Who is Jared Loughner? Investigation Into Arizona Shooting Continues

Monday, January 10, 2011

As details from the investigation into the shooting of Congressman Gabrielle Giffords and 19 other people emerged this weekend, government at both state and national levels reacted with outrage, sorrow and confusion. Marc Lacey, reporter for The New York Times has the latest.

Evidence suggests that Loughner planned his alleged assassination attempt. FBI agents found notes in the home of alleged shooter, a thank you letter for attending a previous political event, and videotapes. Loughner faces five counts including attempted assassination and murder.

Hey Julie from Royal Oak.. Were you born yet when there were Hitler appointed Bush pictures & signs ALL over the place? Its all bad. Don't be so self-righteous. The party you hate the most is just like the one you love.

Why is no one discussing gun control? A lot of speculation about the motives of the shooter - a lot of talk about incivility but why aren't we talking about outlawing guns?????

"I saw a man from the Southern Poverty Law Center speaking on MS NBC’s “Countdown Show” on Saturday night about two ...individual’s writings that maybe connected to this shooters own writings. This man from the Southern Poverty Law Center tracks hate groups and these 2 individuals whose writings he was connecting making connecting the dots to I've seen nowhere else. I'm sure the FBI has this information but it's curious to me that no one else has picked up on this and it seems like something a thread that will be worth following. Thank you."

While driving to work this AM in Michigan, 2 men were standing w/ signs of the President dressed like Hitler...same signs seen at Tea Party rallies. Though I would give me life for these individuals right to free speech and protest, I found this tasteless....6 innocent people haven't even had a chance to be eulogized and people are demonstrating hatred....shameful...
