Huckabee's Killers

We've heard of the 'conservative' Huckabees' stand on immigration, his record on taxes and his help to get Drumond released. We also know that he released (parole or clemency) more prisoners than the six surrounding governors did during the same time-frame (about 1 every 4 days). Now we have a story of one murderer that Huckabee made eligible for parole (over the objections of everyone except the defense attorney it seems) because a fellow minister felt the murder was an accident. Below the fold is the story (via Drudge)
Gov. Huckabee probably never read the confession of a demented killer named Glen Green before he made the monster eligible for parole.
___ Green's confession is so depraved, its sadistic details so scary that no sane, responsible adult would consider him for parole.
___ If the governor didn't read the confession, he is guilty of dereliction of duty.
___ But if he read the confession and still considers Green deserving of parole, he's certainly unfit to hold office. Who would free a madman who beat an 18-year-old woman with Chinese martial-arts sticks, raped her as she barely clung to life, ran over her with his car, then dumped her in the bayou, her hand reaching up, as if begging for mercy?
___ We're publishing the gruesome picture of Green's victim on the front page because we believe her hand is reaching up to demand justice.
___ In usual fashion, Huckabee's office didn't even contact the victim's family about the clemency.
___ Although he's required to by the Constitution, the governor, as is his custom, won't say why he granted clemency to this crazed killer (over the unanimous objections of the Post-Prison Transfer Board).
___ Huckabee apparently listened to Green's minister (and a friend of the governor), who thinks the murder was an accident and Green was forced to confess.
The Leader
Read the entire thing, it is mind boggling how someone would think a person that did this is capable of being allowed to walk in society again. {granted I don't know all the facts and something could be radically different than what I believe or do know, but I would have to be proven wrong on that}
