JACKSON, Miss. May 4, 2006 (AP)â€” Gov. Haley Barbour won't grant a posthumous pardon to a black Korean War veteran who was wrongfully convicted in segregationist Mississippi after he tried to enroll in an all-white university.
Clyde Kennard was convicted of purchasing $25 worth of chicken feed he knew to be stolen in 1960 and sentenced to seven years in prison, but the only witness against him has recanted his testimony. Kennard died in 1963, after being released early because he had intestinal cancer.
Barbour agrees Kennard was wronged but says he won't grant a pardon, despite calls for him to clear the man's name.

I'm all for clearing the names of those wrongly convicted. Hell, Hurricane is one of my favorite songs. But the guy is dead, why not put this effort into a case that can help a person who is still alive?
