Pardon a Wrong Message to America?


The recent Scooter Libby pardon by President Bush has a lot of people wondering. Libby, who lied to a grand jury gets pardoned but people who commit petty crimes receive harsher punishment. The message many get from this is that once again the rich are able to weasel their way out of penalty. If a school teacher with no record from Florida committed this same crime, would he have been pardoned for being a "good guy"? It seems as though many Americans have lost their values over the years. Too many people lack the respect and dedication necessary to achieve anything in this world. As Americans we need to open our eyes and and address the many problems that lay before us.
