That shooter (still on the loose) who shot and killed four cops in Tacoma? The suspect's name is Maurice Clemmons and:
Nine years ago in Arkansas, The Seattle Times reported, Mr. Clemmons was released from prison after Gov. Mike Huckabee commuted his lengthy prison sentence, over the protests of prosecutors. Late Sunday night, Mr. Huckabee’s political action committee released a statement saying that “a series of failures in the criminal justice system in both Arkansas and Washington State” would be to blame if Mr. Clemmons were found responsible for the shootings.
Not good for the "tough on crime" crowd.
Then again, Huckabee has been in this spot before….
