    [QUOTE=Toothpicvic;1058396711]He was put in for life for a reason. What irks me the most is that the only reason Huckabee released this guy is because he "said" he was a "born-again Christian" just like the serial rapist.

    QUOTE]

    Actually there is no evidence of Clemmons ever claiming to be a "born again Christian".

    And the rapist Wayne Dumond was paroled for a number of reasons. One being that Mick Huckabee's predecessor Jim Guy Tucker reduced his sentence.

    As for Huckabee being soft on crime?

    You must be kidding.

    Governor Mike Huckabee approved the executions of more murderers than any modern Arkansas governor.

    Including three in one day.

    How's this any different than when Obama admin dropped the prosecution of the Black Panther members who intimidated voters in the 08 election? I remember at that time, it was a big outrage, and no one even got raped or murdered as a result of that.
    Its not and you are exactly right.

    I'm a Christan and a hard core conservative.

    Huckabee didn't pay enough attention to Jesus.

    Three strike laws in general aren't opposed. Giving people 25 years to life in prison for shoplifting a few hundred dollars or products is.

    No one in the justice system expects a person to serve decade after decade for burglary.

    Pardons have long been political, this is why I am against them, these men are not kings, they are not even judges, this practice should end IMHO.

    Again, I've seen no evidence that Clemmons ever claimed to be a "born again Christian" or that Governor Huckabee ever considered this possibility.

    You are probably right there. They do usurp the will of the jury of 12.
