Robert,

Thank you for your post. It caused me to look up my own state's code concerning the release of inmates in medical distress. If other readers would like to see their state's view on Medical and Geriatric Parole law, it is easily found at the National Conference of State Legislatures website. Each state is listed there along with the applicable code citation of state law. Each state, with the exceptions of Arizona, Illinois, Iowa, and West Virginia, address this pressing issue. Texas and Alabama are reported as having the highest rates of release based on the statute. It also reports the release rate of Texas was 4.3% of requests in the year 2016. This dismal statistic is depressive and a poor reflection on the humane treatment of medically distressed inmates.

You report the current rate of California is higher than this statistic (after the new 2017 law), so perhaps there is hope that American can practice mercy and forgiveness on those inmates who deserve to die in the arms of family...at least those blessed with family. Anyone who has experienced sickness or the death of a loved one knows the precious power of love. May we each support the humane treatment of those inmates whose sickness, infirmity, or frailty, makes them no threat to society.

dad I'm not sure exactly what to say. that is why I don't write to you. its very hard for me to find a reason to write to you. so I don't write to you.I still would like to know when they are going to let you out. id like to see you get out of that place.
I am 37 with a 5 year old son. his mother and I co parent and we put our son first. he is a very good boy. you are his grandfather and he deserves to know you.he has asked about you several times, I hope you get the chance to meet him.
I lost my mother recently and it breaks my heart very deeply. I feel very alone at times, many family members not many act like family, but when we do, boy is it ever so rewarding. it is the best gift life has to offer, and not one day should be taken for granted. my message to my family is to grow closer so regrets never approach, and help others and also help yourself so you can better help the ones around you. these are my focuses,
I expect you will die in jail, but I cannot be sure. I must visit soon i will bring my son if its possible , . I wish you well and things get easier for you.

You know, I'll never understand why you did what you did to your own family!! I have so much disgust from what you have done I don't think I could ever forgive you... You were around my kids and if I would've known the things you were doing, I would've never let you around them or have let you be a part of my life.. I don't understand how you felt what you did was okay or justifiable.. I feel once people cross that line, they'll never change and become anything but what monster they were.. you said yourself your a danger to children..and I hope your never able to be around any as long as you live.. I've heard youve wanted me to reach out in the past but I refused to talk to you.. I don't think I could ever forgive you enough to get past that day I heard the news of what you did and how you felt it was okay.. I pray God has mercy on your soul.. because he sees all and only he can judge you to the greatest extent..

Thank you for the opportunity to transcribe your blog post. I agree with you that America, as a society, accepts the abusive behavior as a whole and punishes selectively. Thank you for letting me read.
