Then can we EXPECT Sheriff Dupnik to take the blame if any Conservatives are attacked? certainly blaming Conservatives for the Arizona shootings is a very serious charge isn’t it? Might that not, at least if we apply Dupnik’s warped logic, lead to attacks on Tea Party members? Or Sarah palin, or, Rush Limbaugh? Oh wait, it might have already done so.
After blaming the tea party for the mass slaughter on Saturday one tea party leader is receiving death threats. The sheriff’s office told Tucson tea party leader Trent Humphries to stay home.The Tuscon Tea Party leader started receiving death threats since the shootings at the Safeway on Saturday.
Talking Points Memo reported, via Free Republic:
Trent Humphries, the leader of the largest tea party group in this mourning southern Arizona city, has nothing but praise for the way President Obama has led the nation through the aftermath of Saturday’s mass shooting at a constituent event for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ). But Humphries won’t be there tonight when Obama speaks at a memorial rally intended to unify Tucson after six people were killed in the tragedy.
Humphries says he’s been getting threats at his home from people who seem to hold him and his organization partially responsible for the shootings Saturday.
Humphries told TPM he’s called the Sheriff’s department more than once in the past few days to make them aware of threatening phone calls.
“We got a not-so-veiled threat,” Humprhies told me. “The Sheriff’s deputies told me to stay away from public places.”
Now, I do not blame the sheriffs words, no matter how baseless and stupid they are, for these threats. The threats are from losers, who have little minds full of lots of hatred. BUT, Sheriff, IF you are going to apply blame for the shootings in Arizona, then maybe YOU ought to be consistent? Just sayin……….
Or maybe the sheriff is trying to shift blame because he failed to do his job?
Sheriff’s Department and community-college officials in Pima County are refusing to release a wide range of public documents about the man charged in Saturday’s shooting rampage that left six dead and more than a dozen wounded.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department and Pima Community College have declined to release documents that could shed light on run-ins they had with 22-year-old Jared Loughner in the months prior to the shooting. . . .
The school officials assertion that an FBI inquiry prevents them from releasing this information is transparently invalid.
The school official’s assertion that an FBI inquiry prevents them from releasing this information is transparently invalid. And if the FBI has indeed asked officials to suppress the information, this is absolutely unacceptable.
Six people are dead, among them a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl, while a U.S. Congresswoman and 11 other people are grievously injured. There can be no “privilege” to shield government officials from scrutiny for their apparent mishandling of previous criminal behavior by the suspect in this case, given that protecting the lives of its citizens is the first duty of government.
Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has not merely failed at that duty but, in attempting to shift the blame to others, has disgraced his office, covered his department in shame, and embarrassed his community. Michelle Malkin is rightfully indignant at the ongoing farce of The Worst Sheriff in America:
Despite continued revelations from Loughner’s friends about his nihilist, Nietzschean nuttiness, Sheriff Dupnik is clinging to his Climate of Hate blame game — embarrassing his fellow lawmen, Arizona’s largest newspaper, and the rest of decent America with every new baseless utterance aimed at suppressing conservatives’ political free speech.
Much more at the link, and also consider that the sheriff has, in the past allowed his political leanings to cause him to, shall we say NOT ENFORCE LAWS!
Is it any wonder he blames Teabaggerzz/FOX/Palin/Beck/Limbaugh/Right Wing etc for Jared Loughner’s murderous rampage?
5/01/10.... “We are not immigration officials,” Dupnick vowed Thursday. “We fight crime. The state put us in this position.”[...] Dupnick said he never joined the contentious debate over the controversial bill because he didn’t expect Gov. Jan Brewer or state legislators to approve it.
“This law, it’s just irresponsible,” he said. “It makes them [legislators] look like racists.
Well, well, well. it seem s Dupnik has so9me explaining to do doesn’t it?
