Tiller Assassin, Hero?!

Google the name of Dr. George Tiller’s assassin and the fourth result is “scott roeder hero”.

Hero? How about terrorist?

Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as

“…the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.” (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85)

The FBI further describes terrorism as either domestic or international, depending on the origin, base, and objectives of the terrorist organization. For the purpose of this report, the FBI uses the following definitions of terrorism:

Domestic terrorism refers to activities that involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any state; appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; to influence the policy of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States. [18 U.S.C. § 2331(5)]

Why this man is not being tried in Federal court (not to mention being allowed to pursue this pathetic defense) is beyond Madam.
