Questions About Pinal County Deputy Shooting

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 2:56 PM

Phoenix New Times' Paul Rubin looks into the shooting of Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll:


The DPS investigation raises more questions than it answers about a scenario that instantly escalated the already tense situation in Arizona stemming from contentious Senate Bill 1070 and the shocking March 27 murder of border rancher Rob Krentz.

Does the DPS scene analysis accuse or even suggest that Deputy Puroll (in the June 5 photo) staged the episode and injured himself slightly somehow for unspecified motives?

Or does it suggest that the deputy may have engaged in a nefarious scheme of his own device—say a shakedown of desert drug dealers or something of that nature (a la the recent arrest of Phoenix cop James Wren for ripping off drug dealers while on duty) when things went awry?

The answer is no to both questions, but with a large asterisk attached.
