The shooters facebook page looks to be against illegal immigration. He talks about literacy and how the 8th district, the Senator's district is made up of illiterate people who do not speak english....

My little cousin and my friend's son both turned 9 today. Made that even sadder to hear.

This is unbelievable.

Do you really think anyone decided to shoot a Congressman because of a computer graphic?

No, but I can see a knee jerk tendency to take it down in light of the circumstances....

not at all, but the "perception" is all people need....that she was on a "list" of Congress people targeted by the Palin machine

I can understand why Palin's PAC would act as it did, I can't understand could actually try to pin the shooting on it, however.

No, but it shows this type of rhetoric shouldn't be used. Her 2010 opponent did the same thing. Watch the interview. Everything adds up until someone decides they're going to do something horrible like this.

The shooter is probably a TEA partier. I guess if she dies in his view it would be a good thing another liberal socialist Obama-lover would be dead.

Our political discourse has not been this volatile since the 60s and the Civil Rights movement...

Violent video games don't cause school shootings but they get blamed for them when they happen

That has not been confirmed, but news is speaking of another person in custody.

As a citizen of Arizona, this is very, very disturbing. I'm interested to find out motive. I hope the congresswoman pulls through. Very sad.

Exactly. I spent a good amount of time removing anything that might refer to planes and skyscrapers from marketing materials at work after 9/11. None of it had anything to do with 9/11, but we took it down anyway.

How about we wait for confirmation, ignorance of the details simply put, make us look ignorant. Let's wait and see.....it is a strong possibility, but again let's wait and see.

Fox News is going through the suspects You Tube videos as we speak, they are going to show some of them once they have gone through them. A motive is coming to light from comments on his Face book against illiteracy, non-english speakers. He talks about the Constitution not being followed, etc.

Agreed. And if that is the case, that still doesn't mean the entire Tea Party movement is made up people who would do this sort of thing, so let's not go there either, everyone.

To blame Palin is slippry slope since its almost like blaming manson for Columbine. But there is a message here that the retoric should be taken down a notch and be moreabout ideas. Mansn and violent video games areade for entertainment purposes and ,unless menaly unstable, are taken as entertainment. Politics s a place to debate ideas and there is really no place for having cross hairs or violent retoric.

That was the quote, probably trying to confirm everything.

Well not to draw rotten tomatoes, but there are people out there who fill their head with NOTHING but the suggestions of these images and rhetoric, and things like this can occur.

You can't blame Palin for this. I can't stand the woman, but I would never believe she would ever advocate an act like this. That was never the intention of that image on her site.
