Fallen hero from Wilson High recalled


Last week I began a poll to determine if Crime Scene readers thought it would be appropriate to post a post-mortem picture of Maurice Clemons, the killer of four police officers in Lakewood, Washington on Nov. 29.

I’d say the jury’s still out on the photo. In any event, it turns out that Greg Richards, a 1985 graduate of Wilson High School in Hacienda Heights was one of the four cops who was tragically gunned down.
He’s the SGV Tribune’s “Hero of the Week.”

Photo purports to show dead cop killer Maurice Clemons

Two days after Maurice Clemons killed four Lakewood Washington police officers at a local coffee shop, Clemons was found in South Seattle.

Seattle police officers checking out a stolen car encountered Clemons and shot him to death when he approached.

Now a photo that could show the aftermath of that shooting is making its way around the Internet with the headline: “This is what happens when you decide to shoot cops.”

Needless to say the photo is pretty graphic.

The question here is should we post the crime scene photo?
