Where are the Photos of Jared Loughner on the Day of the Shooting?

Why are there absolutely NO photos or video clips of Jared Lee Loughner at the scene of the crime, in cuffs, or being transported to jail/court, etc. etc.?

I've seen pictures of Giffords moments before the shooting, talking to people, wearing her red suit. I've seen moving pictures of investegators on scene after the shooting. Many photos of even the dead bodies covered in sheets in the parking lot.

But there are absolutely no photos of Loughner being arrested? In this day and age when absolutely everyone is walking around taping incidents of shootings, police brutality and other crimes?

Something is very fishy here!

Jared Loughner's Math Teacher DROPPED!

Here's the story from KGUN9 (they're really on top of the Jared-related stories!) My commentary is in RED:

When Pima Community College math instructor Ben McGahee told the world about his harrowing experiences with his former student, accused mass killer Jared Lee Loughner, the first documented reaction of college administrators was to get annoyed, and to exchange snarky emails about McGahee behind his back. Not surprised since this is what all the illiterate and inarticulate teachers did about Loughner! How childish these teachers are! Having gone through college, I am not surprised at all.
Their latest reaction is more direct.
9 On Your Side has learned that the college has elected not to renew McGahee's adjunct teaching contract, which expired over the weekend.  McGahee's name does not appear on the Summer or Fall class schedules.  The Summer session starts next week.
In response to an email query from KGUN9 News, Vice Chancellor of Marketing Rachelle Howell denied that the college has fired McGahee, and indicated that the door was still open for his potential return.  She said that McGahee has worked for the college "sporadically since 2005."  She acknowledged that his current contract as an adjunct instructor has expired, "like that of all adjuncts who taught that semester."  Howell did not directly address the question of how and why the college selected McGahee's contract in particular for non-renewal over the Summer term.  But she did note that the number of adjunct instructors needed for any given semester depends on the number of students who register.
As for his exclusion from the Fall schedule, Howell wrote, "Typically, new adjunct instructor contracts for Fall are not signed until shortly before the beginning of the semester and continue through registration.... Mr. McGahee is eligible to teach in fall 2011 should the need arise."
But that need has already arisen for most of McGahee's colleagues at the college.
Adjunct faculty members often work part-time.  Part-time faculty members at Pima College reportedly outnumber full-time staff by about a three-to-one margin.  A random check of 100 employees currently listed on Pima's register of mathmatics instructors shows that about 80% of them have been awarded classes on the college's Fall schedule.  Logically speaking, given that full-time vs. part-time ratio, it follows that many if not most of those who landed Fall classes must be adjuncts, like McGahee.  The employee directory listings do not always differentiate between the instructors by title and status.  But some of those appearing in the Fall schedule are specifically noted as being on the adjunct faculty.
In addition, the college's posted on-line jobs page lists current openings for adjunct mathematics instructors.  Hah! There you have it folks. The virtual face slap. The listing describes the location for the openings as "Multiple Campus Locations."
Pima College has not yet responded to a follow-up email from KGUN9 News seeking further clarification.
In her statement, Howell also pointed out that even though he will not be teaching at Pima for now, that does not mean McGahee is unemployed.  She noted that McGahee also works as an instructor at a local academy.
When reached by email, McGahee declined to comment on Pima's decision to drop him from the teaching roster.
McGahee burst into public view the day after Jared Lee Loughner did.  He gave a number of interviews to the media about his experiences with Loughner, describing the student's behavior as bizarre, frightening and disruptive.  I should note here that I've read many comments online that the teacher seemed a bit strange himself... and I have to agree somewhat. But maybe (reading his demeanor) he feared for his own well-being in relation to what the school was capable of. In an interview with Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on January 9, McGahee explained to a national audience the difficulty he had in convincing college counselors and administrators to do something about Loughner.
Remarks of that type are not the kind likely to endear an employee to his or her superiors, and McGahee's comments certainly didn't.  As KGUN9 News previously reported, McGahee's appearance that night provoked a derisive exchange between communications coordinator Paul Schwalbach and administrator Karen Lutrick. The exchange belittled McGahee and gloated that he'd had not been a better communicator. Schwalbach wrote, "Overall, the tone was one of self-aggrandizement:  'Because of my intrepid actions, we avoided a massacre at Pima.' Uh, huh."  To this Lutrick replied, "Agreed. I must have rolled my eyes 20 times in the 7 minute interview.  At least he wasn't eloquent or charismatic." LOL @ the bitchy backstabbing teachers. They don't sound any better than McGhee, who they're criticizing! Maybe they wanted their 15 minutes of fame and are mad not to have gotten it.
