Recidivism: Are Parolees really given a Fair Chance or Does Society close its Doors for Success?


It is safe to say Recidivism rates are increasing each year in some states- particularly those in the South, than in other states. Almost always, when an employer sees a potential candidate does not have a clean background, the opportunity to land a job is automatically lost. Society tends to close its doors to possible success from those who want to turn their lives around to make things right, by earning a living- the honest way. So, many are sent back to prison because "The Outside" doesn't give them the chance to survive. Do you agree Society plays a part in Recidivism? Is this right?

    As an employer, I wouldn't have wanted a government committee deciding who I could hire or what facts I could consider when choosing an employee. The results of that would be disastrous.

    my response wont fit. I understand what you mean and I believe you misconstrued me. The committee would simply give an opinion. Nothing more.
