Question of the Day
Clements‘ funeral was Sunday, and hundreds of law enforcement officers, corrections workers, lawmakers and state dignitaries attended a memorial service for him Monday. Clements was remembered as a prison system reformer with a strong belief in redemption and who worked to reduce the use of solitary confinement in Colorado prisons.
Lisa Clements said at the memorial that her husband of 28 years would want justice as well as forgiveness.
Ebel is the son of Hickenlooper’s longtime friend, attorney Jack Ebel. Evan Ebel was on the governor’s mind when he spoke to Clements before offering him the prisons job, citing the younger Ebel’s prison sentence in solitary confinement as an example of needed prison reform.
Hickenlooper has said he did not mention Evan Ebel by name in that conversation, and there was no indication that his relationship with Jack Ebel played a role in the shooting. Hickenlooper also said he did not having any role in Evan Ebel’s parole in January.
Evan Ebel’s time in prison included solitary confinement, which his father testified to lawmakers two years ago was destroying his son’s psyche. While in prison, Ebel was a member of the 211 Crew, a white supremacist prison gang in Colorado, according to law enforcement officials.
