All the captains let their underlings get away with murder but Sisko has to come out ahead by a landslide.
He didn't just forgive people for breaking the rules, he gave a speech to them about how they MUST NOT break the rules then quietly helped them along.
Picard, yeah, he reinstated Worf into Starfleet after resigning from Starfleet to serve in a foreign army. But all of this tolerance was after the fact. Janeway might be the only captain to ever really punish a crewmember for breaking orders. Archer was in pragmatist mode so he couldn't really punish anyone especially in season 3.
