Tucson shooting victim detained at taping of TV special


#1

A Tucson mass shooting victim was taken into custody Saturday after yelling “you’re dead” at a Tea Party spokesman during the taping of an ABC-TV town hall event hosted by Christianne Amanpour.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Office said J. Eric Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed to an undisclosed medical facility, NBC News reported. The Associated Press said he was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.
He faces charges of threats and intimidation and disorderly conduct, according to Tucson TV station KGUN.

He must be one of those alleged rightwing nuts I hear about on this site.

says he was shot in the back and the knee yet he walked to his car and drove himself to the hospital. REcords? And he’s out in a week? That’s some healing! Was on Democracy Now this past week blaming Palin, Beck, etc saying they got their first target. Says he’s a vet. records? Says he’s a disabled vet. verify? Seems disturbed. Does Dupnik have a file on this guy? Does Mr. Fuller know Mr. Loughner? This has only opened up more questions for investigation. in my opinion.

Mr. Fuller is making the same Mistake that Sheriff Dupnik made. Sometimes its better to just keep your mouth shut and go on about your merry.

Those left wing media types are getting the left wingers all riled up with their hate speech and violent rhetoric.

Maybe we can blame this on Paul Krugman. :eusa_think:

I wonder whether Amanpour and ABC (it happened during the taping of one of their events) allowed this sample of Progressive civil political discourse to be aired.

FWIW, here’s what Politico had to say - and not say - about Fuller:

Tucson shooting victim blames Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Sharron Angle

One of the wounded in the Tucson, Ariz., shooting that left Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically injured is blaming Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy.

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW.
Well, let’s see … Fuller is a D operative (low level) … and Democracy NOW appears to be a standard-issue Progressive media source … one of D-NOW’s leaders is Amy Goodman, former news director for the uber-Progressive Pacifica Radio, who was arrested along with several D-NOW producers for suspicion of inciting riot at the 2008 R Convention (charges are likely to be dropped, BTW) … the other leader of D-NOW is Juan Gonzalez who appears to be a generic Lib/Prog Journo and Hispanic victimology group leader.

Except for the fact that Fuller had been a Giffords campaign worker, I learned all that using Wikipedia. And how much background info on D-NOW did Politico publish in its article? Nothing! Zero! Zip!! Nada!!! Politico leaves readers unfamiliar with D-NOW (like me, except that I smelled a partisan rat) to think D-NOW is just another news organization.

So Fuller has joined with the Prog group D-Now to exploit his victim status for partisan purposes. Were he just his own blood being exploited I guess it would be OK, but he’s also exploiting the blood of all the other victims! And using all those other victims’ blood as trophies supporting his slander!

Looks like Fuller is a bit more than a low-level D operative.

Rebel Rouser comes to mind. :wink:

This is interesting;

Breaking: Tucson Tea Party Leader Threatened At ABC Taping, Audience Member Screams: ‘Trent Humphries You’re Dead!’
by Jim Hoft
Big Government
1/16/11

State Representative Terri Proud was at the event sitting between Trent and the violent audience member. Terri was there to speak about the local gun laws. She described the scene to me just minutes ago:

[quote]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.”

And the media tries to claim that right wingers are a danger to this country.

[/quote]I tried to read that book a couple of times and the author is one narcissistic guy who spends so much time congratulating himself that it is a wonder he did not have a broken arm. He liked to drop names.

Jim Hoft (who posts on First Things blog as “Gateway Pundit” as well as on Big Government) gives an interesting look at the kind of information the MSM saw fit to withhold from their readers, listeners and viewers. Can’t let the conservatives-are-violent narrative be undermined!
