Do you think once someone is in prison for more than ten years, they will ever make a contribution to society, or are they too deep in the system that they can't be reformed?

I think they are too far into the system they will just find some way to get back in. Considering that's all you know for a decade.

IM not sure but i think that some people can change and others cannot so each person is considered seperately!!

I think once they have been in prison for over ten year's that's all they know and they will probably end up back in prision . It is hard for people to get job's these day's and if you have a criminal record most employer's won't even look at them. Most of the people just give up and go back into their criminal life style because they feel they have no other way out. Alot of the prisoner's do not have home's to go to when they get out so they go out and do something else wrong just to be put back in. I seen a program just the other day talking about this subject.

As was mentioned society itself changes far too often for inmates after even one decade,i believe some would never want to return and others must feel society would never give them another chance too

Society changes sooo much after 10 years, so integrating back into the "real" world would be difficult for many prisoners. All they know is the "routine" of prison and probably even get comfortable and secure behind bars. The odd one might come out successful (like the Shawshank Redemption movie)...but I'm sure the unsuccessful ones outweigh the successful ones.

I believe if they did not commit serious crimes and are willing to change for the better and are willing to improve, grow, and learn then I believe so.

It really depends on the person & what they've done. My dad counsels as a volunteer short-term inmates making re-entry back into society & they often don't have much to go home to...a half way house might work better.

Well nobuckinsense, considering that you a) answered your own question, and that b) you could care less about their plight, I think your question and comment are a waste of time. I've never understood why people like you waste time on websites asking questions and then answering those very same questions. It's as though you've already determined they're of no worth anyway; let them rot!
