Skip to comments.Huckabee again defends (Cop Killer) Clemmons pardon. Would do it again.

As he has before, Huckabee defends his decision to the New Yorker, saying Clemmons' prison sentence was unjust given what he knew at the time.
In Arkansas, Huckabee commuted the sentence of Maurice Clemmons, who went on to shoot four police officers in Washington last year. Given the same information he had then, Huckabee says, he would make the same decision.

Tearful tribute to the fallen four Lakewood Officers
Huckster is certainly running in 2012.
I feel like vomiting when I hear politicians make ridiculous statements like this. The Huckster is unfit for high office.
~Hastily pulling on fireproof suit~
In my book, Huckabee is an accessory to the murders of 4 police officers, and an urepentant one at that.
If justice was served, Huckabee would be serving life in prison, without parole.
Making the horrible and deadly decision to release Clemmons proved Huckabee a dangerous fool. Saying he would do it again proves that he is pure evil to the core. It is no surprise he raised a dog killer.
He is as evil as any Democrat, including Obama.
The Huckster pardoned more convicts than all the bordering states (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Missouri and Oklahoma) combined.
Hey Huck, why don’t you just stick to bass playing.... You really, really need the practice anyway. Really!
And by the way, I’m a pro bass player myself so I know what I’m talking about.
Indeed, and he is certainly losing in 2012.
Correct on all of your thoughts imo. To think there are fellow FReepers who champion this jerk....well, just hard to believe. Let them stand before the family’s of those 4 murdered policemen from Seattle and defend this idiot.
With you on this one, ExSoldier.
Also, unlike McCain, Sphincter, Graham and about 99% of all incumbent politicians, Huckabee is standing behind his decision.
He gets points in my book for that.
We are so used to pretend Christian politicians that, when one acts truely Christian, we sometimes see it as weakness. Does anyone really believe Huck would have shown clemency to this guy if he thought that this might happen?
Didn’t the “huckster” grow up in hope ark where clintoon did? There must be something in the water. Huckster isn’t ready for prime time.,...never will be ready.
Who do you think is ready/
Please wake up!
A Cristian socialist is still a SOCIALIST! and Huck has shown he is more than willing to expand the state for his "Christian" principles...the guy is as oily as Clinton.
His candidacy split the conservative vote in '08 and led to McCain getting in by default. All the Dems I know are always saying how they think he's the Republican's "best hope"...yeah, for re-electing a democrat.
No Thanks. He's probably the only Republican I would stay home rather than vote for.
His judgment is seriously flawed.
I guess he plays the bass like he practices his "Christianity"...
it's all for show...
Well, he released a man who had raped a young girl who was walking home one evening. This girl had a meeting with Huckabee and begged him not to release this evil man. Huckabee, in his infinte wisdom released him and he ended up raping and murdering people here in Missouri. But I’m sure that Huckabee stande by that decision too.
I’ll NOT vote if the choice is this pos or another turd named romney.
Put a fork in him, ya'll.
>He pardoned a burglar who had no violent crimes against any persons. He ha spent the time. He had no record of violence, so he could not forsee this action that was taken. No history of a violent offender.<
That is totally incorrect. Clemmons was imprisoned for multiple violent robberies and made threats against a judge. I believe he also assaulted a court officer.
He was a violent animal and the prosector, judge and jury all recognized this. But, Huckabee, in his evil arrogance, nullified the decision of the justice system and killed 4 cops.
Since when is standing by horrible decisions that destroy innocent lives a virtue?
A good man learns from his bad decisions. Clearly, Huckabee has learned nothing. He is a foolish, evil man, who has the blood of 4 police officers on his hands.
“We are so used to pretend Christian politicians that, when one acts truely Christian, we sometimes see it as weakness.”
Forgiving those who wrong YOU is Christian. Unleashing violent monsters on society, so they can rape and murder innocent people is DEMONIC!
“Does anyone really believe Huck would have shown clemency to this guy if he thought that this might happen?”
Well, Huckabee says he made the right call, when he pardoned the mass murdeer, so YES.
your lyin’ thru your 3 teeth and you know it. dry up sonny.
If you care about the truth, read up on the “non-violent” Maurice Clemmons.
Huckabee is an evil man.
Huck had outlived his shelf life. The pardons and what transpired with the pardons has tainted his chances.
The dems have a folder on this somewhere all ready to unleash.
He should stick to his gig on FOX.
Huckabee is a heretic. Hes a big spending, pro-criminal liberal. Here are just a few things you should know about him before you decide to vote for him.
Its heresy to claim that it is racist and un-Christian to ask for verified identification for voting and denying taxpayer funded benefits and services to those illegally in our country.
Huckabee claimed giving illegal aliens drivers licenses is our Christian duty. “It’s our Christian duty,” Huckabee explained, “we must be compassionate toward the illegal aliens and treat them like Americans.”
Pelosi: “And I said, I want you to speak about it from the pulpit. Some (who) oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews, and you have to tell them that this is a manifestation of our living the gospels.”
It is not Christian to aid criminals in the commission of their crimes. The Christian position is to forgive them when they repent and stop their criminal activity. Anyone who claims it is Christian to aid criminals to continue committing crimes is a heretic.
Calling global warming a “moral issue” mandating “a biblical duty” to prevent climate change, he has endorsed a cap-and-trade system that is anathema to the free market.
The False Conservative, Robert Novak, Monday, November 26, 2007
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week that passing energy and climate change legislation is a moral issue
CNS News, Monday, June 21, 2010
It seems Huckabee is Pelosis kind of Christian.
I dont care if you like the facts Ive posted or not. When a politician claims it is our Christian obligation to aid criminals to continue committing their crimes and says it is our Christian duty to destroy jobs and the economy through cap and tax Im going to call it what it is, heresy.
The press is pushing two liberals into the frontrunner position for the Republican nomination just like they did in 08. We waited too long to speak out then and ended up with a liberal nut case as our nominee. We cant afford to do that again. We have to expose Huckabee and Romney for what they are before the media gets them so far ahead that a conservative stands little chance of catching up.
It isnt a choice between weeding out the unacceptable candidates for the nomination and working to take back congress this year. We have to do both at the same time.
If you dont like what Ive posted nominate Huckabee and watch what the media brings out. Ive only scratched the surface here. I have plenty more and I dont have a staff to do opposition research. Just think what the Democrats and their media shills will do to him.
So you can be upset. You can even work to nominate Huckabee if you wish. Just be advised that Im going to bust my butt to let people know the truth about him and his record.
You have a nice day.
