New Mexico: Bored or Drumming up Tourism?

Posted: December 31, 2010 in Uncategorized

What was the point?

MSN: In one of his last official acts — or non-acts — before leaving office, New Mexico’s governor refused to pardon the Old West outlaw Friday for one of the many murders he committed before he was gunned down in 1881.

Certainly because there was nothing else going on in the state of New Mexico? Really, they must have been bored? Are there no other current pending prisoners to review? Are there no current legal, economic or other issues that they could have been paying attention to, vs a case that happened over a century ago?

Maybe they are trying to sir up some tourism? That is about the only possible point I can figure for deciding whether or not to pardon someone over a century later. This was just too bizarre and ridiculous not to share. Thank you for listening to me ramble.

    I wonder why Randi McGinn brought the petition in the first place. Does she have some interest in a Billy the Kid museum or something?

    I wonder how long before the truth will surface.. seriously there is no reason or benefit of a pardon, when the person has long since been dead. The only possible purpose is to drum up tourism.
