    DHS has connected Loughner to a group called, "American Renaissance". American Renaissance says Loughner has never been a member.

    The guy seems to be one of the more insane people I've ever encountered.
    I suspect there are a lot of people out there with this kind of insanity, but they are all talk until they pull a trigger...

    My first impression fo Dupnik, is that he's a dumbass, too. Especially, if he's going to jump on that band wagon, before the bodies are even cold.

    Anyone that would blame this on Sarah Palin is a piece of ****.

    Here is part of the definition of "assassination" from wiki...

    "Assassinations may be prompted by religious, ideological, political, or military motives. Additionally, assassins may be prompted by financial gain, revenge, a desire to acquire status within a group, or a psychological need to garner personal public recognition."

    ....and at this point the motivations of the psycho are not clear. He may have attacked the Congresswoman for some specific political position she had. Or maybe just she represented authority in general. Or maybe simply because she was a public figure and it garnered him some desired infamy.


    But then again. Maybe he was just a ****ing homicidal maniac...

    A fellow who was in my graduating class became quite notorious a couple decades back and was in the national spotlight for some especially egregious sex crimes, and my rememberance ofthe fellow is that he had no friends. When I read the news, I wasn't really all that surprised. I couldn't see THAT particular event coming, but neither was I shocked by it (other than the visceral).

    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.
    Do not presume that. Accomplice does not mean the individual organized the attack or participated in it. If you release a large rabid dog into a pen of kittens it does not take much imagination to figure what will happen. The mentally ill are certainly susceptible to manipulation by the mentally stable.

    This is very hard for me to type, as I just learned this.

    The little 9yo girl who was killed was there because she was recently elected to student council and was brought there by a neighbor who thought the little girl would enjoy it.

    I'm sorry, I have to end this post now. I haven't cried this hard in years. They just showed her picture. She was beautiful beyond words. Ironically enough, she was born on September 11th, 2001.

    Funny how a tragedy brought us this beautiful child, and yet another took her away.

    Rest in peace little angel.

    The little 9yo girl who was killed was there because she was recently elected class president or something of that nature and wanted to go talk to the congresswoman about what it was like to hold office and what public service was like.

    I'm sorry, I have to end this thread now. I haven't cried this hard in years. They just showed her picture. She was beautiful beyond words.

    She was born on 9/11.

    So sad. And apparently, she was born on 9/11. Poor little sweet thing.

    Kind of makes me wonder if you would be less emotional were the child an ugly little creature.
