Arizona Sheriff Scoffs at Suggestion to Tone Down Rhetoric
FOXnews ^

Posted on 02/17/2011 4:56:18 AM PST by fabrizio

An outspoken Arizona sheriff has responded to a letter from the mayors of three border cities who asked him to tone down his comments on border security problems, saying, "feel free to 'drink the Kool-Aid'" of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke and President Obama.

...

"The threat from an unsecured border is real, where 241,000 illegals were apprehended last year by the border patrol and an additional 400,000 got away just in Arizona alone!" the letter reads. "These are failing grades by anyone's score card."

....

If your intent was to establish dialogue with me, you would have called, or at least waited for your letter to arrive by mail at my office, prior to releasing it to the media,"

...

In an interview with FoxNews.com, Babeu said he has recently increased enforcement near the border with "constant patrols" by SWAT team officers armed with AR-15s and night vision goggles. "I'm sending out deputies to meet these armed cartel members," Babeu said Wednesday. "And we will not use less than lethal force." ...

"They want us to sit and shut up," he said. "Well, that's not going to happen. This isn't a time to sit on our hands and ignore the issue. It's a time for action."

Sad to think how many GUTLESS TURDS are out there after hearing a real Sheriff speak. This guy is going to be another great one like Joe!

The sad fact is that most men are sheep. Proven to me when we had a pastor whose idea of Sunday morning was “weird tie day and weird hat day” and Sunday evening was “no talent night”, where he dressed up like Doris Day and sang and danced.

But what made it real was not another man would stand up with me and say that was wrong.

How do we support this guy? He is a target and will be taken down if we don't.
