Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik Faces Recall Bid Due to Bias Politcizing the Tucson, AZ Shooting
Do actions really have consequences in Tucson, AZ?
Will there be ramifications for Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik’s outspoken and inappropriate comments follwoing the Tucson, AZ shooting? Following the mass shooting that left 6 dead and 13 wounded including US Rep Gabby Giffords (AZ-D), Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik was quick to blame heated political rhetoric,prejudice & bigoty, and talk radio for the shooting.
The only problem was that there was no evidence pointing in that direction. Instead, Dupnik went on TV interview after TV interview providing only opinion. Hardly what is expected from a law enforcement officer.
Because of his actions, a group has begaun efforts to recall the sheriff in a special election. Although Dupnik is in a heavily Democrat district, all people really need to take a look at what the sheriff did and ask themselves whether they deem this appropriate of LE. Should a sheriff politicize a crime, instead of providing the facts of the case?
Shooting Victim Eric Fuller Apologizes for “You are Dead” Threat to Tea Party Leader Trent Humphries
63 year old Eric Fuller, the Tucson, AZ shooting victim who was arrested for make a death threat against tea party leader Trent Humphries has apologized for his comments. Fuller was taken into custody following the taping of ABC’s town hall event, “An American Conversation Continued” after Fuller said to Humphries … “you are dead”. Fuller was involuntarily committed to a county mental health facility following his death threat,
Dorothy DeRuyter, a companion of Fuller’s, provided CNN with a statement.
“I would like to tender my sincerest apologies to Mr. (Trent) Humphries for my misplaced outrage on Saturday at the St. Odelia’s town meeting,” Fuller said in the statement. “It was not in the spirit of our allegiance and warm feelings to each other as citizens of our great country.”
Dorothy DeRuyter went on to say that Fuller “is apologetic and very sad” about his outburst, he wishes he could go back and do things differently.” I am sure he does; however, making a death threat following the Tucson tragedy allegedly at the hands of Jared Loughner that left 6 dead was hardly the words one would want to use to further to discussion.

The Momma Grizzly responds …
During an interview last night on Fox News, Sarah Palin stated to Sean Hannity that despite the constant attacks by Democrats and the liberal MSM, “I am not going to shut up.” Those who respectfully and rightfully petition their government for change cannot make us sit down or shut up. Getting rid of respectful dissent would destroy our Republic. You do not use a tragedy to try and stifle political debate.
Those of you on the LEFT might want to listen to her words. A stifling of free speech might just be one days be yours as well. The full interview can be seen at Sean Hannity.
Yet Another Poll that States that Sarah Palin’s Cross-Hairs & Political Rhetoric Had Little to Do with Tucson Shooting
CNN has yet out another poll looking for blame in the Tucson, AZ shooting tragedy that left 6 dead and 14 wounded. However, once again those polled do not find Sarah Palin’s bulls-eye map or political rhetoric to blame. Previous polls from CBS and Quinnipiac University confirm the same, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Fox News had little to do with Jared Loughner’s evil acts.
“But while a large majority predict that tragedy in Tucson will lead to more civility in political debates, only one in ten think that change will be permanent,” adds Holland. “Seven in ten say politicians will tone it down in the short run but the change won’t last very long, and 18 percent think there will be no change at all.”
Seven out of ten blame the resources available to deal with people who may be mentally ill as a contributing factor to the shooting.
According to the poll, the public doesn’t blame Sarah Palin’s website for the incident in Arizona. Only a third of all Americans say that the website – which had an image that looked like the crosshairs of a gun marking Gifford’s congressional district – deserves a great deal or a moderate amount of blame. The former Alaska governor put the website up last year during the debate over health care reform, to highlight 20 congressional districts won by Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential election, where Democratic representatives were voting in favor of the legislation.

More from Weasel Zippers and the 35% of loons who continue to have PDS and believe all that has been disproved and the fact that there is zero evidence that Loughner had ever seen Palin’s bullseye map. Even more pathetic, 56% of Democrats believe the bulls-eye map myth. How is there supposed to be this so-called change in political discourse if more than one 1/2 of a party polled lives in an alternate universe and is so consumed with hate and Palin Derangement Syndrome, that they will believe all that has been disproved? But when you have a MSM and Pima County Sheriff with an agenda from minute one disseminating false information and their own opinions in place of facts …
