Feds to release findings in probe of Ariz. sheriff

Breaking laws is human nature. We all engage in some type of another, although we may not admit it. Damn, I break speed limits all of the time. I love driving fast. Yet, I know if I get caught, I will pay the ticket. That is my god given right. I ain't going to snitch and get mad if other people do it. It is their business. That goes the same for people who smoke weed, inject their veins with "Meth" and crap. It is their lives and they are the ones who will suffer the consequences. Yet, I will fight for their right to do whatever the hell they want to do with their lives. Because that is what the US Constitution does, it provides civil liberties for everyone, despite the fact that they may hurt themselves in the process. Who are we to judge? As soon as you have individuals trying to curtail and control those liberties, is when we should all start to get worried. Because they can start with something like the "Patriot Act" and start targeting illegal aliens today. Yet, tomorrow they could do the same thing to other groups. Joe Arpaio is a racist old man who is utilizing the law to punish those he seems undesirables. Those who agree with Joe and his tactics may call me a racist myself and a liberal or whatever slur you can think of. Yet, that is exactly what Joe and his deputies are calling most of those people he detains and denies them their rights. At least I can speak my mind. Lot of those people cannot and that is the sad part. (Anyhow, I'm out of here. I won't be available to read your comments or respond to your arguments till next year.) So, enjoy and villify me just like Joe would now that I won't be here to defend myself. Hehehehe Merry Christmas to all.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #238)

I concurr Rico. That is the saddest part of all. That most individuals feel they have all the answers that they get blinded by their prejudices that they can't see straight. That sheriff is racist towards Mexicans and those that agree with him are for the most part prejudice towards Mexicans themselves. They just like to sugarcoat it by saying that they are "law-abiding ". What gets me even worst, is Latinos supporting racists individuals and fighting against other latinos. The sheriff and his deputies target solely Mexicans and despise them with a passion calling them all kinds of names, and it is even amazing you still have Latinos supporting him and his racism. It is almost like spitting on every Mexican, yet you have these goody-two-shoes confused Mexican-americans who are getting spit in the face and instead of speaking out and defending their civil liberties, turn their heads down like lap dogs and attack other latinos, specially Mexicans. Talk about self-identity issues. As much as these goody-two-shoes see themselves as Americans and can try to erase their name and act like white racists. The white racists will still treat them like "Mexicans " and talk behind their back. That's how confused they really are. Oh well.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #235)

People like me see through people like you, who claim to be of Mexican descendency yet you are doing everything in your power to close the door and are behaving just like you would expect to see in a racist white individual. In the black community they are known as "uncle toms". I don't think we have a name for those in the brown community. You are either too gullible or have no connection to the roots of your parents. While the racist sheriff goes in an illegal alien roundup acussing Mexicans of doing this and doing that, just like many racists do. Just like racist governors and politicians who in their anger write stupid laws blaming Mexicans for everything and yet you don't find nothing wrong with that. Of course, how can you find something wrong with Mexicans being blamed for everything, since you yourself are doing the same thing. Just because your family did it according to you "legally " it is reason enough for you to close the door and begin denouncing those who are trying to make it in their own way. Dude, the US goverment lied and broke every law that they made with the native americans when they stole their lands, just as people in the mountains continue to break laws nowadays to continue making "moonshine ". Laws are only written when it is adventagous for those who claim to be the victors. Yet those laws are always circumnvented when it suits their needs. Must I remind you of examples done throughout history just so you can get a feeling how laws are not always obeyed? Yes men have given their lives throughout history, yet giving them away our rights when it serves no purpose or just because you dislike some people does not make it right either. I don't like idiots like Arpaio or someone who is going to accuse me of being a second-class citizen just based on my appearance. Nor am I going to be happy with someone like you who is ready to give your civil liberties just because you agree with Arpaio on getting rid of illegal aliens. Why do they bother you, makes no sense to me. Nor do I care. But, the fact that you seem to attack them at every opportunity sure does seem suspicious. I don't like "racial profiling" of any kind whether they be done to blacks or to latinos or anyone in general. Just because some people are too readily available to say that they have no problem proving that they are US Citizens are the most suspicious of all. Those of you who support Arpaio and what he is doing, see no problem with the way he is doing things as long as he gets rid of illegal immigrants. It doesn't make one whole of difference if in the process he runs roughshod over US Citizens who get caught in his way. Maybe if all of you who support him are so ready to prove your citizenship, we could brand you.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #234)

