Crazed gunman Jared Loughner, who killed six people in 2011 including a federal judge and wounded 13 including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, was sentenced Thursday in Tucson to seven consecutive life sentences.

U.S. District Judge Larry Burns on Thursday called the sentence “astronomical” and “justified” because Loughner, 24, “knew what he was doing,” according to the Arizona Republic.

“The facts show he traveled there with the purpose of shooting Ms. Giffords,” Burns said.

The 2 1/2 hour hearing including comments from Loughner’s victims.

NEW ORLEANS — Two of U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s strongest backers in Washington expressed concern Wednesday about the recent allegation that a second top prosecutor in his office had posted intemperate remarks online taking bitter aim at targets of federal probes.

Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. and Sen. David Vitter, R-La., both sounded troubled about the charge by River Birch landfill magnate Fred Heebe that First Assistant U.S. Attorney Jan Mann is the caustic online author “eweman.”

Vitter also said he is worried about the delayed public response from Letten, who has yet to offer any public defense of Mann or specifics on the case since Heebe filed his defamation lawsuit against her on Friday.

FBI Agent, Reporter Published Book About Bizarre Heist

Steve Neavling

A retired FBI agent and newspaper reporter have written a book about the bizarre bank heist involving a pipe bomb that exploded around the neck of a pizza delivery driver, the Associated Press reports.

The book, “Pizza Bomber: The Untold Story of America’s Most Shocking Bank Robbery,” was released Tuesday.

The idea behind the book is to provide new details and dispel claims that the pizza delivery driver, Brian Wells, was an innocent pawn in a sophisticated heist, the AP reports.

Retired FBI special agent Jerry Clark worked on the 2003 case that involved a strange list of characters and said Wells was not the innocent victim he pretended to be.

Clark said Wells “Brian Wells “had some association with these people and had some cooperation with committing this crime,” the AP wrote.

 A long-awaited autopsy has revealed that a U.S. Border Patrol agent died of a gunshot wound to the head by what federal authorities describe as friendly fire along the Arizona-Mexico border, CNN reports.

The report, released Wednesday, shows that Nicholas J. Ivie, 30, of Provo, Utah, died Oct. 2 by a “penetrating gunshot wound of the head involving the brain.”

Ivie was responding to an alarm at the border when he became involved in a shootout that also wounded another agent.

In a preliminary investigation, the FBI said evidence suggests the shooting was between Border Patrol agents who had become confused.

Legalization of Marijuana in Two States Could Spark a Clash with Federal Authorities

 Steve Neavling

 When voters approved ballot language to legalize recreational use of pot Tuesday, they set the stage for a showdown with federal authorities, the Associated Press reports.

Pot advocates and opponents are closely watching Washington state and Colorado to see how federal authorities respond to decriminalization.

Federal law still prohibits the use of marijuana.

Not happy about the passage in Colorado is its governor, John Hickenlooper.

“Federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug, so don’t break out the Cheetos or Goldfish too quickly,” Hickenlooper told the AP.

The Justice Department, which has been prosecuting pot retailers in states where medicinal marijuana is legal, has not said yet how it will respond to the new laws.

President Obama has assembled a feral partnership among law enforcement agencies to improve homeland security, Courthouse News Service reports.

The White House Homeland Security Partnership Council and Steering Committee will include the Justice Department, State Department and Homeland Security.

A total of 19 agencies will be represented, the Courthouse News Service wrote.

The idea is to “enhance our ability to address homeland security priorities, from responding to natural disasters to preventing terrorism, by utilizing diverse perspectives, skills, tools, and resources,” Obama said.

He added, “We must tap the ingenuity outside government through strategic partnerships with the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, and community-based organizations.”

A full “Sugarloaf” hound (by Bill Reid) this dog killed 10 reds in 10 sucessive races ahead of his pack of eleven good Julys and did it from 50 to 500 yards ahead of all others. Thirty six hounds were with him in 3 races and he did the work without noticing the others, none were in his class. He wrote for a dog to match this one(Bullet is his name)and I sent his full brother, named Bill, a white and red marked hound Cheap Canada Goose, which I think will keep his brother(Bullet) busy..

Samuelson said the players were talking before the game about their upcoming break. Players such as Napheesa Collier (O’Fallon, Mo.) and Kia Nurse (Hamilton Canada Goose Sale, Ont.) see their family throughout the season, whether at home games or on the road. Collier’s parents have been a regular presence at road games and were sitting behind the bench Wednesday night..

Now artificial Christmas trees have come a long, long way since their aluminum cousins in “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” In the past limitations included the quality of the green color, fake looking needles, painstaking assembly (anyone still feeding each branch separately into the trunk?) and no add ons or options like an outlet at the treetop for light up tree toppers. The reason we selected this tree from Balsam Hill was to show you just how realistic they’ve become. The trademarked True Needles are full and tapered at the end.

Fewer fake accents and just real people, and stories that are believable. We all been through those post Katrina days and how wild things were. It not far off. The two McDonald’s All Americans you speak of are Mohamed Bamba and Brandon McCoy, and, yes Canada Goose Outlet, they are currently uncommited. At this point, Illinois is not on their radar, and I honestly don’t think some sort of late hail mary push by Brad Underwood would change that. Bamba probably ends up at Kentucky or Duke (Michigan is a dark horse but still a candidate) and McCoy likely lands at Arizona, Oregon or possibly Michigan State..

When too much current flows through R3, Q1 will start to turn on Outlet Canada Goose, which starts turning off Q2. Turning off Q2 reduces the current through the LED’s and R3. So we’ve created a “feedback loop”, which continuously monitors the LED current and keeps it exactly at the set point at all times.

Infantry had landed in Marseilles and moved up through France via the French National Railway famed 40 8 (a type of boxcar). We stopped in late December at Lager Oberhofen in Alsace to make final preparations to move up on the line with the U. S. 1923 Tudor: Modern and metal styles blend with vintage in this newly remodeled house with high vaulted ceilings. The kitchen has new counters, tile backsplash, lighting and flooring. The cabinets were repainted and rose gold hardware and fixtures installed.
