BREAKING: Biden Pardons THOUSANDS of Violent Felons in Time for the Midterms
Yeah, you can trust the Democrats on crime.
At 4pm today, The New York Times reported:
“President Biden on Thursday pardoned all people convicted of marijuana possession …
“The pardons will clear about 6,500 people who were convicted on federal charges of simple possession of marijuana from 1992 to 2021 and thousands more who were convicted of possession in the District of Columbia, officials said ahead of the president’s announcement.”
NO ONE GOES TO FEDERAL PRISON FOR MARIJUANA POSSESSION! I don’t care what the “conviction” says. “In 2021, 98.3 percent of federal cases ended up as plea bargains,” as the Times admitted back in June.
We want to know what’s in the arrest report, not what the plea bargain says.
Criminal defense lawyer: They’re charging you with manslaughter, so I recommend plea—
Criminal: Okay, I’ll plead to Murder One.
Criminal defense lawyer: No, no, no! How about illegal possession of a gun, assault … marijuana possession?
Criminal: Oh I see! I plead to something LESS.
You don't strike a deal with the prosecutor to plea to the worst crime you've committed. You plea to your least serious offense:
Armed robbery = illegal gun possession
Rape = indecent exposure
Felony assault = marijuana possession
You also plead guilty to the crime that can be proved . Guess what can’t be intimidated out of testifying? Guns and drugs. “Snitches get stitches” won’t get you out of a “possession” crime.
When Biden says he’s pardoning those convicted only of “marijuana possession,” he’s actually pardoning violent criminals and drug traffickers. But he is willing to put thousands violent felons on the streets and allow them to legally purchase guns, just so they can vote in the midterms.
