Obama Grants Clemency to 46 Drug Offenders, But Thousands Turned Away

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

President Barack Obama announced Monday that he is commuting the sentences of 46 people incarcerated for federal drug convictions, prompting a lukewarm response from rights campaigners, who say the small act of clemency is vital for the people impacted—but a far cry from the deep change needed.

The president commuted all 46 sentences to expire on November 10, with the full list of people granted clemency is available here.

We have a screwed up system of morality and law. We have stiff sentences for laws that make no sense. We arrest and throw people in prison for doing things that shouldn't even be against the law.
As far as drugs go, Obama smoked pot, Bush was a coke head alcoholic, and as we all know Clinton smoked pot, but he didn't inhale. Now we have a few ordinary folks who were busted for drugs and Obama is commuting their sentence because everyone needs a second chance. Those poor bas***ds never had a first chance.

What a phony is Obama. Is it any wonder why so many are locked up in Federal prisons? He continued the "War on Drugs" begun by the Bush Drug-Running Family to keep any competition from spoiling their profits. "Poppy" Bush (George Herbert Walker Bush) isn't nick-named Poppy for nothing. He was the war advisor in Vietnam where his CIA ran opium to the US in the body bags of dead US soldiers. Then the very same agency got caught running cocaine in Iran-Contra with Bush's favorite drug runner Barry Seal in Bill Clinton's back yard in Arkansas.

At the time, Senile Raygun who'd been shot by Bush's top campaign contributor's Son: John Hinckley Jr., wisely started sleeping through cabinet meetings and let VP George Poppy Bush run Central American affairs, so as not to get shot again (Ref: Hinkley dinner with bush's sons night before shooting. source: Houston Chronicle).

LBJ was a dangerous wild animal, but at least he cared about his legacy a little bit, released more from prison, and passed more citizen protection laws than this CIA creep from BIC bank (Barack Obama, aka: Double Agent Barry Soetoro.) LBJ knew deep down that he was a low scoundrel and refused to run a second term.

But this scumbag has no shame at all. Obomber openly admitted to torturing people! And did less than zero to hold the Nazis like Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeild accountable for this despicable medieval policy.

What a piece of chit!

Obama has done very little for African Americans while he has been in office....I doubt he will do much more before 2016.

US President Barack Obama commutes the prison sentence of 46 drug offenders

When he releases drug/poison distributors from prison, what messages is Mr. Obama sending to mature, responsible, loving, caring moms and dads living in struggling communities and neighborhoods?

What is Mr. Obama saying to single-moms and/or dads who everyday are faced with stresses and challenges of keeping their children safe from physical or emotional harm, and the anti-social influences of The Street culture that a irresponsible Baltimore mom failed to protect her young teen son from?

Restore Pride In Parenting; End Child Abuse & Neglect

Victims of Horrific Child Abuse; Young American Kendrick Lamar Boldly Speaks About Child Abuse, The Seeds of Poverty and Crime

With all due respect to my American neighbors of African descent, the oppression of humans that led to racism and slavery has been replaced with a new form of human oppression that impedes and deprives many American children from experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled "I", Kendrick Lamar writes, "I've been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent."

During a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview (Google search) Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy award, he told the interviewer:

"Lamar's parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. "My mom's one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton," he says."

"I'm 6 years old, seein' my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin' dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, 'cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like 'Average Joe.'"

It seems evident to me Kendrick identified the source of his depression, the roots of poverty, the child abuse/maltreatment that prevented him, his brothers, sisters, cousins, neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates from enjoying a fairly happy, safe Average Joe and Josie American kid childhood.

Seems the adults responsible for raising the children in Kendrick's immediate and extended family placed obstacles in their children's way, causing their kids to deal with challenges and stresses young minds are not prepared to deal with...nor should they or any other children be exposed to and have to deal with.

