Pro-Lifer Shot Multiple Times and Killed

Creative Minority Report are stating categorically that initial public reactions to his murder in the Huffington Post are chilling, comparing the outrage over the killing of Dr George Tiller, the US's most notorious late-term abortionist, with the less outraged reaction to this killing. James Pouillon, 63, was known as "just a nice, elderly gentleman who was disabled, used an oxygen tank and wore leg braces." As Fr Tim has pointed out, the BBC have not picked up on this story. The Guardian has, but I doubt their Life and Style section will fume about the atrocity like it did over the death of Tiller. It will be interesting to see how much comment this gets.
'State police at the Corunna post have confirmed a well-known anti-abortion activist was shot multiple times and killed this morning in front of Owosso High School. The victim's identity has not yet been released but the shooting occurred around 7:30 a.m., after most students were off the buses and safely inside the building, said Owosso schools transportation supervisor Jayne Campbell.

State police also confirmed that a suspect was taken into custody about 8:15 a.m. at the suspect's home...A black car can be seen parked at the corner of North and Whitehaven streets, where a portable oxygen tank is lying in a front yard next to a large sign bearing the image of a baby and the word "Life."'
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon him.

Yes the lack of news about this brave man's death is indeed chilling.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

And get this a local rag ran an online story (presumably they did in their print version too) off all the "high crimes and misdemeanors) the VICTIM committed over the years.

Readers were "enlightened" that he (cover your eyes) was fined for DRIVING WITHOUT A SEATBELT amongst a welter of other "spitting on the sidewalk" infractions."

A disgusting low of "journalism."

As one reader commented "gee, when didn't I see a similar 'rap sheet' for George Tiller -- innocent victim number one murdered, innocent victim number two murdered, and on into the thousands."

To their credit most readers jumped all over this item.
