    As to the 21 year old guy I was referring to earlier who shared the nutjob's video on his myspace, he too has studied in Mountain View Highschool in Tucson, like the killer.

    Quit overthinking it and looking for some angle, this isn't the time, or the place for it.
    In other words you wont answer my question? I am not looking for any angle but for a clarification to your comments.

    If you mean that elected officials have to accept a risk, then I would agree somewhat. The US President is always at risk.. but a local politician... no way.

    However if you meant that all people on the government payroll .. then we have a problem.

    So which is it?

    How exactly does a representative democracy function, Vicchio, if the elected representatives have to worry about getting shot by some nutjob if they don't make 100% of the people happy 100% of the time.

    If you were talking about cops, that's one thing. Cops understand that their job entails necessary risks. But you're talking about a judge and a congresswoman. There is no way in hell that part of the job is a risk of being shot.

    Jesus H. ****ing Christ.

    Sigh.

    There is a shooting. You here there are several dead. That group includes a judge and a congresswoman.

    I would RATHER hear that the officials had died, then civilians, because they atleast understand there is an inherent risk in being who they are.

    Much like if you heard there was a NASCAR wreck where the car went into the stands and there was a death. I'd rather it be the driver, who knew the risk, then it be a person in the stands. Not a perfect analogy because obvious one is an evil act the other is an accident.

    You are in a tizzy the wrong way, for the wrong reasons. Where did I say it was an acceptable risk?

    I said they understand there is an inherent risk, being a public official, that there is at least some level of threat against you.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    That is the one he favorited. His youtube channel was linked earlier.

    Here is a link to his youtube cahnnel with 5 videos he made in it. For some the comments section has all the text for the video: http://www.youtube.com/user/Classitu.../1/nHoaZaLbqB4

    You can repeat this statement 60 times, and it will still be as ridiculously moronic as the first time you said it.

    Re: Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Shot In Arizona

    From another youtube video of the killer:

    Hello,

    I know you’re illiterate! This is the greatest protest for exposure into a wrongful act. The school is breaking the constitution. If you watch the video then you’ll understand. The teachers are taking advantage of you in the first and Fifth Amendment. The United States Constitution, which is the law, can be broken at this school.

    Thank you and goodnight!

    Jared -

    The video was apparently removed by the killer.
    I found it in the myspace page of the 21 years old guy I keep mentioning who's studied in Mountain View Highschool together with the killer, here:

    Watched the video a little while ago. Appears the creator had some symbolism injected in there between the trash bag pants and the missing arm and the lame poetry....but i didn't even begin to "get it".
