Bush's Pardons

An article by Debra Saunders in the San Francisco Chronicle about President Bush and his use of pardons. From the article:

For years now, I've been writing about Clarence Aaron, a first-time nonviolent offender who, because he facilitated two large cocaine deals between two drug dealers, was sentenced to life without parole. At age 19, Chrissy Taylor was sentenced to 19 years in prison for buying legal drugs for her boyfriend's illegal drug operation.
Bush should commute the sentences of Aaron and Taylor so that they can become productive members of society.

It's an interesting article because Saunders talks about how Bush has used his pardons and how there are plenty of people serving extremely long prison sentences, which she argues should be shortened.
