Jared Loughner parents: Loners like their son

More details are coming out about the gunman in the horrific AZ shooting over the weekend. One thing people are wondering is what are Jared Loughner’s parents like? Did they know son Jared L. Loughner was planning this shocking attack? Was he acting on anything in his upbringing? It’s possible the apple didn’t fall far from the tree in the case of Jared Loughner and his parents.
Neighbors say that Jared Loughner’s parents were “loners who rarely spoke even to their immediate neighbors,” according to the Washington Post.
One neighbor says the family pretty much ignored everyone else. Their neighborhood, a group of small ranch houses in northwest Tucson, is modest. Apparently the family has a dog, which Jared walked. Randy Loughner likes to work on cars. Amy Loughner is Jared’s mom.
Of course few of us would want to be judged solely on what our neighbors think, but one has to wonder if Jared Lee Laughner’s parents also saw his MySpace and Facebook pages and had any idea their son was in serious trouble.

One thought on “Jared Loughner Parents: Loners Just Like Their Son

  1. Earl says:

    Very strangley worded article. Using past tense to describe his parents as if they no longer exist.

    Something is fishy.

    Why haven’t the police or the media reported ANY contact with Jared’s parents nearly forty hours after the shooting?

    You would think that reporters would be camped out in front of the family house.

    Perhaps the Manchurian Candidate has no real parents in the Tucson area?
