The blogopshere is abuzz with news that the suspect in an quadruple cop killing had been granted clemency by then-Governor Mike Huckabee. If you hadn’t heard about this already, check out Michelle Malkin’s continuing coverage.
But this isn’t the first time that this scum-sucking POS has targeted a police officer. From an article in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette dated February 25, 1990 (via LexisNexis):
While waiting for his trial to begin, Clemmons, of 2808 Welch St., grabbed a padlock off his holding cell and hurled it at a court bailiff, Clark Thorne. His aim misfired and the lock struck his mother, who had come to bring him street clothes.
Clemmons already was serving 48 years on five felony convictions and is facing up to 95 more on charges of robbery, theft of property and possessing a handgun on school property.
The jury took just 16 minutes to find him guilty of burglarizing the Little Rock home of an state Trooper Keith Eremea of merchandise valued at $6,771, including his gun.
Clemmons broke into the home on April 4 by forcing open the garage.
And Mike Huckabee decided to commute this guy’s sentence knowing that the guy was a serial criminal that had previously targeted a police officer. Or maybe he didn’t know, it is Huckabee after all.
