Thank you for writing to us! Although we receive hundreds of e-mails every day, we really and truly read them all, and your comments, suggestions, and questions are most welcome. Unfortunately, we can manage to answer only a small fraction of our incoming mail.
Our site covers many of the items currently being plopped into inboxes everywhere, so if you were writing to ask us about something you just received, our search engine can probably help you find the very article you want.
Choose a few key words from the item you're looking for and click here to go to the search engine.
(Searching on whole phrases will often fail to produce matches because the text of many items is quite variable, so picking out one or two key words is the best strategy.)
We do reserve the right to use non-confidential material sent to us via this form on our site, but only after it has been stripped of any information that might identify the sender or any other individuals not party to this communication.
Claim: Photograph shows a demonstrator at an immigration protest threatening to "shoot more Arizona police."
Examples:[Collected via e-mail, May 2010]
The Media will never show this but this is Arizona going down for the count.
I know john personally! THIS IS LEGIT! The photo was taken at a protest 5/1/10 in Phoenix!
I for one am OUTRAGED by this photo, taken the next day after a Pinal County Sheriffs Deputy was shot by Mexican Drug Runners with an AK-47 just a few miles from my home. THIS CRAP IS TAKING PLACE "IN MY BACKYARD"! YOU PEOPLE in other states Need to shut the hell up, and actuall READ THE PROPOSED LAW for yourselves, and NOT LISTEN TO THE RACEBAITERS like Sharpton and OBAMA! READ IT FOR YOURSELF THEN DECIDE IF IT IS RIGHT OR WRONG
I have about had enough.
Picture taken by one of my friends in Phoenix yesterday when all the illegals were protesting. This is shocking! Just keep poking us with those sticks, you bastards. We're fed up.
Origins: The above-displayed image, reportedly taken at a protest in Phoenix, Arizona, on 1 May 2010 (in response to that state's passage of a controversial immigration law), purportedly shows one participant holding a sign which threatens the "shooting of more Arizona police" if the protesters are not afforded free health care, no-tax jobs, housing, and food. (On 30 April 2010, Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll was wounded in a shooting by suspected illegal immigrants.)
We don't yet know whether this image is an authentic or a manipulated one, but it appears to have been taken in Los Angeles, not Phoenix, during a similar 1 May demonstration in the former city, as indicated by the presence of the Los Angeles Timescomplex in the background.
