Jared Loughner: "I Planned Ahead"

Jared Loughner left a series of bizarre notes in a safe in his home prior to Saturday's shooting in Tucson.
Authorities investigating Saturday's shooting rampage in Tucson found some bizarre notes in the home of Jared Loughner, the man accused of killing six people and injuring several others, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

According to multiple reports, investigators searched Loughner's home and found a safe containing at least three strange notes.

On one of the notes, Loughner apparently scrawled "Giffords." On another, he wrote "I planned ahead." On the third, Loughner wrote "my assassination."

In addition to the eerie collection of notes written by Loughner, investigators also found a note written by Giffords to Loughner. That note reportedly thanked Loughner for attending a campaign event Giffords held.

Giffords, meanwhile, remains heavily sedated and in critical condition after she was shot "through the brain," University Medical Center director Pete Rhee says.

The main concern, he says, is swelling of the brain, but doctors have removed a large portion of the left side of her skull to alleviate any pressure that may build. Doctors say she's being awakened periodically and is responding to commands.

A federal complaint already has been filed against Loughner for the shooting.

The federal complaint, filed yesterday by Arizona U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke, includes two counts of murder of a federal official for the murders of Federal Judge John Roll and Giffords' staffer Gabriel Zimmerman. In addition, the complaint includes three counts of attempted murder of a federal official for the assaults on Giffords and others. 

Loughner's scheduled to be in court in Phoenix at 2 p.m. today. Check back to Valley Fever for updates.

Marivi:Well said. From what I read, it appears that this numbnuts will face the needle. I wonder when the state charges will be coming down and whether or not we will seek the death penalty.

The mere fact that this sick asshole could kill a 9 year old without any remorse (he was smirking in his mugshot. I'd like to wipe the smirk off of his face) is what makes me want this asshole executed by any means necessary. They oughta up the charges to murder I because he said he planned ahead.

If a gun carrying citizen had been there, this shooter could have been stopped before he had time to get out the 2nd bullet, and we wouldn't have to waste our tax dollars figuring out what to do with him. Think on that all of you who are pro gun-control.

There is no way to be sure of that - if multiple people has started firing back at the shooter, perhaps he would be dead, but perhaps there would also have been more victims in the crowd.

For all of his hatred, all of his confusion, all of the vitriol of our world. For all of his effort. And for all of his success in Tucson, Mr. Loughner has proved nothing... nothing at all... except that he can ably fire a 9mm. with grotesque accuracy.All of those six deaths and the ones left to heal are his twisted legacy, a statement to a world that he does not understand, because it is not to be understood. He hated and so he killed; the State now hates and so it will kill.And nothing has changed in 6,000 years.

This guy is mentally unstable. You should have some respect for his family. What happened was a tragedy. This guy is no more evil a tree who's branch snapped and killed everyone. Sure we might have to cut down th tree but we dont call it evil

Your response is both rediculous and foolish. If this person was mentally competent to write on his myspace account asking friends to not be angry at what he was about to do, then he obviously knows right from wrong. Since he obviously knew what he was doing was wrong, then yes...his actions were evil.

It shouldn't take 10 yrs on death row to kill this idiot.. justice should be fast and public.
