Caitie spent Saturday responding to questions about Jared Lee Loughner on Twitter. These are her tweets.
That's all for tonight folks. Goodnight. @VaginaHedgeFund no, just friends, nothing more. @RufusRLeaking first few years of hs yes. Junior year & on, no. @johnedelstein possibly. I'm looking back at this at a 14-19 year old. Who knows if any of us knew what for sure we were yet. @ko_im_16 closure, not yet. More digging deep to try & find a root cause of his insanity. @informedblackmn not craving attention at all just replying to those who are tweeting me. Shedding light, that's it. @BronxBebe hopefully by Monday I'll be a no one again. @johnedelstein not as I knew him no. Very accepting of everyone. But that was 3 years ago. @nyctheblog 32 counting Facebook, Email, & DM's. (not adding the actual tweets to me) @FriendThatCooks 3 years ago when I saw him last he was more leftist. Now I don't know. @johnedelstein & when I say "us" or "our" I mean our group. There were 5-6 of us that hung out in hs. @johnedelstein well for the Bush/Kerry election we all wore "1 term president" buttons. That election was HUGE to us. @StevenFudd it's been a whirlwind for sure. Thanks for being so respectful & nice. :) @johnedelstein we listened to political punk in high school & agreed with their leftist opinions for the most part Anti-Flag was our band. @H_Nicole_Young he dated one of my friends (who was a girl) in hs. Also had many group discussions about girls (I hung out w/ mostly guys) @DaveMinger no. Last time I saw him I had just started dating someone & he was super excited & happy for me. @johnedelstein also probably more libertarian & definitely socially liberal. @johnedelstein liberal in wanting to change the way the world was run, we both wanted to. He took it to an extreme I never would've. @whatmakesexpert I've never had kids. I was replying to a woman regarding the loss of her own child. @icwhatudo crazy. Maybe they wanted a right spin. Either way it's probably more psychological than anything. @H_Nicole_Young when I knew him he did. Not sure about now. @TexSean awww you poor thing, I'm so sorry. My grief is more in disbelief. @pursueliberty who knows. It could all be merely a psychotic snap. I don't think anyone knows. I surely don't. @icwhatudo leave to the media to leave out the important 3 years ago but. Thanks for the heads up. @Capt_Hawkeye I'm gonna pass this time. Did 2 interviews & I'm gonna leave it at that. Thanks so much for the offer though. Much success. @icwhatudo he was leftwing when I knew him in hs & college, 3 years ago. So he may have changed, who knows. But thanks. @StevenFudd I don't know. As I've stated before, I hadn't seen him in 3 years. @MindlessPrey Adam Richman from Man V Food @Altnewsforum he wore shirts & bracelets about it. & liked to discuss 2012 w/ everyone! @H_Nicole_Young happy? http://twitpic.com/3odowm http://twitpic.com/3odown http://twitpic.com/3odowj @StevenFudd his left arm? @H_Nicole_Young Jared in my yearbook. The band was an alternative band. I have a few pics in a box, somewhere... http://twitpic.com/3odkge @LucretiaPruitt will do, thanks :) @Capt_Hawkeye ignoring you about what? Refresh my memory. Sifting through a flood of tweets. May have missed you. @H_Nicole_Young in a band not hs band. I'm trying to find everything. Been a little busy all day. You can think what you will doesnt matter @H_Nicole_Young tobacco supported hardly. Just a girl recanting memories, nothing more. It just turned in a media circus, I didn't do this. @nyctheblog yeah over 20 facebook messages, emails, & people harassing my poor mom & sister. @BlogLuvr29 you're so very kind. I'll be fine. Send your prayers to the families they need more help than I. @java_ I hope everyone sees it that way. The last thing I'd want is for people to think I'm capable of what he did, or how he thinks. @georgehencken thanks you're so very nice! @Barrister1966 there's a RT button I used it, end of story. I posted a lot of things trying to figure out the madness today. @toyotabedzrock yep, I'm merely stating how I remembered an old friend as he was when I saw him last, 3 years ago. I've make that clear. @nyctheblog wow, I knew it was A LOT, but 45, wow! That's just insanity. I can't even process all this media madness. @veronacodex thank you. I'm not looking for media fame. Someone asked about Jared, I answered. Never expected this. Just an average girl. @BrandonJCarroll thanks so much. You're fantastic! @MindlessPrey could be. I always try to see the best in others, so maybe I was blind. Who knows. Just have to let it be. @BrandonJCarroll you're words are so kind, & so very much appreciated. @georgehencken thank you so very much. I'm glad I could be used positively (I hope) in such darkness. @Barrister1966 I RT what I RT & whatever RT you're talking about it was the knowledge on my feed at the time, doesn't mean I agree. @Tiffanybr I'm trying. Now I know a smidge of how the fantastic Ted Williams feels. Phones blowing up!! @LaLaLives I'm trying you're words are very kind. @kurtbradwill I never said anything about him being a Tea Partier, check your facts. @Toka248 nope @LaLaLives trying. Just so much to wrap my head around. Thank you for being so compassionate. @Tiffanybr I'm sorry he became this person. Praying for everyone involved, it's just horrible. @georgehencken very true. Just wish I could've done something to help & stop this tragedy. You're very kind. @sigridmac thank you for your kind words, they mean a lot. @H_Nicole_Young believe what you want. I know the truth & god does, that's all that matters. @BrandonJCarroll thank you. It's nice that people can have compassion, in such a bleak world of negativity. @veronacodex I wish I could give everyone a hug & apologize for lack of knowledge to know, that a guy I new, was troubled, & didn't see it. @climatebrad very