Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

1,420 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.

Mistakes are made but change is possible for everyone. Second chances should be given.
Help our lifer have a chance n hope
It goes beyond wanting them home. They NEED to be home..I believe those who have made a change deserves a chance...I hope to one day have those special unmonitered EVERYTHING moments with my husband..
I believe that those inmates that are programing, have no disiplinary actions for 5 years plus, and have served no less than 7-12 years of their sentence, should be considered for a release date. I know that this would also aid in the reduction of the inmate over crowding. I believe that an inmate's charges should be a consideration of how much time should be served as well how much time they need to be disciplinary free.
