Default Victims may decide inmates' fate

Victims of crime could be given a say on whether offenders should be freed from jail, under plans being considered by the home secretary.

From the same article:

But the Home Office said the victim of a particular crime would not be sitting on the parole board hearing of that offender.

Now that sounds a bit better. At first glance it appeared the victim of that offence would say whether the inmate got parole or not, never a good idea!!

Could you imagine how overcrowded the whole system would be if the victims had this power? Some people just forgive let alone forget. A lot of people would spend the rest of their lives in prison for something small. I am also glad that the victims would have no say over their own cases. That would be a disaster.
