Turnbull's Pardons Make Our Skin Crawl


Dear Source:
How frustrating these pardons must be to honorable policemen, prosecutors, judges, and their staff–not to mention witnesses who risked retribution and jury members who did the right thing by serving–all Virgin Islanders spent countless hours of their lives seeing that justice was served in each case, only to have Turnbull wipe it all out in a flick of his pen. Parents, spouses, siblings, and friends of the victims must be sick at heart. Bankers in the community now learn that a two-time offender is back on the streets. Were these people friends and relatives of the arrogant Turnbull? His actions made my skin crawl.
