37 Minutes to Justice


A Kansas jury deliberated just 37 minutes before convicting an anti-abortion activist of first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of an abortion provider.

The jury found Scott Roeder, 51, guilty of gunning down Dr. George Tiller, who operated a clinic in Wichita where late-term abortions were performed. Roeder, 51, faces life in prison when he is sentenced on March 9.

Good on yer, Kansas. Swift justice is sweet indeed.
Yes, the jury is to be commended, especially since there may be many in the community who will excoriate them.
Justice prevailed. My faith in our legal/judicial system has gone up a notch.
