Safeway? Not so much, I guess.

Jeez, that's terrible. Hopefully a witness is able to identify the shooter.

She died. So did 6 others. The shooter is in custody. She was holding a public event.

Giffords had a brick thrown through her window after the health care vote. She was also one of the people Palin put a 'target' over leading up to the mid-terms: http://usat.ly/e4NSjp

I'm not surprised that two accurate sentences qualify as 'ignorance' around here.

Do you have any evidence that the killer was motivated by Palin or had any other "political" motive?

I didn't say this person was directly motivated by Palin, I was alluding to that kind of rhetoric some on the right had no issue using last election cycle, when they basically laughed off the idea some idiot might act on their words.

We'll see if it's not politically motivated. You're going to have a hard time convincing me at the moment that a congresswoman being gunned down at a public event wasn't politically motivated.
