Sheriff Joe to Eric Holder: ‘Prove it!’
World Net Daily ^ | 1/5/2012 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 01/05/2012 8:24:25 PM PST by Brown Deer

Arpaio is challenging the Obama administration’s 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 Sheriff’s 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 didn’t prove there are systematic sheriff’s 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 sheriff’s department to federal court.

“If the Justice Department wants to take me to court, I’m 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 Arpaio’s 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.

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.

” - - - 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.

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!

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.

The burden of proof is on the accuser. They could however ask every mexican
on the street if they've been harassed and find as many as they want for a pack of smokes,
or a free AK-47 leftover from F&F.

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.

No, the Patriot Act did not go so far as to overturn the Bill of Rights 5th Amendment. Barrack Hussein Obama did it.

I am not the only one saying that Holder is reason enough to support whoever runs against Obama.
