Here we go again. President Obama is continuing his onslaught on American values by releasing a record number of criminal into our streets.
Granting clemency is something that a President can do. It essentially negates a prison term and is something done sparingly by presidents, if at all. Obama has let a record number of criminal free during his tenure and today he let go 214 federal prisoners including 67 who were serving life sentences.
This is sick.
President Barack Obama is cutting short the sentences of 214 federal inmates, including 67 serving life sentences.
The White House says it’s the largest batch of commutations on a single day in more than a century. Almost all the prisoners were serving time for nonviolent drug offenses.
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.
White House counsel Neil Eggleston says Obama will continue granting clemency to more inmates during the final months of his presidency. He says those receiving commutations were imprisoned under antiquated, overly harsh sentencing laws.
Most of those receiving commutations Wednesday will be released December 1.
Just more proof that Obama hates America.
More than the last 9 combined. Sure makes you wonder.
