Massa Haley Barbour releases black sisters
Gladys and Jamie Scott are two black sisters who were sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly being accomplices in an $11 dollar robbery.
Barbour said he decided to suspend the sentences in light of the poor health of 38-year-old Jamie Scott, who requires regular dialysis. The governor asserted that 36-year-old Gladys Scott's release is contingent on her giving a kidney to her inmate sibling.The three men who actually committed the crime turned states evidence at the "request" of law enforcement and were treated with light sentences. And just for shits and giggles, Massa Haley is only suspending the sentences as long as the sisters follow the conditions of suspension, one of which is probably to never speak a bad word about Mississippi cops or Massa Haley.
"The Mississippi Department of Corrections believes the sisters no longer pose a threat to society," Barbour said in a statement. "Their incarceration is no longer necessary for public safety or rehabilitation, and Jamie Scott's medical condition creates a substantial cost to the State of Mississippi."
