According to Tucson Blogger, Jared Loughner Is A Product Of Sheriff Dupnik’s Office
Eyeblast TV / The Blast ( Media Research Center) ^ | 1/10/2011 | Joe Schoffstall

Posted on 01/10/2011 1:10:51 PM PST by blog.Eyeblast.tv

James Kelley, who blogs at The Cholla Jumps, recently published a post titled “Jared Loughner is a product of Sheriff Dupnik’s office” which consists of some pretty damaging information if found to be true.

It reads:

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 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.

I think this whole incident is about to go down the MSM memory hole, never to be spoken of again.

They hit hard, get what they can get...and pretend like nothing ever happened....and wait for the next ‘useable event’.

The truth is completely irrelevant .

Had the shooter been prosecuted on his drug arrest, it would have shown up on the FBI files and he wouldn’t have been able to buy the pistol. However, since his mama got him off (what part did Dupnick play in that?), there was no charge listed and the rest is a sad history.

The blogger responded and said that his “source” was within the Pima County Sheriff’s dept. No name though.

Please tell me you aren't that naive???? So if you make something illegal, they aren't going to go out and do it anyways?? Like buying the gun from some low life in an alley?? Lord knows it looks like this kid would never break any laws like say killing 6 people in a crowd.

I heard Sheriff Dupnik’s press conference and I personally thought he disgraced himself and the State of Arizona. I would think that if he were any sheriff at all he would have know about Loungner for some time. If Arizona is in his opinion, touch hole he says it is, he would have had a deputy or two at the Congresswoman's Giffords’ event.

Dupnick is a piker.

words have consequences

Yes, and actions have consequences. The T-Party is a response to the "unconstitutional un-American" actions of the Obaministas.

Bear in mind, the T-Party is not top down. It is not driven by retoric. It is driven by a common bond that made this nation. Not eminating from DC, but from the People of the nation. Not from the "elected leaders", but from the electors.

He should have put a gag order on himself. I will henceforth refer to him as “Dupe” because that it is him to the max.

He does not speak very well,and in my experience he may be the typical Chief that is afflicted with Demon Rum disease.

He is a disgrace, and incompetent to lead. I do not know of any Mayor,City Manager,or Commission or council that would keep this rubber lipped embarrassment in charge of anything.

I think this goes a little bit deeper than this.

It is very possible, even probable, that one of the people this guy recently threatened was Gabrielle Gifford or her staff.

This would explain why someone in Gifford's name subscribed to one of the shooters web pages several weeks ago. The only other subscription Gifford's had was to Congressman Ike Skelton.

There is going to be a can of worms opened up on this one for sure, and the tragedy of this that at some point it will be obvious that it could and should have been prevented if the Tucson Law enforcement had done it's job properly. They had plenty of warning about this guy and they were negligent in protecting the public from a dangerous, mentally unstable individual

Rush pointed out that Dupnik’s rant all but made a case for the defense.

If this case doesn’t at least see the perp swallowed up by the AZ/Fed. system for the next 90 years, Dupnik should be impeached.

I wonder if the Sheriff put County-Employee Backscratching ahead of the public safety interests.

I wouldn't be surprised if everything you've said here is true. In fact, I'd venture to guess that this sort of thing is much more common than you'd ever want to know -- and part of it is because even people in law enforcement find it much easier to live in a state of denial than deal with a problem.

A few years ago there was a series of incidents in a small, wealthy town not far from where I live. They involved a small financial services company that had an outstanding reputation and was getting lots of attention even though they had only been in business for less than a year.

Within less than a month after this business received a "Business of the Month" award from a prominent local civic group, the owner was caught trying to destroy records and burn his building down. The police arrived at the scene and took him into custody, and he apparently went ape-sh!t in the police station and had additional charges filed against him. It turns out his business was all a huge smoke-and-mirrors game, and that was just the beginning.

Within several weeks of his arrest there was a long list of additional charges that had piled up against him -- including multiple cases of passing bad checks at several businesses around town. Several days before the arson incident he was arrested by the local police for "stealing" his own car (he had brought it to a local service station for some repairs, then came back in the middle of the night with another set of keys and drove it away without paying for the work). Stories began to pop up in the local newspaper about a restraining order related to several incidents with an ex-girlfriend, along with several violent incidents at his parents' home with his own family members.

All of these incidents occurred before he received his "Business of the Month" award, and were well-known to most people around that town. The police, in fact, knew to deal with him very carefully when he was arrested on the other charges because they knew of his history.

In a real twist of irony, the local prosecutor ended up dropping nearly all of the charges against him related to the arson case, the bad checks, the "theft" of his own car, and all that. He ended up copping a plea to various embezzlement charges that were brought against him by his former clients, and they figured his sentences would have run concurrently anyway if they pursued the other charges against him.

If you talk to anyone in that town today (just a couple of years later), they'll pretend they never heard of the guy and they'll pretend that business never existed.

It's amazing just how pathological even "normal" people can be when they refuse to face reality.

Not true. I think there is serious action (and liability) against Pima Co. Sherrif’s Dept, and don’t forget some in AZ LEO have a lot of evidence....

