Do the crime, do the time, or not, maybe get back into the business (or something)

2016/12/19

Obama has more than doubled the number of people he has pardoned as president, according to the White House, a number that now stands at 148. He has now commuted the sentences of 1,176 people, including 395 serving life sentences.
. . .
Obama has granted clemency more times than any U.S. president, part of his effort to free inmates (convicted of Federal Crimes) serving lengthy sentences handed down during the government’s War on Drugs.
. . .
Conveniently turning his action into a race based issue,  Obama has repeatedly denounced long sentences for nonviolent drug offenders, saying they’ve had a disproportionate affect on communities of color.
. . .
The clemency initiative identifies federal prisoners deserving of an early release. Prisoners must be low-level, nonviolent offenders who have served at least a decade of their sentence, demonstrated good behavior and have no significant criminal history or a history of violence (while incarcerated).

[Also consider what level of criminal education they may have received about their former trade over the course of that decade, nor forgetting any hidden animosities for retribution to individuals that may have had them incarcerated in the first place.]
. . .
Obama’s critics say he has overstepped his authority and put dangerous criminals back into their communities. [But what would they know, right?]

Article: Obama grants clemency to 231 inmates in one-day record

Now consider all the positive things Obama has done for Islamic Terrorism through his early release program at Guantanamo.  Now just imagine if you can, how will the recidivism outcomes of this so-called ‘executive decision’ turn out?  What kind of ‘Hope & Change‘ legacy will this domestic action bring about for the rest of the nation’s citizens?

The truth is already out there.

A statistical study published in an article by the National Institute of Justice (June 2014), showed 76.9 percent of drug offenders were rearrested by the end of the first year. Other felonious crimes are also listed for review.

Obama’s Social Justice side effects

The Chicago police department says that a hard core of 1,400 recidivist gun offenders — many of them gang members or drug dealers — are fueling much of the violence.

“We’re beyond frustrated,” said Anthony Guglielmi, a police department spokesman. “You could reduce the violence in the city by 40 percent just by keeping people in jail for crimes they have committed.”  
. . .
But officials admit that tougher gun laws cannot fix the deeper problems at the root of the violence.

Johnson, the city’s police chief, who is black, insists he understands the pitfalls.

“I want our focus to be on individuals that we know are driving the violence on the streets,” he said.
. . .
“The last thing I’m looking to do is lock someone up based on the color of their skin or where they live.”

Obviously Obama isn’t listening or paying attention to his hometown ‘folks‘ either. After all redistribution of criminality is like social justice, or something. Right?

Making America safer? Barack Hussein Obama, who somewhat braggartly wrote of his using cocaine in the past, still seems to have a soft spot for its dealers even though he allegedly no longer imbibes.  Unsurprisingly, Obama’s “pardons” and commutations are mainly to focus on cocaine dealers of color.  And to be sure, non-violent drug offenders don’t characteristically operate at the levels of criminal activity these felons were incarcerated for.

Innovation out of necessityMexican boy designs bullet-proof backpack, U.S. cities ruled by fatal liberalism and draconian gun control laws may want to think about this … It would be for the children you know.
