Anti-Abortion Activist Killed At School

From Michigan’s very local Flint Journal:

A police officer walks past the scene of a fatal shooting on Friday morning in front of Owosso High School.

Anti-abortion activist shot in front of Owosso High School

OWOSSO, Michigan — State police at the Corunna post have confirmed a well-known anti-abortion activist was shot multiple times and killed this morning in front of Owosso High School.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released but the shooting occurred around 7:30 a.m., after most students were off the buses and safely inside the building, said Owosso schools transportation supervisor Jayne Campbell.

State police also confirmed that a suspect was taken into custody about 8:15 a.m. at the suspect’s home.

Owosso High School secretary Wendy Smith said the students remain in lockdown this morning and confirmed that no students were involved and all are safe with classes going on as normal. The shooting did not occur on school property, Smith said.

Meanwhile, police have completely ringed with police tape a section of North Street in front of the school.

A black car can be seen parked at the corner of North and Whitehaven streets, where a portable oxygen tank is lying in a front yard next to a large sign bearing the image of a baby and the word "Life."

Will this receive wall-to-wall coverage from our watchdog media?

Will Mr. Obama issue a statement expressing his grief?

Will the attorney general send out federal marshals to protect anti-abortionists?

(These are  rhetorical questions.)

    What a telling sign of the times when dark forces so hell-bent on destroying life cast spells and wage war against the innocent advocates of defenseless babies.

    I can’t remember the murder of a pro-life protester ever before. Does anyone else?

    I know there has been violence against abortionists. Killing babies seems to stoke passions in some people.

    But to kill someone who seeks to protect unborn lives? How do you drive yourself to murder for that reason?

    What is different about the country today in 2009, that didn’t seem to exist before, and that could inspire somebody to kill a person who was trying to protect unborn babies?

    hmmmmm

    • The more I experience life in this world, the more I realize most liberals have a negative correlative logic when it comes to criminals, victims, and sympathy.

      That is, the more violent and abhorrent the crime, and the more innocent the victim, the less sympathy liberals have for the victims.

      You kill someone who wants to protect the unborn because you believe this world owes you the right to unfettered, consequence-free sex. You believe it’s all about YOU and that anyone who points out the basic, biological fact that an unborn child is a wholly separate, unique individual and human being is going to oppress your right to sleep with anything that moves.

      My son was born on August 27. Perfect and healthy. He wasn’t “planned”, but is a blessing. He looks like my mother-in-law, who’s been in the hospital/assisted living since January as she lives with the effects of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

      Every day, thousands of babies are denied the opportunity to know love and comfort because they – like my son – were not planned and are an “inconvenience.” The thing is – as backward as I apparently am – I know how my son was made. If I didn’t want kids, I’d avoid that activity…

    Will pro-abortionists now be added to Homeland Security Terrorist list, along with tea party attenders (tax protestors) anti-abortionists, former soldiers, etc. ?
    Obama is too busy doing a surprise training excercise, with the coast guard firing blanks at the Pontiac River as Obama crosses it, on way to Pentagon. Guess Obama didn’t repent for the Air-Force 1 fly-over ground zero. Footage is being shown on FOX of boats driving wildly and the coast guard standing holding rifles. Obama is an exhibitionist.
    Obama is one sick puppy.

    • WendyB says:

      Yeah, ask me how Obama’s latest shenanigans affected my commute this morning. But what does he care? This is a man who flew with his consort, at taxpayer expense, to Chicago for a “date night” while the stimulus bill he had to have, urgently, sat cooling on his desk all weekend. Do you think the average citizen of the USSR knew exactly how high the Politburo were living, while they waited in line for potatoes? I think they probably didn’t. Too bad I know exactly how much fun Obama is having . . .

  4. GetBackJack says:

    Years ago I had the inestimable honor to experience speaking with a Jew who survived Hitler’s death camps. Besides the blood curdling tales you would expect, she also had a comment that later, with the advent of widespread abortion, fell into place.

