Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

Messages 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. <br />
<br />
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.

My childhood friend has been in prison 18 years. He received a 9 year sentence for attempted murder and 25 years for a gun enhancement the D.A (according to CA law) had every right to tack on. He was 19 when he committed the crime and now is 38. It's unfortunate that justice and the law are two completely different arguments. If you send a child to live among positive; educated; respectful human beings the likeliness of that child becoming like them is pretty likely however, if you send a child to live among liars; manipulators; the odds are just as likely... and that is actually what the state of California has done to anyone that has made a mistake. It's difficult to stay hopeful when the odds are in fact against you.

My husband is returning back to prison on a violation of his parole. Is he going to have to serve another 15 years in order to get out on parole. There is no help for these Men or Women we they are released back to society, why not further their rehabilitation by being compassionate about their wanting to change. HELP is all they are looking for but this system is not for any of us. A lot of what we see is individuals acting out because there is no HOPE!!!!

We people should be compationate about lots of inmates, :-)especially those who being Juveniles got into trouble, have had good behavior and have served a good share of their sentences. I am sure a second chance would not only benefit them but society on general & at the same time would save hundreds of thousands of dollars. .
