Topic: Letter of The Law / Should parole be abolished or can it reduce our relience on prisons?

I have an assignment for my Contemporary Issues class that deals with the topic question. Right now I am for parole, but for non-violent offenders becuase 72.1% of inmates in federal prison are non-violent offenders (The Sentencing Project).

The other problem though is that among non-violent releasees, about 1 in 5 were re-arrested for a violent crime within 3 years of discharge (Bureau of Justice Statistics Fact Sheet 2004).

So what do you all think, place people in jail so they serve their full time or put them on parole so there will be more room in prisons?
