The man charged in the shooting death of abortion provider Dr. George Tiller warned Sunday that more violence is possible.
Scott Roeder, being held on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault in Tiller's killing one week ago, called The Associated Press from the Sedgwick County jail.
Tiller, whose Wichita clinic was among only a few in the U.S. performing third-trimester abortions, was shot while serving as an usher at the Lutheran church he attended.
"I know there are many other similar events planned around the country as long as abortion remains legal," Roeder said.
He would not elaborate [Roxana Hegeman, "Suspect in Kan. Doctor's Death Warns of Violence," AP via Google News, 2009.06.07].
It looks like we have Michael Sanborn's hypothetical come true: a suspected domestic terrorist in our custody declares he knows of more terrorist acts planned around the country. He refuses to talk to police, demanding his lawyer.
For those of you who believe torture is justified to protect Americans from terrorism, is it time to torture Scott Roeder to force him to tell us what he knows about future terrorist attacks?
Side question: should the AP stop taking this creep's calls? This media-hog is on a par with Osama bin Laden. Should a suspected terrorist like this have phone privileges that allow him to use the AP to issue further threats against the United States of America?
