Tucson Shooting Victim Arrested for Threatening Tea Party Spokesman

J. Eric Fuller who was shot last Saturday along with Congresswoman Giffords, was arrested today after making threats to a Tucson Tea Party spokesperson.  Fuller who said:

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,”  “Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled."

to Democracy Now, a progressive news service and website. 

There was a townhall of sorts today by ABC.  There were people there from all stripes including a spokesman from the local Tea Party.  Fuller was unhappy with a comment made and proceded to take a picture of Trent Humphries and told him "You're Dead".  The police escorted him out of the room and did arrest him and charged him with threats and intimidation along with disorderly conduct. 

Mr. Fuller has every right to be upset as he was victimized, but he doesn't have the right to his own facts.  There is no evidence whatsoever that political thought was to blame for the shootings last week. 

Mr. Fuller seems to have an interesting past and is a believer in social justice.  See here

Looks like those violent tea partiers are at it again.
