    I am shocked that your program would advertise all evening.. "Watch the Loughner parents broken down, crying." on AC360.com. Is this a side-show for CNN? Is Anderson slowly morphing into the next Jerry Springer? This is sensationalism and shows absolutely no human decency.

    This is the most ridiculous story I've seen today. Loughner's parents are extremely upset and don't want to talk with the press. Duhhh

    I just finished watching your video of the interview with neighbor of Amy and Randy Loughner in Tucson AZ. These parents need support or some sort of assistance. They are totally devastated and could be on the brink of suicide.

    Please try not to isolate these parents or single them out which could potentially push them over the edge or they take their own lives. Please get a counselor or some sort of mental health counseling for this couple. I know its quite obviously too late for their son but someone have mercy on this couple and help them. They cried out for the neighbor to help-he's an older man and doesn't have the ability to see that they get counseling or some sort of assistance. Our society needs to do the right thing and try to help those parents. They didn't kill anyone-I know they had a son that did and he should and will be punished for what he's done. My sympathy is also for the dead and injured ones. Everyone in this terrible tragedy from victims and their families to the parents of the shooter need assistance and support. Please get Dr Gupta or Dr Phil involved. The media should not be stalking the parents and leave them alone. They feel bad enough as it is and shouldn't have to worry about who's outside waiting for an interview! Please have mercy upon all the victims and families. This was just such a horrible horrible tragedy. Thank you for listening.

    The parents will suffer the rest of their lives because of what their son did. Not only do they carry the weight of the innocent victims, they have lost their son. Their only son.
    Jared spiraled into madness whether his parents were in denial or not able to do anything legally, I dont know.
    Please don't persecute the parents. This is a tragedy that will affect many people's lives for as long as they live.
    Someday maybe we will learn a better way to keep this from happening. But a young man in August 1966 shot from a tower in Austin, Texas.
    What has really changed?

    What parent wouldn't be broken down and crying in a situation like this – the parents are not evil; they are victims just like everyone else. The press needs to not stalk out the house in hope of getting an interview and leave these people alone to try to pull their lives back together and to grieve together over their son and the people he killed and hurt.
