Yet the early coverage and commentary of the Tucson massacre suppressed this evidence. The coverage and commentary shifted to an entirely different explanation: Loughner unleashed his rampage because he was incited by the violent rhetoric of the Tea Party, the anti-immigrant movement and Sarah Palin.

Funny how they can come to that conclusion without one shred of evidence. And yet, after Nadal shot up Ft. Hood, we were all told not to jump to conclusions. Just goes to show you their mindset.

And sometimes people do acts of violence because they just have problems. We can say they did it because of this or that belief, but at the end of the day they had issues that go way beyond their beliefs.
I see little difference in Nadal or Cho or Dylan Klebold or this guy. All in all the aftermath of this will be that politicians use it to further ward themselves away from the public and take away rights for safety.