Given this monster’s press release which I read, having missed it, I thought the same thing.

I mean, when the _res__ent himself orders lawsuits against the State of Arizona, wouldn’t any two-bit criminal installed in law enforcement take this as green light?

Tucson government scene is quite liberal and pretty tight knit so it’s very probable. Or at least friend of a friend.

For sure this was no Tea Party family. You don’t get the kind of position momma has in Tucson spotted owlville unless you are the kind of person who has Raul Grijalva on speed dial on your sell phone.

I suspect that when all is said and one, it’s going to come out that this guy’s family is politically active and connected on the left, perhaps even on the hard, far left.

Correctamundo - the good Sheriff is by far the most conservative and rational member of the Pima County political scene in comparison to the norm.

Tucson politics are strange even by California standards, probably because the stakes are (usually) so low.

Congress always holds hearing after an event such as this. This time, republicans will be in charge of the hearings and will control the agenda. The sheriff might not be protected.

And their son acted on his perceived ‘projections’ of what needs to be done, per their branwashing him. I mean, really. 22-year-olds have no idea who Pelosi is.

This makes total sense. Keep the kid out of asylums, allow him to terrorize the community college such that his schoolmates are keeping seats close to the door out of fear, but have him on the Pima County Sheriff’s ‘do not arrest’ list.

It’s all in the family until... a Federak judge gets whacked.

All the above could be explained as all politics is local.. until Judge Roll.

That’s a lawsuit that needs to be filed. Those documents need to be secured by subpoena. Those people are victims of a state, a sheriff’s office, that is more interested in taxing speeders than protecting women, children and the elderly from violent psychopaths, both foreign and domestic.

I found some old news articles in the news.google.com archives from a few years ago and at that time Amy Loughner was said to be a park manager.

You really think a park manager has that kind of political pull???

Not “political pull,” but a level of buddy-buddy collegiality that says, “Give a fellow local govt employee the benefit of the doubt. Amy is good people. She says she has her son under control, that's good enough for me.”

A park manager is where ‘cousin Jeffreyy’ get a job in the parks department and does not have to do anything all day

She hires your nephew, you return favors for her.

Typical county politics. When I worked for a local county I quit in disgust and they replaced me with a guy from the parks depart ment. He was literally mowing lawns on Friday and programming computers on Monday (I had to show him how to turn on the computer)

VERY interesting!!

It occurs to me, too, that potentially, she could find part-time summer jobs for college aged children of her colleagues.

I am.... very surprised that only today, TUESDAY, many days after the massacre, that we are learning that Jared is employed at Eddie Bauer's as a retail sales clerk.

WHERE has the press been????

WFTS Main: Tucson suspect worked at animal shelter

http://togo.abcactionnews.com/w/main/story/18256615/

I> "...The 22-year-old suspect in the Tucson shooting of U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others was once a volunteer for the Pima Animal Care Center.A dog walker for the animal care center between January and February of 2010, Jared Lee Loughner explained on his application that he wanted the job for fun - and experience....

"...Loughner also wrote on the Pima Animal Care Center application that he once worked as a sales representative at Eddie Bauer. The ABC15 Investigators contacted Eddie Bauer locations in Tucson; both stores would not comment...."

Psycho with a 'killer smile' - m.NYPOST.com

http://m.nypost.com/p/news/national/psycho_with_killer_smile_GfrbSwStw26i3uaaDCOr8J

....One high-school pal said that in the past few months, Loughner, who sold clothes at Eddie Bauer, had become suicidal and grew increasingly introverted, believing his friends were plotting against him......

...Loughner also volunteered at the Pima County Animal Care Center to walk dogs last year, but was asked to leave after he kept walking the animals near a contaminated area, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Despite this, Gutierrez, 22, said, Loughner was "the best role model" for his friends, because he was very organized, physically fit, dressed well and held a steady job....

Depends on what kind of parks they have in Pima County. It's more than 7 times as large as Rhode Island for one thing so there's plenty of room for "stuff". There's 5 casinos, two Indian tribes, and one of them has a recurring problem getting federal interest in helping them keep illegal aliens from trekking through their reservation.

A "park manager" could very well have a couple of mountainranges and 50 gold or silver mines under her belt, plus teams of horses and caches of weapons for the narcotrafficantes, and even major underground tunnels bringing in dope.

The possibilities are endless.

Think "James Bond" but without the Everglades or Mediterranean as a backdrop.

In county government the corruption is more apparent to anyone willing to look.

At the State and Federal level it is too big in scope to connect all the dots, sometimes.

And in the local town or village it would be too easily noticed.

But at the county there are maybe a couple of hundred people who control everything, and they each hire each others kids and nephews and hire contractors of each others businesses... and it is hard to notice until something like this happens.

Then you see the ‘parks department’ leader has been getting a pass for her psycho kid for years, because they don't wanna cause any trouble (in the system)

If I know the type mommy is a paper-pushing backstabbing weasel more adept at low-level politics than anything else. Thats part of how her kids gets away with everything and thinks he is immune. If you give her crapola the next thing you know the local sheriff is inspecting your car or stopping you for speeding every place you go...
