There is a "strong possibility" that more people will be charged following the fatal shootings of four police officers in Washington state last weekend, officials said.

Two people accused of helping the suspected gunman evade authorities appeared in court Tuesday, and a third also may be charged, authorities said.

Maurice Clemmons, 37, was shot and killed by Seattle, Washington, police early Tuesday. Police believe he entered a coffee shop Sunday and shot four Lakewood, Washington, officers to death as they met before their shift began

    Pathetic!!!! Blame everyone else except the last ones that had a chance to stop this. Arkansas has NOTHING to do with this. Washington has ALL to do with this. Their system has ALL the flaws. Don't see a judge before you are released, give me a break. WASHINGTON is flawed, not Arkansas. Blame it all on one man, no judges were ever mentioned. It's a sad day when politics make the biggest part of who you side. SADDDDDDDDD. I'm embarressed to be American. Politics decide who you blame???? WAKE UP!!!!!!@$@# this, I hate the people in this country.

    Anderson I watched your special on Maurice Clemmons. I like your comment that you are keeping them honest. It seems that is a selective statement. I await your segment on keeping the cop that murdered Maurice Clemmons "honest."

    Since when do we allow the police to be judge, jury, and executioner of a suspect?
    Read the account of his arrest. Do you honestly feel that the shooting of Mr. Clemmons was justified based on his actions towards the cop?

    What about the actions of the celebrating cops? It is this attitude that makes those accosted by police angry and dangerous.

    So now we hear the piling of of charges to make him look like Attilia the hun. How do we know that any of this is true. It appears we can not count on you to "keep them honest" since you are facilitating the negative police propaganda.

    This is just an excuse for states to argue to keep OTWs behind bars while allowing whites access to swinging doors.
