The Chase

by Rich Lowry

From the New York Post, this bizarre, very raw scene:

Loughner’s dad, Randy, told authorities that on Saturday morning, he saw his troubled son outside, rummaging through the trunk of their car and pulling out a black bag.

When he tried to ask his 22-year-old son what he was doing, Loughner muttered something — and then started to run.

The dad said that he gave chase in his truck but that his son soon disappeared into the desert.
