COMMENT: Pterrafractyl has noted in a comment that the chief suspect in the murder of Colorado Corrections chief Tom Clements was affiliated with white-supremacist prison gangs, according to authorities.
In turn, we have responded that, if true, this raises more questions than it answers.
Now, it turns out that the Governor of Colorado is close friends with the suspect’s father, with whom he worked at an oil company. Governor Hickenlooper says that he mentioned the younger Ebel to Clements when he interviewed for the job.
The suspect’s father had contributed to Hickenlooper’s election campaign.
This superficially reminds us of the case of John Hinckley, the neo-Nazi who was convicted of shooting Ronald Reagan and whose family were close to George H.W. Bush, as well as being in the energy business.
EXCERPT: Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said Friday he is close friends with the father of the white supremacist who is the focus of the investigation into the killing of one of his cabinet members and of a pizza delivery man.
But the governor vehemently denied he had anything to do with the release of parolee Evan Ebel from prison earlier this year. Ebel was killed Thursday after a chase and shootout with Texas authorities.
Ebel’s father, Jack, is an attorney who lives in Boulder. Hickenlooper said he has known Jack Ebel for years. They worked together at an oil company when Hickenlooper was a geologist, and they have stayed close.
He also said he knew that Ebel’s son was in prison and that the family had been upset that he had spent a large amount of time in solitary confinement. . . .
. . . .He did say he mentioned the younger Ebel to Clements. . . .
. . . . Hickenlooper said when he interviewed Clements for the director job he did mention that he knew someone whose child was in administrative segregation. . . .
. . . . Jack Ebel did donate to Hickenlooper’s campaign for governor. . . .
