I don't know what to say about violent crime.. perhaps depends on type, but if they have been in a long time it won't matter because they aren't going to be happy on the outside and will likely return. I sincerely think that marijuana offenders need to be released immediately. Every Fricken one of them. I am embarrassed by our government for locking people up still for those offenses when we have even 1 state that it's legal. Discrimination at its most despicable core there. That is a prime example of a great majority of the laws we have. Shows how blind and/or lazy Americans have become to not stand up for what's right. Maybe Americans have just become to self absorbed like my ex wife. One agenda and it isn't the future of our country.0

In my opinion I don't think it is only about second chance, but the degree of Justice that is deserved to those that he and she hurt.
For example, for somebody that committed murder could never undo what they did. There is nothing in the world they can do to make it better. The person lost their life and was forced to be unable to live continuously, AND have their lost moments truly be terrifying and painful, which that alone, is unfair. Other things connected to that are the people left behind that have to grieve, or who undergo mental and emotional stress, anxiety, depression, no closure, and severe anger toward what happened. It's the same with a rapist; a victim's body and mind will always be scared, and if we have any sensible justice on the planet, that rapist should do FULL time, no ifs, and's, or good conduct to reduce that time. It's a slap in the face to the victim.
I'm not saying not saying prisoners can't change, becuase as humans we do some stupid stuff we'll regret sooner or later, but if they change, that doesn't change what they did; the damage was done and they have to live with that.
