First Photos of Giffords Released Since Tucson Shooting

June 12, 2011

By Associated Press,

PHOENIX – The first photos of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since she was shot in the head in a mass shooting in Tucson about five months ago were released early Sunday.

The photos appeared on her Facebook page.

Both pictures show the congresswoman outside. In one she is alone and smiling at the camera, her hair trimmed short with the skin on the side of her head slightly disclored but with no clear sign of any scarring. In the other, she is sitting with a woman.

Giffords has been in a Houston rehab facility since two weeks after the Jan. 8 shooting. Six people were killed and 13 were injured, including Giffords.

Since the shooting, the only time the public was able to glimpse Giffords was April 27 as she boarded a plane to Florida to watch astronaut husband Mark Kelly launch into space. The grainy footage showed Giffords slowly but purposefully walking up the airplane’s stairs.

    Fact is I’m tired of hearing about this congresswoman. The media saturates the news about her but neglects to highlight the other victims. Taxpayers are surely footing the bill for all of her care but what has been done for the other victims? Of course we know that the shooter has been protected by the “LAW” by claiming he is insane, bullshyt!!, he was caught in the act and should be taken outback and hanged. This scumbag will live off of taxpayers for the next 30-40 years; free housing, food, clothing, education, medical – what a stupid society we have become.

    This was a very tragic event in Arizona. The shooting was an event that effected almost every American. The most tragic event of the day was how quickly the liberal media was ready and willing to call the shooting the responsibility of a right wing radical out to change the political land scape. But it turned out to be a far left liberal radical that had come unhinged and the public safety authority and the administrative arm of the university failed in their jobs.
