Good Grief.  If somebody does not stop this left wing hatred…..

Sheriff Duprik to the rescue?

Yesterday, this Eric Fuller had become another media star, blaming Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and Sharron Angle for the Tucson shooting.  This morning he is arrested for making death threats at a so-called town meeting held by Christiane Amanpour, ABC News.  Fuller is threatening a republican participant, and a tea party person.  He held up a picture of one of them after writing “You’re Dead” on it.  He is a survivor of the massacre, though with minor wounds.  What a way to show your thankfulness for escaping death.

This is supposed to air tomorrow morning, I think, on ABC.  Do you think they will CUT this part?  They might leave it in if they can figure out a way to make it look like he is a Tea Party person.

Here’s the report:

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -The meeting room at St. Odilia’s Catholic Church on the city’s northwest side was packed with local dignitaries, witnesses to the mass shooting Jan. 8, some of the witnesses to the shootings and the first responders to the scene for a taping of an ABC-TV special, a town hall event, at 11 a.m. Saturday. Host of the program, This Week, is Christiane Amanpour. The show will air at 7 a.m. Sunday on KGUN9-TV.

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head at close range last Saturday by a lone gunman. She survived. A total of six people were killed. Nineteen were shot.

Jared Loughner, 22, a former Pima Community College student, is the sole suspect in the shootings. He is in FBI custody.

Toward the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.”

Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.

Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said later Saturday that Fuller has been charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.

Among the dignitaries at the town hall taping were Mayor Bob Walkup, U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and former Congressman Jim Kolbe.

ABC News dubbed the town hall, “After the Tragedy:  An American Conversation Continued.”

A press release stated that the event will restart the conversation that Giffords began.  “Among those who will join the Town Hall: family members of victims, citizens who took heroic action and community leaders,” the press release stated.

A KGUN9 News crew was at the town hall. KGUN9 will air a report on KGUN9 News Saturday at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Saturday’s  10 p.m. newscast will be a one hour 9 On Your Side special report entitled, “One Week Later.”

Here’s an eye witness account:

Trent Humphries, the Pima County tea party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts. Trent then told everyone that one of those killed during the shooting was his neighbor and that he was affected like everyone else by the tragedy… While Trent was speaking- And it was planned that he would speak- One member in the audience and reportedly one of the victims of the tragedy started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” The police immediately escorted him out. On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”
