Thank you Alexa for the informative article. As a society, we are hard on criminals, long after they have served their time. When these guys get out of prison, it's an uphill battle for them to find work and housing. And when they cannot find work or housing, they end up homeless, or worse, they'll commit a crime so that they can go back in prison where a hot meal and a bed awaits.
As a society, we need to help cons get back on their feet by helping them find work. As an incentive, more businesses need to be subsidized for hiring ex-cons as well. Like I said, if they do not have a place to work, they will more than likely commit a crime so that they can go back to prison, which is expensive for all of us and doesn't do any good for anyone.
