Considering the amount of fingers pointed at conservatives and anti-abortion activists by the Left after the shooting death of late-term abortionist George Tiller some months back (with Krazy Keith leading charge), it's only fitting that we ask if the feigned outrage displayed by Olbermann and his ilk helped create a climate of hate that led to the deaths of Jim Pouillon and Michael Fuoss. Not that we really care about what Olbermann thinks since hardly anyone watches his show, but would it hurt to check and see if Harlan Drake was one of the few who does?
Authorities have charged an Owosso, Michigan, man with two counts of first-degree premeditated murder in the Friday shooting deaths of an anti-abortion activist and another man, a prosecutor's office said.
Authorities say the suspect, Harlan James Drake, was offended by anti-abortion material that the activist had displayed across from the school all week.
Drake, 33, is accused of shooting anti-abortion activist Jim Pouillon, 63, and Michael Fuoss, 61, who were killed in separate locations Friday morning, the prosecutor's office in Shiawassee County said.
Authorities also have charged Drake with a felony firearm count and carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, the prosecutor's office said.
Drake also is suspected of "attempting to locate a third victim without success," the office said.
He was arraigned Friday and is being held without bail, the office said. It was not immediately known whether he had an attorney.Pouillon, whose anti-abortion activity was well-known in the area, was protesting across the street from Owosso High School about 7:20 a.m. Friday when he was killed by several shots fired from a passing vehicle, Owosso Police Chief Michael Compeau said. Several people witnessed the shooting, and one was able to provide a license number, he said. About an hour later, Owosso police officers found the suspect, Compeau said.
