Re: 2012 Senate Bill 1214 (Authorize Attorney General challenge of parole board decisions )  by Beerme on September 14, 2012 
This opens the court's decision-which was made understanding the Parole Board's role-to second-guessing by victim, prosecutor and AG. Two of these players are elected officials who make their "name" on being tough on crime. How are they going to vote in every case? On principle after a reasoned treatment of the facts of the case or on the emotional argument that the convict needs to remain locked away for ever? Never mind the emotionally charged position of the victim. This is ridiculous! The mental lightweights in our state senate never cease to amaze me...

2012 Senate Bill 1214 (Authorize Attorney General challenge of parole board decisions )  by admin on September 14, 2012 
Introduced in the Senate on July 18, 2012, to authorize the state Attorney General (in addition to the crime victim and prosecutor) to challenge a state parole board decision, establish an “abuse of discretion” standard for such challenges, and require the parole board to retain a complete record of its proceedings for offenders convicted of certain very serious crimes

The vote was 38 in favor, 0 opposed and 0 not voting
