Of course, this is political. Dem pols, Hispanic IA's and their supporters, they think that if they can get rid of Arpaio that they can use him as example to intimidate other local law enforcement.
Not going to happen.
Sheriff Joe is effective and they want to shut him to help the illegal aliens break the law. Luckily, more and more people are noticing the their law breaking!

Our freedoms are being taken away, bit by bit. Look what was done to Ramos and Compean by our government just to appease Mexico. Mexico is pulling the strings now and Obama is just a puppet. He and most of the Democratic politicians are doing a puppet show for Mexico and La Raza. Sheriff Joe is in the way because he isinforce the proof that if you enforce the laws the illegals will leave. Not what Mexico wants and not what the Dem's want to stay in power, it's all about votes.

"Even before he became Sheriff in 1993, Joe Arpaio was one tough lawman. After serving in the U.S. Army from 1950 to 1953, and as a Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, NV, police officer for almost five years, Arpaio went on to build a federal law enforcement career and a reputation for fighting crime and drug trafficking around the world.
He began his career as a federal narcotics agent, establishing a stellar record in infiltrating drug organizations from Turkey to the Middle East to Mexico, Central, and South America to cities around the U.S. His expertise and success led him to top management positions around the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). He concluded his remarkable 32-year federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona."

Yep! And guess what? They took Homeland Security USA off the air and I can pretty much guarantee that its not bc it was on a conflicting time slot with American Idol as they claim but everything to do with the escalating violence and the deployment of the National Guard.
OMG they did take it off the air. Sure that makes sense, that's because we saw just what happens when our L.E. agents and Coast Guard do! Damn that makes me mad!

The Democrats want more illegals to come here and invade our Country up to the point,and after they are given amnesty, all are registered as good ole Democrats,all are on welfare,food stamps,housing allowance,etc.,and are dependent on the Gov`t,and will vote forever to keep these diabolical fiends in office!!!! Why else criticise the good sheriff for doing a good job and enforcing the law??Congress surely does not want the law enforced!!!!!A POX on all of them!!!

The question everyone should be asking themselves is why didn't they join us in protesting against La Raza in Burbank when La Raza was protesting the show.

How many took the time to do something about it? There were about 50 of us, and one on our side was knocked to the ground. But nothing was done. If we had had hundreds out there, we would have brought home our point that we are fed up with Mexico and La Raza controlling our media and lives. But, again, 50 of us showed up.

Complaining on the internet isn't enough. Get out in the streets and do something, anything that gets your voice heard.

And, the reason you're yelling at me about getting out and doing something is bc?
I did make my thoughts known to ABC.
That was not directed at you, but at everyone. There are only a few of us who actually go out, you may be one of those who do. What bothers me is the thousands who don't and them complain at the results of their inaction.

I hear you. I actually encouraged them to keep the show going when it first aired, so to see it taken off when things are really getting bad on the southern border is patently unfair. That, in addition to Obama/Napolitano putting the spokes in workplace enforcements. I'm getting really sick of pols intent on keeping IA's in this country when Americans need those jobs.
Agreed! Howsit is right, but we all must do our part no matter how small. It is the people that give up that don't help!
