Here are the 46 people whose sentences Obama just commuted

President Obama on Monday commuted the sentences of dozens of drug offenders in federal prisons, saying the 46 people had served sentences disproportionate to their crimes. It’s the most commutations in a single day since at least the administration of President Lyndon Johnson.

Now I am ALL for realaseasing all non-violent drug offenders. However, on this list are 4 people who were convicted on firearms related felonies. I find that disturbing that this president who wants to curb yours and my rights, would release people who were convicted of the existing gun laws today.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he did so for good reasons.
I'd just like to see a push for federal decriminalization of marijuana at least though.

Re: Here are the 46 people whose sentences Obama just commuted

This is the stupidity of gun control legislation. It doesn't address the real problems with gun violence. I'm not against gun control laws but if you think they are going to cut down on gun violence you are wrong because it is just plain stupid thinking to commute the sentences of criminals convicted of having firearms when the shouldn't have had them and then wanting to pass gun control legislation to keep guns out of the hands of the people you just released for being in possession of guns they shouldn't have had anyway is just plain stupid.

These were not non violent drug users.

They were drug dealers, you know the people that supply the poison that kills kids.

Why would the President release drug dealers back into the population?

When this story came out I thought those being released were in for long period for possession, not dealing.

That is a whole different animal.

At this point in our experience with Obama and his administration, why would you be surprised when he chooses to act the way that does the maximum amount of damage to America?

What part of "Vengeance for my Father" and Punishment for America's "Sins of Colonialism" don't you understand?

What Part of Transform-America into a Socialist/Muslim Nation isn't Obvious?

"Tis better to bow down and lick the boot of your oppressor, and hope for their handout and mercy.....rather than to rise up and fight for dignity and freedom.... and risk loss of cell phone and cable TV"

Mr. Obama knew going into his run for the WH that this simple characteristic of the Fat & Happy Amerikan People could be 100% relied upon. Seems he was absolutely correct.

What I am surprised at is so many people on this board have no problem letting drug dealers back out onto the streets.

I have no illusions about Obama.

Which ones in the story were the ones supplying poison to the children?

Every one of them. That is what drug dealers do, or are you going to defend crack dealers as harmless?

You made a claim that they were dealing to children. Prove it. If they were selling drugs to adults who were willing buying the drugs I have no problem with that.

I guess the real test would be to see how many of them end up charged with a crime again. that's if anyone follows up on it.

I am sure you don't. What do I need to prove. Do drug dealers not sell to kids as well as adults?

They will be watched very closely and I would bet most of them will re-offend, but I doubt Obama cares about that at all.

I am sure you don't.

Correct. I have no problem with one adult selling a product and another adult wanting to buy the product.

What do I need to prove. Do drug dealers not sell to kids as well as adults?

I don't know how to ask the question any simpler. You claimed that the prisoners being pardoned in the article were dealing to children. Prove it.

I believe that Obama expects those he just let loose, like the 65K Illegal Immigrants being held on criminal charges up to murder and rape, that he released, ...

I believe that Obama not only expects those to re-offend, he is counting on it. The fact that they will re-offend, hurting America, is WHY he let them go!

Like the Obama actions on the Economy, driven by the Cloward-Piven Strategy, the release of these people is Sabotage.

Look at the many other ways in which he has done such. Why is America blocking the Refugee Asylum of Middle Eastern Christians, who are daily being beheaded and raped, and yet spends $108 Billion Dollars to bring several Million Muslim to America!

These are actions of a President consumed by Hatred of and Vengeance against America.

If you read the article you statement is a lie. The majority of the offenders wr were busted for crack (cocaine base). Crack dates back to almost 40 years ago.

So he commutes the sentences for crimes you don't think should be crimes in the first place, and that makes you mad.
