MetroCenter Mall Passes on Posse

The story I heard was that Metrocenter officials asked the Sheriff to keep the Posse away from certain areas of the mall because some people were getting nervous. The Sheriff refused, so Metrocenter said goodbye. I don't know if that story is true, and I won't jump to any conclusions about why they wouldn't want law enforcement in certain areas or who was nervous, but I believe this is worthy of further investigative reporting. As the Sheriff said, "Ask them!"  (Nov 26, 2010 | post #1)

Illegal Aliens

Immigrant claims group of 60 lost in desert

Phoenix had its first 100F day of the year yesterday. It's hotter in the deserts. Illegal aliens trying to cross the Arizona desert are going to start dying of dehydration, and it will get worse as the summer heats up. Every death there can be laid squarely at the feet of our President and the Secretary of Homeland Security, who have refused to close our border with Mexico.  (May 22, 2010 | post #1)

Immigration Reform

Thousands protest US sheriff's immigration efforts

The protesting groups were joined by a group called the Phoenix Anarchists, dressed in black hoodies and wearing bandana face masks. Since this was in Phoenix jurisdiction, Phoenix issued the parade permit and provided traffic control and security. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office was there to provide jail and facility security. While the group marched from their staging point south on 35th Avenue toward Buckeye, these black-clad anarchists assaulted a Phoenix PD officer with rocks, cans, and traffic cones. Two are in jail now. When the march turned the corner eastbound on Durango Street, some of the anarchists assaulted a Phoenix Police mounted officer. When a protester started hitting the horse with a pole, the mounted policewoman deployed OC spray (pepper spray). The MCSO Medical Rescue Posse treated the protesters who were affected by the spray. The video of the attack on the horse is here: http://www.indybay .org/uploads/2010/ 01/17/cop-on-horse -pepper-spray.mp4  (Jan 19, 2010 | post #198)

Crazy Sheriff Joe Arpaio facing FBI investigation for abu...

The story comes from a publication called "Crooks and Liars" which is probably an appropriate name. If this is journalism then I know some people who need to go back to school.  (Dec 16, 2009 | post #3)

RidersUSA rally to support Sheriff Joe Arpaio 2-28-2009

For your information, the chain gang is made up of inmates who volunteer for it. It gets them out of their cells into the fresh air for a few hours and they learn some discipline. They actually "graduate " after they go out a few times, like a quasi-military boot camp. It's good for them and they enjoy it. Sheriff Arpaio is immensely popular, both in this area and across the nation. He makes the Phoenix area look great!  (Oct 14, 2009 | post #10)

Crews pull 19 dead cats from Phoenix canal

I don't know why there's so much animal cruelty around this area. Maybe it's just reported more often than it is in other cities. Serial killers often start by killing animals. Fairly recently there was an episode where some PETA members had killed a bunch of animals they were supposed to be caring for. After seeing some of these things, I know there is no limit to human cruelty.  (Oct 14, 2009 | post #2)

Feds limit Arizona sheriff's immigration powers

I guess we have to go to New York to get our news about Sheriff Joe. LOL! This won't make any difference to the Sheriff. ARS 13-2319 still makes human smuggling a crime in Arizona, and all of the illegals are successfully prosecuted for conspiracy to violate that law.  (Oct 7, 2009 | post #1)

Coyotes dump couple in desert; strip man, rape woman

Me (whispering in Rosanne Rosanna-Danna's ear): "PSST! When they say "coyotes " they are talking not about the hockey team but about criminals who help illegal aliens sneak into the US." Rosanne Rosanna-Danna (looking up at the camera): Oh. Never mind!  (Sep 15, 2009 | post #96)

Critics call Arpaio aggressive, intimidating

"In 2008, Arpaio sent 60 deputies and posse members with bulletproof vests and semi-automatic weapons into Mesa City Hall and the Mesa Public Library for a predawn immigration-relate d raid." OMG the Sheriff's Office has GUNS??? Who'd a thunk it? FWIW, during the last campaign, the Dan Saban campaign workers were running around with police scanners and video cameras, following Sheriff's deputies and Posse members as they worked. So Mr. Saban shouldn't be complaining about "investigatio ns."  (Sep 3, 2009 | post #5)
