Maurice Clemmons, from his Arkansas State mug shot
Maurice Clemmons, from his Arkansas State mug shot

(Dec. 2, 2009) — Maurice Clemmons, the man who executed 4 Washington State policemen in a coffee-shop over the weekend, was a pedophile pardoned by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, in 2001.

In a horrendous case of race-politics gone awry, the mercy received by Clemmons did not stop him from killing again.

CNN reported the history of Clemmons’ career in crime:

Clemmons has “extensive violent criminal history from Arkansas, including aggravated robbery and theft,” the sheriff’s department said in a statement.

He also was recently charged in Pierce County in connection with the assault of a police officer and the rape of a child, according to the statement.

According to a local prosecutor in Arkansas and past articles published by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, a repeat offender named Maurice Clemmons had his 95-year prison sentence commuted in 2001 by then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Huckabee cited Clemmons’ young age — 17 at the time of his sentencing — when he announced his decision, according to newspaper articles.

“It was not something I was pleased with at the time,” Larry Jegley, who prosecuted Clemmons for aggravated robbery and other charges in Pulaski County, Arkansas, told CNN Sunday.

Dr. Orly Taitz reports at her blog that she had received numerous death threats and harassing emails from the same areas of the country; and though she had complained to local authorities there, nothing was done.  It is not clear if these threats emanated from Clemmons, or whether he was an Obama supporter.

However, according to Wikipedia, Clemmons did claim to be the brother of Barack Hussein Obama and Opra Winfrey; he made these statements following his arrest on July 1st of this year.

Clemmons was shot dead, after a statewide manhunt to track him down.  The liberal media still claim that he was the “alleged shooter.”

  1. There is a difference between a pardon and a communtation, Mr. Charlton. The sentencing of the young Clemmons in Arkansas, at the time his age was 16, seemed excessive for the crimes he was accused of. Gov. Huckabee did not pardon Clemmons, he commuted (reduced) the number of years Clemmons was to serve. The parole board released Clemmons, not Huckabee. The parole board voted 5-0 in favor.


    Mr. Charlton replies: I never intended “pardoned” in the technical sense of the word, rather I intended it in the Christian sense…and the parole board could not have released him without that pardoning..but I put quotes around “pardoned” to clarify it….the common problem in America today is the insistence that common words only mean what lawyers say they mean…the English language is more descriptive than the law…
