    Maurice Clemmons, man wanted for questioning, has troubling criminal history

    This is one of the red flags which makes Huckabee such a horrible candidate for president.

    Nine years ago, then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee granted clemency to Clemmons, commuting his lengthy prison sentence over the protests of prosecutors.

    "This is the day I've been dreading for a long time," Larry Jegley, prosecuting attorney for Arkansas' Pulaski County said tonight when informed that Clemmons was being sought for questioning in connection with the killings.

    Clemmons' criminal history includes at least five felony convictions in Arkansas and at least eight felony charges in Washington. The record also stands out for the number of times he has been released from custody despite questions about the danger he posed.

    Huckabee, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination last year, issued a statement tonight calling the slaying of the police officers "a horrible and tragic event."

    If Clemmons is found responsible, "it will be the result of a series of failures in the criminal justice system in both Arkansas and Washington State," Huckabee said.


    No Governor. It will be your fault, no one else besides the killer himself.

    Huckabee made a bad decision in releasing a 17 year old from a 94 year prison sentence. Since then the american legal system is doing what it was designed to do; keep quilty people on the street. Plenty of blame to go around. Huckabee's only fault lies in making a judgement that didn't pan out. This, unlike our glorious leader who is now president despite going out of his way to not make decisions that could influence potential voters.

    It's pretty lame of you to make a tragedy perpetrated by an animal into a political issue just to get cheap shots on illegal immigration and your hate for Huckabee in.

    We should put Huckabee in jail for not being able to see the future.

    ****ty job Mr. Huckabee ****ty job.

    Nothing to do with not seeing the future.

    Animals are animals, he had the option of keeping this animal where he belonged and failed.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Oh,
    my comment was non-suquitor. He should be jailed for not being able to see the future, though.

    If Huckabee were a Democrat, the right would be screaming for his head, Willie Horton style. Hypocrites. And you stand here and excuse Huckabee while actually trying to bash Obama for NOT doing something. Pathetic.

    Pretty pathetic of you to not recognize the reality of his decision and the people who died because of it.

    Since its painfully obvious you don't have a clue what this guy was charged with under Huckabee, allow me to enlighten you once again.

    This isn't about predicting the future genius. Its about locking people away for what they do.

    Maurice Clemmons received a 35-year sentence in the early 1990s for armed robbery and theft. His sentence was commuted in May 2000, and he was let out three months later.

    MORE

    Here are the figures for neighboring states since 1996, when Huckabee took office (and keep in mind the population of these states is nearly 20 times ours):

    ___ >> Louisiana – 213.
    ___ >> Mississippi – 24.
    ___ >> Missouri – 79.
    ___ >> Oklahoma – 178.
    ___ >> Tennessee – 32.
    ___ >> Texas – 98 (in-cludes 36 inmates released because they were convicted on drug charges with planted evidence).

    Total: 624 vs. Huckabee’s 703.



    Next time do a little research before slapping on the sarcasm tights.
