ICE agency report puts serious dent in Eric Holder’s DOJ case against sheriff Joe Arpaio
The Dayton Tribune ^ | Robert Blain

Excerpt....

On Thursday Eric Holder and the Department of Justice filed suit against Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff’s office run by the outspoken and flamboyant Joe Arpaio who’s made it a personal crusade to uphold U.S. immigrations laws when the feds won’t.

Eric Holder and the Obama Administration are applying the full weight of the federal government’s resources into trying to stop the new Arizona immigration law, but that’s only one of the multi-front attacks they’ve setup to make sure states are stripped of their ability to enforce U.S. immigration laws. Now the DOJ is suing the most active and largest sheriff’s office in Arizona (Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office has 189 officers) by extending an investigation into alleged civil rights violations.

Back in March of 2009 the DOJ informed sheriff Arpaio that a probe was underway to investigate what the DOJ claimed were “alleged patterns or practices of discriminatory police practices and unconstitutional searches and seizures.” This is where things get sticky for Eric Holder and the Obama Administration.

Six months prior to this investigation the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) had already conducted its own investigation of sheriff Arpaio’s office and not only gave it a clean bill of health, they actually gave a raving review. The report said things like “The OI and DRO supervisors consider the conduct and performance of the MCSO … officers to be professional and meeting the requirement of the MOA.” And that they considered the working relationship between the feds and the sheriff’s office to be “excellent” and that cases brought by the sheriff’s office to be “high quality.”

The DOJ then got caught with its pants down when more government ......

Arpaio is looking into the Obama eligibility issue. Holder is trying to protect his mob boss.

The DOJ has become nothing more than an enforcement and extortion arm for a Chicago thug Administration at war with the pro-American and working class peoples of the USA.

I think there were a couple gummits around the late 30s that used these tactics?

Wellllll, Sheriff Joe investigates Barry. Barry then investigates Sheriff Joe. The good Sheriff must be getting too close to something. I’m hoping Sheriff Joe is too high profile a person to just disappear but as corrupt as this regime is you never know. Watch your back and give ‘em hell Joe.

I don’t deny that this is politically motivated, but Mr. Perez of the DoJ Civil Rights Division has investigated nearly 35 police departments nationwide to try to discover a pattern of discrimination against Hispanics.

The MCSO case is just the most obvious investigation.

For many years we lived in unincorporated Maricopa County, under the direct jurisdiction of MCSO. We were not impressed, to say the least. We now live in another county for several reasons, one of which is Arpaio.

That being said, I think Holder and Obama may have bit off more then they can chew. If I recall, Arpaio was a former DEA agent from Chicago. He knows how to play the game. He’s older and has had a lot more practice at it. He can be a very nasty enemy. And one thing he has that Holder and Obama do not - charm.

I personally know of situations where Arpaio has flat out sided with Feds (ATF specifically) over a whole community. I find it interesting that he’s now at war with the feds. Even though I have a low opinion of Joe, I hope he kicks Holders behind. I hope he doesn’t cave.

Here’s an old article from WND about what happened in New River, AZ. We lived about a mile for Starflash Ranch, where all the “explosives” was stored. The whole thing was a fiasco. This article, while it leaves out a bunch of the drama, is fairly comprehensive of the event.

Every night we were treated to surveillance by those non-existent black helicopters. At one point, a neighbor called the FAA to complain. They said there were not helicopters in the area. The neighbor said, “so you won’t mind if we shoot them down?”. Luckily, it didn’t come to that.

I was followed by the ATF when I went hiking. They’d drive by our house on quads, dressed in riot gear with M-16 slung over their shoulders. The ATF did all kinds of strange things while encamped at the Ranch. They were using a small helicopter to fly in and out of the ranch. They’d fly right over our house - very low. We could clearly see their faces. One evening, they flew down to Ray’s Pizza on Carefree Hwy to pick up some dinner. They some how caused a car accident. No more little helicopter after that.

That's hardly a fair observation. Certainly the DOJ's efforts on behalf of Mexico's narcotrafficante drug cartels also deserve equal recognition!

The truth nailed by the second post. Well done.
