Read backstory here.
Theodore Shulman not only threatened to kill several pro-life leaders, he was found in possession of “cyanide and two other deadly substances” when apprehended by the FBI in May 2010. Shulman liked to refer to himself as the “first pro-choice terrorist.”
Shulman faced up to 51 months in prison and a fine of $250,000. An October 3 press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of New York, indicates Shulman ended up getting sentenced to 41 months in prison, three years supervised release, and a $100 fine.
Odd that there still are no pictures. Imagine if the situation were reversed.
There has also barely a news blip on Shulman since his arrest. Again, were the situation reversed. One of the few news outlets reporting on the sentence had an interesting headline. I expect The Global Dispatch will fix it shortly. Freudian slip, I suppose…
Shulman was apprehended for threatening two pro-life leaders, Professor Robert George of Princeton and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life.
But Shulman also threatened others, including this site’s moderator Dr. Gerard Nadal, Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger and Troy Newman, Stand True’s Bryan Kemper, Live Action’s Lila Rose, and me. From PoliticsDaily.com in 2011:
In assisting the FBI over the past few years, Jill Stanek compiled more than 4,000 comments that Shulman posted or tried to post on her site over the last four years or so. One example: “I’m looking forward to watching a documentary entitled ‘The Assassination of Jill Stanek’,” Shulman wrote on Oct. 27 in a comment using one of his many online aliases.
Shulman also harassed Carla, Kelli, and several of you commenters. I appreciate how everyone stayed strong and also how the moderators and Kel helped compile information to give to the FBI.
