Two Scales of Justice- Libby Versus the Average Shmo

I looked up the president's ability to commute sentences and saw this.

The President's clemency power includes the authority to commute, or reduce, a sentence imposed upon conviction of a federal offense, including the authority to remit, or reduce, the amount of a fine or restitution order that has not already been paid. This form of clemency is different from a pardon after completion of sentence. Under the current regulations governing petitions for executive clemency, a person may not apply for a full pardon until at least five years after his or her release from incarceration. Accordingly, the commutation form should be used only for the purpose of seeking a reduction of sentence.

So. if this were ME, I'd have to have been serving time, unlike Libby who doesn't have to report for ANY jail time. Also, what do you bet Libby gets pardoned at the end of Idiot's presidency, but for ME I'd have to ASK five years after getting out of jail.

4. Completion of court challenges

Requests for commutation of a prison sentence generally are not accepted unless and until a person has begun serving that sentence. In addition, commutation requests are generally not accepted from a person who is currently challenging his or her conviction or sentence through appeal or other court proceeding. Accordingly, you should not complete and submit this petition until you have concluded all judicial challenges to your conviction and sentence and you have begun serving your sentence. You should also be aware that, in evaluating the merits of a commutation petition, clemency authorities take into consideration the amount of time the petitioner has already served and the availability of other remedies to secure the relief sought (such as parole or judicial action).

So, for ME, if I was appealing my case, I couldn't get my sentence reduced. But I am not Scooter Libby, who also was appealing HIS case, but he's a special criminal cronie of the Criminal-In-Chief. I am just SICK to DEATH of the two scales of justice in this country-you're either WITH the Criminal-In-Chief, ignoring justice, politicizing the justice department, thumbing your nose at the law and the constitution, taking away people's property, privatizing all government functions to reduce them to money-making ventures... or you're just Living Here Taking Up Space Until They Move Ya.
