View Full Version : Alleged Shooter in Gabrielle Giffords Attack, Described as "Left-Wing Pothead"

A classmate of the man accused of shooting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords this morning describes him as "left wing" and a "pot head" in a series of posts on Twitter this afternoon.

Caitie Parker did not immediately respond to our request for an interview, but her "tweets" in the hours after the shooting paint a picture of Jared Loughner as a substance-abusing loner who had met Giffords before the shooting. She says, Loughner described the congresswoman as "stupid and unintelligent."

We've confirmed that Parker and Loughner went to school together at Mountain View High School in Tucson and that both attended Pima Community College, so her claims of knowing Loughner seem to be legit.

Parker "tweets" that she and Loughner were in the band together and were friends until 2007 when he became "reclusive" after getting alcohol poisoning and dropping out of college.

She describes him as "quite liberal" and as a "political radical."

Tucson is the moonbat capitol of Arizona.

When I first heard of this, and they said "Tucson", I said "moonbat".

Of course this will be all ignored. After all, leftists are incapable of murder. Just ask the DUmp. :rolleyes:

I'm always reading on conservative sites that the left would lose any civil war, because the right has all the guns. So which is it? :o

So, what you're saying is that in the history of the world, not one leftist is responsible for any death? So I take it to you Lee Harvey Oswald was a right wing nut, huh? Go back to the rock you've been under and leave these kinds of discussions to the adults.

According to the left, the only person at Dealey Plaza who didn't take a shot at Kennedy was Oswald.

No, I was not saying that, and you can shove your condescending remark right up what is undoubtedly your most attractive feature.

Nah, if you ask my wife, I don't have much of a butt. But thanks for the compliment.

Many man don't, they're just, like, FLAT in back. What's up with that? (Possible thread highjack).

It's not just men. Females of certain Northern European genetic lines aren't exactly famous for their glute development, either.

Sadly.

We could ask Poli to take a look. His head is at butt-level so he's an expert on the subject. :D

to get back on track, everything started going wrong for this kid after he had Alcohol poisoning. One has to ask why the hell the parents didn't get help for him.

The little I've heard indicates the parents weren't exactly Ward and June Cleaver.

I believe it. If they can allow their kid to go on without getting help, it doesn't surprise me.
