Scott Roeder Court Video Shows Nonchalant Attitude
Watch the following video of George Tiller’s suspected murderer and tell me if you don’t see something wrong with this picture.
Let’s say, for argument’s sake, that Roeder actually did kill Tiller. Does that guy look like he has even a shred of remorse? It sounds like he’s getting directions to a restaurant, not being informed of when his next court date is. Chilling stuff.
And, by the way, the folks at Operation Rescue supplied Roeder with information about Tiller’s court dates…
Roeder apparently kept track of the state prosecution against Tiller through a senior member of Operation Rescue, the anti-abortion organization.
At the time of Roederâ€™s arrest Sunday afternoon along Interstate 35 in Johnson County, a television station captured the vehicle on video. There on the dashboard was a note that read â€œCherylâ€ and â€œOp Rescueâ€ with a phone number.
Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser for Operation Rescue out of Wichita, said Tuesday that she has spoken to Roeder in the past, but she said he would initiate the contact. She said she hasnâ€™t had any recent contact with him.
Sullenger served about two years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to bomb an abortion clinic in California in 1988. She has since renounced violent action.
She said Roederâ€™s interest was in court hearings involving Tiller.
â€œHe would call and say, â€˜When does court start? Whenâ€™s the next hearing?â€™â€‚â€ Sullenger said. â€œI was polite enough to give him the information. I had no reason not to. Who knew? Who knew, you know what I mean?â€
Yes. Who knew?
