So this guy shoots 18 people and as of now, 6 are dead including US district Judge Roll. He killed a 9-year-old girl and shot Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford in the head. She just got out of surgery. [cnn breaking news]
This guy has a youtube account with some strange videos which are hard to make any sense out of, but worth checking out: http://www.youtube.com/user/Classitup10
His Myspace has been shut down but for reference, here it is: http://www.myspace.com/fallenasleep
This is the perp.
*******************UPDATE: more info****************
Giffords had been named as a political campaign target for conservatives in last November's mid-term elections by former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin because of her strong support for Obama's health reforms. Palin had published a "target map" on her website using images of gun sights to identify 20 House Democrats, including Giffords, for backing the new healthcare law.
While the motive for the shooting was not immediately clear, Giffords is one of 10 Democrat members of Congress who were the subject of harassment over their support for the healthcare overhaul. Giffords's Tucson constituency office was vandalised last March after she voted in favour of Obama's controversial health bill, which has been bitterly opposed by the American right.Redneck moose hunter Palin wrote on her Facebook that she sends her condolences. What BS! In my honest opinion, Palin is at least partly responsible. She puts a target over these people and says nothing is implied? Give me a break. You know deep inside this is her sick twisted fantasy. And as a result, six are dead, including an innocent little girl.
In an interview after the vandalism, Giffords referred to the animosity against her. "We're on Sarah Palin's targeted list," she said, "but the thing is, the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have to realise that there are consequences to that action." [source]
Maybe, let's hope, Palin will learn a lesson from this. WATCH WHAT YOU SAY... some crazy/desperate person just might take your thoughtless banter seriously.
ALSO: authorities believe that Laughner may have had help.
