No Christmas for four police officers in Lakewood WA thanks to a man now being sought for their murder; Maurice Clemmons was pardoned by Mike Huckabee. Another criminal Huckabee pardoned went on to murder a woman. Enjoy the book, folks; the four cops in Wash. state won't have a chance to read it, though, due to Huckabee's decision.
Huckabee did pardon the guy, but that was nearly 10 years ago when he did that. This Maurice Clemmons has been in and out of jail several times since then. You can't lay the blame on Huckabee alone for these most recent murders. In fact, I don't blame Huckabee at all, but I do question why he had allowed a man who was serving a life sentence to go free.
Huckabee never pardoned this guy, he commuted his sentence. Big difference - There were way more people involved than just Huckabee. He commuted his sentence to 47 years -the killer served 11 years and became eligible for parole.Hmm-doesn"t that involve a parole board? The worst crimes this man committed was in the State of Washigton where the judges set low bail for this man who raped a 12 year old girl- he committed numerous felonies in Washington state. Huckabee isn't to blame for this man's murderous heart and lack of regard for human life. Sometimes evil is just that EVIL.
You CAN justify anything if you bend the letters... of the law... or words: EVIL spelled backwards is LIVE. Evil DOES live, and Santa's sleigh is pulled by six does and one buck. There! Now we're ALL as confused as the guy that started this dumb conversation. Now, where was I, oh yeah, I'm one buck short of havin' enough dough to buy this book. Anybody got one? A buck'r a book'r do it for me. Merry Christmas Everybody-- especially the three folks [commentors] before me: "Ricky Nelson" "mhn92" and, who could ever forget "ye olde book freak" Happy New Year, and Good-bye* *= denotes an olde-English contraction for God Be With Ye: ==========================>G O O D - B Y E Which just goes to show ya, an athiest cannot even SAY it... maybe life AIN'T fair
Too bad folks can't get over their prejudices (political/religious/regional) to just enjoy some good things in life - thank the Lord that none of us, whether you're a believer or not, can be forgiven for things in our past, whether an outright sin or just a decision that we don't know how it will turn out. Meanwhile, read a sweet little book that reminds us that everybody has a story and usually, those stories are helpful or inspirational to many others. So . . . read the book if you want to, make a fair comment ABOUT THE BOOK then go about living in whatever world you've build around yourself
