On the news now, President Bush has commuted the sentences of the 2 border agents Ramos and Compean. He has not fully pardoned them, but he has commuted their sentences. It's not fully finished yet so we don't know how long they will have to serve further...but they are going to get out of prison and will be considered as fully serving their debt to society.
I'm really pissed. They should be FULLY pardoned. They were doing their job, and the fact that Bush could fully pardon them and is choosing not to just makes me so irate. I'm glad they are getting some sort of "lighter" sentence but still. It's absolutely ridiculous that they are in there to begin with. Not to mention what they have already lost of their lives and families.
And why does the President wait until his last day in office to give these men, along with all the other people under consideration for pardon's, the attention they deserve? It's frustrating.

He will be gone tomorrow. We will all have Obama to bitch about then.
What the heck does that have to do with anything? This isn't a rant on a individual person, it's a vent on a specific current event.
