Snoop is angry over the Governator deciding to shorten the prison sentence for a man named Esteban Nunez.

Nunez had been convicted of manslaughter after an incident where he stabbed a college student in a drunken fit of rage, but after initially being sentenced to at least 16 years in prison, back in 2011, Arnold's last act as governor was to shorten that sentence to seven years.

Nunez was released from jail — nine years early — on Sunday.

But this isn't just any person who Schwarzenegger decided to help get out of jail; Esteban is the son of

Speaking on Monday, Governor Deal stated unequivocally House Bill 757 "doesn't reflect the character of our state."

He added some very strong words against the measure, which would have granted faith-based organizations the right to deny service to those who violated their "sincerely held religious belief," as well as allowing those organizations to fire employees.

Deal went on to say:

We just hope America makes the right decision when choosing our next President!

South Dakota Senate Passes 'Bathroom Bill' Which Unfairly Targets Transgender Students

Filed under: PolitikTransgenderLGBT

no title

We just hope this gets vetoed!

On Tuesday, the South Dakota Senate passed a bill that requires high school students to use restrooms based on their "chromosomes and anatomy" at birth.

This measure is seen as discriminatory towards the transgender community as it forces students to use facilities that do not match their gender. This act could lead to more prejudice and intolerance.

Proponents of the bill argue that this is necessary to protect children's privacy.

The measure passed with a vote of 20-15, and was previously approved in the State House of Representatives.

Governor Dennis Daugaard has five days to veto the bill, or else it will become law.

According to Mara Keisling from The National Center for Transgender Equality:

"This bill hurts transgender students, takes away control from local schools, and doesn't solve any problems. In fact, it does more harm than good to both trans kids and South Dakota's reputation."

We're confident South Dakota will make the right decision.

This means the 50-year-old's criminal record is officially wiped clean!

In case you didn't know, the thespian was repeatedly arrested in the 90s for drug-related crimes. He served a total of two years and eight months in jail, and completed his parole in 2002.

In October, the New York native received an order from a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge, who believes he has "lived an honest and upright life, exhibited good moral character, and conducted himself as a law-abiding citizen."

The pardon reads:

"By completion of his sentence and good conduct in the community of his residence since his release, Robert John Downey, Jr. has paid his debt to society and earned a full and unconditional pardon."

Most of the people who were forgiven had minor drug offenses that are no longer felonies under California law.

Congratulations to RDJ!
