As the left and the media continue to point the blame over to Palin and the right as the reason why people were killed and wounded by a psychopath, it still isn't over.

Christiane Amanpour hosted a town hall meeting in Tuscon to air for her "This Week" Sunday Talk Show. She invited many people to this town hall, people who witness the tragedy, some of the victims who were shot, politicians and advocates on both sides of the gun control issue and tea party representative.

An incident happened at the end of the tall hall meeting. Democrat James Eric Fuller, who was shot at the Safeway Shooting, attended this town hall and then did something that shocked people.

Democrat James Eric Fuller took out his cell phone and took a picture of the Tucson Tea Party co-founder Trent Humphries and then said to him, "You're Dead!"

Pima County Sheriff's Department confronted Democrat James Eric Fuller, and he responded by screaming at the law enforcement personnel and calling them "Whores!"

Democrat James Eric Fuller was charged with disorderly conduct and threatening and intimidation and taken to a local mental health facility.

Maybe he was just enraged over recent events?
Maybe he's gone over the edge?
It sounds like he's having trouble dealing with the shooting. PTSD?

Either way, I hope he gets the help he needs.

He doesn't sound well--understandable i suppose, but evidently had some minor issues even before the shooting..

TUCSON — A victim of the shooting spree here that killed six people and wounded 13, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords, was arrested Saturday after he spoke threateningly at a televised forum intended to help this stricken city heal, the police and witnesses said.

Times Topic: Arizona ShootingThe man, J. Eric Fuller, 63, a military veteran who supports Ms. Giffords, was “involuntarily committed for mental health evaluation,” said Jason Ogan, a spokesman for the Pima County sheriff’s office.

Mr. Fuller, who was shot in the left knee and back on Jan. 8, was among several victims, medical personnel and others who attended a special forum at St. Odilia Catholic Church hosted by Christiane Amanpour to be televised Sunday on ABC.

State Representative Terri Proud, a Republican, was sitting two rows behind Mr. Fuller. The topic of gun control came up in the forum, she said, and one of the speakers made a comment about a bill introduced recently in Arizona that would allow faculty members on college campuses with concealed weapons permits to carry guns.

Ms. Proud said she spoke up to clarify the bill’s language. Trent Humphries, the founder of the Tucson Tea Party, who was sitting one row behind her, rose to speak and suggested that discussion about gun legislation be postponed until after the funerals. He started to say that he had also been affected by the tragedy because a neighbor was a victim.

At that point, Ms. Proud said, Mr. Fuller blurted out to Mr. Humphries, “You’re dead.”

Mr. Fuller then began to “behave in a very odd manner,” she said. “He was making inappropriate comments.”

Ms. Proud said that after the forum ended, she went to one of the police officers providing security at the forum and asked him to file a report about Mr. Fuller’s remark to Mr. Humphries. The officer told her it was being investigated.

About five police officers surrounded Mr. Fuller and escorted him from the event. As he was leaving, Ms. Proud said, he turned and yelled, “You’re all whores!”

Mr. Fuller was also involved in a confrontation on Jan. 8, shortly before the attack on Ms. Giffords, which occurred at an event she held for her constituents outside a Safeway supermarket. He said in a long interview last week with The New York Times that he had argued there with a man he described as a former Marine after a heated discussion over politics. Gabriel Zimmerman, an aide to Ms. Giffords, separated the two.

Mr. Zimmerman was killed in the attack later that morning.

Mr. Fuller spoke dismissively of Republicans during the interview. “They appeal to simple-minded rednecks,” he said.

He said that he had had trouble sleeping after he was wounded and that he calmed himself the first night by writing down the Declaration of Independence, which he had memorized three decades earlier.

In the first days after the attack, his anger seemed especially strong. In the interview, he repeatedly denounced the “Tea Party crime syndicate.” Expecting to see protesters at Ms. Giffords’s event, he said he planned “to shout them down because I can make a lot of noise.”

Speaking of Jared L. Loughner, who is accused of being the gunman, he said, “Saying anything about him would be a waste of breath. Recognizing his existence is a waste. I don’t like his face.”

Later in the week, Mr. Fuller visited the Loughner home to apologize to the parents for calling their son names, according to reporters at the scene. They said he did not manage to see them.

But its the gun's fault..or Palin's, or Bush...

I see 2 things coming out of all of this:

1 - We will see more of rights fly out the window, and the crowds will cheer, not fully understanding they were manipulated.
2 - They will make Sarah into some sort of martyr with all the mindless attacks as it will backfire on them.

If I had been shot twice, I'd be having a hard time dealing with it too!

If I was shot, I probably wouldn't attend a town hall meeting a week later...

He's just another Liberal whack job who is angry at the world in general. I bet he doesn't apologize for his statements nor admit he needs help.

Tucson Shooting Victim: 'There Would Be Torture and Then an Ear Necklace...'


James Eric Fuller, 63, who was shot in the knee, had told The Post on Friday, the day before his arrest, that top Republican figures should be tortured -- and their ears severed.

"There would be torture and then an ear necklace, with [Minnesota US Rep.] Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin's ears toward the end, because they're small, female ears, and then Limbaugh, Hannity and the biggest ears of all, Cheney's, in the center," Fuller said.

Also on Friday, Fuller stopped by the home of gunman Jared Lee Loughner and told a neighbor he was going to forgive the shooter, The Associated Press said.

On Saturday, Fuller was carted away for a psychiatric exam after disrupting the town hall meeting by taking a photo of Tucson Tea Party co-founder Trent Humphries and shouting, "You're dead!"

A Democrat once again proves that the Democratic party is the party of “Do as I say not as I do”

If Mrs Giffords hung around unstable moonbats like this Fuller guy regularly, it becomes a little less surprising that something that messed-up happened at one of her get togethers. It doesn't make what happened any less senseless or tragic; but less of a surprise. As the saying goes, if you sleep with dogs sometimes you wake up with fleas.
