How can you expect for Parole to be given to these youth that committed serious crimes to be Paroled one day.
When the Florida Parole Commission does not release those they have in Florida Prison in the age range of over 50 yrs. and serving over 25 yrs. in prison are now elderly prisoners costing millions of dollars in Healthcare due to elderly medical conditions.
Not to mention the fact that 250 million is the cost to Florida Tax Payers to keep in prison over 12,000 men and women that are back on technical violations no new crime committed. Some have been sentence by the FPC to 50 yrs in prison at the cost of tax payers.
It's time Florida Tax Payers get involved in Abolshing this unsupervised agency that makes ridiculous decisions to sentence someone for not passing a drug test to 50 yrs. in prison and pass the cost to the Florida Tax payers when Florida is in a Financial State of Depression.
