Remember, though, that life doesn't mean they will spend the rest of their days in prison. Here it's a 15 years stretch. There are very few inmates who are sentenced to life without parole. I'm not saying this new amandment that's being talked about it right, just that life doesn't mean never seeing the outside world again.

Default Newbie. Hi i am new. Now we finally meet.

Lifers losing parole rights:


In one sense I think too right that life should mean life to certain criminals. However there are lifers who sincerely regret what they had done and usually it was their first offence. But having said that the Two catch rule. Get convicted of the same offence, then you automatically get Lifed off.

It is those who have genuine regret and remorse and who have looked at their offending behaviour and who have done various courses in prison and kept nose clean whilst inside. Parole should be given to them. Everyone sincerely sorry deserves another chance at life. There are some that deserve to die but.

Death is never an option.
