There's outrage over former Miss. Gov. Barbour's "crimes of passion" reasoning. CNN's Anderson Cooper reports.

    Giving the governor the right to pardon any person, for any type crime, is unconstitutional. When an individual is found guilty by a court of law (judge/jury) that sentence should be served in it's entirety! Haley Barbour is a damn idiot. of course these murderers should go back to prison. Also, the criminal who did not obey the judge's order to turn himself in after the pardon should get another twenty to thirty years tacked on to his life sentence. Haley Barbour should be admitted to a mental hospital. In this outrageous abuse of the justice system the families of the victims are the only people that deserve to be heard! These families want justice for their loved ones that were MURDERED.
