Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

1,680 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.

Inmates that have followed and abided all rules and regulations. For rehabilitation. And are remorseful for their crime and have changed their life around .and to have a goal or goals in society. And being a productive member to society. Deserves a second chance .no one is perfect so why keep on punishing. Prisoners when they have done all they were supposed. To .Free those that deserve another chance.
People serving life without the possibility of parole deserve 2nd chances too!

Especially if they are first time offenders..
Give lifers a release date.. Allow them to a second chance at freedom. I'm sure that many of these guys have learned their lesson and will strive to be model citizens of their communities. We all deserve a second chance!
I think that they deserved a 2 chance they have kids and family that would want to enjoy their company specialy them cause I sure they will be good out here cause they learn their listen being in their
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.
