Skip to comments.Sheriff Joe to Eric Holder: ‘Prove it!’
Posted on 01/05/2012 8:24:25 PM PST by Brown Deer
Arpaio is challenging the Obama administrations Department of Justice to present evidence to back its charge that his office is discriminating against Hispanics.
Prove it, Arpaio said in remarks directed at Holder in an interview with WND.
If Eric Holder has evidence that the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office has engaged in systematic violations of the civil rights of Hispanic, then show me the evidence, Arpaio said.
Arpaio contends that the 22-page complaint the Department of Justice released Dec. 15 against his office was nothing more than anecdotal and didnt prove there are systematic sheriffs department policies aimed at depriving Hispanics in Maricopa County of their civil rights.
Nor was Arpaio concerned that the DOJ might take him and his sheriffs department to federal court.
If the Justice Department wants to take me to court, Im ready, Arpaio said.
Arpaio was responding to a statement emailed today to WND in which the DOJ threatened to go to court immediately rather than show Arpaios office and the U.S. public the evidence it claims to have.
If MCSO wants to debate the facts instead of fixing the problems stated in our findings, we will do so by way of litigation, DOJ said in the statement.
The statement implied the DOJ already has rejected an offer of cooperation made yesterday by attorneys representing MCSO in a cover letter to the MCSO 38-page response to the DOJ complaint.
In the cover letter, Arpaio attorney Joseph J. Popolizio made it clear that the sheriff was willing to cooperate with Holder and the DOJ, but only if the DOJ revealed to the MCSO and the public its proof.

Hussein and his henchmen have declared war on America.
Holder does not have to prove it ,he just has to say it and it’s true
Make the b-stards show the proof. Call their bluff. Bluff is a nice way of saying lie.
Um, he doesn’t have to prove anything, Sheriff Joe. That’s what the NDAA was for.....
Obama is a b****** and Holder is just like him....
There is no proof. There is no evidence. This is just a couple of two bit, Chicago street thugs trying to bully a grownup in hopes of impressing the rest of the punks on the block. Joe has dealt with their type plenty of times before. He’ll end up kicking both of their goatsmellin’ @$$es.
They did the moment they rammed through Obamacare.
” - - - show me the evidence, Arpaio said.”
GAME ON, Joe! Make the US Justice Department obey the Federal Laws of the United States of America.
If Holder can’t prove it, then you should countersue for harassment for political reasons.
You are innocent until proven guilty by a jury of your peers. I do hereby volunteer to be on that jury!
BTW, is there a law against “political profiling?” If so, you could sue Holder, AND Obama for that too.
If Holder had any real evidence, he would have had the sheriff and many of his deputies arrested for civil rights violations. This was a silly political stunt by the Obama administration to impress the Hispanic community that they are “deeply concerned” and demonstrate their “solidarity”. It will never go to trial.
GO JOE GO!
(You realize that this all escalated when Sheriff Joe formed the posse to investigate BO’s history.)
OMG! That’s funny.
I guess laughing is better than crying.
I thought FReepers might get a kick out of it!!!
Just found it tonight!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo! I am so glad that I was sitting down when I read the above quote from your reply.
Whoa! What a shock that Bolshevik Chairman “You Lie” Obama would sic his personal Chicago gangsta’ on a law enforcement officer in the United States of America.
Just how low can Obama go? SHOCKING!
One man in America standing up against these bastards. A whole CONgress afraid to stand up to these punks. Tells ya where this Banana Republic is going. BTW I heard Rush call this country a Banana Republic today, while I’ve stated for 4 yrs.
That has long been the standard for those of his ilk.
Top post of this thread. Game, set, match.
We can stomp our feet and demand proof all we want but in the end, they now have NDAA.
I stand corrected from an earlier post, I dont weep for my sons future. I PRAY for my sons future.
Bend over, Eric Holder.
LOL! Great image!
Maybe the DOJ really does have something on them.
That needs to be sent to every email address at the WH and the Pentagon.
Go, Go -Sheriff Joe!
We’re with you all the way!
question: what is the NDAA?
National Defense Authorization Act- this year it included a provision that allows the potus to override the Bill of Rights and detain and imprison US citizens without charge for an indefinite amount of time.
that sucks...but didn’t the patriot act also do that...cannot keep up on all the junk the government is enacting...
No, the Patriot Act did not go so far as to overturn the Bill of Rights 5th Amendment. Barrack Hussein Obama did it.
thanks for the info...wonder if it makes it to the SCOTUS and a pox on the house of those that voted for it...
Rush has been saying we are a banana republic for years.
I am not the only one saying that Holder is reason enough to support whoever runs against Obama.
