As the numbers grow in time who will there be that doesn’t know a registered sex offender directly or indirectly? This is a sweet and sour truth.

The appropriate official board recommended the pardon and the usual “suspects” are opposed. I say, grant the pardon and tell the usual suspects that it is time to emphasize rehabilitation and not lifetime punishment. The individual the governor wants to pardon can still make a contribution to society, and it is time to give him that opportunity.

Abuse of power…clearly.

It’s all about who you know and this illustrates that so well.

How about pardoning some of those accused of sex offenses who are innocent but had a terrible lawyer and took a plea as a result. I am sure that the Governor was ask by many in that situation BUT they were not personal friends of the Governor were they…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