    It fell into place because of my study of ritual magic. Seems an odd thing for a Christian to do, but I wanted to know my enemy. Well, don’t go there if you’re not strong. It haunts me. But I learned a thing that is critically important. Part One is … ritual magic works. You need to know it does. Part Two is … what powers ritual magic.

    Life.

    Life is the true reality, the real truth. Life is THE gift of God, and Satan,Lucifer, the devil whatever name you prefer does everything in its power …. which is considerable … to debase and corrupt that gift of Life. That spark is what he’s after.

    In order for ritual magic to work, it must have energy to power it, and that energy comes in little snips of Life given to power it. The film makers of GHOST were pretty damn close in portraying how spirits come for darkened malignant souls. If you know of ritual sacrifice, then you have a bone chilling glimpse. A true magus, a real practitioner of the black arts doesn’t use his life to power his magic, oh no. That’s a self-defeating curve of entropy. It’s why a real satanist has acolytes, and victims. He uses their life force … which is in their stupidity and greed willingly given without knowing the full cost … and he uses them up, not himself. It takes little snippets of life to power ritual magic. Otherwise, it’s just a bunch of empty incantations.

    So, at this dinner conversation with this fierce Jewish survivor of the camps, she confides to me that her Rabbi repeatedly told her the purpose of the camps – whether a work camp or a death camp – was to feed on God’s Chosen People. And when they were hollowed out, dispose of them. The ultimate insult to God. The ultimate FU.

    Consider that Hitler concentrated on the Jews, the Jews are identified in our Bible as being God’s especial people and that statement by her …. and Hitler’s entire assembly’s gorging on the black art rituals of satanic magic … her Rabbi’s statement makes perfect sense, once you know the secret of how ritual magic is made to work. The camps were to power Hitler’s satanic war.

    Knowing this … now you understand abortion.

    Abortion is the ritual sacrifice powering the black magic that is secular humanism tearing, tearing, tearing at the West’s Christian, Godly underpinnings like demons scrabbling at the doors with their claws. It’s why the Left – godless Left – will never let go abortion, and why abortion is, to their black thinking, a sacrament in their world.

    Murdering the innocents is their sacrament.

    Just because you can’t see how this is done, can’t see with your waking eyes the villains accomplishing their wickedness doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. How angels accomplish their magnificent care for us every day would be impossible for most of us to note, but it goes on all the same. If you have to see with your waking eyes to acknowledge truth, if the villains have to hand you a sworn affidavit of their guilt in order for you to recognize facts, then the above will make no sense.

    But it remains that to the Left, abortion is a sacrament of their purpose. And their purpose is a world without God.

    • proreason says:

      You’re always interesting, GetBack.

      But abortion is more about a few angry women wanting to have the freedom men have always had (to a large extent) to have sex without consequences.

      They aren’t satisfied with birth control, because when it fails, the responsibility for the child usually falls on the woman more than the man.

      They aren’t satisfied with educating men, because it’s hard, and will take generations, and is probably impossible.

      They aren’t satisfied with self control, because they only want to control other people, not themselves.

      They aren’t satisfied with now outdated social compacts, because for them, free sex trumps boundaries.

      So they insist on the right to take another life, and justify it with sophistry.

    Owosso Township gravel pit owner identified as second homicide victim

    by Elizabeth Shaw and Bryn Mickle | Flint Journal

    Ryan Garza | The Flint Journal

    OWOSSO TOWNSHIP, Michigan — Mike Fuoss, 61, owner of Fuoss Gravel Pit, 777 Busha Road in Owosso Township, has been identified as the second homicide victim in Shiawassee County this morning.

    Fuoss also owned Arrow Construction, an asphalt and excavating company, and started Indan Rock Subdivision and Fuoss Brothers Apartments. Fuoss graduated from Corunna High School in 1966.

    In a press conference, Owosso police Chief Michael Compeau said James L. Pouillon was staging an anti-abortion protest in front of Owosso High School at 7:20 a.m. Friday when witnesses heard 4-10 shots fired from a passing vehicle, killing Pouillon.

    All the shots were fired from the moving vehicle toward the opposite side of the street, away from the school, police said.

    The entire school district was placed in lockdown and all after-school activites have been cancelled today out of respect for the tragedy. Parents have also been given the option to take their children home today.

