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.
I am more inclined not to punish those who come home alive, vs. glorifying those who should have done the same thing as Vela, but came home in a box instead. There’s the media version, and then there’s the truth. You made your choice already.
Pardon for the shooting (which just happens in war), and keep the portion of the sentence related to lying, with time served as punishment.
“Id be inclined to support this young mans 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 ?!!
There’s a huge difference between what he was convicted of and what he actually did. You should read a little more on his case.
