Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

1,572 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.

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.
There should be two year terms for commissioners and board members, because most of them start toact like vigilantes after hearing and reading violent cases and than they take it out on those who have proven to be rehabilitated. Rights violated for those who deserve a second chance!!!
I believe it they did there time . Dif all the workshop they need to come home.and have a family
If a lifer has served more than 30 yrs and has never had any write ups and done all that is required by the pridon system why have they not paroled him?
My Husband has done 21 yrs. On life with possibly of parole. No trouble or anything received set back for 5 yrs more doesnt go up until 2016. Why????
Once their time is put in, requirements met, they were promised release dates. Some after becoming model prisoners, serving 36 years on 2nd degree murder, are still denied. Where is the justice in this. Where is their due process. Why are we wasting tax payers money to incarcerate rehabilitated inmates.
