And now from the "how is this news?" department, the Boston Globe has shockingly discovered that violent offenders, especially those with life sentences, are likely to commit violent crimes when out on parole.
How many innocent people have to be killed or raped before people decide that maybe parole for violent offenders just might be a bad idea?

And your question is irrelevant to my pointing out that your claim was false.
14.9% committed new crimes but we don't know if they were violent crimes or a small possession type offense.
From the article,
<<<<<Thirty of the parolees, or 14.9 percent, were returned to prison after being accused of committing new crimes, including murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, as well as less serious offenses such as assault and drunken driv ing.<<<<<
>>>>>>Overall, the rate of reincarceration for Massachusetts lifers appears relatively high, at least when compared with New York State, which has tracked murderers and other offenders on parole for decades.
Only 19.1 percent of the 1,480 convicted murderers paroled from 1986 to 2006 in New York were returned to prison. In addition, only 2.6 percent were returned for committing new crimes, while 16.6 percent were sent back to prison for committing technical violations of their parole.
The reason for the difference between the states is hard to discern, complicated by the Massachusetts Parole Board’s failure to keep detailed data on recidivism.<<<<<<<
