Suspect in officer killings eludes law in Seattle


news.yahoo.com

The discovery added new urgency to the manhunt for Maurice Clemmons as police canvassed the neighborhood with search dogs and hundreds of officers were deployed around Seattle for any sign of the suspect. Authorities put up a $125,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

Police had been positioned overnight at a Seattle home where they thought Clemmons was holed up and spent hours trying to communicate with him, using loudspeakers, explosions and even a robot sent into the house. But when the SWAT team went inside, he was nowhere to be found.

"Clemmons has an extensive violent criminal history from Arkansas. He was also recently charged in Washington state with assaulting a police officer, and second-degree rape of a child. Using a bail bondsman, he posted $150,000 — only $15,000 of his own money — and was released from jail last week. "


He is not a good person. He raped children. Quit saying his murder was justified. Murder is murder, no matter how does it. Murder is NEVER justified, even if it is to end the life of another killer. (Which in this case, it is must likely not)

Oh, dear:


Clemmons has a long criminal history, including a long prison sentence commuted by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee nearly a decade ago, and a recent arrest for allegedly assaulting a police officer in Washington.
...
In 1989, Clemmons, then 17, was convicted in Little Rock for aggravated robbery. He was paroled in 2000 after Huckabee commuted a 95-year prison sentence.

Huckabee, who was criticized during his run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008 for granting many clemencies and commutations, cited Clemmons' youth. Clemmons later violated his parole, was returned to prison and released in 2004.

On Sunday, Huckabee issued this statement on his Web site: "Should he be found to be responsible for this horrible tragedy, it will be the result of a series of failures in the criminal justice system in both Arkansas and Washington state."


This should get interesting...

One good thing about this one.
He has a nice target on his face.
I do hope he is brought in alive so he can be extensively persuaded to talk.
C'mon someone turn him in while asleep,think what you can buy for that money.

He may be dead from a wound he received battling with the last officer.

But this story makes another important statement - Mike Huckabee chose PISS POOR judgment in commuting a man's 95-year prison sentence simply because he was "too young" at 17. This guy eventually was paroled and here we are now - 4 dead cops, the rape of a young girl and multiple assaults later.

I hope this guy is dead now and burning in hell for what he's done. But I think it also screams loudly that Mike Huckabee has NO PLACE in politics making decisions like these. I think the idiot should resign immediately!

do you really think that huckabee spent any time actually getting to know this guy on a personal level??

come on..

his lawyers petitioned for it, it came across the governers desk, all he sees is 17 and in prison for ever. like he said. he cited his youth. he gave the guy a chance, and the man who recieved the chance is at fault.

Okay, if that's true then it just reaffirms my statement that Huckabee is incompetent.

If you're about to commute a 95-year prison sentence just because someone is "too young", then you sure as heck better get to know that person on some kind of personal level. Making knee-jerk decisions like you stated - that's for politics of yesterday that got us nowhere today.
