thank you, clarence dupnik, for speaking the truth

“When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain 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 think has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry……that may be free speech. But it’s not without consequence.”

Palin deleted her ‘crosshair’ map from her website after today’s murders, then offered “sincere condolences” to the family of Gabrielle Giffords, the very woman she had incited the unbalanced to ‘target’.

More on Clarence Dupnik:

Vivirlatino: Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik says Arizona’s crackdown on illegal immigration, is a “racist law,” and that he has no intention of complying with it. In doing so, Dupnik becomes the first major local law enforcement official to officially rebel against the bill since Governor Jan Brewer signed it into law on Friday.

Dupnik said the law is “disgusting” and “unnecessary”. Dupnik said his deputies plan to keep on doing what they’ve always done. He said when illegal immigrants wind up in his custody, his deputies will detain them for federal agents, but will not take them to the county jail.

Dupnik said he realizes that, under the terms of SB 1070, he could get sued for failing to comply with the law. But he indicated that’s a risk he’s willing to take. Dupnik insisted that federal law supersedes state law.
