    There is so much hatred of both sides that some with mental imbalances will act on it. You see this tendency to make light of harm to the president. There was a recent thread here about a MMA fighter who wanted to beat down Obama. Many scoffed that he really didn't mean it and I doubt he actually wanted to attack the president. But is sets up a precedent that it is more and more okay to approve of such hatred.
    The Pima County Sheriff spoke to that. He said we have free speech, but it is not without consequences, and that that people who are unbalanced are especially susceptible to vitriol.

    I Dont know if that is true or not but Keith Olberman along with other tools like him (Rush & Beck) on both sides are part of the PROBLEM and not part of the SOLUTION.

    Arizona Rep. Giffords shot, 6 killed in rampage - Yahoo! News

    They're thinking Loughner might have had an accomplice at this point. I personally don't think so, because then this shooting would have been marginally more organized. It seemed a lot more like some crazy guy on his own.

    Profile of the man who shot Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, Arizona, before turning the gun on the crowd


    The picture emerging last night of the man suspected of shooting Gabrielle Giffords was that of a loner with eccentric, if not extreme, views.

    A series of YouTube videos believed to have been posted by Jared Lee Loughner, 22, indicated a focus on literacy and currency - as well as his distrust of the government.

    "Hello, my name is Jared Lee Loughner," reads one of a series of sentences that appear in one of the videos. "This video is my introduction to you! My favorite activity is conscience dreaming; the greatest inspiration for my political business information. Some of you don't dream - sadly."

    The video, posted on the internet on 15 December, takes an overtly political turn, lashing out at the state and emphasising the significance of the US constitution. "The majority of citizens in the united states of America [sic] have never read the United States of America's constitution. You don't have to accept the federalist laws," it says.

    "In conclusion, reading the second United States constitution, I can't trust the current government because of the ratifications: the government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar. No! I won't pay debt with a currency that's not backed by gold and silver! No! I won't trust in God!"

    Investigators were also last night poring over copies of a MySpace page that belonged to a Jared Loughner. It was removed within minutes of the suspected gunman's name becoming public. It included a mysterious "Goodbye friends" message published hours before the shooting.

    WTF??? Where'd that come from? That's just plain nasty, Chevy. Just. Plain. Nasty.

    Edit: Ahh, I see. Double thanks for pointing that out, Repeter.
