Our President issues pardons today.
When I saw the headline that he ran out some pardons and “commuted the prison sentences of two others”, I tried really hard to not anticipate a best-case.
WASHINGTON (AP) – President George W. Bush has granted pardons to 14 individuals and commuted the prison sentences of two others convicted of misdeeds ranging from drug offenses to tax evasion, from wildlife violations to bank embezzlement, The Associated Press learned Monday.
The new round of White House pardons are Bush’s first since March and come less than two months before he will end his presidency. The crimes committed by those on the list also include offenses involving hazardous waste, food stamps, and the theft of government property.
And the absolute political imprisonment of Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean continues.
I’m beyond incensed.
As Americans dedicated to honoring those who uphold the law and protect our country, how can we get some real pressure on President Bush to pardon Ramos and Compean before he leaves office ?