McGahee's comments at the time violated a campus-wide media blackout imposed by Chancellor Roy Flores, who issued an edict right after the shooting ordering employees to refer all media inquiries to Schwalbach.  What are you trying to hide? After 9 On Your Side revealed the email mentioned above, McGahee violated the ban again by way of an email interview with 9 On Your Side.  In that interview, McGahee said that he held no grudge against the administrators who'd exchanged those derisive emails.  He then expressed hope that something can be learned from the college's experiences with Loughner.   "In hindsight, he should have been treated or evaluated," McGahee wrote.  He was very careful not to express any specific or direct criticism of the way the college handled Loughner, and went out of his way to say that he thought Pima Community College was a great place to work.  But he concluded, "PCC might have to make its policies more strict."
Pima Community College itself seems to be leaning in that very direction.  Last week it announced action steps to bring more expert resources to the table and to improve its method of handling potentially threatening students in the future.
In refusing to allow any of its employees to speak about Loughner, the college has cited, repeatedly, a federal law known as FERPA - the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.  That law prohibits colleges and universities from releasing educational records from a student's centrally maintained file.
The law does not, however, appear to extend directly to the type of interviews McGahee has given.  FERPA guidance posted on the U.S. Department of Education website specifically protects the ability of instructors to speak about their experiences with students.  It states the following:  "FERPA generally prohibits the improper disclosure of personally identifiable information derived from education records. Thus, information that an official obtained through personal knowledge or observation, or has heard orally from others, is not protected under FERPA. This remains applicable even if education records exist which contain that information, unless the official had an official role in making a determination that generated a protected education record."
Under this guidance, it would appear that under FERPA McGahee is able to talk about any matter regarding Loughner except information in Loughner's file that McGahee personally determined, such as Loughner's grade in McGahee's specific class.  In his Fox interview, McGahee did mention the fact that Loughner had failed an earlier Elementary Algebra class.  Loughner's heavily redacted transcript shows that Loughner did take such a class in the Fall of 2007.  The college confirmed on Monday that McGahee was not the teacher of that earlier class, which would appear to leave him free to talk about it under FERPA.
PCC has already faced one public correction for its overbroad interpretation of FERPA.  Earlier this month Pima County Superior Court Judge Stephen Villarreal sided with The Arizona Republic, and found that the college was wrong in trying to use FERPA as an excuse to withhold 255 pages of disputed Loughner emails the college was fighting to keep from the public.  In his ruling Judge Villarreal wrote, "Simply because emails exist on a central server and in inboxes at some point does not classify those documents as education records."
If, for the sake of argument, Pima is dumping McGahee because he defied the media ban -- is that legal?
9 On Your Side consulted an employment law expert, attorney Don Awercamp.  Awercamp says the free-speech balancing test works in McGahee's favor, noting that the topic McGahee was addressing is of great public concern.  But he also noted that should McGahee try to defend his rights in court, he's going to have a tough time of it.  "It's the employee's burden to prove that it was an illegal motivation on the part of the employer," Awercamp told KGUN9 News. "And that can oftentimes be difficult burden to establish."
Among the emails the court forced Pima to release last week were several documenting McGahee's struggle to get something done about Loughner. Sounds to me that PIMA is embarrassed not to have done anything about Loughner and is taking it out on McGahee.
As 9 On Your Side has previously reported, McGahee's efforts to get Loughner removed from his classroom began on June 1, 2010.  That's when Loughner picked a bizarre fight with McGahee over the numeral 6.  Loughner, in a vehement but nonsensical confrontation, insisted that the numeral "6" should be pronounced "eighteen," and refused to back down.  McGahee was also concerned that Loughner had turned in a math test covered with gibberish, including the words "Mayhem Fest" scrawled across the top.  McGahee complained up the ranks.  Counselors and campus police investigated but eventually had to tell McGahee that the best they could do was to stick Loughner back in class and tell him to behave himself.
Counselor DeLisa Siddall informed McGahee of that decision by email on June 2.  She indirectly acknowledged Loughner's mental issues, writing, "He has extreme views and frequently meanders from the point.  He seems to have difficulty understanding how his actions impact others, yet very attuned to his unique ideology that is not always homogeneous."  But she concluded that the best the college could do now was to give Loughner a warning.   "Since his resolution was to remain silent in class and successfully complete the course, I had no grounds to keep him out of class."
In his response to Siddall on June 5, McGahee did not hide his disappointment with the way things were going.  "I talked with Pat Houston on Friday," he wrote. "It looks like the police is not going to follow up with Jared.  I really think someone should be in the classroom to assess his behavior. I have no idea what he is capable of doing.  I just want our class to be safe.  Thanks."
Later, when those words had turned prophetic, McGahee would repeat them to the public by way of the news media.
McGahee is the only one of Loughner's instructors to defy the college's media ban, and to help the public understand what went on between the college and Loughner.  At the end of his interview with the Fox News Channel in January, anchor Shepard Smith thanked McGahee, and closed with these words:  "One of the great things about America and our system is you can't be punished for something that you talk about."
But in making those remarks, Smith was referencing Loughner's rights.  Not McGahee's.

