It took me a while to read through this thread and finally someone said it. (apologies if I missed it on another post)
My 2 cents. A person broke the law. He will be caught and punished, and he knew this when he set out this morning. I suspect he intended to surrender on the spot, but got scared. (He did not snipe from a hill or wear a disguise).
He decided that losing his freedom (or his life) to stop Tiller was a price he was willing to pay.
Tiller was the most vile and vicious abortionists that I have ever heard of, and I am unable to find any sympathy for him or those who loved him.
The problem here is that liberal bigots will paint pro-lifers with a broad brush and it will now essentially be illegal to hold pro-life views or own weapons.
They are quick to excuse the terrorist Muslims for their atrocities (saying it was the actions of America that drove them to it) and yet, they will send this guy to GITMO for water-boarding and execution (without the noting the real atrocities that Tiller has committed that drove this person to his act).
