EDIT: I agree with Dupnik's opinion on the recent Arizona shooting issue. The stance he took on the Arizona immigration law and on the illegal immigrants is impressive.

"We were taught to respect authority, and parents and, basically, everything," he said. "And, in my opinion, that's one of the most basic things that has changed in our society: People don't have much respect for anything.

The sheriff is widely known for calling Arizona's tough immigration law "racist" because he said it required local law enforcement to engage in racial profiling. He refused to enforce it.

But when it comes to illegal immigrants, he doesn't have complete sympathy.
"It's wrong for the taxpayers in this country to spend the millions and millions and millions of dollars that we do catering" to illegal immigrants, he was quoted this week in The New York Times as saying.

You need to make some type of comment when you start a thread, a link and a quote are not sufficient.

I think this thread was motivated by http://lubbockonline.com/interact/blog-post/may/2011-01-12/what-sheriff-dupnik%E2%80%99s-motivation" [Broken].

Highly dubious.

There is a campaign to recall Dupnik because of his comments on vitriol in the media.

http://www.billoreilly.com/b/Campaign-for-Dupnik-recall-to-launch-next-week/897159680797181144.html

Ironically it is led by an anti immigration group from Utah??

Clarence Dupnik is an old fashioned law man. At age 75 he has been in law enforcement for 50 years. He has been Sheriff for so long because he seldom had an opponent in the elections.

This may get interesting. The Arizona Tea Party Patriots are supposed to protest in front of his office this week.
