Bring good time back to prisoners in Michigan, who didn't kill, rape or molest anyone

Bring back good time for those in prison, whom committed crimes that did not cause death, injury, rape or molestation to anyone.

Why is this important?

We are paying more to incarcerate a prisoner than we pay to educate a child. They are now going into elementary schools counting heads for the prison system. Tell congress we can’t afford our children not to be educated. Put money in our schools and not in the hands of private investors for prisons. Our prisons are overcrowded and the state is saying they can’t afford to feed them. In prison and they are now giving the inmates bag food. This along with the mental and physical abuse by the guards only make more harden crimminals.

Reasons for signing

  • My husband has been incarcerated for four years with an 8 to 20 year sentence on a drug charge. That’s more than enough time for someone to figure out they’ve done something wrong and decide to change
  • My son deserves to be home, non violent offenders shouldn't be sentenced to 25 years with no evidence of a crime.
  • My older brother has been in prison for 12 years with no evidence against him just a judge who didn't care to look at anything presented. He deserves to be free and with his family instead of sitting in prison for 8 more years.
