WASHINGTON Following a comprehensive investigation, the Justice Department today announced its findings in the ongoing civil rights investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office (MCSO). The Justice Department found reasonable cause to believe that MCSO, under the leadership of Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio, has engaged in a pattern or practice of misconduct that violates the Constitution and federal law. The investigation, opened in June 2008, was conducted under the provisions of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Title VI implementing regulations.
The department found reasonable cause to believe that a pattern or practice of unconstitutional conduct and/or violations of federal law occurred in several areas, including:
Discriminatory policing practices including unlawful stops, detentions and arrests of Latinos; Unlawful retaliation against individuals exercising their First Amendment right to criticize MCSOs policies or practices, including but not limited to practices relating to its discriminatory treatment of Latinos; and Discriminatory jail practices against Latino inmates with limited English proficiency by punishing them and denying them critical services.
The Justice Department found a number of long-standing and entrenched systemic deficiencies that caused or contributed to these patterns of unlawful conduct, including:
Yeah we believe the Lying, criminal Department of Justice.
We´re all under attack by the United States Government.
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
You nailed it! No doubt none of this investigation would have been thunk of —had it not been for the elligibility question — a law man saying he doesn’t believe the LIE told by the President Holder has NO credibility The DOJ “findings” have NO credibility so long as Holder is NOT behind bars -sharing a cell with Manni Norriega ,and Barry Soetoro aka Barak Insane
Eric Holder and Mr. Obama are not natural born citizens. Thomas Jefferson told us only natural born citizens can work in government.
These slime in the WH simply discredit, besmirch and remove as their ploy due the Sheriff’s investigation of the Obozo’s eligibility. Right out of the Clinton/democrat party play book.
The White House has a problem with this gambit however. Sheriff Joe is, Obama isn’t
The public knows it
If you cause too much trouble, “they” will take you down.
Sheriff Arpaio is doing what is right, just, and in defense of this nation, therefore the enemies must try to destroy him.
The feds want Sheriff Joe to spend equal resources on those Scandinavians coming across the Arizona border.
Pretty good post....
But I'd disagree with a couple of your comments.
Our children ARE NOT going to bed hungry. There are NO children in America starving. Period.
Most of the "homeless" in America have chosen to be that way.
Some how, in some way, this is going to seriously blow back on OBozo & the rest of his CLOWNS!!
THE MOST CORRUPT DOJ IN THE HISTORY OF THE US AND THE MOST RACIST, MARXIST, ANTI AMERICAN POS TRAITOR DIRECTOR EVER TO SERVE UNDER THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER TO INFECT AMERICA.
Unfortunately, it is also consistent with who Bush 43 was too.
He was an open borders panderer who wanted to keep two important (in his mind) constituencies in check: The agri-businesses whose business model depends on manual labor toiling under conditions of near slavery and, the Latino community of voters who (he thinks) equate lax enforcement of immigration laws with respect and concern for their rights.
It was one of his... less attractive ... traits.
