When a person gets outta prison what do they need the most? A Job and a place to live. If they cant find those things then there really is no reason to let them outta prison in the first place as they will just commit more crimes to have some money for food or whatever else they might want or need.
I can see what S.F. is trying to do here and I can see the point of view of those who oppose it. I just cant help but wonder how many people who re-offend do so because of the fact that no one will hire them or rent to them?
Once a person is released from prison they have paid their debt to society, or at least that is how it is supposed to be. however the way it is now they keep getting punished for whatever they did for the rest of their life, they cant get a decent job because they have to tell the employer that they have a criminal record, they cant get a decent place to live for the same reason.They cant protect themselves because to have a weapon is now a crime for them.Where does the punishment for a crime end?
I cant help but think that our policy's towards Felons cause more Harm then Good.
