BUT.....amidst all the Simcha, we should still remember that he still commited a crime and we should not be dancing in the streets like a POW was just released. It just doesnít look right. Turning SMR into a Hero isnít the right message to be giving over  to our children and the world as a whole.
Glad I didn't say this.  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

As someone who davened 3x a day for many years and wrote letters, lobbied politicians etc., I could not be happier.

Don't want to make this thread into a popcorn thread, but I can almost certainly promise you that you also committed the same horrible crime on a credit card application. It's people like you why moshiach isn't here yet, because you are politically correct.

Was waiting for someone to post that. Talk to some of the people who were involved day in and day out for years. Blood, sweat and tears. They are saying the exact same thing. He was found guilty by the court of law and bh commuted (not pardoned). We donít need to make parades and dance in the streets. Open up a tehillim and thank Hashem for this wonderful gift.

As someone who only mentioned him in my prayers about once a week, I totally disagree.
We are celebrating that he doesn't have to sit another 20 years, which would have been unjust compared to his crimes.

When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

Oh and if you want to really thank someone for making this happen, drive down to Livingston, NJ. The real hero of this story resides there.

It's not like he tried to burn down a house with a family sleeping inside.

It was going to be one even before this. It will now be a full house all-nighter.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm sure you did the most you can to free him but you make no sense. We all agree he committed a crime. If he would be sitting 5 years no one would talk about this and when he would be released there would be no one dancing in the streets. We are all celebrating because he was commuted from a sentence he didn't deserve. Nothing hard to understand. Stop with the non sense.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Not at all. Just guessed that from what you said. Can you explain who the hero from Livingston is?
