This is awful. "A Congresswoman is fighting for her life tonight after being shot at close range outside a Tucson, Arizona supermarket. (A Safeway.)
A spokesman for the local sheriff’s department said six bystanders were killed and 12 people – including the politician – seriously injured after the gunman went berserk with a Glock 9mm pistol.
Gabrielle Giffords, a 40-year-old pro-abortion Democrat whose husband is an astronaut, was holding a constituency meeting outside a Safeway store when she was shot in the head."
# Federal judge John Roll, an aide to Gabrielle Giffords and a young girl killed.Of course they will now blame this on the evil right wing. It's George Bush's fault, Sarah Palin.....I just saw someone on Facebook say it was Palin's fault because Giffords was in Palin's "cross-hairs" campaign. "Ms Giffords’s father Spencer, 75, wept when asked if his daughter had any enemies. ‘Yeah,’ he said. ‘The whole Tea Party’ – the Right wing of the Republican Party." Yup...typical.
# Hospital says Mrs Giffords is out of surgery... and they are 'optimistic' for her recovery.
# Suspect Jared Lee Loughner in custody.
# Army confirms Loughner was rejected for service.
# Witnesses say man fired at Giffords first, then 15-20 shots into the crowd.
# Lawmakers told to 'take precautions'.
# Mrs Giffords' father: 'The whole Tea Party were her enemies'.
# Mrs Giffords is mother-of-two who is married to astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, who piloted shuttles Endeavour and Discovery.
Make no mistake, this man is one sick puppy and he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Looks like, according to the news, he has a history of being unbalanced.
Some asshole, Clarence Dupnik the Pima Arizona Sheriff is talking right now on Fox News about how Arizona is to blame for being vitriolic and bigoted. He needs to SHUT THE FUCK UP.
