Pouillon’s daughter: Father would have loved how far his death reached

9/11/2010

A year after the murder of anti-abortion activist Jim Pouillon, Mary Jo Pouillon of Owosso still misses her father everyday. But it’s a feeling the 27-year-old can temper knowing her father’s cause has reached more people through his death than in life.

“He always told me that he hoped that when he died that it was out on the corner doing work that God has called him to do. And that’s exactly what happened,” Mary Jo Pouillon said. “And so many more people heard about his story and his activism and his cause because of his death. And he would have loved that.”

Tragedy struck on the morning of Sept. 11, 2009, when Jim Pouillon was gunned down by a man in a white Ford pickup truck as he protested across the street from Owosso High School with a graphic anti-abortion sign.

Later identified as Harlan Drake of Owosso, the killer then went to Fuoss Gravel Pit in Owosso Township, and shot and killed owner Mike Fuoss. After traveling back to his home on Shiawassee Street, Drake was arrested by police, confessed to the two killings and was eventually jailed on murder charges.

A family memorial service with a cremation for Pouillon followed, and family and friends also packed Nelson-House Funeral Home to attend Fuoss’s funeral.

Following her father’s death, Mary Jo Pouillon said she received hundreds of cards mailed from all over the United States and the world. Pro-life activists also have held demonstrations in Jim Pouillon’s honor, she added.

The tragedy of Jim’s murder is that it could have been avoided if the police had taken threats against pro-lifers seriously.

During the trial, former Owosso city councilman Michael Cline testified that he received several calls from, Drake’s mother, Kim Staples in the days leading up to the shootings, asking if he could do anything about Pouillon’s graphic signs.

He described her tone as “evil” and “nasty.”

“The conversation started the exact same way every morning, ‘He’s still there,’” he said.

She told him she would “send her boys over to go see Jim.”

“I didn’t think that anything like that would ever happen,” Cline said. ( And that is the “mistake” that authorities make, they fail to take threats against pro-life people seriously)

After the shootings, Cline testified that Staples called him and said “I have solved the city’s problem, my son has shot Jim Pouillon.”

Edwards said Staples was upset about the graphic pro-life signs that Pouillon would show children in front of Owosso High School and that Staples felt she was wronged by Fuoss and a local real estate agent.

Drake told police that the night before the shootings he intended to kill Pouillon if he saw him at the school the next day.“I just drove and stopped, and I shot (Jim Pouillon),” Drake said during an interview recorded by police the day of the shootings. “He was still moving so I shot him one more time. I aimed under the ribcage going up toward the heart.”

“I figured if he was there, I’d make sure he wasn’t there (again)…

The first person on the scene,testified , that “Jim tried to protect himself with his sign as he was shot a number of times all over his chest, she saw the shooter rest his arm on the window to steady his right hand as he fired multiple shots at Pouillon

Typical of the media- they tried to discount the fact that James Pouillon was murdered because of the killers beliefs on abortion. Harlan Drake was pro-abortion and pro-choice plain and simple despite the media’s downplaying it !

TODAY- Jim’s name wasn’t even mentioned in the news media- he has been forgotten by those who support abortion- but not by me ! The violence against the unborn continues every day, and the violence against pro-lifers who try to protect the innocent children also continues.

Just as recent as a few day ago- pro-lifers were again threatened with violence with guns.

Cops called for abortion clinic threat , posted with vodpod

The man, identified in police reports as Hal Cox of Arizona, brought his 16-year old daughter to Curtis Boyd’s Southwestern Women’s Options for an abortion and became upset when his wife and daughter voluntarily approached two sidewalk counselors that spoke with them about abortion alternatives. He flashed what appeared to be a gun and threatened to shoot them if they said anything else to his daughter.

Police were called to the scene where they discovered that Cox was in immediate possession of a magazine filled with bullets. They also discovered a number of firearms in the trunk of his vehicle. Police confiscated the weapons.

Pro-Life protesterBud Shaver said , “This guy threatened to “put a bullet in your head, if you talk to her.” The police responded appropriately and took him away in handcuffs. They cleared Boyd’s clinic to search for the gun (SWAT style). Everyone including staff had to come out with their hands up. We have had a lot of threats on our lives. It is great the police are starting to take these threats seriously. The pro-aborts are truly the violent ones. It is time people started realizing that! ”

Shaver told Operation Rescue that he has been threatened a number of times since he has been in Albuquerque, but the police never responded in the way they did on Saturday.

