The Sheriff of Pima County spoke his piece in a very thoughtful and forceful manner.  Here is a peace officer who has spoken out against the rising belligerence of those among us that are not at all interested in peace! 

   

Especially the rabble rousers that feed this constituency and that feed on it to grow rich.  These hate mongers and merchants of fear set the stage for the bad actors, and then piously deny that they painted the background scenery.    

 

That is what Sheriff Dupnik is telling us.  He is a peace officer that sees clearly the enabling connection between the staging and the acting, even if there is no specific connection to the Tucson tragedy. 

 

But what the heck.  Even if there were a specific connection the rabble would no admit it. 

 

Thank you Sheriff Dupnik for speaking to the vast majority of Americans that understand your message, and agree with it.
