The following is a letter I just sent snail mail to the hack sheriff that is using the Giffords shooting as a propaganda platform.
The mailing address is on the top if anyone is motivated to do the same.

To Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik
I was very disappointed at your use of the horrible tragedy that unfolded by an extremist left wing murderer on Jan 8th as an opportunity to condemn those who are Conservative in their political philosophy and who respect the U.S. Constitution. I expect Politicians to attempt to further their partisan agenda by using tragedies like this as an excuse to condemn those who hold opposing views. I also know that very few actions can diminish the confidence of citizens in their law enforcement officials more than finding out that they too are more concerned with partisan opportunism than justice and protecting the public. Your comments were not only false but misleading. Your attempt to connect this murderer to those who host or listen to talk radio and/or are sympathetic to the Tea Party movement was bad enough by itself, but your comments also attempted to divert attention from the real ideology of this murderous monster that is still a genuine threat to the citizens you are sworn to protect. If you have become so bitter and jaded that you can no longer present yourself in a manner that is respectful to the concept of Truth and the Rule Of Law or the citizens who trust you to do the job of enforcing the law then you should resign your position and run for office. Citizens already expect the worst from political candidates.
There is simply no reason for you to drag law enforcement into this same sewer when you can simply resign and declare your candidacy for some office where your erroneous claims and distortions are expected.
Whatever points you think you scored with your disrespectful, offensive and false rhetoric will be far outweighed by the hardening of opposition in the hearts of those innocent people that you implicated in this tragedy. Irresponsible people in positions of public leadership are what motivate the public to never trust anything that emanates from you or your partisan brethren. You are a very disappointing example of a Law Enforcement Officer; you have disgraced the entire honorable vocation with your petty agenda of partisan hatred and resentment. Representative Giffords, the other victims of this heinous crime and all the citizens of Pima County as well as the whole United States of America deserve and expect much better.
Shame on you Sheriff Dupnik.
