Tragedy in Arizona: Complaint Filed By United States Attorney

Everyone is still reeling in the shock of the events of Saturday morning where a gunman attempted to kill U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords while she was at a Safeway Store in Tucson, Arizona presenting a "Congress on your Corner" event, and did kill Chief Judge John Roll, Giffords' staff member Gabriel Zimmerman, a nine year old girl, and three other people as well as injuring several others. The United States Attorney's Office has filed a five-count complaint against Jared Lee Loughner. The press release from the US Attorney's Office is available here.

Also of interest in these tragic events is the press conference held by Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik who denounced the "vitriolic rhetoric we hear day in and day out" and the effect it is having on our youth. Here is the video:
