Another Round Of Presidential Pardons And Guess Who Didn't Make The List?
Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
Bush pardons man who helped Israel during wartime - Yahoo! News
Now I don't know the whole story behind this, but if it was a good shoot and they tried to conceal it, then they deserve to be in prison in my opinion. If it was a bad shoot and they tried to conceal it, then they deserve to be treated like any other dog that's gone bad. Again, I don't know the whole story and haven't looked into it.
Well-known names were not on Bush's holiday pardon list. There have been efforts to get Bush to pardon former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards, who was convicted in 2000 with four others in a scheme to rig riverboat casino licensing; disgraced track star Marion Jones, who lied about using steroids; Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, former U.S. Border Patrol agents who were convicted of shooting a drug smuggler in 2005 and trying to cover it up; and Michael Milken, junk bond king who was convicted of securities fraud.
restsupt, you got it exactly right
Yup, they didn't shoot an alter boy. Maybe they did stuff they shouldn't have done, but enough is enough. W should commute the sentence if he can't bring himself to give a pardon.
