    Justifiable homicide defense eyed in Roeder's case - Yahoo! News

    Did not read it all just enough to see this turd has a lawyer that thinks such a defense will work. Unbelievable. I hope if they try this he gets an even LONGER sentence.

    I am absolutely against elective abortions. They are wrong on all counts. But claiming one is justified in murdering a doctor that preforms a LEGAL procedure no matter how much you oppose the procedure is absolutely ignorant.

    I will read this in a sec.

    It absurd that anyone would even defend him let alone waste the time and money on a trial.
    So I guess if someone shot him they are justified as well because they are protecting doctors of future shootings.

    No, the turd most likely has a lawyer who is taking his money and therefore has the duty to come up with the best defense his client will, hopefully, cooperate with or at least agree to. Whether it's likely to succeed is irrelevant, if it's the best he's got. In that case, it's just a job.
    Or less likely but possible, the lawyer's another crackpot belonging to and paid for by the extreme lunatic fringe Roeder belongs to and they are using him to get publicity for the Cause. The birfers find lawyers who are also True Believers, after all. :cuckoo:

    Take a good long look at the picture by the article. It's an example of fuckus stupidus - branch of homo sapiens, regrettably.

    The lawyer sounds like a one-trick pony, he has this wacky defence theory and is busy peddling it around the various jurisdictions.

    Interesting theory. It wont fly. But as a defense attorney, sometimes we have to be creative to do our job. Everyone has a right to be defended. not just the people you like.

    Thats such a bogus defense though. I understand you're a lawyer and have some empathy for the guy but murder is murder in my book.

    Hence why i dont like abortion or the death penalty....although child rapists make me question my death penalty stance.

    No, not the guilty. The fact that there are lawyers willing to try and defend people like this man boggles my mind. How do they sleep at night knowing they are trying to put murderers and rapists back on the street?

    Most especially the guilty. The fact that you think no one deserves a right to defend themselve is what boggles my mind. John Adams defended the soldiers involved in the Boston Massacre, he even got a few of them off. Just because you dont like what they did doesnt mean they are any less entitled to certain rights than you are. The only time they can lose rights is with due process of the law.

    I'm not in favor of abortions. I have nothing good to say about them or the doctors that perform them. I'm talking about selective abortions - not something that is really a medical problem for the pregnant woman. I'm also against murder. Shooting somebody in cold blood just because you disagree with them is never justified. I hope this criminal gets the electric chair. Lethal injection would be too kind in his case.
