Oh I Bet the D.A. is About to go Ballistic About Now

If you ever want to watch a moron dismantle himself on TV, you need but go watch Pima County Sheriff Clarence [is that even a boy’s name?] Barney Fife Dupnik Nudnik’s public self-humiliation over at Patterico’s.

That murdering son-of-a-bitch Loughner’s attorney is going to have a field day with this so-called “law enforcement officer’s” public poisoning of the waters for his client.

Of course, it’s quite understandable that Sheriff Doughnut Nudnik would try to place blame somewhere else as it turns out that his department ignored complaints about Loughner’s insane behavior for years before he finally managed to murder half a dozen innocent people.

In case you’re wondering, Sheriff Petukh is a registered Democrat.

We almost had to pick ourselves off the floor when we learned that.

    And here I thought it was just a random coincidence that his name anagrammed to “Uncleaned Prick”, but maybe not.

    I’m pretty sure the sheriff will be retiring very soon. It’s virtually guaranteed by the combination of his department’s year’s long buck-passing on all the complaints and death threats from the shooter, combined with their desperate buck-passing now, combined with the sheriff’s disjointed ramblings that make you wonder if he knows what decade it is. It’s like watching Tommy Lee Jones in “No Country for Old Men”, except Sheriff Nudnik could be Tommy Lee Jones’ character’s father called in from the county nursing home. He seems to barely have a firmer grasp on reality than the shooter.

    The interview almost played like:

    “Sheriff, what do you think was the killers motivation?”

    “All them signals, them voices, beaming through space, saying hateful, angry things.”

    “And you have hard evidence that the killer heard these, that they influenced them?”

    “No, but I hear ’em all the time. Always there, in my ear, talkin’ and talkin’, angry voices, going on and ON AND ON! We gotta make the voices stop!”

    Local politics never ceases to floor me. How can a community, county, district or city keep elect a village idiot when the rest of the country is going “WTF are you doing?”

    And yes, my congresscritter (ops, vile hate speech) is Moron er, Moran

    None of the MS-idiots want to hear top cop Joe Arpaio weigh-in on any motives of why a murderous psychopath would want to…ahh…murder somebody.
    Over at Slate we have his advice to the electorate:

    In 1981, Dupnik sent a message to all residents: Arm yourselves. Police couldn’t adequately protect the populace, he said, because they didn’t have sufficient manpower: “Not only are things not good, they are going to get worse. For those who are so inclined, it’s time to start protecting yourselves.”

    And later, in an attempt to allow Federal agents to enforce Arizona law, DUpnicked could have paved the way for the Posse Comitatus Act and revised Insurrection Act to allow troops to enforce Arizona law.

    In 2007, Dupnik raised the hackles of immigration activists when he proposed to have federal agents work alongside his own border crimes unit. Opponents argued that this kind of cooperation would allow federal agents to enforce local law, and police officers to enforce federal law. Dupnik said the purpose was only to increase communication and cooperation between the forces.

    For not very similar reasons, I too am having vertical hackle response when this ass-munch speaks.

    Sherriff Dupnik is not a cop; he only plays one on TV. Such is the case with 99 percent of “law enforcement executives.” They are political creatures who owe there sinecures to continued fellation of the political class in power.

    Imagine being a LEO that has this guy for a boss. Not only would you have the responsibility to investigate a high profile case, your investigation and the resulting prosecution would be ham-strung by your “boss” running his suck.

    Good luck to the men and women investigating this crime.

    I wonder if Mr. Dupnik goes to sleep every night afraid of the evil Sean Hannitys underneath his bed.

    Limbaugh is calling him “Sheriff Dipstick.” Works for me.

    I was just listening to him as well. He’s in a heavily Latino County, so I think Sheriff ESTUPIDO would work as well!

    Sheriff’s from two of the adjoining counties will not even speak to the guy. And Tucson is the moonbat capital of Arizona.
