The Family Of Arizona Shooter Apologizes For "Heinous" Crime

| Filed under: Sad Sad

arizona-shooter-mug-shot__opt1.jpg

We wish we could say this came directly from Jared Lee Loughner himself, but alas, we think he's not feeling the slightest bit of remorse right now.

Yesterday, Jared's family released a statement regarding Saturday's brutal shooting in Tucson, Arizona. They offered their apologies to the families who had lost loved ones and more so, make so excuses for Jared's actions. The statement reads:

"There are no words that can possibly express how we feel. We wish that there were so we could make you feel better. We don't understand why this happened. It may not make any difference but we wish that we could change the heinous events of Saturday. We care very deeply about the victims and their families we are so very sorry for their loss."

It must be hard on them too. In a way, they've lost a loved one as well. It just goes to show that Jared really wasn't thinking of anyone else, not even his own family, when he decided to become a monster and kill innocent people.

So sad.

    He looks like Robert Blake in "Lost Highway". Creepy.



  2. 2

    Really fatboy, decided? He didn't decide anything, he is a nutbag, plain and simple, and he didn't go nuts because of sarah palin.

    "They offered their apologies to the families who had lost loved ones and more so, make so excuses for Jared's actions." What the fuck is wrong with you? I read the statement you put up and NO part of it seems like they're making excuses for his actions. Why would you even say that? You're such a sack of shit sometimes. I'm praying that you mean 'And more so, make NO excuses' if you do, fucking proof read you lazy-ass. Typos can get you in trouble sometimes.



  4. 4

    What's wrong with his eye?



  5. 5

    I hope Sarah Palin is feeling so proud of herself now ! Go back to Alaska and stay there you stupid idiot imbecile. Enough violence without your vitriol. Stay away from fragile people who are influenced by your vitriol.



  6. 6

    He had no choice in this or any decision. He's clearly schizophrenic and was untreated. His mind was not thinking in any rational way. It's an illness! Your blaming him is like blaming someone for getting cancer.



  7. 7

    No way. Anthony Michael Hall's evil twin brother. Or is it him.



  8. 8

    I love how many people ignore the fact the Democrats did the map with the bulls eyes on it way before Palin did it.



  9. 9

    Did you decide to be gay? He did not wake up one morning and decide to become a monster. He isclearly mentally ill. Maybe if we spend more time figuring out what went on in his mind and quit blaming the right , we can avoid this type of tragedy.



  10. 10

    Of cousre he didn'tt hink of anyone else…he is mentally ill. The parents don't understand why this happened?? It happened because they didn't get him the proper help when he needed it. *smfh*



  11. 11

    He doesnt have any eyebrows. He looks very crazed in this picture. scary.



  12. 12

    "Decided to become a monster?" Ugh, that's just as bad as people saying a man or woman chooses to be gay. A mentally ill individual doesn't decide SHIT!

    this whole incident shows how absolutely ridiculous and idiotic liberals really are. Got to love the comment by the clown on this post called Lazaro proving once again that liberls clearly have no idea what they are talking about or how the real world works.



  14. 14

    WE SHOULD NOT PAY TO KEEP THIS MAN ALIVE FOR 20 YEARS WHILE HES ON DEATH ROW.



  15. 15

    His family should have done something about knowing that he is mentally ill. I understand that it is not their fault… but they must have known that there was something wrong with him. You can tell by look in his eye. He has been kicked out of school b/c there was something wrong with him. They should have tried to have him committed OR SOMETHING. They must have known (deep down) that something like this was going to happen. Didnt he live with his parents? There WAS signs. They either chose to ignore them or they too were too scared or him. If it was that they were scared of him, then they should have called the police on him a long time ago and had him committed. There are ways to stop things like this from happening. I do feel sorry for the family. But there comes a time when you need to STEP UP and be parents. You dont stop being parents EVER.

    He has a cut over his left eye after he was tackled while reloading his gun.

    Sarah Palin, the right or the left are not to blame. This guy had mental issues. I just wonder why his parents weren't concerned about him going back to school?? Didn't they question it??

    The laws are so difficult to get people mental help if they don't want it. My aunt saw men in suits for years using "lasar guns" and we could never get help for her. Finally after making her a ward of the state they said oh yeah she's schizophrenic and they put her on medication. She was finally in her right mind but she lost so many years because she refused medical help.



  17. 17

    Mario, when did you decide to kill Britt@ny Murphy?



  18. 18

    I don't think he 'decided' to become a monster. He's mentally ill. Most schizophrenics don't hurt other people but this guy is obviously not living in reality and is completely delusional.
    You are so ignorant about mental illness Perez, I remember you mocking Lily Allen when she admitted she had body dysmorphic disorder. You should really educate yourself, especially now you are promoting a healthy lifestyle with fitperez.com.



  19. 19

    I feel bad for his family. I've known some great families that had the one "crazy" kid that basically tortured and terrorized they're family. Sometimes people are just born evil and crazy. How is it there are families where everyone is normal and successful, then there's the one person who threatens people with violence while wearing a tin-foil hat? Oh the joys of life.



  20. 20

    Haha, people he is 22 years old. The law considers him an adult. He probably didn't agree with any "treatment" and his parents couldn't institutionalize him against his will unless there was proof he would kill himself or other people. Do you actually think he would willingly take pills for his problem. His parents didn't have a choice. I've even heard of instances where parents of mentally disturbed children have called authorities to warn them about their crazy children and the police said they CAN'T do anything. They were SOL.



  21. 21

    At what point in that statement did they make excuses for his actions?



