Skip to comments.Sheriff Joe Arpaio In The Dock
Posted on 09/07/2010 6:31:26 PM PDT by Kaslin
Abuse Of Power: Our misnamed Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against an Arizona sheriff at the top of the administration's enemies list. Prosecute border sheriffs and sue states but protect the Black Panthers? Gotcha.
The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, the county itself and outspoken Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The suit alleges that the sheriff's office is in violation of civil rights laws by refusing for 17 months to fully cooperate with an investigation into police practices and jail operations.
The federal probe itself deals with alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and having English-only policies in the jails.
"The actions of the sheriff's office are unprecedented," said Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for the department's civil rights division. "It is unfortunate that the department was forced to resort to litigation to gain access to public documents and facilities."
What is unprecedented and unfortunate is the administration's war on Arizona for enforcing federal law and protecting its border, our border.
The feds have sued the state over the implementation of SB1070, which mirrors existing federal law, alleging that it's racist even though the law specifically prohibits racial profiling. The administration, in a report to the United Nations, has cited the state as a human rights violator.

The criminals and their commie ‘RAT enablers have been after Arpaio for a long time. I hate having a fascist government. The ‘RATS can shove their “change”. Give me freedom and liberty. Give me America, back.
“...having English-only policies in the jails.”
That’s a federal crime now? Yeesh!
Nothing but a fishing expedition by a 'Justice" Department that wants no immigration enforcement. As long as Sheriff Joe has been doing immigration enforcement, there are hundreds of specific potential cases, but the JD seems to be lacking specific individuals who's rights have been violated.
Dead on, they’ve been gunning for Sheriff Joe ever since he introduced the concept of pink underwear and baloney sandwiches. But he’s a pretty savvy guy, he’ll prevail in the end, just wait and see.
It wasn’t the pink underwear, nor the bologna sandwiches. I live here, and I know: It was the tent city that drove the libs nutz.
When he started housing prisoners in tents, gone were the days of coddling and eventually releasing criminals because of “overcrowding.”
The colonization of America by a foreign country proceeds quietly, pervasively, methodically and perversely. You think they only come here in the millions to find work? You are blind. They come to take back what they think is theirs. California is already theirs. We're just too stupid to know it.
If Congress grants amnesty to 20 million invaders and they vote, we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
I say, 'hasta la vista, baby.'
I just hope that the Dems get a total drubbing in the Arizona elections. Any Arizonan who votes for a Democrat is a total moron.
The “Just Us” Department investigation is to demand to rifle through Arpaio’s paperwork, and interrogate people to determine if Arpaio might have done something wrong. Which is utter b.s.
If they had any specific evidence, they would have charged Arpaio with a crime. But as it is, they want to “poke around your stuff until we see something that we might be able to prosecute you for.”
Some how we are going to have to come up with a way to stop this pos we have in the White House.
Go vote in November so we can get the majority back and then start Impeachment proceedings
>>Go vote in November so we can get the majority back and then start Impeachment proceedings<<
I’ve been predicting that he will be forced to resign shortly after the elections.
The so called State Department has flipped out too........did you hear they turned in their own country for stuff? hello, these people have a screw loose
Any Arizonan who votes for a Democrat is a total moron. ....................................... It depends on how many total morons are needed to decide the election. Look how many voted for a President in 2008. And the are a bunch of proud morons too.
In the duck?
Oh my bad eyes.
Well it could be, if language barriers imposed by mere decree mean it is impossible for Spanish speakers to alert staff to genuine problems. If a prisoner’s health goes south due to a local jailer’s negligence, it’s now a federal civil rights violation.
It galls that 99% of these problems are the illegales, but a domestic citizen or two may also be affected.
Can’t the tables be turned and complaints be made by states to the U.N. about Washington, DC?
Your discription of an invasion could apply to muslims too.
NOBODY’S gonna GIVE those things to you, save God. But He tells us to work out our OWN salvation... and in this sense, WE MUST TAKE BACK our own liberty and our own country. No one’s gonna do it for us.
I will not wait for the master to "give" me my freedom....I will take it.....after all, it is mine and always was mine.
Why would anyone want the U.N. involved in sovereign issues of state?
Ignore the bastards.....then defund them.....then tow the vehicles...then cancel the lease....then sell the building.
More proof we are in the last days, Good will be called Evil and Evil will be called Good.
It sure looks that way
SECURE VOTERS, NOT BORDERS!
Brewer Pledges to Keep Fighting the Feds to Secure Arizonas Border | Hannity
HANNITY: You know, theres a lot of speculation. A lot of people have come up with their own theories as to why they think this is happening.
What do you think? Do you think this is about politics?
Do you think this is about vote gathering? Did you think this is, you know, breaking people into demographics?
That the Democrats have calculated this will help them with the Hispanic vote in the country?
BREWER: All of the above. Its pretty obvious what is taking place.
You know, it is all politics in regards to how they are behaving, theres absolutely no excuse for it.
I mean, its you know, its like the unions, the bottom line the unions are at the White House more than he is.
You know, theyre running our country.
HANNITY: All right, Governor, always a pleasure, thank you for being with us. Appreciate it.
BREWER: Thank you. Thank you for your support, Sean.
HANNITY: You bet. Thank you.
