Pardon me, sir

As one of their last acts in office, Governors have often pardon prisoners whom they feel have “served their time.” Check out this ARTICLE on Mississippi’s former Governor Haley Barber recently pardoned a slew (that’s a southern term) of prisoners, including 14 who were sentenced for murder. The State of Mississippi has filed for and rec’d an injunction on 4 of these pardons. For his part, former Governor Barber claims that the Mississippi Parole Board agreed with 90% of his pardons. The new governor does not (to say the least) agree with Barber’s decision.
