JUST IN: Biden Pardons Woman Convicted Of Murder

(Republican Insider) – The Democrats have made clear their stance on crime. They’d rather give criminals special treatment and accommodations than support law enforcement and protect innocent, law-abiding citizens.

There’s lawlessness all over the country, from the southern border to major cities to the White House, as a result of the Democrat’s and the Biden regime’s radical, progressive policies. Lawlessness is the theme of this current administration.

Now Joe Biden has pardoned six individuals who served out prison sentences after convictions of crimes ranging from murder to drug and alcohol-related incidents. The list of pardoned individuals includes an 80-year-old woman who was convicted of killing her abusive husband nearly a half-century ago.

Now her record has been expunged along with the five others chosen by Biden. The pardons come just months after Biden pardoned thousands of people convicted of “simple possession” of marijuana under federal law.

Additionally, he’s pardoned three other people last year and commuted the sentences of 75 others. Joe Biden has been busy helping criminals out while American citizens are left to suffer through record high inflation, gas prices and dangerous situations at the southern border. If only the regime would put a little bit of effort into fixing the problems it’s created.

In a report regarding the pardons, the Associated Press explained how Biden’s stance on low-level crimes has changed over the years.

“In the 1990s, he supported crime legislation that increased arrest and incarceration rates for drug crimes,” the AP wrote, “particularly for Black and Latino people. Biden has said people are right to question his stance on the bill, but he also has encouraged them to look at what he’s doing now on crime.”

The pardons were announced while Biden was on St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands with his family. The White House explained that the pardons were being issued to the chosen individuals because they went on to serve their communities and contended that they reflect Biden’s opinion that people deserve a second chance.

The AP reported on the six people being pardoned:

— Beverly Ann Ibn-Tamas, 80, of Columbus, Ohio. At age 33, Ibn-Tamas was convicted of killing her husband. She testified that her husband beat her, verbally abused her and threatened her. She told jurors that she shot him moments after he had assaulted her, while she was pregnant. The judge refused to allow expert testimony on battered woman syndrome, a psychological condition that can develop among victims of domestic violence. Ibn-Tamas got one to five years of incarceration with credit for time served. Her appeal was among the first by someone with battered woman syndrome, and her case has been studied by academics.

— Charles Byrnes-Jackson, 77, of Swansea, South Carolina. Byrnes-Jackson pleaded guilty to possession and sale of spirits without tax stamps when he was 18, and it involved a single illegal whiskey transaction. He tried to enlist in the Marines but was rejected because of the conviction.

— John Dix Nock III, 72, of St. Augustine, Florida. Nock pleaded guilty to using his property as a grow house for marijuana 27 years ago. He didn’t cultivate the plants, but he got six months of community confinement. He now operates a general contracting business.

— Gary Parks Davis, 66, of Yuma, Arizona. When Davis was 22, he admitted to using a telephone for a cocaine transaction. He served a six-month sentence on nights and weekends in a county jail and completed probation in 1981. After the offense, the White House says, Davis earned a college degree and worked steadily, including owning a landscaping business and managing construction projects. He has volunteered at his children’s high school and in his community.

— Edward Lincoln De Coito III, 50, of Dublin, California. De Coito pleaded guilty at age 23 to being involved in a marijuana trafficking conspiracy. He was released from prison in December 2000 after serving nearly two years. Before the offense, De Coito had served honorably in the U.S. Army and the Army Reserves and had received numerous awards.

— Vincente Ray Flores, 37, of Winters, California. As a 19-year-old, Flores consumed ecstasy and alcohol while serving in the Air Force, later pleading guilty at a special court-martial. He was sentenced to four months of confinement, loss of $2,800 in pay and a reduction in rank. Flores participated in a six-month rehab program that gives select enlisted offenders a chance to return to duty after therapy and education. His reduction in rank was amended, and he remains on active duty, earning medals and other awards for his service.

Perhaps Biden is trying to show that people convicted of crimes deserve a second chance so that a future president will pardon him after he is found guilty for the myriad of crimes he’s committed with his son and other family members while serving as vice president of the United States.
