SACRAMENTO, California (AP) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger has agreed to parole a woman who killed her husband's mistress in 1987, the second time in a week the newly elected governor has granted the release of a convicted murderer.

Schwarzenegger's decision Wednesday marks a departure from former Gov. Gray Davis, who during his five years repeatedly refused to grant paroles approved by the state's Board of Prison Terms.

Davis blocked all but eight of 294 paroles approved by the board in murder cases. He twice rejected parole for Rosario Munoz, the woman Schwarzenegger has agreed to free.

Under state law, the governor can reject the state board's parole decisions. California is one of only three states that grants governors that power.

Schwarzenegger did not comment on his decision to parole Munoz, a 51-year-old mother of three who was convicted in 1989 of killing her husband's lover in Los Angeles.

The board's approval of Munoz's parole was based on her apparent remorse for the killing, psychological evaluations that showed a slim chance of her offending again and her efforts to raise money for the victim's daughter by selling portraits, said board spokesman Bill Sessa.

Schwarzenegger granted his first parole last Thursday, three days after taking office, when he agreed to release a Sacramento man convicted of a 1985 murder. He also denied parole for a man who killed a woman while driving drunk in 1986.

So he denied Parole for someone who killed sombody in a traffic collision. But he granted Parole to a murderer who served less then 19 years! Should have denied them both.

Well that explains why he was so fast to back up the extension of the assault weapons ban. He doesnt want all the murderers he's setting free to get hold of any evil guns. F#ck him!

And this is news why? Is he the only governor to parole a killer or is this the first time you've ever seen this done? The murder parole board did recommended parole it's not like Arnold picked the guy out at random. You'll note that California is one of only three states where the governor can actually reject these paroles ... the other 47 states are shit out of luck [lol] and all the parole board's decisions are final.
