Here is a partial list of people pardoned my George W. Bush (From Wikipedia).  This list is a subset of the list of people pardoned or clemenced by a U.S. president.  The order in the list of pardons is alphabetical, the year is the date of conviction.  Commutations are shown in the order granted.  What these (and all) pardons are telling me is that it’s OK for you to break the law because down the road, you can probably get clemency from the president.  This practice should be abolished!  I can’t believe some of the offenses, and now they’re all pardoned…
In contrast to some of his predecessors, President Bush has been one of the most cautious presidents in modern U.S. history when granting pardons or commutations.[1] As of December 23, 2008,[2] President George W. Bush had issued 191 presidential pardons to people who have served their entire sentence, and has commuted in addition the sentences of nine people.

Ironically, the first two names of Kenneth Lynn Norris has the same name as the shooting victim in Pennsylvania, Kenneth D. Lynn! Lynn looks like Jay Peck!
