    It may cost $31,000 a year to keep someone in prison. Federal prison is more expensive. Someone has to pay the taxes. This year they released non-violent offenders due to COVID.

    Trump has showed much compassion.

    Depends on whom the prisoners rob when they get out. Prison is compassion for the victims.

    Some people claimed increasing taxes is robbery. It costs money to fund the judicial system.

    Wonder why they didn't release or cancel the imprisonment of Lori Loughlin? I suppose it's because they take delight in putting it to a celebrity that no one is above the law. Problem is when you release out everyone else (not guilty of violence) the argument fails. Some people are faced with the law and others are ABOVE it.

    That is politics. They jailed Martha Stewart for insider trading. They jailed attorney Michael Cohen because of an error on his tax return. People sent him books to read in prison. Bernie Madoff got a long sentence for scamming people out of their life’s savings with a ponzi scheme.

    How has he showed compassion? The rate has been going down for about a decade, and it doesn't seem to have done so any faster after Trump took office. I'm still reading the report, but one thing that is fairly well known is how sparing he's been with the pardon power. Some of the change might be from FIRST STEPS, but I'm not sure how much of it is.

    Trump has let out black ones that were doing very long prison sentences. Ones that Obama didn't set free.

    Biden as usual can't remember.

    How did he do that? Trump has used his ability to commute sentences only a handful of times.

    Good enough for me.

    Still. Obama didn't do it.

    And Biden wouldn't remember if he did.

    That is patently false. Obama issued clemency to almost 2000 people.
