You’re trying to say that my argument is politically motivated. My linking to a year and a half old column warning of the dangers of long sentences (dangers that led to just such a situation like that of Clemmons) refutes that.

Your assertion that “Huckabee is responsible... no one else” seems to be extremely politically motivated. Washington state gave him parole after he raped a child - something that no sane person, least of all Huckabee, would have done.

Yes on the first. Perhaps yes on the second.

And as with Huckabee, you are looking for scapegoats. Perhaps if Clemmons had served a longer sentence he might have improved himself. Perhaps he would have been worse. Now we will never know. Cold comfort for the dead police officers and their families, though.

You are incorrect. WA did NOT parole him.

Does a couple of teenagers raped by a murderer count one as a child rapist? One who then went on to murder again, after Chucklebee turned him loose, too?

Two members of the state parole board said Huckabee pressured them to show DuMond mercy, while Huckabee publicly questioned whether DuMond was guilty of the rape of a teenage girl. During the presidential primaries, a conservative group aired television commercials in South Carolina featuring the mother of Carol Sue Shields, whom DuMond killed in 2000 after his release.

Shooting re-opens Huckabee's clemency record


Early crimes
A decorated Vietnam-era military veteran, DuMond told reporters that he "helped slaughter a village of Cambodians".[5]

On August 8, 1972, DuMond was charged with murder in Lawton, Oklahoma. He committed the crime with help from two other men.[8] DuMond used the 17-year-old daughter of one of his accomplices to entice the victim to an isolated location, where DuMond and his accomplices beat him to death with a claw hammer. Prosecutors did not charge DuMond after he agreed to testify against the two others, though he admitted in court that he was among those who attacked the murder victim.

On October 19, 1973, DuMond was charged with molesting a teenage girl in the parking lot of a shopping center in Tacoma, Washington. The second-degree assault charge resulted in a five-year deferred sentence and mandatory drug counseling during the five-year probation.[8][5]

On September 28, 1976, DuMond was charged with raping a woman in DeWitt, Arkansas. The charges were dropped before trial with the condition he undergo counseling.[8]

[edit] Arkansas rape
DuMond received his second sexual assault conviction from a rape perpetrated in Arkansas in 1984. The victim, Ashley Stevens, was a 17-year-old cheerleader and a third cousin of then-Governor Bill Clinton.[9] Although she is much younger than Clinton, they share the same set of great-great-grandparents.

Or is that just more "smear" and "political conspiracy" against your demigod?

There is also plenty more examples of his misguided paroles/clemencies/pardons gone awry.
