Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

Messages Sent So Far
it is time for us to all take a stand for prison inmates with life sentences. we always talk about how the prison system is there to rehabilitate criminals. the department of corrections along with the parole board has decided that in order to be eligible for parole you have to complete certain requirements. the first requirement that the actual time that the prisoner received has been completed. during this time, the prisoner have to also be a model inmate. The inmate must also show remorse for his crimes. the inmate should also take self help classes for any substance abuse issues. The inmate also should take advantage of any educational courses offered to learn marketable job skills.

the question should now be asked, what else can they do to make themselves eligible for parole? after completing all the requirements said above, the inmate should be allowed to get a parole date. this is not taking place. something needs to be done. Lifers are not getting a second chance like they should.

I agree lifers deserve a second chance. They made a mistake and funny thing is the enhancements are what give more time. Its better to just do the time. My dear friend is has completed his time that was 9 years for his base term and for having a gun it gave him 25-life with this whole prop 57 he will be able to get credits but my question is how are they applied? He made a mistake and is now paying life? That's not rehab that is just putting someone in hole and throwing the key away. Might I add with no hope for release why would you expect them to behave?

Let it be known that i do not accept bad behavior, or do i reward it, but clearly our jails are over crowded at not all inmates receive the adaquate attention need to be rehabiliitated for example i am writing the comment on behalf of my daughters father, he wrote me for the fist time in years asking me to look into his case. Now being the snoop that i am i myself have some questions about his case. He was convicted in 2006 on drug related charges and was given a life sentence, my first thought was do the crime do the time, then i was told by others that he should have not asked for a jury trial if he was guilty, well after getting his letter and listening to his concerns, i had to question myself, there must be some doubt to his charges if he wanted a jury of his peers to hear his case, when he should have just pleaded guilty and not risk a jury giving him a life sentence, my stance on this we are all human and made of flesh yes we will sin but for the love of god, don't throw the baby out with the bath water, we live in the United States Of American, if this man can right me a letter from prison asking me to take a look at his case, my question is why no one else has, not only for Mr. Timothy Woulard, but for all the other inmates that are serving a life sentence, what have we accomplished if we keep this up, Nothing, and to whom ever read my rant. Please lead me in the right direction, I just want closure so i can give him closure, I have nothing to gain but the truth.

17 years of age he was given 2nd degree murder and life. The adult you committed the crime, was given Murder and he is out now . 10 yrs. I find it very hard to believe that the 17 ur old can't be given another chance.

Hello I am writing in regards to Mustafa Savior 1142271,my brother was up for parole after serving the minimum 14 years that the judge told him he had to serve on a life sentence, yet he has not made parole. I believe my brother has atoned for his crime and should be allowed his parole date so he can rejoin society as a law abiding citizen.
