If something is not done very soon to stop the Warehousing of our People in the Fed and State Prisons none of us will have any family left ! This Country has more people incarcerated than any other country on earth. There is at least 2.3 million people incarcerated in Fed and State Prisons.If each one of these persons has one family member out here then the prison population doubles. How free are We as families when one family member is locked away for life with no hope,no reason to Dream of a future, No hope for Freedom. On Thursday March 08.2012 there was 217,152 Persons in Fed Prison, on Thursday March 15.2012 that number had increased to 217,390 persons. That is 238 persons more than the week before. Lets do the math; 238 persons times 4=952 persons a month times 12 Months = 11,424 Persons a year! You can find this info at BUREAU OF PRISONS web site. The BOP does POPULATION COUNT every Thursday at 12:00 AM. Who's family is next, and where does this end. We the People can stop this. By Signing this Petition We can let WASHINGTON know that We've had enough. We want Change in the FEDERAL SENTENCING LAW; NO MORE MANDATORY MINIMUMS ; We Want FEDERAL PAROLE REINSTATED , And Above ALL else, We the People Want A SECOND CHANCE LAW PASSED IMMEDIATELY FOR ALL THE LIFERS! THE POLITICIANS want a lifetime of ease in WASHINGTON enjoying LIFE, LIBERTY, AND PURSUING HAPPINESS ,while living in unforgiveness. How about a one time ACT of Forgiveness out of the 490 forgiveness law Yall?

Reform the Criminal Justice System.
Because it is the right thing to do.Tell the Politicians in Washington that We The People Demand that they Stop Warehousing our families. Repeal the Mandatory Minimum Sentencing Law, and Pass the Second Chance Law,Giving the Federal, and State Prisoners the same Chance The Politicians want; which is many terms in Congress because they want what The U S CONSTITUTION Guarantees them;...Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness Why shouldn't all Incarcerated Persons,Federal and State along with their Families (Representing over 6,000,000 People)want and be granted a Second Chance at Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness?
