Just Waiting

Nothing new to report about this domestic terrorist. Waiting for his appeal to be heard. We'll update when we hear something.

Little Scottie Has Been A Bad Boy

While checking for an update on the appeal of inmate number 0065192 (details here) we decided to see if Scottie was being a good boy in prison. The answer should not come as a surprise, he's not.

We could provide you a list of his transgressions and our comments but we think this speaks for itself (but do pay attention to the May 29, 2011 entry).


Scott Roeder Appeal Update

We've not posted in quite awhile because, well nothing is going on with the case.

According to the Clerk of the Kansas Appellate Courts, on September 8, 2011 Scott filed his brief with the Kansas Supreme Court. The State's brief is currently due on October 28th but we would expect a continuance or two to be granted. In short, it's going to be next year at the soonest before the Kansas Supreme Court hears oral arguments in the case.

One interesting side note. Terrorist supporter Regina Dinwiddie (we've mentioned her before here and here) asked the Kansas Supreme Court to allow her to file an Amicus Curie brief. The Court denied the motion.

Rep. Pompeo Does Not Care About Women

Can't say we're surprised by the recent E-mail we received from Rep. Mike Pompeo. Did anyone think he was more caring or smarter than Todd Tiahrt? Nope, same ilk.


Thank you for contacting me regarding the issue of abortion. I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with me. I value the input of every citizen in making sound decisions for Kansas and America.

I recognize that abortion is an issue where opinions can differ sharply. I believe that life is sacred and should be protected at all stages, from conception to natural death. In addition, I firmly hold that taxpayer money should not be used to fund abortions directly or subsidize healthcare policies that provide abortions. I cannot, in good conscience, support any legislation that provides taxpayer support for abortions, because I and so many constituents oppose the practice out of moral conviction.

Again, thank you for your thoughts regarding this important issue. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call on me or Keith Dater of my Washington, D.C. office. It is an honor to serve the people of Kansas in the United States Congress.

Member of Congress

A Message From Senator Sam

I'd like to say that I'm surprised by this response but alas, I expect nothing less from the man. I received the letter via e-mail on September 20, 2010.


Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about federally funded abortions in the military. I always appreciate hearing from the Kansans whom I serve.

Truly, no gift is more precious than life. I believe that life should be cherished by everyone and that all life is precious and should be protected. This should be a central tenet of any civilization(it is the hallmark of a truly life-affirming culture.

During my time in Congress, I have always defended the sanctity and dignity of every human life from the moment of conception. I will continue to be a strong advocate for legislation that ensures all individuals are afforded their inalienable right to life.

I do not support proposals to amend the National Defense Authorization Bill to allow for the funding of abortions in military hospitals overseas. Such amendments would have the effect of turning our military facilities into abortion clinics. Hardworking taxpayers should not have to be forced to pay for abortions.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me about this important issue. I appreciate your concerns, and I encourage you to visit my website at for more information on the issues on which I am working.

United States Senator

What Direction Should Roeder Watch take?

We're still here at Roeder Watch.  With the trial over there has not been much to report and we've been trying to figure out where we want to take this blog.  Post a comment and let us know.  Should we close the blog but leave it up as an archive?  Should we make it broader and address the anti-choice movement and what they are up to?  Should we move in some other direction?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Two videos from Rachel Maddow

On Thursday, April 1st, Scott Roeder's terrorist friends got their April Fool's joke: after trying to provide reasons why Roeder should be allowed to walk out of the courthouse, Roeder was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 50 years plus 24 months for aggravated assault (with the possibility of a 15% reduction for the assaults for good behavior). If he behaves, positively contributes to prison life, and repents, he has no chance of getting out of prison for 51 years and 8 months.

Rachel Maddow has been one of the only people in the media consistently calling this what it was: domestic terrorism. Thursday, she had Julie Burkhart on the show. Julie was the executive director for Dr. Tiller's PAC, ProKanDo, and has since founded Trust Women PAC. It was nice to see her on the show.

In the second video, Rachel talks about other acts of anti-government terrorism which is linked to anti-abortion terrorism.

We will have more coverage of the trial and the sentencing later, probably with more video.

Tweeting Sentecing

We're getting a message that we are over our tweet limit for the day.  Don't know if we'll be able to tweet when sentencing starts back up.

Sentencing delayed

According to the Wichita Eagle, Roeder's sentencing has been delayed from March 9th to April 1st. We at Roeder Watch do indeed note the irony.

Great Video - Verdicts Read In Roeder's Trial

I just can't get enough of hearing this!

1996 interview of Roeder by Leach (part 1?)

Dave Leach has been friends with Scott Roeder for a long time. In this interview for Leach's "The Uncle Ed Show," Roeder talks about being a Freeman. He talks about differences between God's law and man's law.

According to KWCH, Leach plans on selling tapes of the entire interview. Looking on his website, I would guess he wouldn't share the whole interview on YouTube (need the money to pay for the stay in Wichita, eh?) The Guardian criticized YouTube for hosting the jailhouse interview, though Don Spitz is of the opinion Roeder didn't threaten anyone in the interview. It is also on Leach's website for download. So it'll be around even if YouTube yanks it.

Spirit One Thinks the Sky is Falling

Spirit One Christian Center has a long history of making political statements outside their building. Many of the statements have caused the IRS to take a look to determine if they have crossed the line as a tax exempt organization.

Appears they have placed Judge Wilbert in their sights. Always scary when a group as far right as Spirit One is in the same boat with so many of the pro-choice groups that were sure we'd all fall off the edge of the earth with Judge Wilbert.


Post-trial quick links

Apologies for some late news here. I got bronchitis immediately after the trial and am just now getting over it. Here are some links of news the past couple of weeks:

Last week, Roeder's attorneys requested a new trial as is normal. Throughout the trial, Roeder's defense team stated the details behind their objections to various denials so they would be in the court record for the appeal.

During the trial, representatives from the US Department of Justice sat in the gallery and observed the trial (and some of the people in attendance). Which lead to an article concerning possible federal charges. Many of the people in the gallery have also visited Roeder in jail. Michael Bray, David Leach, Regina Dinwiddie, Jennifer McCoy, and Angel Dillard have all visited him and attended at least two days of the trial.

Up on the Eagle's website is a video with a couple of the deputies in the courtroom about their security measures during the trial. They made sure everything was orderly to keep the jury as free from prejudice as possible. Dinwiddie has been known in the past to make a ruckus during trials (she wanted to during Roeder's but was not allowed). These men and women of the sheriff's department did an excellent job.

Keith Olbermann gave a "quick comment" after Roeder's conviction. The truth behind Roeder's actions? He's not a hero: he's a fraud. Heroes don't threaten to kill others and then run and hide.

Last up, an article from The Guardian: Free speech wasn't meant for this.
There are a lot of things that don't get called terrorism in this country, but few of them approach the breadth of the long-term, flagrant campaign of intimidation, harassment, exhorted violence, attempted violence, actual violence, and murder of abortion providers and abortion-seeking women.

Roeder is a terrorist. It is flatly inexplicable why he is not regarded as such, nor his campaign of murderous rhetoric treated with the according contempt. Free speech was never meant to protect from embargo the communications of those who justify and exhort organised terror.

Interview With Scott Roeder

Dave Leach did an interview with Scott Roeder after the verdict. As sick as it it, we have to be aware that this how these terrorists think.
