Just finished watched Sheriff Dupnik on Fox News. This guy is serious trouble. Please inform yourselves, freepers, and please--if you're from Pima County, contribute your insights.
The moment he started talking, he oozed self-righteousness and pomposity. He kept alluding to "vitriol"--a code word the Progs use to talk about talk radio and conservatives.
Was there a report early on about LE saying the shooter had been in Afghanistan? I wonder if this guy was somehow involved in spreading that rumor.
And I wonder how Linda Lopez came up with that rumor so soon. Seemed like she was spouting that nonsense before LE were saying anything - even before an identity had been given, IIRC.
It just seems too convenient, that the guy would lie on his web page and then before the identity of the guy is even known, Linda Lopez is repeating the lie that was on his web page.
It’s never gonna happen because the FBI is a political joke about as bad as this sheriff, but somebody should find out what connections there may have been between the shooter, Linda Lopez, and Clarence Dupnik. Who knew what and when?
That’s whatt will come out of this mess: another push for gun control and an effort by Obama to force net ID’s.
"Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik on SB 1070 ruling"
ODONNELL: As promised, we are joined now by Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who has served as the sheriff of Pima County, Arizona, for over 30 years.
Sheriff, the last time you joined us on COUNTDOWN back in April, you pointed out that even before this law was passed, officers in your state had the authorityalready had the authorityto stop and detain people who they believe are illegal immigrants and turn them over to the Border Patrol. As of midnight tonight, with whats left of this law, what changes for your deputy sheriffs when we get to 12:01 a.m.?
SHERIFF CLARENCE DUPNIK, PIMA COUNTY, ARIZONA: Nothing is going to change. As a matter of fact, for the last couple of months, scores of lawyers have been poring over this piece of legislation and just a few days ago told us that even if the law was implemented, that we dont have to enforce it if we enforce the federal law. The state law doesnt give officers anymore authority than the federal law.
And we have been enforcing the federal law in greater volume than any other law enforcement agency in this state, without having the subject the local system to being overwhelmed, throwing them into a crisis, and sending the taxpayers a huge bill and then turning them over to the Border Patrol or ICE. You know, what sense did that make? You have to wonder, what motivated this law?
ODONNELL: Judge Susan Bolton said the law would require police officers to do many more checks, and not only increasing your burden, but very specificallyadding to the burden and budget priorities of the federal government. Was she right about that?
DUPNIK: Shes absolutely right about that.
ODONNELL: And is that one of the grounds on which she struck this? That the state of Arizona cannot impose burdens on the federal government and reorder their budget priorities and their enforcement priorities?
DUPNIK: I think so. I think the primary issue here was the United States Constitution. And I think President Obama or any other president of the country has a responsibility to protect the U.S. Constitution. If he hadnt stepped in and this hadnt happened, we would have had 50 immigration policies in this country, probably before the year is out.
ODONNELL: Is there anything that you would suggest be written into Arizona law in this territory?
DUPNIK: Not at all. The feds have a perfectly good law. The problem is, is that theres not enough resources allocated to the problem to implement it the way it ought to be implemented.
You know, we hear politicians, especially in Arizona, saying that Arizona had to implement this new tough lawwhich isnt tough at all, it was mirroring the federal lawbecause the U.S. government wasnt doing enough about border security. First of all, this law has nothing to do with border security at all. So thats nonsense.
The second part of this is that the United States government does more today than they did last year, the year before, or any year in the past. The fact of the matter is, border security is a very, very serious problem and I dont think that were ever going to have the border secured to anybodys satisfaction.
I think the first debate needs to be done, what constitutes border security? Because were not going to get there, were not going to be able to deal with the border reformation, which we need badly, until we agree on what constitutes a secure border.
ODONNELL: Now, your governor, in running for re-election, has already put out a fund-raising plea based on the courts reversal of this law.
Youre out there dealing with the citizens and voters of Arizona on the street level. What is your feeling among the voters of Arizona about their perception of this issue? Do they see it as something that need to be done for law enforcement reasons or something that is more of a political football and a re-election maneuver on the governors part?
DUPNIK: Well, based on the people that I talked to that are angry with me, because of the statements that Ive made about the law, dont understand the law. And I think the country in its entirety simply doesnt understand why this law is totally unnecessary and would have just been burdensome and expensive.
First of all, officers, not only in our state, but in every other state in the union, have the authority to detain illegal immigrants and turn them over to ICE or the Border Patrol.
ODONNELL: Sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Pima County, Arizonamany thanks for your time tonight, Sheriff.
DUPNIK: Thank you.

Just call him Chief Moose.

Right now, I would be interested to see the smart response from Republicans. If I was John Boehner, I would be in Arizona. As a speaker of the house, he needs to be there and meet the family before Obama goes to Arizona and gives a big speech to change the topic of the nations. Next 24 hrs is crucial till Glenn Beck and Rush come to air on Monday
Sounds to me like this is a Sheriff who should be removed from HIS position immediately.
Ask the average Navy Captain what happens should the ship under his command go aground.
As someone on Twitter noted, Dupnik is the Buford T. Justice of Arizona.
They are worse than vultures.
Dear God, they are awful. Am sure Nancy and Harry and Obama, privately lamenting that this did not happen before election. . .while pleased, now, at least and no doubt; that they have a 'better late than never' event to energize their efforts which is to destroy their opposition and 'our' Country.
“Why is no one pointing out these murders happened under Sheriff Dupniks watch?”
What was the response time to arrive to the site of the incident?
He’s been the Pima County Sheriff since 1980. He is all politician, and a zero on law enforcement. He is the intestinal bacteria of the Democrat machine in Tucson.
But then, DUpnik goes on MSDNC shows with Lawrence O'Donnell and Keith Olbermann--a guy who regularly calls folks "The Worst Person in the World." If that's not "vitriolic," what is?
We're looking for prevention rather than how fast the evidence is collected and the report written. See history of Navy Captains involved in groundings/collisions.
>> Most unprofessional and inappropriate comments. I hope this gets him fired next election.
If Im not mistaken, there was a Sheriff, possibly this one, that lambasted Brewers recent legislation focused on illegal immigration.

You are correct, sir.
"The state's sweeping immigration law is a "national embarrassment" that Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said he'll enforce only if he's forced to.
"This law is unwise. This law is stupid, and it's racist," Dupnik said Wednesday. "It's a national embarrassment.
If I were a Hispanic person in the state, I would be humiliated and angered."

The Sheriff may have thought he was on point but when a federal judge "happens" to end up assassinated the big dogs on on the ground pretty fast.
The Left made a major mistake deciding to politicize this in their self-induced panic so early into the story. That move left them wide open for an otherwise inappropriate counter-attack, and the facts about this kid, his alcohol poisoning and his burning flag, don't say "patriot."
I don't think anyone of sound mind needs to lose any sleep over the "back lash."
