Homegrown Terrorism Strikes - Abortion Provider George Tiller MURDERED In His CHURCH

From The Wichita Eagle:
Suspect in slaying of abortion provider George Tiller being returned to Wichita

WICHITA - A suspect in this morning's fatal shooting of abortion doctor George Tiller is in custody and on his way back to Wichita, Wichita Deputy Police Chief Tom Stolz said this afternoon at a news conference.

The 51-year-old male suspect was arrested about three hours after the shooting without incident on I-35 in Johnson County, Stolz said.

Police did not release the suspect's name.

The investigation is in its "infancy stages," Stolz said. He said the incident appeared to be an isolated act.

Tiller, 67, was shot just after 10 a.m. in the lobby of Reformation Lutheran Church at 7601 E. 13th St., where he was a member of the congregation.

Stolz said Tiller was shot in the foyer of the church. There were three or four eyewitnesses, he said. Six to 12 people were in the foyer at the time of the shooting.

Two men attempted to apprehend the suspect, but he pointed a gun at them and threatened them before fleeing, Stolz said.

Police anticipate the suspect will be charged with murder and two counts of aggravated assault. Police will discuss with the Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office on Monday to determine if additional charges, including federal charges, are warranted.

Tiller was serving as an usher at the church, one of six ushers listed in the church bulletin. He was handing out bulletins to people going into the sanctuary minutes before being shot.

And will those that fostered the climate in which this man was MURDERED take RESPONSIBILITY for what they created?

Of course not.

This is another one that i'll have to add to the media page. In fact, I have two more entries to add to the violence list.

I want to know more about this case first though.

But this sickness seems to be getting worse. Within the last year or so...we have had at least 3 church murders.... and it looks like 2 were politically/religiously motivated. If you can't feel safe in Church... then where can you feel safe?

And have you heard about the way Republicans are celebrating this? Sick!

Not only that....all afternoon I listened to Republicans Talk Show hosts as they actually (in a roundabout way) tried to justify the murder...and seemed to be giving a wink and a nod to the shooter.

Like I have been stating... there is no limit to what they'll do.
That's why they scare the Hell out of me.

And of course the Republican media machine won't take responsibility for sending these nutballs into a frenzy. The ones doing the instigating... (Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly and the rest) are just as crazy as the ones who they encourage (in a roundabout way) to pull the trigger. So I guess we can't expect them to be responsible or accountable when this madness takes place.
