Citizens group confronts sheriff on immigrants

'Copwatch' calls for sheriff to release immigrants from jail Friday, June 16, 2006 Members of a citizens group known as Copwatch protested outside Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office Friday morning. They held signs asking Arpaio to release illegal immigrants that his deputies and volunteer posse members have arrested. The arrests came under a state law making it illegal to conspire to smuggle humans into Arizona, or to conspire to be smuggled. Arpaio came down from his 19th floor office in the Wells Fargo Building to let the members of Copwatch present their complaints in person. They told Arpaio that he and County Attorney Andrew Thomas are misintepreting the law, which they claim was intended to apply only to coyotes, or human smugglers. Arpaio responded that with over two dozen immigrants already having pleaded guilty, the justice system has apparently agreed that the law is constitutional.

If someone else posted this, I'm sorry. I did a search and couldn't find this particular story. Sheriff Joe told them that he was going to go out and arrest more and they could "put that in their pipe".

A whole half dozen. WOW!

I think we just might be casually acquainted with one of the unhappy six.

We need more sheriffs to arrest illegals same as Sheriff Arpaio is doing. He has a new Arizona law that helps him a lot.

Every county in America needs a Sheriff Joe! Tough on crime, tough on criminals. Illegal migrants committed a crime entering our souvereign nation and Joe and the Maricopa County Courts are giving them the justice they deserve. I fail to see the gist of an argument in this.

Sheriff Joe should have asked copwatch if they could produce an illegal that would verify that the persons he was holding were NOT coyotes, then when they obliged, arrest all of copwatch on conspiracy to smuggle.

Actually, my son was a member of this group a few years ago....he was an impressionable 18-year-old, and if he wanted to spend his time "helping" people, that was his business. Most of them are nutty, but SOME of them are decent, though misguided.

I like your tag line. From time to time I drop in on DU, usually when a freeper posts a link to a dummy thread. Fascinating and scarey culture over there. It's not a nice web forum like the Free Republic and it seems as if everyone over there is really unhappy.

you think like a lawyer

Guilty as charged. A long time ago a wise older friend dissuaded me from becoming a policeman. The reason, a good cop must be able to think like a criminal, both to catch them and to protect themselves from them. He knew I could not.

I sadly understood that he was right. I became an engineer and dabbled in observing legal issues and the reasons that things didn't work the way they were supposed too. I slowly caught on and finally did gain the ability to think like a criminal lawyer.

If that were the case, why is Tent City ALWAYS at capacity? Crime has NOT gone down in the 12 years or so that Sheriff Joke has been in office. He's a grandstanding publicity hound. Don't believe the hype.

funny, I went to school and got my chemical engineering degree, stayed at home for 19 years with the kids, got an elementary teaching degree, I love to teach but the administrations of the districts need some tweeking, so now I'm taking law classes.

I don't know much about Moore, but yes to everything else you wrote.

The thing is, since I DON'T know much about Moore, mainly because he's not one of the media's pets, I really can't comment about him.

However, people who don't live here in Arizona read a little article about the tough-talking (as well as self-serving and corrupt) Sheriff Joke and proudly proclaim how "lucky" we are to have him.

They don't know the half of it.

He's NOT what he proclaims himself to be. He doesn't work for the citizens of Maricopa County, he works for Sheriff Joe!

Please, do a little research, folks.

Read about the millions he's cost the state of Arizona because of the wrongful-death law suits he's lost.

Read about Bearup and Hendershott.

Read about the Saville kid that he set up.

Read about the Joe-boxer incident.

Read about Dan Saban, who dared to run against him in the last election.

You ask why he's still there? Because we CAN'T get rid of him. Read the Saban story and you'll see why.

Then after you've educated yourself a little bit about him, see if you still want the Jokester for your own.

Part of the reason is he KEEPS it full on purpose. It alone gets him a lot of publicity. The actual jail has a lot of room, but his claim to fame is Tent City, so he keeps it full so everyone will point to it and say "ooohhh, that Sheriff sure is tough."

It's all for show. And it's apparently working, because you guys are falling for it.
