FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE — “The children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.”
President Obama on Thursday commuted the prison sentence of a man who was part of a crack-dealing gang that terrorized Chicago Heights, led by a kingpin who modeled himself after the Wesley Snipes character in the 1991 movie “New Jack City.”
Known as “the Organization,” the gang ran a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week crack distribution center throughout the 1990s in the Claude Court Housing Complex right across from Gavin Elementary School. The children were never allowed outside, according to federal authorities, to shield them from the armed dealers who lurked nearby.
Artrez Nyroby Seymour, 21 at the time of his arrest, was one of 29 associates snared and convicted in a joint crackdown by the DEA and Chicago Heights police in 2002.
Seymour is one of 58 drug dealers and smugglers freed by Obama in his latest “Let All the Drug Dealers Go” initiative. The media has largely avoided looking at the specific biographies of the latest recipients of his pro-crime benevolence. I will have a close look at them shortly. Until then, here are some prior greatest hits from Obama’s pro-crime push.
