I love it! I sign petitions all the time on Change.org to ask Obama for clemency for the people who (I think) deserve it. He is my favorite president :)
President obama has commuted more prison sentances than the last four presidents combined and he is not threw yet. So if u have a life sentance u may be out this christmas how do you feel about this??
All "lame duck" presidents have done this but he has now surpassed the last nine presidents. The only ones being granted clemency are for non-violent drug crimes.
I love it. Another great side of this man. His recent choices was so super disappointing but finally something else to enjoy from him.
Because I am not thoroughly informed, I cannot really answer your Q... Although through experience, I tend to trust the research done by Rooster and a few others on this site.
What I CAN say is that, at least with women prisoners in the State of Iowa, the prison system is very badly messed up. (To give credit to Iowa, there have been significant efforts to improve.)

I know that Obama is aware of the problems in the US justice sytem, he will do his best to help, and I hope (and I tend to trust him) that what he is doing is a good step.
With all of the Illegal aliens he allowed to come into
the U.S. Along with 10,000 refuges just recently,
some say if its not the end of America if could be
the last generation.
