  1. Wait, are you kidding me?!?!?

    Offense: Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribution of a controlled substance (cocaine)

    Selling COCAINE will get you pardoned but LEGAL medical Marijuana leaves you in the slammer!??!

  2. And another one: Unlawful use of a communication facility to distribute cocaine

    It seems like Obama has a soft spot for blow pushers.

  3. Sorry to see that Hank Skinner was not pardoned from Texas Governor Rick Perry’s demonic Posse’s grasp..

    Rick Perry’s Texas obviously destroyed~lost the most crucial DNA evidence that Hank Skinner’s legal team had in possibly getting Mr. Skinner a new~fair criminal trial !

    The State of Texas just wants the rest of sane America to look the other way while they execute a possible innocent Hank Skinner !

    The Texas Rick Perry Demon’s were previously forced by the U.S. Supreme Court to offer Hank Skinner an opportunity to prove his non~ guilt through DNA testing.

    Sadly,these Texas demonic mentalities now have found a way to avoid following the Federal Court oversight orders simply by making the crucial Hank Skinner DNA evidence that could have possibly exonerate Mr.Skinner become lost~destroyed !
