  • Tucson Suspect Charged With Murders of Judge, Aide

    03/04/2011 11:49:14 AM PST · by ColdOne · 12 replies ^ | March 04, 2011 | AP
    PHOENIX -- The suspect in the Tucson, Arizona, shooting rampage has been indicted on new charges that include the murders of a federal judge and a congressional aide. The charges filed Friday were added to other federal counts that 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner already faced in the Jan. 8 shooting. The shooting occurred at a political event held by U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords outside a Tucson grocery store. The latest indictment charges Loughner with murder in the deaths of U.S. District Judge John Roll and Giffords aide Gabe Zimmerman.

    A team of 250 federal investigators and 130 local detectives trying to understand why Jared Lee Loughner went on his alleged killing spree has conducted more than 300 interviews with family, friends and neighbors since the shooting. But they remain stumped about what ultimately prompted the 22-year-old's descent into violence. Investigators have had little success gaining information from either the uncooperative Loughner or his parents, who have told authorities that they had little recent contact with their son, law enforcement sources said. With so little help coming from the immediate family, investigators are probing associates and witnesses for details that...

    TUCSON — A victim of the shooting spree here that severely injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was taken into custody on Saturday after the police and witnesses said the man spoke threateningly at a televised forum intended to help this stricken city heal. Eric Fuller, 63, a military veteran who was passionate about liberal causes and who had supported Ms. Giffords, was “involuntarily committed for mental health evaluation,” according to Jason Ogan, a spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff’s office. Mr. Fuller, who was shot in the left knee and the back on Jan. 8, was among several victims, medical personnel...

    President Obama’s dramatic news at last night’s memorial service in Tucson that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ has just minutes before opened her left eye for the first time since the shooting has created some confusion in light of news from doctors that Giffords “could open her eyes” on Sunday. But doctors today provided a simple explanation: Wednesday was the first time Giffords opened her eyes on her own, which Giffords' neurosurgeon, Dr. Michael Lemole Thursday called “a major milestone.” “When we examine patients, particularly in this state we have to ‘wake them up,’ give them some stimulus, and with that stimulus...

Gabrielle Giffords has passed a "major milestone" on her recovery from a gunshot wound to the head, doctors said Thursday. The Arizona congresswoman has been sitting up, dangling her legs on the edge of the hospital bed and moving her limbs in response to commands. That's after she spontaneously opened her eyes during visits with her colleagues Wednesday night. She is able to lift both of her legs on command and is yawning and starting to rub her eyes, doctors said."She's becoming more...

    In the wake of Saturday's shooting rampage in Arizona, a more detailed picture is emerging of Jared Lee Loughner, the man police have accused of opening fire. Loughner, 22, who is in law enforcement custody, lives near the scene of the shooting, which killed six people and injured at least a dozen others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said there's reason to believe Loughner has "a mental issue" and described him as "unhinged." Dupnik said he believed Giffords was the target of the attack.

    Perhaps alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner’s YouTube page, while it is up. The videos are full of paranoid and nonsensical statements about government “brainwash” and “mind control”. A number are structured as syllogisms. Some screenshots: Loughner also had a MySpace page that has since been taken down. Fox News reports that the last writing on the page was “Goodbye, friends.” And among his favorite books, he listed both Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto. Other books listed To Kill A Mockingbird, The Wizard of Oz, Brave New World, Alice In Wonderland, Plato’s Republic, We The Living. By early accounts, a deeply...

    Federal charges have been filed against Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunman in a shooting rampage at a Safeway supermarket in Arizona that left six dead and 13 wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The five-count criminal complaint includes an attempt to kill a member of Congress, two counts of murder in the first degree and two counts of attempted murder. FBI Director Robert Mueller said on Sunday that Loughner, 22, may face additional charges under the domestic terrorism statute. "This was an attack not only against dedicated public servants, but against our citizens," he said.

    The shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and others at a neighborhood meeting in Arizona on Saturday set off what is likely to be a wrenching debate over anger and violence in American politics. While the exact motivations of the suspect in the shootings remained unclear, an Internet site tied to the man, Jared Lee Loughner, contained antigovernment ramblings. And regardless of what led to the episode, it quickly focused attention on the degree to which inflammatory language, threats and implicit instigations to violence have become a steady undercurrent in the nation’s political culture.

    Late Saturday night, Fox News Channel’s Geraldo Rivera, discussing the Arizona Safeway shooting that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford injured and six others dead with Tea Party 365 co-founder David Webb, “went there” by invoking former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Palin’s name has been linked to reports on Saturday’s shooting thanks, in part, to the “crosshair” imagery used in her so-called “Hit List” of 20 politicians, previously posted on website “Take Back the 20.” “However unfair the link is,” said Rivera, “I think that this event affects Sarah Palin’s at least short term political future.” He then offered his prediction that,...

One of the newest is that he was a member of the conspiracy website Above Top Secret, whose website's motto is "deny ignorance." Under the username of "Erad3," a simple rearrangement of his first name, Loughner wrote perplexing and, quite frankly, insane posts several times on the website.

It was a very tiny crowd, maybe 20 people," he said. That crowd was mingling around the table and sidewalk, he said, under a banner with Giffords' name.
