Maurice Clemmons, the 37-year-old man wanted for questioning in the killing of four Lakewood police officers Sunday morning, has a long criminal record punctuated by violence, erratic behavior and concerns about his mental health.
His criminal history includes at least five felony convictions in Arkansas and at least eight felony charges in Washington. That record also stands out for the number of times Clemmons has been released from custody despite questions about the danger he posed.
Mike Huckabee, while governor of Arkansas, granted clemency to Clemmons nine years ago, commuting his lengthy prison sentence over the protests of prosecutors.....Most people remember the controversy surrounding another prisoner released by Huckabee--- Wayne Dumond. The Washington Monthly has the horrid details about Wayne Dumond and the clemency that was granted by Huckabee.
>>>> Sarah Palin quit again. Palin, who famously quit her job as governor of Alaska, has been accused of quitting something else. According to Think Progress, Palin quit a 5k race before it ended.
Doesn't Palin know that "...quitters never win..."?
