jury takes 37 minutes to find scott roeder guilty

I can’t imagine how hard it was for George Tiller’s family to sit in the courtroom and hear charming testimony like this from this remorseless sack of fundamentalist shit:

In his testimony, Roeder told jurors he had considered elaborate schemes to stop the doctor, including chopping off his hands, crashing a car into him or sneaking into his home to kill him. …

But in the end, Roeder told the jury, the easiest way was to walk into Tiller’s church, put a gun to the man’s forehead and pull the trigger.

But I commend the jury for not dicking around, and the judge for refusing to consider allowing a voluntary manslaughter conviction based on that “imminent danger to fetuses” nonsense. Well done.
