Then why is that 'convicted felon' back on the streets?

If a person committed a felonious crime and have served their time, then they have paid for their crime. If the commit another crime they will go back to the pen, just like you would. They have paid for what they did, but you want to make them suffer for the rest of their lives, and they may have been a stupid teenager when they committed the first crime. I thought people were sent to the pen for "re-rehabilitation". If it ain't working then they shouldn't have been released. If they were released they are again a citizen and not a criminal.
