No Apologies Necessary

Hot off the wire from CNN:

In his last days in office, outgoing Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour pardoned two men convicted of murder, a state official said Monday…

OMG, is it possible I’ve been wrong about Haley Barbour all these years? Is it possible he’s not a complete, top-to-bottom, front-to-back vicious asshole? Could he really be correcting some hideous miscarriage of justice? Nah—

Both men, according to the affiliates, were working as trusties at the governor's mansion.

I would imagine killing people is much easier if you don't know them? Just guessing, although I have no use for the scum bag.

It's up to four now; details at the link below. The two new murderers were also trusties at the governor's mansion. Somebody's got to stop this guy before he pardons again.

i consider the death penalty murder, most civilized countries have gone past that and in fact, consider it as a "hideous miscarriage of justice" in itself and on its on merits. I could go on but..

oops, pardon me, not about the death penalty, I get it now. My bad. Our prisons are full of people who shouldn't be there, We have 5% of the world's population and 25 percent of it's prison population, but he managed to find some of the worst that should be there to turn loose. I did say he was a scum bag.

I bet they weren't, Bendra. Whoever heard of a "house whitey?"