true, thank you @Barrister1966 that was all before I knew anything. I was just RT'ing all the speculation on what caused this tragedy. @michaeldcarney thank you very much! @Gnushound very true. The guy I knew 3 years ago isn't the evil he became today. @MindlessPrey thank you, I hope everyone involved finds peace @MindlessPrey yeah a map. It's like downwiththe20.com or something like that. @ArizStFanatic42 I'm not, just wish I could've done something to help or sway him into sanity. @shaunlandry trying. Just trying to calm down, still in shock! @CurbsideAudio thanks so much!! @stewmj I went to high school, college, & was in a band with him. I know what I know & not asking anyone to believe me in this madness. @stewmj I looked in the yearbook to make sure I spelled his last name correct. Could never remember just odd spelling.Believe what you want @LaLaLives thank you so much. I'm trying, but my brain has other plans. @Indica_Man thanks. I just wish I could've done something. Feeling helpless, not so fun. You're very kind. :) @MindlessPrey I have no idea. I think he slowly descended in a psychotic break. Something in him snapped. He wasn't always like this. @kAZual520 she had a "target list" Take back the 20. Dems in leadership had targets & names on a map. It's very odd, don't get it. @BrandonJCarroll I'm sure it will. I'm still just floating above it. It's like a dream I keep rewinding. @SkipTerrio your words were very touching & something I needed to hear. I truly thank you. @SkyZiegler you're welcome. I'm glad I could be of some help in this horrible tragedy. Can't help but think if I had been there today, if things would've come out differently. Maybe I could've talked him down. Stages of grief? @shaunlandry haha why thank you. Your kindness is so needed right now, can't thank you enough. @shaunlandry sweet. I bet that's fun. @FrankMorrison Anti-Flag is a band. Rep. Giffords reportedly awake in hospital room, recognizes husband - Politico http://politi.co/e5FRw4 @shaunlandry love Tyler Florence. His food always looks so yummy. Those killed today: Christina Greene, 9, Gabe Zimmerman, 30, John Roll, 63, Dorthy Murray, 76, Dorwin Stoddard, 76, Phyllis Scheck, 79 @shaunlandry nice. I love baking. I'm a cupcake queen haha. @larrywitness today is a horrible day, but people are suffering more than I. The hate should be turned to love for the victims & families. @caldodge thanks for your kindness, much appreciated. @LaLaLives very much appreciated, thank you. @TQMKA b/c they're all related. I'm all about peace & acceptance. That goes hand in hand in my faith & political views. Everyones well wishes & kindness are much appreciated. Now let's direct our positivity towards the victims & families. @lonelyfame I have nothing against differing political views. That's what our country is built on, freedom of opinions & beliefs. Thank you! @ToureX thank you sir. I haven't seen him in 3 years, but the guy I knew was a polar opposite of the evil he became today. @ToureX I did know him & as stunned & horrified as anyone else. The Jared I knew, want like this. All about peace. @Brothergrimace the question was odd & didn't make sense, I can't remember what it was. Just know it was weird. @royaldavis the band It's Like Love? Love those guys. I tweeter about Jared b/c writing is my means of coping. I had to write to get it off my chest. People hanging on my words, NOT expected. Anyone who says I'm milking or lying for media attention is WRONG! one tweet & my phone, twitter, & facebook blew up. I never wanted this. @theEcon_tweets I was saying how annoying it was when newscasters smile through horrific stories. I'm all about peace never murder, ever! @TheBakerOfOz I went to school with him & if you choose not to believe that it's your prerogative. I never asked for the attention. @beckerz_311 I never said he was unusual, I was just answering a question. @PaulaInTulsaOK thank you for your kindness. In a sea of negativity, your well wishes are appreciated. @SarahsAngel thank you. I hope all of us can come together in spite of this tragedy. @cdmichal thank you. It all has yet to sink in. Just praying for the victims by Jared's senseless act. @shaunlandry I stated I went to high school, college, & was in a band with him, & made it clear how I knew him THEN not NOW. @DoubleDutchPoli I haven't had a chance to let it sink it. Thank you for your positivity. @theEcon_tweets what does that have to do with anything regarding today. I was making a observance of a TV show. I voted for Giffords & came into this story wondering what kind of evil could do this. Sadly, I know him, & I'm not proud of that. I do not condone anything Jarod has done, it is horrific. I'm still in shock & haven't stopped shaking since the news. Did GMA(+ ABC Radio) & The Today Show. No more interviews. I said how I knew Jared, & my shock at this incident. Now to reflect & pray. I can't manage all these media requests & @ replies. Too much too fast, can't keep up. This is a circus. Good Morning America just called me. @antderosa it's loughner just checked my year book. @lakarune I haven't seen him since '07. Then, he was left wing. @noboa more left. I haven't seen him since '07 though. He became very reclusive. @antderosa he had a lot of friends until he got alcohol poisoning in '06, & dropped out of school. Mainly loner very philosophical. @antderosa As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy. @antderosa he was a pot head & into rock like Hendrix,The Doors, Anti-Flag. I haven't seen him in person since '07 in a sign language class @antderosa He was a political radical & met Giffords once before in '07, asked her a question & he told me she was "stupid & unintelligent" @antderosa I can. That is him @antderosa I went to high school, college, & was in a band with the gunman. This tragedy has just turned to horrific.
