    Will the WM3 ever be pardoned?

    Do you think the WM3 will ever be pardoned by the State of Arkansas or the President? Any President after Obama?

    Was thinking about this today and I know Gov. Mike BeeBe won't grant one unless, according to him they show compelling evidence they didn't do it. Which shows which side he is on, imo. So by the time they are done with their unsupervised probation Mike won't even be Gov. anymore. In fact long before the probation is over with he won't even be Gov.
    It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

    I'm not going to attempt to predict the future, but I do know that they can't be given a Presidential pardon. Those can only be given to people convicted of a federal crime, so the WM3 wouldn't be eligible for one.

    You're right about the President. I'm half a sleep right now. I'm going to say they won't be pardoned because if the State admits they were wrong then that brings on all kinds of things.

    Considering all the new information that just came out (new witnesses and fiber matches), I don't think they'll be pardoned; I think they'll be exonerated.

    I hope you're right, because it'll be a cold day in Hell before any Arkansas governor pardons Echols, Baldwin or Misskelley. Look at how hot passions still run among those who believe those young men to be guilty.

    There's no way a politician is going to take on that rage, particularly not when the men in question are already out of prison.

    And yet the Governor of Mississippi can hand out pardons willy nilly to any prisoner who's mowed his lawn. Seems crazy to me.

    Yep, Nova you are so right. Gov. Beebe has already went on record saying he won't pardon them unless someone else is convicted. I also think that Gov. Beebe doesn't want to have the reputation that former Gov. Mike Huckabee has, since Huckabee pardoned the man who went to Washington state and killed four police officers. I am not saying that Echols, Baldwin, or Misskelley would go kill anyone, I am just saying Gov. Beebe isn't going to be put in that position. I hope that makes sense....LOL

    As for the governor of Mississippi, I have no idea what he was thinking!!!!

    i believe they will NEVER be pardoned OR exonerated. and personally, i believe that is correct. IMO, they belong back behind bars.

    Ellington is asking for more information before he makes a decision. I just don't know if he got the fiber results or if that testing came back after they originally sent him the package. Again, time will tell. I hate this waiting game, but I have no choice. I'm hopeful that, when Ellington gets all the information, he'll reopen the case and investigate Terry Hobbs.

    I don't think Gov. Beebe will pardon the WMFree until someone else is convicted and behind bars, no matter what Ellington recommends. But, I am hopeful that Ellington will do the right thing and at least investigates Terry Hobbs. We can be hopeful, right???

    After their ten years of unsupervised probation. Beebe won't even be Governor anymore. So it will be curious on what the next Gov says, but of course by then someone else could be convicted for the crimes. Which is a possibility.

    I will go so far as to say that someone else being convicted is a probability. I just hope it doesn't take another 18 years!

    I am hopeful that they won't have to serve their whole ten year probation sentence. I hope that someone else is convicted long before then!
