Shooting Suspect Not Found Inside Seattle Home
KIRO-TV ^ | November 30, 2009 | KIRO-TV

Posted on 11/30/2009 7:40:02 AM PST by CedarDave

SEATTLE -- The suspect in the fatal shooting of four officers in Parkland was not found inside a Seattle home that was surrounded by a SWAT team and numerous officers, Pierce Co. Sheriff Detective Ed Troyer said.

Maurice Clemmons, 37, was believed to be holed up in the home in the Leschi neighborhood after he was shot and wounded by one of the four slain officers before fleeing from the Parkland coffee shop where the officers were gunned down.

I hope they catch this guy.

From this source:

Maurice Clemmons has a lengthy police record dating back to when he was 17-years old and living in Arkansas. He was convicted of aggravated robbery and sentenced to 60-years in prison. That sentence was commuted by then Governor Mike Huckabee in 2000 after Clemmons had served 11 years.

Clemmons was just released from Pierce County jail a week ago. He was awaiting trial on second degree rape of a child. He posted a $150,000 bond. Clemmons was also facing charges of assualting a police officer.

Rush just mentioned Huckabee pardoning this guy as a symptom of politicians caving to sympathetic protesters.

I don’t think it’s known exactly where he may have been wounded..... news references I saw last night were to a reported “abdominal” wound but of course there are huge variations in how such a wound will affect someone..... depends upon whether any organ was hit etc. But if any of the more vital organs were hit he would not have survived past daylight hours yesterday, most likely.

As for sepsis, I’m not in medicine but I’m not sure there’s any certainty that *all* abdominal bullet wounds would bring him to death’s door or the ICU. Anyway, it’s very speculative b/c I’m not sure anyone has definite knowledge of what kind of wound(s) he may have, outside of his little circle of lowlife helpers??? Maybe someone picked up by the police has provided more info, but then anyone associated with him is not exactly going to be cooperative?

The best hope for the coming hours is that he may at least be seriously limited in mobility and in the harms he can do until he is located.

There needs to be a LAW that if these people like Huckabee let them out of prison they will live next door to them or in there neighborhodd for rest of there live. And let them worry about there family going in out of there homes....ie if they will raped and killed by ones they let out of jail. This man had a 95 year sentence. Unforgiveable and a outrage!

From what I’ve read about the Huckster regarding pardons/commutations of sentences, he did not need any protestors to move him to put more dangerous criminals back on the streets than all of the surrounding states combined.

He was on a *mission* to believe that many had been reformed/rehabilitated, and in the case of Clemmons the Huckster cited the age (17) at which many of the crimes had been committed as some kind of reason to put him back on the streets.

So far as I can tell from a distance, Huckabee did not need any protestors to cave in to on these issues.

My stepson is from Washington State and he's a great kid. I once ragged on Illinois and got a freepmail rant from some moron. The place is indefensible but he just screamed and shrieked. I visited that blasted toilet in 2006 and it was as bad as I thought, maybe worse. That doesn't mean that there aren't some fine people there, just not enough to matter.

It's no different in my town. I live in the human hellhole, the people's republic of Tucson. Some of the stupidest people on earth live here, old men too dumb to cut the pony tails off their otherwise bald heads, and fat women of dubious and unknown sexuality with abortion bumper stickers on their cars.

I agree with your comments. They’re certainly as reasoned as Kaila’s and mine were.

Let’s just hope the guy was harmed enough to prevent him from doing any more harm to others.

12th and Atlantic where the action is right now is no where near the U of W. This is in the area of Harborview Hospital, or what us locals call Pill Hill. This is just West of Leschi where he was thought to be hiding last night. There are also some hobo jungles near the freeway they are also clearing.

Without the LEO’s having to communicate amongst themselves the likely personal and therefore, unexpressed (collective) thought that when this perp is cornered: he - is - to - be - ELIMINATED. TERMINATE WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE !!!

Huckabee failed, the AR parole board failed, the AR prosecutor(s) failed, the WA judicial system failed, etc. Huckabee wears a target that he earned, fair and square, but there are certainly others equally deserving of severe repercussions. The evidence against the perp mounted with each subsequent crime, and places further weight on the right or wrong decisions made by those in the system that were responsible for the prosecution and incarceration of this piece of trash/killer.

