Montana: Gubernatorial Debate

The Great Falls Tribune reports the following with regard to the contest between Democrat Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Republican challenger Roy Brown and Libertarian Stan Jones.
Jones said the United States has become a police state that incarcerates its citizens at a higher rate than any other country in the world. If elected, Jones said his first task will be to review the state's prison population and pardon any drug offender who has not committed a violent crime.

I hope the comment is true. Seems like Governors like to say they will grant pardons (IL's gov has 3000 on his desk!) and then they stall. Many people's lives are in limbo as they wait for a Gov. to grant a pardon. Of course, not everyone is deserving of such an extraordinary gift; however, those who are should be given the second chance.