What gets me laughing is how everyone is so pro law abiding all of a sudden. Yet you hypocrites ignore that laws are always getting broken every day in every level. From the moment we speed to fast, to those students who cheat on an exam to get ahead. To profesional athletes using Steroids to goverments and special interest groups pushing their agendas. Just like your hero Arpaio who has no problem breaking all kind of laws to catch his illegal aliens, just like cowboys did back in the old west. Everyone is always breaking all kinds of laws as long as no one finds them or catches them in the process. Does that make it right? Of course it doesn't. Yet, this is nothing new. It has always been going on since continents were formed and goverments started to enact their laws. Individuals are always looking to relocate to places where there are new opportunities, and it won't make a bit of difference if laws try to stop them. That is just human nature.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #227)

What I gather from those that support Joe and his tactics is that it is ok for the sheriff to continue doing what is doing, despite the fact that he is breaking the law himself and is encouraing "racial profiling". No arguments are good enough for these so called law abiding citizens. Yet the law is being broken by those who were appointed to uphold the law. Everyone can enjoy civil liberties, but not the illegal aliens is what I gather from Joe and those who support him.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #226)

What can you expect from an egomaniac who is being investigated. Do you really think he is going to go on record and say, "Yes. I admit it. I was wrong." Please. If the clown has broken the rules to catch his illegal aliens, it won't make a difference to stop now.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #225)

What is racist is for someone and their family who claims to come from another country through the legal means and go in a tirade against their countrymen. I don't know what roots you are talking about, when you are doing exactly what Arpaio and the racist white organizations have been babbling about Mexicans for many years. Pretty much acting like a lapdog for those idiots who hate anything with Mexicans in it. But it is cool if you like behaving that way no matter if in your mind you feel you are innoculated just because you were born in the US and your family came legally. It doesn't help if you are a 2nd, third generation US born and it sure as hell ain't going to help you any less telling Joe Arpaio that you are a US Citizen if you have dark or brown skin. The racist sheriff is going to stop you and is going to ask YOU to provide proof of being who you say you are. He and his deputies are going to treat you like a criminal just because you fit their criteria. I don't know about you, and as sure don't give a damn if you like to wrap yourself in a flag or consider yourself a law abiding citizen. In the eyes of Arpaio and those who are anti-Mexican. You already will be treated as a second-class citizen, and the burden of proof rests with you, instead of having the authorities do that for you. So go ahead and give your rights to Arpaio to stop you and stop others who look illegal just because you are a good law abiding citizen. Just don't be ridiculous to give my rights away. Cause, I damn as hell won't be treated as a second-class citizen and won't take it laying down when stupid law enforcement stops me just because of racial profiling. They better have a good reason to stop me and not because some stupid notion that I may look like an Illegal alien and need to proof my status.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #224)

It is not Eric Holder who fumbled all of those child abuse cases in his attempt to go after illegal aliens. It is not Holder who is denying latino inmates their rights. It is not Holder who is being investigated for abuses as much as you may try to put the blame somewhere else. We are talking about Arpaio and his succesive abuses towards Latinos and racial profiling. You are right. I don't know you. For all I know you are one of those confused Mexicana-americans who have no idea of their roots and is willing and able to give the sheriff the right to stop you at every opportunity just because of your stance against illegal immigration and some people who look like you. Ironic that in Arpaio's eyes you both get treated just the same. Yes, you are right. There are many Mexican-americans who are in tune with the anti-immigration shuffle and are screaming at the top of their lungs the same racist chorus that racist organizations have been doing for many years. It is quite funny actually. It seems that some of those same people don't realize that they are shooting themselves in the process. Either that, or they haven't seen themselves in the mirror. It is almost as ludicrous as a black man at a Klan rally. Latinos helping a sheriff who is stopping many who look like them. Talk about oxymorons hehehe.  (Dec 17, 2011 | post #181)

