Nine Obama Pardons Mock Equity and Justice - by Stephen Lendman
After the annual Thanksgiving Day turkey "pardoning" travesty, Obama granted nine executive pardons, a December 3 White House press release announcing them by name, date of sentencing, and offense committed.
They date from Russell James Dixon's June 23, 1960 two years probation for a felony liquor law violation to Scoey Lathaniel Morris' May 21, 1999 three years probation and $1,200 restitution for passing counterfeit obligations or securities.
The others were for:
-- minor illicit drug related charges;
-- illegal possession of government property;
-- conspiracy to defraud the US by making false statements to the FDA;
-- mutilation of coins;
