  • Mike Huckabee’s Maurice Clemmons problem

    If former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is going to run for president in 2016, his campaign is going to have to run through the Forza coffee shop in Parkland, Wash. That’s where one of Huckabee’s many parolees, Maurice Clemmons, assassinated four Lakewood police officers in 2009, depriving nine children of a parent and setting a national perception that Huckabee abused his powers of clemency. Huckabee told The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin (the other Jonathan Martin) that he views a 2016 presidential bid as “a real opportunity for me.” The Washington Post quickly called Huckabee “a long shot” because he...

    Darcus Allen, the getaway driver in the murder of four Lakewood police officers in November 2009, was sentenced Friday to 420 years in prison.The getaway driver in the murder of four Lakewood police officers was sentenced Friday to 420 years in prison. Pierce County Judge Frederick Flemming imposed the maximum possible sentence on Darcus D. Allen, a 39-year-old Arkansas native who was found guilty of first-degree murder last month for acting as the getaway driver for shooter Maurice Clemmons. Before sentencing, Allen turned to Kim Renninger, widow of slain Sgt. Mark Renninger and held his arms wide.

    A jury in Tacoma has convicted the getaway driver in the Lakewood police killings with first-degree murder. The News Tribune reports the Pierce County jury did not find Dorcus Allen guilty of aggravated circumstances. Prosecutors charged Allen with four counts of aggravated first-degree murder in the 2009 deaths of four Lakewood police officers. Allen admits he drove Maurice Clemmons near the Forza coffee shop in the gunman's truck in November 2009. His defense argued he only drove Clemmons to a nearby car wash because Clemmons told the man he could borrow his truck that day to make some money. Clemmons...

    After weeks of keeping himself in the headlines and growing more explicit about his intentions to run for president in 2012, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee touted himself as the Republican front-runner, The Hill reports. Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Huckabee attempted to remain elusive about his presidential ambitions, but showed he is closely watching his poll numbers. "I end up leading a lot of the polls," Huckabee said. "I'm the Republican that clearly at this point does better against Obama than any other Republican." About his presidential run, Huckabee added: "I haven't closed the door. I think that would...

First, he's running in 2012. Evidence? He just bought a house in Florida and he's lining up 8,000 word "Meet the Candidate" pieces in the New Yorker that cast him as "the wayward Republican" "best hope" for the GOP. Don't be a fool.

    It would be conveniently tidy for the story of last month’s Parkland police massacre to begin and end with recently-departed cop killer Maurice Clemmons; tidy for social apologists who never seem to run out of excuses for people like Clemmons, and tidy for people left in his wake. This is not a tidy world. If it were, Clemmons would still be in an Arkansas prison and the four police officers he gunned down would be looking forward to the holidays with their families. Clemmons, it is now evident, represents the tip of an iceberg that encompasses several relatives and some...

    The nation was stunned by the senseless and savage cold-blooded murders of four young police officers in Lakewood, Wash., over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Whenever a police officer or soldier is killed, the loss is even more profound, for they are the ones who stand between our way of life and total anarchy. Nine years ago, the name Maurice Clemmons crossed my desk. I commuted his sentence from 108 years to 47 years. I take full responsibility for my actions of nine years ago.

    The Mike Huckabee body count continues to rise. During his 10 years as Arkansas governor, Huckabee commuted the sentences of 1,033 convicted criminals. He knowingly released more than a few rapists and murderers and sometimes mocked or attacked prosecutors who pleaded with him to keep violent offenders behind bars. While Huckabee was governor, the parole board released convicted rapist Wayne Dumont. Huckabee had publicly argued for Dumont's release, and parole board members said he pressured them to let the rapist out. Eleven months after his release, Dumont raped and killed a woman. In 2000, Huckabee granted clemency to Maurice Clemmons,...

    Here is video of former Arkansas Mike Huckabee defending his decision to grant clemency to Maurice Clemmons in 2000. Clemmons killed four police officers in the Tacoma, Washington area last weekend, and was subsequently shot and killed by police as they tried to apprehend him. Huckabee said Clemmons had committed robbery and burglary as a 16 year-old, and received a sentence of 108 years. After serving 11 years, Huckabee got the file and decided to commute the sentence to 47 years, which made him parole eligible. The parole board then let him go. Huckabee said if he had that file...

    There were also three separate courtroom incidents in 1990 where Clemmons tried to use a weapon against a judge, threw a padlock at a bailiff, and tried to take a guard's pistol. A judge ordered Clemmons be placed in leg shackles because he felt Clemmons threatened him.

    Last April, a Department of Corrections officer was watching a television news story about a series of armed robberies around Puget Sound when he saw a Pierce County Crime Stoppers sketch that bore a striking similarity to a man he'd once monitored — Maurice Clemmons. The officer passed on the tip to Clemmons' current supervising officer, who called Crime Stoppers. Yet, somehow, the tip didn't filter down to all the detectives working the cases. A Crime Stoppers operator told the officer that they had "received too many tips/leads already," according to the second DOC officer's notes. Crime Stoppers "refused to...

Rickey Hinton, 47, pleaded not guilty Thursday at his arraignment to three counts of first-degree rendering criminal assistance.

    During the 2008 campaign I made the statement that I thought that Huckabee was the most dangerous Republican candidate in that he would be a disaster as president. I said this because of the excesses of compassion that he had demonstrated as governor of Arkansas, as well as his unwillingness to put aside his religious beliefs in the conduct of public business. He is obviously a very talented showman, as his success on Fox demonstrates, but again I say, he is a most dangerous man. His misplaced compassion has left many victims.

    Washington state will not accept any more parolees from Arkansas. The governor's order stems from the belief that Arkansas could have kept the Lakewood cop killer Maurice Clemmons behind bars. Despite a 108-year sentence in Arkansas, Clemmons was on parole. Former Governor Mike Huckabee granted that parole, and is still defending himself for it. Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire says under a national agreement, Arkansas should've taken Clemmons back last May when he got himself in trouble again. And don't blame the local courts for the Lakewood tragedy, the governor said. Corrections chief Eldon Vail told Arkansas he'll reject any more...

It was May 9, 2009. Clemmons, 37, had been arrested after punching a sheriff’s deputy in the face.

He said he'd fallen in with a bad crowd after moving to Arkansas, but had turned his life around. He said he'd prayed Huckabee would help him. Circuit Judge Marion Humphrey, who is also a Presbyterian minister, supported the clemency application. Clemmons wrote in an appeal to Huckabee that he'd been sent to prison after an extended crime spree that started in 1989 when he was a teenager — and that he was a different...
