Colorado Springs Police are Still Pretending not to Know Richard Dear's Motive

It's amazing but even after Dear's allusion to 'no more baby parts' the police are still acting as if there's ambiguity regarding the motive.

This was what was stated by a reporter this morning on MSNBC's Live With Jose Diaz-Balart-which is on at 9 A.M. during weekdays.

This agnosticism over motive is not innocent. I spoke of the agnosticism of the press yesterday.

At least I know I agree with Josh Marshall.

UPDATE: Josh has a followup piece today similar to this one in many ways.

As for the police, you have to keep in mind that Colorado Springs has long been a hotbed of anti abortion activism.

One other striking aspect of Diaz-Balart's show. They played the words of Leyote Chandler who's brother, Ke-arre Stewart, was one of the three murdered Friday night.

Stewart, who is an Iraqi vet, was there with his girlfriend, Jennifer Markovsky, who was having an abortion.

In Leyote Chandler's statement, he said that Dear took his only brother from him, the brother he grew up and loved. Then he said  that 'it's hard but I forgive him.'

I have to say, Mr. Chandler is a better man than me. I don't forgive what was done-this isn't the time for us as a nation to close this chapter.

Let's hope that the media will be compelled to cover this act of anti abortion terrorism more seriously in the coming days. Anti abortion terrorism must be stopped.

Meanwhile. Carly Fiorina who did a large part of the work in fomenting this denies any responsibility. No surprise here.

"Carly Fiorina called efforts to link the shooting to anti-abortion rhetoric part of “typical left-wing tactics.” Lest we forget, Fiorina has been one of the most adamant in espousing lies against Planned Parenthood, even going as far as to falsely claim in a debate that undercover video shot in the organization had shown “a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.”
“This is so typical of the left, to immediately begin demonizing the messenger because they don’t agree with the message,” Fiorina said on Fox News Sunday. “What I would say to anyone who would try to link this terrible tragedy to anyone who opposes abortion or the sale of body parts, is this is typical, left-wing tactics.” She said protesters should be peaceful, regardless of their cause. “Any protesters should always be peaceful, whether it’s Black Lives Matter or pro-life protesters,” she said. “Protesters should always be peaceful and respectful.”
Gee, you're right, Carly. Let's just not worry about it. Let's just forget what happened and go play golf or go to Starbucks. 
Meanwhile, Colorado Governor Hickenlooper gets it right. 
"And I think maybe it's time to look at, how do we tone down some of that rhetoric? Obviously, no one is going to try and reduce free speech in this country, but that rhetoric clearly is -- if people are in some way emotionally unstable or psychologically unbalanced, that intensity of rhetoric sometimes seems to pull a trigger in their brain that they lose contact with what reality is."
It's not only bloggers of course, It's more or less the entire GOP. The anti PP hearings. Carly Fiorina with her mawkish tales. 
I don't know how you get people like that to tone down their rhetoric-there is no way but ultimately to marginalize them. But no doubt they all have blood on their hands today as they blithely try to forget this.
