This Jared Kid (Part Three...)

You know, the more I learn about this m@*&!rf%$k#r...

The more I want to see him beaten to a pulp.

Yeah, I do. I'm looking forward to seeing him go to prison. His fellow inmates are liable to kick his ass for shooting that little girl, and the guards are liable to kick his ass for shooting that judge. Fine with me.

Anyone else read this $#!+ yet?

F%@k this kid.

Like I've said, I've stood on the edge of the same cliff he has and looked down. Should you come to that point, you are supposed to back away, turn around, keep going, and find some way to make peace with the universe. I still have a bad day now and then, but deep down, I know I'm going to get through it -- I have many times before, and I don't consider myself a particularly strong person. Hell, I just went through a bad weekend, and I'm doing all right now, all things considered -- I'm just venting some more, it doesn't amount to anything.

But if I could ask Loughner just one question, it would be this: Why on earth would you want to shoot a little girl?

Although I can understand the anger towards the shooter, I have a few different perspectives to consider.

#1. People are not born with hate & prejudice in their hearts. Somewhere along the way he "learned" to have these perspectives.

#2. The Gandhi Factor & non violence.
Qouting MLK here:

For through violence you may murder a murderer but you can't murder murder. Through violence you may murder a liar but you can't establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can't murder hate. Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that.

#3. I think there are pieces of the puzzle, that culminated in Loughner's life winding up on this path. Very hard to forgive him for what he did, yet I consider him to be sick, ill, in need of help.

More thoughts...

I'm just throwing this out there for consideration.
This Jared kid was smoking "Synergy", synthetic marijuana.
Google it & it says it can be anywhere from 3, 5, 10, 15 to 100 times stronger than the THC found in regular pot".
It is synthetic, sold as an herbal incense, not meant to be smoked & here is a long article about someone who did.
It causes all kinds of weird side effects, has a whole lot of different chemicals in it & unlike natural pot,causes side effects- including loss of vision, hallucination, it is addictive & one can overdose on it.


Currently, it is perfectly legal in Arizona, but has been banned in several states. It is not currently detectable in labwork like in regular drug screening.

People who knew him & were round him said he went through some major changes in the last few years. Is this chemical a piece of the puzzle?

Of course he would have been highly hormonal, and the teen years can be tumultuous.
Not fitting in to any peer group in H.S. & even college can be emotionally devastating.

I think there are many pieces of the puzzle- perhaps a combo of being a social misfit, tweaking his brains w "Synergy" (legal yet lethal ?), and the home life.

His parents left their home in the dark with their faces fully covered. That face hiding thing really bothers me. They did not do the crime...
what did they do that makes them feel they had to hide their faces?

Something's not right on the homefront there.

I don't know the whole picture-- did his parents sit around w Fox news blaring all day?
Or have Rush L's hate filled venom permeating the airwaves? It's not illegal to listen to Fox & hate radio, but it could influence a vulnerable young man's mind- especially if he is mentally unstable in general.

If he was a troubled young man, why did he have a gun? His parents were OK with it?

At some point the Synergy will detox out of his body... will he then come back to being "of sound mind"? (as opposed to be out of him mind to do the shooting crime)

I don't know what all took him over the edge--
maybe he has other mental health issues that did lead him to insanity, or maybe the synthetic chemicals alone or in combination played a role.

I suspect he will get the death penalty - they will seek to make an example out of him for anyone else thinking of shooting a congressperson & or Federal Judge (although he did not know he was shooting a Federal Judge?).

If not, he will remain a prisoner the rest of his life in solitary confinement either in a mental institution or prison.
Essentially, his life is over.

Who knows, he may have intended on a murder suicide, but did not get to finish his plan?

So many lives ruined, including his own.

We need to find compassion for his lost soul, even though he embraced hate & manifested it in a most horrific way.

He became a victim of his own hate as well.

Dude, get some therapy.

Jim, I really think you're way off here. I realize sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between a mean dog and a rabid one without the medical report but this kid seems to have all the markings of a rabid dog. Really, I think it's premature to blame anyone for something that the rabies did. And if you're identifying with the symptoms, then really maybe therapy isn't a bad idea.

Everyone: I agree, I may have this young man figured all wrong. Frankly, I'm hoping I am. But try to understand one thing: none of you were involved in any part of my life when I was 22. I'm 40 now. I have a hard time trying to explain this to people, and looking back on those days, I'm not sure I'm even remembering it correctly, but one thing that looks pretty clear to me is that I wasn't all there at the time. This wasn't a "trying twenties" thing -- I just plain wasn't all there, I just happened to be in my twenties. I hated my life and my position in it, I went through chronic bouts of depression, I seriously considered suicide, I even had a short list of people I wanted murdered, preferably by my own hand. And like Jared Loughner, I had a fantasy world of my own that I desperately wanted to live in. Ultimately, I realized that it would never happen -- and fortunately, I found enough effective ways to deal with that where I've gotten to the point where I no longer hate my life or my position in it, my current bouts with depression last a few days at most, I no longer think about suicide, and best of all, I no longer want to kill anyone.

I'm not suggesting I don't need therapy -- obviously I do, though the way my life is structured around work these days, I don't really have time for the professional variety, so me venting my spleen in blogtopia will have to suffice for a while longer. What I will say is, if you had known me when I was 22, you most likely would have said "Fuck this kid," too...
