It also revealed a very concerning attitude and lack of maturity in the perspective of someone working at the Houston Chronicle and covering border safety for the people of Houston.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Joins the Witch Hunt: Attacks Oregon Sheriff

Left-of-center media outlets began attacking the local sheriff from the Oregon county where the recent mass shooting occurred almost immediately after the tragedy. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence jumped in, and now the full weight of CNN has joined the dog-pile attack.

Yes, that means they targeted the sheriff and did opposition research on a leader currently handling a mass shooting in his county.

A report in the Daily Beast claims that Mr. Mercer abandoned his son at birth–a factor that the father did not mention during his anti-gun rant on television.
