Some non-Republican pardon discussion--Biden needs to pardon Leonard Peltier

so that he doesn't die in prison. Or at least clemency.

It is embarrassing that he is still in prison while Amnesty International is working to get him released. I thought for sure Clinton would pardon him. And then I was positive Obama would. Biden needs to do the right thing.

I taught some of his family and I think of him often, but all these assholes looking for pardons made me think about it again last night.

2. It's not surprising that Clinton didn't grant him clemency...

From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Peltier

Opponents of Peltier campaigned against his possible clemency; about 500 FBI agents and families protested outside the White House, and FBI director Louis Freeh sent a letter opposing Peltier's clemency to the White House. Clinton did not grant Peltier clemency.

5. With all due respect, fuck the FBI.

They pretty clearly framed him for this; they don't get to protest like they are all righteous.
