2015 – Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting
“On November 27, 2015, Robert Dear was arrested in Colorado Springs, Colorado following a shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic that left three people dead and nine others wounded. Dear is being held in police custody on suspicion of first-degree murder. Formal charges, however, are not expected until his next court hearing on December 9th. One of Dear’s ex-wives has stated that he glued the locks of a Planned Parenthood near their home decades ago. The New York Times reported that one person who spoke with Dear extensively told them that he had praised the Army of God, an loose organization that commits violence against abortion providers, as heroes. After the shooting, Dear reportedly made a comment about ‘no more baby parts.’ The government, however, has not commented on Dear’s motivations for allegedly conducting the attack.”
