    I wasn't sure whether to put this in this section or the Soap Box forum....

    But what do you make of this?

    Personally - I think convicted criminals should serve full jail time, not be released early. As for the opportunity to work straight after release - that's a bit of a grey area. Putting convicted criminals on benefits and draining at the resources doesn't sound like it should happen when they should be forced to review their human rights. This is my view given that they infringe on the rights of others.
