Bill Richardson Tackles The Pressing Question Of Whether Or Not To Pardon Billy the Kid
— Ace

Yes, that Billy the Kid. The one killed by Pat Garrett in 1881.

The fat, grope-y governor who may be under consideration for Secretary of State (or not) is a Billy the Kid buff (they have so much in common, one with the rustlin' and shootin', the other with the gorgin' and gropin'), so he's spending his last few days of office considering a pardon for a dead man.

The article, though, is sorta neat, if you like Old West stuff. Pat Garrett's family is trying to protect Garrett's status as Good Guy, so they're the principle lobbyists against a pardon.

On the other side of things is Emilio Estavez. I'd imagine.

1 Well, at least it's essentially harmless. Richardson could do many worse things during his last few days in office.

2 Actually, go to Lincoln County, NM sometime- they have a Lincoln County Wars trail- you can go to all the major sites of the LCW, and they have little micro museums in each one.  It's fascinating, really.

That Billy the Kid was not "our kind of person*" is really without doubt- but he, and the other Regulators, were actually the "good guys" (if anyone in the Lincoln County Wars could claim that label) in that particular situation.

He was just a good-guy with no particular respect for human life.

*- As understood by polite society.  He'd probably fit right in here at the HQ.

By then he was "Marshall" Pat Garrett.  Or, rather, had been- he'd "retired" before he shot Billy the Kid.

And, most people in the area believe he did it over a girl, not because he thought Billy was some kind of menace.

29 I'll tell you who they should pardon, Alfred Packer.  Sure, he killed and ate five people but his conviction was unfair.  At sentencing, the judge said, "Stand up, Alferd Packer, you voracious, man-eating, son-of-a-bitch. There were seven Democrats in Hinsdale County, and you ate five of them."  If killing and eating Democrats is wrong, I don't want to be right.

P.S.  Interesting facts about Hinsdale County.  It has a year around population of 700 but if you add the snow birds in it comes to maybe 3000.  At their last election, the winning sheriff ran with the slogan,  "Your first DUI is on me."  Hinsdale is in my jurisdiction but I have never tried a case there.  They have the occasional crime there but I have never had a sex crime there.  I thought I would get my first the other day when I got a police report for soliciting for child prostitution.  Turned out it was just a couple of teenager texting each other and, in the midst of other moronic stuff, the guy asked the girl what she would charge.  Her parents found out and threw a fit.  Guy claims he was just joking and, in context, I think that a jury would think that he was.  So I declined prosecution.

In other news, I have tried several cases in Gunnison County where Packer was eventually tried and convicted.  The jury on my cases sat in the very chairs where the Packer jurors sat.

okay, Vick should be shunned for the same reason the Lockerbie bomber should be rotting in jail -- some people a) deserve no clemency, and b) can never be redeemed.

I'm talking about man's law and man's will, not God's.

If Mike Vick was truly remorseful, why hasn't he punished himself? For instance, banning himself from the game, or donating his salary to charity?

Spending 24 months in jail does not equal redemption. He might've paid his debt to society, but that doesn't mean he has a clean slate. It means he can walk around a free man.

The evil done by Mike Vick did not simply go away because he spent two years in Kansas. He still has to pay a price. And I don't buy that innoncent-shit-eating grin of his, either

Animals have to be slaughtered quickly, both for regulatory reasons and for economic ones.

What was Vick's excuse for the things he did to dogs?

So...yeah, I guess I'll throw a hissy fit. Sue me.

No offense, but I'm over the redemption talk.

Forget that.

Let his [continuous] acts speak for themselves --

- he had no problem electrocuting these animals

- dogs that weren't capable of fighting up to their standards were hung, drowned, or slammed into the ground

- for fighting purposes, dogs were starved so that they were more hungry to fight

There's no right to redemption in this country.

Some people just don't or should not count. Society should dictate that.

103 I've been at cocktail parties where "civilized" folk were standing around conversing, and someone mentions their kitty, and an asshole (or three) mentions he hates cats, and how he and his brothers used to tie them by their tails across a line and watch them claw themselves nearly to death.  And there's more that I won't go into.  My husband has family members who love dogs, but have said to us, "Don't let your cats near me.  I can't be responsible for what I might do.  Hahahahahah."

117 Not only that Steph, good hunters feed the dogs before they go into the transport box to go home.

128 There seems to be a split between people that see Vick's acts as monstrous and some that take the attitude that his victims "were just dogs" and therefore it doesn't matter. Let's be clear: VICK derived his sadistic pleasure from torturing those dogs imagining he was inflicting great pain on defenseless creatures that felt pain and fear every bit as any human. He probably got a freaking hardon doing it, thinking that. I happen to believe he was probably quite right; and I also believe God's creatures all deserve a certain fundamental respect. Society holds people that tear the wings off of flies with contempt. How much lower was Vick, for doing what he did?

Posted by: CoolCzech at December 29, 2010 03:25 PM (tJjm/)

129 I never thought that he would get a second change when he admitted to what he had done.  The public would have been far more forgiving had he killed a human or two.  I can't believe that this is the same guy who some are now praising as a hero.  Times have changed I guess.

