R.I.P. Jim Pouillon

Lifenews.com reports that pro-Life activist James Pouillon was gunned down this morning outside a school in Owosso, Michigan

While Pouillon was active in protesting abortion — and his death will bring up the issue of abortion and violence again in the wake of the shooting of late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller — he always condemned violence as a solution to the violence of abortion.

“Jim was completely non-violent and he condemned violence,” Zastrow said.

Judy Climer, president of Flint Right to Life, described Pouillon to the Flint Journal newspaper as “just a nice, elderly gentleman who was disabled, used an oxygen tank and wore leg braces.”

Furthermore, According to Sara Edwards, the chief assistant prosecutor for Shiawassee County,

Pouillon’s pro-life stance was the reason he was targeted and said the suspect officials have in custody disapproved of his abortion protests outside the schools.

So, this wasn’t just some random shooting. Some gutless, pro-abortion thug intentionally targeted an old disabled man on oxygen who was exercising his first amendment rights. Keith Olbermann must be so proud.
