Obama Commutes Life Sentence of Non-Violent Drug Offenders
The President made the right choice today, after some crack offenders were sentenced to life in prison for non-violent crimes.
The President explained: "Today, I am commuting the prison terms of eight men and women who were sentenced under an unfair system. Each of them has served more than 15 years in prison. In several cases, the sentencing judges expressed frustration that the law at the time did not allow them to issue punishments that more appropriately fit the crime."
Mandatory minimums are just wrong, I'd like to see someone make a credible case for them....
