LIFE FOR $1500 PLUS 20 YEARS FOR A PLASTIC KNIFE

In 2001 Travis Osborne and his co-defendant approached a man and robbed him. His weapon was a plastic knife from a restaurant. They stole $1500.... Travis was sentenced to life for the robbery and 20 years for the plastic knife. 1st of all, I dont believe in LIFE sentencing if a life wasnt taken . I'd even except a LIFE sentence if their crime left the victim paralyzed or brain damaged. 20 years ENHANCEMENT for a plastic knife???

Since his incarceration Travis has learned how to read and write. He has also been labeled a model citizen of the prison that houses him. In January Travis was up for parole. The parole board denied him his freedom. They said due to the heinous nature of his crime, he is not ready to be released back into society. He was wrong for robbing the nan. I think we'll all agree on that.... What's heinous about a plastic knife? His family called F.A.I.R for help. The parole board has informed us that they will be giving him another chance in 2023. We have 3 years to get him ready. #freeTravisOsborne
