Abolish Parole for Prisoners

Comment 9th July 2010

At present a convicted prisoner serves the sentance handed down by the Judge, but is eligible for parole at a predetermined time and can let let out early 'on good behaviour'. Thereby instilling a mentality in the criminals mind that if they keep out of trouble for a short spell and make the right noises they can be back out on the streets in no time.

I propose to abolish the right of parole and rather than letting prisoners out early if they behave themselves, they should serve their full term but if they don't behave themselves they could be required to serve longer inside.

This will make the victims of crime feel as if justice has been done and provide a sound basis for the rehabilition of offenders.

Why does this matter?

There is a growing sense by the general public that criminals see prison as a right of passsge and by playing the system they can get out of serving their full term.

Abolishing parole would help improve the public's faith in the judiciary and instill a sense of justice being done
