Herman Knieriem: Seeking pardon

December 31, 2012 

Seeking pardon

Gov. Bev Perdue has done an exceptionally fine job especially in light of the challenges she faced with a recalcitrant legislature at times.

However, it is truly difficult to understand her hesitancy in the case of pardoning the Wilmington 10. She should immediately restore (with damages, if appropriate) what representatives of the state and local government took from them illegally, their dignity and full rights of citizenship.
