GOP Follies: Why did this governor pardon child rapists and brutal killers? (bribery)

Matt Bevin has horrified opponents and allies alike with a slew of ‘extreme pardons’ that also disproportionately benefited white offenders

Bevin's denies payoffs for pardons were bribes

In May 2014, Patrick Baker and two accomplices set out to rob a house in Knox county, Kentucky. Baker knew the hardest part of the home invasion would be getting past the front door, so he devised a plan to dress up as police officers conducting a routine investigation.

When Judge David Williams sentenced Baker in December 2017 to 19 years in prison for reckless homicide, burglary and impersonating a police officer, he said he would have given a longer punishment if he could. “I’ve been practicing law for 30-something years, and I’ve never seen a more compelling or complete case, the evidence was just overwhelming.”

Fast-forward just two years and Patrick Baker is a free man, released by Kentucky’s outgoing governor in act that has been dubbed “extreme pardon”. The brutal killing is just one of the extraordinary elements of the eleventh-hour move by Matt Bevin, a Republican in the Donald Trump mould who even by his own controversial record has astonished and angered his state with his pardons.

    The Pentagon’s Pedophile Task Force, consisting of 10,000 US Marines, in October staged a rescue of 2100 children from 5 bunkers under California of whom 100 died because of the abuse suffered while in confinement.
    They were kept in cages such as used in Veterinarians’ offices.
