Outgoing Governor Issues Nearly 300 PardonsJACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour granted pardons or early release to dozens of state prisoners, including 29 convicted of murder, manslaughter or homicide, in his final days in office.
Complete list of releases, with crimes (check out the seriousness of some): http://wlbt.images.worldnow.com/imag...ourPardons.pdf
It has always been customary for an outgoing governor to pardon a few inmates at the end of his final term but this is causing quite an outrage down here.
Opinions? Does this happen where you are?
I think it's flat wrong for many of these and I can't for the life of me figure out what happened here. It almost makes you wonder if pardons were being sold.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

As our last governor spent his last while in office pardoning himself for running off to Argentina while claiming to be hiking the Appalachian Trail, he didn't do much else.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

Must be planning on running for senate.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Actually, the out cry about this has me pleasantly surprised. I figured it would be the same old story : liberals, liberals, liberals, liberals... but actually hearing some out cry in the news.... gives me a little hope now.Arm the sheep!
