Petition to bring back federal Parole

Messages Sent So Far
Many individuals are serving long prison terms in the Federal Prison system. There inmates who are currently serving these long prison terms miles away for any king of support. The families are burden with the cost of travel to visit these indiviuals.Children have lost many years with their parents due to incarceration. Our prison facilities are flooded with low-level offenders,and non-violent drug offenders.It would save the taxpayers money by bringing back Federal Parole, and reuniting the inmates with their families,while at the same time offering controled release with the responsibility of the inmate paying the cost towards it like with probation. We can also make these individuals work in our community to cover the cost.Thank you for reading this letter,and please support this need for change.

Young people make errors in judgment. There should be no black and white sentencing. When a person shows that they are a part of society, and is doing what they should to better their lives they should be on the outside, not in a cell costing a ton of money. Chris has more than proved that he is a good man with the right intentions for a bright future and should continue to remain on the outside.

Please bring back Federal parole. Do you really think you get the help you need inside? No. When you do a good chunk of your sentence, you should be looked at different, and held to a higher standard so that you can be considered for time reduction. I believe the feds hand out way too much time for selling method and merly possessing a gun after getting a felony at the age of 18 for having a friend's oxy codone. Bring back a chance to live right. Bring back Federal parole!

I truly believe this should be an option. People can be rehabilitated and change for the better. Parole is a chance to recieve the chance to prove the good behavior you exibited inside takes hold and becomes a part of life. Please, bring back federal parole. For family. For the strength of forgivness.

Give people a chance to reform themselves. Prison is not the place to do that, with parole, you have more access to treatment and ways to get help. If you don't follow directions, back in ya go, but at least give people the chance like in state sentences. More and more people are getting federally indicted, and it's a very common thing. Please bring back federal parole for family

Bringing back federal parole would be a great thing. My sister received a 20 year sentence which is a ridiculous. She is a non-violent drug offender who deserves a second chance to reclaim her life at a decent age. I agree she needs to to some time but 20 years is a harsh sentence for someone that has never been in trouble before.