    A witness provided a license plate number and about an hour later, Owosso police arrested a 33-year-old Owosso man at his home.

    When he was arrested, the man told police that he had been involved in another homicide in Shiawassee County today.

    About 8:17 a.m., an hour after Pouillon was killed, a worker at Fuoss Gravel Pit called 911 to report that he had found the owner of the business dead in the office. Police found Mike Fuoss, 61, shot multiple times in the office.

    Fuoss knew the suspected shooter, according to Shiawassee County Sheriff George Braidwood. Braidwood said it appeared he was shot at close range.

    It is unknown if the suspect knew Pouillon. Police said it’s too early to assign any motive to either shooting. Detectives are interviewing the suspect right now.

    Police believe the shots were fired from a semi-automatic. They are unsure if it was a pistol or a long gun and are awaiting a search warrant to look for the weapon in the suspect’s vehicle.

  6. P. Aaron says:

    I am sure that the left will immediately question its alliances to militant pro-abortion activities nationwide and the state controlled media will begin a hard-hitting investigative series of news reports into extremist pro-abortion groups.

    [/alarm clock going off]

  7. Petronius says:

    When “to each according to his need” is your only philosophy, when need transcends everything else, transcends every positive value, then someone’s need for an abortion will always transcend life. To the self-haters and the life-haters, it is axiomatic.

    And as for those who believe in life, in love, in reason, in God … well, they will just have to adjust their thinking, or get out of the way. This is the era when those who cannot think or love will command. This is the era of the me-generation, of the moochers, vandals, thugs, and looters. And as for the rest of us––we, the bitter clingers––well, we had better just shut up and do as we are told if we know what is good for us.

    Adjutorium nostrum in nomine Domini, qui fecit coelum et terram. (“Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124 : 8.)

    • proreason says:

      “to each according to his need”

      The Con Man’s carrot.

      The Mark’s elixer.

      The Liberal’s mantra.

  8. jasper says:

    Conservatives believe in limiting government power, right? And private contracts, and individual responsibility? So why do you want to give the government the power to force women to carry babies when they have decided they can’t?

    • oldswimcoach says:

      You miss the point of the abortion debate.

      Abortion laws were and should still be a local issue, and tied to the moral values and behavioral standards of the local population. Abortion was legal in several states before Roe, and would be legal in several states should Roe be overturned.

      The FEDERAL Government should not be involved, but it is too hard for liberals to win arguments in multiple states so federal judicial fiat is the preferred liberal implementation methodology (the same methods are being applied to gun control legislation).

      From a logic perspective, how is the federal government’s not funding abortions “forcing” women to carry babies? The federal government didn’t buy my house, so are they “forcing” me to be homeless? Personal responsibility is a high you need to experience – it will change your perspectives and your life!

    • jasper says:

      If abortion laws became a local issue again, I fear this would not address Proreason’s concerns about slutty women. I don’t think he wants all those sluts running around free in New York and California, either. He, like President Bush, probably supports a constitutional amendment to ban abortion.

      Then the women would be forced to carry the children to term because the government would have to force their doctors not to treat them as they request.

      If a woman wants to pay her own money and have her own doctor help her to do the right thing and wait until she can have a family, no Conservative should want the feds interfering with that.

    • oldswimcoach says:

      So can I put you down as anti-abortion for birth control but pro slutty women?

    • jasper says:

      I don’t know what anti – abortion for birth control means.

      And I don’t feel the need to call thousands of women and couples in difficult situations “slutty”.

  9. proreason says:

    You’ve got a point on this one Jasper.

    After all, when I get tired of my cell phone contract, I can just give a couple hundred bucks to the provider, and throw it in the trash.

    What’t the difference with a baby?

    Bonus! Babies can’t force you to payup.

    Double bonus!! The Moron will pay for everything.

    Triple bonus!!! Overnight weight loss. She can be lookin good the very next day.

    Quadruple bonus!!! Think of the co2 the planet avoids.

    It’s the liberal dream. Improve your profilin and cut your carbon footprint, all at somebody else’s expense.

