FBI Failed To Act On Tip About Abortionist Killer

June 4. 2009

FBI Director Robert Mueller

The FBI once again, engaged in its famed criminal negligence in not intervening in the unlawful conduct of a violent stalker, that went on to murder another human being. Once again, the FBI has blood on its hands. Last week, Scott Roeder, stalked and murdered abortion doctor, George Tiller, where the physician attended church. Now comes word the FBI received numerous formal complaints and evidence from another clinic regarding Roeder and simply sent an agent to tell him to stop his misconduct, which any psychologist knows, does not work.

Any stalker exhibiting all the obsessive, dangerous traits Roeder did, was not going to give up that easily. Stalkers will behave for a little while and when they believe the coast is clear, take the criminal misconduct to new heights, angry they were reported to the authorities. There is only one way to deal with an obsessive stalker and that's to lock them up or institutionalize them in a bid to correct their terrible behavior. Most psychologists agree on this. The mere fact they are stalking another says they have lost all sense of reasoning in engaging in conduct most would not do, as it is completely illegal.

As I wrote previously, stalking often leads to violence or murder. Law enforcement has seen this destructive pattern emerge enough that they should know better by now. To the anti-abortion activists, I agree abortion is wrong, but whatever you do in this life, you should eschew breaking the law. Murder, violence, stalking, harassment and property destruction is wrong.


Before Tiller Murder, FBI Got Detailed Info On Roeder's Illegal Activity

By Zachary Roth - June 4, 2009, 11:56AM - Earlier this week, we raised questions about whether the FBI acted aggressively enough after getting a tip about Scott Roeder, who's been charged with murdering Kansas doctor George Tiller. And those questions are only getting louder. Last night, the abortion clinic worker who had provided that tip went on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show, where he laid out Roeder's various efforts to vandalize the clinic -- starting in 2000 and culminating the day before Tiller's murder -- as well as the detailed information that the FBI received about the incidents...In a nutshell, here's what the worker -- using the pseudonym "Jeffrey Pederson" to protect his identity -- told Maddow:

Back in 2000, Pederson saw Roeder supergluing the front and back door locks to the clinic -- preventing anyone from entering or leaving -- two weekends in a row. Pederson gave the FBI the security videotape of the incident, as well as the license number of Roeder's car, which he had taken down. In response, the bureau said the pictures were not clear enough to build a case, but that they'd talk to Roeder.

That may have had some effect, because the worker said Roeder wasn't seen around the clinic again until 2006. At that time, he returned for several months, joining the group of anti-abortion protesters that would gather outside the clinic. Then he went away for a while again.

On the morning of Monday, May 25, 2009, clinic staff showed up to work to find the doors super-glued. When Pederson got in, he replaced the locks, then called the local police and the FBI. He viewed the security tape but was unable to identify the vandal. But on the 28th, he viewed the tape again and was able to identify Roeder. He gave that tape to the FBI.

On the morning of the 30th, the day before Tiller's shooting, Roeder returned. A staff member saw him gluing the back door of the clinic. She chased him away, and he fled, yelling "baby killer." She noted his license number, and told Pederson about the incident. He reported the incident to the FBI, making clear that this was the same person as had vandalized the clinic the previous week. In response, the FBI said that in order to take any action to stop Roeder, they'd need to convene a grand jury and get a warrant...

Late Update: Bridget Patton, a spokeswoman for the FBI's Kansas City office, tells TPMmuckraker that after receiving the information about Roeder from Pederson, the office opened an investigation. She declined to elaborate, citing that ongoing investigation. A spokesman with the FBI's national office declined to comment, referring us to Kansas City or the Department of Justice. A message left with DOJ public affairs was not immediately returned.
