Decision not to charge Ariz. sheriff isn't the end

PHOENIX (AP) — The federal abuse-of-power investigation into America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff may have been closed without criminal charges but Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's legal troubles are far from over.

A civil case brought by a small group of Latinos who accuse Arpaio's office of systematically racially profiling is awaiting a verdict from an Arizona-based federal judge.

The U.S. Department of Justice has also sued the sheriff for alleged constitutional violations including racial profiling, retaliating against Arpaio critics, punishing Latino jail inmates with limited English skills for speaking Spanish and failing to adequately investigate a large number of sex-crimes cases. No trial date in that case has been set.

When it comes to usurping the law in the name of liberal politics never underestimate the powers of a ‘federal judge’.

I agree. They’ll probably shop for some “federal judge” that will come up with something.

Arpaio should pull an Eastwood and tell them to “make his day.”

The left never gives up. Like the muslims, any break is just a hudna. If the law can’t be used, they change the law.

For example: I’ve been following the backroom discussions on getting Geert Wilders brought down for something, anything. Pure criminal and deadly enterprise.

The last I heard about this case is that Arpaio filed to dismiss the case because of frivolity (no real evidence), and a non-jural entity that cannot be sued.

This is actual "evidence" they were using.

Wouldn’t it be great if Sheriff Joe replaced Holder at the Justice Department when Romney wins in November? I would think Sheriff Joe is the last person the corrupt rats want dishing out justice for the American people. He definitely has my vote.

Make him Director of the FBI. It would be like J. Edger Hoover was running the FBI again.

He doesn’t have legitimate legal problems.

He does have problems with a fanatical leftist government tyrant trying to intimidate him.

Is it Joe’s fault there hasn’t been any SUV’s run the border packed with 17 6’ tall, blonde-haired, blue-eyed Swedes?

Foreign criminals carry consirable influence with this administration. Their drug money bribes many judges and politicians. Bo and Holder side with these gangs against Americans and we stand on idle while bowing to our criminal rulers.

Seeing as the basis of the charges are a perversion of Reason and Logic, sooner or later someone is going to have to say “go to hell” or “come and get me” or otherwise go willingly up the river on a passel of lies; because Liars don’t stop until they get where they’re going.

Arpaio can't sue the feds for lawyer fees and court costs for frivolous prosecution, but he can sue any Commie Latino that files a frivolous civil suit for that and compensatory/punitive damages.

Good luck, you Commie POSs.

Malicious prosecution suits should be filed against all individuals and their attorneys who take part in trying to destroy Joe Arpaio.

SandRat: "Make him Director of the FBI. It would be like J. Edger Hoover was running the FBI again."

IslandLad: "Is Sheriff Joe gay?"

Why would you respond in that fashion simply because SandRat mentioned Hoover? SR's suggestion had nothing to do with Hoover's proclivities but you chose to associate Sheriff Arpaio with that instead of the comment's original intent. Putting him in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Get it?

Did you mess up when you created your FReeper handle? Was it supposed to be FireIslandLad?
