    Outspoken Tucson sheriff faces recall bid

    Outspoken Tucson sheriff faces recall bid

    Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has never lost an election, but that was before his remarks assigning blame for the deadly Tucson, Ariz., shooting to political "vitriol" and calling Arizona "a mecca for prejudice and bigotry."

    Now it's Sheriff Dupnik who finds himself on the public-opinion hot seat. A group opposed to illegal immigration has begun an effort to recall the sheriff in a special election. Meanwhile, a Pima County tea party group is planning on holding a "Dump Dupnik" rally next week outside his office.
    maybe the people enjoy the so called vitriol.
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    As I have already pointed out - the greatest crime anyone can commit against the right wing True Believers is to brand them as such and expose them for what they really are and what their tactics are. So now Sheriff Dupnik has their gun sights focused upon him despite his long and fine record of service to the people. He who dares to raise his voice against what they truly are must be targeted and eliminated as job one.

    You sure know how to twist things.

    The sheriff should loose his job.

    You just don't get it, don't you? He made statements in his role as a public official representing the people of his county that absolutely was unsupportable. His statement was offensive, inaccurate, and reprehensible. If the law in Arizona allows for a recall and the people of the county so desire it, they should go ahead. He and his statement are disgraceful...

    Interesting. Sher'f Dumb**** claimed, before the dead bodies had assumed room temperature, that political discussion, protected by the 1st Amendment was responsible for the shootings and deaths. We know his statements were false, and he knew they were false, yet Sher'f Dumb**** carried on with his inflammatory remarks after everyone with half a brain knew the shooter wasn't politically motivated in the manner Sher'f Dumb**** claimed.

    He doesn't like the fact people challenge this president. We don't like the fact Obama lied, deceived and had the journOlists cover for him. So we are fighting back. That is what you do in a democracy. You don't have to lay there and take it if you don't like it... and the last election illustrated many didn't like being duped.

    Where was Sher'f Dumb**** when Bush was President? When we had a General Betrayus?

    There is one thing about the left... they are consistently inconsistent, and laughably so.

    So now Sheriff Dupnik has their gun sights focused upon him despite his long and fine record of service to the people.
    ROTFLOL... may I suggest you attend a couple weeks sensitivity training! LOL...

    Ugh... Haymarket... the people have the right to recall Sher'f Dumb****. It's in the laws of the state, and it is used to remove idiots when they identify themselves and piss off the electorate.

    He who dares to raise his voice against what they truly are must be targeted and eliminated as job one.
    I would like you to define what we really are. A few points would be nice. You are also assuming only Republicans want Sher'f Dumb**** recalled. There could be Progressives, Moderates, Libs, Communists, Reagan Democrats, RINO's (up to now all forms of Democrats), Libertarians, and Conservatives.

    The guy was a disgusting dolt, too bad he didn't reveal what a Dumb**** he was years ago. Now that he has, people are looking to kick his sorry ass out of office.

    That's how things work in free societies. There are laws allowing idiots to get the hook.

    Public officials are not allowed to voice their opinions? I did not know that.

    Who should decide what he says in public?

    Not in the middle of an investigation. Well in this case it was before the wounded were even out of surgery.
    He immediately started speculating about the motives of the mass murderer when he should have been giving facts.
    He doesn't deserve to be Sheriff.

    Law enforcement officers aren't allowed to give an opinion that could directly effect the outcome of an ongoing case.

    Doopnik's comments could be used in Loughner's defense and win him a far lighter sentence than he deserves.

    Doopnik should be proffessional and experienced enough to know that.

    I suppose we should also remove Jan Brewer as Governor while we are at it for incorrectly stating there were beheadings at the border and refusing to correct herself? Or is that somehow different?
