While We Were Focused on the Election, Obama Quietly Did THIS

Imagine a world where people can go about their lives and focus on something without the government using the opportunity to sneak around behind our backs. Too bad our corrupt government would never let that happen.

I can’t wait until this sleazy scumbag is out of office.

When I turned on MSNBC this morning I heard one of those short, snappy headline blurbs which seems to be consuming the media at the moment. A record has been set, but it has nothing to do with the Olympics. Barack Obama issued 214 sentence commutations in a single day for “mostly non-violent offenders.” Or, as CNN described it, “for drug offenders.” It’s red letter day for criminal justice reform because that’s the most commutations issued in a single day since at least 1900.

That’s some great news, isn’t it? It’s true that the war on drugs has produced some uneven results, with offenders receiving wildly different jail terms in some cases. Clearly there is progress to be made on that front. The rest of the media coverage was largely celebratory in a similar fashion. (NOLA)

President Barack Obama granted clemency to a record 214 inmates on Wednesday, far surpassing his previous single-day record, as part of an ongoing effort to release federal inmates serving prison terms deemed to be unduly harsh.

To date, Obama has commuted the sentences of 562 federal inmates, more than the previous nine presidents combined. The White House said in a statement that the president will continue commuting the sentences of inmates through his remaining months in office.

In the midst of all the celebrations, however, you might notice something startling when you look over the full list of convicts who will be receiving early walking papers. As our colleagues at Twitchy were quick to point out, nearly one quarter of the prisoners weren’t just in the slammer for unduly harsh sentences on drug offenses. And the administration seems to be stretching the definition of “non-violent” to the breaking point.

Take a moment to dry your eyes and note that almost all of the prisoners whose sentences were commuted were jailed for nonviolent drug crimes. Of course, a handful were found guilty of using or carrying a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, possession of stolen firearm, or being a felon in possession of a firearm.

What’s a handful? A quick review of the list of Wednesday’s commutations shows more than 50 prisoners convicted of firearms violations. But isn’t that society’s fault for flooding communities with so many guns that it’s easier for a teenager to buy (or steal) a Glock than to get his hands on a book or a computer?

This man makes me absolutely SICK! Why is he putting dangerous criminals back on the street before they can prove that they are reformed and will not go back to doing exactly what they were doing? And maybe even worse.
