Resurrect Parole For Federal Prisoners

Messages Sent So Far
Nearly 30 years ago, The Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 (The Act) gave birth to the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC) as an independent agency of the Judicial branch. (Section 994(a) of title 28) The Act also abolished discretionary federal parole, consequently, greatly increasing the expected time a federal prisoner must serve in prison, which is, by far, the most dominating factor contributing to the federal prison population explosion, from 1987-2013. It's been a mass stockpiling of human beings that is soon to reach a quarter-million federal prisoners.
The rapid population growth of federal prisoners, as explained above, is quickly and positively undermining public confidence in the criminal justice system as a whole, if not promoting disrespect for it, particularly since the Sentencing Commission has from the start ignored the will of Congress concerning prison overcrowding as expressed in Section 994(g) of title 28.
From it's inception, The Act has spawned the construction of dozens of federal prisons spanning from one end of the country to the other, at an average cost of 50-million dollars a piece to build.
Slightly modifying The Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 by restoring federal parole would easily save American taxpayers, and the government billions of dollars, reduce prison violence by offering prisoners the incentive of applying for parole with satisfactory conduct while incarcerated, and as U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. seeks...to reduce the monstrous prison overcrowding calamity that The Act brought into existence as a result of mid-'80's policy decisions. Policies that have never evolved with the passage of time.
Seeing that the U.S. Sentencing Commission is the direct offspring of The Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, which is the out-of-control defiant child of Congress, it is only Congress that can control it and rectify the glaring error of its ways.
There is no better time than the present time to resurrect parole for the 219, 200 and growing number of federal prisoners.

THIS SYSTEM IS SO UNFAIR... WHY CAN'T A FEDERAL INMATE APPLY AND GET A PAROLE.. ESPECIALLY THE ONES THAT ARE FIRST TIME OFFENDERS AND DID NOT USE A GUN IN THIER CRIME. WHAT A WASTE OF HUMAN LIVES. THEY COULD BE OUT WORKING AND TAKING CARE OF THIER FAMILIES.WE JUST PUT THEM IN HOLDING CELLS LIKE A ANIMAL. I SAW MY SON OVER THE WEEKEND. PEOPLE IN A WORK CAMP WITH A SATILITE TO KEEP THEM IN WOULD BE BETTER OFF AT HOME, ON PAROLE.. AN ANKLE BRACKET IS LOTS CHAPER THAN A PRISON CAMP, MY SON IS SO SICK WITH A HEARING PROBLEM. A 12 INCH HERNIA.. I COULD SEE HIS INTESTINES HANGING OUT BEHIND HIS SHIRT... HE CAN'T HEAR OVER THE P A SYSTEM WHEN THE GURADS ARE HELLING AT HIM... NOW THEY ARE PUTTING HIM IN SERIOUS HARM WHEN HE CAN'T HEAR DIRECTIONS GIVEN BY A STAFF MEMBER... HAD AN ANSWER FROM WARDEN C.R. GOETZ SAYING HIS HEARING WAS NOT THAT BAD. SHE SAYS NO HEARING AID IS NEEDED AND HE DOES NOT NEET THE HERNIA TAKEN CARE OF.. HE HAS BEEN TOLD BY STAFF THAT HE IS GETTING A HEARING AID, AND THE HERNIA TAKEN CARE OF.. BUT SHE TELLS ME NONE OF THIS IS SERIOUS ENOUGH TO GET TAKEN CARE OF. LET HIM COME HOME, TO HELP HIS 83 YEAR OLD MOTHER. WE HAVE DOCTORS HERE AND IT WOULD BE LESS EXPENSE TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. WHAT A BROKEN SYSTEM WE HAVE...NO WONDERS OUR GOVERMENT IS OVER TAXED... WE PUT SOME OF OUR BEST CITIZENS IN PRISON FOR SO LONG.. THANK YOU FOR A CHANCE TO EXPRESS MY VIEWS. VELLA DORSEY....
