(A MINIMUM OF 150 WORDS)CLASSMATE’S POSTTo the extent that I can, I will be short. The Second Chance Act of 2007 was passed and signed into law in 2008. This law was signed by President Bush. There are many provisions to the Second Chance Act but what interests federal prisoners most is how it may help them aim to enhance public safety by breaking the cycle of criminal repetition and improving outcomes for people returning from prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities. The main purpose or goal of the Second Chance Act was to reduce repetition, increase public safety, and assist states and communities to address the growing population of inmates returning to communities.One disadvantage is a common frustration amongst federal prisoners is how slowly administrators implemented this new law. Nearly 650,000 individuals who are released from federal and state custody each year only to find limited support to aid in their reentry efforts.One advantage is providing funding on the state and local level to support former prisoners needs for housing, mental health, and substance abuse treatment. As well as education, employment and rebuilding family and community ties. The main purpose allegedly would help the formerly incarcerated successfully transition back into communities.Reference:“Second Chance Act (2007).” Wikipedia, Wikimedia Foundation, 17 Aug. 2020, Chance Act.
