I agree witn you about the criminal justice system in general. The problem for Huckabee is that he not only did specifically intervene on behalf of releasing Dumond but he has hedged about this own involvement in it.


Pressed on the case in an interview on Monday on Fox News, Huckabee said it was the state parole board -- made up of appointees from Democratic Govs. Bill Clinton and Jim Guy Tucker -- that made the decision to free Dumond, not him.

"Should this guy have been let out in retrospect? No. But at the time, the parole board in making the decision to let him go, felt it was a prudent decision to make," Huckabee said.

Not everybody remembers it that way.

Former state Rep. Pat Flanagin, a Democrat, fought the release of Dumond because the Arkansas woman who was raped, Ashley Stevens, was a family friend from his home district.

He said Huckabee pressured the parole board to free Dumond despite a personal protest from Stevens, who during a meeting pressed her face close to Huckabee's and said this is how close Dumond was to her for an hour.

"It is even more so (like) Willie Horton, because he was given very ample warning about the guy, about his background, about his previous sexual offenses and a murder he was involved in previously," Flanagin said.

He also wrote Dumond that he hoped he would be paroled from prison.

Huckabee had been provided letters from the rape victims who asked that he NOT be paroled, that he would probably rape and murder again. (Letters at this link.)
