Convicted Murderer Freed 2 Weeks After Parole Denied
This is why the death penalty works. Maybe it doesn't deter others from committing similar crimes. But it definitely ensures idiots like Barbour don't ignorantly set them free.
Department of Corrections officials say that David Gatlin, 40, was released on Sunday after being pardoned by Barbour, who leaves office on Tuesday. Gatlin, who has worked as a trustee at the governor's mansion, was denied parole less than two weeks ago.
It's not the first time Haley Barbour released convicted killers. All these killers should have been put to death.
