All through Barack Obama’s presidency, he showed just how lenient he was towards individuals that society would consider to be dangerous criminals. Inmates like terrorists and drug dealers were treated almost like royalty, as Obama commuted their prison sentences and set them free.
During his presidential tenure, he closed the Guantanamo Bay prison that held some of the most dangerous Islamic terrorists in the world, sending dozens of jihadists back to their leadership roles with ISIS, Al Queda, and other terrorist organizations.
He also gave clemency in 2016 to a drug dealer, Carol Denise Richardson, who was serving a life sentence for her involvement in a crack cocaine ring. But now the woman is on her way back to prison after violating the terms of her clemency by getting arrested for theft and quitting her job. Barack must be so proud!
Via The Daily Caller:
A convicted cocaine dealer released from prison early by former President Barack Obama is going to be an inmate again after getting arrested for theft and violating the terms of her release.
Carol Denise Richardson, 49, was arrested by the Pasadena (Texas) Police Department on April 13, less than a year after her life sentence for cocaine trafficking was cut short. She was placed on supervised release for ten years and the arrest and probation violations, such as quitting her job, will send her back to federal prison for 14 months.
In a Thursday hearing, assistant U.S. Attorney Ted Imperato said, “This defendant was literally given a second chance to become a productive member of society and has wasted it. She has clearly shown a willful disregard for the law and must face the consequences for her crime and actions.”
Obama commuted a record amount of convicts, 1,715, and Richardson is at least the second of the bunch to have been arrested after their release. Robert M. Gill, another drug dealer, was arrested with two pounds of cocaine more than a year after his release, according to the New York Post.
Barack Obama loved to ingratiate himself to the less trustworthy members of society, and he usually just demonstrated how naive and foolish he was. He must have felt a kindred spirit with them because of his own reputed drug use and lax morals.
We just hope that his naivete’ doesn’t come back to haunt us.
