EASTER MERCY: Christie Commutes Former Marine’s Jail Sentence For Violating Ridiculous N.J. Gun Law

Gov. Chris Christie is providing an Easter-time demonstration of clemency and compassion, Save Jerseyans, by commuting the sentence of former Marine Police Sgt. Hisashi Pompey.

Pompey, a veteran of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, was set to report to prison next week for a three-year sentence.

For what ‘crime,’ you ask? Carrying a legally owned and registered in Virginia (but unlicensed in New Jersey) six years ago; in 2011, Pompey’s friend grabbed the then-active duty sergeant’s gun from his holster and  confronted police with it.

The Administration is reportedly exploring a full pardon.
