seems those retired cops must be on the cartel payroll like all other cops who support illegal aliens.

i can see the dopeheads and dope dealers wanting Joe out while the honest folks who live like good citizens are in full support of Joe

Joe has been under the microscope from day one with obama all they have tried to prove failed do not nothing he is doing is wrong,says alot about those who want him out,he must be crushing their illegal bussinesses.

go to Joe's website and make some donations,mexico is funding those against him.

There is one thing that Sheriff Joe loves, as much as his wife or maybe even more, and that is the limelight; the spotlight; being in the public eye. And, to get his 15 minutes (and so much more), he latches onto controversial national issues whether they're real or not.

He love arresting illegal immigrants, whether they're cutting someones yard or committing a petty crime like driving with a broken taillight.

As for imagined issues, he's dispatching officers to Hawaii to check Obamas birth certificate. Or he's sending offices to try and confiscate computer servers from Google offices in San Jose because of an internet game targeting police officers.

And, the punchline is that none of this is in his job description as Sheriff of Maricopa County Arizona. A local dick that's supposed to watch over the protection of its citizenry. Sadly, there are so many real criminal activity like child molestation, killings, etc., right in Maricopa County that he routinely ignores or puts in low priority to the detriment of the victims, a lot of them being children.

Go Joe Go, far away and leave us alone.

That's just another State and another Republican elected to protect Americans, being over run by illegal Laratza influences and if Arpaio doesn't find a likeness to follow him, that State is down the tubes anyway. The Cops want credit for developing a State that is so crime filled now, the tourists and retires have simply bagged going their. Thank's to Joe, parts of Arizona are still livable. And cartels and smuggler's rule the rest... Murder and drugs are rampant. The illegals living in Arizona are all flooding Utah. I've seen hundreds of Mexicans with Arizona plates driving and setting up housekeeping here. Soon with reform, they won't be able to hide anymore.

You make it sound as if crime is an issue in Arizona. Don't forget that the crime rate in Arizona is at its lowest level in over forty years.

I am really not sure how much of this can be blamed on undocumented bus boys since the crime rate is lower in the areas within 100 mile of the border than it is in the rest of the state.

"Arpaio was first elected Maricopa County sheriff in 1992"

He's been the sheriff for 21 of those 40 years. No wonder the crime rate has gone down.:)

He also has 40,000 outstanding felony warrants sitting on his desk. As a matter of fact 73% of all outstanding warrants in Arizona are for Maricopa County.

So there you have it. While Arpaio spends all of his time chasing after TV cameras and landscapers he has little time for pursuing actual criminals.

He may have made Maricopa County into a sanctuary for felons but at least they don't have to worry about bus boys walking the streets.

What are the felony warrants for? Illegal aliens that have returned after being deported?

I am sure you know that if your hero Joe arrested an illegal immigrant who committed a felony he would have never let them out.

No these are good old American felons and although you have zero tolerance for people who commit the civil offense of unlawful prsence you will no doubt a pass to the 40,000 felons. Strange isn't it?

I like the concept of offering a path to citizenship so that people will register and give their locations and be easy for the INS to pick up and deport ~ a very smart move....makes it much easier to start the wave of deportations that are being planned.

The US government should deport him for betraying American values through his discrimination, racism, hate, agism, heightism, etc. From what I've heard and read, he is disgrace to the American justice system by creating and imposing criminal charges on many US citizens and any person he can. At the very least, take him off the job and put him under federal investigation.

And, I'm sure if he finds out which old white retirees didn't vote for him, he will create a false charge and lock them up just like a 3rd world dictator.

I hope neither of them do! Obama and his obsession with drones. Maybe RPGs (rocket propelled grenades) should be sold to the public just in case.
