Conflicting reports.  She may still be alive, but Reuters says otherwise.  They have the gunman and AZ has the death penalty.  That state has been so explosive.  I hope she makes it.  Sharp lady.

I hope she makes it too, I *despise* senseless things like this, it's like, you didn't make your cause stronger, you hurt/murdered so many people, and for what? You accomplished, literally, the opposite of what you intended because now that person will be a martyr.

I think our political culture is too toxic right now, I understand people are angry, but this never solve anything.

Thanks for supportive words and understanding.   I haven't checked the news so don't know the status.  It is absolutely senseless, Ella, how true.  Her aide was shot as well and many others died.  At some point all you can do is pray.

Just ghastly.  RIP bye indeed.  CNN was impossible to watch without crying as the bodies were being moved.  God#ammit!  What a shame.

This country is built on some of the most open communication with our reps as possible in this world.  Dear God, I hope this doesn't create more security and fear.  Democracy keeps taking hit after hit after hit.

^^^ Yes MK those are the last news reports i read too! Initially, I think the media assumed she was dead (how many people actually live through getting shot in the head at point blank range?) as they reported her as deceased. However, she did come through surgery okay and she has been responding to commands the last I read!

She seems to be hanging on, thank God.  But, so many others have died.  I truly believe now that the FBI is involved because a federal judge was involved, this man may get the chair.

I apologize for the title of this thread.  It was reported everywhere that the woman had died.  If it could be changed that would be helpful; if someone can tell me how.  Thank you.

It is fine Yooper. I understand that there was alot of confusion at first as I watched it live on the news here in the initial hours after the shooting.

I have also changed the title for you.

Why wan't this crazy in a loony bin? If this monster had been in a facility, he never would have gotten that gun to kill those people. Killing a Congress Critter can get you the chair.

Mousie!!!   thankyou  I really appreciate that.  The last thing I want is to send out wrong information and also bad karma.   flower

Killing a federal judge WILL get you the chair, or so I'm told.

Yeah, even TRYING to kill an FBI agent can get you the death penalty.

We're tough, we Americans.  Not that anyone else isn't, but the USA  seems to bear this wrong appearance of wimpiness and acceptance of everthing.  And it's a valid point.  We give until it hurts beyond our control, but when it comes down to it, we know how to say.. NO.

Check out the Declaration of Independence if in doubt.  That doesn't mean the UK, it means ANYONE who attacks us.  We believe.
