Thoughts on the Murders in Arizona

By Caomhin

No matter what, my thoughts and my prayers go out the victims and their families that were affected by the actions of a sociopathic lunatic.  This is exactly what the murderer, Jared Loughner is, a sociopath.  He is deserving of all of our scorn and our anger equally as much as the victims, their families, and friends are deserving of our thoughts, our prayers, and our deepest, most sincere condolences.

I can not imagine the horror that these men and women are going through. Simple words that I type here cannot express how I feel for them.  We all wish we could do more to help them and certainly, I believe, we hope that, God forbid, any of us were to be in a similar situation that we could conduct ourselves in such a gracious manner.

With regards to the political posturing, how dare all of you.  How dare you conduct yourselves in such a manner.  How dare you attempt to take away the feelings directed toward Jared Loughner and attempt to re-direct them in order to advance your political goals and ambitions.

A person such as Markos Moulitsas, who took to his twitter account to attempt to blame these atrocities on people with whom he disagreed with politically without uttering a single original though or word of concern for the victims.  A person such as Sherriff Clarence Dupnik, who in my opinion is teetering on obstruction of justice, who politically opines instead of focusing on the crime, the perpetrator, and the victims.  People such as Paul Krugman, and many, many others who openly sought to immediate exploit the suffering of others for the their agenda.  Your callousness and opportunism is beyond the pale.

This heinous crime is the fault of one person, Jared Loughner.  He should the person who is being scorned by the media and by the public and yet, here we are.  We should be praying for the victims, their family and friends, we should mourn those we have lost and pray for  the best for those who are recovering.  I hope Rep. Gabrielle Giffords recovers in full and quickly.  I only wish we could have saved those who passed away.  My heart goes out to you and I pray that God will give you comfort.  I wish I could do more for you than provide words.
