Arpaio says lyrical threat is just free speech

PHOENIX -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's not overly concerned about a new song called "Kill Joe Arpaio," although he doesn't think kids should be listening to it.

The song comes from the Crocodiles, an indie/fuzz rock group based in San Diego. It uses snippets from Arizona talk radio shows over music.

Asked if he were upset, Arpaio said, "Because it means, kill me, right? But, let me tell you something. It doesn't really overly concern me -- freedom of speech."

Things like the song come with the territory, Arpaio said.

"I'm a high-profile guy. I do a lot of things that may be controversial. But, to use music, I think it's gone a little too far because a lot of kids may be listening to the music."

While he's personally not offended, Arpaio said, "I don't think we should make those types of remarks against law enforcement. Forget me, as an individual."

He said he has some good supporters.

"I got Ted Nugent. He's a great singer. He came here recently. I swore him in. He loves the sheriff. I'd rather have Ted Nugent music for me than this bunch."

The Crocodiles' Brandon Welchez told the "San Diego Reader" that the group won't play Arizona any more.

“The Crocodiles’ Brandon Welchez told the “San Diego Reader” that the group won’t play Arizona any more.”

What a loss for Arizona to not be graced with this group’s intellect any longer.

Joe’s one of those guys that gets death threats and says “well come on then, I’ll be waiting”. He can also say “get in line” and really mean it.

Somehow, I think Arizona will get along just fine anyway. I see this a more a benefit than a threat.

Imagine if somebody wrote a song like that about some DemonRAT illegal immigrant supporter. The Left would foam over like Mohammedans in a rage.

Joe is a good humble man, the epitome of a good but tough lawman. He is a lawman in his very essence.

"...It doesn't really overly concern me -- freedom of speech."

Death threats, treason, libel, slander, perjury, and inciting a riot are all examples of speech that is NOT protected by the first amendment.

This brings to mind the group “Dead Schembechlers”, who hold “Hate Michigan” rallies in Columbus every fall.

Some of their song titles:

“F**K the Wolverines”
“Bomb Ann Arbor Now”
“Stukas Over 23”
“I Wipe My A$$ With Wolverine Fur”

These guys claiming they won’t play Arizona anymore is like me claiming I won’t play Carnegie Hall anymore.

Why? Losing their illegal intruder fans?

They look more like they're ready for an edible panties party.
