19 Shot, 6 Dead in Arizona

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, shooting victim

Gabrielle Giffords (Democrat - Arizona)

The Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, a strong supporter of Israel, was the target of a Shabbos afternoon attack a few hours ago that has resulted in six deaths so far.  The 22-year-old murderer is Jared Loughner, and you can watch his YouTube channel to convince yourself that he’s been deranged for some time and should have been on meds.  (His MySpace pages have already been taken down since the murders.)  The attack took place at a supermarket that was hosting a public political meeting.  Don’t know much more yet, except that Giffords, who was shot in the head at point-blank range, has undergone neurosurgery and is expected to live, and that the dead include a Federal Judge and a young child.
