Sad Day in Arizona

Pima County, AZ, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik:

“But again I’d just like to say that when you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain people’s mouths about tearing down the government, the anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous. And, unfortunately, Arizona I believe has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry.”

It’s very unfortunate. But we’re not all that way here…really.

  1. It’s not just Arizona, Candace … it’s all over our country. It’s tragic and sad and I hope it turns around soon.

    My thoughts are with everyone who is suffering.

  2. No, Arizona is not that way at all except for a few people who want it to be. I think everyone in the nation has empathy for Arizona because of the border issues. The feeling around here is that Arizona is a state that at least has a little backbone.

    That was a very sad thing today, and things like it happen far too frequently, but how can it be stopped!

  3. A tragedy that will change the way politicians interface with the public. I don’t think people have the perception of Arizona as a place of bigotry; I think most of the clamor over the border issues are really just a misunderstanding of the issues themselves.

  4. A fine shot through these lines. I don’t think negatively of Arizona at all. I do feel empathy for the border issues that seem to impact so many lives.

  5. A crescendo of vitriol from both sides never leads to solutions. Only sane conversation and action. Words don’t have legs… Arizona is not alone in tragedy.
