TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- A judge has lifted his order that prevented the release of investigation records in the Tucson shooting rampage that killed six people and wounded former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords two years ago.

The order signed Monday by U.S. District Judge Larry Burns and released Tuesday grants a motion by the Arizona Daily Star, a Tucson newspaper.

Burns sealed the records to ensure Jared Loughner's right to a fair trial. But Burns said Loughner's guilty plea ends the need to keep the records sealed.

It's now up to the Pima County Sheriff's Office to respond to media requests for records.

1. IMO, the records were also sealed to hide the fact that there was no place for the college

that let Loughner go , to refer him on to get mental health care assessed and started. His parents told the police that they could find no care for their son even though they had tried too. Arizona, like other states (Texas) closed its county and community referral and care systems so the money could be diverted to the State General Accounting Funds-GAF; about 2003-04. As an example, during this time returning road taxes disappeared from the states as money was being funneled nationally in to blank checks to the war contractors by the Bush Administration. The funneling was so bad that companies like Halliburton had to pay the government back millions of dollars.

Keep in mind that state like Arizona and Texas are regulated by the TEA Party politicians. Mr Loughner was sent to Missouri for care while awaiting trial.
