FATHER AND SON ----SEPARATED BY PRISON BARS AND DEATH-04/27/2020 MY GRANDSON WAS KILLED IN ST. MARTIN MS.---his killers were set free by an almost ALL WHITE SECRET GRAND JURY in Jackson County. My Son was sentenced to 10 years Day 4 Day under Mississippi's Overly Harsh Habitual Offender Laws--for a low level drug addiction related non violent victimless offense. This is what our Jails and Prisons are full of and it's a waste of life and government taxpayers monies ----- Please Help us get others like him home to their children and families who need them by supporting "Positive Change"

END abusive OPPRESSIVE MASS INCARCERATIONS-----Habitual Offender Laws have caused the Penal System to be overrun with Non Violent Inmates who do not deserve such severe punishments that do not fit the offense. This is a Counter Productive Circumstance that does MAJOR EMOTIONAL MENTAL DAMAGE TO this type of Inmate and Most importantly IT HARMS THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES OF THESE LOW LEVEL OFFENDERS.

REPEAL REVISE HABITUAL OFFENDER LAWS FOR NON-VIOLENT VICTIMLESS OFFENSES----Consideration for resentencing if already serving and if facing a charge that is substance addiction related that they be considered for Alternative Sentencing Program

ENACT ALTERNATIVE SENTENCING LAWS FOR "DRUG ADDICTION RELATED OFFENSES" ----- the majority of inmates nationwide are incarcerated for addiction related offenses and have been sentenced harshly and abusively by lengthy sentences that do not fit the offense. 

LEGALIZE MARIJUANA------Marijuana is used "MEDICALLY" to treat many diseases and disorders. To criminally incarcerate individuals for a product that is already been voted by the MASSES IN FAVOR OF LEGALIZATION is strictly for the purpose of promoting "Prisons 4 Profit" and not for making our streets and neighborhoods safer. 

PETITION FOR "TRANSPARENCY within our Police and Judicial Systems-----Advocate for "POLICING POLICY REVISIONS" ---- "Judicial Procedure Revisions" "Amendment of Antiquated Laws"-----many of our Present Day Judicial Procedures and Policing Practices allow or enable the ability to Abuse them. The First being "Police Targeting" based on their opinion of "they look suspicious"??? Unless an officer observes an illegal act they should not be approaching people----"Indictment Procedure/Secret Grand Jury Process is another "Blind Spot" that can be easily manipulated by Officers/Prosecutors even some Judges and there is absolutely "No Transparency" at all in these procedures. District Attorneys are also included as they too can abuse this procedure by "Silencing" without any reason or explanation. We Must have Transparency. Too much is done behind closed doors that allows for abuses to occur without detection or accountability.

ARREST & SEARCH WARRANTS there have been too many Deaths of Both Police Officers and Innocent Civilians as a result of what in our opinion is "Unconstitutional No Knock Warrants"----Safeguards need to be put in place that require more from Police as in time documented evidence (Not just the word of 1 Officer or Informant) and a "Probable Cause Hearing" in front of a Judge should be required before any Search Warrant is issued.
