How about some radical prison rehab like: providing those already incarcerated with some good counseling and resources to help them rehabilitate? How about some "good time" for those who have already been sentenced under Measure 11 who are trying to rehabilitate themselves? The sentencing guidelines under Measure 11 are insane for those who have not hurt anyone. Under Measure 11, a person who has committed robberies while addicted to meth and who has never hurt anyone can serve a longer sentence that a murderer! There is NO REHABILITATION PRISON so we need to correct that so we do not have re-offenders. Let's give those already in prison a chance to turn their lives around and reward them with some good time. Measure 11 needs to be repealed first so we are not just "warehousing" those who are already serving time. I do agree with this proposal but is only touching the tip of the iceberg!
