I'm signing because I don't believe that Mr. Lyon should still be locked away for crimes committed so long ago because his of a crack addiction. It is my belief that addiction is an illness and should be treated as such.
I thought the 3 strikes law meant at least one or two strikes has to be for violence. A life sentence for crack cocaine? While rapist and pedophiles and violent people get out ALL the time but someone putting something in their own body deserves to be locked up and throw away the key? This is an outrageous injustice. Free this man NOW!
I am signing this because if drugs were the reason behind any wrongdoing. If anyone has ever had delt with being hooked on anything or even read enough information on what happens to someone addicted, would know that, that is not even the same person. And after 23 years of serving time already their are way to many other people out there that walk for worse crimes.
