It isn’t news that the United States prison systems are corrupt. They either give too much time to an individual or too little. We need to focus on rehabilitating prisoners and help them become an asset to society again. 

Did you know for every prisoner in just Minnesota alone our tax dollars pay $40,000 a year to keep them there. Instead of giving them life sentences or longer sentences we should focus on helping them become a member of society. 

Senate Bill 261 can help. California in 2017 passed this bill through Congress saying that people who commit a crime between the ages of 18-23 should not have to serve long or life sentences. Young men and women who have committed a crime that young should have a chance again in society. We shouldn’t have to keep them locked up, but instead we should help them become who they truly are. We should focus more on treating/helping them and show them the way. People from ages 18-23 have a lot of developing to do. The brain is not fully developed at that age. 

We can start the change now. We need your help and compassion to help these people who never got a chance at life and may never get one if we can’t pass the bill. 

Everyone deserves a second chance at life and we can make that happen.
