America behind bars: The time is ripe for prison reform
For hard-to-defend reasons, and at staggering fiscal cost, the United States incarcerates people at a rate five times Great Britain's, nine times Germany's, 12 times Japan's, writes columnist Neal Peirce. It's time to reform this nation's prison system.
The rest of the world is starting to notice the United States' incarceration follies.
Case in point: "Why America locks up so many people," the recent cover story of the Economist magazine, showing the face of a forlorn Statue of Liberty behind bars........

All inmates with Life Sentence- The Forgotten Men !!!

And national Official or ministers that will aid in this matter

To House Sub Committee on Crime,Terrorism and Homeland security, a petition From Eligible Louisiana Citizens In Support of the Implementation of R.S 15:550 and R.S 15:833 (b) (1)

In GENERAL
R.S 15.550, Approving of inmates convicted of a crime of violence as defined in 14 (2) and sentenced to a life-term to participate in Location Tracking and Electronic Monitoring Program.
And
Sub part (b) (1) of 15:833, authorizes the Secretary to grant Furlough es to deserving inmates of any adult correctional institution.

Both allows REFORMED inmates convicted of violent crimes as defined in 14 (2) to participate in these programs.

This would be greatly alleviate the State of its multi-million-dollar (burden) of caring for any offender who has shown to be no lonfer a threat to OUR Community.

The state of Louisiana now suffers from a $ 894 million dollar deficit and thus much of the tax payers monies are being spent on prisons and or housing :REFORMED AND/OR REHABILITATED INMATES.

Rather than affording quality EDUCATIONS to our children !

Please give consideration to this resolution.

The fundamental purpose of this correspondence is to Empower “Louisiana Senate House” and Louisiana House of representatives with new and practical ideas for the upcoming Legislative session, so that we can CHANGE the“WORSE PRISON SYSTEM !!! in the Nation into a Penal Reform System that actually allows room for HUMAN GROWTH, TRUE_REFORMATION and REAL-REHABILITATION, to evolve in the lives of CHANGED men and women to take place.

AFTER THIS ALL, IS THIS NOT THE GOAL OF CORRECTIONS  ???

TOHETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN CHANGING LOUISIANA  !!!

Sincerely:

All inmates who's serving a life terms !!!!!!!!

Thank you all for signing our petition

Letter to
Department of public safety and corrections Susan sharp
Representative Patricia Smith
NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, Inc. Greg Worley

President of the United States
I am writing this letter to you on behalf of many concerned citizens in regards to the mandates of two current Laws that are established in our Louisiana Statutory Law handbook, which if utilized properly, could assist the Louisiana Legislators with its recovery from the $ 341 million shortfall.
We most find a resolve to the error of long-term incarceration of REFORM AND/OR REHABILITATED INMATES.
The State of Louisiana now suffers from a $ 894 million dollar deficit and thus much of the tax payers monies are being spent on prisons and or housing REFORMED OR REHABILITATED inmates.
Rather then affording quality EDUCATIONS to our children.
Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate in the Nation per-capita and it cost approximately $ 23,000 a year plus medical expenses to house prisoners serving life-terms.

As a tax-paying citizen of this state, i strongly support the implementation of R.S 15:550
Relative to : Electronic monitoring of offenders.and also
R.S 15:833 (b) (1) Relative to the Furlough Program.
Both allows Reformed inmates convicted of violent crimes as defined in 14 (2) to participate in these programs.
This would greatly alleviate the State of its multi-million-dollar burden of caring for any offender who has shown to be no longer a threat to OUR Community
Please give consideration to this resolution.

Sincerely :
The long lifer-terms prisoners
Thank you for your precious time to read our letter
God Bless You

Ps:
The State of Louisiana can grant these inmates “20,30 or 40 years to Lifetime Paroles” and then “Electronically monitor them on a location tracking GPS system (for the rest of their lives) at a maximum cost of only $ 1.620.60 per year, that’s a price tag of only five (5) million dollars per year, per every (2500) inmates, as opposed to the $ 57.500.000.00 this State generally spends each year to keep housing “Reform and Rehabilitated “prisoners serving life-term(s)
Our GOAL is to assist State Government with effortsto:

1)reduce the $800.000.000.00 State Deficit:
2) to balance the Annual Spending budget .
3) Reduce the Recidivisms Rate all at the same time.

The inmates at Angola are in support of creating a “ONE-TIME” Exit Fee of $ 1.000.00 per each participant in the “PILOT PROGRAM and they have made a stipulation, that they are committed to maintaining employment, so that they can pay the required additional $ 64.00 monthly parole Fee(s)
Applying these precepts as a resolution to fixing our ECONOMY, will generate $2.500.000.00 in surplus funding, not including the additional @ 1.920.000.00 the State receives in parole fees each year.
This revenue will not only defray any cost to the State, to begin its PILOT PROGRAM for inmates serving life-terms, but it will also allow this State to allocate ate least $ 57.000.000.00 plus of the Tax-payer’s dollars into other state agencies( i.e Schools, Medicaid and Job security )

THIS CAN WORK, IT HAS TO WORK…!!!!!

The fate of our economy is at stake !!!!
We think that is a really great alternative to slashing MILLIONS of DOLLARS from our Annual Spending Budgets at LSU and DHH.
The fundamental purpose of this correspondence is to Empower “Louisiana Senate House” and Louisiana House of representatives with new and practical ideas for the upcoming Legislative session, so that we can CHANGE the “WORSE PRISON SYSTEM in the Nation into a Penal Reform System that actually allows room for HUMAN GROWTH, TRUE_REFORMATION and REAL-REHABILITATION, to evolve in the lives of CHANGED men and women to take place.

AFTER THIS ALL, IS THIS NOT THE GOAL OF CORRECTIONS ???

The grim statistics noted: Some 2.3 million people, more than the population of 15 of our states, are now incarcerated — one in 100 adults.
