Shooting Victim Arrested for making Death Threat

Filed under: In The News — Ken @ 6:57 pm

Jay Eric Fuller, a victim of the Tucson shooter was taken away by deputies after holding up a picture of a Tea Party leader, pointing at the picture and saying “You’re Dead.” Mr. Fuller will be charged with threats, intimidation, and disorderly conduct.

Mr. Fuller was shot in the back while attending Rep. Gifford’s “Congress on your corner” event – he has reportedly blamed Glenn Beck, the Tea Party. Sarah Palin, and Sharron Angle for the shootings.

The target of the threat, Mr. Humphries, has made some interesting statements (one, two) regarding the shooting, but that doesn’t make Mr. Fuller’s threat justifiable, understandable, or acceptable.

Update: Here is video of Mr. Fuller being taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies, from the local Fox affiliate:
