Today’s most viscerally upsetting Arizona news comes thankfully without visual accompaniment as of yet, as the New York Times reports that gunman Jared Loughner was having photos developed at a local Walgreens, which depict him posing in a g-sting and holding his Glock 9mm. Rest assured this is the first and only time that the phrase “naked buttocks and dressed in a bright red g-string” will lead an article in the Times. Let’s all hope to never see these pictures, while also acknowledging that in a world like this they’ll probably be on TMZ by the day’s end.
More from the Times:
The photos were turned over to the police by Walgreens, where Mr. Loughner had taken them to be developed. In some of the photos he is holding the gun near his crotch, and in others, presumably shot in a mirror, he is holding the gun next to his buttocks, the police said. It was not yet clear when the photos were taken or whether Mr. Loughner had ordered any prints.
