Awwww - poor widdle Scotty Roeder

Scott Roeder? He is the guy who was convicted of murdering Dr. George Tiller. From the Kansas City Star:

Scott Roeder files petition claiming that his rights have been violated
The man who killed Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller has filed a petition complaining that his rights have been violated and asking to be released from custody.

Scott Roeder, 52, of Kansas City, criticized the judge, the jail, prosecutors and his lawyers in a habeas corpus petition that he filed in Sedgwick County, Kan. A hearing is scheduled for June 4. Such a petition requires a judge to determine whether a person has been imprisoned lawfully and whether he should be freed.

Roeder was convicted of first-degree murder in January and sentenced April 1 to life in prison with no chance of parole for 50 years. That case is under appeal.

In the 24-page petition - seven of the pages handwritten - Roeder said that the judge's imposition of a $20 million bond, along with a suggestion that I might enact more violence if I make bond demonstrates heightened disregard for the presumption of my innocence. He also said that after his arrest, the judge "made a public spectacle of me, forcing me to appear on television without the assistance of counsel or court clothes".

I do not personally agree with what Dr. Tiller was doing -- third trimester abortions are murder, pure and simple. The foetus is a viable living entity at that stage and there are thousands of people who would dearly love to adopt that child and give it good home.

It speaks volumes that besides Dr. Tiller, there were only two other doctors in the USA who made this their practice at that time. That being said, to murder someone in cold blood; to shoot them in the face as they were in Church worshiping on Sunday is beyond the pale. I am sure that Mr. Roeder will have a long and successful career in prison and I wish him well with his Obamacare-funded anal reconstruction surgery every year.
