Well, what the man did is criminal.
Whatever his motivations, they’re criminal.
They go against the laws he is bound by in being a citizen.
His reasons don’t matter so much to me. Even for those who may cheer at his actions, THEY didn’t go out and commit violence. They’re just going “yay guy woo”. Empty words.
It’s the act of a man who deserves punishment by civil authorities.
It’s an uncommon act. In fact, it is VERY uncommon. Even among the percentage of people who are pro-life by ideology, consider bombing clinics the work of an extremist, a terrorist, a murder – pick your favorite word.
Then within the pro-life there is a small subset who says, “You’re doing what I’d never do and good for you”
Within that small subset is another micro-subset and that’s those that really WOULD do what he did.
Then within that small subset of the micro-subset are those who WILL do it.
