    My love one has served over 70% of a 30 year sentence for a non-violent crime. Please help pass the Federal Prison Bureau Nonviolent Offender Relief Act of 2017

    It's a good proposal jail time causes homelessness financially for state county and inmate some times leading to more crime

    These harsh sentences for non-violent offenders not only ruin their lives but the lives of their children & families. Why do you give these people more time than the people that are hurting & killing other people? It is unfair, unjust & inhumane to take the lives away from the non-violent offenders and their families. Please think about it! Look at ot logically!

    Let's get the non-violent offenders back to their families. So many children are needlessly missing a parent because of such extensive sentencing.

    I have a son who was sentenced to 15 years in a federal prison for sending one picture of his privates to a 16 year old girl....one picture!! He has an Associate Degree and Bachelor of Science degree, never been in trouble, doesn't do drugs or been in gangs, but gets 15 years! Other people have hundreds of images and videos and get 5-10 years. Where is the fairness. He made a mistake, yes, but deserves a second chance. He learned his lesson while in jail without bond. He was considered a flight risk because of our proximity to Mexico, even though he speaks no Spanish! They used him as a guinea pig and to set an example to others. NOT RIGHT!!!
