Officer Stopped Suspect On Day Of Ariz. Shooting

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The suspect in a deadly Arizona shooting ran a red light and was stopped by a wildlife officer less than three hours before the attack that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department says an officer stopped Jared Loughner at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

The officer took Loughner’s driver’s license and vehicle registration information. Dispatchers checked the information and found no outstanding warrants on Loughner or his vehicle. He was given a verbal warning and released.

      Relax little lady. it wasn’t even a legit department that pulled him over. it was fish and game they don’t know any better or care to conduct a thorough traffic stop.

        Ok little girlie. if they had authority to pull him over, they had authority to give him a ticket.

    A verbal warning for running a red light???? Now that’s encouraging!!!. I guess he would’ve gotten a ticket only if he’d run the red light AND killed someone.

    America has become very sad and scary. WHAT ARE WE SOOOOO ANGRY ABOUT????? The tolerance level is almost non-existant. We should be able to agree to disagree.We’re back to the wild-wild west. Only it’s not limited to the west. We’ve taken prayer out of every venue. But prayer kept us safe. Maybe we should think of restoring it. If only in our hearts.

    The land of the free….and the home of the brave….There’s nothing “brave” about ambushing people. When their freedom was taken, so was ours. Because just by the grace were some of us not at that same location.
