Rachel Maddow guest Frank Schaeffer says that while he doesn't think that more extreme wings of the anti-choice movement collaborated with alleged killer Scott Roeder or knew he planned to murder Dr. George Tiller, anti-choice groups do know who commits vandalism against clinics, who glues the doors shut, who might plan to throw firebombs.

Her guest, Frank Schaeffer, a former religious right activist, says that while he doesn’t think that more extreme wings of the anti-choice movement collaborated with alleged killer Scott Roeder or knew he planned to murder Dr. George Tiller, anti-choice groups do know who commits vandalism against clinics, who glues the doors shut, who might plan to throw firebombs. 

Says Schaeffer, "They know they have some people who are wackos in and around their meetings…and they know perfectly well that some of them may go to the next step.  So if they’re not doing something about curbing that, and working with law enfrocement, they’re really then part of the problem."
