Today in right-wing terrorism

Three dead and many wounded at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.

Zigmond Post, who told BuzzFeed News he was a neighbor of Dear’s in Hartsel, said the man once gave him anti-Obama pamphlets.

Post said he once went to Dear’s home to retrieve two dogs that had gotten loose. “We were there for a minute and the guy was already handing us anti-Obama pamphlets,” he said. According to Post, Dear said “Obama was ruining the country and needed to be impeached.”


UPDATE:

The Washington Post.

The gunman suspected of storming a Planned Parenthood clinic and killing a police officer and two others told the officers who arrested him “no more baby parts,” after being taken into custody, according to a law enforcement official.

The attack on the clinic was “definitely politically motivated,” the official — who has been briefed on the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity because it is still unfolding — told The Washington Post.
