Was Giffords receiving threats? If so,

Why weren't there cops or security at her event?

Wouldn't you think if she was afraid of threats from the past, she would ask for at least one cop or security officer?

  • If the rhetoric was as "hot" as the Sheriff had said, it would have made sense for them to have security detail.... Hines sight....

  • Yes, she received threats, right after her health care vote and after her opposition to the immigration law.


    I think it died down a little and this was something she did regularly......

  • But ohhhh, right the sheriff was wrong... "rhetoric" had nothing to do with the crime he is currently investigating...

    How was the sherriff wrong? Threats were made and someone followed through...


    He had contact with her before.

  • When she was asked about the threats around the health care she said something to the effect of owning a Glock 9mm and being a good shot.

    So no I don't think she took the threats seriously.

  • Using Dupnik's words, what “prejudice, bigotry and vitriol” caused Loughner to kill people?

    Use them in context..he said AZ has become a MECCA OF PREJUDICE BIGOTRY AND VITROL..and how is that false?? Her death threats were related to those things and Judge Roll as well...the REPUBLICAN judge got multiple death threats for ruling in favor of an illegal immigrant case...


    Thats where their DEATH THREATS came from.......it may not have been what ended up killing them, but it IS the reason the vandalizing was going on and the death threats were happeneing

    Then her having/requesting security at her events makes sense...  Even though PREJUDICE BIGOTRY AND VITROL had NOTHING to do with the tragedy that took lives.

    And now the shoe drops as to why he was so fast to place blame! With a reported office break-in, and the reported numerous threats on the body and life of a US Congresswoman, the Police Department with senior jurisdiction was responsible for her safety and the safety of her constituents who gathered to see her. This Sheriff's Office knew her personally, knew of the break-ins and was fully aware of the threats on her life, yet they did not send ONE officer to protect her or the crowd! He needed a scapegoat and he knew he found one with the right wing media. He jeopardized the investigation of a multiple murder and the end prosecution of the murderer so he could cover his ass in his failure to perform his sworn duty to the people of his county to protect and serve!