  10. jasper says:

    Bonus! your dad rapes you and you’re a pregnant 14 – year – old! Double Bonus! Proreason will force you at the point of a government goon’s gun to bear the child anyway!

    These decisions are painful and sad for everyone involved.

    • Howard Roark says:

      Having a baby is only “painful” and “sad” for a little while, Jasper. Lots of things in Life are sad and painful, and part of being a mature, responsible person in this world means that you will have to endure certain things that aren’t “fair”. For this nation to allow millions of babies to be killed because of the one in a million 14 yr-old girls who gets pregnant by her father is akin to throwing the baby out with the bathwater, but on a grander level of cynicism and evil.

      Also, it sounds like you haven’t had enough of the whipping that Pro put you through yesterday. Honestly, you should be too embarrassed to come back here to sling around childlike accusations like, Proreason will force you at the point of a government goon’s gun to bear the child anyway!, but knowing liberals like you, you have no shame, and you don’t know the difference between the Enemy and Conservatives. It’s a patriotic thing though–you wouldn’t understand.

    • oldswimcoach says:

      Jasper, you’re using the most gruesome example possible to justify what is generally an immoral birth control choice of middle class women and 20 something’s that don’t want to take personal responsibility for their life choices.

    • jasper says:

      You’re right. it is the most gruesome example, I didn’t love using it, and of course it is rare.

      But liberty is given to all citizens. We all have the right to free speech. Some will use it to uncover government corruption, others will sue it to make pornography or something. We can’t take away the rights of the responsible people just to stop the irresponsible ones.

    • oldswimcoach says:

      And where do the rights and the liberties of the unborn enter into this equation? That is the issue that never seems to be addressed.

    • jasper says:

      Here is one:

      http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/abstract/286/24/3089?ck=nck

      Journal of the American medical Association. Tell me if you want more, I’ll try to find that one I had.

      I do not mean to paint adoptive or foster parents as bad, I really don’t.

      I just have thought about it and I trust the mother to decide when she can take care of a baby, not the government.

      As for unborn children. I do worry about them. I think there are worse things than being born, and they are all more likely to happen to a kid born into a bad situation. But even considering the fetus inside the womb. None of us can remember being there but we all were. Fetuses are definitely human life, but they must be a special case of it. They don’t get alarmed to be confined underwater in total darkness for nine months. Any baby or child or adult would freak out, it’s practically our worst fear of being buried alive. I know that sounds stupid the way I wrote it but to me it means we must not be as prone to pain or fear when we are fetuses. if you asked me if i’d rather have been aborted or live in pain and kill myself I’d pick the former. I’m sure some of you guys will think “I wish you were”, but I’m serious. I do consider the feelings of the unborn baby in forming my political opinion.

  11. jasper says:

    If the government came into your house and took away your guns the pain and sadness would only last a little while, too. But it would also violate your liberty.

    Let the people be free to start their families when they are ready, and oppose government enforced tyranny!

    • Howard Roark says:

      The gov’t coming in to take away our guns is a direct violation against our Bill Of Rights. There is no Bill of Rights that guarantees the right to kill babies. For you to make a moral equivalency between the two shows that you’re still under the spell of public education or, worse yet, some professor somewhere.

      Letting the people start their families when they are ready by aborting babies ignores the personal responsibility of being serious enough to avoid getting pregnant in the first place until you’re ready. Once again, the more you speak, Jasper, the more you reveal your maturity and understanding of America, or lack of both.

  12. jasper says:

    Well, Howard, I’m not making any personal insults to you.

    I recently read an article that suicide rates are much higher in people who experienced troubled childhoods, including ever having been in foster care. I don’t think it is responsible to bring a baby into a terrible situation just to lose that person to suicide. There are worse things than never being born. Never being loved is one.

    The people should retain whatever liberties they can unless there is a pressing need for the government to curtail them.

    • Howard Roark says:

      You’re insulting without even knowing it, Jasper.

      If you don’t think it’s responsible to bring a baby into this world, then don’t do it–problem solved. Funny thing about abstinence–it works every time it’s tried.

