Topic: A Broader View / Should jails implement more rehabilitation programs?

I reside in the state of Pennsylvania, I have a brother who is in the 32nd year of a life sentence for second degree arson murder. Four people died in the blaze, he was 18 years of age at the time. Three others were involved with the crime, one recieved the same sentence as my brother. Over the years I have learned the most stable inmates are those who have served long sentences. I advocate in the Commonwealth a review process for inmates who have served 25 years and reached the age of 50. The process must be merit based with education being the top priority.
Overcrowded prisons put the staff at risk, guards as well as inmates are in danger every day. Rehabilitation seems to be a forgotten practice, society has accepted prisons as punishment. Tough on crime starts with educating the individual!
