A prosecutor says the man accused of fatally shooting an abortion protester and business owner here has been taken from jail to a hospital Saturday with a self-inflicted wound to his arm.
Shiawassee County Prosecutor Randy Colbry said Saturday that Harlan Drake suffered "a serious gash" after cutting his arm near the wrist but was expected to recover.
Colbry said he doesn't know exactly when Drake cut himself or what he used to do so. Colbry says Drake was taken to a hospital for surgery.
So, while speculation as to motive is still running rampant, it seems clear to me that the guy is seriously disturbed. Shooting a handicapped man in front of a highschool with a bunch of kids around is not rational behaviour. (Neither is protesting abortion with gory signs in front of a highschool rational behaviour, IMO.)
Remember, there was a third murder planned. The scenario involving Drake's going postal, killing three people, then himself is looking more likely.
OK, now the Forced Pregnancy Gang will SHRIEEEEK that the feminazis are invoking the 'lone maniac' theory when clearly this guy acted on decades of lies, harassment, threats, and overheated rhetoric from the pro-choice side targetting handicapped anti-abortion protesters.
(BTW, if you haven't seen a photo of Drake, there's one at the Detroit News link. It's worth a click.)
