What the fuck were you waiting for!?

Law enforcement laziness, corruption and overall incompetency has always been a very great bane of mine. For Christ's sake, these are the men and women who are supposed to be protecting us and defending the law; why don't they get a freakin' clue and learn to do it efficiently and actually prevent crimes and vile acts from being committed, rather than only ever punishing those who perpetrate them – after the deed has been done?

You may or may not be aware of the FACE Act. Basically put, it's a response to the incredible amounts of violence, hostility and, at times, plain terrorism that's aimed at abortion clinics around America compared to other health clinics. It basically states that any acts of vandalism, destruction or violence is automatically a federal crime.

About FACE

The federal FACE law is designed to protect both those providing and those receiving reproductive health care services. It forbids the use of "force, threat of force or physical obstruction" to prevent someone from providing or receiving reproductive health services. The law also provides for both criminal and civil penalties for those who break the law. More (PDF file, 48K)

Ie. if you're caught breaking windows, or gluing doors shut, or spray painting, or anything at all that isn't in the clinic's best interest, you're going to jail, illico presto.

The problem is ... if only this act had been dutifully enforced by law enforcement officers, there would be considerably less damages and violence done to abortion clinics these days ... and it also means Dr. George Tiller, murdered a few days ago, would very likely still be alive, as Scott Roeder, the deranged nutjob behind Dr. Tiller's murder and countless other acts of violence and vandalism towards abortion clinics over the years, would have been behind bars by then.

Below is a lengthy Rachel Maddow video (just over 14 minutes long, though half of it is an interview) which details the FACE Act's application and enforcement (or lack thereof), and what should've happened that would've prevented Roeder's vile act in the first place.

Well, first of all, that definitely clears up the anti-aborts' constant complaining about being persecuted when Roeder supposedly had no link to any groups or organizations, when evidence clearly shows he certainly was affiliated, to a degree, with Operation Rescue's head of affairs, that fat lying bitch Cheryl Sullenger. (Sorry ... couldn't resist. WAY too easy a target.) She is, after all, the woman who gave Roeder Tiller's personal information, such as his home address and phone number – information which was actually freely available on the Operation Rescue website prior to his murder. Yeah, they never saw it coming. Please.

He would call and say, 'When does court start? When’s the next hearing?'" Sullenger said. "I was polite enough to give him the information. I had no reason not to. Who knew? Who knew, you know what I mean?

Maybe the fact that he was a deranged nutcase with a long laborious history of breaking federal laws, vandalizing abortion clinics and with a criminal record holding more offenses than most folks can count, might've tipped you off that he might not have been a good individual to whom reveal personal information about Dr. Tiller's whereabouts. But then, Sullenger had also been thrown in jail for attempting to bomb an abortion clinic years ago, so I don't suppose she could feel all that bad anyway. He merely accomplished what she failed to do, obviously.

So basically, Roeder had been committing acts of vandalism and destruction on abortion clinics for over 9 years by the time of Dr. Tiller's murder, the FBI had been fed all the evidence they could possibly need: photos, license plate numbers, eyewitness accounts, and more reports than they can handle, and they still never acted?

Basically: hello? What the fuck were you waiting for!? It had to take a murder and a body for you to finally get off your damned asses and stop this lunatic?
