The shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has brought out all of the political cheap shots, with many on the left continuing to blame the incident on talk radio, Fox News, Sarah Palin and in the case of Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, GOP members of Congress rejection of the Obama agenda. However, the more the media and police find out about Jared Loughner the shooter the more we learn that he had no political agenda and was a very disturbed psycho.
USA Today, reported that Loughner’s teachers and classmates at Pima Community College, believed him to be mentally unstable and possibly dangerously violent.
“He was one of the last kids to come in, and he sat down and almost immediately started laughing to himself in a way that was just kind of creepy,” recalls Alex Kotonias, 20, who sat behind him. “And then, as soon as the teacher started going over the syllabus, he had this outburst out of nowhere, didn’t even raise his hand, and started asking the teacher some sort of weird questions about whether he believed in mind control.”Adjunct professor Ben McGahee, 28, says, “I remember going home and thinking to myself, ‘Is he going to bring a weapon to class?’ “
In an earlier report McGahee described:
McGahee said he advised campus administrators about Loughner’s behavior and school officials at one point posted a security officer in the classroom. He described Loughner as not overtly hostile, but prone to bizarre, sometimes confrontational outbursts in which his face would get “bright red.”
“I felt like he was a threat,” McGahee said, noting that Loughner was suspended and didn’t return after three or four weeks of the eight-week class.
Lynda Sorenson was in that basic algebra class, taught by McGahee and attended by Loughner. At the time she sent out emails to her friends about her crazy classmate.
In early June, Lynda Sorenson took a basic Algebra class, one of her classmates was Jared Loughner, the shooter who killed six people and critically wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords this past Saturday. Sorenson sent e-mails to friends from last summer revealing her growing concern about Loughner’s strange and disruptive behavior in class.
- From June 1, the first day of class: “One day down and nineteen to go. We do have one student in the class who was disruptive today, I’m not certain yet if he was on drugs (as one person surmised) or disturbed. He scares me a bit. The teacher tried to throw him out and he refused to go, so I talked to the teacher afterward. Hopefully he will be out of class very soon, and not come back with an automatic weapon.”
- From June 10: “As for me, Thursday means the end to week two of algebra class. It seems to be going by quickly, but then I do have three weeks to go so we’ll see how I feel by then. Class isn’t dull as we have a seriously disturbed student in the class, and they are trying to figure out how to get rid of him before he does something bad, but on the other hand, until he does something bad, you can’t do anything about him. Needless to say, I sit by the door.”
- From June 14:”We have a mentally unstable person in the class that scares the living crap out of me. He is one of those whose picture you see on the news, after he has come into class with an automatic weapon. Everyone interviewed would say, Yeah, he was in my math class and he was really weird. I sit by the door with my purse handy. If you see it on the news one night, know that I got out fast…”
A sinister shrine reveals a chilling occult dimension in the mind of the deranged gunman accused of shooting a member of Congress and 19 others.
Hidden within a camouflage tent behind Jared Lee Loughner’s home sits an alarming altar with a skull sitting atop a pot filled with shriveled oranges.
A row of ceremonial candles and a bag of potting soil lay nearby, photos reveal.
Experts on Sunday said the elements are featured in the ceremonies of a number of occult groups.
“Sometimes our trash would be out, and he would come up and yell that the trash stinks,” said a next-door neighbor, Anthony Woods, 19. “He’s very aggressive.” Woods’ Father Steven said that the shooter was a loner.
This should eliminate any discussion of whether political rhetoric, whether from the right or left, drove Loughner to become a mass murderer this past Saturday. I am not a Psychiatrist (nor do I play one on TV) but to this layman, Jared Loughner is nothing but a fruit cake with extra nuts.