Sheriff's Release Jared Lee Loughner's Records

This was posted on KGUN9 back in January. My commentary will be in RED.

On Wednesday the Pima County Sheriff's Department released a dozen files documenting contact its  deputies have had over the years with Tucson mass shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner and his family.   The release follows a report in the New York Times stating that deputies had been to the home many times over the years.
Jared Loughner first shows up in Pima County Sheriff's records beginning Sept. 23, 2004, when he reported a fellow student at his high school stuck him in the arm with a pin.

Loughner told deputies he became dizzy and had to be helped to the school nurse.

Loughner's parents decided not to press charges against the student. They did want 
the student to disclose whether he was HIV positive, however. What on EARTH was on that pin!? How common is it for students to go around sticking others with needles? That is SICK! I wonder why his parents did not press charges. For privacy maybe? That clearly is ASSAULT. I wonder if he was infected with something. Or maybe a toxin? Who was the student? Was he working for someone? Sound very MK Ultra to me. **The kid's name is Anthony R. Kurz. Found it on the crime report released by the Sheriffs Dept. Maybe this is him:!/profile.php?id=100000801872982 ...says he likes tattoos. Live in Tuscon. Maybe he made a tattoo pen. So many people did that at my high school. Giving themselves INFECTIONS trying to hard to be "cool."

The student told authorities he may have poked Jared with his needle-pen contraption that he made, but he didn't remember if he had. How could you not remember assaulting someone purposefully with a needle? And they just let the idiot go!
No one was arrested in this incident.
On May 12, 2006, Loughner was referred to Juvenile Court for being a minor in  possession of liquor. The outcome of that case could not be determined Wednesday. Juvenile Court records are sealed by law.

It was the assistant principal of his high school, Mountain View, in Marana, who contacted authorities. She said Loughner had been in the nurse's office "currently  under the influence of some type of intoxicant, most likely vodka."

Loughner was taken to Northwest Hospital because he was so intoxicated, a sheriff's report says.

He told emergency room workers he had drunk 350 ml of vodka between 1:30 a.m. and 9 a.m.
Loughner said he drank because his father had yelled at him and Jared got "very upset."
He said he stole the liquor from his father's liquor cabinet. I'd like to know more about his relationship with his father.

Deputies at the hospital, responding to the call from the school, said they arrested 
him at the hospital for consuming alcohol. Loughner signed the arrest document and
remained at the hospital for treatment.

