COMMENT: Pter­rafractyl has not­ed in a com­ment [3]that the chief sus­pect in the mur­der of Col­orado Cor­rec­tions chief Tom Clements [4] was affil­i­at­ed with white-suprema­cist prison gangs, accord­ing to author­i­ties. 

In turn, we have respond­ed [5] 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 [6], 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.

“Gov. Hick­en­loop­er Friends with Father of Dead White Suprema­cist” by Jere­my Mey­er; Den­ver Post; 3/22/2013. [7]

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. . . .
