To be clear, Jared Loughner was a product of the Obama-Ayers "Small Schools Program" in which communist terrorist provided a special curriculum for one-on-one teacher-student education.
Loughner killed Judge John Roll and nearly killed Representative Gabrielle Giffords, both of whom had stood up to Barack Obama on the border invasion issue and were preparing to assert State Sovereignty to defend against said invasion.
It appears that, since surviving the murder attempt, Giffords is no longer standing up to The Party. Judge Roll remains dead. The "message" has been delivered, in Chicago gangster style, to those who dared resist the Chicago thugs in power.
