Halfway Houses Are So Bad, Inmate Who Got Clemency Says "No Thanks (USA Today)When President Obamaannounced a program to grant executive clemency to drug offenders given long mandatory sentences, Arnold Ray Jones did what more than 29,000 federal inmates have done: He asked Obama for a presidential commutation.   And then, after it arrived on Aug. 3, he refused to accept it.  Jones’ turnabout highlights the strings that come attached to an increasing number of Obama’s commutations: In this case, enrollment in a residential drug treatment program — which has been a condition of 92 of Obama commutation grants.
