Melissa Simpson started this petition to Governor Ralph S. Northam

The number of inmates that have died in Coffeewood Correctional Facility in Mitchells Virginia could of been avoided in the last several months. For so long in the beginning of this world Pandemic this particular Correctional Facility had not one case. While waitng on the Early Release of Prisoners look now how many have contracted the virus & some also have died. These inmates are living in dorm style sleeping quarters,breathing the same stale oxygen, using the same toilets & to top this some , some Facility Wardens ordered the removal of the sanitized cleaning supplies that were being used before the Cov19..I know this for a fact because I have a son that is incarcerated. Also there is no way the Cov19 could not have entered any of the facilities if an employee from the outside had not brought it there. Visitation of loved ones stopped to avoid this from happening but who failed to monitor the employees that know they are sick & still showed up to work putting thousands of inmates at risk. Please help our loved ones to come home early. . .they are suffering enough emotional & mentally. My oldest son suffers from Epilepsy & he has less than a year to serve. His behavior issues while adjusting to new medications is what caused him a violation of probation. He has 3 beautiful daughters that I use to be able to take to visit with him but now we can video visit and I am thankful for that. My grand daughters are growing up so fast & they miss their daddy very very much. He is housed ar one of the most dangerous level 3 prisons in the state of Virginia. A place where even without the threat of catching the Cov19, men are stabbed and some die everyday because of violence. I pray constantly for his divine protection. I can only imagine what fear flows through the mind of others that have a short time left & are suffering with sicknesses on a daily basis. They are being punished mentally & physically and should be considered for earlier release now. This season is hard for everyone but I know its extra hard for those incarcerated. Free more Inmates soon please!!���������
