So, Haley Barbour has praised segregationists and now, to make up for it politically, he
pardons suspends the life sentence of two (conveniently black) sisters who were obviously – by any standards – set up and wrongfully imprisoned. (The people who admitted to the crime and now say the sisters were not there at all, got just a couple years and are free.)
Barbour has pardoned murderers who were known beyond any shadow of a doubt to be guilty. Mostly those who killed women they supposedly loved. I don’t know how anyone can look at Barbour’s record on this and not be completely enraged.
So, why Suspend the Sentence now? Its costing Mississippi too much money to keep them locked up!
In a statement, Barbour said, “the Mississippi Department of Corrections believes the sisters no longer pose a threat to society. Their incarceration is no longer necessary for public safety or rehabilitation, and Jamie Scott’s medical condition creates a substantial cost to the State of Mississippi.”
The other sister MUST give one of her kidneys to her sick sister in order to be released.
Seriously, people!?!?! You want THIS sorry example of a human being to run for President??
