(1) #BillClinton granted a #pardon to #MarcRich, who was convicted of #racketeering and #taxevasion and was on #FBI 's #MostWanted list.
(2) The pardon followed donations by #DeniseRich of $1M to the Dems, $100K+ to #Hillary 's campaign and $450K to the #ClintonLibrary .
(3) #Obama granted #clemency to 1,927 criminals, more than any other President . He released to the public 504 inmates w/ #LifeSentences .
(4) #JackJohnson - 1st black #heavyweight #boxer - was convicted under the #MannAct because his girlfriend was white. #Racism at its worst.
(5) #PresidentTrump pardoned #JackJohnson at the request of #SylvesterStallone . #JackJohnson was inspiration for #ApolloCreed in #Rocky .
(6) #PresidentTrump remedied this wrong. Shame on Obama and Clinton for both their inaction and their abuse of the great #clemency power.

I don't agree with the cancellation of #Roseanne . Why? I don't believe racism was in her heart or mind when she made the comment. It was one of a series of jokes focused on her targets' intellect & world view, and she didn't stop to think about the term's use as a slur.
(1) If I thought Roseanne had intentionally lashed out with a racist remark, I would be on the bandwagon with #ABC 's decision. But I do not, and I'm doubtful that ABC leadership actually thinks that she is a racist.
(2) ABC seized the opportunity to crucify her and end the show because they were safe in doing so. They wanted the show off the air, notwithstanding its high ratings, because it ran counter to #MSM 's messaging.

(1) @jasoninthehouse has it right. We're sorely lacking #mentalhealth resources to identify and treat people who become #masskillers. If politicians honestly want to stop these murderers, that's where they should start.
(2) Going after the method of killing is next to useless. They'll use trucks, explosives, guns, cars, knives, etc. Take one away (which itself is next to impossible) and they will find another. We've seen it happen repeatedly.
(3) Closing down the #mentalhospitals in the 60s and 70s was one of the worst policies implemented by the left. It led to a huge increase in homelessness for the current patients, who were not equipped to live independently.
