That's exactly what I was going to say. What the heck, Parole board? All we can hope is he will follow the usual pattern, will get released and within the first 30 days will do some petty crime that he will get caught for and sent back to jail.
And not allowed to leave the state? By all means, let him leave. Not like he is needed/wanted around here.
PS. He is a career criminal. It is not like your stupid parole rules will make any difference to him.
