Title edited for space. Full title:

"Obama to free hundreds of drug felons under clemency rules designed to un-do mandatory sentences from 'War on Drugs' era"

Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the administration would free convicts who would receive lighter sentences under today's guidelines

The White House set the stage for the move in December with a clemency trial balloon, freeing 8 convicts including 6 with life sentences

Democratic insiders see the move as a legacy-building recognition of a moral wrong that Obama can right before his presidency ends

Republicans counter that it's an election-year stunt meant to break Democratic voters' fixation on the Obamacare insurance system's failures

I'm particularly horrified by this abomination because we have a "non-violent drug offender" in our family who has non-violently done horrific damage, up to and including the death by suicide of her only son.

The witch (I didn't say "bitch" out of respect for female dogs) was adopted by a deceased cousin and her husband and was a difficult child throughout her life until she was introduced to heroin, her life's love, in high school, thereby becoming and remaining a pure nightmare. After graduating from high school she became a life long addict who repeatedly and ruthlessly extorted money from her mother to support her drug habit, quite possibly shortening her mother's life. Even worse, she had three or four children, one of them a boy. She abandoned her husband and all of her children to hook up with one or more other addicts. When he mother died, she refused to attend the funeral, even though her son did. Shortly after that, her son was dumped by his girlfriend. That rejection, combined with the trauma he'd suffered from being abandoned by his mother for heroin, devastated him and, at age 19, he committed suicide by eating a gun.

No one can insult my intelligence by telling me addicts, pushers, and all the way to the top aren't pure evil. The idea that these offenders the Mahdi is getting ready to release are non-violent is also pure crap because most have bargained away higher offenses involving violence to get lower sentences. Indeed, even if they didn't, they've devastated families and lives as badly as many violent criminals, just as our witch did.

My heart goes out to you and your family. The destruction of lives that addicts and alcoholics leave in their wake is rarely talked about because after all they are ‘victimless crimes’.

I don’t like what O is doing because it is nonsense and for nonsense reasons. But that has never let a lib avoid doing it

I should add that the witch, throughout her entire life, has supported herself through various forms of “petty” crime, probably including prostitution, making her a low level curse to any community she happens to infest. That, IOW, is about the least horror that can be expected from each of the subhumans Holder and the Mahdi are releasing.

Your experiences make it hard to continue my support for the WOD, but I point out, that she did all those things even though heroin is illegal. Would there be more drug addicts if drugs were legalized. Probably. But the system we have only serves to give the government more power over our lives.

Statistically, the majority of pardoned offenders will probably be racial minorities. Right out of the Black Panthers 10 point program which was descended from earlier Black Nationalist / Nation of Islam manifestos:

8. We want freedom for all black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails.
We believe that all black people should be released from the many jails and prisons because they have not received a fair and impartial trial.

9. We want all black people when brought to trial to be tried in court by a jury of their peer group or people from their black communities, as defined by the Constitution of the United States.
We believe that the courts should follow the United States Constitution so that black people will receive fair trials. The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives a man a right to be tried by his peer group. A peer is a person from a similar economic, social, religious, geographical, environmental, historical and racial background. To do this the court will be forced to select a jury from the black community from which the black defendant came. We have been, and are being tried by all-white juries that have no understanding of the “average reasoning man” of the black community.

You’ll understand this administration much better if you familiarize yourselves with these writings.

Here’s a hint:

casual pot users are NOT sent to FEDERAL PRISON!

He’s masking the release of some big time cartel types for some more illegal DNC campaign contributions.

They’ll get the votes of the released prisoners and their families—but how many other voters nationwide will this turn off?

I’m sure they’ll wrap this up in the guise of a compassionate righting of wrongs for unjustified length of sentences for non-violent offenders. Some lefties will buy it.

But millions of low information voters are just going to hear that Obama is emptying the prisons of his buddies in crime AND WILL BE INFURIATED AND COME OUT TO VOTE.

The worst part is that he is rewriting the law. Illegally. However bad the people are that he will be setting free things will be worse for the destruction of the rule of law he’s engaged in.
