Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

1,496 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.

BUDGET CUTS ALSO PREVENT LIFERS FROM DOING WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR PAROLE, ALSO THEIR ISN;T ANY CONSIDERATION FOR AN INMATE PREPARING FOR BOARD.I FEEL THEIR SHOULD BE A SECTION FOR THE INMATES PREPARING FOR BOARD WITH A MORE PEACEFUL ENVROMENT SO THE INMATE CAN GET THOUGHTS TOGETHER. AND MEETINGS WHERE INMATES CAN SHARE INPUT ON WHAT IS EXPECTED AND HOW TO PREPARE IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER..
I AGREE THE ODDS ARE AGAINST THE LIFERS THEIR DAMNED IF THEY DO AND DAMNED IF THEY DONT. THEY ARE TREATED LIKE CRAP , WHERE OTHER OFFENDERS FIRST, SECOND AND THIRD STRIKERS ARE IN AND OUT AND GIVEN MORE UNDERSTANDING AND LET OUT UNDER MORE IMPROVISED GUIDELINES AND SOME HAVE DONE CRIMES OVER N OVER ..
ALOT OF PROGRAMS ARE OUT OF REACH TO LIFERS VERY UN FAIR. THE RE ENTRY HUB SHOULD APPLY TO LIFERS AS ALSO ANY OTHER PROGRAM PROVIDED. IT IS DISCRIMINATION AGAINST LIFERS WITH CAUSE THIS TO BE A HATE CRIME SO TO SPEAK FROM THE CDCR MEMBERS..
Makes no sense for lifers to not be allowed family visits. Prisons have no real system for rehabilitation to begin with; how can we pursue any type of reform or stand against violence, when the basic forms of love and affection are not even permitted? Bring family visits back!! No one wins when love, affection and compassion are restricted.
