Yeah. What's the point of releasing them if chances are they're gonna be coming straight back.

They should give them enough of a footup to have a decent chance of integration with society.

Yes, since a lot of them are too poor to afford it.

Dont know about making it free as that would be a massive drain on the regions taxes, but making part of the rehabilition should be a must.

I think it would be a waste of money, I don't really believe in therapy type peoples.

Yes. It probably could make it easier for an ex inmate to find a job if they ee that he or she is getting treated.