"Vick, who is still under the supervision of a bankruptcy court, gave his fiancee a $90,000 Porsche for her birthday, TMZ reported Thursday. The Porsche Panerama was given to Kijafa Frink at a private event at a Philly nightclub..."

Vick declared bankruptcy in 2008, shortly before he pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting charges, and is now under a budget outlined in a court-approved "reorganization plan" to repay creditors.

Vick, who will be a free agent after this season, made $1.6 million last season and is earning $5.25 million this season. He is expected to receive another big contract in free agency on the heels of his resurgent 2010 season, in which he has amassed 17 passing and seven rushing touchdowns.

The Eagles are heading into a crucial road game Sunday against the Giants to determine first place in the NFC East.

He was ultimately selected by the Kansas City A's, and was proud of this accomplishment until later in life.  Governor Richardson remains a friend and confident of John Kerry, D-Catsup who has repetitively lied about his Vietnam service.  Lying is a democrat family value.

159 coolczech@139  Well, I survived Christmas in the home of the Life Coach. 

My sister called yesterday to inform me her best friend, a stunning Cuban-American beauty from Miami, with an amazing career, who was just in our home three months ago, and we loved her effervescent personality, attempted suicide Christmas day and is on life support.  Her liver is destroyed, and her brain is swelling.  OD'd on Darvocet she bought from a dealer.  She's been threatening off and on to kill herself for years.  My sister called her friend's doc and told him and he didn't believe her.

Eight years ago, my sister's other best friend, also a Cubano, had a disturbed older daughter with a drug problem.  Finally, they felt the girl had overcome her demons.  One afternoon the mom, her younger daughter, and the 20 year-old, spent the afternoon making cookies.  Suddenly, with a beaming smile, the older daughter opened the door to the balcony, and smiling at her mom and little sister, jumped off the 22 floor balcony.

My poor sister has had enough.  I'm heart-broken for her.

186 185 Man steals Nintendo Gameboy and games from a young kid. The kid just happened to be in a casket. And dead, because it was at his wake. I didn't hear him complain.

Or just the normal libtard inadequacy of failing to see what's right in front of their nose... Reality.

188 Even a cursory review of the facts shows Billy the Kid was a cop-killing psychopath. All of this nonsense about him being some kind of romantic figure gets under the skin. What in hell is Richardson thinking? Speaking of Billy the Kid, I am still completely baffled by the Bob Dylan character of 'Alias' in that Kris Kristofferson Billy the Kid movie back in the early Seventies. What in hell was Dylan thinking?

190 I just noticed that my hash changes anytime I reset the wireless router.  I guess my lifelong ambition of becoming a top ten commenter will go unrealized.

Yeah, it's kind of annoying. 

Keep resetting it until you get something cool.  Preferably something pornographic like (SukMe1).

Despite what you may think, all the fame, the prestige, the moronettes throwing themselves at you... none of it matters. It's Lonely at The Top.

lol. 

I'm getting kind of used to my IDL9.  I am somewhat "idle" (thank you Barack Obama and the state of California).  With luck, that'll change next year.

Was an academic scientist (biophysics, basically), tenure-track faculty with funding but I got fed up with academe. Switched careers to non-profit fundraising (higher ed).  Was doing fine, but got screwed up when I relocated to California just as the higher ed job market tanked. 

'Trying to take my time and really find the right situation in Utah.  I may go back into science in some capacity or continue with non-profit administration/fundraising.  It's a little awkward as we're still new here and we're renting a house well south of where we'll probably end up.  Ideally, I'd like to stall until we move b/c we'd probably be shooting distance of Salt Lake which would open up many more job options.

This is just par for the course for Richardson, who, as UN ambassador, thought it was his responsibility to advise people on investing.  He came up with the brilliant idea in '98 to tell Americans that the Asian market had stabilized and that they should start investing in it.  Then the Asian market fell through the floor (again) and Richardson was out of the UN and off to cause damage at DoE.  Interesintgly, RIchardson's investment ideas, as part of the UN (WTF?) disappeared and have never been heard of again.  It's a shame that the retard didn't follow the path of his stupid advice.

Richardson is another one of these people who is really, really stupid and yet he keeps getting given responsibilities and powers of all sorts, in addition to winning this election by the same idiot voters who have foisted McShame on America over and over.

Yep, me too.   Lots of people I grew up with & my family had hunting dogs.  None ever did that.

206 No joke. I'm predicting that Obama will pardon every last leftist "political prisoner"  during his last hours in office (whenever they may be). I mean Mumia, Ayers, Chesimard, Peltier......everyone except Jonathan Pollard. Is that crazy? Come on, that probably the ultimate Constitutional power that the Prez has...there is no recourse to a Presidential Pardon. And Obama is such a spiteful dick that he would sign those pardons with pleasure.

The problem was not sending him, it was letting him come back.  Kim Jong Bill would fit right in.
