Huckabee-Freed Killer Still Alive (Update: And Now, Not)
Police think they're closing in
on the murderer of four policemen in Lakewood(which, despite news reports, is not
Seattle and not even in the same county; another story has it in Parkland
, and the Rachel Maddow show claims nearby Tacoma) that was set free by Gov. Mike Du--I'm sorry, I mean Huckabee. The fellow in question had a 95-year prison sentence commuted by the governor
almost ten years ago. So Huckabee has some cop blood on his svelte hands.
However, it must also be asked why he was released just last week on bail
from the Pierce County jail with eight, count 'em, eight
felony counts facing him, including "third-degree assault on a police officer, and second-degree rape of a child."
Update: he was shot dead this morning
by a lone cop. And was apparently quite the freaking lunatic
Clemmons was (previously) accused of gathering his wife and young relatives around at 3 or 4 in the morning and having them all undress. He told them they need to "be naked for at least 5 minutes on Sunday," a Pierce County sheriff's report says. "The whole time Clemmons kept saying things like trust him, the world is going to end soon, and that he was Jesus," the report says.
