Man wounded in Tucson shooting arrested at meeting

Man wounded in Tucson shooting arrested at meeting

A victim in the mass shooting north of Tucson attending a special town hall today was arrested after his outburst at another man who spoke in support of gun ownership.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department said it arrested Eric Fuller, 63, who was wounded in the knee a week ago in the shooting rampage that killed six and wounded 13. He was being held Saturday for alleged threats of intimidation and disorderly conduct and will undergo a mental-health evaluation.

The incident took place near the end of a taping of ABC’s weekly “Town Hall” with news anchor Christiane Amanpour.

The program, which airs Sunday and is called “Tragedy in Tucson: An American Conversation Continued,” reunited many victims, initial responders to the shooting scene and witnesses. Open to the public, the forum at a Catholic church was designed to promote conversation and healing a week after the grocery-store shooting.

But…wait. I thought the TEA Party, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck were the evil Jedi mind masters in this tragedy? I thought their followers, and Conservative NRA members were the cause of hatred, death, threats and other assorted acts of random violence?

Say? You don’t suppose that this J. Eric Fuller is a secret fan of Palin and got his *make a threat* order from some super-secret mind control project do you?

According to the story, Fuller is in custody and will undergo a mental-health evaluation. I think that is a very good thing to have happen, because we ALL know, SANE people do NOT make a threat against the life of another human being.

I also wonder? Since this Fuller guy is a fairly libber activist in the Tucson area, if he is found to be mentally unstable, will the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, and their marvelously efficient Sheriff, Clarance Dupnik, think the threats and mental instability serious enough to place Fuller on the list of people that don’t need to own a gun? Or, will it be swept under the table until Fuller snaps and carries through on his threat?

Much as it was when the threat was Jared Loughner?

I suggest you read the below block quote in it’s entirety, Human Events NAILS it!

Meet Eric Fuller

You might be seeing a lot of Eric Fuller over the weekend. He’s one of the people injured in Jared Loughner’s shooting rampage, taking rounds in the knee and back. He’s also a vicious bigot, and because he’s elderly and a military veteran, the Left is going to fall in love with him.

Fuller gave an interview with the Democracy NOW radio show, in which he said of the Tucson shootings: “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle, and the rest got their first target.” Presumably he’s not talking about Judge John Roll.

“Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled,” Fuller ranted on, “senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls.” I didn’t realize the Second Amendment called for all those things. They must be lurking in one of the penumbras or emanations.

And John Boehner’s part of Murder, Incorporated now? Even by the frothy standards of liberal hatemongering, that’s quite a stretch. At least the fevered minds of the Left can say that Palin, Beck, and Angle are feisty and confrontational. Boehner apparently inspired a murderous rampage by gently taking that gavel from Nancy Pelosi’s hands.

Fuller’s emergence as a beeping smoke detector amid the right-wing haze of the “Climate of Hate” has already drawn praise from Soros operative Eric Bohlert, who issued a Twitter taunt to Michelle Malkin and Andrew Breitbart: “Countdown to smearing wounded veteran from Tucson massacre begins… now.” Gosh, I hope Michelle and Andrew don’t mind if I go first. SOURCE

Ladies and Gentlemen, there are many mentally ill, mentally unstable, crazy, whatever you care to call them, there are many among us that are NOT playing with a full deck. Eric Fuller is one of those individuals.

Fuller then swiveled in his chair, raised his camera and took a photo of the pro-gun speaker, muttering, “You’re dead,” according to Joel Tranter, who was sitting behind him.

“I told him, ‘You need to be respectful. You need to calm down,’” Tranter said. “He said, ‘What’d you do, vote for this guy?’”

As police officers approached to escort Fuller outside, he turned and shouted at the audience: “You whores!”

That is the open rantings of an unhinged leftist. He’s threatening someone that had nothing to do with the shootings in Tucson. Didn’t he hear the campaign speech, uh, sorry, the call for unity and the words of wisdom and condolences spoken by Barack Obama at the recent memorial service?

Maybe he didn’t get his free campaign T-Shirt, uh, oops, Obama memorial souvenir.

Fuller, who works as a signature collector for political initiatives, was about 10 to 15 feet away from Giffords, talking to her volunteers, when the shots erupted on Jan. 8. He said earlier this week he was hit by a bullet when he dove to the ground to play dead. He decided that because he didn’t have any medical training to help others, he walked to his car and drove himself to the nearest hospital.

Well, there you go, typical moonbat libber logic; Hooray for ME and SCREW YOU!

    I think he response during the shootins says all we need to know about him. While there were heroes who came to the aide of the victime, this man ran and hid until he felt it was safe. Now he is trumpeting the virtues of gun control. You are right, the left will embrace this man and use him to pass their agenda.

  3. “…when the shots erupted on Jan. 8. He said earlier this week he was hit by a bullet when he dove to the ground to play dead. He decided that because he didn’t have any medical training to help others, he walked to his car and drove himself to the nearest hospital”.

