My name is Leonard Love.I am a federal inmate, prison advocate and first time offender. I am also a mentor and creator of social programs beneficial to inmates and At-risk Teens.
Please sign my Petition and help me reach 10,000 signatures for the following reasons:
The United States only makes up 5% of the worlds population, yet makes up over 25% of the worlds total prison population. There are over 5000 jails and prisons which cost tax payers over 65 Billion a yr. With President Obama winning his second term, he is more than ever pushing for change in America."NOW" is the time the United States follows the Presidents Vision! The Criminal Justice system as a whole is interested in the rehabilitation of offenders and has developed a myriad of programs such as Mentorships, Re-Entry programs, Employment training, Drug Treatment and Community support systems, which have all been refined and modified to ensure that a "Continuum of care" exist in order to safeguard our communities and to combat recidivism.
Therefore I'm taking this unique opportunity to request your much needed signature for the passing of this petition. A petition for implementing the return of parole in the federal prison system,abolishment of mandatory minimums for first time offenders and non-violent criminals and more skilled trade Apprenticeship programs in all state and federal prisons! The Time is "Now" to fix the unjust and Broken prison system of America.
