Anarchotyranny: 6,000 Drug Convicts Freed as Fisherman Goes to Prison for Catching Too Many Fish

Some people find the term anarchotyranny confusing, because it appears to be an oxymoron. The Obama Regime makes it easier to understand by providing illustration:

Last week the administration started releasing the first wave of 6,000 drug convicts who will get out of jail early. In all, about 50,000 prisoners are eligible for early release and federal authorities claim they’re all “non-violent” offenders whose sentences were too long in the first place. Federal prosecutors have warned that drug trafficking is inherently violent and therefore the phrase “non-violent drug offenders” is a misnomer. …

The new more lenient penalty stops the justice system from unfairly targeting minorities and the poor, according to Obama’s first Attorney General, Eric Holder, a driving force behind the change. While drug offenders get off easy in the name of racial justice, the administration has increased punishment for violating federal regulations involving less serious acts such as reeling in too many fish. The feds actually went after a commercial fisherman named Anthony Jospeh for “Fisheries Fraud” because he caught too many fluke. Then, he lied about it to the government—“systematically underreporting fluke”—and that got him in a boatload of trouble.

Last week the New York fisherman got sentenced to seven months in prison, a $603,000 fine and three years of supervised release following incarceration, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) announcement.

Fortunately for the released drug convicts, Obama has made it easy for them to get federal jobs.

Anarchotyranny is government of the criminals, by the criminals, for the criminals. The excessively productive go to jail.