More than a year later, Loughner was arrested on Sept. 9, 2007 for possession of a controlled substance - marijuana, and for possession of a "multicolored" marijuana pipe, packages of Zig
Zag rolling papers and a "marijuana roach." He also had a glass marijuana pipe "with
residue" in his possession.

The marijuana was found inside a van in which he was a passenger.

"I smelled a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming off Mr. Loughner's person," a deputy wrote in his report.

Loughner had a marijuana pipe in his front pocket. He told deputies it was his and  that he had already smoke the marijuana that was in it. He was cited and given a  court date for an initial appearance.

Loughner was able to enter a Pima County diversion program to resolve the criminal case. The case was dismissed after he completed the court-ordered program.

ABout a year later, on Oct. 2, 2008, Loughner told sheriff's deputies someone stole his identity and posted a picture of him when he was 16 on a MySpace page.

The deputy noted that Loughner was slow in answering his questions. "He often hesitated as if he was trying to think of an explanation," the deputy wrote in his report. So was it a lie? Maybe he simply forgot his password and wanted to delete the account, so made up this elaborate story? This reminds me of what Cho seung-Hui's writing mentor said. She would ask Cho a question and there would be 10-20 seconds of silence before he spoke. And those 10-20 seconds can seem like an eternity of awkwardness. Same thing?

When deputies tried to contact Laugher after this report was taken, no one answered and there was no voicemail set up. Purposeful evasion?

A man Loughner called "Alex," whom he suspected of stealing his identity, could not be located by authorities. Will we ever find out who Alex is? Or if he even really existed? Maybe it's Loughner's other identity or personality a la Fight Club?

Loughner said he reported the incident because he was trying to get a job and didn't want prospective employers seeing "someone using his identity on their profile."

Sheriff Clarence Dupnik told the Associated Press that on the morning of the Jan. 8, 2011 shooting, Jared Loughner's father saw his son take a black bag out of a car trunk.

The sheriff says the father approached Loughner, and he mumbled something [what??] and took off running. The father got in his truck and chased his son into the desert as he fled on foot, the AP said. This is just so bizarre. The image I have in my head of Jared running into the desert with a black bag. Also reminds me of his flag burning video.

Later that same morning, Jared Loughner took a cab to the Safeway store at Ina and
Oracle road, where Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was meeting with constituents at 10 a.m. - her first congresswoman "on the corner" event here since the start of the 2011 Congress. [People try to turn the whole cab ride into a conspiracy, asking why Jared would take a cab when he has his own car. It's because he did not want to go back to his house to pick up his car after being chased by his father. And if he was going to assassinate Giffords, what is the point of taking his own car. I doubt he was planning on fleeing. Assassins never flee. They either kill themselves on the spot or wait around to be apprehended.]

Loughner walked inside the Safeway to change a $20 bill to pay the cab driver. Then he walked over to Giffords and shot her in the head.

He killed six people, including a child, and wounded a dozen others.
Giffords survived the shooting and is in intensive care at University Medical Center.

Loughner is in federal custody in Phoenix. He is accused in federal court of attempted assassination of a congresswoman and the killing of a federal judge. Why are government people held as more important human beings when it comes to things like this? Killing a federal worker is a worse crime than killing a child? It can get you a harsher sentence. What does that tell you about what the government thinks about us nobodies? Us have-nots?

He will be charged separately in state court for the killings of the other four victims and assaults on the other victims.

Loughner used a Glock handgun with a magazine that fired 31 rounds without reloading.
He was tackled by several people in the crowd who had come to see Giffords, as he paused to reload.
With the releasing of their records, Pima County Sheriff's spokesman Jason Ogan provided a written statement:
"The Pima County Sheriff's Department is making available all reports where the Sheriff's Department had personal contact with Jared Loughner prior to the shooting.  The following is a list of these reports:
"09/23/2004 Assault   (Victim)
"05/15/2006 Liquor Laws   (Juvenile Arrest)
"09/10/2007 Suspicious Vehicle  (Cite & Release Arrest)
"10/03/2008 Identity Theft   (Victim)

A Teacher from Loughner's School Arrested, on Site of Shooting!

