A suspect is in police custody following an hours-long shooting standoff at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, where at least one police officer and two civilians were killed Friday.

“The perpetrator is in custody,” Mayor John Suthers declared just after 5 p.m. Mountain time — more than five hours after an active shooter was first reported at the health-care clinic, spawning confusion that lasted through the afternoon over whether the gunman was at large or holed up at the medical facility with staff and patients.

The suspect was identified by the Colorado Springs Police Department as Robert L. Dear. Police were trying to determine his motive after his capture at the clinic. They said the suspect was armed with a long gun and also brought into the building several “items” that could have been explosive devices.

Besides the three deaths, at least four other police officers and five civilians were injured. *Authorities said those individuals were all in good condition.

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs said the officer killed was Garrett Swasey, 44, who had been with the campus police department for six years and responded to the initial reports of an active shooter.

...

Health centers associated with Planned Parenthood have been the target of threats and violence because of the organization’s role in providing abortions and lobbying for reproductive rights. Abortion rights groups say threats against abortion providers rose sharply this summer in the wake of an undercover “sting” mounted by an antiabortion group that filmed one of its videos at a clinic in Denver.

At least four Planned Parenthood clinics have been targeted with arson since the videos were released. The increase in threats has led abortion rights groups to increase cooperation with local police and the FBI.



An assumably pro-life person kills other people. Sigh.

Do we really need a thread every time someone shoots up some people? It's just kind of depressing at this point. It's not like spreading the word is going to make it stop.

If only the foetuses had guns.


but also someone on facebook raised the good point that there's no way this will be reported as Christian extremism.

http://newsthump.com/2015/11/28/good-guy-with-a-gun-fails-to-prevent-2708th-successive-mass-shooting/

America is beginning to wonder precisely when a good guy with a gun is actually going to prevent a mass shooting.

The good guy with a gun has been cited as an effective deterrent against firearm homicide, but has thus far failed to save any of the 174,000 Americans killed by firearms since 2000.

With another three dead and eleven wounded this morning, some Americans have started to wonder where the heck this good guy actually is.

Some dissenting voices have begun to question if he even exists.

However, NRA spokesman Simon-Bob Williams insisted the strategy was sound.

“If fewer people were armed we’d actually have more mass shootings, not less”, he told us, with his eyes pointing in different directions.

I'm pro-life in that I want people to make the necessary decisions prior to conception, so each pregnancy is a wanted pregnancy and abortion largely becomes a non-issue. I'm pro-choice because I believe that women should have the right to choose, at least up to a reasonable point.

In short I don't support abortion, but I acknowledge it and won't support total elimination of it either.

I'm sure some will pick that apart but it's how I feel.

Abortion is bad. Everything that would happen if abortion were illegal would be way worse. Therefore I am pro-choice.

This is perhaps the most reasonable stance I've encountered; I definitely agree.

True they probably were instructed to not fire as much at him or something because he's white
