    Default President visits a prison

    I like that he is wanting to reform the sentencing of non-biolent criminals. Keep the bad people in prison, but don't put somebody in prison for life for selling pot with no violence involved in they're arrest. Will reduce the overcrowding in the prisons, therefore reducing the burden of the taxpayers to keep these non-violent people locked up.

    He's done nothing to fix the VA mess yet, he should finish that one before he lets more violent criminals out of prison. They've already let thousands of Illegal Alien violent felons out. If you don't want to get sent to prison for selling pot, don't sell pot, its pretty simple.

    He wrote personal letters to all 47 people he pardoned but not even a mention of that poor girl in SF murdered by the Illegal felon. Shameful.

    Then you can invite them to your house for a camp fire and sing kum ba ya together. Maybe invite the neighborhood kids to come hang with these fine upstanding individuals. Then you can set a good friend's daughter up with one even.

    There's going to be a big push by progressives to make it legal for imprisoned felons to vote in federal elections. (Between the drug war and abortion, they've gotten rid of a big chunk of their constituency) I'm libertarian enough to want to see sentencing reform. I don't trust these guys to do it.

    You still need to work on reading comprehension. The OP is about NON VIOLENT offenders

    I didn't see any tax offenders on the list. Wouldn't they be safest prisoners to release? Just a opinion.

    Someone on the TV said that obama was doing a documentary film at the prison. That was once, no repeat of that idea since. His trip to Oklahoma involved a stop among the members of one Native American tribe. Some good PR for our prez right now. Kissing babies went out of style a long time ago ! Just go around and "glad hand" the public at large. Be sure and "kiss up" to a bunch of groups of people.

    Tax offenders don't even go to prison any more. Just ask Al and gang.
