Re: “The Crazed Internet Rantings of Jared Loughner

JPX. Unfortunately, you used this tragedy to spew your hatred for "the right wing". You have no idea about the facts regarding illegal aliens do you? Note that more than one third of the federal prison is comprised of illegal aliens--and often due to violent crimes that are perpetuated against your fellow American citizens. So please get off your high horse especially since you don't even know how to saddle one. In general, illegal immigration must end. I personally decided to get a carrying permit and attend school after 5 illegal alien men came to one of my rental properties and sat down on my front porch without any intentions of leaving until I got my Jersey up and told them to go or I would call the authorities. I am a women. I was by myself. It was perhaps one of the scariest moments. But that moment also reminded me that our elected officials (both parties) have failed us. Our forefathers were brilliant men. I am so glad we have the second amendment right to protect myself. If we lose this one, we will lose the first amendment, too. I applaud Governor Brewer! She is finally enforcing the law. Unlike the ones on capitol hill. But we should really reserve this conversation for a post that focuses on the topic of illegal immigration.

Maggiemay (love that song by the way), I recall when Geraldo Rivera became famous for his expose on the mistreatment of people at the Willowbrook mental hospital. I believe this was about the same time that patients were released and wound up on the streets of NY. Sadly, one of my relatives had Schizophrenia. He was a good looking and vibrant young man--and was, by all accounts, "fine", up until his early 20s. It was as if a switch was turned in the opposite direction in his mind. He was in and out of Greystone. As a child, I recall he was on a lot of medication. He would say odd things and wouldn't quite remember our names. Smoked like a chimney. If he went off his meds, he became violent and was readmitted. Family watched over him as best as possible back in the day. He passed away nearly 20 years ago of a heart attack. May he rest in peace.

Mesaguy. I find it ironic that you target Palin. (you simply gave yourself away as biased and brain washed quoting the same verbal diarhea a.k.a media spin.) Mesaguy, have you heard the lyrics in music over the last decade, particularly urban music that advocates murdering police, beating women, and the like? But I suppose that is okay in your book as long as lies. hatred, and darkness come from left of center talking heads and elite types. But even with low life lyrics and such, there is something called a dial that you can turn to another station--or hit the off button. You can turn a page in a book or click off an ad or posting you don't like or agree with. That's what sane folks do. But this guy was not in his right mind. One key thing you neglect to point out is that he had no faith. Look at his comment about God. No faith. No hope. And a troubled mind. Terrible combination. Sad how this man was showing signs of a mental sickness--but where was everyone? If he had a compound fracture and his bone was sticking out of his arm, someone would get him help or give him help. Yet no one wants to help someone whose brain is literally broken. (same can be said for spirit and soul). Too many stigmas are attached to mental illness and addictions. These are diseases that when left unchecked result in tragic outcomes. And innocent people get caught in the middle along with loved ones. My heart goes out to all of them tonight. We must pay attention. Be aware of the signs/symptoms of mental illness and depression. Be engaged. Knowledge is power to help prevent the next tragedy.
