“There are many times where I feel advocates for reform are asking for too much, such as removal of probation/parole restrictions that are legitimate forms of punishment”
The way I see it is; if they want to punish us for 10 years then they may as well just make us do the full 10 year prison term. What’s the point of being out in the free world with restrictions and using the excuse that we’re still being punished?
Probation is a waste of money. Our tax dollars pay some baffoon who couldn’t pass the postal exam with a cheat sheet and their justification as to why we can’t live a normal life is to use the “you’re still being punished” nonsense.
