Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik Blames Arizona’s “Prejudice & Bigotry” for Shooting of U.S. Rep Giffords by Jared Lee Loughner
Um, gee Sheriff Dupnik, who is fanning the divisive flames?
How disgusting and low must one be than to co-opt a tragedy for your own political gain? Even during President Obama speech (VIDEO) this afternoon, he called for people to come together, support each other and pray for Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims and their families, even if Obama said, “Gabby was a friend of mine”. I think he meant “is”. It is too bad Sheriff Clarence Dupnik could not do so.
During tonight’s police press conference regarding the shooting of U.S. Rep Gabrielle Giffords and others at a Tucson grocery and shooter Jared Loughner, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik made a simply rotten comment. Dupnik blamed Arizona’s “prejudice, bigotry and vitriol” for the shooting. Far be it a crazed, loner, pot smoking loser that be held responsible for his actions.
Isn’t this something. These comment come from the same individual, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who called the Arizona Immigration law unwise, stupid and racist and said he would not enforce it. No agenda here, is there by Sherif Dupnik rather than focusing on those killed and wounded by the gunman.

Comments from Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik via the AP:
“But again I’d just like to say that when you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain people’s mouths about tearing down the government, the anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous. And, unfortunately, Arizona I believe has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry.”
According to all reports, the suspect Jared Lee Loughner has not cooperated with police or provided a motive as to why he went on a shooting spree. So what mind reading capabilities does Sheriff Clarence Dupnik possess? So all crimes in Arizona are the cause of prejudice and bigotry? Or is it only one’s that fit his liberal agenda? How is it on the very day that America, namely Arizona is traumatized by this mass murder shooting, that the Sheriff in charge blames Arizona for their “prejudice and bigotry”? How sensitive of Sheriff Clarence Dupnik.
Seriously Dupnik, why don’t you just man up and blame AZ governor Jan Brewer, Sarah Palin, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hanity, Glenn Beck and the Tea party for the murders. Because Heaven ford you actually find a crazed, pot smoking, Communist Manifesto reading lunatic responsible for his actions.
