How do Tucson residents view the Sheriff's remarks? While this is a horrible tragedy, I felt his comments were not appropriate and irresponsible to label our community as being the mecca for bigotry. I don't agree with that and was disappointed to see one of our leaders make that comment. However, how did Tucson residents receive his remarks? Arizona is now being discussed as a mecca for bigotry and hate in large part due to the Sheriff's comments which I feel don't serve this community well when in reality this incident had little if anything to do with bigotry but the tragic actions of a mentally disturbed individual. Why should the entire community be held responsible for one madman's actions? If anything, I saw our community come together during and after this incident whether we are talking about the heroic efforts by members to tackle the man and risk their lives or the intern who remained with her to the doctors, nurses and hospital staff who reacted quickly to the members who appeared at the vigil.

Yep, part of the old fool network which permeates the city & county.

Nothing like added negative publicity for Tucson.

Maybe it was "knee jerk reaction" and perhaps in his frustration/anger didn't realize just how it sounded, isen't it possible he was upset that such a thing could happen in his town, to the people he loved and admired

Not very likely PollyPage . . .

Sheriff Dupnik is known for his ridiculous "off the wall" public comments.

Sheriff Dupnik has been pulling stunts like this for many years, that's why many of HIS people don't like to see him get in front of a Microphone. Quite simply though the people keep re-electing him mainly because of the (D) behind his name.

Dupnik was right on. It's funny how closely the other people here have duplicated Garet Lewis talking points this morning on KNST. It's too bad some people don't know what they think until clear channel tells them.
