Giving People Another Chance in Life

The "Three strikes" law is based on the concept that men and women can't change. That once someone has demonstrated their criminal tendencies, and been caught for it, three times, they have proven that they can only be restrained - not reformed.

It is understandable, considering the fact that "rehabilitation" has been given to psychiatry to execute, and the psychiatric profession is the first to admit they can't "cure" anything.

But the fact is that criminals CAN reform. This has been proven time and again by the Criminon program, which uses technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard.

It is a crime indeed to deny the individual the opportunity to live a productive and contributive life in society if he or she can reform and become trustworthy.

And it is a tremendous drain on the rest of society, which not only suffers from the crimes of the antisocial but then has to pay billions of dollars to warehouse them for years on end.
