Sheriff: Loughner targeted Giffords, but not over politics

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said in an interview Monday that Jared Lee Loughner "targeted the congresswoman specifically; there's considerable evidence to substantiate that." But there's no evidence that the shootings were part of a political agenda, he said, noting that "When you try to rationalize irrational acts, you wind up with zero."
