The media and law enforcement don’t seem to care about the truth, only sensational headlines.
So far we have:
TheGreatPiniter’s Channel
Starhitshnaz’s Channel

This story is going from tragic to weird. Go to this You Tube page. It appears to be Representative Gifford’s genuine You Tube Channel page, as a general You Tube search for Channels with “gifford” turns up this page. On the bottom left are the channels she is subscribed to. The left most Channel appears to be that of the shooter when you click through.
Here’s the screen grab of Congresswoman Gifford’s page (the page was long, it’s in two sections):

Here’s the bottom of the page (it was too long to grab in a single shot). The left most subscription “Classitup10” appears to be a page with the name “Jared Lee Loughner” (Link here):

H/T to my Blogtalkradio friend, Bigfoot! “According to the Legal Insurrection link, in
his safe Loughner had a letter from Rep. Giffords
from 2007.  That was before anyone outside of
Alaska (myself included) heard of Sarah Palin, and
before the Tea Party movement existed.”

Five Criminal Charges Filed Against Jared Lee Loughner

Charges have been filed against Jared Lee Loughner in federal court in Arizona:

Ct. 1: 18:351C.F–Congressional, Attempt To Kill;
Ct. 2: 18:1114 and 1111–Murder First Degree;
Ct. 3: 18:1114 and 1111–Murder First Degree;
Ct. 4: 18:1114 and 1113–Attempted Murder;
Ct. 5: 18:1114 and 1113–Attempted Murder

All of the charges related to distinctly federal aspects of the murders of Congresswoman Giffords and her staff, and federal Judge Roll, all of whom were performing their official duties at the time.  (See below as to why Judge Roll was at the event).  This federal complaint does not address the others killed, so we can expect state charges as well.

Here are some interesting aspects of the Affidavit which accompanied the Complaint.

Judge Roll attended the event in order to speak with Congresswoman Giffords (emphasis mine):

“On January 9,2011, your affiant spoke with U.S. Marshal David Gonzales, who stated that the Honorable John M. Roll, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, had worked with Congresswoman Giffords within the last several months to resolve issues related to the volume of cases filed in the District of Arizona. Judge Roll was notified about Congresswoman Giffords’ event telephonically on or about January 7, 2011. Having spoken to Pia Carusone, the Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Giffords in Washington D.C., U.S. Marshal Gonzales reports that Ron Barber, a staff person for Congresswoman Giffords who was present at the event, stated that Judge Roll attended the event and sought to speak to Congresswoman Giffords, and spoke with Mr. Barber about issues related to the volume of federal cases in the District of Arizona; Judge Roll expressed his appreciation to Mr. Barber for the help and support that Congresswoman Giffords had given. Your affiant reviewed a digital surveillance video depicting the events at the Safeway; in the video, Judge Roll is seen speaking for several minutes with Mr. Barber.”

A letter was found at Loughner’s home, marked “I planned ahead” and “my assassination” (emphasis mine):

“On January 8, 2011, a search warrant was executed at 7741 N. Soledad Avenue in Tucson, Arizona, where LOUGHNER resides. Some of the evidence seized from that location included a letter in a safe, addressed to “Mr. Jared Loughney” at 7741 N. Soledad Avenue, from Congresswoman Giffords, on Congressional stationary, dated August 30, 2007, thanking him for attending a “Congress on your Corner” event at the Foothills Mall in Tucson. Also recovered in the safe was an envelope with handwriting on the envelope stating “I planned ahead,” and “My assassination” and the name “Giffords,” along with what appears to be LOUGHNER’s signature.”

Here is the Complaint and accompanying affidavit:

    The subscription doesn’t seem so strange if it is true that the Daily Kos contributor …Blue boy, I think it was, is actually Mr. Loughner. In his last post there, he details how he was a strong supporter of Mrs. Giffords and had raised thousands of dollars for her campaigns.
