These individuals who have been prosecuted for multiple 924(c) offenses stemming from the same indictment and prosecution are not recidivists and should not have been sentenced as recidivists under this policy. We are committed to making sure that people are adequately informed about this policy. Unfortunately, the great majority who have been prosecuted and or sentenced under 924(c) "stacking" provision operate in the blind when it comes to the policy as a whole. This of course means that family member, loved ones, friends, and potential advocates and supporters are left in the blind also.
Through our movement we're going to change this. More importantly, our objective is to bring awareness to the people on the outside so that they begin leaning on Congress to amend 924(c) "stacking" provision, and make it a true recidivist policy.
Of these roughly 3,000 people we can estimate the number of family members, loved ones, friends, and supporters there are out there; however these numbers balloon when we consider the amount of people connected to these people. What we have created is a general email that we are urging people to forward to Congress, The House and Senate Judiciary Committees, The U.S. Sentencing Commission, and The U.S. Department of Justice. This email is written from the vantage point of one who is aware of 924(c) "stacking" provision.
The email reveals that the sender is conscious of what the Judicial Conference, Representatives Robert Scott and John Conyers, The U.S. Sentencing Commission, and a host of others have repeatedly urged and recommended Congress to do regarding the amending of 924(c) "stacking" provision. The email puts them on notice that we now know. It quotes the positions of the aforementioned persons and entities. It then clarifies that the sender supports the proposed amendments suggested by these persons and or parties, and retroactive application of this judgment.
This email must be made available to the masses. We're exhausting every option, resource, and avenue through this movement. This Spirit of God is our spearhead.
In addition to this email; we also have an online petition that people can read and educate themselves as to why their loved one received a prison sentence that doesn't come close to fitting the crime(s) they committed. This petition asks that they sign and encourages them to get everybody they can to log on and support the movement. We're asking everyone to post all of the relevant information to their Facebook page and other social media outlets. You may also become advocates by seeking support on foot and by word of mouth.
Please send an email to: CitizensAgainst924c@gmail.com
You may enter the word “hope” on the Subject line and also in the Message area. Please wait about 60 seconds for your reply email instructing you on how to sign the petition and support this movement.
Again, we ask that you share the above information with all your family and friends and post to your social media pages and outlets.
We are looking forward to you coming home SOON and with your help of telling everyone that you know about us change will come soon. So get the word out and encourage others to help. It’s up to you now…Amen
