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........

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