FBI Warned Twice by Abortion Clinic before Doctor Killed: Given Lic. #, Video, Name
From Amy Goodman's Democracynow.org program:

The clinic manager, calls himself "Jeff Pederson" to protect his identity, says he called the FBI and local law enforcement, but the vandal, Scott, was not arrested. The first incident was discovered on Memorial Day; the second, this past Saturday. Thats May 30th. Pederson and other clinic staff recognized the vandal as "Scott" from anti-abortion protests and gave the FBI his first name, his license plate number, and video footage of the incidents from a security camera at the clinic. Pederson told me that FBI agent Mark Colburn told him, quote, "The Johnson County Prosecutor wont do anything until the Grand Jury convenes." Well, the next day was Sunday, when Dr. George Tiller was killed, allegedly by Scott Roeder.

2. And the FBI will wash their hands clean of any responsibility.
This is a sad state that we are in. Thanks to Amy for the report.

3. Sound to me like the FBI has terrorist sympathizers in high positions
Teh FBI now needs to be investigated to root out the terrorists.

9. The Freemen are an anti-government group that any LEO should
be interested in. They're the type of people who shoot cops at traffic stops.

6. When I heard Rachel report the story...
I got the impression that this was another clinic's Dr. Not the clinic where Tiller worked. The article doesn't clarify that. Still, there is no excuse for the FBI's inaction. If the FBI had approached the killer Saturday evening, perhaps there would have been no Sunday shooting?

8. Yes, it was Tiller's clinic. They got him on tape twice.
They were told the first tape was no good enough quality, went out and got better cameras, and got him again.

7. Now, if this had been someone planning to exercise their 1st Amendment right of protest, against, oh
say something like the RNC, the FBI would have been all over that person like flies on shit.

Funny how that works...
