Unhinged, All Right: Jared Lee Loughner

Unhinged, All Right: Jared Lee Loughner

Ratings: (0)|Views: 528 |Likes:
Published by Jane Gilgun
The acts of violence that Jared Lee Loughner committed are so horrible to think about that I had to write my analysis in the form of a poem. I have interviewed about 150 men who have committed violent acts, most in prison, some for life for serial murders. Through these interviews, I have developed an understanding of what violence means to perpetrators. In this poem, I apply what I know about violence to what is known about the life of Jared Lee Lougher.

I think he should always be referred to as some guy...no face...no name...never existed...his identity effaced from the internet...everywhere. Let us diminuate all the killers. They are nothing. They are mistakes. Dust specks and dribbles...gaseous exhalations...let us speak of them no more...

Thanks for the great poem and insight. I've also worked with violent men for many years and agree with violence expert James Gilligan, M.D., "I have yet to see a serious act of violence that was not provoked by the experience of feeling shamed and humiliated, disrespected and ridiculed and that did not represent the attempt to prevent or undo the shame--no matter how severe a punishment."

I wrote this a year ago, and I still think it says a lot about violence.
