Obama Reshapes The Judiciary, This Time With A Muslim-American Judge

Obama has taken it upon himself to let a lot of people out of prison. When we say a lot, we’re not exaggerating.

His number has reached a thousand.

Obama reaches 1,000 commuted prison sentences: President has now shortened more jail terms than his 11 predecessors PUT TOGETHER

President Barack Obama surpassed the 1,000 mark for commutations granted during his presidency on Tuesday after shortening sentences for 79 people.

Obama has been granting commutations at rapid-fire pace in his final months in office.

All told, he’s commuted more sentences than the past 11 presidents combined, the White House said.

Most of those who have received clemency are nonviolent drug offenders, though many were also convicted of firearms violations related to drug crimes.

A significant portion had been serving life sentences.

‘It makes no sense for a nonviolent drug offender to be serving decades, or sometimes life, in prison,’ Obama wrote in a Facebook post. ‘That’s not serving taxpayers, and it’s not serving the public safety.’

This chart showing Presidential prison commutations over the years really puts things in perspective:

When history books are written years from now, they will be able to say that Obama was a good friend to criminals.

Is that really the legacy he wants?
