Screen grab from shooter Jared Laughner's MySpace site
RELATED FROM POLITICO:
The police have named a suspect in the shooting of Gabriel Giffords, Jared Loughner. A person under that name has a YouTube account that includes suggestions of anti-government political views.
""You don't have to accept hte federalist laws," the video above says; it also insists on the gold and silver standard, talks of revolution, and suggests that the government is imposing "mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar."
His linked MySpace page, no longer available, included statements about the gold standard and about SWAT teams paying for their equipment with illegal currency.
Among his long list of favorite books in his YouTube profile is Mein Kampf.
Loughner also "favorited" just one video on YouTube, which shows the burning of an American flag and is accompanied by an anti-government screed. A sample from that screed:
