Not a Terrorist

[Content Note: Anti-choice terrorism.]

On Tuesday, I wrote about a fire at a women's clinic in Pensacola, Florida, which had previously been bombed twice and was the site of the fatal shootings of Dr. John Britton and clinic escort James Barrett.

Today, Bobby Joe Rogers, 41, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was arrested and federally charged with one count of Damaging a Building by Fire or Explosive, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years.

He is (allegedly) a terrorist. This was terrorism.
