On Friday, Robert L. Dear was taken into custody after a shooting spree at or near a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, prompting liberals across the country to engage in the usual hyperbole against white conservative Christians.
Officials say it is too early to assign a motive to the shooting. A report at The Heavy says Dear has a fairly long criminal record:
According to court records, Dear has an arrest record in both North and South Carolina. He has been convicted of several traffic offenses, but has been arrested multiple times on more serious charges.
His convictions include seat belt violations, driver’s license violations, operating a vehicle in an unsafe mechanical condition and driving a non-registered vehicle.
Dear was charged in 2002 in Colleton County, South Carolina, with charges of “peeping Tom”/eavesdropping. That charge was dismissed. That same year, a woman with the same address as Dear was granted a restraining order against him, court records show.
He was also charged in Colleton County with two counts of cruelty to animals, but was found not guilty in a bench trial.
