This is not likely to end well, some things are worth paying for. For an example of what can happen just Google "the broomstick killer," his name was Ken McDuff. How many people (especially women) should die this way? In McDuff's case it was 14 or more.

Great approach. All crime (at least most) is grounded in substance abuse and or mental illness. To provide this to all parolees will have a major impact on the reduction of crime. Need to go another step forward and increase drug/mental health courts and assign these criminals to treatment processes under supervision of the judge. Fix their mental health/drug addiction problems and you will fix their criminal behavior. Nothing else works.
