If this s**t was political motivated then I think I smell a mastermind. That state's political climate is bad and what better way to promote a political agenda by shooting a congresswoman (white one at that?) So my deal is "WHY"? Why was she targeted? Why do a feel like when they find out the shooters race it might become an issue of concern?

The Arizona Republic

Most of the victims from Saturday's mass shooting in Tucson have not been identified but the dead include, an aide to Giffords, a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl. Two members of Rep. Gabrielle Gifford's staff also were wounded in the attack.

The Giffords aide was identified as Gabe Zimmerman, her community outreach director; the 30-year-old was engaged to be married.

U.S. District Judge John Roll, the chief judge for the District of Arizona, was k!lled while apparently attending a public appearance by Giffords outside a Safeway store north of Tucson, U.S. Marshall David Gonzales confirmed to the a.ssociated Press.

Also k!lled was 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green of Tucson.

A neighbor was going to the Giffords event and invited Christina along because she thought she would enjoy it, said her uncle, Greg Segalini.

Christina had just been elected to the student council at her school. The event, held outside a Safeway supermarket north of Tucson, was an opportunity for constituents to meet Giffords and talk about any concerns they had related to the federal government.

"The next thing you know this happened. How do you prepare for something like this. My little niece got k!lled-took one on the chest and she is dead," Segalini said outside the girl's house.

Christina was involved in many activities, from ballet to baseball, Segalini said.

"She was real special and real sweet," Segalini said.

Gifford's deputy director Ron Barber also was injured in the shooting but was OK, said C.J. Karamargin, Giffords' communications director. He was not at the event.

Another staffer, Pam Simon, was also hit, Karamargin said, but she will also be alright.

Roll started his legal career as a bailiff in the Pima County Superior Court. He served an a.ssistant city attorney in Tucson and worked as a criminal prosecutor in Pima County before joining the U.S. Attorney's office in 1980, where he specialized in prosecuting drug cases.

He was appointed to the Arizona Appeals Court in 1987 and served until he was named to the federal bench by President George H. W. Bush in 1991.

He began serving as presiding judge in 2006.

A native of Pennsylvania, he graduated from the University of Arizona in 1969 and received his law degree from the University of Virginia in 1972.

it's amazing this woman is apparently going to survive this... It was a point blank shot right to her head and the bullet went through her brain... WOW :wow: Here's just hoping there's no permanent brain damage and that she recovers fully.

I just hope this a**hole gets what's coming to'em...

Crazy.

When I read the thread title, I thought that she had a gun and was the one shooting at the event, like a demonstration or something Sarah Palin might do. Must've overlooked that she was a democrat.

Anyway, was she for or against the law that basically makes it ok to stereotype mexicans in Az? Do y'all think she was against it and the crazies that were for it, went too far?

What really happened?

@ the 9 year old being k!lled because of this nonsense. Not that anyone dying like that has less impact but thats the kind of stuff that infuriates me on another level. If i had a child and that happened to them i would probably literally go insane. I wouldn't be able to handle it.

I gotta agree, he is definitely not the equivalent of what's on Fox. I don't really watch any of these guys religiously though. When I do catch Olbermann, I've never heard him say anything all that unreasonable.
