The Anti-Defamation League said it is "critical" to determine whether the man alleged to have shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was influenced by hate speech. "It is critical to determine whether the alleged shooter, 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner, acted alone or with others, and whether he was influenced by extremist literature, propaganda or hate speech," the ADL said in its statement Sunday. Giffords, an Arizona Democrat in her third term, is in critical condition after the shooting Saturday at a Tucson shopping mall that left six dead and at least a dozen injured.
