While investigators claim they are still trying to fully understand the motive of the husband and wife team who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., accused Planned Parenthood shooter Robert Lewis Dear left little question as to the motive behind his alleged shooting spree that killed 3 in Colorado Springs, including a police officer, when he appeared in court today.

Dear was charged with 179 counts, including first-degree murder.

Planned Parenthood executive vice president Dawn Laguens and president Cecile Richards were uncharacteristically measured in their comments.
