Giffords Shooter Indicted On 49 Counts

Jared Lee Loughner Indicted

Good.

We're glad they're moving pretty swiftly on this, because violence like this can't go unpunished for long.

Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged shooter from that day in Arizona, has now been indicted on 49 counts.

The counts include the three counts of attempted murder (including Giffords') from January, and adds to them a plethora of others:

It charges him with murder in the death of John Roll, a federal judge, and Gabriel Zimmermann, a staff member for Giffords.

It also charges him with causing the deaths of Dorothy J. Morris, Phyllis C. Schneck, Dorwan C. Stoddard and a child at a federally provided activity, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

We really hope that this sicko gets all the repercussions he deserves for his deeds.

One of our favorite and absolutely true phrases around here is that violence is never the answer. Ever.

But what's scary is that, even if he actually is or not, mental illness can sometimes remove the ability to rationally control what that phrase is trying to imbue.

So if you see ANY kind of warning signs in someone, let's make sure to get them help and try to avoid the tragedy that could come from it!

Our thoughts go out to everybody still recovering from that day.

Thoughts?

    So sad and sensless :(
    Even if they are mentally ill, they should never, ever be let out in public again. Those lives they took away never get a second chance, why should they



  2. 2

    Programmed by the CIA.

    "So if you see ANY kind of warning signs in someone, let's make sure to get them help and try to avoid the tragedy that could come from it!"

    Charlie Sheen. Ok tried.

    This is why you need universal health care. The problem is, many Americans think it means that you have to pay for health care for the entire universe. Ha.

    Imbue?
    .
    Oh. Yeah. YOU know that word. Sure.

    This man was obviously and severely mentally ill; there is no question. The things he did were horrible, so I understand the anger people feel towards him. However, I don't think it is right to call someone with a mental illness a "sicko". This incident is a sad commentary on America's inability to address the health care needs of mentally ill individuals.

    You know Perez didn't really write this with words like "plethora", "repercussions" and "imbue".

    Sarah Palin is responsible for the attack against Giffords. Sarah Palin push people like Jared Lee Loughner to far until they claim a life to make Sarah Palin proud of her accomplishments.

    LOL at the people always claiming he is 'mentally ill' … as if that justifies anything or makes it wrong for people to express their hatred/dislike for him. If this guy had been black or hispanic - none of you would be saying that.



  10. 10

    I hope this son of a bitch rots in prison for the rest of his LIFE and then HELL FOR ETERNITY.



  11. 11

    Just another example of why mental health programs are so damn important. Oh wait, I forgot only tax cuts for the top 2 percent are a priority and the rest of can rot.

    This was such a sensless tragedy and i wish Gabby a speedy recovery.

    Be careful when putting people who do these things into the category of "mentally ill." It makes the act more acceptable. Some people are just evil.



  13. 13

    I thought the shooting was Sarah Palin's fault?



  14. 14

    So you're happy about this but continue to mock Charlie Sheen. A man who is obviously Mentally Impaired.

    I realize it isn't just you, but you should open up some eyeballs, Perez.

    What the fuck did this teach us about Mental Instability? Fucking nothing apparently.

    Meth is a chosen mental illness…..If they took blood on arrest and he had ANY chemical in his system then he should get the chair!!



  16. 16

    That pictures gives me the fucking chills. I feel like he can see me. Stop posting that shit!!!



  17. 17

    This kind of thing was bound to happen in AZ, and may again sadly. I live in Tucson, and our state has the wrong priorities…plan and simple. Education and mental health care are in despair.

    Re: Olive520 – excuse me ? Arizona has fantastic libertarian principles. Further, our mental health care is TOP notch; AHCCCS and Magellan has been providing FREE HEALTH CARE for ANYONE that needs it since 1984. WTF are you talking about ? AZ is one of the few states that has their shit together. Medical MJ + Hard on illegal immigration + gun rights + free healthcare, name another state that can do that simultaneously ? AZ = WINNING



  19. 19

    Still makes me so sad thinking about all his vicitms. It's infuriating living in AZ for so many reasons but the fact that it is so easy for someone like this clown to get a gun and ammo is scary.

    Keep fighting Gabby. We need you.



  20. 20

    this guy is more than mentally ill, he is evil. did u see the pictures of the satanic shit in his backyard? this guy had this planned for a while and im sure he probably had someone helping him. this hurts me sooo much my prayers go out to everyone in AZ and hurt by this tragedy. this guy needs to be in prison forever and they need to investigate this more!!! am i the only one who thinks so??



  21. 21

    DO YOU THINK HE ACTUALLY CARESSS??? HE KNOWS HE'LL SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT OR THE PSYCH WARD. NEXT.



  22. 22

    He should get the death penalty. I don't care if he is mentally ill or not. He just looks evil, and he did an evil thing. The look of amusement on his face in that shot above is just plain disgusting. Just execute him for his multiple crimes, instead of keeping him in a facility and draining tax payer dollars. He is a very sick individual.

    Re: TORTEZ – It's so heinous that the theory of unscrupulousnous is always raised as a possibility. The 'investigative report' will always rule that out.

    Re: TORTEZ – Plus he could just be a meth-head or something similar, or flipped out DNA.



  25. 25

    Funny how you have this 'motto' of violence isn't the answer since you got your ass beat by Will.I.Am HA

    Perez I went to High school with this guy and was actually really good friends with him. he completely changed after he dropped out. In high school he was a normal kid he was quiet but he listened and played music (mainly drums and guitar) and was really big into poetry and art. i have my year book if you want to see his pics?
