If a prisoner has been non-violent for 6 months, it should be mandatory to release them from jail and have them on a 2 month house arrest. After the house arrest is over, have them sign a contract to last 2 years. Any major crime committed, will be a 1 year prison sentence.
Yes, they should be released from jail, but not only to reduce overcrowding. They should be released because they committed not violent offensive and aren't dangerous and because they are people who shouldn't just be treated like cattle while in prison.
I agree that yes non-violent crimes should be allowed to be released for overcrowding. However, they should have more parole and a stricter parole sentence than if they were just getting out on parole after serving their time.
Yes, but we should be able to evaluate them for mental or psychological issues and help them with that with facilities that are designed for this purpose or at home if they have somewhere stable and supportive to return to.
