Who is the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition?

Our mission is to reverse the trend of mass incarceration in Colorado. We are a coalition of nearly 7,000 individual members and over 100 faith and community organizations who have united to stop perpetual prison expansion in Colorado through policy and sentence reform.

Our chief areas of interest include drug policy reform, women in prison, racial injustice, the impact of incarceration on children and families, the problems associated with re-entry and stopping the practice of using private prisons in our state.

It's people like this, people with the capacity to forgive, that will be sitting on God's counsel.

I agree. They realize that all the punishment in the world won't bring their son back. I applaud them for realizing this kid made a terrible mistake and I hope that he can get on with his life. He has to live with what he did forever, that in itself is enough punishment. Thank you for forgiving him.

Living in the Larimer County halfway house and being on supervision for 4 years is not exactly getting off scott free. The halfway house is a difficult place to live and flourish. He is indeed being punished and can be violated for the smallest of actions (at which time he would be returned to prison, most likely).
