As things stand now (5:00 PM Eastern), it looks like 6 dead, including a Federal judge and a 9-year-old girl, and another 12 -- including Giffords -- wounded.
CNN is reporting a 22-year-old is in custody for the shooting.
According to CNN:
She won her third term in a closely contested race against a Tea Party-sponsored candidate and was one of three Democratic legislators who reported vandalism at
their offices following the March vote on health care reform.
The jackwad in custody will probably be some teabagger gun nut who’s pissed because some mere woman beat a good teabaggin male.
This fruit will probably rejoice at the judge's death, cause the teabag sovereign citizen crowd doesn't like judges, especially Federal judges, who say Hispanics and Muslims in this country have the same rights as the white, God-fearin', brown-person-hatin', KKK-robe-wearin', hooker-humpin', sister-marryin', rifle-rack-in-the-pickmup cracker redneck morons.
Guess what, you teabag MO-rons. This is one of YOUR people who did this. You own this. This is what you are promoting as acceptable discourse. This is what Beck and Malkin and Coulter and Limbaugh all stand for. This is what Boner and Lepage and Bachmann and all the rest of the teabaggers support. You demand action, violent action. You say "the tree of liberty must be watered with blood."
You can't turn around now and say "well, I was only kidding."
Teabaggers are murderers. They murder children.
THEY MURDER NINE-YEAR-OLD LITTLE GIRLS.
Bet you're proud of yourselves now, right, @ssholes?
