I am reading all of these posts on social media about offenders that are being approved for parole. While I think this is a good thing I can’t help but stop and wonder what is the method to the madness. The BPP has a list of denial reasons and each reason is very broad. When preparing an offender for parole you have to really dig deep and hard on the broad denials and find all of the negative in their pasts to address each reason. Basically you want to really point out the negative and how it applies to them then some how turn that negative into a positive.
I also see many offenders who are repeat offenders being released on RMS. I guess I am not understanding how going to prison 3+ times for the same offense justifies no need for programming. However is programming in TDCJ a really all that beneficial or is it just a means to hold them longer? Considering program needs are recognized upon entry and they have to make parole to see the programs we are going to go with the latter of the two. I am going to bet money there isn’t a single person on the planet that can make this make sense.
