What was in his head? YouTube reveals grievances on currencies, grammar, religion, Constitution

  • Updated

A series of videos on YouTube by Jared Lee Loughner -  whose name, city and school affiliation match that of the man apprehended in today's mass shooting in Tucson - spell out a variety of grievances.

One of the videos has a title sequence that reads "My Final Thoughts: Jared Lee Loughner!'

The videos contain a series of sometimes incoherent grievances involving currencies, grammar, the Constitution and religion. 

The videos are linked nearby. 

From Loughner's YouTube profile: "My favorite interest was reading, and I studied grammar. Conscience dreams were a great study in college!"

His favorite books list: "Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Wizard Of OZ, Aesop Fables, The Odyssey, Alice Adventures Into Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, Peter Pan, To Kill A Mockingbird, We The Living, Phantom Toll Booth, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Pulp, Through The Looking Glass, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha, The Old Man And The Sea, Gulliver's Travels, Mein Kampf, The Republic, and Meno."
