Jared Loughner is a product of Sheriff Dupnikís office
The Cholla Jumps ^ | 9 January 2011 | thechollajumps

Posted on 01/10/2011 9:30:01 AM PST by Lloyd227

This is the report that Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has been dreading since the tragic event on Saturday January 8.

The sheriff has been editorializing and politicizing the event since he took the podium to report on the incident. His blaming of radio personalities and bloggers is a pre-emptive strike because Mr. Dupnik knows this tragedy lays at his feet and his office. Six people died on his watch and he could have prevented it. He needs to step up and start apologizing to the families of the victims instead of spinning this event to serve his own political agenda.

Jared Loughner, pronounced by the Sheriff as Lock-ner, saying it was the Polish pronunciation. Of course he meant Scott or Irish but that isn’t the point. The point is he and his office have had previous contact with the alleged assailant in the past and that is how he knows how to pronounce the name.

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. It was also suggested that further pressing of charges would be unnecessary and probably cause more problems than it solved as Jared Loughner has a family member that works for Pima County. Amy Loughner is a Natural Resource specialist for the Pima County Parks and Recreation. My sympathies and my heart goes out to her and the rest of Mr. Loughner’s family. This tragedy must be tearing them up inside wondering if they had done the right things in trying to manage Jared’s obvious mental instability.

Every victim of his threats previously must also be wondering if this tragedy could have been prevented if they had been more aggressive in pursuing charges against Mr. Loughner. Perhaps with a felony conviction he would never have been able to lawfully by the Glock 9mm Model 19 that he used to strike down the lives of six people and decimate 14 more.

This was not an act of politics. This was an act of a mentally disturbed young man hell bent on getting his 15 minutes of infamy. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department was aware of his violent nature and they failed to act appropriately. This tragedy leads right back to Sherriff Dupnik and all the spin in the world is not going to change that fact.

The more I hear about Dupe-nik, the more I see he is a complete imbecile. This incompetent moonbat should indeed be removed from office.

Spot on. I discussed this very thing with my significant other just last night.

I also believe he’s trying to cover his arse because the response to the shooting was so slow. Aren’t they saying it took 15 minutes or more for anyone, rescue or law enforcement, to arrive?

Bingo. I predict this sheriff will become a big part of the story in the out months, and will be shown to be negligent at best, and most likely incompetent (and will retire). He’s probably also the source of the initial erroneous reports of the congresswoman’s death.

I also think he’s a stupid old fool. That’s “free speech” right there ;-)

This sounds pretty devastating. I hope that someone in the media picks this up and verifies it. I don’t expect Keith Olberman to be the person who verifies it, but I would like to see someone confirm the facts.

I dunno about that...some Tucson FReeper yesterday pointed out that he’s been Sheriff for over 30 years and is as well entrenched politically as a Kennedy in Massachusetts.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnic and his staff were just extending a little professional courtesy to another Pima County employee. Now with six dead and what?, 10-15 wounded, there must be some misdirection for the press. This will divert attention away from the Sheriff & members of his staff that are responsible for NOT following the law and or procedure.

He threatened on MySpace in December to kill police officers. Why wasn’t he taken into custody?

The sheriff himself admitted the suspect had made threats that he was aware of.

I also have not yet figured out where all the local leo's were who typically provide security for meet-n-greet events for politicians?

Where was the detail? Was one provided? Was one paid for?

He should change his last name to “Dupka.”

Go to Google Translate and translate from Polish to English.

""""The Pima County Sheriff’s Department was aware of his violent nature and they failed to act appropriately. This tragedy leads right back to Sherriff Dupnik and all the spin in the world is not going to change that fact.""""

I am having a recollections of the JFK shooting, my first thoght then. LBJ hated JFK, it was LBJ's territory, (Dallas), he controled TEXAS and the political mafia down there, find some NUT WACKO who could be stirred up enough to do the job. Then arrest him, and find some other NUT WACKO to kill Oswald. Then kill that perp, RUBY.

This is like Groundhog Day, all over. Why did Odumbo send the highest ranking FBI down to take charge? HMMMMMMMMM.

Odumbo needs something like this to happen in Arizona, and where better than to find a Sheriff to obey. Very strange happenings for sure.

Then of course he is being mentored in this type of stuff from BILL CLINTON.

Where is the source for this information?

This is major and if it is verified the blood is greatly on his hands....

“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.”

The latest talking point apparently involves Lee Atwater, of all people. I saw a Facebook posting from a liberal/socialist high school classmate who said “Lee Atwater, what hath thou wrought?”

I did a Google search for the last 24 hours and found that references to Lee Atwater (and therefore, by association, to Karl Rove) are starting to pop up on the net. That’s reaching pretty far back to make an association.

Read the comments under the blog post, apparently this blogger - who's a contributing columnist for an Arizona paper and a ceo for a non-profit - has some inside scoop that can't be elaborated any further.

KFYI in Phoenix had this on this morning’s Barry Young show. Terry Gilberg, a host, has spoken to the Blogger. When I read the comments, the Blogger said that the Pima County Sheriff’s dept is the “source”.

I can see a future where the word “dupnik” is cast as a word of derision.

“This job has gone totally dupnik!”

“What are you, a total dupnik?”

“Well, dupnik me!”

I was in Tucson for 6 months this year (for work)

It seemed OK to me. The people I met did not want McLame...so...

either way- This sherrif may be a well connected liberal but he never had dead bodies attributed to his incompetance before.