      Your argument of an unloved baby being turned over to foster care is a really weak argument for abortion. Not only does it ignore an individual’s ability to control their urges, but it also paints a nation full of wonderful foster care/adoptive parents as unloving agents of suicide. Just what “article” serves as the Truth for you?

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Read an article.

      OK, but you kind of jumped the shark on that. You are assuming that by a child not being aborted, it will grow up in an unfavorable environment and will then stand a greater chance at committing suicide.

      I submit that if the child was carried to term, then given up for adoption, they stand a much better chance of growing up in a loving, caring, nurturing environment because I “read and article” that there are countless married couples who cannot have children of their own and newborns are the first to be adopted. It’s the kids who are past the age of 3 to 4 who are most at risk and I do agree with you, to a point. But at that point, I say it is essential that all kids should have a home where they are loved and cared for.

      But, I also happen to know that life is not an ideallic fantasy where all kids avoid drugs and gangs and disreputable behavior. And, disreputable behavior is not always the fault of the parent.

      But….also…as the saying goes…you need a license to fish, but anybody can have a kid.

      But….also ALSO……there’s “having a kid” and “being a parent”.

      That means being an adult and making the hard choices.

      Abortion is not a viable form of birth control. The child is unable to fight for its rights and therefore, must be protected by law. The only issue that some seem to have is, when does life begin?

      But Roe vs. Wade is, unfortunately, the yardstick our system falls back on. I suggest to you that you really review Pro’s points on that…they are very valid.

      When I was younger, I thought similarly to you on this issue, but having had kids of my own, and having seen many kids over the years, I find them to be wonderful, amazing people…and all worthy of love, support and help in growing up. And that means no matter how they came to be conceived.

      I struggle with the rape issue…truly. And the incest issue as well…but life is hard. These are decisions that unfortunately fetter our world. They interfere with the nice, soft, fuzzy things we like to think about. But…I will say you have the potential for being a critical thinker by bringing up these issues, so good on ya for that.

      The difference, though, I will say is that a liberal wants someone ELSE to decide for them. A conservative will take up the responsibility and face the music. I’m not saying that all people do this all the time in an empirical format but that the true test of character is how one deals with a crisis of a highly personal nature and accepts the responsibility.

      I have watched as the years go by that we seem to have fewer and fewer adults in our society…and part of that is because of how our marketing world caters to the young and their desires for the “next big thing”. No, I’m not slamming any group. I was there, too once.

      But as you get older, you will find yourself enjoying more the things you already have..and slowing down and understanding more as to why things are the way they are.

      Another difference in liberal thinking versus conservative thinking is that liberals tend to think that Utopia can be forced to happen. Often they try to achieve this by trying to get people to not think a certain way. Nothing could be more absurd.

      The conservative would also love to see world peace, everyone share, being polite…but we also know that the responsibility for that starts with US. Therefore we endeavor to be fair WITHOUT anyone telling us what “fair” is, mind you. We hope for the day when bad people stop acting up. But we also know that if there is more than one person in a room, there will be an argument. At some point. Maybe not knock-down, drag-out…but an argument in the sense that there will be disagreement.

      So, jasper, try not to to just throw stuff out there because you “read an article”. When you do read an article do the same with it as you do with this discussion….take the opposing view….see where the holes in the logic may be. Then when you can do that, you will have graduated to critical thinking status.

  13. canary says:

    Jasper/”I just saw a picture on Reuters. It shows two Americans outside a town hall meeting about health reform. One is sort of strangling the other to stop him from shouting.
    The thing is, I don’t know which guy is on what side in this picture, but I don’t like it. I don’t like seeing this in our country.”

    So, Jasper google aborted baby sites, especially the late-term ones, and
    then come back and talk about abortion being as simple as having a tooth pulled. You compare a human life to a woman’s tooth.

  14. jasper says:

    I didn’t compare an unborn baby to a tooth, I did not write that. I will do the google search you ask if you agree to look at pictures of people who have killed themselves because of bad childhoods.

  15. Steve says:

    Please.

    Every mention of abortion is not an invitation for another fruitless ‘debate’ on its merits, pro and con.
