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.

the guilty lie and make a deal for themselves while their 'scapegoat' pays the price. the government makes deals with the guilty, and pay their witnesses with 'get out of jail free' cards. the power of the Federal government is criminal. I also have transcript of 2 FBI telling their witness to lie under oath. the whole system is so corrupt. this is in Tulsa, OK. instead to prosecuting the dirty FBI, they were transferred out of state. never trust that the government is 'looking for the truth', they have their own agendas. to ruin so many lives, they do not care. the incarcerated that are first time offenders, nonviolent need to out. also the elderly. the problem is ... no one cares. if you look, you will see some posts are dated 2013. very sad.

I believe this law should be changed for non-violent offenders & also, have in place a system where resources are available for these offenders to make changes in their lives for the better. Big business for the prisons in this country is morally wrong as well as entrapment by the police to put people in prison is just as corrupt! Thoroughly discussed by this present justice system!

I agree on this law MY Fiancee is a first time non-violent offender and because they gave him an aggravated sentence he is going to miss the birth of his first child. many of these people are not harmful at all. I believe they deserve to be out sooner to there loved ones.
