President Obama on Tuesday commuted the sentence for Oscar López Rivera, who fought for Pureto Rican independence and has been imprisoned since 1981. Though he was due to serve 70 years, he will be released on May 17.
Rivera was born in Puerto Rico and lived in Chicago after serving in the Vietnam War, where he earned a Bronze Star but became disillusioned by American imperialism.
President Barack Obama had his audience in tears on Thursday when he surprised his Vice President and “brother” Joe Biden by awarding him the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction, something his three most recent successors reserved for Pope John Paul II, President Ronald Reagan and General Colin Powell.

During a Tuesday appearance on TODAY to promote his new Broadway musical A Bronx Tale, the 73-year-old actor was asked if he thinks the calls to oppose Friday’s inaugural events are “warranted.”
“Yeah, I think they are,” he told anchor Matt Lauer.
Jeffrey Slavin, the mayor of Somerset, Maryland, stirred up controversy in recent days after announcing he’d resign from the established Woodmont Country Club because other members did not want President Obama considered for membership. Some have speculated that the golf-loving outgoing president could set his sights on Woodmont after leaving the White House, but members of the predominantly Jewish club voiced opposition to the idea after Obama’s recent decision not to veto a U.
Five days before President Obama commuted Chelsea Manning’s prison sentence, WikiLeaks tweeted that the group’s editor-in-chief Julian Assange would agree to be extradited to the U. S. if Manning was given clemency.
Obama’s decision means Manning will be released in May instead of in 2045, when her sentence was originally due to end, the New York Times reports.
