Parole and Punishment

June 13, 2002

I agree with Douglas Cavanaugh's June 9 letter that prison is for punishment, not rehabilitation. I also believe that once a jury decides the guilt of a defendant and the judge pronounces sentence, that sentence should stand. Therefore, California does not need a parole board. Let's have an initiative to change the law to eliminate parole for any prisoner. That would be another step to help reduce crime in our state.
