Odd license plate number. 225 BAB. Could have been Tiller’s tally.

Strange.

You'd think that even an amateur assassin would know to use or stolen car — or to make their escape on a bicycle.

It would have been better for the pro-life movement if this fool offed himself. Now there will be a trial and all this opportunity for the media to paint the pro-life movement’s public image for years. I can’t believe the fools on here celebrating this.

When I read he had been killed, nary a tear popped into my eyes. I can’t help but think he’s been paid back for the hundreds of infants he has butchered. Hope he enjoys hell. Too bad, he could have actually saved people instead of killing infants.

Yeah, wait until you find out this guy’s a staunch Democrat. He voted Obama.

Trial and acquittal Tiller went on trial in March 2009, charged with nineteen misdemeanors for allegedly consulting a second physician in late-term abortion cases who was not truly "independent" as required by Kansas state law.

The case became a cause célèbre for both supporters and opponents of abortion rights. Columnist Jack Cashill compared the trial to the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi war criminals, while NYU Professor Jacob Appel described Tiller as "a genuine hero who ranks alongside Susan B. Anthony and Martin Luther King Jr. in the pantheon of defenders of human liberty."

On March 27, 2009, Tiller was found not guilty of all 19 misdemeanor charges stemming from some abortions he performed at his Wichita clinic in 2003. (Who ever said they had intelligent jurors in Kansas)

My guess is he knew he would be caught. Probably he just didn’t want to surrender on the spot.

So Tiller is killed in a Lutheran church. I wonder how he rationalized what he was doing with the Christian faith. It seems to me he was outside the pale of any possible interpretation of Christianity.

Kids are being shot down in Chicago daily. I don’t see any thing close to this by law enforcement to catch the perpetrators. Maybe there’s special rules for white male abortionists.

Maybe I missed something, but I haven’t seen any “fools” celebrating it.

George Tiller was a despicable human being, and I don’t see any point in pretending otherwise, which would be sheer hypocrisy.

But that doesn’t make it right to shoot him, and I haven’t seen anyone saying that.

Wouldn’t it be odd if the killer really intended to kill anyone, just as long as it was done in a church...and he didn’t even know who Tiller was?

Just a thought but we FReepers should show a little extra caution on threads dealing with this event both now and in the future, maybe just be a bit more careful what you post.

More now than ever, these are the threads that will garner attention from unwelcome prying eyes, you never know who is reading them and for what purpose

Again just a cautious thought :)

I’d have said, “hats off to the cops,” if they had been on time to stop Tiller from murdering babies and forever damaging young girls upon whom Planned Parenthood and Liberals prey.

The church in question is part of the liberal mainline ELCA. There were probably no theological issues with his line of work, and he probably gave well at collection time.

I wonder how many doctors were murdered in this country in the last year for various reasons. Dozens? Hundreds? It only seems to be national news when a protected icon of the left is involved. I don't condone murder, but the media elevating this all too common occurrence to what will no doubt be MSM talking points for the next week plus is demented. I think the shooter was sick. I think the man who got shot was sick as well.

On the other hand, if it turns out the guy who killed Tiller is a Muslim we’ll get to see some very interesting media spin on this one, eh?

It’s a murder just like any other murder, no more, no less, and should be handled as such by the Wichita PD.

The fact that the deceased made his living killing babies should not make his murder any more egregious.

I’d argue that since he valued life with such disdain, that I can understand how some might take solace in the fact that he was murdered.

That would be a curious spin. If I recall, Islam does not condone abortion.

This plays very conveniently into the hands of PP and NARAL. Tiller was getting to be a liability. Now he'll be a martyr.

Murdered in a church, in cold blood.

Can you write a better scenario for prochoice propaganda?

Let me guess: The killer gunned down Tiller in a "gun-free" zone.

Those laws work soooo well.

Well, the kids in Chicago are not being shot in a place with huge numbers of witnesses that can see the vehicle and license plate on the car as it drives away....
