I don't know how this will go but..

How do you people feel about jail people coming out early for being good?
Like people coming out in 5 years instead of 7 for being good.

I don't think it's right because killers could come out early and then start killing people again.

I dont think its right because they shouldnt have committed the crime and obviously they are going to try to be good to get out earlier but then they could just go and commit another crime

i think it depends on what the crime is. if you stole something or something like that i dont see why not, but if you're a convincted murder that's probably not a good idea...

Uh.. there's this new law called "truth-in-sentencing" and it states that there will be no Early Release anymore. If you are sentenced to 10 years, you will get ten years. They can add more years but you can't get out early anymore.

no they can...and it's not right...i mean if it's "petty" crime then ok fair enough, but if you're a serial killer and you've killed for years and years then you aren't going to change like that...

it doesn't work like that (not in the UK anyway), with prisoners they are given a minimum sentance, so that they have to fulfill that sentance, probably around 30 years, before they can even go before a parole board.
Yeah, i think they should be let out early for good behaviour the prisons are full as it is. But prisons dont really work, a large number of people who leave prison re-offend because as they have no training or qualifications there only choice is to commit crimes.

thats a bad law if you ask me, the chance of shorter sentances is an incentive to behave in prison and maybe even do something with their lives

yea, that's true. like i said before, i can see letting people who stole something or vandalized something or something smaller like that out on good behavior, but not murderer's or rapists.

They made the law for a reason: people getting let out early were getting into trouble again. Now they're just simply not going to let them out early.
