Fox News reporting that Giffords was shot in the head while speaking in Tucson. Early reports suggest as many as 12 others were shot. No word on her condition.

NPR radio reporting that Giffords has died. Fox News now reporting that "multiple deaths" have occurred.

I can't help but wonder which subversive grassroots movement (Tea Party of 9/11 Truth) will get blamed for this.

I hate being so goddamned cynical.

We spoke to an eyewitness, Steven Rayle, who was on the scene at the time of the shooting and helped to hold the suspect down while waiting for police. Here's what he said:

The event was very informal: Gifford had set up a table outside the Safeway and about 20-30 people were gathered to talk to her. The gunman, who may have come from inside the Safeway, walked up and shot Gifford in the head first. According to Rayle, who is a former ER doctor, Gifford was able to move her hands after being shot.

After shooting Gifford, the gunman opened fire indiscriminately for a few seconds, firing 20-30 rounds and hitting a number of people, including a kid no older than 10 years old. Rayle hid behind a concrete pole and pretended to be dead. When the gunman apparently ran out of ammunition he attempted to flee, but a member of Gifford's staff tackled him. Rayle helped hold the gunman down while waiting for the sheriff to arrive, about 15-to-20 minutes later. The EMS came about 30 minutes later. Rayle said he was "stunned" by how long it took medical help to arrive.

The gunman was young, mid-to-late 20s, white, clean-shaven with short hair and wearing dark clothing and said nothing during the shooting or while being held down, although he struggled at first. He didn't look like a businessman, but more of a "fringe character," Rayle said.

Gabrielle Giffords dies after being shot

January 8, 2011

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- A gunman shot and killed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

Giffords was shot outside one of her signature "Congress at your corner" events outside a Safeway in Tucson, the district she represented, when a gunman approached and shot her in the head, according to NPR. He killed six other people before he was tackled.

Giffords was elected to Congress in the Democratic sweep in 2006. The first Jewish woman elected to Congress from the state, she made her Jewish identity part of her campaign.

“If you want something done, your best bet is to ask a Jewish woman to do it,” said Giffords, a former state senator, said at the time. “Jewish women — by our tradition and by the way we were raised — have an ability to cut through all the reasons why something should, shouldn’t or can’t be done and pull people together to be successful.”

Giffords fought a hard election this year, against the national anti-incumbent, anti-Democratic mood. She tacked to the right of her party on immigration, saying border security was of primary consideration. The election was called in her favor weeks after the vote.

Killing 2 birds with one stone, maybe? Getting rid of a congresswoman who fought for tough border security while simultaneously vilifying guns. Who REALLY shot her?

May she rest in peace.

The report said the suspect tried to run away but was tackled by a bystander and was in police custody.

Richard Kastigar, a supervisor with the sheriff’s department, identified the gunman as a 22-year-old “with limited law enforcement experience.”

But apparently enough experience to follow an order, perhaps? Or, if he wasn't following orders, maybe there is something about the shooter's identity they are trying to hide? After all, at 22 years old, the shooter isn't a minor, so why hide his identity?

This guy?

SOURCE
Calls for a new currency? Likes burning American flag? Shot a jewish (nothing racial intended) Congresswoman. It surely doesn't look like S. Palin supporter.
Was caught at the scene? MK 2.0. Typical Tavistock.
Plot thickens...

just. my .02

Time to mind the people isn't divided to Democrats and Republicans, they're just good or bad.
