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.

My brother never even had so much as a speeding ticket. Yet was give 10 years on this first offense. He isn't physically able to do any harm to anyone and most definitely deserves a second chance before those doctors and nurses at FMC Lexington let him die! Please give him a 2nd chance . It maybe is only chance to survive.

Everyone deserves a fair chance, especially those who are incarcerated and are remorseful. Give them a chance to be with their families sooner.

Parole needs to be brought back, especially for nonviolent crimes give them a second chance

Parole needs to be brought back, especially for nonviolent crimes. It is costing an average of $38000 per year per inmate for convictions such as marijuana charges. This is costing us billions. Giving them a second chance with a monitoring system and paying a percentage of their paychecks back to govt for a period of time would be a win win.

Parole and a good program to help these offenders who are non violent is the answer, not making more debt and no treatment.

Allowing for parole for federal prisoners allows the system to make adjustments for over zeoulous prosecuting attorneys and judges who make sentencing decisions based on political pressure rather than on the merits of the individual and the situation.
