Serve 65% of time in prison instead of 85% for non-violent crimes

Messages Sent So Far
Change the law for non-violent offenders to serve 65% of their time instead of 85%. Too much time is being giving to non-violent offenders. Most get more time than the person that killed, raped, molested, etc and it's not fair.. Fairness for everyone is all I'm seeking regardless of who you are. The law that's in effect now targets certain people.

Pass this bill! There are sex offenders that get less time. We the people are pleading for a 65% law for nonviolent criminals! With good behavior and the right classes these people should have a chance to show they are productive members of society! We all make mistakes! Lets help families get their loved ones home! Second chance for ALL first time nonviolent offenders!

This needs to finally pass in Arizona to make more room for the violent criminals. I would rather my tax money go towards housing the violent criminals for decades rather then the non-violent criminals for decades.
