Watching this report on TV now. A congressional aide was also injured and 2 Capitol police were killed. The shooter is in hospital but alive at last report.

Thanks for the update susie. But the Capitol police were not killed according to your link, they were non-life threatening wounded. Where did you see a link that said they were killed?

debatable i think 

Records show that Loughner was registered as an Independent and voted in 2006 and 2008, but not in 2010.[39][40]

Loughner's high-school friend Zach Osler said, "He did not watch TV; he disliked the news; he didn't listen to political radio; he didn't take sides; he wasn't on the Left; he wasn't on the Right."[18] A former classmate, Caitie Parker, who attended high school and college with Loughner, described his political views prior to 2007, prior to his personality transformation, as "left wing, quite liberal,"[41] "radical."[42] The tone of Loughner's online writings and videos from immediately before the attack were described by The Guardian as "almost exclusively conservative and anti-government, with echoes of the populist campaigning of the Tea Party movement".[43]

I think he's just plain old crazy.

.ZZ.

Just saw an interview with Democrat  Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe. He went straight to "There are too many guns on the street"

Why must they politicize at a time like this?

I heard it on TV, not a link. Corrected it in another post. Had just got up and put the news on.

Left wing twitterverse is celebrating and cheering.  Link on Drudge

Identified as Jon T. Hodgkinson and he has a profile picture on his Facebook page of Bernie Sanders.  'nuff said. 

Pretty sure it is him as they are saying he was an owner of a home inspection business and the Facebook page confirms that or it could be a newly created page.

Not an expert on Facebook so don't  know but they are saying on the radio that he was a big fan of Bernie's, hardcore progressive as per interviews with his friends.   66 years old and never showed signs of violence. (No links because all on the radio, sorry.)

Oh sorry, in the Heavy.com link provided earlier it quotes the shooter's FB page  " On March 22 he wrote, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”

Sorry, the rest of us don't speak Yammie. Try English, next time, then we won't need an interpreter.

I'm not saying this is about Trump. I'm saying that the tolerance of violent 'artistic expression' (if that's what it's called) in our society could lead to disturbed individuals thinking shooting those they disagree with politically to be a viable option.  

I disagree.  That's too slippery a slope to start down.  What's next?  TV shows and movies where people are killed?  Video games?  Books?  Crazy people are crazy regardless.
