  • 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...

    On the season premier of "Real Time" host Bill Maher directly compared the Tucson shooter to Sarah Palin. "And whatever you do, do not compare her to the shooter because he is a gun-loving lunatic who can't hold a job and leaves rambling message on the internet. So, there is -- please, there's -- come on. He's on MySpace, she's on Facebook!," Maher said.

    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...

    Wounded U.S. congresswoman moving all her limbs, becoming more aware of her surroundings TUCSON, Ariz. — U.S. Rep. 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...

    Glenn opened the TV show tonight by discussing Jared Lee Loughner’s attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that left her in critical condition and six people dead, including a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge. When Glenn found out about the shooting, he issued a note to his staff: No statement whatsoever, no speculation. It’s common sense, Glenn said, but the rest of the media didn’t seem to think that. Ever since the shooting, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn have all been blamed for the actions of an insane individual. But as Glenn pointed out, the media script does...

    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. "As we understand it, there have been law enforcement contacts with the...

    It started Election Day November 2000 when Al Gore lost the presidential election to George W. Bush. That night Gore conceded the loss to Bush but then on the advice of Democrat partisans who cared more about the Democrat Party and Liberal Ideology above the political cohesiveness of the country Gore took his concession back. (See Global Political Meltdown) This launched the most tumultuous political period in recent American history, all because of Gore’s decision to throw the presidential election into utter chaos. Mr. Gore cast America into the great red state blue state divide in which we have witnessed...

    NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE - The Corner ^ | January 08, 2011 | Daniel Foster
    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...

    WASHINGTON -- His MySpace page included a photograph of a U.S. history textbook, on top of which he had placed a handgun. He prepared a series of Internet videos in which he posted odd statements about the gold standard, the community college he attended and SWAT teams. Jared Lee Loughner, in these few public hints, offered a sense of his alienation from society, confusion, anger as well as foreboding that his life could soon come to an end. Friends talked of how he had become reclusive in recent years, and his public... --snip-- Another former high school classmate said that...

    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.

    Below will go a list of some hateful, outrageous and incendiary comments and other similar stuff including death threats from people on the left wing spectrum of politics in order to prove the left's violent rhetoric has been getting out of hand and is inviting kooks to commit real acts of violence such as the shooting yesterday in Arizona by Jared Lee Loughner. It will be in no particular order and link to previous FR articles as evidence. I'll keep updating as I find more after this is posted. Anybody, of course can chime in.
