When Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries rose to suggest that any conversation about gun control should be put off until after the funerals for all the victims, witnesses say Fuller became agitated. Two told KGUN9 News that finally, Fuller took a picture of Humphries, and said, “You’re dead.”
Fuller, as law professor William A. Jacobson reminds us, blamed Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Sharron Angle for the shooting.
Mr. Fuller must be upset that the evidence does not support his accusations. According to the Phoenix ABC affiliate, he has been “taken for a psychiatric evaluation”:
Fuller was arrested on misdemeanor disorderly conduct and threat charges, [Pima County sheriff’s spokesman Jason] Ogan said. While Fuller was being escorted out, deputies decided he needed a mental health evaluation and he was taken to a hospital, where he remained Saturday evening.
The hospital will determine when he will be released, Ogan said.
