Sam Morrison, former staff attorney at the U.S. Office of the Pardon Attorney, talked to Melissa Harris-Perry about Clarence Aaron, who is serving three life sentences for a first-time drug offense and whose clemency request was allegedly mishandled. Morrison said that he felt at the time he worked on the case, and still believes, that Aaron's three life sentences should be commuted. "President Obama could solve this problem this afternoon," he said, adding, "There's no reasonable person who really believes that Clarence Aaron deserves to die in prison."
