Pardon me, Parole?
As a practicing Buddhist for many years, I have been trained to be compassionate, but at times I do have a difficult time in maintaining this attribute towards certain people. I usually do not believe in the death penalty but I do believe in putting certain felons in jail forever. My target group are those who kill, rape, and worse of all, child abusers.
A lot of these criminals get life in prison or even as low as twenty years and then are released for good behavior way too soon. And a good majority (to my knowledge) go back and do it all over again. What is going on in the minds of the parole boards that release these people to haunt the innocent once more?
I think it is time for the victims and families to have some bit of relief for the suffering they will carry with them for life.

I fully agree with you. I am not sure of death, but nothing wrong with living out their years in a small cage!

That happens here in New Zealand as well, and as you suggest, they're often back behind bars within a very short time.
