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.

Justice, not so blind?

If this is true, this is very sad.

Justice concludes black voters need Democratic Party, U.S. blocks N.C. city’s nonpartisan vote is the headline from the Washington Times

KINSTON, N.C. | Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.

WTF??? Thats worse than Lindsey Lohans Tan.

The Justice Department’s ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their “candidates of choice” – identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

I think there are man things wrong with the voting system, but this is just terrible.

last time I checked voting was not mandatory in this country and nor should it be the the justice system get involved. Phish this makes the Afghan election look like its on the straight and narrow.

The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters’ right to elect the candidates they want.

Well then geez, get a ACORN bus in there and it shoudl solve the problem.

“To begin with, ‘nonpartisan elections’ is a misconceived and deceiving statement because even though no party affiliation shows up on a ballot form, candidates still adhere to certain ideologies and people understand that, and are going to identify with who they feel has their best interest at heart,” said William Cooke, president of the Kinston/Lenoir County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

Mr. Cooke said his group does not take a position on this issue and would not disclose his personal stance, but expressed skepticism about the Justice Department’s involvement.

Well I feel like I just woke up in the the 1940’s

Police officer faces no charges on allegedly giving away Texas neighbor’s items on Craigslist

bad_neighborI had a friend send me this story this morning

Sherry Johnson Huwitt, saw some strangers outside her Texas home loading her family’s basketball goal into a truck in the early-morning darkness.

WTF?

When she confronted them, they told her the item had been listed for free on the Craigslist. Sherry spoke to her families and none of them had said they placed the ad. Creepy

Huwitt told the men to take the goal because her husband planned to replace it.

But later someone else took a tetherball goal.

Now, I would be really pissed off

Hewitt then contacted Craiglist, as she should have and she was told the ad came from an e-mail account belonging to one of her neighbors, Arlington police Officer Chad Hickey.

Oooo Hickey, you got some explaining to do, son!!!

Initially Texas police filed a report listing the incident as a forgery, but officers acknowledged at the time they weren’t sure what the correct offense would be.

But it gets worse, this scumbag of a neighbor is going to get off.

The district attorney reviewed the case and “determined that it did not meet any of the elements of the criminal offense of the penal code,” said Sgt. Stan Davis.

Seems to me like the DA and the Po-Po need to find something, arrest and prosecute this scumbag. This is just all sorts of wrong.
