The press has ignored what has come out in the in the Lakewood Washington accessory to murder trials and investigation near Seattle where four police officers were gunned down.  Apparently, at one time, murderer Maurice Clemmons was being held in jail without bond after being arrested for rape charges in Washington. But a former Arkansas judge-turned-attorney (Stephen Morley), after leaving the bench under scandal, talked someone in the office of Democratic Governor Beebe to rescind the Arkansas no-bond order allowing Clemmons to post bail. He was arrested several more times and continued to post bail, until after the last arrest he got so angry he went out and killed four cops.  There may have been another warrant out for Clemmons as well, that was ignored by the Washington justice system.

A blogger broke the story last month of Gov. Beebe’s office involvement   in a story entitled: The Maurice Clemmons Case: We Blamed the Wrong Arkansas Governor, but the press has totally ignored the story: Zero Google News Hits!

Last year, Shane posted Mike Huckabee’s written response and gave his side of the story.  There were tons of details that the press left out at that time as well.

  1. Honestly, I don’t see that this has anything to do with Gov. Huckabee one way or the other — it’s completely unrelated to his commutation of Clemmons’ sentence. If you think he was wrong to reduce Clemmons’ maximum jail time by ~60 years, this will only provide further ammunition for the argument that he did wrong (basically, once you let crooks out of jail, stuff like this can happen). If you agree with him (as I do) that Clemmons’ original sentence was disproportionate, that commuting it was perfectly reasonable, and that he exercised his powers to a reasonable degree, then all this really gives us is a better understanding of why a reasonable act ultimately came to such a terrible end.

    1. Implied, but not stated, is the politics of the whole thing. The absolute silence of the press on Beebe’s role is amazing. I happen to think that Huckabee’s role was minimal and only used the word responsible in connection with him (in the title) because he manned up and took responsibility himself. There is no question this will come up again in the campaign and little inoculation can’t hurt.

  2. Mike Huckabee is a good and decent man who also happens to both brilliant and experienced in governing. He will make a great President of the United States.
