Don't like my opinion ? Then blame it on the idiot liberal judges & glory hungry lawyers who release folks that shouldn't be released.....sorta questions my ability to believe in "debt to society is paid" due to the early release.
The only reason the majority says no here is yall are afraid they would all vote blue.
As far as Im concerned, as long as its not a violent crime and they have paid their dues and served their time, they should be allowed to vote.
Have a friend, in FL in fact that made a bad mistake years ago and got drunk and got behind the wheel. She hit and killed someone and served 18 years in FL state pen for it. She got out, got back on her feet, got married, bought a house, owns her on trucking busines and is a Conservative contributor to society. Youre trying to tell me she should NEVER be allowed to vote again? Sorry. I dont agree.
My first thought is no way they should ever vote again. I would consider a process for allowing them to earn that right back. They would be ineligible to vote until the term they were sentenced to ran it's course even if they receive an early release. If they were ever convicted of a second felony, they are done voting.
There are some crimes that are so bad they should carry that penalty regardless of how much and how well you turn your life around afterwards. The fact the perp is allowed to live more than compensates for the loss of their civil rights.
