The Wilmington 10 do not deserve a pardon, and anyone who says they do, either did not live here in the area in 1971 or, are relatives of the individuals involved. I have lived in Wilmington all my life, and my father was a firefighter during that time. Ben Chavis was there, and standing behind my dad when Mike's Grocery was burned. The gunshots from Gregory Congregational would stop for a while, and the firemen tried to get the fires under control. Then, the gunshots would start again, and the firemen had to take cover under the fire trucks. The shots were coming from the church. So, no pardon for any of them!!
