Question of the Week: March 20, 2005

Hmm...I've decided to change this to question of the week. I don't expect you all to be as in love with this blog as I am, and so to spur more debate...let's make it a weekly instead of daily question. This week's question: Should felons be given the right to vote once they are released from prison and either enter into a parole or probation status? Definitions: Parole - When a convict is allowed to serve the rest of their sentence in our communities (with some stipulations) Probation - A suspended sentence which a convicted felon is allowed to live in our communities (with some stipulations)

Yes!

The dept of corrections is supposed to be in the business of just that: correcting people.

if the dept of corrections is to work, we need to give people the educational and job opportunities to reintegrate into society.

And, that means, if you are not in jail, you are a citizen with the right to vote and participate in a democratic society.
