Sheriff Dupnik: Loughner 'specifically targeted the congresswoman'

Pima County, Arizona Sheriff Clarence Dupnik told CNN's Kiran Chetry they have documents and eyewitnesses to prove that Loughner was a very troubled individual. He added, people who have troubled personalities are very susceptible to this kind of anger in our country.

    Could CNN possibly find a bigger drunk to interview than the Pima County Sheriff? Talk about scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

    The reason that we have these crazies walking the street with guns is a consequence of an action taken by President Regan. At that time we deemed it unnecessary to take care of the mentally ill and cut support for mental institutions. We dumped people on the street that should be under constant medical care in mental wards. They can be seen as homeless people on the street. We can give 30 billion in tax credits each year to the oil companies but we can not take care of the mentally ill. Then we let everyone have access to guns (9 mm Glocks with large clips) because we refuse to enforce gun laws.....brilliant! And we wonder why this happens?

    Once again CNN is showing it's true colors by reporting mostly on this Congresswoman that was shot. She is the least important victim of this shooting. The important ones are the innocent people that were killed. That in and by itself says alot about the US. Place more importance on a politician than the average citizens. Could anything be more disgusting?
