Agreed. I think the spouses and family are happy just with this; imagine their reaction when they got the call this afternoon!

Thank God.

That these men were convicted and imprisioned at all is despicable, but at least Moderator cut: national political comment finally did the right thing. Finally!! A pardon would have been better, but at least they can now go home to their families.

I am mixed on this. I don't think they should of gotten the sentence they received.. but I do think they deserve something other than what they have served so far. They committed a crime..

They dont deserve a full pardon. Lets consider it Time Served, and they better not get their jobs back in law enforcement of any kind.
