In 1987, Richard Lee McNair was sentenced to two life sentences for murder during a botched burglary. He is most well known for escaping prison and convincing a police officer that he was a jogger. Since his recapture in 2008, he has spent each day of his life incarcerated in ADX Florence supermax prison in a small cell shared with 5 other prisoners. This top security level prison is home to other inmates such as a terrorist who carried out 9/11, Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City Bombing), and potentially will hold Joaquín Guzmán, also known as El Chapo. McNair has described them as “very sick people in here... Animals you would never want living near your family or the public in general”.

As you can probably tell, McNair’s crime is no where near as severe as the other inmates, and not only that, he has proven his reformed nature since his conviction in 1987. Officers described him as respectful, polite, and obedient during his recapture. My petition is to either pardon this man who has shown his reform or move him out of ADX Florence which is a top level prison for the worst of criminals, which he is not.
