Criminal whose sentence was commuted by Obama is back in prison


Fortunately no one was hurt by this man during his car chase.

From NY Post: A Texas man whose life sentence on drug charges was commuted by former President Obama is back behind bars after cops caught him with more than two pounds of cocaine following a high-speed chase, according to a report.

Robert M. Gill, 68, had been imprisoned in 1990 for cocaine and heroin distribution before Obama set him free along with other non-violent federal inmates in 2015, the San Antonio Express News reported. During his eight years in office, Obama commuted 1,715 prison sentences, more than any other president.

Last Thursday, according to federal court papers, Gill met with his probation officers and then went to the parking lot of a food market to buy more than 2 pounds of cocaine. Gill met a person who gave him a black backpack that he placed in his vehicle, and a sheriff’s deputy in an unmarked car tried to stop him, the affidavit said.

But Gill took off and after a high-speed chase collided with another vehicle where deputies were able to disable his car. Officers found the cocaine in the backpack and put him under arrest, the affidavit said.

Gill “related that he was going to sell the cocaine to make money and would be paying a female $26,000 for the cocaine,” the affidavit said.

“I’m so disappointed to hear that he got arrested again,” Ronald Schmidt, a lawyer who helped Gill appeal his life sentence in the courts, told the San Antonio newspaper.

In signing his release, Obama said he did so “because you have demonstrated the potential to turn your life around. … Now it is up to you to make the most of this opportunity.”

Gill’s prison warden also stood up for him, saying: “Robert has reformed and rehabilitated himself and poses no threat to the outside world.”

Gill has been charged with possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and was held without bail. He faces a return to prison for up to 40 years, if convicted.

  2. I’m all for jurisprudence and the right to a fair trial but the releasing of known criminals, before their sentences are fulfilled, is asinine; especially for a sitting president.

    That son of a jackal has more concern for criminals’ rights than that of their innocent victims’. Perhaps he, too, should be in the same cell. In fact, I insist on it.
    I can’t wait to see him in an orange jumpsuit, sharing a cell with his cohorts, in Gitmo.

    • dah! Thank you momof IV

      EVERY study of criminal law…be it minor or major offense…..comes up year after year after year….ad nauseum….of the same rates of recidivism….. decades of the same studies…decades of the same results…but, then, OBAMA lived in an alternative universe and tried to convince everyone else that miracles had occurred (the seas had receded, the sun had arisen …Athenian pillars had risen up beside him in tribute…yatta yatta) and that criminals had ACTUALLY CHANGED under his “powers.” I think this post is in the vanguard of disproving “His Divine-ness.”

      • you’ve hit a good point about obummer…his narcissism and ignorance drove him to believe those people had changed and because he thought so….then surely they must’ve changed….he is sickening.

  8. He should have moved to California, that way he wouldn’t even need to post bail!

  9. I’m no friend or supporter of Gill. But suffice it to say the “War on Drugs” has ruined more lives than the drugs themselves. If cocaine were legal, its strength and purity could be regulated, and it would be cheaper, to the point where the cartels would be severely impacted.
    I am not supporting Gill, but to those who know the real history of the Bush Family, they made a billion dollars off the distribution of crack cocaine into America’s streets. Just because they’re “establishment” does not excuse them.

  10. Well, at least this particular guy is back in the slammer, without his hurting somebody,..but some innocent people are going to die as a result, of Obama turning these guys loose.

    How often do we hear about some store clerk, or some pizza delivery guy, or some cop being shot, by, some thug [usually black] who is out on bail, or just recently paroled.?

    Which is not to say, that there are some people, in prison that are serving, unreasonably long sentences for, non-violent drug offences,..but the key word here is,..’NON-vioilent,.. I am guessing that this particular guy, had a criminal history, involving more than 1 criminal act.
    And I am , also, guessing that, those who were released by Obama’s early release program were mostly ,..wait for it,..mostly black, & most had several crimes on their records..
