Courtroom Outburst Clarified
A court transcript clarifies the ramblings of Jared Lee Loughner, accused of a shooting spree in Arizona where Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot in the head in Tuscon. Loughner had lowered his head to within inches of the table he was sitting at during a hearing where he was declared mentally incompetent to stand trial. Reporters say he raised his head and began a loud and angry rant that was difficult to understand. The transcript says: "Thank you for the free kill. She died in front of me. Your cheesiness." Various media reported the rant as "Thank you for the freak show. She died in front of me." Other reporters said it sounded like "You're treasonous."
