Now this is how you handle a terrorist:
After 37 minutes of deliberation, a jury today found Scott Roeder guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller.
Jurors also convicted Roeder of two counts of aggravated assault for threatening two men who chased him as he fled Tiller’s church after the shooting.
Sedgwick County District Judge Warren Wilbert set Roeder’s sentencing for March 9. Roeder faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
The prosecution said it will pursue a “hard 50” sentence, which means 50 years in prison with no chance of parole.
Read him his Miranda rights, gave him a fair trial and counsel of his choosing, and everything.
The trial also made clear that the terrorist Roeder had been influenced by then-Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline's unsuccessful attempts to prosecute Tiller for performing illegal abortions. This is a prime example of how anti-abortion "murder" rhetoric leads directly to actual murder.
