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

Time for a Change! Where do you stand? Have a voice and if you agree, please sign the petition.

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.

This needs to be done at state levels and not just federal.

It is not fair that rapists and murderers get lesser sentences then drug addicts. My husband and I were both sentenced in 2007 for drug trafficking. My husband was sentenced to 3 yrs min, mandatory and I was sentenced to 2 yrs house arres, followed by 6 yrs felony drug offender probation, with a ten yr suspended sentence. Unlike popular belief, we were not saving money, we were supporting our habit. Were we doing wrong? YES!!!! HOWEVER we were not rich, we were drug addicts. My friend is currently serving ten yrs for the same charge and it is not fair. My husband and I have been clean since 2007, but that is only due to outside rehabilitation and counseling that we took upon ourselves, not incarceration. We are also grateful to the government's suboxen program, which has saved our lives. I am on disability , and my husband has a real job. We spend our spare time with our grandchildren and life is great. Please pass this 65% petition. Thank you

Not all people that are arrested & convicted of violent crimes or any crime for that matter are guilty, there are alot of innocent people in jail & prison due to lack of proper investigation by law enforcement & they are excessively punished for crimes that they did not commit.