I don't like Huckabee but his pardon was based on the parole board and it was subsequent failures of Arkansas justice system ....HOWEVER...

this guy has had 8 felony charges alone up here in Washington...infact, he was in jail child rape charges and he also punched a cop...one judge did not want him to have bail and a second judge gave him bail and he made bail....

his ankle bracelet was off and he was not being supervised....

I blame Huckabee for a lot to stuff but not for this...this murder spree was several years after that animals release...

The most recent was bail for the child rape charge. Only $150,000 of which he needed only $15,000 to be posted. That was done (by who?? Relatives??) and he was on the street again.

I've lived in Washington state for about 33 years now...but originally from upstate NY....

people in the west think NY is some kind of giant NYcity....its not...

NYS is a beautiful state with lots of farms,orchards, lakes,forests, lots of deer and bear, and some moose....it has a large Eastern Europeon ethnic heritage and most people are wonderful and great...

upstates get drowned out by the people in NY city, but that happens in other states too...like Washington state....Seattle thinks its in charge...

Wow. A short press conference. Just the police chief and officers addressing the group assembled. Nothing about the hunt for the perp but that they will triumph in the face of adversity. Chief having a rough time talking, the PD is only a couple of years old and these four were original officers. All assembled having a rough time, supporting each other.

Then a rep for the police guild comes out and says there is a donation link on the web site. He says that something must be done when 5% of the population commit 90% percent of the crime. Fingers the politicians for letting them out to commit more crimes.

Hello (again) cherry,

The immediate blame must go to Piece County Judge Thomas J. Felnagle since he reversed the previous judge’s ruling of NO BAIL to $150,000 for Clemmons 7 days ago.

NO BAIL seems reasonable for felons charged with child rape.

You’d think dogs are on the hunt, but I have no idea. Clemmons is one clever criminal. Apparently, they’re certain he’s bleeding from the bullet or bullets fired by the fourth officer he slaughtered, so I am personally hoping JUSTICE will be served from that very wound. May he bleed out.

I got about the same amount of sleep and was shocked to learn he was still on the run!

I’m searching the WA papers to see if there’s a published quote or comment from that cretin judge. Thus far, I haven’t found any and I don’t expect I will.

THIS IS A TEACHABLE MOMENT FOR THE NATION ABOUT OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM THAT IS RIFE WITH DISEASED MINDS.

A bounty on FELNAGLE'S head is not an unreasonable request is it?

The perp’s family could put the equity in their home up for bail easy enough. Good point and question- WHO POSTED BAIL?

On the thread last night, someone researched the bail company. It had a slick name, something like “Jail Sucks” -— and I opined that perhaps the same woman who alerted the police that he was in that house also posted his bail and that she would be eligible to claim the reward!

"I'm not expecting much press coverage of the Huckabee Connection here, because the MSM views him as a credible opponent to Governor Sarah Palin."

Yeah, and rest assured, if the leftist pressholes are for Huckabee, that means he is the 'new McCain' and the new favorite pick of DemocRats in the Republican Primary. It's no wonder they like him. He caters to rapists, and other criminals, apparently. Thank GOD this means his chance of running is now DEAD. I guess the DemocRats will just have to find someone ELSE to support in the Rep primary. There's always Mutt "socialized healthcare" Romney.

About that reward- I was ready to pull my hair out listening to the continual reporting that the reward was $10,000 as stated by one reporter, and then another field reporter of the same affiliate would report that the reward had been raised to $100,000, while the studio reporter would then repeat that the reward was $10,000, even after the figure was raised again to $115,000, and which now stands at $125,000.

I would like to see an upstanding citizen be the one to turn this murdering POS in, and then donate the reward back to the police dept., or to the victim's families.

Yes, the person that posted bail stands to lose their bond money. I hope they do ! I hope they ARE NOT the person to collect the reward either. They deserve a worse fate, than losing their bond money, if they did in fact post bail funds on behalf of this vile scum.

Still nothing on the news about Judge (Save the Children) FELNAGLE'S role in all of this...
