I hope the new President will appoint a Pardon Counsel with instructions to pro-actively seek out people who got screwed by the system and don’t belong behind bars. With 180,000 Federal prisoners, it’s hard to believe that there aren’t at least a few thousand who don’t belong there: either cases of actual innocence, or cases in which the guildeline or mandatory sentence was grossly disproportionate.
Update Turns out the pardon wasn’t actually a done deal: the President sends a list to the Pardon Counsel to draw up the paperwork. Now that there’s been a fuss in the papers, the Prez has changed his mind.
