The Dupnik Cover-Up — He Knew About Loughner?


Isn’t this interesting.

A reader has brought to us the link to a site mentioned by Rush Limbaugh on today’s show. The site, The Cholla Jumps, seems to be familiar with the good sheriff.

The site says this:

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 [Sheriff Dupnik’s] 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.

So what we may have here is a blustering liberal sheriff who dropped the ball — with 20 people now shot, a congresswoman barely escaping death, a federal judge and a nine-year old little girl among the dead.

Because the sheriff is incompetent.

No wonder he’s blaming talk radio, Rush Limbaugh specifically — and Fox.

Because apparently, according to the Cholla Jumps, Sheriff Dupnik has a very, very big problem.

To wit: His office knew about Loughner — they KNEW — and told the victims of these threats that Loughner was “being well managed by the mental health system.”

In a word: Wow.

Absolutely appalling.

Why is he still in this job?
