Yes but the specific treatment they get both inside and outside of prison should be based on the severity of their crime and their threat to society

 @9MMMSJ5answered…1wk1W

Depending on the severity of the crime they were convicted with they should be released and do community services

 @9HM7ZJWanswered…6mos6MO

They should not be released from jail. Government should build more prison and should build the programmes to make them work in the prison with providing them with pay until they serve their sentence .

 @9H76M6Ganswered…6mos6MO

If by non-violent that includes no emotional abuse, etc. too, then perhaps be released but monitored a little

 @9GQDWJ3answered…7mos7MO

Yes, but they must have regular check-ins with a parole officer, and a evaluation once every three months

 @9C39MR5answered…1yr1Y

I support major reforms to the prison system in Ireland which would solve these issues
