Giffords still in critical care, but making progress

01/16/2011 15:53

NEW YORK — Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, wounded in a shooting attack just over a week ago, continues to be in critical care, but is making progress after a bullet went into her skull, through her brain and back out of her skull.

On Saturday, doctors at the University Medical Center in Tucson removed Giffords’ breathing tube and replaced it with a tracheotomy tube, as well as a feeding tube “to provide nutritional support.”

In a statement, doctors said Giffords can breathe on her own but the breathing tube was being used as a precaution. With it removed, doctors said they can now evaluate her ability to speak. The hospital said that such procedures are “not uncommon” among intensive care patients suffering serious brain injuries.


UPDATE– Nine year old (Arizona – Nine year old born from the attacks of 9-11 is the youngest dead in shooting)

This is what you get when reality, and male aggression, undirected (g-dless) runs amok.  He doesn’t sound crazy.  He sounds like a male who’s been misguided and confused by the direction-less counter culture that we are forced to endure.


Updated 5:19 p.m. The Associated Press is reporting that Jared Lee Loughner is the suspect in the shooting of 18 people, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Tuscon, Ariz., Saturday morning.

A Jared Lee Loughner who had a MySpace page cited Mein Kampf as one of his favorite books,according to the Huffington Post, which has been taken down. Giffords is Jewish.

A YouTube account registered to a person of the same name — Jared Loughner — had several videos on it ranting about currency, English speakers and mind control techniques.

The last video posted to the account, “Final Thoughts”:

CNN has reported the suspected shooter was born in 1988 and the Washington Post is reporting that he is a veteran.

<Just because he was at MEPS (maybe) doesn’t mean he was a vet.>

The media is POLITICIZING this and is saying that this idiot child was part of the tea party.  This is sooooo far from the truth.  They know it!

She is alive, but in surgery currently.

She is brave due to her ability to speak to the people of Arizona.

She won that seat against a Tea Party candidate.  She do so by being conservative.

I wish the media would stop making it like it was some natural disaster.

This is a woman who was shot by some vigilantly – a terrorist.  A really bad person.

US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona, multiple wounded:

Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot on Saturday, according to reports.

Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot on Saturday, according to reports.




Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and six others were shot by a lone gunman Saturday morning during a scheduled public event outside a Tuscon grocery store, according to an NPR report.

Despite earlier reports that the Congresswoman was killed, Reuters and Politico reported that she is in surgery.

“She’s alive,” Giffords’ spokesperson reportedly told Reuters.

The Pima County sheriff’s office told NPR that six others at the event were killed.

Giffords, 40, was chatting with a couple in her district when the shooter opened fire from about four feet away.

The shooter, described as a man in his teens or early 20s, was tackled by a bystander as he ran from the scene, according to NPR.


<If someone there had a conceal carry license, maybe the guy could have been taken down before shooting at all 12 people.  Even if one life would have been saved, then things would be better.  >


The gunfire erupted around 10 a.m. during the “Congress at Your Corner” event outside a Safeway store. A witness told CNN that 15 to 20 gunshots were fired during the shooting spree.

Giffords was shot along with members of her staff, according to Peter Michaels, news director of Arizona Public Media.

The Congresswoman is known for cracking down on illegal immigration, urging deployment of the National Guard and new technology to protect the Arizona border.

Before her election to Congress in 2006, the Arizona native served in the state legislature.

Her husband, Capt. Mark Kelly, is a Navy pilot, a Desert Storm veteran and an astronaut.

She was one of 20 vulnerable Democrats singled out by ex-GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin for defeat in the 2010 elections.
