Is Scott Roeder going to present a "justifiable homicide" defense?


Hmm, still sounds pretty iffy, if you read the AP's story. Roeder, accused of murdering abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, has been talking to a prominent defense attorney who's represented others accused of attacking doctors and clinics. Michael Hirsh has said justifiable homicide should be a possible defense in these kinds of cases.

ALSO: Judy Thomas has a story about the FBI interviewing members of a Bible study group that Roeder attended.

Among the topics: The Old Testament, their Hebrew roots and the “secret societies” attempting to control government and culture.
