Suspect Held in Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Shooting is a Young Male Named Jared Loughner (MySpace Screen Capture)(Updated)

The suspect in the Rep. Gabrielle Giffords shootings name has been released. It is Jared Loughner.

What appears to be his MySpace page has already been yanked. Here is a screen capture of his photo album. It has a gun laid on the White House.

There is also a YouTube channel for a Jared Loughner. His last video is really bizarre, but I am unclear if this is the same Jared Loughner who is a suspect in the shooting.




Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is alive and in critical condition. Five people have been confirmed killed. Reportedly, Federal Judge John Roll is one of the dead.

Update: Here is another picture of a Jared Loughner working the Tucson Festival of Books in Arizona in March, 2010.


Update2: If this is the correct YouTube account, Jared looks like a lefty. His favorite video at his YouTube account is the US flag is torched.

Update3: ABC is reporting there was a farewell message on his MySpace.
On a Myspace page apparently maintained by Loughner, he said goodbye to friends and said, "Please don't be mad at me... I cannot rest."

Update4: He is looking more like a lefty. Gateway Pundit has this:
UPDATE: These tweets are from someone who knows left-winger Loughner:

Update5: Six dead and 13 wounded...

Looks like the guy can be described as a left anarchist if anything. That won't stop the media from blaming the TEA Party and Sarah Palin.

Already happening. I hope they have to eat their words.

Looking at the video you posted, it seems likely he's mentally ill. But the few moments of lucidity that come through the video sound a lot more like Tea Party rhetoric than ultra-lefty rhetoric. The emphasis on constitutional originalism and gold/silver backed currency could be right out of Glenn Beck, once you separate it from the crazy. That doesn't mean he was an active member of any political movement - just that he was paying attention to their rhetoric.

One of his favorite books is Communist Manifesto...
