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."
