I think this story could do more to bring Governor Mike Huckabee into the spotlight than all the advertising money can buy! Once people learn (those who can still think and reason for themselves) that the sentence was COMMUTED, not PARDONED, and that a parole board had to then decide if CLEMMONS was SUITABLE to be paroled, Huckabee may actually gain sympathy after being slammed so hard. Here’s the Statement on his site. I wouldn’t have done what he did, but there is more than enough blame to go around, and many people whose actions made it possible for this guy to gun down 4 officers yesterday.
Let’s just look at what happened in Washington State in 2009 – this guy should not have been walking around!
Some comments I left on news sites this morning…
Sincere sympathy to the families!
I wonder how many deceased people would be alive today if our lawmakers hadn’t caved to the trial lawyers in writing laws that FORBID using prior criminal records as pertinent evidence in current cases. What could be more important than knowing that someone is a habitual offender?
Why don’t we enact laws that forbid bail in the case of persons with multiple felony convictions? Our legal system coddles the criminals and leaves the public in danger. If we save a few thousand innocent people, and in the process, fry one wrongly-convicted person… well, I’m comfortable with that ratio!
To someone no doubt listening to some of the many LAZY, biased, unprofessional media people out there, one of many who now believe this is all Mike Huckabee’s fault:
You are uninformed. Since Huckabee’s actions, this man has been arrested and imprisoned, released, dismissed, bailed, etc. the most recent bail granted LAST WEEK by your Superior Court Judge for JUVENILE RAPE. Why don’t you call her for an explanation, (rather than suggest Huckabee come to Lakewood and explain to the families of the slain officers.)
Please, don’t let the press form your opinion, as they tell only the part of the story they want you to hear. Go on your own county website to the Superior Court records section, and type in CLEMMONS to see the recent crime record. It will blow your mind!
To the bleeding heart wondering why the jail won’t hold more people, and where did he get the gun… and what can we do, etc.
“…What can we all do to honor the murdered officers…What good can WE make out of this?” ANSWER: Make it never happen again! HOW? Stop coddling criminals, elect legislators who ARE NOT lawyers or getting money from Trial Lawyers Association, one of the richest lobbying orgs in the country.
Yes, some judges have leeway, and to those I say, think of the victims, not the suffering mother of the criminal. But some judges have their hands tied by laws. I don’t know if he had a legal right to be granted bail for that rape. If not, then is the judge elected, or appointed? If appointed, by whom? Are THEY elected. Until citizen make it their business to BE INFORMED, the loons will continue to run things for the benefit of extra-small minority special interests, like criminals.
When you vote, you determine if a nut will rape and kill you, then get out on bail, parole in 7yrs. Everything connects. So try to remember these officers next election!
