Sound Off: Pardon reaction & legislation

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The pardons issued by former Governor Haley Barbour have been all over the news.

I really can't add anything to what has already been said.

The only opinion I have on pardons is for the legislature not to overreact on emotions and pass a bill that is not well thought out.

We have three branches of government, Legislative, Judicial and Executive.

There have been abuses by all three.

We need to have a checks and balances system.

There are pardons that are justified and we need to be very careful before we rush in and change the law.
