Aww, Poor Baby: Roeder Expected Operation Rescue To Help Him
Apparently Scott Roeder thought Operation Rescue would come to his aid in some way
, given the large amounts he's donated to them:
In a phone interview Friday, Roeder said he was upset at the president of Operation Rescue, Troy Newman, who had condemned the killing and said his organization had nothing to do with Roeder.
“He said that I never was a member and I never contributed any money,” Roeder said. “Well, my gosh, I’ve got probably a thousand dollars worth of receipts, at least, from the money I’ve donated to him.”
Roeder said he wrote Newman a letter from jail.
“I told him, ‘You better get your story straight because my lawyer said it’d be good for me to show that I was supporting a pro-life organization.’ ”
That'll help you in a murder case? Are you insane?
Operation Rescue, not wanting, I'm guessing, to be subject to RICO conspiracy charges, are trying to pretend they never knew this murderer. Unfortunate for them that Randall Terry jumped right in on the subject, in support of Roeder, back when it happened, enthusiastically praising the act of murder
. And there was also when they were talking about making Dr. Tiller's clinic their headquarters
. Stuff like that. Oh, did I forget that an Op Rescue official helped him stalk Dr. Tiller
? Roeder was in fact pretty deeply involved with Operation Rescue
Their real fear, I suspect, is that the extent of Roeder's connection will be more fully investigated and that he might not only implicate them further than they already have themselves, but that he'll link them to the outright, declared anti-abortion terrorists the Army of God
, which he also had contact with.
Considering what a blabbermouth he is
, this should get interesting.
