To the Warden at The Polunsky Unit, Death Row in Texas
We the undersigned are asking that visitation rights for family members that are currently banned from visiting thier loved one be temporarily lifted during the holiday season. We also are asking that inmates being punished on level 3 be allowed what the other death row inmates are allowed, at least during the week of the holiday season.
We realise the seriousness of the recent cell phone and contraband issues, and we also realise that the contraband was state wide, and not limited to death row where the media attention was focused.
Some of these inmates may not live another year to see thier loved ones on Christmas, and we feel that a visit from thier loved ones is not too much to ask for. After all these men have been sentenced to die, and that alone is punishment enough.
Please consider this request and choose to do the humane thing.
Respectfuly, the undersigned
