A Tucson mass shooting victim was taken into custody Saturday after yelling "you're dead" at a Tea Party spokesman during the taping of an ABC-TV town hall event hosted by Christianne Amanpour.
The Pima County Sheriff's Office said J. Eric Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed to an undisclosed medical facility, NBC News reported. The Associated Press said he was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.
He faces charges of threats and intimidation and disorderly conduct, according to Tucson TV station KGUN.KGUN reported that Fuller took exception to comments by Republican state Rep. Terri Proud and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.
Fuller was in the front row and apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried, KGUN reported.
Fuller took a picture of Humphries and shouted, “You’re dead.”
Some media reports said Fuller kept booing and making other remarks before deputies escorted him from the church.
Liberals need to stop all this hatespeech and blame. Their level of discourse needs to be brought into line. For the sake of civility, please tone it down, libs, your comments threaten the lives of Americans. Of course, if I had to sit in a room with that idiotarian hack Armanpour, I would be a little nuts, too.
Again, this shows that there is more evidence to support liberal influence to violence than conservative, and shows the disgusting attempts to politicize a tragedy by sore losers in the liberal intelligentsia who don't care about the victims other than ratings and political traction. The fact that the Left continues this idiocy and that the college morons were cheering and whooping it up at a memorial service shows the lack of understanding and compassion by the Left.
