Arizona Shooting Questions I'd Like Answered

Saturday's horrific incident in Tucson appears to be the work of a mentally unstable individual.

So many writings attempt to lay blame for Saturday's shooting with conservative media. 

But there are questions these blamers fail to include in their accusations.

Here are a few points I suggest they seek to clarify:

Did the man now charged with the shootings, Jared Loughner, get the mental health exam that was reportedly requested by his school? If so, what did it show?  If not, why not? 

Did Loughner have a job? If not, who provided the money for him to acquire a pistol, ammo and at least one extended magazine? 

If someone provided the means to acquire the weapon, did this person know of the concerns raised by Loughner's school? 

And  there's something in the Arisona Daily Star  that those attempting to blame the media overlook: 

"WOW! I'm glad i didn't kill myself. I'll see you on National T.v.! This is foreshadow .... why doesn't anyone talk to me?.." he posted on MySpace Dec. 14.

On Dec. 13, he wrote: "I don't feel good: I'm ready to kill a police officer! I can say it."

Have you ever heard of anyone who advocated the random killing of a police officer?  If so, who?  

And were they aligned with any particular political cause?
