Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

1,624 Letters Sent So Far

it is time for us to all take a stand for prison inmates with life sentences. we always talk about how the prison system is there to rehabilitate criminals. the department of corrections along with the parole board has decided that in order to be eligible for parole you have to complete certain requirements. the first requirement that the actual time that the prisoner received has been completed. during this time, the prisoner have to also be a model inmate. The inmate must also show remorse for his crimes. the inmate should also take self help classes for any substance abuse issues. The inmate also should take advantage of any educational courses offered to learn marketable job skills.

the question should now be asked, what else can they do to make themselves eligible for parole? after completing all the requirements said above, the inmate should be allowed to get a parole date. this is not taking place. something needs to be done. Lifers are not getting a second chance like they should.

Our prison rehabilitation programs are not working the way they were intended... I don't think that they are fair across the board...
I think we should also bring parole back to life without! Many of these people were just scared kids at the time of their crimes! These cases should be reviewed as well.
My husband is a lifer and a first-time offender. 21 yrs served on a 26 to life sentence.
AT WHAT TIME DOES A SENTENCE END? CLERK'S SENDING PEOPLE TO PRISON. CORPORATION MAKING MONEY. GOD WILL JUDGE US ALL. PRAY AND ASK GOD TO FORGIVE YOU IF YOU EVERY SERVE ON A JURY OF YOUR PEERS. WHAT IS YOUR PEERS? QUESTION IS OUR WE ALLOWING A CORPORATION DECIDE WHO CAN BE FREE.
This has turned into such a profitable business, the prison system and the board of parole have forgotten that these men and women are human. Some of these inmates are actually innocent even though they were convicted, either way these inmates deserve to get a second chance. This check list system of "requirements" in order to parole is like dangling candy in a child's face. Release these men and woman this has gone way too far.
We really need to try and fix our legal system inmates are people too and everyone makes mistakes. But people can change they just need to be given the chance to do so. They also need the support of others to help them. Everyone should be forgiven and not hold judgement against others for their mistakes. All people including inmates deserve forgiveness.
