This is particularly deplorable. Lt Clint Lorence was convicted based on the testimony of each of his platoon, not a single soldier testified in his defense. The guy is a complete psychopath by all accounts. His crimes include randomly shooting a schoolgirl in a group of girls to stabbing to death an unarmed civilian whilst the victim was being treated by an army medic. Some really fecked up crazy & evil shit. And then the president pardons and now he’s being presented as a hero on Fox.
I say no more pardons prior to any election run-ups!! At some point, people will get the impression that's it's a political tool.
