    grant clemency or commute sentences? Or should we keep everyone locked up for 107 years because they "might" committ a crime and then the left will have a political hammer! Which? Age doesn't matter! :lol:

    most people deserve a second or third chance. but when you violate parole and commit new felonies that pretty much proves you can't be trusted to make reasonable choices. lock the bastards away!

    all is true, but doesn't answer the original question.

    Don't do the crime if you can't do the time... If the judge says "20 years" it should be 20 years day for day and nothing less.

    that certainly would take a lot of pressure off the govenors. Judge and Jury should rule. Ban parole boards.

    Yes we should definitely as a society have provisions for clemency. Shit happens, it's nice to be able to fix it sometimes.

    Gulags, even for shoplifting. Lease land in northern Canada (give Yukon work). Decrease the surplus population.

















    I almost forgot....
    Bah, humbug!

    Some cannot be cured. Child molestors for instance. Either keep em locked up or kill em.
