Former Mississippi governor, Haley Barbour, was arrested on January 2, 2018 for taking a loaded gun into the airport.  According to Barbour, he forgot the weapon was in his briefcase.  While we do feel this is something that could happen to anyone we do have to wonder how forgiving the former governor would be if a person of color had committed the same type of crime.
