George Tiller cannot rest

I have a sketch to sell you. It depicts David and Goliath, post the bloody decapitation of Goliath by the triumphant David. Except, in this sketch, Goliath is named Tiller. The body - missing its head - is labeled "child-murdering industry."

Will you buy it?

Well, if you're one of the far-right extremists that think Scott Roeder should be canonized, you certainly are snatching them up. Even more so, because the imprisoned, "alleged" murderer/"suspect" responsible for the assassination of Dr. George Tiller has signed the sketches in order to draw more money. All this cash is going to - you probably guessed it - Roeder's defense fund!

From a legal perspective, the prosecution really can just sit on their hands or play solitaire between now and the trial date and still win the case. Strangely enough, Roeder never entered a plea. He's not saying whether he believes he's guilty or...not guilty. Yet, he's bold enough to sign pictures cheering on the fact that he slaughtered a law-abiding citizen. Also strange, that I didn't realize, is that prosecutors in the case have opted not to go for the death penalty. Though, if they went for it, not only would they get it, but they would make this man a martyr. And that we do not need. There are already enough people that find him ethereal.

What do you think about this case? 


Love and Lyte,
