DOJ Breaks Off Negotiations With Defiant Sheriff Joe Arpaio
ABC News ^ | 4/3/12 | Jason Ryan

Posted on 04/03/2012 7:55:46 PM PDT by Nachum

The Justice Department has cut off negotiations with Sheriff Joe Arpaio and officials with the Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff’s Office in its effort to install an independent monitor to rein in the unconstitutional tactics used by officers there. Arpaio, who calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” defied the Justice Department suggestion that it could sue the county and the sheriff’s office to force the issue. “I am the constitutionally and legitimately elected Sheriff and I absolutely refuse to surrender my responsibility to the federal government,”

Melancholy - looky here!

No kidding? They went completely un-branded from the outside view? Don’t they want to advertise who to contact if you have news?

Perhaps they are on a single-channel feed....

Or they see people readying the pitch forks.

So the DOJ tried to use an unconstitutional tactic because the elected Sheriff was [supposedly] using unconstitutional tactics and that Sheriff told them to go pound sand?

LOL!

GO JOE!

Your post 46 is correct. Unlike what you see on TV where the Feds come in and take over a crime scene, the Sheriff ranks higher.

Sheriff Joe has the legal grounds to arrest and detain the Feds if he so wishes in his jurisdiction. If they interfere with an active investigation or attempt to subvert the authority of the Sheriff, he’s got the grounds.

watching my state stand up to the communist regime in Washington.

Little of this makes sense until you realize that Obama is a RADICAL MUSLIM playing Communist Liberal.

To destroy the United States, all you would need is a reality show host who plays a liberal dumbass like Jimmy Carter on steroids. Instead of wasting $Billions like peanuts, waste $Trillions.

Instead of screwing up foreign policy like peanuts, attack Libya and set it up for Sharia law.

Remove US Troops from Iraq and set it up for Iran to supply terrorists to make it fall back into the hell of Islam.

Egypt is going well, the Muslim Brotherhood is set up there.

Block oil drilling in US, make $Billions flow to Arab states and then tell idiotic Americans that American production will NOT affect the price of oil.

Block the Canadian pipeline and then blame the Republicans

Ignore and destroy the Constitution

ETC.

A traitorous Muslim President makes sense. A radical liberal would be more like Carter. Obama is destroying on purpose.

Bring on the race wars.

If Obozo sends in Federal Marshals,....

*******

Is President Flexibility so desperate for Hispanic votes that he is more than willing to throw the good Arizona sheriff under the bus and arrest him in order to win many Hispanic votes on election day Nov. 2012?

sheriff joe is like the legendary, fearless american hero in old hollywood films — standing up for what is right and the law.

as to the communist foreigner, it seems as though he’s going quite mad. really, if you look closely, the things he’s been saying and doing show a person who’s gone crazy. he may end up being taken out of the white house not in an orange jumpsuit or pink underwear but a straight jacket.

as odd as it may seem, this little move by the communist foreigner may be exactly what’s needed to take the criminal fraud investigation to the next level. by confronting sheriff joe, it’s actually calling more attention to his investigation and the evidence which he has uncovered.

the communist foreigner thinks he can check arpaio but it is arpaio who will checkmate him. similar to what the communist foreigner did to the SCOTUS.

Yes, the freaking cowards must have read my posts!

Many of us will suffer the terrible violence that’s already starting. If we don’t stand up to defend ourselves, our families, our property, our way of life and our Republic by extension, then we deserve what we get, including but not limited to, communist enslavement.

That said, I’ll repeat what I’ve been saying for years. The violence enablers and fomenters should suffer PHYSICALLY as many of us will.

It’s only fair. As our e_steemed pile, 0b0z0, admonished his subjects: You gotta share the “sacrifice,” share the responsibility, pay your fair share, etc. Yes, Mr. 0h0m0, we certainly will make the people who SHARED THE FOMENTING AND ENABLING OF VIOLENCE PAY AS THE REST OF US.

Got it communists? No escape this time, especially when the checks stop and violence rules the day.

...unconstitutional tactics ...

Umm... Which constitution would that be?

The author surely realizes the US Constitution limits the power of the FEDERAL government, not the STATE. Doesn't he?

Hmmm...

I’d say Sheriff Joe has a lot more Hispanic support than we realize.

Stereotyping, in this case, is in our favor because they are underestimating Arpaio’s support among Hispanics.

If BO sends in Fed Marshals everyone will know that BO is scared shi%^&*$ of what the sheriff is doing. They will begin to finally put 2 and 2 together. After all, if Sheriff Joe didn’t have anything, they wouldn’t have to threaten would they?

That would make a fantastic movie. Arpaio has been in law enforcement for a very long time.

Your picture of Duvall really fits.

"true grit" is very much lacking in most of our elected officials.

People got a taste of "true grit" when Rick Perry ran for the nomination, this scared people to death.
