Why Do We Pussyfoot Around Killers?

By Yul

This morning, a reporter on the Today Show referred to Tucson’s most famous mass-murderer, Jared Loughner, as the “suspected killer.”

So far, Loughner has only been charged at the federal level with one count of attempted assassination of member of Congress, two counts of killing an employee of the federal government, and two counts of attempting to kill a federal employee.

By my calculations, that leaves 4 counts of first-degree murder, and 12 counts of attempted murder still on the table. Apparently, Arizona is supposed to deal with those, so why is Arizona dragging its feet?

If a dog pees on the floor while nobody else is home, but he’s the only dog in the house, his owner assumes that dog made the puddle and blames the dog.

Yet this homicidal creep walked into Safeway and unloaded a gun into 20 people while it was captured on Safeway’s surveillance video and a goodly number of eye-witnesses were standing right there — but he’s only been charged 5 times and he’s only “suspected” of committing the crimes?

I don’t get it.

What about the people who tried to get away from him but took a bullet anyway? Will they be doubted when they identify who shot them?

How about the bystanders who grabbed and disarmed Loughner? Do the police think Loughner was there to buy a quart of milk?

Maybe they believe the real shooter was outside on a grassy knoll?

We’ve all seen the mug shot of this smirking, remorseless Uncle Fester wannabe. This guy needs to be taken out of circulation permanently — the sooner the better.

In such cut-and-dried cases, pretending “justice is blind” is a sick joke that mocks the victims.

There’s no merit in spending a penny on defense lawyers. No sense in wasting a jury’s time with a lengthy trial. The proof of Loughner’s crimes is indisputable. Spare the taxpayers and smack that sick bastard TODAY with whatever Arizona’s maximum punishment is and let the payback begin.

    Did I hear that correctly??? One can buy ammo at Walmart at 7:30 AM? Only after being refused for same at a different Walmart a half hour EARLIER? What planet is Arizona on?

    ZM

    ZM, I heard some news report that sales for that particular type of ammo are through the roof in a lot of places because people are afraid it will be made illegal. They must be expecting a zombie invasion. When else would you want the ability to mow down so many bodies without reloading?

    Would that be a “suspected” zombie invasion or an “alleged” zombie invasion? These people are about to find out the hard way that bullets don’t work on zombies and it’s gonna be ugly

    OK, if they can’t kill the zombies with bullets (although they’ll have a ton of fun trying), they can pass a law making zombies without proper documentation illegal. Then everybody in Arizona will have to be buried with their death certificate, so they can rise from the dead later without hitting any red tape.

    Please by all means protect our right to bear arms, oh yeah especially Glocks with magazine that hold a dozens of rounds.

    We could not survive as a nation without those rights, could we?
