This is the report that Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has been dreading since the tragic event on Saturday January 8.Now, everyone will demand sources which is fully understandable and will point out that thechollajumps states the following in the comments:
The sheriff has been editorializing and politicizing the event since he took the podium to report on the incident. His blaming of radio personalities and bloggers is a pre-emptive strike because Mr. Dupnik knows this tragedy lays at his feet and his office. Six people died on his watch and he could have prevented it. He needs to step up and start apologizing to the families of the victims instead of spinning this event to serve his own political agenda.
Jared Loughner, pronounced by the Sheriff as Lock-ner, saying it was the Polish pronunciation. Of course he meant Scott or Irish but that isn't the point. The point is he and his office have had previous contact with the alleged assailant in the past and that is how he knows how to pronounce the name.
The source is confidential. The documentation never made it to public record as of yet. I imagine it will be part of the prosecutions case in the future. The FBI will have all of that documentation soon.WP
