    "So far, we know they've provided him rides. They've provided him money, They've provided him places to stay. They've done things to distract us to send us in different directions," said Troyer.

    Officers believe Clemmons was shot in the abdomen during the attack on the officers at a Parkland coffee shop. The 37-year-old may have received medical help and money from friends or family, Troyer said. And police believe some of those questioned have misled investigators to help Clemmons remain at large, he said.

    "If this man goes out and kills another police officer or kills a citizen and these people have helped him get away, then I would expect the prosecutor would take a hard look at charging them as an accessory," Troyer added.

    Police are certain Clemmons was in a Seattle house on Sunday night, but was able to flee before police could contain the area. Police staked out that house overnight before SWAT team members determined early Monday that Clemmons wasn't there.

    Clemmons has had access to handguns, rifles and shotguns, Troyer said.

    Monday morning's realization that the suspect had not been cornered after all prompted police to fan out across the city, looking for any sign of Clemmons. Authorities posted a $125,000 reward for information leading to his arrest in the Sunday morning shooting rampage. Tip lines set in the case are (253) 591-5959 or (866) 977-2362.

    So the suspect is deranged. Possibly wounded. Certainly armed.
    But apparently took pains to insure no one except police were targets.
    The term Vendetta comes to mind.

    Naturally his family is helping him. They see this as an "us" vs. "them" issue.

    My issue is resource allocation. How much is being spent to catch someone who is not a threat to the public? If the suspect was shot in the torso he is probably a threat to no one.
    If it was four dead civilians, say working class Joes, would the police mount such a huge effort? Or would they shrug and decide they would catch the culprit when they found him, if ever?

    I never liked Clemmons, anyone who pitches for the Red Sox must be evil.

    Just one - kind of vital issue with this, Charles.... If we don't make every effort to defend those who put their lives on the line to protect us, why the hell should we expect them to protect us? Big picture - no police = anarchy. Simple. I would suggest that the police are far more worthwhile as individuals than the scumbag who shot 4 of the people who put their own lives in danger for you. We owe them.

    You have to be kidding?

    So you would rather just wait, assuming that the next person to die is not going to be a civilian or a child?

    This man should be hunted down like a dog at any cost and those helping aid him, as well.

    Thank God I don't count on you to protect my family!

    Of course they would. I have gone back and forth with the death penalty issue, but when I hear stories like this about CAREER CRIMINALS, it makes it hard not to be a proponent. I don't think I am alone there.

    You are not alone Ms. Chanel, I want to make love to your avatar.

    I can really stuff Christmas stockings with Frogen cheer.
