The POTUS has the power to pardon. It'd be a PR victory for him and also justice because he's served his time for the crime.


He hasn’t served his time at all

‘Life’ was the sentence

And the President doesn’t need a PR victory

Can't wait till your President exit the White House and into a proper Court Rm to be tried for all his alleged crimes, Southern District is waiting and they ain't playing..

“Arrested at 38, Mr. Bryant has already spent nearly 23 years in prison and is now over 60 years old.

Only people who have taken a life deserve that kind of treatment , yes the sentence and denial of parole after 23 years is excessive and shameful too I think.

Hopefully media coverage will highlight the wrong and help gain the man his freedom on licence , good job Fox.

Prison labor is much cheaper than illegal migrant labor. With prisoners the wages pretty much stay in-house so to speak. Undocumented workers usually send the funds elsewhere, therefore providing minimal impact on US economy.

Both groups are giving away their workers rights. They become more like indentured servants. Prisoners get shafted more than illegals. Either group has little recourse and they are essentially agreeing to the T&C. Willingly.

Its the perfect business model, as long as you don't care about the moral and legal implications. But you know, pimping ain't easy.

It is kind of like when you hear about a guy that has five drunk driving convictions.
How do you deal with a person that hasn't figured it out on their 4th try?

At some point, you would hope that they would understand that whatever they are doing is wrong and maybe they shouldn't do that very same thing again.

I take it the 3 strike rule applied?

But to send a Man down, for the rest of his natural life, for choring a set of hedge clippers, just does not sit right in my stomach.

More people in prison per head that any other nation on the planet.

1st world nation my arse.

Then you have Charlie Manson who is living it up on a death penalty because before a timely execution could happen, California declared it “Cruel and Unusual” and saved him permanently.

Statute of Limitations is generally seven years on quite a number of crimes. A second term would be a total of eight years removed from last minute crimes...so better get the list out.

Personally, I have mixed feelings on the DP, I really think it only deters the guy you're executing. People like to say it's a deterent, but we know better.

Innocent people have been put to death..quite a few actually(can't take that back) At the same time, I think some people deserve a dirt nap.

Charlie is an interesting case, as he didn't kill anyone personally, his cohorts should of got the dirt nap for sure. Even if his DP sentence was not commuted, I think it would of been the same costly battles for 10-15 years

The sole judge that thought he should be paroled is a Black woman. Everyone else on the LA Supreme Court is a white male.

Thats the mentality of your typical right wing American isn’t it?

Even mention the idea of a few of their tax dollars going towards healthcare to those in need and they’ll lose there mind... but spending endless millions of tax payers dollars locking people up for the most benign offences you could possibly think of, just some how obviously makes perfect sense.


A "violent offense" is hardly benign.

The electric chair didn’t even deter its inventor, or so the story goes.

zero tolerance. It removes the need to be a thinking person, and you just do what you are told.

I'm not a fan.


Except it’s not zero tolerance, is it? Are you telling me there aren’t any multiple rapers (RAPERS, that’s right, NOT RAPPERS, before AugustusMasonicus comes in and makes a joke comment) walking around free after serving like 5 years in that state? Or any state?

Was he sentenced under Bill Clinton's three strike law? Put into effect in 1994. Uncle Joe sponsored the bill when he was a senator.



Oh but according to one of our posters in this thread, this guy being in prison for his whole life is Republicans’ fault.
