End mass incarceration, consider giving opportunities to the elderly
I agree with the law that we are responsible for our actions; however, being removed from society for more than 20 years is unreasonable. Anything after 15 years of incarceration is unjust and is basically warehousing human lives. I know that I am not the same person I was 20 years ago. And you yourself have also changed from the young inexperienced person who could not make a cognizant decision to a person who is in a position to make decisions that could positively change a person’s life. We need to support the movement to end mass incarceration. I believe helping the elderly with long term sentences is a good start.
