I do not know the exact figures for NC, but I do for FL,
When talkingg about MURDER ONLY.As o 3 Dec 2011, these are the figure that the FL DOC has:

62 MURDERERS are listed as "absconders."

2 MURDERERS are listed as "escapees."

1,622 MURDERERS are listed as having been released under sutpervison.

8,382 MURDERERS ate listed as paroled.


13,526 MURDERERS are listed as inmates.

What does all of this mean? All it really means is that there a a lot of murderes out amng us,

I wonder how many would be paroled if parole board members would get the same punishment as the con, if the con commits another crime? Same for the shrinks.

I have often wondered what would happen if defense lawyers were held to the same level of truth on their part as the prosecution.

Everyone gets all upset when the prosecution does something wrong, but how many get upset when the defens lies and distorts the truth and situations?

One of my favorite examples of this is when an appeal was filed based on the claim that an inmate did not speak English and did not understand his rights, etc. Only proble was that I had known him for over 20 years and we usually spoke in a language I have thought was American English.

I think the prosecution and defense lawyers should be sworn in and face prision time themselves if they veer from the course of finding out what the truth is. This is what the court system should be about. And a 1 year sentence should equal 1 year, not all this less time the cons can earn. They earned their sentence, let them serve it.
