So one of the prisoners that got a pardon recently was sent to a half-way house and was scheduled to be "early-released" by March 22nd.

Strange thing happened the other night however.

Some people stormed into the house and killed the guy !!

Guess he ended up with a "full release".


Ex-gang member ‘executed’ after Obama commutes sentence

Damarlon Thomas had spent years looking for freedom – ever since he was sentenced to two decades in prison for selling half an ounce of crack coc aine.

He’d nearly reached it, with a president’s help. One of 1,715 federal inmates whose sentences were commuted by former president Barack Obama before he left office, Thomas was living in a halfway house in Saginaw, Michigan, awaiting his early release on March 22.

Then on Monday night, police said, two masked men came looking for him.

They stormed in carrying high-powered rifles, Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser told the Saginaw News.

There has to be A LOT more to this story. A basic no violent "street" dealer gets executed like this? Maybe someone was worried about him talking? Maybe they didn't want him to leave the gang?

Maybe he said "ha ha i'm going free bitches, enjoy your showers" and the inmates dint like it.

It seems more likely that he might of known some stuff that others didn't feel comfortable with him having said knowledge while being free.

There has to be a lot more to the story or it could also be either mistaken identity or just random beef.

Not trying to be coldhearted, but this is not really surprising something like this was going to happen

There's got to be a moral to this story, damned if I can find it and I almost feel guilty for not caring.

Almost.

A rival gang killing?

The rival gang got to hear about his release and saw an opportunity to bump a loyal soldier off. He may have been selling fo the gang, but the sentence would suggest he did not drop any other gang member in the doo doo. They usually reward that kind of behaviour.

Although to have his sentence commuted in this way could have brought about suspicion, particularly if some gang members have recently been arrested.

Eight years in prison and he was only 31, that's sad.

It's not clear through court fillings, most of which discusses his appeals. It does make clear that he was charged with nine other people, and it does state he was at the "retail" level.

It also states he presented himself "distinguishable level of remorse" in comments at court. It almost sounds as though he could have been providing information to investigators. That may have pissed a few people off.

agreed, I suspect he snitched for a lighter sentence.
he may have originally been charged with more crimes.

A decent answer, we really know nothing, and certainly nothing about the guy so far. It is sad, especially when you think of all the high rollers on all sorts of shiite, while someone else goes and gets it for them.

Quite the odd story. I'm wondering if it was his own gang and they felt he didn't do his proper time.

I'm not sure when the offense took place, but selling a half an ounce of crack coc aine is no small thing.. that's quite a decent amount, and he wasn't in possession or buying it, he was distributing it and likely making money from it.

Why didn't the 20 year sentence stick? Why was his sentence commuted in the first place, that's one of my questions.

I'm not making excuses for this killing, not at all. But I'm wondering why ole Barry felt he didn't deserve his full sentence.

Exactly my friend.

George Osborne is a massive coc aine addict, but that's simply acknowledged, so let's get the guy who's selling to the citizens without paying any tax on their income.

Yes, I've seen the pics, never mind his huge conk that is slowly taking over his face.
The 'war' on drugs, it's a laugh for sure.

two things the world could do without; One, gang members who kill people and, people who celebrate the death of other people.
they belong in the same hole.
