Obama reduces Chicago gang "governor" Fat Eric's sentence
Governor Wilson was serving a life sentence for drug crimes. G-D governors such as Wilson, at least in the 1990s, had hundreds of thugs reporting to him. He was sent away in 1998, Obama commuted Wilson's life sentence to 35 years.
Former Black Panther Bobby Rush, a congressman from Chicago's South Side whose district covers much of the base of the Gangster Disciples, wrote a letter to Obama where he declared that Fat Eric deserved a break because of his "extraordinary rehabilitative efforts."
Chicago suffered nearly 800 murders last year--most of them were tied to gangs such as the Gangster Disciples.
Obama's action is another example of what Mayor Rahm Emanuel calls "Chicago values."
