Skip to comments.Arpaio Ready to Accept Racial Profiling Ruling: Documents
Posted on 04/15/2014 7:11:43 AM PDT by GIdget2004
The self-styled "toughest sheriff in America" is prepared to accept a federal judge's finding that he and his Arizona department racially profiled Latinos in violation of the U.S. Constitution, court documents showed Monday.
Attorneys for Maricopa County submitted a draft "corrective statement" (PDF) in U.S. District Court in Phoenix acknowledging that the judge had found constitutional violations and stipulating that Joe Arpaio, the county's swaggering sheriff for more than 20 years, wouldn't appeal some of the findings.
The turnabout is a dramatic one for the 80-year-old Arpaio, who's insisted that his department never racially profiled Latinos as illegal immigrants while scores of lawsuits made their way through the courts and the U.S. Justice Department launched a civil rights investigation.

3-D chess move?
It’s tough trying to enforce the laws when every damn illegal alien in the country, as well as Holder’s “DOJ”, are bringing “lawsuits” against you for doing it. America was lost when we lost control of our so called “courts”.
I guess we are just stupid. Where do most of the southern border crossers come from? Why would we not racially profile?
> i’m sure Arpaio is willing to be called a racist so he can get on with his investigation of The One who had much to do with the filing of those charges in the first place. I bet Arpaio is the most monitored target by the NSA in the world...
Truth be told, the liberals have given us more justifiable reasons to be racist than ever. They surely are and definitely racist against all things good, American / patriotic, Christian, or any of its representatives.
Uh, what article or amendment of our Constitution deals with this?
“wouldn’t appeal SOME of the findings.”
I wonder if the some means he will not appeal the spelling of his name or time of the day?
I will bet more than a cup of coffee that when we see the actual ruling, it will tend more to Sheriff Joe’s side than the NBS “news” version.
When is “border-crossing squatter” a “race”?
What race are Hispanics?
He’s probably just sick of it.
all you need to know bout “ coverage “ here
From the article, for those who couldn’t/wouldn’t click on the link:
The “corrective statement” agrees to properly represent the judge’s findings in communications with deputies telling them that mere belief that someone might be in the U.S. illegally doesn’t justify detaining him or her without some other reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed.
But beyond acknowledging the ruling, the legal filing goes further: It states that while the sheriff’s office will continue its appeal of Snow’s ruling finding racial profiling in traffic stops in general, “we are not appealing the Court’s finding that that MCSO violated the constitutional rights of Latinos during saturation patrols” in which officers flood a targeted geographic area in a concentrated law enforcement operation.
Moreover, even if the department wins its larger appeal, the finding that Maricopa deputies racially profiled Latinos in the targeted stops “will not be altered,” the statement stipulates.
Where’s the Obama birth certificate bombshell, Sheriff?
I applaud Joe for racial profiling...And that means he is not wasting tax payer’s money by strip searching 80 year old white ladies in wheelchairs...
