The Seattle Times posted five jailhouse phone recordings of Maurice Clemmons this weekend. They’re absolutely chilling:
His voice is calm, matter of fact. He tells his wife, Nicole Smith, he’ll need a gun.
“I ain’t use to pack one, but every day where I go, I’m going to have one right in my front pocket.”
And if police cross him?
“It’s going to be the last time they (say) ‘Hey mister.’ Boom. Dead in they forehead.”
But on this day, Nicole is distracted, even disinterested in what Maurice has to say — she’s heard it all before.
Listen to them here.
