I don't have a problem with the old and feeble being paroled...such as the
British 1950's organized crime figure who was recently paroled about a
month before his death (cancer I believe). Perhaps *very* occasionally in
the face of overwhelming evidence that the prisioner has turned his life
around and no further good is ocomplished by incarceration.

There may also be other rare circumstances for parole...possibly
participation in dangerous medical experiments? Though the bioethicists
have ruled that one out.
