  1. I hope u have learnt your lessons? Be a good citizen and try to makeup for the lost years. All the very best

  2. I hope they do not go back to their old ways. Prisons are best when they are correctional facilities, so that when an inmate is out, he sees life with a superior understanding.

  3. Good for them, i wonder if there is any rehabilitation program in place for these people, the probability of re offending is high if no help is provided for them, having lost touch with friends and family over years. it is one thing to encourage positive behavior but if there is no help i wonder how they can manage in a society like ours.

  4. We should not release the criminals especially those that were charged with capital offense just to reduce the prison population, this is very dangerous to our society especially when there is no plan for them on how to integrate back into society but those that were charged for minor offenses can have some relieve because they have learn their lesson while being incarcerated. The best decision by the judge is to let go those with minor offenses and make those with capital offense go through a rigorous system that will make them become a better citizen even when they are release.

  5. Most of them cannot tank God for this miracle and put up a good behaviour. Some of them will come out to do worst of what landed them there.

    Happy are those ones who have repented.

  6. Please as you are coming out of prison, embrace the word of God, make Jesus Christ you Lord and personal savior. Don’t go back to your old ways of life, no matter what.

    I wish you gays well

  7. 99% of them will soon go back to the prison because the government has not provided jobs, houses, or money for them how do you want them to cope ?

  8. If the provision of jobs,houses or money is the justification to going back to crime,then we will all be criminals! God gives second chances and he has just given them one .if they like they should claim to b broke,jobless etc as a reason to do evil again…they will only see themselves locked up again or killed.You guys should be at ease with yourselves and take life a day @d time. Jesus will surely be there to help.best wishes
