Who is Jared Lee Loughner? Caitie Parker's tweets

Caitie Parker of Oro Valley, Arizona

Caitie Parker of Oro Valley, Arizona claims to have been a friend of Jared Lee Loughner, 22, accused of attempting to assassinate Representative Gabrielle Giffords in a Tucson Arizona shooting spree that  injured or killed 18 people Saturday January 8, 2011.    Giffords, who took a bullet in the head, is in hospital in serious condition.  A federal judge and a nine-year-old girl were among those killed.

On her Twitter profile page, Caitie introduces herself as "a singer/songwriter, a foodie with a passion for baking, & politically charged gal, just trying to make the world a better place."

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.
