Jared Loughner Stopped By Officers Hours Before Shooting
This complete blew my mind when I read this. I know that you can’t detain someone without probable cause, but I think that anyone who looks THIS crazy, should bedetained.
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A wildlife officer pulled over the suspect in the assassination attempt against an Arizona congresswoman less than three hours before the deadly attack, authorities said Wednesday as they pieced together more details of a frenzied morning.
Jared Loughner ran a red light but was let off with a warning at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, the Arizona Game and Fish Department said. The officer took Loughner’s driver’s license and vehicle registration information but found no outstanding warrants on Loughner or his vehicle.
Wildlife officers don’t usually make traffic stops unless public safety is at risk, such as running a red light. The stop was on an access road that connects to Interstate 10, well away from the grocery store, said Game and Parks spokesman Jim Paxon.
