Man that killed Abortion Doctor, allowed manslaughter claim.

Sigh!

According the the mail times:

A judge has again refused to block confessed killer Scott Roeder from arguing his belief that the shooting death of a Kansas abortion provider was a justified act aimed at saving unborn children.
The 51-year-old Roeder has admitted killing Dr. George Tiller last May. He wants to present evidence that he did so in the honest belief that he was justified — a defense that could lead to a conviction on the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.

Prosecutors say that defense is invalid because there’s no evidence Tiller posed an imminent threat at the time of the killing.

But the judge dealt prosecutors a setback during a hearing Tuesday, saying that until the defense decides which evidence it will present, it’s difficult for him to rule on its admissibility.

What is the court system, the justice system and the human race coming to.

  1. The judge is obviously biased and should remove himself from the case.
    Our justice system is a joke, has been for many years.
    There was no imminent threat.
