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.

For non violent offenders, punishment doesn't match the crime. The sentences given are as long as robery, rape, molesters, domestic violence crimes. Reducing the time for non offenders with good behavior is a,way to reduce overcrowding, and give these people a chance to be a positive contribution to society.

It's totally absurd that non violent offenders receive more time than violent offenders !!! Repeat CHILD MOLESTERS are serving less time than people with other non violent charges ... reducing the scentencing guidelines to 65% would be a step in the right direction...
