    One interesting common denominator among all these mass attacks, kamikaze flights, fertilizer truck bombs, etc.....is a strong predeliction for anti-government talk. Now before panties go into F5 twisters, I'm NOT pinning the tea party or neo-cons, but perhaps offering a reason why they are often linked in the media or on chat boards. They do share a common vernacular when it comes to anti-government rhetoric.

    You have to admit, some people can't stand a city worker putting in a stop sign on their street without crying "socialist" "goobermint" !!!!!

    Just a thought....

    A Tucson Victim Is Arrested at a TV Forum

    By [URL="http://www.retrievertraining.net/author/the-new-york-times/"][COLOR=#004276]
    More reports are available from the Arizona television stations KGUN and KPHO.
    Az has some serious issues they need to confront. As long as this kind of fervor exists, the chances of another disaster like the recent shooting is raised.
    A good leader is needed who is not polarized on one side or the other, that can bridge the great political divide in that state. Someone who can calm people down and hit the reset button. Where is McCain. Has he spoken out on any of this stuff that is going on their the last several months? Any other leaders who might have the support for people to listen too?

    I just got done watching that program, and spotted what I thought was Fuller, early in the show by his demeanor, before Humphries ever spoke. And it was.
    That man, imo had an attitude going all through the program.

    Why won't you address my question?

    I didn't say Fuller was going to do anything with his camera but it wouldn't be the first time that someone has taken a picture and used it for reference in a future action, to make sure "Yeah, that's the correct guy."

    In this circumstance, at this point in time, that comment was entirely out of line, inappropriate and had NO place in a discussion about "In the Aftermath".
    To me, "You're dead." sounded like it came straight out of the graveyard.
    Spoken to me, I would take it as a threat of impending bodily harm.
    If that wasn't an example of possible mental illness and cause for law enforcement intervention on the spot, especially given his following comments, then I guess nothing is.

    No, not at all. There have been several political websites who have made "hit lists" of candidates, with pictures.

    The anti-abortion nuts have posted doctors who perform abortions on "hit list" web sites, several of whom have been killed. Remember just this past election, there were congressmen who's pictures and home addresses were posted publically?

    Its not a novel idea at all.

    I think the guy was way out of line. Frankly, if I had just been shot, I doubt you'd see me anywhere buy my couch watching football this week.

    Everyone needs to take a deep breath, and step away from the microphone.

    So your saying then, if a government official heard of a threat and did not take action then he/she would be responsible for the consequences?

    I can't speak to other states but........in Arizona, if an individual makes a death threat or threat of bodily injury and it can be supported by witnesses, an arrest may be made. Kind of like making jokes about bombs in your luggage while boarding a plane....threatening someones life in a public forum over 'politically sensitive' issues right at this moment is probably not prudent. My son says he has made arrests for the exact comments even prior to this tragedy.

    Come on doc, your'e not that naive... Schizophrenics frequently focus on government agencies, or anyone in uniform for their delusional thoughts. This guy in AZ was a classic paranoid schizophrenic. Unfortunately, I have known one through marriage that exhibited many of those same symptoms. They can't get the gov't out of their deranged minds. Its really pretty scary. About the only thing that can keep them under control is forcing them to stay on medication, which most of them don't want to do. Or family having them commited to an institution, which most are reluctant to do till it's too late. Tough all the way around.
