Regarding the Feb. 1 news article “ For McCollum and Brown, freedom has a cost”: Henry McCollum and Leon Brown spent most of their lives behind bars. Both have been proven innocent of the crime they were accused of. Both are living in poverty waiting for the governor to issue pardons. He has been sitting on their applications since Sept. 11. Both want pardons to clear their names, allow them to work and be able to collect compensation from the state that imprisoned them for much of their lives.
What’s holding things up, governor?