“We are thankful that no one was injured and that the police took appropriate action,” said Newman. “Violence against pro-lifers has become something that we have to guard against every day. Those who reach out to women in front of abortion clinics should not be afraid to continue to do so, but should always have security and an awareness of their surroundings in mind.”

Abortion Clinic Escorts laugh about murder threat to pro-lifer; will casual attitudes toward violence trigger the next pro-choice shooter?

On the Blog: The Abortioneers
Noted as , The ins and outs and ups and downs of direct service in the field of abortion care.

Pro-choice clinic escorts are mocking pro-lifers they call “Anti’s” who talk to them, pray, or try and pass out pro-life literature.

They imply that the “Sweetness” of some of the “Antis” is upsetting.

One person commenting on the June 28,2010 post entitled: Obscenities, seems to think it is funny that a large man entering the abortion clinic threatened murder. The Comment written by “Moral Pilgrim” who defines itself as, “A collective of activists interested in social justice issues wo respond to the moral landscape of the nation as the spirit moves us.” Writes this Obscenity:

My personal favorite was the time when one of our Saturday morning, hate-filled antis yelled at a confident woman, “Don’t let them tear your daughter’s arms and legs off.”

The woman’s reply was, quite simply, “It’s a boy.”

Or the time another of the Saturday morning street mongers, yelled at a really large man about murdering his child. His measured response was, “I just got out of jail for murder. You wanna be my next victim?”

Can you imagine if a pro-lifer said that to ANYONE ? The police, media , FBI, Homeland Security, would be all over them. They’d be in handcuffs instantly for “terroristic Threats”, I call upon these “Clinic Escorts” to turn in this threat to the FBI before another Jim Pouillon type pro-life person gets gunned down.

It is exactly this type of casual disregard for murder threats that will cause the next pro-lifer to be gunned down. Already there is plenty of pro-choice violence against pro-life people as my blog reports: Here

This seems to tickle these pro-choice Abortioneer clinic workers because. The comments posted on the Abortioneer blog appear to be carefully selected. A detailed note is placed above the comment box which states, “This is not a political debate forum — you have DailyKos or Huffington Post for that! This is a safe space for abortion service providers and for all women’s reproductive choices; comments detrimental to such an environment will not be published.”

Just days ago I blogged about another pro-choice website which seemed to promote “Violence” out of frustration they were “loosing” the battle for abortion rights:

Here is a Blog post on The Abortion Gang Blog entitled “We are to nice”

This very frustrated Pro-abortion/ pro-choicer – who admits they are loosing suggests violence to get attention:

We blog. We write about our experiences and we try and normalize abortion; the word and the procedure. And, at least in the U.S., I think, we are losing. Everyday another state enacts another anti-choice measure. Everyday it gets just a little bit harder to get an abortion. Everyday another woman is forced to carry her pregnancy or seek an unsafe abortion.

So I wonder. I wonder if maybe we are doing it wrong. .. Would we be more successful if we were aggressive and violent…Would people start paying attention if we stopped being so nice? …What if we protested outside of anti-choice churches? What if we sent angry letters to priests and pastors and politicians? Would we stop losing? Would we start winning?

…I abhor violence. But we are losing. Women are losing. Do we need to reconsider our tactics so that women can win? Is violence and aggression necessary to get the attention of the lawmakers?

So how the news media spins this – Drake admitted that he didn’t like Jim Pouillon’s pro-life sign and that was why he brought a gun to the place where Jim was picketing? But the media wants to spin this as a “Grudge” and not a pro-choice murder. Drake may have held a grudge against Mike Fusso the other man he shot, but he didn’t even know James Pouillon – he just drove up to him one day and emptied his gun into his body because he disliked his graphic pro-life signs – THAT is hardly a grudge- that is belief based !

Prosecutor: Mich. man killed 2 to avenge his mom

By ED WHITE (AP) – 3/1/2010

CORUNNA, Mich. — A man who has his mother’s name tattooed on his chest was out to avenge her when he killed an anti-abortion activist in a drive-by shooting and then gunned down her former boss in a small Michigan community, a prosecutor said Monday.

Jurors heard opening statements in the first-degree murder trial of Harlan Drake, 33, who has admitted shooting the men but claims he was insane last September and should not be found guilty.

