Sheriff Joe's would-be assassins indicted

Members of 'Mexican Mafia' already in custody on other charges

Law enforcement officers in Arizona say they have broken up an alleged plot to assassinate Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is at odds with the White House over his investigation of Obama’s birth documentation, with the Department of Justice over his crackdown on illegal aliens, and assorted criminals already in jail.

The sheriff’s office said today that three maximum security inmates were arrested for conspiracy to commit murder “stemming from a complex plot” that involved the assassination of the sheriff as well as a plot to murder another inmate.

Authorities report Mark Cons, 33, and Rudolfa Santos, 37, “members of the Mexican Mafia currently housed in the sheriff’s 4th Avenue Jail on felony counts,” were served with arrest warrants for the alleged plots.

Samual Matta, 29, “a member of a documented street gang and who is currently incarcerated in the state prison in Florence,” also was accused of conspiracy to commit murder.

Authorities say the investigation began several months ago when detectives were tipped off by an inmate in jail on multiple homicide charges that Matta allegedly was planning to assassinate Arpaio using a rifle.

“Matta, who was planning to carry out the assassination plot once he was released from jail, believed that the sheriff was personally responsible

-snip-

The spokesman said Arpaio’s high profile positions on issues such as the investigation of Obama’s eligibility, and his determination to enforce laws against illegal immigration, have made him a bigger target than some sheriffs.

One of the threats, in fact, specifically cited Arpaio’s work on the Obama case.

"Wonder if they got their ‘Obama 2012’ t-shirts yet?"

You are right. The assassination of Sheriff Joe Arpaio would actually rally the hard left. That is really a scary thought you know?

Oh, of course. The Cold Case Posse Press Conference is July 17th, I think.

I’m sure they were already there along with the ATF to deliver the rifle for the job.

Everyone pray for God’s protection of Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse.

I’m sure they ain’t too popular with certain folks.
