Roeder went on to complain to the AP about his detention center being cold and how he didn't like the conditions. Sedgwick County Sheriff Robert Hinshaw said that Roeder is receiving appropriate medical treatment and is being treated the same as every other inmate. "It is after all a jail, but a modern state-of-the-art facility with professional staff," Hinshaw said.
What I find the most deplorable about Roeder is the fact he is a home-grown domestic terrorist. He did not get kidnapped or held hostage by foreign terrorists outside of the United States. Roeder's roots are with the U.S. ANTI Abortion groups and there are many extremist Americans with similar mindsets as Roeder's. He didn't have to go anywhere to be brainwashed. He was brainwashed right here in Heartland America. That is what makes him and people like him more dangerous. Consider the boy next door Timothy McVeigh. He murdered 168 people, primarily women and children.
Based on Roeder's phone calls, he does NOT think he did anything wrong when he murdered Dr. Tiller. Roeder does not think murdering other doctors or Pro Choice supporters is wrong. He has no remorse for the murder. Neither do many of the ANTI Abortion commenters on these articles. For some reason, they attempt to rationalize this murder. Additionally, Michelle Malkin and other extreme right wing pundits are attempting to spin any articles about Roeder portraying the media as PRO Choice, even though it is Roeder himself that is constantly contacting the media.
My take on this is, I don't think terrorists, whether domestic or international, should be treated differently. They are both culpable for their crimes. They should both be punished to the fullest extent of the law. This type of violence is unacceptable.
