06 Dec Should non-violent prisoners be released from jail in order to reduce overcrowding?
“Mass incarnation in the past resulted in a prison boom, and currently, most of the federal prisons are overcrowded. Prisons lack essential amenities and prisoners instead of getting rehabilitated are getting more inclined to commit grave crimes.
Those in favor of early release suggest that when low-level, non-violent offenders are imprisoned rather than released under supervision, become more predisposed to commit new crimes once they get out of prison. They claim taxpayer’s money should be put to better use rather than to operate inefficient prison institutions.
Opponents consider early release as a risky endeavor, which can result in a rise of violent crimes.
