In our final episode before the Thanksgiving break, tonight we're bringing you an encore showing of "The Assassination of Dr. Tiller." Rachel Maddow reports on the murder of Dr. George Tiller, an abortion provider in Wichita, Kansas, who was gunned down in his church. This is a gripping and difficult story, required viewing for everyone who wants to understand the extremism and extremists at work in American politics.
We'll be off on Thursday and Friday, then back on Monday and ready to roll.
After the jump, a couple of clips from "The Assassination of Dr. Tiller" that you can't see anywhere else, including the story of the first attempt on his life and what's become of those Dr. Tiller left behind, plus an exclusive interview with a doctor who's now being targeted.
