7)Ron Schilling 32219, KMCI
Ron Schilling with daughter, taken approximately 10 years ago.
Born In 1951, Ron Schilling is now 64 and has been incarcerated since 1976, 39 plus years. Ron was granted parole by Leonard Wells until he became victim of the new tough on crime rhetoric that also cost Leonard Wells his job. Since then he has been back and forth from minimum to medium and is transferred without a word on why and is convinced there is retaliation going on.Here is what his social worker said:
"Mr Schilling has a keen mind and a good heart. If he is not a successful candidate for
restoration to the community, then no one on my caseload could possibly be!"

9) Luis Ramrez -a victim of solitary torture


Luis with family as child. He is in brown suit next to his mother
Luis Ramirez urgently needs help. He has been stuck in seg forever ,was released briefly to general and did what prisoners call "Snapped out",stabbed a guard with a pencil. the guard was back at work the next day and Luis says he
blacked out and does not remember the incident. He is back in seg with pending criminal charges. We are calling for release on parole , where he would do well with his family OR a transfer to Mendota Mental Health Clinic- away from vicious cycle  in the DOC. WE also ask for an investigation. He is convicted of armed robbery where no one was hurt. Because he harms himself in seg he is perpetually given new conduct reports and because he is there, he is not allowed the programming he needs. Help us get him out of this terrible cycle the prison has made him mentally ill. Read and sign the petition please.

This from his fiance:


"Luis is a loving, kind and intelligent man. He has been through a lot and has made his share of mistakes. However, he really is trying to be rehabilitated so he may come home to his family. He and I are planning to marry and start a family once he is paroled and able. He is tired of the prison life, the criminal lifestyle and negative energy from prison administration, guards and other prisoners. He made a mistake but should not have to pay for it with his life. Many of us have made mistakes in life or done things we are ashamed of, the only difference between us and people who are incarcerated is they got caught. Please support this petition so Luis may get the help he needs to be a productive member of society and he can come home to his family."
