Trump Pardon or Commutation Prediction: Justin Volpe and Charles Schwartz

One of the more shocking pardons or commutations in the coming weeks will be for Justin Volpe, the former NYPD cop who attacked Abner Louima while he was in custody in 1997. Volpe took a plea deal and was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison. Several other police officers were also convicted of other charges, including, famously, Charles Schwartz.

Volpe is currently serving time in a federal prison, and is not scheduled for release until 2025. I predict that Trump will at the very least commute his sentence and set him free, effective immediately. He may also officially pardon Charles Schwartz for his perjury charge, which was a federal conviction.

Both moves would be extremely popular among the NYPD, who have always supported Schwartz, and who have less publicly supported Volpe's requests for sentencing relief.

3. They are too low in the pecking order

 

Plus there is nothing in it for Trump. There is no political benefit after losing the election either.

Trump will only help those who can spill the beans on him - like Manafort or Ghislaine Maxwell.

5. He loves people who commit horrific crimes

against the vulnerable. Bad cops and military men who commit war crimes are his favorite.

4. I assume Trump will be selling pardons on his way out the door.

If someone doesn't have the money they won't get the pardon.

7. Volpe is human filth. Schwartz shouldn't get any relief, if he has been released.

Schwartz needs to have that felony charge hanging over him for the rest of his life.

Fuck those racist cops.

8. Schwartz works for NYCHA and makes $114,000 a year

Soft landing for that ex-con, I guess.
