Pro-life activists gunned down in Michigan
Police: Shooting suspect offended by anti-abortion material -


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. Watch Compeau talk about the incident

Several people witnessed the shooting, and one was able to provide a license number, he said.
This guy feels so strongly about killing the unborn that he wants to kill those who protest. :mad:

As horrible as it sounds, I kind of hope these guys are plastered all over the news. Looks like the shoe is one the other foot for once.

Now the leftist gun owners are going to get the spotlight for once. Almost sounds funny....leftist....gun owner....:eek::rolleyes:

Now, we're hoping that the stereotype will fit, despite the fact that we all know very well that this was the action of a single person, not some organized 'left-wing group' so to speak. No more than when someone who is labeled a 'right wing nut' gets crucified on the news, and we, law-abiding gun owners, pay hell for it....Despite it having ZERO to do with anyone other than that single person and his/her agenda.

However, I'm sure the media will get the Obama-wand waved at them, and it will spin into a 'guns are bad' article, instead of the real story here....

There will be a whitewash and a spin of the entire tragedy.
