    Justice Department set to free 6,000 prisoners, largest one-time release - The Washington Post

    The Justice Department is set to release about 6,000 inmates early from prison — the largest one-time release of federal prisoners — in an effort to reduce overcrowding and provide relief to drug offenders who received harsh sentences over the past three decades, according to U.S. officials.

    The inmates from federal prisons nationwide will be set free by the department’s Bureau of Prisons between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. About two-thirds of them will go to halfway houses and home confinement before being put on supervised release. About one-third are foreign citizens who will be quickly deported, officials said.

    The early releases follow action by the U.S. Sentencing Commission — an independent agency that sets sentencing policies for federal crimes — that reduced the potential punishment for future drug offenders last year and then made that change retroactive.

    The commission’s action is separate from an effort by President Obama to grant clemency to certain nonviolent drug offenders, an initiative that has resulted in the early release of 89 inmates.

    The panel estimated that its change in sentencing guidelines eventually could result in 46,000 of the nation’s approximately 100,000 drug offenders in federal prison qualifying for early release. The 6,000 figure, which has not been reported previously, is the first tranche in that process.

    “The number of people who will be affected is quite exceptional,” said Mary Price, general counsel for Families Against Mandatory Minimums, an advocacy group that supports sentencing reform.

    The Sentencing Commission estimated that an additional 8,550 inmates would be eligible for release between this Nov. 1 and Nov. 1, 2016.

    The releases are part of a shift in the nation’s approach to criminal justice and drug sentencing that has been driven by a bipartisan consensus that mass incarceration has failed and should be reversed.

    And, this comes at the same time that they are talking about further restrictions on the 2A.

    So heavy restrictions on the 2A, non-rehabilitated crack heads and meth heads, what could possibly go wrong?

    Besides the druggies you need to add in our continued open borders and bringing so called Syrians into the country. All of Zero's other plans have not worked yet and he's running out of time for something to happen to declare Martial Law.

    That is because the news folks are not working for you and I to inform us. They are only there to spread the message/propaganda that they are fed to pass on to the sheeple.

    When you watch the news and then have to watch another show to tell you how to interpret the news you just watched is a sign that the news is not beneficial anymore.
