A Colorado parolee who was killed in a gunfight with authorities in Texas this week is officially considered a suspect in the death of
Colorado’s prisons chief, a spokesman for the El Paso County Sheriff's Office said Saturday. Tom Clements, who had served as head of Colorado's
prison system for two years, was shot to death Tuesday when he answered the door of his home near Colorado Springs. The suspect, Evan Spencer Ebel,
28, was shot two days later by law enforcement following a high-speed chase that ended about 60 miles west of Dallas.
In a twist, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said Friday that he knew Ebel's father and had known of his son's troubles. "I met Jack Ebel some 30
years ago when working for an oil company soon after moving to Colorado. Jack is one of the most kind and generous people I know. His son had a bad
streak that I know he tried desperately to correct," Hickenlooper said in the statement.
The Governor added that "the events of the past few days have been devastating for all involved. I am in shock and disbelief about how everything
seems connected in this case. It makes no sense."
Does it make no sense or doesn't it?
It just so happens Hickenlooper just signed a controversial CO gun bill into law...
Tom Clements gets shot the day before Hickenlooper is set to sign the gun control bill.
Ebel's father contributed to the Governor's campaign as well...
Did Ebel have an old score to settle?
Is there another motivation?
But not all of Clements' changes have been popular among the rank-and-file. Two prisons closed under Clements' watch, and he would soon have been
involved in deciding which other prisons to close in response to a dwindling prison population. "We know of his position and realize that it is a
possible motive for a crime such as this," Kramer said.
That's not what the rank and file want....closing prisons decreases the police state, and decreases state profits!