It seems evident to me these PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles and challenges cause some developing children's minds to become tormented and go haywire, not knowing OR NOT CARING ABOUT right from wrong...because as the mature, young victims of child abuse realize their parents introduced them to a life of pain and struggle, totally unlike the mostly safe, happy life the media showed them many American kids were enjoying. RESENTMENT

I cannot speak for anyone else, but if I was raised in Kendrick's family I would most likely be silently peeved at my parents for being immature irresponsible "living wild" adults who deprived me of a safe, happy childhood.

Though like many victims of child abuse, most likely I would deny my parents harmed me, seeking to blame others for the pain my parents caused to me.

I wonder how little Kendrick and his classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents?

In a Oct 25, 2012, LAWeekly interview (Google search) Kendrick talks about being a SIX-YEAR-OLD child who was not able to trust and rely on his mom...essentially he speaks about being emotionally abandon by his own mom.

Kendrick shares his experiences about feeling lonely, which if you read up on Cognitive Dissonance that Dr. Joy Degruy writes about in her book, "Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS)", is it perfectly understandable why Kendrick feels lonely.

Search Google "Post traumatic Disorder Dr Joy de Gruy Leary - YouTube" to watch a very disturbing yet enlightening 1:21:00 lecture about "Cognitive Dissonance" and how it harms developing kids like Kendrick. Dr. DeGruy does an excellent job describing how "CD" helped perpetuate the human ignorances we call racism and slavery.

Dr. DeGruy also describes how using our common sense, we should be able to understand how "CD" can negatively impact developing children like Kendrick Lamar (born 1987), as well as Tupac Shakur (born 1971) and Shawn 'Jay Z Carter' (born 1969), to name a few more victims of horrific child abuse.

Early in my police career when I was assigned to the Brooklyn community Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter raps/writes about attempting destroy by selling poison to people living and working in his community, and rapping about engaging in extremely harmful anti-social behaviors designed to protect his drug operation from rival gangs in adjoining neighborhoods, a few of my training officers advised me to be prepared to experience "culture shock."

I did find out what "culture shock" is, though it was not a culture of violence and harmful anti-social activities many were insinuating I would be shocked by.

The aspect of this Brooklyn, NY community that shocked me to the core was witnessing children being emotionally scarred by a "American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect" that Kendrick Lamar raps and speaks about some twenty-five years after I first witnessed the "American Sub-Culture of Child Abuse/Neglect" that today CONTINUES emotionally damaging many developing children and their communities.

I personally witnessed the emotional trauma and physical pain a young, neglected, unsupervised, Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter is responsible for causing, and its aftermath, leaving a community populated by mostly peaceful people fearing for their safety on a 24/7 basis, which are the hours Shawn's crew/gang were selling community harming substances.

During the twelve years I served this community I met hundreds of peaceful people who were just as shaken, upset and deeply disturbed as I was by the daily displays of violence and other anti-social activities mostly caused by teens and adults who were victims of childhood abuse and neglect.

I was lucky, at the end of my workday I could leave the community, returning to a more peaceful residential community were concerns for me and my family's safety were significantly lower.

However, virtually all of my civilian co-workers, mostly loving, competent moms living in this community were not as fortunate. They were burdened with stresses and challenges my parents did not face to any significant degree.

The added stresses and challenges my peaceful co-workers faced was preventing their children from being negatively influenced by abused/neglected/unsupervised children being raised and nurtured by immature, "living wild" teen moms and young women who irresponsibly begin building families before they acquired the skills, maturity, PATIENCE and means to independently provide for their family of developing children.

Reading Kendrick's background, if you have any compassion for kids, you have to feel horrible for a FIRST GRADE school child who can't depend on his mom to be there for him, a mom who exposes him to things kids should not have to witness and deal with in their young minds.

Kendrick has taken a bold first step by revealing his mother (and father) made poor choices that deprived him, his brothers and sisters from experiencing a safe, fairly happy Average Joe or Josie American kid childhood....

YET NO ONE IS LISTENING TO KENDRICK....WHY?