James Pouillon, an aggressive activist, was shot four times while clutching a sign with a picture of a dead fetus near Owosso High School, 30 miles west of Flint. Gravel pit owner Mike Fuoss was shot 17 times in his office just outside Owosso.

Assistant Prosecutor Sara Edwards said Drake’s mother, Kim Staples, expressed “growing displeasure” with Pouillon the day before the shooting because children could see his sign.

“The defendant decided if Mr. Pouillon was in front of that high school on September 11th, he was going to kill him,” Edwards told the jury. “He told detectives if Mr. Pouillon was there he was going to make sure he wasn’t going to be there again.”

As for Fuoss, Staples was his former employee, and Drake believed he had not treated his mother well, the prosecutor said.

Drake, a trucker, was “passionate about two things: his family and his guns,” said Edwards, noting he has tattoos honoring his mother and wife.

Drake wanted to kill a third man whom he felt had “wronged” Staples, but police arrested him before he could act, the prosecutor said.

Hearing canceled in Murder trial of pro-choicer Harlan Drake who shot and killed pro-lifer Jim Pouillon

In September of 2009, a pro-life activist was gunned down on a public sidewalk by a violent pro-choicer who hated his message. James Pouillon was standing in front of a Michigan High School, where he had stood peacefully many times before, carrying a pro-life sign. The Shiawassee County Prosecutor’s office has charged pro-choicer, Harlan J. Drake, 33, of Owosso with two counts of first-degree, premeditated murder.

Pouillon’s sign depicted a picture of a baby and simply said “LIFE” and for this he was brutally killed.

Police reported that Drake was ticked off at Pouillon’s pro-life message, so he hunted him down in a killing spree, drove up next to the man who had 2 leg braces and carried an oxygen tank, and opened fire. This is the pro-choice response to a non-violent protest, this is their way of bringing “peace” and “Common ground” to the abortion issue. This type of brutal murder , firing several bullets into the body of a loving father and a husband , is the violent pro-choice response to the simple pro-life message: “LIFE“.

Activist Killed

This week the murder trial of late term abortionist George Tiller is making headlines. Every sneeze in the court room is being documented and repeated. Yet – the murder trial of this pro-choicer who gunned down an innocent elderly pro-life man is hardly being covered, anywhere but in the local area. Ask yourself – WHY?

Here is one report of this pro-choice murder trial:
Hearing for Harlan Drake canceled after agreement
By GARY RIDLEY, Argus-Press Staff Writer

Tuesday, January 26, 2010 10:34 AM EST
CORUNNA – Officials canceled a hearing Monday in 35th Circuit Court in the Harlan Drake murder trial after the defense and prosecution came to an agreement regarding access to psychiatric records about the suspect.

Drake is accused of shooting to death abortion protester Jim Pouillon and businessman Mike Fuoss the morning of Sept. 11, 2009. Drake allegedly planned to kill a third man, but he was arrested within hours of the shootings and could not carry out the attack. He has been lodged either at the Center for Forensic Psychiatry or the Shiawassee County Jail ever since.

Drake initially was ruled incompetent to stand trial, but a later evaluation reversed that ruling.

Officials have said previously the case is not a “who-dunnit” but rather a case of why and is he responsible. The defense contends Drake is not reponsible because he was mentally ill at the time of the attacks.

Shiawassee County Prosecutor Randy Colbry said the motion involved access for one of state’s witnesses.
Colbry said Dr. Charles R. Clark, who sits on the Board of Directors of the American Board of Forensic Psychology, required access to information at the forensic center. However, Colbry said, since an order already in place assured Clark’s access to the information the hearing was unnecessary.

Clark, along with Candyce Shields of the Michigan Department of Community Health’s Center for Forensic Physchology and D/Sgt. Scott Shenk of the Shiawassee County Sheriff Department, is scheduled to be called as a witness to rebuke Drake’s claim of insanity, according to court records.

Drake’s attorney, Robert D. Ashley, plans to argue that Drake, 33, lacks criminal responsibility because he was not mentally sound.

Ashley is expected to call Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a clinical professor of psychiatry at Wayne State University, to affirm the defenses’ claim of insanity, according to court records.

Tanay has served as an expert witness in numerous trials, including the Jack Ruby, Sam Sheppard and Ted Bundy trials.

Drake is expected to be back in court Feb. 9.

