    President Obama commutes another 111 federal sentences

    The announcement adds to the number of commutations already announced by President Obama.
    President Obama on Tuesday announced he had commuted the sentences of another 111 federal inmates, in a continuation of his effort to redefine the criminal justice system’s approach in dealing with nonviolent drug crimes.
    “Today’s 111 commutation grants underscore the President’s commitment to using his clemency authority to provide a second chance to deserving individuals,” White House counsel Neil Eggleston wrote in a blog post.
    The announcement adds to the number of commutations already announced by the Obama, who has repeatedly spoken out about the unfairness and ineffectiveness of the nation’s antiquated, overly harsh sentencing laws for drug crimes, and brings the total number of sentences the President has shortened over his tenure in office to 673.
    That number is greater than the combined commutations of the prior 10 Presidents put together.
    The announcement comes just weeks after Obama revealed that he had commuted the sentences of 214 federal inmates, making August’s 325 federal commutations the greatest number ever granted by a President in one single month.

    President Obama is seen greeting inmates during a 2015 visit to El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in El Reno, Okla.
    Among those affected by Tuesday’s announcement are three New Yorkers:
    *Daniel Williams, of Schenectady, N.Y., who was sentenced to 20 years in prison on drug-related charges in 2008
    *Shannon Cove, of Bronx, N.Y., who was sentenced to life in prison on drug-related charges in 2005
    * Dirk Lasdon, of Bronx, N.Y., who was sentenced to more than 27 years in prison on drug-related charges in 1995

    Same president who outright accused police of being racist is taking photos shaking hands with prisoners. The support for law enforcement in this country is just overwhelming right now.

    I'm ok with it because I know for a fact that Obama will also be working hard to make sure that the released felons and Syrian refugees will be living near he and his family in their next home.

    You can take that to the bank.

    The Philippine president is exterminating all the drug dealers in his country. Not our Barry, he is putting medals on them and setting them loose :jj:

    This guy is unreal. We haven't seen anything yet. He's got 4 more months to finish what he's started.

    If they were just dealing, good. If, however, "drug related" means something violent or otherwise antisocial, maybe not.

    My money is that they're all 'non-violent' offenders, like Chigs thread for example.

    No one is looking to release violent offenders from prison.
