I’m Pig Biting Mad!!!!!! Pittsburg #14 (July 30)
I have a few things I got to tell you all about. First I am bumming because I twisted my foot in Montreal and torn a ligament. I am on crutches and I have had to play two shows now sitting down and one show proped up on the monitor.
Second, I’m bumming because I am so far behind on this diary-thing, it is getting ridiculous. Sometimes it’s hard to motivate enough to sit down and just get it all out but I’m working on it. Sorry….
But all this FAILS in comparison to how truly disturbed I am about the recent shooting of yet ANOTHER doctor in Pensacola FL. WHAT THE F…CK IS UP WITH THAT?!!?!@#$% WE ARE PIG BITING MAD- OUT OF CONTROL PISSED!!! I am including the news report below for you to check out 🙁
With that said, I am going to go watch Nick Cave and try and chill before we head out for Philly. The rumor is he is going to play the “Ship Song” today. later, finch
MILITANT ANTI-ABORTION PROTESTER CHARGED IN CLINIC SHOOTINGS
PENSACOLA, Fla (Reuter) – Two people, including a doctor wearing a bulletproof vest, were shot and killed and a woman was wounded outside an abortion clinic Friday and police arrested a militant anti-abortion protester for the shootings. The incident was the second fatal shooting at a Pensacola abortion clinic in 16 months. The suspect, Paul Hill, was described as a former Presbyterian minister. He leads an anti-abortion group that advocated “justifiable homicide” against doctors who perform abortions, authorities said. “That’s nothing compared to what is being done to the pre-born,” Hill said as police led him away, handcuffed. The violence mirrored an incident March 10, 1993, in which abortion doctor David Gunn was shot in the back and killed as he arrived for work at Pensacola’s other abortion clinic. Hill had appeared repeatedly on radio and television to defend the anti-abortion activist who killed Gunn, saying he believed using force against abortion clinics and doctors was justified. “We’re saying that both born children and unborn children should be defended with force if necessary,” he said during a March 8 interview with CNN. Police Sergeant Jerry Potts said the dead Friday included Dr John Bayard Britton, 69, a Fernandina Beach, Florida, physician who worked regularly at the clinic. Potts said Britton, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, was shot in the head. The second victim was identified as James Herman Barrett, 74, of Pensacola, a retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel and long-time abortion rights advocate who was acting as an escort to the clinic for Britton. Injured by the bullets was June Barrett, 69, Barrett’s wife, who was hospitalized in fair condition. Police said the victims were killed with shotgun blasts outside the clinic as they arrived together in a truck. Hill was charged with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder, authorities said. He was to appear Saturday at the Escambia County jail before Judge C.J. Roark III. President Clinton Friday strongly condemned “the senseless shootings” of three people, including two who were killed, outside an abortion clinic in Pensacola, Florida.