California Pro-Life Group’s Office Suffers Break-In, Opponents Suspected

Posted in Abortion, Anti-abortion, pro-choice, pro-choice violence, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , on December 31, 2009 by saynsumthn

Sacramento, CA (LifeNews.com) — While the pro-life advocates at the Capitol Resource Institute pro-family group in California spent this past Christmas weekend with family and friends, their opponents appear to have broken into their office. Tim LeFever, the head of the group, shares the update with LifeNews.com. “Despite extensive security precautions, Capitol Resource Institute’s Sacramento office was broken into over the holiday weekend.

While staff was away with family, some took the opportunity to vandalize and take things of value. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this was a random entry in search of electronics and cash. Those responsible for this act apparently spent time poring through files and other things with little street value,” he explained. “CRI is not too worried that our opponents may have gained a glimpse of our strategy; we are pretty up front about what we do and why we do it. But we take this as another sad reminder of the dynamics of the battle we are in. Opponents of our family friendly agenda have not limited their opposition to conventional education or activism. Our web site has been hacked, our signs and literature destroyed, and our staff has received threats of violence. It is a tribute to the determination of the staff and supporters of CRI, and the importance of this work, that CRI has not backed down. Each attack has been met with a renewed commitment to push on.”

Recently a Pro-Life Pregnancy Center in Arizona was arsoned , a pro-lifer was attacked with a knife by a pro-choicer, a pro-life protester in Michigan was brutally murdered by a pro-choicer. These acts of pro-choice violence are mounting and I am calling for the FBI, Janet Napolitano, and others to investigate the possibility of a pro-choice conspiracy to attack pro-life people and organizations.

Violence at abortion clinics not “Isolated”

Posted in Abortion, Abortion death, Anti-abortion, pro-choice, pro-choice violence, Pro-Life, Violence against pro-lifer with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2009 by saynsumthn

Every news story about abortion, abortion in health care, abortion protesters, mentions the shooting of late term abortionist George Tiller, while failing to mention the brutal murder of pro-life activist Jim Pouillon.

Jim’s death comes on the heels of years of pro-choice violence excused and dismissed by the media and law enforcement. The fact that a gun was used to murder an innocent man means nothing to them.

Speaking of guns being used at abortion clinics, my family member had a gun pulled on her while exercising her Constitutionally protected free speech rights in front of an abortion clinic. The man who aimed the gun and threatened her was an out spoken pro-choice advocate in favor of abortion rights.

I have personally been assaulted by pro-choice people. My car has been vandalized, I have received threats and I was assaulted by an abortion clinic owner .

Yet- with all this proof – the media tries to paint pro-lifers as the violent ones. They NEVER show the pictures of the babies that are brutally murdered and they NEVER repeat the litany of documented evidence that pro-choice violence exists. Even Fox News, refuses to show the images of aborted babies, yet we see death and graphic images on that network daily.

Let’s start hammering the point- that pro-choice IS Pro-violence.

Remember- the pro-choicers have been intimidating, threatening, and even killing pro-life protesters with guns for years. Here is one example. If this has happened to you, please comment on this blog !

In October of 1994, a Washington Times headline read: “Man shoots at pro-lifer at Baton Rouge abortion clinic”.

A man picking up his wife at the Delta Women’s abortion clinic shot at pro-lifer demonstrating . The paper reported that the pro-lifer was not hurt. The violent pro-choice attacker, Ernest Robertson, was charged with attempted second degree murder. The pro-life protester he pointed a gun and shot at was , Richard Mahoney. After the two men one pro-choice and the other pro-life were arguing about whether the child was a baby, the pro-choicer went to his car, and got the gun and fired one shot at the pro-lifer. According to witnesses, the violent pro-choicer’s gun jammed and he was only able to get off one round. The violent pro-choice attacker then got into his car and drove off. He later turned himself in to the authorities. (Source: The Washington Times: 10/7/1994 Page A9)

Case in point is this non sense: Maddow calls it a “Waive of anti-abortion terrorism”

Late term abortionist, Warren Hern calls it anti-abortion violence- There is no mention of the documented pro-choice violence. Hern wants the President to tell pro-lifers protesting at clinics to go away. That is how these liberals work- SQUELCH Free Speech ! Hern compares pro-lifers to the Taliban and links the US Church to the Islamic Terrorists as well ! Ridiculous !
