wait for it - many of them will vote for the dems. That's the only reason he'd do

all this, outside of slapping American in the face, and causing severe social crisis.

 

he's done the same with terrorists in Gitmo. And inviting all comers, violent rapists/sadistic torturers/terrorists

to come freely across our border.

 

what is there to be gained by creating these crises? stay tuned. It's a dangerous time, with a dangerous

man in our WH.

By his own admission, President Obama used to snort coke (a.k.a., “a little blow”). On Wednesday, by his own decree, the President commuted the sentences of some 61 drug dealers. Most of the 61 mid-week commutations free felons convicted of cocaine possession with intent to distribute, the rest relating to the illegal distribution of other controlled substances. Wait. What’s this? Twelve of the felons listed by thewashingtonpost.com were convicted of a firearms offense! Here’s one . . .

Tommy Howard – Cincinnati, OH

Offense: Use of a firearm during the commission of a drug trafficking offense; Southern District of Ohio Sentence: 292 months’ imprisonment; five years’ supervised release; $1,000 fine (January 8, 2004) Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on July 28, 2016.

Let’s look a little deeper into Mr. Howard’s case, shall we? casetext.com tells the tale . . .

On April 7, 2003 the Cincinnati Police Department (“CPD”) stopped Petitioner for a traffic violation (doc. 23). Petitioner did not have a valid driver’s license, but possessed a temporary driver’s permit (Id.). No licensed driver accompanied him in the car as required by Ohio law (Id.). Petitioner granted the request of the CPD to search his vehicle (Id.).

The officers found a semi-automatic handgun underneath the driver’s seat (Id.). Upon discovery of the weapon, Petitioner attempted to flee on foot from the officers (Id.). After a short chase, the officers apprehended Petitioner and the CPD continued its search of the automobile (Id.). The officers discovered powder cocaine, a digital scale, bags of marijuana, and several empty plastic baggies (Id.). The officers gave Petitioner the Miranda warnings and questioned him. Petitioner claimed that he found the guns and drugs in a bag on a neighboring street (Id.).

The government charged Petitioner with possession of ammunition by a convicted felon in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1), possession with the intent to distribute cocaine in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841, and possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking offense in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924©(1) (Id.).

Ultimately, a federal grand jury issued a four count indictment alleging: (1) possession of ammunition by a convicted felon in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1); (2) possession with the intent to distribute cocaine in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841; (3) possession with the intent to distribute marijuana in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841; and (4) possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking offense in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924©(1) (Id.). Petitioner entered a plea of guilty to Count Four, pursuant to a plea agreement (Id.). During his plea colloquy, Petitioner admitted carrying the firearm and possession of the narcotics (Id.).

The Court sentenced Petitioner to 292 months, five years supervised released, a $100.00 general assessment, and a $1,000.00 fine (Id.). Petitioner appealed this sentence; his direct appeal was denied (Id.).

So Mr. Howard was a convicted felon dealing drugs and carrying a firearm (and ammo!) who tried to have his conviction overturned by arguing a technical issue, an “absence of evidence” and ineffective counsel. (Jailhouse lawyer much?)

Mr. Obama wants to stop “gun violence” by degrading and destroying law-abiding Americans’ natural, civil and constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. He just pardoned 12 firearms-toting felons. Connect the dots.

Oh wait. You can’t. What does that tell you? Anyway, I wonder how Mr. Howard scored the presidential pardon brass ring. And why Mr. Obama decided to go on this particular coke binge.

I didn't see a single offense where the firearm was discharged against someone. Every single case, and I scrolled through about 20-30 of em, the individual was found to have a gun on them while committing the drug offense. ALL of these dealers have to carry, it's just normal operating procedure in that world.So the fact they were caught with a firearm doesn't mean they were violent offenders during the commission of that crime.

 

Cal did you bother to read your own cut and paste? The guy fled on foot and they later found guns in his car. Again what am I missing? I'm not going to debate one way or the other if these guys should have their sentences commuted, I would have to look at each individual personally. Can't happen. What i'm perplexed about though is your guys insistence that this is just some secret program to get cocaine dealers back on the street cause you know ole Barry will need dealers again once he's out of the white house.

 

Stop it. It's stupid and embarrassing. You're embarrassing yourself. I'm embarrassed for you.

find me the violent offender in there cal cause I didn't see it. In a perfect world we could keep all these people locked up but we're running out of space....prioritization maybe? I'd rather these guys get off than pedo's and rapists, who are usually considered at the same level as low to mid level drug offenders. So often those guys go free cause they went through the drug offense candidates. If we can get rid of millions of the non violent drug offenders we don't have to make compromises, we can keep the real predators out of our society.

You won't, trust me. Your point is wayy too logical and backed by mounds of research but it's not even worth the time.

actually the food industry needs rounded up too, cause sugar is a legit drug..infact our bodies consider it a poison which is why it converts to fat so readily. It's our bodies way of storing toxins for later disposal. Plus they deliberately tinker with the salt, fat and sugar ratio's in foods in order to mimick the same neural stimulations that opiates like Heroin induce, albeit on a lesser frequency but over time the result is the same...addiction. Now we're swimming in deep waters fella's.

I get what you're saying but comparing sugar to cocaine and heroin and such isn't the best comparison.

 

If you're selling cocaine on the street you deserve to go to jail - many of these people he's pardoned were serving grossly long sentence though so I don't have a problem with the pardons.

Right. Cocaine trafficking is no big deal. Shit. No gun. No harm. What a bunch of fucking idiots some of you are.

 

nobody saying it isn't a big deal archie. But these guys had already served alot of time, more than if they would have been convicted recently. Do you get that? Somebody gets convicted today of the same crime they get a much lesser sentence.....so there's really nothing to do here.
