This is what happens when a presidential administration works to subvert the nation.
Judicial Watch has just issued a damning report and one that shows the fatal effects of the Obama administration's program to release federal inmates en masse.
Now, one convicted crack dealer who was released early under the program has been indicted by a grand jury for fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend and her children.
The tragedy took place in Columbus, Ohio, and has since garnered national attention due to the particular heinousness of the crime. JW reports:
This week a grand jury in Franklin County returned a 10-count, death-penalty indictment against the ex-con, 35-year-old Wendell Callahan, for the triple murders. Callahan broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and stabbed the three victims, according to a statement issued by Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announcing the indictment. The bloody crime scene was discovered by the woman’s current boyfriend, who subsequently engaged in a fight with Callahan before he fled. The indictment includes charges of aggravated murder with prior calculation and design and aggravated murder of victims under the age of 13. “There are multiple charges regarding the three victim deaths because there are different methods to commit the crime of murder and the Prosecutor’s Office typically charges all methods”, O’Brien stated. Callahan is in jail on $3 million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned later this week.
The report explains how Callahan should have remained in prison, but that he was instead released four years early "because federal sentencing guidelines for crack dealers got reduced":
The change is part of President Obama’s effort to reform the nation’s justice system as a way of ending racial discrimination. The initiative was technically launched back in 2010 when the president signed a measure that for the first time in decades relaxed drug-crime sentences he claimed discriminated against poor and minority offenders. This severely weakened a decades-old law enacted during the infamous crack cocaine epidemic that ravaged urban communities nationwide in the 1980s. As part of the movement the U.S. Sentencing Commission lowered maximum sentences for drug offenders and made it retroactive, leading to the early release of thousands of violent thugs like Callahan.
In November the administration began releasing 6,000 drug convicts coined “non-violent” offenders whose sentences were too long under the old guidelines. News reports quickly surfaced contradicting the administration’s assessment that the newly released convicts were not violent. Among them was the leader of a multi-million dollar operation that smuggled drugs from Canada to Maine. Prosecutors refer to the 29-year-old con as a “drug kingpin” who was one of “America’s Most Wanted.” Shortly before the administration’s mass release of drug convicts, federal prosecutors warned that drug trafficking is inherently violent and therefore the phrase “non-violent drug offenders” is a misnomer. The nation’s prosecutors also cautioned that reducing prison sentences for drug offenders will weaken their ability to bring dangerous drug traffickers to justice.
JW notes that if releasing dangerous drug kingpins weren't bad enough, the Obama administration is also rewarding said convicts with taxpayer-funded programs that help them find housing and jobs.
According to the report, one such program to help released convicts find housing received $1.7 million in taxpayer funding while another program by the Department of Labor was funded to the tune of $20 million.
