Obama shortens sentences of 22 drugs offenders

President Barack Obama has ordered the release of 22 drug dealers - including eight who were serving life sentences.

Nearly all of the offenders who Obama granted clemency to were convicted of dealing addictive, hard drugs like crack cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin.

Eight of those whose sentences were commuted - an act the White House said continues Obama's push to make the justice system fairer - were serving terms of life in prison.

The effort is aimed at reducing harsh sentences for those who faced outdated guidelines at their time of sentencing and would be serving shorter punishments had they been convicted today.

It's all part of the plan to devolve this once civil country into anarchy and collapse. There is no other logical explanation to this and pretty much everything else the kenyan has done. He is the enemy.

Personally, I don't think anyone convicted of a non-violent crime should do jail time. Community service and/or fines. I'm tired of paying to feed, cloth and provide better health care than I receive myself.

I have heard they are talking about closing at least 35%-45% of the Jails across America to help reduce and cut the Budgets across the country. The President is now just testing the waters..Watch

Anon 7:37 Screw you I haven't ever even had a traffic ticket and I'm in my fifties! No, dying from a drug overdose is a very bad personal choice for which I and the rest of the hard-working, tax-paying American citizens are NOT responsible. It is not a violent crime.

Really? That's all you got?
