Obama pardons 5, commutes 1 sentence for convictions including selling drugs, gambling.

Shouldn't be crimes in the first place. Now if he could pardon the other few thousands locked up for non-violent drug charges.

Are you referring to Compeán and Ramos? Didn't Bush already commute their sentence a while back?

This may be a stupid question, but how do you pardon a 3 year sentence for someone who was sentenced in 1988?

Yeah! Right on! The President should have the power to decided what is/is not a crime.

Probably pardons the crime. Sentence has been long served. more ceremonial than anything else. Dude can now say he has a clean record!

He's the first President who is pardoning individuals who were unjustly sentenced, as opposed to the usual practice of issuing pardons for the politically connected.

Reasonable question. I would think he's pardoning the crime committed and not commuting time that has already been served.
