Every Governor pardons on his way out of office... They pardon based on recommendations from the parole board, suspended sentences for patients who are ill, usually extremely so and pardon individuals who have already completed their minimum sentences...

Involuntary manslaughter. OK. Stolen car. OK.
Murder and rape. Never. Kidnapping (especially of a child) - Never.
