Amy Bishop Charged With Murder
Professor Amy Bishop has been charged with three counts of murder.
UAH professor Dr. Amy Bishop has been charged with murder in connection with a deadly shooting that killed three people and injured three more Friday afternoon.
Huntsville police spokesman Sgt. Mark Roberts said Bishop was charged Saturday morning with one count of capital murder.
Personally, I’m outraged that Bishop is being charged by civilian law enforcement. Indeed, I’d be willing to wager that she was Mirandized, to boot. This despite the fact that she clearly committed an act of terrorism against a government institution. Shockingly, by all accounts it also appears that the Obama Administration is going to also idly standby and allow her to be tried in the same jurisdiction that her crime was committed in. Outrageous!
By trying Bishop in civilian court, we’re only going to embolden other tenure-track professors to commit the same crime. But of course, Obama’s going to let this happen. He himself was an untenured professor and clearly sympathizes with Bishop.
