In the wake of the murder of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas, the Attorney General has dispatched the U.S. Marshals Service to protect abortion providers:
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder dispatched the U.S. Marshals Service to protect “appropriate people and facilities around the nation” in the wake of the murder of late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas on Sunday morning.
U.S. Marshals spokesman Jeff Carter, who confirmed the new security measures, told FOX News, “I can not disclose the subjects of our security efforts as it is the policy of the U.S. Marshals not to comment on the status of any protective detail.”
Still no word on whether unarmed soldiers will be allowed to carry their sidearms in uniform to defend themselves:
At an afternoon news conference, police said the man who’s suspected in the shooting did not know the victims but shot them because of “ideological reasons.” The suspect was described as a convert to Islam who specifically targeted soldiers for the attack.Police Chief Stuart Thomas said he didn’t appear to be part of a larger conspiracy and appeared to have acted alone.
Federal agencies are on the case.
Whatever that means. Apparently it doesn’t mean Federal Marshall protection. Be nice if they were allowed to carry their sidearms (if they’re issued them), or at least have an MP standing outside with his.
Or have the FBI do an actual investigation into the pattern of recurring violence at recruiting centers (see the Michelle Malkin article.)
Personally, I’m tired of hearing how the assailant is a “new convert to Islam” and NOT hearing how he just returned from terrorist training camps in Somalia. He’s a murderer — just like the Doctor’s killer.
All you need to know right there.
