Life-time supervision and lifetime probation are becoming overused by Courts in the U.S.
We are here to help everyone join forces and figure out what can be done about a lifetime of burdensome restraints.
Visit our forum and add your thoughts and observations so we can let the public and the Legislatures know what type of destructive activity our own government is involved in.
Keep your head up. Don’t be so negative. Negativity brings more negativity. Lets find answers. Show probable cause for POs to release someone early and cause to justify ones life has become better by the time you spent on probation and let them know you are “fine” without having to be monitored anymore. Just be realistic about it – not negative. They have to listen to reason when you present it in a very logical manner.
