Re: “The Crazed Internet Rantings of Jared Loughner

Trying to decipher the disrupted thought patterns and motives of Jared Loughner is like trying to read entrails to glean information. This said, based on what on line fragments of his cyber life and current news reports I can find, it may turn out that his psychotic break was triggered by some set of events at the community college he attended-probably a failure of a course or two. That he had a run in with campus police and blamed the state supported college for his current desperate financial situation of being unemployed and unemployable.

That he was conflicted about his sexual identity. Smoked a fair amount of pot (which can in certain predisposed individuals trigger schizophrenia). Was unsuitable for military service (may have been rejected based on his possession of paraphernalia conviction) and, somewhere known but yet to be revealed by investigators, became convinced that he was being guided by the uncivil ranting of some in the media (my blind bet Glenn Beck as one of them).

The sad truth is that this unhinged individual has left a wake sadness in the lives of the innocent victims and their families. Mr. Loughner in sobering reality, will now have to face the judicial consequences of his callous actions.
