    Please change the law give everyone a chance!! Serving only 65% of their time is more than enough rehabilitation time. the rest of the time is wasted tax money. Build new playgrounds, schools, shelters and organizations and programs to help when the ex cons re enter society. Help not hurt

    Many of the inmates that are in these federal prisons are carrying out sentences for "white collar" crimes. Those people are non violent and some of them are in there for time way longer than violent offenders. Cutting down the time would save the government much money. Many of these people would be better off at home with an ankle bracelet saving tax payer dollars, and having their own families taking care of them.

    Change the law for non violent offenders to serve 65% of their time. People are setting in prisons doing life sentences when they did not murder anyone. These people have done there time they are rehabilitated and should. be given a 2nd chance in. society.

    End this form of slavery. It's a waste of tax payers money and would open up jobs for citizens out here, that's unemployed. If it's not the death penalty; this much time to serve in prison doesn't really add up or make any sense.

    This will allow non violent offenders a chance to get out and become self efficient, instead of the tax payers supporting them.. Or their families being financially drained..

    This is necessary to cut back on over population and the cost per inmate. Not everyone in prison did an unspeakable crime. Some sit behind bars for petty crimes like suspended drivers license. Change the law to 65%

    When people are treated like caged animals more than human beings for non-violent crimes a lot of time by the time they get out of prison, they turn more to acting like caged animals than human beings. People, whether men or women deserve better from the justice system that they are now thrown into. Please pass this to allow families to rebuild their lives. The world we live in today takes all the support from all members of a family to deal with life's issues. People who have committed NON-VIOLENT crimes deserve a second chance. PASS THIS FOR ALL FAMILIES

    Please pass this. My son was given 27 months for a non violent crime. He has never been in trouble. Was on pretrial probation for 20 months before being sentenced. He has no issues on probation. There was no evidence against him other than another person who was charged saying my son was involved. He truly doesn't deserve this sentence. A reduction would get him back home sooner where he belongs. THANK YOU!

    Please Pass This because I understand so people have done crimes but their are alot of people that their nonviolent crime they shouldn't have to do 85 percent of their time. I feel like 65 percent is enough because people deserve a second chance and we the people need your help to make this happen..

    please pass asap- my son is serving 5 years for a nonviolent crime. He has never been in trouble a day in his life. Well respected and 2 months from getting his college degree. Although he deserves to b punished, he doesn't deserve 5 years for being immature and naive.
