It seems the dynamic duo had their 'no days in jail' plan in play even before Associate Judge David Wiseman issued the one year, 30 day sentence to the disgraced ex-governor.
Yesterday in a mockery of justice, the Parole Board allowed residents to submit letters. This appears to be another orchestrated event planned by Governor Inos to get the people behind his despicable act. After all this is not a parole hearing. Fitial never spent a day in jail. It is a pardon, which the governor has the power to execute.
Yesterday the Board of Parole arranged for residents to go to the Multi-Purpose Center to drop off their letters expressing their opinion on the pardon. Then, as expected, the Board of Parole voted to support a commutation of Fitial's jail sentence.
There could have been 300 letters opposing the pardon and 50 supporting it, and the board still would have voted the same way. This was all pre-planned. The criminal was to be pardoned even before he plead guilty to the two counts.
Perhaps Fitial threatened all of his cronies that he would spend his days in prison writing a tell-all book to expose their collusion, corruption and crime. Perhaps Governor Inos feels a sense of loyalty to his corrupt brother in crime. Whatever the reason, justice will not be served when this criminal is pardoned.
