The debate over political talk and violence may be showing few signs of easing, but a CBS News poll out today finds most Americans–nearly 6 in 10–have concluded the rhetoric didn’t drive the shooter. News Source.
Sheriff Clarence Dupnik’s department was well aware of Jared Loughner’s mental instability and may have been slow to respond to death threats.His fellow lawmen in Arizona are appalled because all of the evidence so far suggests that the gunman is a deeply disturbed individual with no coherent political motives. “I just hope he’s not giving this 22-year-old an alibi by blaming talk radio,” Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told the Los Angeles Times.The truth is slowly coming out. Law enforcement friends of sheriff Dupnik are embarrassed by his uncalled for accusations of Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh.
Mr. Dupnik decided to personalize his comments yesterday when he went after Rush Limbaugh. “[Mr. Limbaugh] attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials,” he said. “And that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without consequences.” He told ABC News that he would like to see the federal government establish a commission to promote civility in the U.S.Sheriff Dupnik Misfires.
