Haley Barbour and the Scott Sisters

At this moment, the Scott Sisters have been granted probation by the Governor of Mississippi – Haley Barbour with the stipulation that:

   1. The healthy sister donates a kidney to the sister currently on dialysis.

   2. They are confined to the city of Pensacola, Florida and must get the permission of their Probation Officer to attend any event or assembly.

It obvious why the State of Mississippi forced this probation of the sisters – the cost of maintaining the health of the sister on dialysis is not a priority of the Governor of Mississippi!  The apparent objective is to dump the medical cost of the sister by putting them on probation and out of the prison system’s responsibility – getting the sisters out of the State was a boon.

Considering that testimony critical for the Prosecutor was coerced to gain a conviction, there is considerable doubt that the sisters were ever given a fair trial.  The sisters have denied any involvement in the robbery of three teenage boys.  There is even evidence that the sisters were not within the area of the robbery, evidence that was suppressed at trial.

In a democracy, silence is not golden; it is condonance in the face of injustices; it is fear, where the thought of reprisal fosters control – Rodney A. Davis
