Wall Street Journal Publishes More Details of Loughner's Online Life

Posted By on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 at 11:36 AM

There's a stunning article worth reading in today's Wall Street Journal about Jared Loughner and his posts to a message board for a online game called Earth Empires. Any virtual forum with some shield of anonymity where a bunch of young men hang out can be a wildly disturbing and juvenile, but it's hard to even process what was going through Loughner's head:

On April 24, Mr. Loughner titled a new online thread: "Would you hit a Handy Cap Child/ Adult?" He wrote: "This is a very interesting question….There are mental retarded children. They're possessing teachers that are typing for money. This will never stop….The drug addicts need to be weeded out to be more intelligent. The Principle of this is that them c— educators need to stop being pigs."

Later that day, he posted a rant titled "Why Rape," which said women in college enjoyed being raped. "There are Rape victims that are under the influence of a substance. The drinking is leading them to rape. The loneliness will bring you to depression. Being alone for a very long time will inevitably lead you to rape."
