Thread Name: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
The shooter's politics don't have to figure in. Somebody who is unbalanced can be induced to kill someone else regardless of the shooter's or the victim's politics. That doesn't let the instigators off the hook. This woman was on rightwing hitlists for some time and it seems unlikely that didn't play a role in pushing this guy to do what he did whether he was politically sympathetic to them or not. That's one resaon you have to be careful what you say in public because someone could take you up on it for ANY reason at all.
