Bush commutes Border Patrol agent sentences

President Bush's last executive act may be the commutation of the sentences for Border Patrol agents Compean and Ramos. The prison time they were given always seemed excessive, that they deserved some of it seemed indisputable. They shot a man who presented no threat, attempted (lamely) to cover up their actions, and then lied repeatedly about the incident. Which part of that represents the kind of lawmen we want patrolling our borders? I have heard the calls for pardons for them, and wondered why. They cause all honest officers to come under suspicion they don't deserve and they earned their time in jail. Hopefully they will take this opportunity to redeem themselves.
