Scott Roeder, confessed assassin of Dr. George Tiller, is a Loser in oh so many ways.
He did Operation Rescue’s dirty work and they threw him under the bus. Then his Ebay auction was blocked by babykillers. Then he confessed to the murder, thinking he had a rock-solid defense. Now his defense — the “Necessity Defense”, as in “The murder was A Necessity because Dr. Tiller was killing Teh Beebees” — has been declared Null and Void by his own lawyer:
Scott Roeder’s lawyer said Tuesday that the defense his client had hoped for in the murder trial of a Wichita abortion provider isn’t legal.
On Monday, Roeder publicly confessed to killing George Tiller to reporters from the Kansas City Star and the Associated Press. Roeder also said he hoped to use as his defense that killing Tiller was necessary to save the lives of the unborn.
“There’s no such thing as the necessity defense,” said Steve Osburn, head of the Sedgwick County Public Defender’s Office and Roeder’s lead counsel. “This is a fictional defense made up by these people.”
The fetus fetishists making things up? That’s a first.
