Suspect in abortion doctor’s murder warns of more violence

Scott Roeder has been charged with one count first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault in connection with the George Tiller shooting death.

Scott Roeder, who is being held in jail in Sedgwick County (Kan.) for the murder of Dr. George Tiller, who was shot and killed a week ago while attending church in Wichita, called the Associated Press to warn of more violence so long as abortion remains legal.

Tiller was one of the few doctors in the country who performed late-term abortions.

Roeder did not elaborate on what he meant by future violence, nor would he answer a reporter’s question as to whether he’d shot Tiller.

  1. Substitute a few words here and there and he could be renamed a terrorist. I’m wondering why terrorist language seems to be reserved for certain people (like middle-easterners) rather for certain actions (like killing for a cause with plans for more violence orchestrated by a group).
