Obama Commutes Terms for More Prisoners in 1 Day than any POTUS in 100 Years

The White House wrote:The White House says it's the largest batch of commutations on a single day in more than a century.
President Obama today shortened the sentences of a total of 214 federal inmates, which includes 67 serving life sentences.
ABC News wrote:The commutations bring to 562 the total number of sentences Obama has shortened. The White House says that's more than the past nine presidents combined. Almost 200 of those who have benefited were serving life sentences.
This administration is actually proud of releasing felons back into our communities, among our families.

Now, for all I know, some may be serving decades-long sentences for possessing a half-ounce of marijuana; I can't say. But I do feel safe in saying that not all those 562 pardoned were otherwise innocent stoners who were merely dumb enough to get pulled over with a joint in the ashtray. And of those more hardened going in, let's not forget that the Ivy League for criminal education is prison.

No stats are going to be kept and, even if they were, no mainstream media would report them. What do you think the recidivism rate will be among Obama's 562+ pardons? Will any of them ever commit a violent crime? Or will they get a steady job, volunteer with a puppy rescue service and Habitat for Humanity, become a regular blood donor, and be the person everyone wants as a neighbor?

And Hillary promises an even more "progressive" administration.

It's hard to choose whether the current racist muslim administration or the main stream media is the greater threat to our American way of life?

While i'm not a fan of the media, The media hasn't turned felons back on the streets where we live.

I guess Barrack Hussein won't be happy until he destroys whatever is left of this country before he leaves office.

I'd like to see how many out of 214 are white, Christian males. Not that I care about releasing any of them, I'm sure they didn't land there for helping old woman carry groceries out to the car, but I was just wondering.

Feds like to tally everything else up nicely into statistical demographic / racial buckets, so it would be nice to know...

The Democratic Party is becoming the party of criminals. It wants to turn loose or fail to prosecute criminals based on skin color. At least that seems to me to be the only way they can "balance" the populations of our prisons. It wants to give the vote back even to violent criminals. They want to give the vote to people who have defied our laws and entered our nation illegally. They have legitimized BLM so that it now has a list of demands that it is beyond incredible. The list goes on. Is it any surprise Obama carries out this action? I have heard it said the Democratic Party has become the Anti-God Party, but now I see it is also the Anti-America Party. At least the America that was created by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and our rule of law. Our nation is under attack from the inside by it's own. We are a nation divided.

He's got this blood on his hands from early release. I wonder how many others?

They are not giving the vote, they are using the vote as a bribe to get the votes of the folk you reference. The democrats will say or do anything for a vote. (no caps intended)

Of Course. The point is they offer anything to literally anyone and say any lie in order to gain more power. At the top, the dems couldn't care less about any of these people but they have learned how to sway the stupid sheep.

They believe that felons should have the right to vote. I am not against that, just have it added to the constitution if that is even possible.

It would be good to ask Hillary and the Donald what they think about this. Trump should jump on this with both feet.

We need a catchy name for these, keep them in the public eye. I would call them "Obama-murders", but he's leaving office. "Dem Murders" maybe.

Very well said. The socialists sow hatred and chaos. They weaken the people. They attempt to drive them to the government for answers and aid. They oppose Christianity because they want the people to be reliant on the government, not God. They want us hopeless, broken, and fighting amongst ourselves so that we will be in no position to fight them when they take over. Ideally, they want us to beg them to take over and fix the problems they created in the first place. The modern democrat party is the socialist party. It is anti-God, and it is anti-America. Pray for our country daily.
