Personally I hope Scott Roeder get's off with a light sentence.
Dr. Tiller was a monster and I'm glad he's dead. The world is much better off without him.
This was not an act of terrorism, period. Please do not cheapen the meaning of the word by trying to imply that it was.
That is the dictionary definition of a terrorist, but you earlier posted a legal definition consisting of 6 points. That's all fine and good, except that you are claiming the doctor to be a mass murderer, when the law says that he is not.
The problem with your arguments, Jerry, is that you use the legal definition of something only when it suits your purpose, which makes your argument two faced and invalid. You can't have it both ways. If you choose the legal definition of a terrorist, then you must also choose the legal definition for the abortion doctor. Anything else is patently dishonest.
