You can't release potential evidence before a trial.

The actions of the officials and media don't give legitimacy to the notion the tape would hinder the trial and persecution as they have already released much of this information verbally.
The shooter has been described as a man in his late-teens or early twenties, and reports say about 15-20 shots were fired into the crowd. Sixteen other people, including some of Giffords’ staff, were shot, and officials confirmed six fatalities, including federal judge John M. Roll and a 9-year old child. The gunman, identified as Jared Loughner, has been detained.
U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, an Arizona Democrat, and 11 other people were shot at an event today in Tucson. The congresswoman was holding a “Congress On Your Corner” event at a Safeway grocery store when someone fired 15-20 shots. A spokesperson for the Pima County sheriff told reporters at least 12 others were shot and confirmed the representative was “shot point blank in the head.
Witnesses said the suspect, Jared Loughner, walked calmly up to Mrs Giffords and fired at point blank range.
Loughner then fired 15-20 shots into the crowd, witnesses said. He was tackled to the ground by two brave men.

Who cares how many bullets he fired, he only needed to pull the trigger once and that would be too much. Stop trying to micromanage un-important issues by trying to strip away other peoples rights.edit on 20-1-2011 by circuitsports because: (no reason given)
To the OP you can't be serious, releasing damning evidence before trial is a fast route to a mistrial stop being paranoid and start being realistic.edit on 20-1-2011 by circuitsports because: (no reason given)

It makes perfect sense to me why the video would not be released prior to a trial. If the video were released now, today, it would make jury selection much more difficult. The key to a jury trial is to find an impartial jury. Releasing the video now, which would be covered coast to coast on every MSM News outlet would do nothing but "taint" the potential Jury pool.
FBI won't release Jared Lee Loughner video. Therefore, coverup
this guy was not the only shooter and the congress woman may not have been the main target at all, possibly the Judge fellow known to be a citizen judge protecting citizen rights...
The Zionist congress(man) wasn't shot. Its a fraud. The target was the Catholic judge. The other deaths are ancillary to the cause of Zionism in America. She will MIRACULOUSLY "recover" in a very short time. I repeat - GIFFORDS WAS NEVER SHOT!!!!!!!!!
