On January 9, 2012 Republican Governer Haley Barbour pardoned 214 convicted criminals from prison. Some of these men were killers, others were rapist; but today all are now free men. What has happened here? Are they really reformed? Should they be free?
At the very least the families of the victims should have been notified of the pending releases. Are they really reformed? Who knows, but I can't imagine killers and rapists under any circumstances being released.
Felons, not just lawbreakers. No. He had no right to take the law into his own hands. If he wants to pardon people he should apply for a job on the prison review board or whatever it is where people up for parole get reviewed.
Did she cite a reason that you aren't presenting so that you can bias us from the beginning against her actions?
Um, I just put down what the news said. So, I am presenting the same thing that is on any news station. I don't have an opinion either way.
Well this is really bad reporting then, people need more information to make a decision, for example they could have all been one week away from release or there could be several mass murderers in there.
So, he gave absolutely no reason for doing this? And if he did, it wasn't reported in the news?
Or, did you casually NOT include the information?
Why don't you do your own research and figure this one out for yourself.? Or, do you just like to shoot down topic's and Hub's that don't fit in with your point of view? You are nothing more than a serial troll on Hubpages. Funny how you tell everyone on here to think for themselves, when you yourself can't figure anything out unless Ron tell you what and how to think. Evan, you didn't even know that this GOV. was a man!! GIVE IT UP!!
Because you're the biased person who put up the post.
I didn't care about it until I saw your forum topic. I'm merely pointing out that you should have included the other opinion.
How is he biased? Also, from reading your above post, how did you point out that he should have included another opinion? I just got here, but your ranting does seam a little strange. Sorry if I have offended you.
Unless you are prepared to dig into every case you are really just saying criminals never deserve a second chance.
A sorry business, but it is the way its been done for years. Barbor seems to have gotten a little carried away.
The only reason why a prisoner should be pardoned is if he or she was wrongfully convicted, not just heause they worked at the Governor's Mansion.
