The correct route has been followed by the NAACP to secure a pardon for these individuals. Petitions have been sent to the governor. But we need to shine the light of justice on the injustices that were done in the state's name over 40 years ago. The Wilmington 10 have been cleared of any crimes they were charged with. Their sentences were overturned in Federal District Court. They want full pardons from their state before they die. It is already too late for some of them. It is something any of us would want. It is something the state owes them, especially in the light of this new evidence. If you think differently, do more than a little research on this topic. The racial animus that still lives and breathes in this state needs to die with this generation and I pray that it does.
