Not Terrorism (But Should Be)

[Content Note: Anti-choice terrorism.]

Fred Clark at Slacktivist has an important follow-up to my post yesterday about the arrest of Bobby Joe Rogers for setting the fire at a women's clinic in Pensacola, Florida. Fred looks at what happened and what the definition of domestic terrorism in the US Code is, and asks: "How is that not domestic terrorism?"

Good question.

There's still time for federal authorities to amend the charges. Let us hope that they do.

Otherwise, feminist women and our pro-choice allies might get the impression that our government doesn't give a fuck about us. Ahem.