    Why am I NOT surprised? Great Post Fred!!!

    Have you seen this one by Gateway Pundit? A photo of the Jumbotron during Obozo’s campaign speech… you know the speech that Gibbs couldn’t understand why people were applauding??? Does the White House ever do anything but LIE?

    Very interesting statement here:

    “He said earlier this week he was hit by a bullet when he dove to the ground to play dead. He decided that because he didn’t have any medical training to help others, he walked to his car and drove himself to the nearest hospital.”

    I’m wondering if he was even shot with the others? During the week, HE was the one who said he was hit by a bullet. Since he didn’t have medical training, HE says HE walked to his car and drive himself to a hospital. With all that was taking place, why would he just casually walk to his car and drive himself to a hospital? Wouldn’t getting shot in the knee make walking quite difficult? I would think a person would lay there and wait for medical help. If he was shot, I’m wondering if he didn’t shoot himself? He wouldn’t be the first person in history to shoot, stab, or maim himself to gain notoriety. Being a “shooting victim” gives him moral superiority and notoriety; that’s what he wants.

    Bob — That’s a damned good question…

    I know that people shot in the kneecap are in excruciating pain, uh, so I am told… I guess it would depend on how the bullet actually hit his knee, if it really DID hit his knee…

    And driving himself to the hospital threw up a flag on MY screen…

    I heard the last bit of this on the radio coming home tonight – How sad!

    BLAME does NOT solve the fact that there are nut jobs out there – and just because you or anybody sadly ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time – won’t fix it – NUTS ARE NUTS!

    Gun CONTROL ONLY ENABLES the bad guys to have guns – and decent people NOT to have one…

    Report on Fuller: “He said earlier this week he was hit by a bullet when he dove to the ground to play dead. He decided that because he didn’t have any medical training to help others, he walked to his car and drove himself to the nearest hospital.”

    I have no idea how I would have responded in the situation in Arizona, but I’d like to think I would have stayed and at least tried to help others. If his wounds (knee and back) were insufficient to immobilize him, then he could have helped others despite what was going on. Lord knows that plenty of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan wounded severely hung around to help their buds. Many earning high quality medals and some posthumously having died from their wounds while trying to help others.

    I suspect that he was a self serving individual. I’ve known a few true heroes with full blown PTSD cowering at the sound of helicopters, diving in the ditch when they hear a car backfire etc. This fella is no where near their league.

    Good post Fred, keep them coming.

  8. minuteman26 says:

    If they ever indeed are able to pass gun control consider me one of the bad guys.

  9. BobF says:

    Fred, even if it took place like Fuller says it did, he’s a flaming yellow-bellied coward. You don’t have to have medical training to assist anyone who’s been injured. By his own words, he showed complete disregard for the others who’ve been wounded and thought only to save his sorry butt. This guy is a masterpiece of depravity and a waste of human flesh.

  10. I note that the mainstream media doesn’t know how to spin this story. Yet.

    Give ‘em time: they’ll find a way to blame the Right. :(

  11. THIS, in today’s Traitor Times, is too much! The Left is still beating the same tired drum about the Tucson shootings. I call that perserverating, a sign of the mentally retarded and/or the insane.

  12. This is another Leftists who may or may not have actually been shot. This “wound” may be valid as a bullet path through tissue only or a laceration/abrasion he received to his knee, in the process of diving to the ground. If one actually receives an injury to one’s knee that does more than shallow tissue damage — and anyone involved in sports injuries knows that the knee is an incredibly-complicated joint supporting enormous directional pressures — one finds it first very painful, and two, likely to require intense repair and potential lengthy recovery times. If seriously injured, he would not have been able to ambulate to his car nor walk to the program. Therefore:

    I want to know how this man got to the program; did he drive, was he driven, is he wearing a brace? What is the nature of his injury?

    With all the heated rhetoric proffered by the Leftists recently, I would not put it past a SINGLE individual such as this character to CLAIM he was present and injured by a gunshot when he MAY have been present yet received an injury to his knee when falling, or not been present at all and, in the bedlam, standing to proclaim his 5-seconds of agenda’d victimization.

    No matter how this plays or lies, the man is a shill and every bit as reprehensible as those who sought to take political advantage of a disgusting shooting at the hands of a deranged young man. In addition, he spouts VIOLENT words on TV, in public, is arrested, and is not excoriated throughout the DEM/MSM? That in itself bespeaks volumes!

    I heard on FOX today that prior to shooting – he was spouting off craziness and picked a fight with some Marine that was there.

    Then he goes to this other meeting – spouted off more craziness – snapped a photo of a Tea Party speaker with his cell phone chanting “you’re dead”.

    He might be just as crazy as the dude that shot up the 19. I hope this arrest and psych evaluation they made him do KEEPS him from legally purchasing a gun! I think somebody needs to keep an eye on this moonbat!
