SCOTT ROEDER, ANTI-ABORTION DOMESTIC TERRORIST WALKS AT 102?
Yes he will walk again, a free man, but after 50 years at age 102 years? He is 52 years old now and will spend the next 50 years behind bars without the possibility of parole until the term is fully served. Quoting the sentencing judge, Judge Warren Wilbert, "if Roeder lives past 102, then he gets parole; and will also face a lifetime supervision after release? Icheoku says, what a way to send a message that crass intolerance resulting in the death of another, will not be tolerated and will be punished severely!
Scott Roeder, the Wichita Kansas anti-abortion domestic terrorist, who killed abortion provider, Dr George Tiller, for according to him, being 'babies-killer', was given a sentence of life with possibility of parole only after 50 years! This wily-eyed extremist would readily kill an adult human-being to prevent the evacuation/expulsion of unwanted fetuses from the wombs of women? Icheoku asks, what manner of logic on its head drives these anti-abortion lunatics who have no scruples taking the lives of other human-beings, including a medical doctor but have a strange infatuation to the unborn's life that they are prepared to kill to protect it? If really these people are concerned about the preservation and protection of life, why not the life of everyone and not just fetus-specific? Does it mean then, that to this people, the life of an abortion provider as in this case, is not a life worthy of similar preservation? Icheoku does not get it and would like anyone with a better understanding of the churning of the minds of the Scott Roeders of this world to please come to the rescue and throw some additional light on this? It is akin to the thinking in some Muslim sects that killing unbelievers to sanctify the earth of their unworthy earthly presence is an Allah-pleasing work of mercy?
Gladly enough though, the law is not afraid of nor is it intimidated by the Scott Roeders of this world, as it visits them with the toughest sentences allowable, whenever they are brought before it in chains and orange jump-suits or even undeserving two piece suits? In this case, the book was thrown at Scott Roeder as he got life with the 'Hard 50' sentence, in the first-degree murder of abortion provider Dr. George Tiller! Hurray! Most likely murderer Scott Roeder will never walk again a freeman and will come out of prison, dead as a door-nub; unless some miracle of longevity happens to make him see the magical age of 102 years? But this scenario is very unlikely and highly very improbable for a man with his quantum of rage and aversion to another fellow man? Icheoku is convinced that Scott Roeder will die a caged animal behind prison walls of a self-inflicted injury or a heart-attack, but will never live out his term of 50 years?
Extremism of any kind is dangerous and it does not matter who or for what it is being manifested. Moderation is the key and if you do not like another person or what that other does, use all the foul language you can to curse the person out if you must, but surely nothing warrants or is worth the taking of another's life including that of an abortion provider? Dr. George Tiller never forced any woman under gunpoint to procure an abortion; but was merely providing services to women in need of his medical intervention expertise, including those women who were raped and impregnated by their fathers, armed robbers, and other rapists? Could somebody ask Scott Roeder if he will like his daughter, if he has any, to give birth to a child conceived by through a rapist armed robber molestation or by himself, if he were an incestuous father? Sometimes, medical intervention on pregnancy could be for medical reasons including the health of the mother fetus-carrier, that sometimes makes it imperative that such fetus must be expelled in order to save the life of the host? Moreso, what does this Scott Roeder have against a woman's right to choose or decide what to do with her body and what to carry in it? His is a case of a self-serving closed-minded vermin who wanted to play God and decides for everyone what is allowable or what is not; but in this case bit more than he can chew by taking the life of another human-being! Scott Roeder claimed he is a Christian yet ignored the injunction of 'thou shall not kill' encapsulated in the ten commandment that was handed down to Moses? Yet we blame the Taliban for being so close-minded bigots?
The sentencing phase of the case in Wichita Kansas was very interesting and had its camera moments:- To the prosecutor, Scott Roeder yelled "The blood of babies is on your hands!" The prosecutor later described what Scott Roeder did in the following terms:- ''This was an act of terrorism, an act of brutality. It was abundantly clear this was an individual who chose to follow a path of lawlessness.'' And added, "Scott Roeder has no regrets and neither do I." Icheoku gives it up to this district attorney for bringing it down as it is and telling Scott Roeder to his face, to literally, go to hell? It will be recall that a jury of his peers found Scott Roeder guilty of first-degree murder after only 37 minutes of deliberations on January 29 2010 in the May 2009 killing of Dr. George Tiller in the foyer of a Wichita Kansas Lutheran church. The sentencing judge describing the heinous nature of the crime said, "The shooting in the church is heinous. He didn't kill him in the parking lot, he didn't go early enough to get him going into the church. Scott Roeder choose to kill Tiller in the very place that abhors violence." The rest is now history as barring a successful appeal, Scott Roeder will soon be forgotten in the zoo of prison inmates, somewhere in Kansas, where he will certainly spend the rest of his natural life, kept company by a guilty conscience which will keep asking him, WHY?
