    Doesn't sound very civil especially after what he had witnessed.


    Tucson shooting victim detained at taping of TV special
    'You're dead,' man yells while photographing Tea Party spokesman

    TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson mass shooting victim was taken into custody Saturday after yelling "you're dead" at a Tea Party spokesman during the taping of an ABC-TV town hall event hosted by Christianne Amanpour.

    The Pima County Sheriff's Office said J. Eric Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed to an undisclosed medical facility, NBC News reported. The Associated Press said he was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

    He faces charges of threats and intimidation and disorderly conduct, according to Tucson TV station KGUN.


    The gathering for "After the Tragedy: An American Conversation Continued," to be shown as a special edition of "This Week" Sunday, included witnesses, first responders, victims and heroes of the Jan. 8 mass shooting that killed six and wounded 13 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz.

    Do you think "After the Tragedy" wants an "American Conversation" on what Gabrielle Giffords, Tom Hurndall and 255 Palestinian children have in common?

    Alison Weir does:

    "In the past 10 years Israeli forces have killed at least 255 Palestinian minors by fire to the head, and the number may actually be greater, since in many instances the specific bodily location of the lethal trauma is unlisted.

    "In addition, this statistic does not include the many more Palestinian youngsters shot in the head by Israeli soldiers who survived, in one form or another."

    Tom Hurndall was head shot by an IDF sniper in 2003 as he was trying to save the lives of three Palestinian children, aged four to seven, who froze under Israeli bullets.

    "Despite the urgency of his injury, Israeli officials delayed his transport to specialized medical care for over two and a half hours.

    "A British television crew in the area filmed a powerful on-the-scene report that was aired on England’s Channel 4 /5/ but has never, to my knowledge, been shown on American television.

    "Tom remained in a vegetative state for nine months, finally dying on Jan. 13t, 2004.

    "From the end of 2002 to the spring of 2003, Israeli forces killed four internationals and shot another in the face. One of the dead was a UN official, Iain Hook.

    "As with Hurndall, Israeli forces retarded efforts to provide critical medical care. /6/ Another was filmmaker James Miller, who had been waving a white flag.

    "He was shot in the throat."

    Finally,few in congress have been as supportive of Israeli war crimes as Gabby Giffords. She called a 2001 visit to Israel a turning point in her life.

    In that same year Israeli forces killed 103 children, 31 with head shots.
