A cutting-edge opinion cited the long-term consequences that convicted felons face after they’ve completed their sentences.

It’s crazy how this country doesn’t support or help you after you’ve been through some trouble. Look at our prisons. Most people who go to prison, end up back in prison sadly. Prisons should be a place of rehabilitation, to help these people get back into society.

Once you’re a convicted felon, even after you’ve finished your sentence dutifully, you still face such hardships that really doesn’t help you get back on your feet. Most people might just resort back to crime after that. What good does that do for our country? Nothing. “Modern civil death” has never been a truer term than now.
