FYI, Millions for Prisoners Human Rights March is in Washington, DC August 19, 2017 beginning at 11:30 a.m. Please plan to attend! They need to see our faces! They need to see the masses who are impacted by unfair practices and sentencing!
I would like to attend as I live In Maryland. Is there a link or FB event page where I could get more information?

I don't think they're blaming the system. They are blaming the lopsided justice system that gives one person life for nonviolent crimes under broad laws like RICO while sending home violent offenders (especially since most are state). The disparities in the laws and sentencing guidelines are at issue. Not the crimes themselves.

Since we can vote only once, it should be accurate as long as everyone takes part!

You all are what makes the Federal Forum on PTO tick...you all are great!

To both of you, I sorta know how you are feeling. My son got out from state prison, (he was there for violating his probation by getting arrested) and by mistake he got released and got to stay out all the while going to his P.O. every month for 9 months. He thought that maybe they just forgot about his charges. He did better than he has ever done on probation, we went to see all grandparents he spent the whole weekend with his son and that Monday morning he got a call from his P.O. and said he had the marshalls there waiting to arrest him. I’ve had to surrender my son 1 time state and then this time and that drive there knowing he was going away for 12 years was one of the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I haven’t seen him in 1 1/2 yrs because of how far they moved him and now he is way up in New Hampshire, I’m the farthest south and he’s the farthest north. It will be spring before I can try to get up there.
Back to the point, I understand that feeling of getting your mind ready for this and it’s hard. They have email thank goodness and he can call 300 min a month. Tell your love ones to get a local number to where you are going and the price is reasonable, I believe Pacific is the company. He’s been in Federal for 3 1/2 yrs now.
I wish both of you well and Godspeed also.

Question

My fiancé just turned in 3 days ago to start his 13.5 year sentence god my heart is breaking but I'm going to take it day by day I've calculated about 4,743 days at 13 yrs so hopefully we can do this. We have been together a year and a half tell me how crazy this is now he's got busted 2 years ago with 5 lbs of meth 2 long guns and 1 pistol that wasn't his they belong to someone else he was holding on to them for the people any ways no past violent criminal record at all and he passed every drug test reported every time always showed up for court everything got a job and he got me clean we didn't know each other until 6 months after he got busted but he was clean and he wanted to help me change my life he's a wonderful person with an amazing heart I'm just so depressed about this
