Last week President Obama told 46 convicted felons, some of whom are serving life, they would soon be free.
The president did this after telling the nation the men were non-violent offenders whose sentences did not fit the crime.
Apparently Mr. Obama believes the justice system is biased against minority individuals, especially in drug cases.
And that is the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo.
I firmly believe that selling hard drugs is a violent crime.
Those drugs have killed millions of Americans and enslaved tens of millions over the years.
Seventy-percent of all child abuse and neglect is caused by parents who are substance abusers.
Anyone who sells poison is harming other human beings.
Enter 42-year-old Marlon McNealy, sentenced to life in prison in 1993 for being involved in a major crack cocaine ring that terrorized the west coast of Florida for years.
McNealy's grandfather -- Robert "Wonderman" Lee -- started the drug cartel. He died in prison while also serving life.
The crack operation took in millions of dollars a month and harmed thousands of people.
Yet McNealy is being classified as a nonviolent offender by the president and will soon be released after serving 22 years.
Again, the man sold hard drugs for money and the poison he pushed harmed and killed people.
So should we feel compassion for Marlon McNealy?
You make the call.
And that's the memo.
