    This goofy ass isn't, "disturbed", nor does he need, "therapy", nor is he suffering from PTSD.

    He knew exactly what he was doing and he knew it was wrong. He's nothing but one of those partisan hacks that CC railed against earlier in this thread.

    Do I have any sympathy for him? Hell no!

    Whether he is a hack or not is irrelevant. His mental illness propelled his behavior. Not all hacks threaten to kill people. If they did, we'd lose 50% of the DP membership to jail for terroristic threats.

    I can't believe you making excuses for this clown. I'm totally blown away.

See how this whole thing works?

    I guess. Still, political discourse is healthy and sometimes necessary.




    And ummm blaming Palin was completely unfounded and calling Loughner a conservative or tea partier was unfounded.
    My post showed some proof that maybe he was a liberal after all. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    Where exactly is this individual supposed to be a PTSD sufferer again? He seems to be a fairly well function ing individual...he has worked for and petitions for political campaigns. He had to interrupt his tennis game to attend the political function that was the site of the shooting. He made repeated mindless baised comments even after his rhetoric has been proven lies. His behavior at this event is no different or worse than his previous. SO again...whence the mental illness?

    Color me a little skeptical about the PTSD claims. You know as well as I do that it is as overused and abused as a diagnosis (and dodge for irresponsible behaviors) as is ADHD, BPD and any of the diagnosis du'joir.

    Makes you wonder if all the people sticking up for this doofuss, took up for Loughner in the same manner. Don't it?

    My observation tells me...uh, no! Which screams, hypocrisy.

    Im sorry...you know that how exactly? And what exactly is the source of his initial PTSD? And how is his alleged PTSD experience and treatment relational too his obvious partisan bias and outbursts which have NOTHING to do with what actually occured? Sorry...it just doesnt synch. 1 = 1 has to equal '2'...not 'truck.' Where is his attempts to avoid the tramua? Hell, this cat is looking for opportunities to engage.

    I dont know about sticking up for him, but they have certainly created for him a built in defense. Its not his fault...he was cwaaaaaazy! And how could he not be with this constant climate of hatred...like...well...like what this Fuller cat is spewing...

    Hard to argue that the guy did have a bad week. Prolly reasonable to let the cops sort out the details and prosecute if appropriate.

    But I do agree that any "PTSD" type defense needs to be scrutinized. Should not be an automatic get out of jail free card....

    I dont doubt it. I dont question his stressors. And frankly, I dont think he should go to jail...I dont think they should have another 'beer summit', but Im sure the individual he threatened could show a little class, maybe extend a hand, and drop the charges. Compared to what that city has gone through, it would be a nice gesture.
