"I’d be inclined to support this young man’s pardon if he had not planted a weapon on the person he accidently killed and then lied to investigators about it."

What a ridiculous remark. He should just trust his ENTIRE LIFE to the current political machine and our MORALLY IMPOTENT PRESIDENT ?!!

So, obstructing justice and lying to investigators is all right because he was a soldier and the president is a weakling? Not buying it. Like the previous poster, if it had been just the shooting (an accident of war, by all accounts) I would be in favor of a pardon, but pardoning him after this dishonorable behavior would send the message that military personnel are above such petty things as law and order. An idea made all the more frightening by the fact that law and order are the very things that the military is in place to protect. When the military is above the law, the result is a Banana Republic.
