Palin on Shooting: Stop Mindless Finger Pointing!

1/12/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin has just posted an 8 minute video about the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords -- slamming critics who say she may be to blame for the event.



Palin says "We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker ... Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own, they begin and end with the criminals who commit them ... not with law abiding citizens who respectively exercise their first amendment rights at campaign rallies."

Palin came under attack after it was discovered Giffords was targeted by Palin on a map released last fall featuring crosshairs over her district.

In the video, she continues, "Journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible."

Palin also adds "We are better than the mindless finger pointing we endured in the wake of the tragedy."

She needs to just shut up and lay low for a while until the country heals. Putting bullseyes on her map wasn't the best way to make a point, was it? I've always supported her but even I think she's gone too far.

You don't immediately take a picture off your website that depicts Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords face with crosshairs over it if you don't feel a little guilty. Period.

I agree with Sarah. It's not her fault this tragedy occurred. The shooter made a choice. The fault of this tragedy lies on his shoulders alone. Allow him to bare the burdens of his sin. Bringing SP name into this tragedy is just sensationalism.
