In a short aftermath of the shooting incident in Tucson, Ariz.,Â this morning, one blurb cut through the bullshit.
Pima County sheriff, Clarence W. Dupnik, as quoted by the New York Times:
â€œThe anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous.
And unfortunately, I think Arizona has become sort of the capital, we have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry,â€ he said.
â€œThereâ€™s reason to believe that this individual might have a mental issue, and I think that people who are unbalanced might be especially susceptible to vitriol.â€
Nasty, ugly state of affairs.
Talking Points Memo has a response from Arizona tea-baggers.
Fairly obvious to anyone with any kind of walking-around sense these kinds of incidents will only get worse.
