William Bonney has an honorable reputation amongst many northern New Mexico
Hispanics. He single handedly tried to fight corruption in this state. He was
just the fall guy for several dirty politicians. He was the song of a single
parent that was on the wrong side of a range war. Many people feel he was
promised a real pardon by Govenor Lew Wallace. He deserved that pardon from our
own former corrupt to the core Governor Bill Richardson.
This whole thing is a sad commentary on our current popular culture who through
a movie like "Young Guns" we can make a cold blooded killer a cult
hero worthy of a pardon.
As its is hes been Dead for years!!!!He was nothing but a terrible Outlaw
who chose that kind of life let him rest in peace-
Richardson is a joke. Had Billy the Kid been Pancho Villa, he would have
pardoned him in a nano second. What does Billy the Kide have to do with New
Mexico anyway? Come on man!
Richardson`s little publicity stunt.The Kid was a nasty little
I wonder in the end who cares?