You also seem to put a lot of faith into an article that is very slanted towards supporting Joe Arpaio. Kind of biased toward being neutral don't you think? 3 years ago Arpaio did not have those child abuse cases on top of him and those rumors surrouding his prison and the way he was denying certain rights. Besides since you don't fit the latino label, why should you worry? It doesn't concern you. You are quite content to support someone who fights illegal aliens since it resonates with your politics. If it wasn't for those individuals sounding the alarm and putting the sheriff on alert that he was crossing the line. Nothing would've been done and everything would be business as usual. The sword of Damocles was hanging around Arpaio's head all of the time. It was that the man thought himself untouchable and has now started to realize that no one is above the law--no one. Absoulet power corrupts and Arpaio is proof of that. In his attempt to make illegal immigration his personal crusade. He crossed the line between being a public servant and upholding the law and being an ego maniac.  (Dec 17, 2011 | post #178)

Vance if all you are going to do is regurgitate and parrot what one of your favorite columnists has written. The least you could do is write your own opinion on the topic and not what someone has written before you.  (Dec 17, 2011 | post #223)

Here we go with liberal/conservati ve ping-pong. Who gives a crap about whether someone is liberal or conservative? While you bozos stand and fight among yourselves over political labels. The ones who represent you on Capitol Hill are making a mockery of the whole Constitution. Don't give me no crap about what a conservative columnist thinks about liberals since it is obvious everyone is out to defend their position. I could care less. What I'm interested in and would like to see is that the US constitution being respected for what it is and for all the rights and freedoms that it guarantees. When someone starts to tinker with it and excluding those rights because of certain provisions. We are all in danger of losing them in the long run.  (Dec 17, 2011 | post #222)

About time that clown gets put to pasture. What can you expect when the ringleader goes on illegal alien crusade and sees illegal aliens in every shadow. It is most obvious the old geezer can't think straight and sees himself as some sort of champion and above the law he is supposed to uphold. Those who support him and stand behind him for the same reasons should be ashamed of themselves. Just like a horse with blinders. This dumb sheriff only had one thing in common--to round up and abuse latinos and illegal aliens. It doesn't occurr to most of you who support him that he's encouraging and is displaying racial profiling in his attempto to rid his county of those he seems unwanted. It is kind of contradictory that he wants to take on the role of the border patrol yet is barking back at the federal goverment. Hehehe Now that the federal goverment took his money purse and rescinded him of his main bully pulpit(illegal aliens) it seems the old man has realized he has to do some serious law enforcement business. Some of which he has clearly ignored (like 3 years of child abuse cases) while in his quest to battle illegal aliens.  (Dec 17, 2011 | post #173)

Idiot politicians always working for special interest groups rather than the people. The bill of rights is what makes the United States great, and these bozo's are wiping their ass with it. It makes no difference the party affiliation. Those politicians are one and the same.  (Dec 17, 2011 | post #218)

Mexico

Mexicans, the most ignorant and brainless people of all.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion Chavo. That however, does not make assumptions "true". Valid arguments and proof is what determines whether something is true or not. I have yet to see them, which is why I'm still hesitant to agree with your findings. I was just watching some of "Chespirito's " videos and "Chavo del Ocho" was one of his bests comedy skits. His impact worlwide is something that it is even felt on television shows like the "Simpons " with the mexican guy dressed like a bumble bee. Clearly in reference to "El Chapulin Colorado". The Mexican shakespeare really influenced a lot of children in Mexico, Latin America and in the world since the early 70's.  (Dec 17, 2011 | post #3496)
