Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona

CNN.com - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News

CNN hasn't reported her death yet, but many other outlets have.

Still conflicting reports at this point. Either way it doesn't sound good at all. Crazy f'd up people in this world.

re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona

I wish these "news" channels would just report confirmed news. They are constantly retracting reports then going back and forth. Instead they want to one up each other and be the first to report.

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona

Looks like a kid did the shooting and I say kid because they say he's 22.. So I'm only a couple years older.
Jared Lee Loughner Identified As Gabrielle Giffords Shooter (INFO, VIDEOS)

I checked out his youtube vids and I know a lot of people have fringe beliefs... But I can see how they can connect at least to what going on in the mainstream.. But his stuff just seems way, way out there.

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona

Shit that's awful. I hope she pulls through, but the article I read said the bullet went through her brain. Not good.

This m'fer walked up right behind her and fired over 20 shots into the crowd. Sick.

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona

Heard the 9 year old girl who died had just been elected to student council and was invited to meet Giffords "a fellow representative" Tragic

He is another one of these guys who was convinced he was so much smarter than the rest of us. He was clearly convinced that b/c no one agreed with him they were simply incapable of understanding him.

TO ALL SIMILAR ASSHOLES: We understand what you're saying. We just don't agree. You're not smarter than everyone else. In fact, you clearly aren't nearly as smart as you think you are. By the way, murder is always wrong.

Nut job is putting it lightly... What point is he making or trying to make with his "if-then" statement? I really cant understand what he is trying to get at...

Loughner expressed his interest in grammar and logic on the Internet as he made bizarre claims - such as that the Mars rover and the space shuttle missions were faked.

He frequently used "if-then" constructions in making nonsensical arguments. For instance: "If the living space is able to maintain the crews life at a temperature of -454F then the human body is alive in the NASA Space Shuttle. The human body isn't alive in the NASA Space Shuttle. Thus, the living space isn't able to maintain the crews life at a temperature of -454F."

Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona

ugh, F Palin, seriously

And it's about time hacks like her realize that yes, the craziness they spew to their followers can have an impact like this. I'm not blaming her, just saying it's not out of the question for some wack job like this kid to latch on to something she says and run wild with it.

This comment sums it up for me:

Sarah Palin is the type of person to yell "FIRE!" in a crowded theater and then offer her condolences to the people that got trampled.

So by her logic we should release Charles Manson from prison because he just told his followers to go out and kill people. Sure, it may have been his idea but a sane person wouldn't have followed it. Hell, I guess you could use the same logic for Bin Laden.

Seriously though, yes, it is up to the individual to act and its almost impossible to say how a mentally unstable person is going to interpret any given thought but at least SOME blame has to fall on those sending out the message. I'm not saying Palin is directly or even partially responsible for this tragedy in Arizona, but what does she expect to eventually happen when she uses her type of rhetoric?
