    your proposed early release scheme
    Show me anywhere where I said 'early release'.

    My point was that criminals should stay in jail until they are no longer a threat to society or until jail is no longer the best way of stopping them being threats to society, whether that means 3 weeks in jail or 30 years in jail.

    Hmm, well, being released before the sentence is due qualifies as early release in my book.
    But the fact is that many criminals are released early already, as they are considered to have been successfully rehabilitated. Yet the recividist rate shows that for some of them, at least, this is not the case. How can we make certain that criminals have actually reformed?
