You're absolutely right, but the left has a cause that is popular, or popular with the press, at any rate, so that makes it OK.
In any case, we're better than they are! Violence is much more acceptable on the left; look at their "anti-globalization" riots.
Still, I think we have to avoid going overboard in our apologies; we, after all, did not encourage murder, do not condone it, and our principles do not permit it. So, in a sense, there's really nothing to apologize for.
I agree 100% with your stmt. Why are so many on this thread soooo concerned with what the left thinks? Who gives a rats’ a$$. The man was shot and killed plain and simple. Find the perp and bring him to justice. How is his murder any different than those crimes perpetrated by environazies or animals rights freaks. The pro-life movement should not be concerned with what the left thinks.
