The Republican Trump administration has pardoned dozens of wealthy supporters while rapidly executing people of color at the same time. We analyzed forty cases of pardons and executions to analyze who gets to live and who dies.

When money buys freedom, it is the poor who die.

The Republican Trump administration has pardoned dozens of wealthy supporters while rushing to execute poor people of color. We analyzed forty cases of pardons and executions to see who gets to live and who dies.

Background

"President Trump announced a flurry of Christmas week pardons and commutations, with more expected before he leaves office on Jan. 20. Among the dozens who have so far benefited from Trump’s executive clemency power are allies and friends of the president or other Republicans, including full pardons to some who pleaded guilty to lying to federal law enforcement during the Russia investigation." - Washington Post

"The Trump administration has executed more Americans than all states combined, report finds. The execution spree was a first in US history and stands contrary to the declining trend in death penalty practices. All three Trump lame-duck executions involved black men. As the DPIC review points out, racial disparities remain prominent in the roll call of the dead, as they have for decades, with almost half of those executed being people of color." - The Guardian

We analyzed forty cases to see how some people who killed innocent civilians were set free while others were executed. Was there a connection between a wealthy donor to a campaign and being pardoned? Could you cheat Medicare and evade taxes and go free? Could you trample national parks and get a pardon? Were your chances of being pardoned better if you were rich and white? Judge for yourself.
