S UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND UNJUST WITH THE SYSTEMATIC RACISM PLAYING A MAJOR PART IN BLACK PEOPLE'S INCARCERATION, AND 20 YEARS OR MORE IN AN UNJUST SYSTEM IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TIME FOR GOVERNOR PRITZKER TO COMMUTE THEIR SENTENCES. 

AS WITH A "CLEMENCY TYPE" TIME- SERVED PROCEDURE, THIS WILL PROVIDE IMMEDIATE RELIEF FOR THESE BLACK MEN AND WOMEN. 

TAKING SUCH A STAND WILL ALSO FREE UP MONIES ALLOCATED FOR INCARCERATION, TO GO TOWARDS EDUCATION AND HOUSING. 

LASTLY THIS PETITION IS ASKING YOU GOVERNOR TO DEFUND A RACIST CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM. A ORGANIZATION THAT IS CORRUPT TOWARDS BLACK PEOPLE. HELP THE DOWN TROUTNED GET RELIEF BY SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT THIS PETITION. 

EVERYONE THAT LOGS ONTO " CHANGE.ORG/ 20 YEARS IS MORE THAN ENOUGH ",AND THEN GO TO THE EMAIL ADDRESS, THIS IS HOW YOU CAN SIGN THIS PETITION. 

THE SYSTEM IS UNJUST and UNFAIR. 

GOVERNOR PRITZKER IS FAIR AND JUST.

PLEASE INVEST IN THESE MEN AND WOMEN, SO THAT THEY CAN HAVE A CHANCE TO INVEST POSITIVELY IN OUR COMMUNITY. 

THANK YOU
