    Remember the good old days when murders were executed within years instead of decades and the family of the victim could get on with their life. Now they are walking away like murder isn't any big deal.

    Easy decision. Serve the full sentence.
    We read too often about supposedly "reformed and repentent" convicts who get out and commit more crimes. The cannot commit crimes while they are in prison.

    I am glad I am not on the parole board. What a horrible decision for the board to have to make, but I suppose this is true of all the times the parole board has to decide if someone should have another chance. We need to be grateful for those who serve in this capacity.

    It does seem that the inmate may have changed in his years of incarceration. He may be able to make amends to society if released. He was young. It is hard to say. Again, I hope the right action takes place.
