Did the Sherriff know about other death threats and do NOTHING?

Jared Loughner has been making death threats by phone to many people in Pima County including staff of Pima Community College, radio personalities and local bloggers. When Pima County Sheriff’s Office was informed, his deputies assured the victims that he was being well managed by the mental health system.

Was Dupnik involved in springing Loughner after one of the murderer’s many arrests??

Did Dupnik help keep Loughner out of the state psych system?

When the sherriff is politicially biased, will we ever know the answers?

    Here’s exactly what the DHS report says:

    suspect’s mother works for the Pima County Board of Supervisors* the suspect has multiple arrests … But no criminal record? Intervention by someone?

  • Hmmmm, the plot thickens. IDK, but I imagine there will be an investigation into it. Perhaps this is why he was so quick to jump on the hate / vitriol bandwagon.

  • Sometimes in closed communities it's just what happens. I don't think playing the blame game's really going to help at this point. However I think if it's found out that he just 'ignored' him that he should be struck off and even get some sort of sentence to seriously show sheriffs that they need to be vigilant.

  • Hmm the right wing media is trying to smear the dem sherriff that spoke from his heart....and point blame on him and not the gun men

    Hmmmmm

    This man had to deal with the aftermath of the right wing death threats and vandalizing due to the health care votes and the partially unconstitutional immigration law....

    And now they are blaming him

    They should take Ailes advice and shut up

  • He should be performing his duty to protect the citizens of his jurisdiction. No reason to not investigate to make sure he is doing his job.

  • More Monday morning QBing.

    "his deputies assured the victims that he was being well managed by the mental health system"

    I am suprised with HIPPA he got that much. If they were told he was under med. care what were they supposed to do. If they are a threat to themselves or others its supposed to be reported.... oh goody someone else to blame.

    .She was quoted somewhere about threats saying she had a 9mm and was a good shot. Are we going to start blaming her because knowing there were threats against her she didn't have security?




    Its the shooters fault and ONLY the shooters fault that this happened.

  • I don't see anyone blaming the sheriff for the shooting. If anything, I think an investigation should take place so that they can revisit their P & P's to make sure they did everything they could (legally speaking). If not, they should make changes to their procedures to make sure they are doing things to the best of their abilities. Same thing that happens when something goes wrong at any work place.

  • I did not appreciate the personal insight he put into the mix. I could really care less what he 'thinks'. I want to know what he knows as an officer of the law. He was speculating on the 'reason' before they had even searched the guy's home and before they had even interviewed him. He just assumed that because the Congresswoman was a dem. that a republican, more specifically a Tea Party member, must have done it. The Tea Party isn't well known for its violence. Can that be said about the dem. protests that happen with all the windows broken and cars overturned at so many of them? He started a snowball that he should be held accountable for. But, when the Ft. Hood shooting happened, we were warned to not rush to judgment and condemn a large group of people. Oh, to be Muslim and get the benefit of the doubt. It must be a wonderful thing.

  • Things that say" did nothing" and" failed to act" sounds like blame to me...... maybe its just me?