So apparently a teacher at Pima Community College, Jared Loughner's old school, was arrested at the very location the mass shooting took place, and this is the fist time I'm hearing of it.
His name is Brian Hewlett and he teaches sociology. He has a website but at this very moment it seems to be under construction:

Here's the full story from KGUN9 posted March 1, 2011with my own commentary in RED:

A Pima Community College spokesperson said late Wednesday afternoon that the school and its attorneys are reviewing an incident involving teacher Brian Hewlett. Hewlett, who teaches at the same college campus where Jared Lee Loughner went to school, was arrested last week after a bizarre incident at the site of the murders that Loughner is accused of committing.
According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department incident report, at about 4:30 PM on Friday February 25, Hewlett sat down in front of the Safeway on Oracle Road and began chanting.  It was the same parking lot where a deranged gunman opened fire on January 8, killing 6 people and wounding 13 others.
When Hewlett refused to leave, the store manager called deputies.  The report states that when the first deputy arrived he found Hewlett clad in a tank top, jeans and socks sitting in front of the store in a "yoga position" and wearing white earphones.   He was chanting over and over again, "We are the ones you have been waiting for," and occasionally throwing in, "We are the chosen ones." Who is he referring to when he says WE? And who is YOU? Chosen ones? Chosen for what?? My first thought when I read "we" I thought he meant Jared, himself and maybe others?
The deputy asked him to stop.  Hewlett did stop just long enough to say, "Freedom of religion," and then added, "freedom of speech," [He's sounding a lot like Jared here, who was upset that the teachers were not allowing him his Freedom of Speech.] before resuming his chants.  After that, the deputy wrote, the chanting man "did not acknowledge my existence and did not move."
The deputy noted that at this point Hewlett "was definitely causing a disruption," with all the people coming in and out of the store, including children, taking notice.
The deputy called for backup.  When the second deputy arrived, the two of them cuffed Hewlett, who initially resisted arrest by struggling to prevent deputies from moving his hands.  Then, according to the report, when the arresting deputies got him to the patrol car Hewlett "began to rant and rave about the individuals who were killed at the Safeway, advising, 'we are the ones you have been waiting for.'"  Again, it sounds more like he sympathizes with Jared than the victims. I'd like to know verbatim what he said in relation to the victims. Oddly it is omitted here.
The report does not indicate precisely what he said about the shooting victims, but notes that eventually he calmed down and said, "this is not about you" in a tone of voice that the deputy described as "calm and understanding."
When contacted by 9 On Your Side Tuesday night and again on Wednesday, Hewlett said he did not want to comment.   However, one of Hewlett's aquaintances told KGUN9 News on Wednesday that Hewlett said he just wanted to memorialize the shooting victims in his own fashion. Not so odd in itself but what he was chanting is very cryptic. What does it mean? It reminds me of the name of this blog. The aliens CHANTED it to me! "They don't see through us. They don't see through us." Very rhythmically, and I have yet to decode or figure out who THEY and US refers to. Maybe we are being mind controlled? I wonder if Hewlitt has been abducted by aliens or had experiences. I will try to make contact with him and see what he has to say about it.
According to Hewlett's résumé posted on a University of Arizona website, he holds a doctorate in Sociology from the U of A.  The Pima Community College on-line employee directory lists him as a sociology instructor at the college's Downtown and Northwest campuses.
That résumé also indicates that Hewlett was teaching an Introduction to Sociology course at Pima College at the same time in 2006 when Loughner took that course.   But in a brief statement late Wednesday, spokeswoman Lynne Wakefield told KGUN9 News that Hewlett was not one of Loughner's instructors.
Hewlett has a website containing his academic credentials, articles, various philosophy statements, video clips from some of his lectures and so on.  On his home page, he describes himself as a "social scientist and edutainer."  In one entry on the website, Hewlett said he belongs to no specific religion, and is writing a book on mysticism. 
Shortly after KGUN9 News contacted him, his home page disappeared and was replaced with a notice implying that the site was under construction.
Sheriff's deputies booked Hewlett on a charge of Criminal Trespass in the Third Degree.

Hewlitt also has a Twitter page:!/brianhewlett
