    Whatever. I'm tired of these people trying to make it seem like they care, once it's too late to actually do anything about it. This is getting really old and I doubt if anyone is fooled by this crap anymore. I'm glad she shot that dude and I hope he didn't die right away.

    I agree. Pardoning her now does nothing for her.

    what "war on terrorism"?

    the last of that knight family (seems like i've heard this name in connection with other klan atrocities) must have died off.

    included in my condolences to her family, i'd like to hope that they go after all the folks that let this stand!

    `course everybody is gonna talk about "lettin it slide since they actually did finally pardon her, and that's a good thing, right?" ... and then the next one comes out in the news and we let that one go too ...

    when is the war on terrorism going to target the real terrorists? that "kronig kirche kinder" bunch! ("sick church kids" auf deutsch) aka kkk

    Peace to Mrs. Baker's descendants!

    smh

    I saw this story and it pissed me off. No matter what they do to try and make this right, it wont bring this lady back. She lost her life because she was trying to protect it. Protecting your life is a God given right....period! RIP

    To late to make peace.

    For the die is cast for those who wrong.
    These dark days are scaring them and they
    want to feel some good vibes.

    But good vibes should have been started
    hundreds of years ago.

    Terrorism has America in our position.
    To not know when nor how your enemy will come.
    But fearing he is destined to do so.

    He wears a hood like the one you adored.
    But his is black.

    Are you scared now! :run:

    This is why I'm anti-death penalty:

    1) The death penalty is disprorportionally handed down to Blacks.

    2) Innocent people have been executed.

    3) Only God has the right to take life; not the jury, not the judge and not the state. Last time I checked the jury, judge and state weren't God.
