The Worst Sheriff in America

Pages: 1 2

Locals note that Loughner’s mother worked for the county and may have had some pull. Pima County College campus police reported five serious confrontations with the mentally unstable young man before he was kicked out of the school, which he decried as an unconstitutional “torture facility.” Classmates said they feared for their lives. His friends say he was a pothead, a 9/11 Truther and a UFO conspiracist so kooky that even flying-objects adherents spurned him.

Despite zero evidence that Rush Limbaugh, cable news, the tea party movement or immigration enforcement activists had anything to do with Loughner’s warped attack, shameless Sheriff Dupnik shows no signs of shutting up.

The worst sheriff in America is walking in the footsteps of another infamous law enforcement official who put fame, ambition and ideology above public safety: disgraced Montgomery County (Md.) Police Chief Charles Moose, the publicity-hungry Keystone Cop who grossly bungled the Beltway sniper attacks in 2002.

Like Dupnik, Moose let politically correct assumptions drive his investigation and incessant press conferences. He insisted on hunting the wrong vehicle while the snipers’ Chevy Caprice (spotted by several witnesses and whose license plates had been checked by police at least 10 times during the shooting spree) got away. The hapless Moose clung to the notion that white militants in a nonexistent white box truck were to blame — leading to a string of unnecessary murders as the real shooters escaped capture for several deadly weeks. No matter. Moose cashed in on his notoriety, inked a fat book deal and beat a hasty retreat to Hawaii.

Dupnik is now following the same ill-gotten path. But decent Americans understand that he and his civilian counterparts have traveled a smear too far. Despite desperate attempts by the progressive left to pin the massacre on the “harsh tone” of its political opponents, a vast majority of Americans reject the cynical campaign to criminalize conservatism, suppress political free speech and capitalize on violent crime for electoral gain.

At the risk of being accused of inciting violence, you might say they’ve done gone and shot themselves in the foot.

    Since he disagrees with the laws that are now on the books and won't arrest a person since to him those laws are unjust and racist, how many of the police under his command are doing the same including lismissing laws that they think are wrong? What does that then do to police that are following the laws and arresting law breakers no matter what law is broken? This Sheriff is then disregarding his oath so he must be impeached or fired! There is insubordination in his ranks and he is their leader!

    The Sheriff "doth protest too much!"

    As we learn more about the shooter, I starting to believe that the Sheriff may be engaging in a purposeful deflection to cover for the failure of his agency to deal with a mentally unstable individual. At a minimum, he should have been evaluated for mental illness, which could have resulted in a possible commitment.

    For whatever reason, someone seriously dropped the ball.

    Sheriff Dupnik is going on Keith Olbermann's program tonight to announce he will seek an indictment against Sarah Palin as a co-conspirator, read about it here…

      Sheriff Doucheprick should resign, as he failed to act numerous times against complaints (that are documented) about Loughner and 6 people were killed and 12 wounded on his watch. He is incompetent and too stupid to even suspect that he is stupid!

    HOW did 'this guy' EVER get to be a sheriff?????

  • coyote3

    I never, in my career, heard "any" law enforcement officer speak like this. He shouldn't be making comments one way or the other, especially when they have just apprehended and charged this guy. Is he purposely trying to screw up the jury pool? May he wouldn't have wanted me serving with him, but I can tell you the thought is mutual

    Sheriff Dupnik's boss is the problem now. Why does this loser still have a job?

  • jaythehistorian

    This "dupe" "dufus" should be impeached as sheriff. How can this alleged law enforcement agent show any neutrality in enforcing laws. Only a slimy democrat sheriff would act as if he was so above the law.

    I called the Pima County Sherriff’s NON emergency number and told the nice lady on the other end that I might have a “situation” developing. She asked me to describe the situation and I told her my Mother was listening to Rush Limbaugh and if they could send the SWAT team. The poor exacerbated lady sighed and asked if I wished to register a complaint. I obviously wasn’t the first to make such a call. Obnoxious? Yes. But this minor act of civil disobedience may help officials do the right thing and fire THE WOOORST SHEERRIFFF IN THE WOOOOORLD.

    The State Law in Arizona allows for Recall of this Doofus Politician masquerading as a Law Enforcement Officer. Get out those petitions, Arizona and remove this despicable troll from office.
