Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

1,872 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.

Please consider those inmates who have a high number of years to serve a lower serving time. I believe everybody deserves a chance to live the only life we get. I am aware that their needs to be consequeces for there actions. But I strongly disagree that there life sentence will rehabilitate them as a living soul. I believe that if they have obtained the requirements as in the Prisoner has to be a Model Inmate, Show Remorse for his crimes, Self help classes for any substance abuse issues, as encouraged to complete any Educational Courses offered to learn a marketable job skills. Lifers are not getting a chance like they should to live a meaningful, fullfilling life as a living human towards there aging days. As a beloved family member of a lifer, our family would be more than grateful to oneday have home our loved one.

A person deserves to be given a second chance.
Deserve a second chance a date to see there hope so they be with there family's
EVERYONE deserves a second chance, be it in prison or in the free world.
Rehabilitation, restoration and reduction of recidivism is possible. Many model programs exist, Texas should have healthy pride in becoming a leader, paving way for healthy numbers. It is unhealthy being the leading execution state. If a prisoner has a projected release date, he has a reason to hope and will increase his prison and free world behavior. May God reach every member of the Texas board of pardon and parole. In Jesus name, Amen.
