From the Justice Department …
The murder of Doctor George Tiller is an abhorrent act of violence, and his family is in our thoughts and prayers at this tragic moment. Federal law enforcement is coordinating with local law enforcement officials in Kansas on the investigation of this crime, and I have directed the United States Marshals Service to offer protection to other appropriate people and facilities around the nation. The Department of Justice will work to bring the perpetrator of this crime to justice. As a precautionary measure, we will also take appropriate steps to help prevent any related acts of violence from occurring.
While supposedly decried by Operation Rescue (and their ilk), this needs to be recognized as a direct result of their hateful activities. Apparently they maintained a “Tiller Watch” on their website – links to which have mysteriously disappeared since yesterday’s murder. Here’s something that the alleged murderer (Scott Roeder) posted on Operation Rescue’s site back in 2007 … and one of their sick, sick, sick videos … which they touted as their “hot new video about Dr. Tiller” back in 2007. Sick.
Reading this vituperation illustrates how prayer, in the hands of right wing control freaks is pretty much like a handgun.
Sick at heart, here … sick at heart.
