SAGINAW, Mich. A man recently pardoned by former President Barack Obama was shot and killed by two men with assault-style rifles.

It happened at 9:40 p.m. on Jan. 23, at Bannum Place Federal Corrections Halfway House in Saginaw.

Michigan State Police spokesperson Lt. David Kaiser told WNEM the two masked men barged into the building and shot 31-year-old Demarlon Thomas of Saginaw.

He was shot multiple times by one of the gunmen, while the other held roughly two dozen others at the home at gunpoint. Thomas died at the scene.

4. Mebbe. He was 31 and pleaded guilty in mid-2008. He would have been about 22 then.

The Operation Sunset indictments were about year earlier in the Fall of 2007, when he would have been about 21. So he's probably been in custody since he was 21 or 22. He had a year of college on an athletic scholarship after high school, probably his 18th and 19th years. He probably wasn't mixed up in much of anything as a high school athlete. So that gives him only two or three years to get in trouble after high school. At that age, and with his background, he couldn't have been a major dealer: he probably sold a few small bits to acquaintances. And who would hold a murderous grudge about that for eight or nine years? The big folk don't want the publicity. It could be a few people who suspect his commuted sentence was a pay-off for snitching. Or it could be a vigilante action

6. The gang background made him an easy target

 

Easy explanation...no questions asked.

It's a halfway house...dont people come and go at these places? Probably on authorities radar.

A gang could have grabbed him much more transparently.
