Four convicted killers were pardoned and freed by Haley Barbour, but he may have violated the state constitution. Anderson Cooper is Keeping Them Honest.
Dear Anderson, As a lifelong resident of Mississippi, I was particularly interested in your show last night. Rest assured that the majority of Mississippians (at least the ones I know) are outraged by the recent actions of Haley Barbour. Until Barbour's recent comments on crimes of passion, I had never heard such ridiculous logic as those who commit them are unlikely to do it again. Why let them out and give them the chance? And, I appreciate your guest who pointed out that yes, Mississippi is a changed place from what it was in the 1950s, 60s, 70s.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
