Some criminals do deserve lengthy sentences. Everyone shouldn’t be rewarded by the reforms, only those that have earned it. the reformists aren’t truly taking all factors into consideration when they make sweeping changes to the penal system. Like those before them in the Eighties and Nineties that instituted Draconian punishments, the human element and the effects that these changes will have on society for decades to come are not being taken into consideration. Prison reforms rehabilitated and reformed.