  22. 22

    Yes - he decided to become schizophrenic, it was premeditated mental illness. Your commentary is so stupid, sadly your not even trying to cause controversy or be offensive - your just being ignorant



  23. 23

    Mario - that's fine. If you want to say he "decided" to become a monster when he quite clearly has a mental disorder that was never properly diagnosed then you choose to enjoy the sexual advances and company of men.



  24. 24

    So sad for them. People will never look at them the same and will likely heap a lot of the blame on them too. Prays to them and to those who were affected by this tragedy.



  25. 25

    Re: Rachie Rach – The sad thing is they probably did try to do things to help him. Having family myself that are mentally ill, you can only do so much. You may be able to get them committed, but it doesn't mean they stay for long or continue to take any medications prescribed. You can't force them to take their meds or seek treatment. The whole mental illness/commitment process is exhausting and at the end of the day, many docs let patients out because they can't articiulate the patient is a danger to themselves or others at that moment. They cannot keep them committed because they "might" commit an offense. It is just the way it is. Sickening all the around.

    Loughner is obviously mentally disturbed. Otherwise he wouldn't have done this. I think it would be wise to spend some energy focusing on Arizona's (and the United State's) mediocre gun laws. Why anyone needs a gun is beyond me.



  27. 27

    As a family, you cannot 'do something' when someone is an adult, unless they want help. Until they become violent and you can prove that, the authorities will do nothing. His parents have lost a child and their lives will be devastated for years to come–I am sure they have gone through hell and back with him.



  28. 28

    First of all, ENOUGH of the Sarah Palin/right-wing conservative nuts business. It is TOTALLY baseless! Loughner is INSANE! He hated ALL government and started his vendetta against Gabby Giffords before anyone outside of Alaska had even heard of Sarah Palin. He asked Giffords a crazy question in 2007, which she didn't answer. He took her not answering as a personal slight and that's where it all began. It has nothing to do with Palin, the Tea Party, the Republicans, etc. GET OVER IT! As for his parents, their kid was arrested five different times and kicked out of college all for being crazy. To say that they don't know why this happened is continuing to put their heads in the sand. He needed help, they didn't get it for him. I feel bad for them, but they should have done more to help their kid. The laws that say that an insane person is free till they hurt themselves or others make us all vulnerable.

    Re: bring it – It actually costs more to execute someone than to keep them locked up for the rest of their life. It's why there's so few executions.



  30. 30

    Re: Kiliana Nightwolf – really? well thats stupid, how does it cost more to kill someone then to keep them with shelter and food for 20 years +???



  31. 31

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – Gosh, you seem filled with so much vitriol.



  32. 32

    Re: nicky45 – The only way to stop this happening is to stop selling guns in supermarkets



  33. 33

    I am not sure how I feel about him being labeled as mentally unstable as if he has an illness. To me it seems like an excuse. Look at the grin on his face. He seems full of pride as if he knew exactly what he was doing.



  34. 34

    i don't see the family trying to make excuses dickhead. you should be more sensitive, seriously. you have no idea how devastated his poor mum must be knowing her little boy is a murderer.



  35. 35

    At least liberals can spell!
    I don't blame the family, and pity them as long as there was nothing to report about possible violent behaviour. However, whoever knew he was mentally ill and had a gun and didn't report him, yes, they're partially to blame.



  36. 36

    Perez, The mentally ill don't "decide" to be ill. And this guy is obviously mentally ill. He was kicked out of school because the professors and students couldn't deal with his weird crazy outbursts in class. Students who were his classmates write that they were afraid he'd come into class someday and kill them all. And the U.S. Army rejected his application to join. There were plenty of signs that he was crazy and should have been put into an institution to treat the mentally ill long ago. This is a clear indictment of our sorry mental health system in America. When I was a boy, mentally ill people were put into state hospitals to care for them. Then along came Ronald Reagan, who closed down mental health facilities and pushed these people out onto the streets. We've had problems–like a huge homeless population–ever since. It's time to face up to the fact that we've got to repair the damage Ronald Reagan did. This is all his fault.



  37. 37

    I'm not into how much stereotyping and discrimination is going on against mental ill people here. Mentally ill people should not be labeled as "crazy", "evil" or "nutbag", ever.
    It is pretty much the same as freely going around and calling people with dark skin by the N word or calling homosexual people the F word.

    Some people are born and/or bred in environments that stimulate "abnormal" brain activity. Unfortunately, in 1% of the population, this manifests as violent psychosis. I'm not saying that violence during psychotic episodes can be explained away and fault should be removed from the individual completely, but there needs to be an understanding that these people in the heat of the moment have little to no concept of the reality or impulse control that the average, non-violent person exhibits.
    What happened was awful and painful, but this person needed help, help that is VERY underprovided and unaccessible for the majority of people due to the fact that there is so little funding/support by the government and so much hatred, bias, and misunderstanding toward mental illness by 95% of the population.
    If you want to make change happen, do some research and help contribute to your local Mental Health Association. And please, for the love of all that is good in this world, do not decide that all mentally ill people are unstable and capable of violence because that would show gross ignorance and perpetuation of this problem by us, the "normal" people.



  38. 38

    At what part in the statement that the Laughner family do they, "make so excuses for Jared's actions,"?



  39. 39

    Make him work at Safeway stocking shelves for the rest of his miserable life. That'll teach him, fucking loser.



  40. 40

    Oh, and if they give him the death penalty, make him eat out Sarah Palin in the chair.



  41. 41

    You need to go back to school Perez, because you are seriously lacking in comprehension. The man is Crazy with a capital C. He is not going to apologize, because he is nuttier than a bag of almonds.
