Join with ForgottenMajority.com in petitioning Governor Rick Scott to take action to reinstate Florida’s Parole System. Florida has the third largest prison system in the country and any offender who committed a crime after October 1, 1983 is ineligible for parole. This accounts for a prison population in Florida that is bulging at the seams, exceeding 100,000 inmates and costing tax payers $2.3 billion annually. There are several dynamics at work here starting with the adoption of mandatory minimum sentencing which may force a judge to impose an extreme sentence that is not commensurate with the crime or the circumstances. Instead, providing rehabilitation to paroled offenders would reduce the financial headlock Corrections holds around the necks of all Floridians. For offenders and their families, no hope of parole means no hope at all. Help us to help those who have served time and have shown themselves worthy of that second chance. Our goal is 50,000 signatures to be delivered to Governor Rick Scott.
