YouTube video which prompted Loughner's suspension from College

A YouTube video that prompted the suspension of Tucson shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner in September was released Friday by officials at Pima Community College and included rambling statements such as "We are examining the torture of students" and "This is genocide in America."

The video, no longer on the website, was released to The Times following a public records request and offers the extended example of Loughner's voice.

A campus police officer who saw the video "positively recognized the voice and the reflection in the window as student Jared Loughner," according to a school police report. That same officer had removed Loughner from his biology class Sept. 23 after a disruptive outburst. (Full story at LA Times)
