As I watched the news about the shooting in Tucson, I wondered why Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik was the spokesman when he seemed unprepared for any questions. I soon got my answer. I was in disbelief as the sheriff on national TV told the nation Arizona is full of hate-filled racist people and talk radio and TV were to blame.
Are you kidding me? This guy used this tragedy for a soap box for his personal agenda. Unfortunately, as I switched through stations I found the same true on a few stations, blaming the conservatives not the shooter. How can we trust a sheriff or news organizations when they show such extreme bias?
The hypocrisy of spewing hate-filled talk toward other groups because you feel they do the same... It's like a dog chasing its tail. Where does it end? It's time we stop pointing fingers at everyone else and take a look at ourselves. To quote one book the shooter said he hated, "Why do you worry about the speck in your neighbor's eye when you have a plank in your own?"
