Herr Führer Trump
I wouldn’t GAF if Trump freed every Black person in prison, he is what he is. This is nothing but propaganda. ‘Oh, look black people, I’m your savior. I helped you more than Obama ever did. You should vote for me!’ BS! No white man has EVER been a savior for Black people. We’ve always saved ourselves. No president in the history of America has ever done anything for Black people. I don’t want to see anything about Lincoln. He was pro-slavery. He only allowed the slaves fight in the war because they needed the extra help. So that was nothing but a business decision, just like these pardons are. You have to be an illegal immigrant, so you can have ENTIRE cities set up for you and the government protect you. When has a mayor of a city ever said that they were willing to go to jail for Black people? Protect us from these brutalizing, killer KKKops, discrimination in school, etc. Illegals are able to come over here and piggyback off of our blood, sweat, and tears.

Kim Kardashian wants to be recognized something other than just a pretty face I'm sure she is a good person for owning up to her cause she is a good role model. But probably what's made her plea even more attractive to illegitimate president trump the fact that president Barack Obama the greatest president this country ever had didn't make time for one more clemency so the aspect that president Obama could have should have was very very appealing to president trump who is fully convinced that he is the greatest thing ever happened to this country. ( president trump is a big joke).

Something Fishy to answer your question I'm not high on anything never done drugs or consume alcohol I don't use the artificial form of stimulation. President Barack Obama's greatest achievement is the affordable care act while medicare and Medicaid is something similar the affordable care act limits the monopoly of doctors hospitals pharmaceutical and insurance companies. It encompasses a multi dimensional platform limiting the monopoly in the structure giving more choices and freedom to individuals and those who needs it most. Billionaire Donald j trump doesn't like that because if he the billionaire can grow a new kidney in a lab for 50k someone who is not a billionaire should not be able to do the same. The medical field is a trillion dollar business but humans not built from paper we built from flesh and decay degenerate and die and I don't want that a Republican or mobster like president to decide when my best friend should be taken off life support because of her or my inability to pay.

It was pointed out that Alice Marie Johnson had not committed a violent crime but did the addicts she helped to create commit violent crimes because of their addiction? That question should have been asked but it wasn't. I think a user should be considered for mercy before a dealer is.

Because he is not. You have been manipulated and brainwashed by the Democratic media. Hollywood and the media loved him before he ran against Clinton.

How can you breathe and walk at the same time? Look, this is easy.. When a con wants to get you to buy crap merchandise in bulk, they'll show you a real piece to wet your interest, sell it at a loss because it's a great bait and switch. Kanye West has been blowing Trump for weeks. He's proved he's a loyal fool. His wife has reigned him in a bit but he pulls the gimme for her, for this one drug conviction, not the tens of thousands of other drug convictions, he takes pressure off Kanye and they can spin it as all kinds of PR and claim such that morons like you will believe he is not a racist based on one act while ignoring dozens of others that were overtly racist. It's just part of the con. Fool.

spydergs she was a package deal and the reason she went down with them because the Dea was fixated at the time preventing to become much larger drugs are always gang affiliated the violations under current law is so crushing no one is fighting them it's just easier to plead guilty do the time and be done with it ( it's business like) the federal government long long recognized how to turn bad guys into good guys to become informants short of like a civilian double agents depending on persons rapsheet they take much more risk and when they die it remains confidential because the gang affiliation never ends so it's an ongoing saga. The media and Hollywood know the other end has profited very generously by making movies television series it's a trillion dollar business because it's the Quadra marina of fiction and reality ;reality is crushing no matter who you are. The bias by the Dea and other authorities that they never vent after the elite like they do to everyday people the way the law is being used today gives the upper hand to those who can afford to fight the fight. One good example right now is Harvey weinstein. The dude must have snored enough cocaine to blanket l.a. yet his only being charged for portions of his crimes because law enforcement is playing the play book similarly to a bidding process or algorithm. The constitution was never meant to be used that way many many people respects the constitution but trump is not just see thru he enjoys being not normal or average..and that's a problem.
Sofia Ruha you have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m on the side of science and reason. Not fearful hysteria like you. Your war on drugs that you love so much as harmed far more people than any accidental drug overdose or drug abuse.
Great but we need to free everyone locked up for drug, so-called, crimes.

Shaza Maza I’m aware of the facts, I’m saying it is immoral to jail people for wanting to use/sell drugs. It’s a value judgment backed up by the evident harm this war on drugs has done to people/communities.

No. People who are lacing drugs with fentanyl and stuff need to be locked up. For her crime she deserved a few years, maybe 5. But life was excessive.
