One response to “Governors Should Take Pardons Seriously

  1. Taking pardons seriously requires recognizing what they are: forgiveness for a wrong done, the acceptance of which is an admission of guilt. That’s the law. It is not the responsibility of the executive branch to fix the mistakes of the judicial branch. If someone has been wrongfully convicted, it is the judicial branch’s obligation to correct it, and the judicial branch alone.
