Roeder could be out in 5


As unbelievable as it may sound, in Kansas it’s possible that a guy could walk into a church, plant a bullet in someone’s head right in front of numerous witnesses, confess to the killing, and end up getting as little as 4 years for it:

The judge presiding over Scott Roeder’s murder trial said he could consider giving the jury an option of choosing a less severe charge than murder in the killing of a Wichita abortion provider.  […]

Wilbert told lawyers Friday that he couldn’t imagine a scenario that would allow Roeder to argue he was defending the lives of others. But the judge stopped short of legally ruling it out.

Under a conviction on voluntary manslaughter, Roeder could face four to six years in prison, compared to a life sentence if convicted of murder.

It’s an unlikely scenario, but even the fact that there’s a *chance* it might happen is pretty outrageous; I guess it all depends on the sanity of the jury (ie. whether it’s infested with fetus fetishists).   This judge has already denied Roeder’s attempt to use the “necessity defense“, so at least there’s that…??  Good grief.

Not like the other

Mich. Shooting Suspect Cuts Arm While in Jail - ABC News_1252807176205When Harlan Drake, the suspect in the double murder in Owosso yesterday, arrived at his new home in the county jug,  one of the first things he did was make a jabbering admission that he’d intended to kill a third victim as unrelated as the first two (Intended #3 having since left town), and then try to kill himself:

A prosecutor says the man accused of fatally shooting an abortion protester and business owner here has been taken from jail to a hospital Saturday with a self-inflicted wound to his arm.

When Scott Roeder, the suspect in the murder of Dr. George Tiller, arrived at hscott_roeder_060409is new home in the county jug, one of the first things he did was send out some anti-abortion pamphlets he got from the Army of God, then get on the horn with the media and state that killing abortion providers is justified, and warn that anti-choicers would kill again “as long as abortion remains legal”

“I know there are many other similar events planned around the country as long as abortion remains legal,” Roeder said.

One of these murders was politically-motivated and one was not.   You make the call.

Meanwhile, Christian Newswire?  You know where you can stuff this:

It’s too short a step to go from killing the unborn to killing in cold blood those pro-life advocates like Jim Pouillon

And having said that, I think we’re done here.

Damn fine rant

Bene D speak, you listen.


I just got home and was trying to get some more on the 5 W’s of Dr. Tiller’s murder this morning, and one of the first articles I surfed on to just stopped me in my tracks, astonished.

I would have thought that at this point, knowing that their violent rhetoric is what made this happen, even the batshit insane anti-choice freaks would know enough to dial it down a little… wrong.

Today Randall Terry (head of anti-choice terrorists Operation Rescue)  stepped up to the plate to say:

“George Tiller was a mass murderer and we cannot stop saying that,” Terry said. “He was an evil man — his hands were covered with blood.”

But the real insanity is that Terry’s worried about a backlash against anti-choicers:

Terry said he was now concerned that the Obama administration “will use Tiller’s killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions.”

“Our most effective rhetoric and actions” — which is to incessantly scream “baby-killer, Tiller the Killer, mass-murderer, blood on his hands” until some rabid, spittle-flecked, scripture-screaming psycho, whipped into a Jesus-driven frenzy, takes that rhetoric to its ultimate conclusion with a high-powered rifle.  How could it possibly play out any other way?

Oh, and this is really rich:  “Priest for Life” and Operation Rescue hangaround Father Frank Pavone (much-beloved by fetus fetishists everywhere including our own SUZANNE), had this to say:

“I am saddened to hear of the killing of George Tiller this morning. At this point, we do not know the motives of this act, or who is behind it, whether an angry post-abortive man or woman, or a misguided activist, or an enemy within the abortion industry, or a political enemy frustrated with the way Tiller has escaped prosecution. We should not jump to conclusions or rush to judgment.

Well, somebody “rushed to judgement” this morning, and made themselves not only judge, but jury and executioner.  And somehow I don’t think it was an “angry post-abortive woman”, but nice try, Father Frank.  IDIOT.

If these two quotes are any indication, in the coming days it should be interesting, if nauseating, to see what kind of  outrageously stupid and delusional statements the anti-choice whackjobs make about this tragedy.  For so long, they’ve been whipping themselves into derangement of such brain-damaged magnitude that they can’t help themselves.

I only hope that, the real face of anti-abortion terrorism having been revealed once again, anti-choicers will be more marginalized than ever as the sane and rational recoil from them in loathing and disgust.

Meanwhile, I still shoot back.

Dr. Geoge Tiller shot to death this morning

…as he was on his way into church.

Anti-abortion extremists Operation Rescue, who have harrassed Dr. Tiller for years, claim they’re “Shocked, I tell you, shocked!

I say:  fuck you, motherfucks.  At the very least, your rhetoric contributed to this.  Fuck you!
