I think that this website further informs the discussion here:
There is more than a little evidence to suggest that the Sheriff in Pima county was aware of this Jared guy's shennanigans, had been in receipt of multiple complaints, but had soft-peddled their containment of him because Jared's mommy is (was) a member of the county heavily democrat-leaning political structure.
Jared Loughner has been making death threats by phone to many people in Pima County including staff of Pima Community College, radio personalities and local bloggers.

Amy Loughner is a Natural Resource specialist for the Pima County Parks and Recreation.
