TUCSON, Ariz. – The YouTube video that sparked Jared Loughner's suspension from Pima Community College was released to the Los Angeles Times on Friday.  The video is believed to have been created by the alleged Tucson shooter on September 23, 2010.

The 3 minute 53 second video titled “Pima Community College School – Genocide/Scam – Free Education – Broken United States Constitution” is narrated by a man believed to be Loughner.  The video contains a series of bizarre statements such as “We are examining the torture of students" and “This is genocide in America.”

According to a report that first appeared in the LA Times, a campus police officer positively identified Loughner in the video from a few seconds during which Loughner's reflection is visible on the doors of the Pima Community College library.  The video ends with the narrator saying "this is Jared of Pima College."

A suspension letter was delivered to Loughner’s home by Pima Community College campus police within hours of seeing the video online.

Since being released to the LA Times on Friday, the video has reemerged on YouTube and is embedded below.
