    The only reason he and others received the sentences they received was because at the time Plano, Tx had an issue with many kids in their communities overdosing on heroin and it was brought to the attention of the country which caused the certain people to take action and make examples

    50 of these parolees have gun offenses on their record. How can anyone call them non-violent?

    This bitch, a prisoners rights activist, talks about the poor dope dealers stuck in there, forever, for non-violent crimes.  Like conspiracy, where the young kid just made the hook up between a couple dudes.  Don't mention the crimes that are committed in support of the labor structure that is necessary to facilitate pick-up and delivery, and everything that happens to complete the deal.  Like people getting beat down and sometimes even killed.  That is why the conspiracy laws in this country are written the way they are (all of that is considered).  I'm not saying that I agree with the harshness of some of the sentencing, I'm saying that people who committed these crimes knew what they were doing and knew what was at stake.  So go boo-whoo somewhere else where it is warranted!!!!

    He sold drugs from the time he was a teenager. The type of drug is irrelevant. He apparently had a record from the get go. He will be back behind bars within the year. Product of your environment my ass. People make choices and all choices have consequence.

    Drugs are not as bad as those that criminalize it, no where near as bad as those that abuse and victimize people using the drugs as a means of justification and exploitation.  On one end you have government working with corporations wheeling and deal 100's of billions of dollars worth of government approved drugs that are worse than the illegal ones, its a nice gigantic network foundation where those who are partnered with gov. stand to hold monopolies on the drugs business. On the other side we have the poor and those benefiting the least from the drug game getting swallowed whole, either get caught up in heavy drug use, black market competitions ,or slammed by the government so they can keep the weasels out of the money they stand to make through the healthcare system,and doctors, it's no coincidence that what they decide to scrutinize benefits their approved drug deals.

    A moral reaction for a someone indulging in drugs or trying to make money on the black market with them, is to feel cheated and angry. But here we have stockholm syndrome. He doesn't care how fucked up he has been done because he knows they could have very well just left it unchanged, so he is grateful that his rapist captures set him free for a bit.

    Under his leadership(George Bush), Texas executed 152 prisoners, more than any other governor in modern American history; critics such as Helen Prejean argue that he failed to give serious consideration to clemency requests.[4]
    During his tenure, Bush presided over more executions of death row inmates than any other Governor in the history of Texas so far, surpassed only by his successor Rick Perry (Governor since 2000). The rate averages an execution in the state every nine days.[5] The only death penalty case among the 153 that came across George W. Bush's desk in his tenure as Texas Governor in which Governor Bush intervened and commuted the death sentence was that of serial killer Henry Lee Lucas. Under Texas law, however, the governor only has power to commute the sentence if the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles
    first recommends commutation or pardon; Bush's only option for the vast majority of the death penalty cases was to offer a one-time, non-renewable 30 day reprieve from execution.[6]
    your a very lucky man I got family from Texas and I wouldn't want to be black and in trouble down their

    I'm sure that hordes of apple-pie middle-'murica conservative types are screaming to the rafters with their blood boiling and near red with rage and fury that this fellows sentence have been commuted by this president..

    There are lots of folks that are ragin mad that this fellow isnt locked under an deep dark dank 'beat-em-down-and-rape-em-regular abyss of a prison for all eternity..
    American justice is funny that way.. Some folk are truly unforgiving or indifferent to unjust sentencing..

    life without the possibility of parole was absurd and cruel beyond reason for this crime.. Dues are paid, lesson learned (presumably). Caging non-violent humans for a lifetime is itself inhumane…

    Congrats to this fellow, use the opportunity to walk clean and appreciative of your new found freedom..

    Democracy under the name of justice send him to jail and the same democracy commuting his senstance. Whats the sense? Do we really need democracy? when its enforce by libertarian and Marxists?.

    If this was a white guy he'd be out after 6 months, but since  Jason Hernandez is black, and in Texas, than you get no justice but racist bigots deciding on your future (referring to judges and prosecutors). For drug offence he got life without parole, you'd think he murdered 3 people for that, and not sold 50 grams of narcotics.
