After being sentenced to seven years in prison for a disputed gun violation, Aitken will now be able to spend Christmas at home
On December 2nd I published a post here about a Anti Gun Judge and what he did to Brian Aiken If you recall Brian was tried by the now disrobed NJ Judge James Morely and sentenced to seven years in prison for committing a crime.. that was only a crime in the Judges mind. Brian's non crime was transporting a firearm responsibly and in full compliance with New Jersey Law. You can read Brian Aitken needs some help if you happened to miss the story earlier.
Here is where it stands now, New Jersey Governor Christie is considering a pardon for Brian and has promised to make an announcement one way or the the other before Christmas. For a Governor to issue a pardon, he has to be reasonably sure it's not just a question of righting a wrong but he also needs to be able to justify it politically. If Gov. Christie can issue the Pardon with an announcement that his office received tens of thousands letters cards emails and phone calls requesting he pardon Brian, he looks like a hero.. Governors like looking like hero's..
That's were everyone one reading this comes in. Yesterday Jenna Marie Bostock, Editor-in-Chief, Alister & Paine send me this and ask me to post it here. Remember if it can happen to Brian, it could happen to any of us.
Trust all is well! It seems we're nearing the end of the fight...and we need your help.
Last week Governor Christie publicly stated that he would decide whether or not to grant Brian Aitken a Pardon by Christmas....his comments have left thousands of Brian's supporters optimistic that this injustice will be corrected.
