Roeder pleads

Not Guilty:

A Kansas judge on Tuesday ordered an anti-abortion activist to stand trial in the death of a Wichita doctor who was gunned down at his church.

Scott Roeder, 51, pleaded not guilty after being bound over to trial on charges of first-degree murder in the death of Dr. George Tiller, who ran a women’s clinic in which he performed abortions. Tiller was shot to death May 31 as services began at Reformation Lutheran Church. Roeder also faces two charges of aggravated assault for threatening church members Gary Hoepner and Keith Martin.  [...]

Roeder was nailed as the shooter by witnesses who also testified that he’d been seen at the church the previous Sunday.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday, Gary Hoepner, an usher and 52-year member of the church, testified he was talking with Tiller before services when a man walked up to them, “put a gun right up to George’s head and shot it.”  [...]

Hoepner identified Roeder as the man he saw that day, and testified he had also seen him at the church the Sunday before the incident. Church members told him the man had placed a note in the church’s collection plate, Hoepner said, and that the same man had done so previously. Anderson also said he had seen the man at the church, saying he remembered the man was balding and “his clothes didn’t match very well.”

So it looks like Roeder was stalking Dr. Tiller, something it’s already common knowledge he was doing during Dr. Tiller’s court case.  He did so with the assistance of Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger, who reportedly said after the killing “Who knew??” what Roeder would do with the information she was giving him about Dr. Tiller’s every move.

I’m glad Roeder isn’t copping a plea, because it means he intends to put up a fight, which in turn means he might be ratting on old friends who he feels have  deserted him.  That he’ll be convicted is without question, but in the process I’d like to see him take as many of his douchebag friends down with him as possible, starting with the rotten shit-eating scum who helped him stalk Dr. Tiller.

The trial starts Sept.21.  Pass the popcorn.

    Hope they have extra security at the trial. I’m sure there are going to be some doctor-snuffing advocates who’ll want to try and bust “an innocent man” out of B. Hussein Osama X The Usurper’s anti-Christian death camp. *rolls eyes*

    He has a public defender, yes? Being broke and all.

    Would a public defender have the financial and other resources to subpoena Operation Rescue’s records and put them back together after they’ve been scrubbed/fucked up?

    Makes good sense that the defense would argue that he was goaded/enabled by others. How’s his lawyer going to back the argument up?

    And JAB, what I read about today’s outing was yeah, verrrry tight security at the courthouse.

    JAB, they won’t try to break him out, they will try to shut him up…then pin it on the pro-choice movement.

    You know Terry will be plotting something like this…he is terrified that the truth will come out.
