Huckabee blames others for cop killings during O'Reilly interview (VIDEO)
The Examiner ^ | 12/1/2009 | Kevin Hall

He quickly pointed the finger at the parole board, the judge, and the prosecutor. He said no one spoke out against granting clemency, which does not square with the prosecutor's recollection.

And we can quickly point our fingers back at him for lowering his sentence allowing the parole board to grant him parole ... if he kept his nose out of it that guy would still be in prison and four cops still alive .... what a jerk.

“which does not square with the prosecutor’s recollection.”

Is this the same prosecutor that failed to file charges for violent felonies for 3 years? Resulting in this scum bag being released on those charges.

While we're at it, let's string up the bailbondsman who put up the $15,000 6 days ago... Or the two judges that signed off on the bail amount...

Nobody ever granted clemency. Huckabee reduced the guys sentence from 97 to 43 years. The parole board which the Governor has no control over paroled him. After he was paroled he violated his parole and was sent back to jail and later on they paroled him again. Recently, in Washington, he was released on $15K bond following an arrest for child molestation. He had 8 felony arrests in Washington after he left Arkansas.

Yes, before I jump on the blame Huckabee bandwagon, I want to know what the politics and record of this prosecutor are.

He can’t wiggle his way out of this one. We don’t need another “compassionate conservative” in the WH.
There are a lot of people that need to stay locked up for the good of the rest of us.
Now..let’s get on with locking up all those who aided this perp and send them away for a good long while.

I have never liked Huckabee. I have always considered him a phony. He has pardoned many violent offenders and always tries to slime his way out of it. He is not a stand up guy, he is a phony politician who will say anything. I still don't understand how people were dumb enough to vote for him in the presidential primaries.

The prison system is broken. Everyone knows its broken. Huckster would made a terrible President but laying all the blame on his doorstep for this one is silly and pure politics.

The system failed spectacularly. The parole board, the prosecutor, judges, lawyers, and the Gov all carry blame.

How many more of these animals have been released in every single state??

Full disclosure: I voted for Huck in the ‘08 primaries to send a message to McCain (Huck was the only choice left).

That being said, I've never understood why this guy had any traction with Conservatives at all, and he was seen as a rising star @2004.

His lack of personal responsibility and accountability on this is shameful.

Handing out over 1,000 commutations doesn't make you compassionate, it makes you reckless. You have to KNOW that some of the folks you're letting back out on the streets (at that rate) are going to cause harm to innocents. He was derelict in his duty to keep law abiding citizens safe.

The blood of four upstanding LEOs is on your hands, Huck, and no amount of spinning and finger pointing is going to change that.

Huckabee is a fair Bass Guitar player. He should stick to what he knows.

If FOX has any integrity they will cancel Huckleberry’s contract immediately.

How soon before the ‘Huckster’ takes a page from Zero’s book and blames Bush?
