"Kids Who Kill" Still Haunts Huckabee


Not long after the 1998 school shootings at Jonesboro Middle School in Arkansas, which left three students and a teacher dead in what was then one of the worst acts of school violence in the country, then-Gov. Mike Huckabee signed a book deal for "Kids Who Kill," published that same year by B&H Publishing Group.

The book deal sparked criticism, fury, and resentment from families and other community members affected by the tragedy who claimed the governor was profiting from the violence. Ten years later, as Huckabee campaigns for the Republican presidential nomination, the hard feelings haven't disappeared.
