All Americans, including those who are incarcerated or facing minor charges, are entitled to inalienable rights including a reasonable assumption of safety. Please release medically vulnerable inmates who are already towards the end of their sentences to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
I’m signing this petition because my loved one is in the women’s jail and needs to be home with her baby girl. I do not want to see her separated from her daughter anymore and especially don’t want to lose my sister due to poor situations in jail.
I would really appreciate if you added to the petition the people (nonviolent offenders) who are incarcerated in "pretrial detention" without bail and without a sentence or judgement, especially when the courts are closed. My sister is in OC jail without bail since mid-February, and has not been sentenced. She should be able to be home until her court date.
Please don't let inhumanity cause the unnecessary deaths of inmates during the Coronavirus pandemic as it hits Orange County. The pandemic is a humanitarian crisis that does not need to be made worse by the OC Sherriff's Department.
