Tonight on "The Kelly File," Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted to President Obama ordering the release of thousands of imprisoned drug convicts.

Judge Napolitano told Megyn Kelly that he believes the president is using federal resources in an appropriate way, since jail cells should be filled by more dangerous criminals.

"If violence is involved, they are not appropriate candidates for early release," Judge Napolitano said.

He explained that jail is not the appropriate place for an addict who will harm only himself.

"Jail is the place for someone who has harmed others and cannot enjoy the freedom the rest of us are born with."
