Suzio Blasts Early Release Program

CALL FOR LEGISLATIVE ACTION TO END THE PREMATURE RELEASE OF VIOLENT CRIMINALS

A Message from Len Suzio:


Many of you have encouraged me to stay active in my public advocacy for Connecticut families and taxpayers. One of the things I intend to do is to keep you informed about important develops at the State Capitol.
As you may recall, last year I fought to suspend and reform the "Early Release" program that allows violent criminal out of jail early. I intend to lead a public campaign to revoke this fatally flawed law that already has cost 2 innocent residents their lives when they were murdered by criminals let loose before serving their full time.
Last year we won the fight to cap and cut the hidden gas tax. We were successful because so many of you signed petitions and contacted the governor's office. It is now time to start a petition drive to end Early Release.
Please read the press release below and click to sign the petition on EndEarlyRelease.com

Suzio Blasts Early Release Program

Will Lead Statewide Effort to Expose Dangerous Law

Calls on Legislature to Eliminate Failed Program

Contact: Len Suzio (203)-530-1544
Former State Senator Len Suzio, Connecticut's leading critic of the Early Release program, called for legislative action to end the premature release of violent criminals from jail before completion of their sentence. "We know of murders and rapes that have been committed by hardened criminals released under the Early Release Program. The arrest of Veron Lloyd in Hartford who has been charged with assault of a pregnant woman is the latest example of how this flawed law endangers the public by freeing unreformed and hardened criminals. If the Legislature were truly concerned with public safety it would eliminate this flawed and dangerous program", said Suzio.
"Murder, rape, robberies, assaults and other violent crimes are being committed by unreformed criminals let loose under the Early Release Law. The Legislature should waste no time eliminating the loophole that releases criminal thugs to terrorize our neighborhoods. I call upon the Legislature to swiftly act on Senator Markley's proposed legislation to eliminate the flawed Early Release Program. Every week that goes by more and more crimes are being committed by graduates of this fatally flawed program," Suzio continued.
Len Suzio is the newest member of the Victim Advocate Advisory Committee. "I will use my position on the Victim Advocate Advisory Committee to challenge those who continue to make excuses for this tragically failed public policy," concluded Suzio.

The legislators are worried about guns and yet they are releasing criminals early back in to society. Some of them are killing, injuring, robbery and other crimes. That should be dealt with no rather than later when someone else is hurt or killed.
