Focus:Civil Rights
Action Request:Think About
Location:United States

I have just sent the following Message to President Obama, Vice-President Biden, and others:
We must absolutely STOP the privatization of our Prisons - and the QUOTAS for filling those Prisons and for Police making arrests! We must UN-privatize Prisons and go back to the previous status! We must start treating Prisoners as Human Beings and AGAIN go back to Rehabilitation as a Goal! not Revenge! We must get rid of all "Three Strikes You're Out" Laws. We must get rid of overly-long sentences. We must get RID of Solitary Confinement except for the most drastic cases! and NEVER for Juveniles! And speaking of Juveniles, we must STOP the School-to-Prison route! We must STOP using extreme punishments and Police measures, for what used to be considered minor infractions in Schools! We must STOP Police Racial Profiling and treating Black and Ethnic Minority kids - and adults! - worse than White people. We must STOP warehousing mentally ill people, and drug-and-alcohol-addicted people, and elderly sick people, in Prisons - they belong in compassionate care facilities! Facilities which we should BUILD, if enough of them don't exist! We DON'T need to build more Prisons, even tho these bring in huge Profit$$$ for their greedy sponsors! Our whole Prison-Industrial Complex is SICK! and a CRIME in and of itself. We must STOP exploiting Prison Labor for cheap Industrial manufactures. We must seek and institute ALTERNATIVES for Juvenile offenders. We must NOT jail Victims of Human Trafficking, of any age! We must RELEASE those in prison for minor Marijuana charges, especially as Marijuana is becoming perfectly Legal in more and more States. We must STOP the Militarization of Police; and we must STOP trigger-happy Police who must be reined in and disciplined, when they shoot unarmed Citizens and Family Pets, often KILLING them! I realize that a President doesn't have the ability to do ALL of this - BUT, if a President or Public Official SHOWS LEADERSHIP and starts a DIALOGUE on these Vital Topics, there is more likelihood of ACTION BEING TAKEN. Please CONSIDER CAREFULLY what is being recommended here. The Civil Liberties of ALL Citizens, are actually in deadly Peril, as things are and have been headed.

[Sent also to my Representative and two Senators.]

[There is a word limit on the site for E-Mails to the Prez; so I stopped at a certain point, certainly more could be said!]
