Jared Loughner: Death Threats to Local Bloggers, Radio Personalities, Pima College Staff

James Kelly, a columnist for Arizona News-Telegraph, writing at The Cholla Jumps says Sheriff Clarence Dupnik knew of Jared Loughner’s troubled past and his mental problems. Unfortunately for the sheriff, Kelly says Dupnik blew-off the threats when they were reported to his office. Amy Loughner, the mother, works for the Pima County Parks and Recreation Department as a Natural Resource specialist.
