Seattle, Washington (CNN) -- Investigators searching for the suspected killer of four Seattle-area police officers have rounded up several of his relatives and friends to keep them from helping him escape, a sheriff's spokesman said Monday.


These folks are as delusional as Clemmons. Someone's shot in the gut after killing FOUR cops, and you really think getting him out of the state will end his worries? You think the Idaho cops would back-burner a manhunt for this guy because it didn't happen to "their" cops?

Also, snitchin' code or not, I can see what might motivate a relative to help hide someone accused of shooting one person. But four people? four COPS? That's when I'd say, Sorry cousin, you're on your own here.

A little clarification to my closest and dearest friends:

You know those times when I said, "if you ever need anything, just tell me?"

Just so we're clear: If you shoot four cops, I'm not helping you escape.

Glad we got that in the open.

I imagine the family was probably scared out of their gourds; this man from what I hear, had been terrorizing his own family for far longer. But if this isn't the case, it might be this: I was having a discussion about this with my coworkers today and I recalled something that some of my freinds from Louisiana once told me. Specifically, they are from North Louisiana, which is practically Arkansas, which from what I understand is where the shooter's family is from. Over there, there is a cultural trait where blood really is thicker than water, and the ingrown suspicion of the government is such that, even if someone does commit a crime, the family still will go out of its way to protect one of their own.

To put this in contrast, Ed Troyer, the spokesman for the Pierce County Sheriff's Department early on reported that one person had call their relatives claiming that they were the shooter (he was not, it was a "joke") and that he needed "help." The whole family turned right around and dialed 911.
