In Brewer's defense, over the past year, she has provided excessively insulting boiler-plate commentary on her decision, which could be applied to any other clemency decision that she has made - e.g.,"It's an unfortunate situation. I appreciate your concerns. But I have made my decision and it's final." Brewer has not, however, ever even attempted to address the decision making of the State's Board.
So, yesterday, Brewer was asked:
"He's 75. He's got heart problems and arthritis ... To say that he's a threat to public safety? Why won't you release him?"ABC 15 says Brewer - like any 17th century queen drunk with power - was "surprised" by the question. It has only been tossed at her a half dozen times now! And, because she can, she turned on her heels and walked away. See ABC 15 report here.
