Anti-Abortion Extremist Sentenced to 19 Years
http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGBBH2JTVAE.html

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A man who once claimed to be on a mission from God to kill abortion providers was sentenced Thursday to 19 years in federal prison for mailing hundreds of letters with fake anthrax to women's clinics.


Clayton Lee Waagner, 48, was convicted in 2003 of mailing the letters and of posting a message on an anti-abortion Web site claiming he'd been following clinic employees and was "going to kill as many of them as I can."

At his trial, Waagner called himself a terrorist and said people who provide abortions deserved to be shot.

Waagner sent many threatening letters from a FedEx facility in Philadelphia in late 2001 - during the height of the anthrax scares following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks - and after he'd escaped from prison. He spent 10 months on the run before he was recaptured. As a fugitive, Waagner was placed on the FBI's most-wanted list.

14. and the headline only says
"extremist". The guy's a terrorist. Even he knows it. But the MSM won't use that word with anyone connected with the right wing and the Republican party.

16. they never acknowledge the Christan terrorists
The media's lack of honesty is nothing new. Acts of Christian terrorism occur regularly in the United States.

2. Only 19 years?
""going to kill as many of them as I can." "

That guy is crazy! He should be spending the rest of his life in an insane asylum.

4. He's no Christian
regardless of what he might claim to identify with.

He's no more Christian than the Al Qaida members are Islamic.

5. such a tiny little article about a right-wing terrorist extremist. why
didn't they make an example of him?

because THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT WOMEN, THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN THE LAW, AND THEY WANT TO SWEEP THEIR OWN FREAKS UNDER THE RUG.

7. Because he's right wing
If he were left wing, you could pretty much guarantee that he'd get ten years to life.

Man Who Spent 35 Years in Prison for Stealing TV Finds Freedom Frustrating


http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGBLBY5YMAE.html

GEORGETOWN, Ga. (AP) - As hard as it was to spend 35 years in prison for stealing a black-and-white television, Junior Allen has found freedom frustrating, too.

Despite extensive prison records in North Carolina, where he has spent more than half his life as inmate No. 0004604, Allen has been unable to establish his identity in rural Georgia, where he now lives with his sister, or in Alabama, where he was born 65 years ago to sharecropper parents.

The month long effort to get a birth certificate and photo ID only hints at the new challenge he faces - that of transforming himself from less-than-model inmate to average senior citizen.

"It's like I never existed," Allen says. "I went to Columbus, Georgia, and they said I had to go to Alabama. I went to Alabama and they said I had to go to Georgia."

I want to thank you though for not use the term Pro Life to describe the term to these defective mouth breathers.

17. I hope worse happens to him in prison.
Of course, he'll never have to worry about carry a rapist's baby to term.

18. I don't wish rape on anyone
Even this guy. Prison rape is as bad as any other kind of rape, in some ways worse, because it is condoned and joked about by so many.

20. Good for you.
I'm not there yet. I've been a victim myself. Upon review, I realize my comment may have sounded flippant, but sometimes i think it is the only way some people will open their eyes to other people's reality.
