Cops Find Photos Of AZ Shooter Posing With Gun While Wearing Red G-String

Investigators today said that they’ve received a bizarre series of photos of mass murderer Jared Lee Loughner. The photos show Loughner wearing a red g-string with a Glock pistol next to his naked buttocks.

The photos were turned over to the police by Walgreens, where Mr. Loughner had taken the 35-mm film to be developed on Jan. 7, the day before the shooting. In some of the photos he is holding the gun near his crotch, and in others, presumably shot in a mirror, he is holding the gun next to his buttocks, the police said. It was not yet clear when the photos were taken. According to a detailed timeline released by the Pima County Sherriff’s Department on Friday, Mr. Loughner posted one of the photos and a bulletin saying, “Goodbye friends,” on MySpace early Saturday morning.

Joe. My. God.

What do we know about the Arizona shooter?

There is not a lot of information about the man arrested for shooting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), killing S.S. District Judge John Roll, a 9-year-old child and injuring at least 18 people. What we know now. Feel free to add links to new information in the comments.

CBS:

Police said the suspect, Jared Loughner, 22, has had one minor run-in with the law. Little information is known immediately about Laughner – such as his background or a possible motive in the attack.

Police said a pistol with an extended magazine was used.

A law enforcement source told CBS News that a man apparently stood up in the crowd during the town hall meeting, shouted something and then opened fire. Someone – possibly police or security – then shot at the gunman.

The gunman has been apprehended but it is unknown if he was wounded.

Around the Twittersphere, there is talk that this is Loughner’s YouTube page, but it has not been confirmed. Let’s just say this person is what we feared – a winger with serious issues.

UPDATE: CNN has compiled a sampling of the Arizona shooting suspect’s social-media postings:

Good-bye friends.

Dear friends,…..Please don’t be mad at me. The literacy rate is below 5%. I haven’t talked to one person who is literate.

Statement from John McCain:

U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) made the following statement regarding the horrifying attack at an event for U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) in Tucson, Arizona:

“I am horrified by the violent attack on Representative Gabrielle Giffords and many other innocent people by a wicked person who has no sense of justice or compassion. I pray for Gabby and the other victims, and for the repose of the souls of the dead and comfort for their families. I beg our loving Creator to spare the lives of those who are still alive, heal them in body and spirit, and return them to their loved ones.

“Whoever did this; whatever their reason, they are a disgrace to Arizona, this country and the human race, and they deserve and will receive the contempt of all decent people and the strongest punishment of the law.”

Love this development, feeling guilty, much, you wingers? From Marc Ambinder:

Wingnuts already at work planting fake FB pages portraying shooter as leftist. http://on.fb.me/fUiaCU

And how about this:

Tea party activists fear backlash in wake of shooting of Rep. Giffords

Tea party activists condemned today’s shooting and said they are concerned that the act will be blamed on their movement.

“A lot of people have bets on how long it will take before they blame this on the tea party and that’s absolutely ridiculous,” Debbie Dooley, a national coordinator for Tea Party Patriots, told Congress.org.

…”This heinous act will change the interaction between elected officials and their constituents,” the group’s Facebook wall said. “People also pray for the safety of congressmen, senators, President Obama and other elected officials in the aftermath of this shooting.”

Just an observation — one has to ask why all the site scrubbing (Palin, Free Republic) if the right wing thinks the shooter isn’t one of “their own?” Palin and Co. need to own the rhetoric and leave it up for all to see.

Watch: YouTube Videos From Tuscon Shooter Jared Loughner

Jared   Gun
We're learning more about the alleged 22-year-old gunman who shot earlier today several people at a public event in Tuscon hosted by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, severely injuring her and several others and taking the lives of at least two others. Jared Lee Loughner had both a Myspace page and a YouTube channel that might help bring some insight into the mind of the man.

About 15-20 shots were reported to have been fired at the Safeway where the event was taking place. A 9 mm Glock was recovered at the scene.

We know that Loughner was once a volunteer for the Tucson Festival of Books.

Loughner's Myspace page has since been taken down but not before information and screen grabs of his page were captured. Two of those photos are above. His page listed his interests as "reading, and I studied grammar. Conscience dreams were a great study in college."

Loughner Five videos were posted on Loughner's YouTube channel (username: Classitup10) in November and December of 2010. The videos are  bizarre and nonsensical. In the videos, which are simply text, graphics and music, Loughner talks about dreaming, "currency government," religion, mind control and other things, not much of which makes much sense.  He also claims this in one of the videos: "I define terrorist."

Watch them for yourself, AFTER THE JUMP.
