Jared Lee Loughner has been identified as the suspect in the shooting of Rep. Gabrille Giffords, and the name has already sent the Web community rushing to MySpace, Facebook and YouTube. Supposedly, his MySpace page is already down, though some people who captured it beforehand say there was a farewell note. The man in custody is accused of shooting 18 people and killing six, including a child and John M. Roll, a judge for the United States District Court who had received death threats over the years for his decisions on illegal immigrants, which were seen as too lenient.
A YouTube page for Jared Lee Loughner from Tucson links to a creepy world of text-only videos that offers his "final thoughts" and lays out a creepy manifesto of government mind control through currency and grammar. In one Tea Party-worthy outburst, he blasts Americans for not reading the Constitution, but in the next he says the government is trying to control your "grammar structure." (Note to you, whether you're a killer or not, the phrase "grammar structure" is a needless variant and "grammar" alone would do.) The guy seems to have found some connection between human syntax and mind control that he wanted to share with the world.
He says one of his favorite activities is "conscience dreaming." He also blasts people in District 8 (Giffords' district) for their illiteracy.
I have no way of knowing whether this person is really responsible for multiple murders, but if he is, this is America's first glimpse of him:
I think it's important for people to know if this is the person, because if he is and he's crazy, then the blaming of the Tea Party should cease immediately. There are too many real things to blame them for.
