Joe Arpaio's Resignation Sought at Board of Supervisors Meeting Wednesday

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, protector of sexual predators, on blast this Wednesday at the BOS

Call it the revenge of Randy Parraz. The man who organized the end of former state Senate President Russell Pearce's Career is returning -- MacArthur-like -- to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors' auditorium, the place where he was falsely arrested in 2008 by Joe's boys in beige while seeking to hold the MCSO's jefe accountable.

On Wednesday, he'll be back, with members of his new organization, Citizens for a Better Arizona, demanding Arpaio's resignation and asking the Supervisors a significant question regarding Arpaio's bungling of more than 400 sex crimes cases in El Mirage, while the MCSO was responsible for law enforcement there.

"If over 400 uninvestigated sex crimes are not enough for supervisors to join other elected leaders in calling for Sheriff Arpaio's resignation, then citizens want to know WHAT IS THEIR NUMBER?" wonders Parraz in a recent announcement to the CBA faithful. "Is it 500 uninvestigated sex crimes? 750? Over 1,000? Citizens want to know what it will take for members of the Board of Supervisors to break their silence."

And to this end, CBA-ers and other concerned citizens will be attending the next formal BOS meeting on Wednesday, December 14, to push the Supes to act and seeking the placement of an item regarding the matter on the January 25 BOS agenda.

Granted, the Supes can't hand an elected official like Arpaio a pink slip. You'll remember that as recently as 2010, Supervisors Mary Rose Wilcox and Don Stapley called on the feds to consider putting the MCSO into a receivership -- a call that fell on the forever deaf ears of the U.S. Department of Justice.

But at least CBA has altered its sights, directing its firepower at county administrators instead of the the tiny town of Guadalupe and its city council, which CBA was pressuring to pass a resolution supporting Joe's harakiri over the sex crimes scandal.

I commend Parraz and CBA for moving the battle to the Supes. Though I think Arpaio's resignation is about as likely as Newt Gingrich donning a thong and joining the Chippendales' crew, it's worthwhile to apply the screws. At least till the 2012 election begins in earnest.

Below is a letter to current BOS Chairman Andrew Kunasek from Parraz on Joe's scandal du jour, which Parraz circulated this afternoon:

Andrew Kunasek
Maricopa County District 3 Supervisor
301 W. Jefferson, 10th Floor
Phoenix, Arizona 85003


Dear Chairman Kunasek:

On behalf of Citizens for a Better Arizona, we wish to express our sympathy to the hundreds of victims of sex crimes whose calls for help went uninvestigated by Sheriff Arpaio and his deputies.  Over the past two weeks, more information has surfaced that clearly demonstrates that Sheriff Arpaio failed to exercise the type of leadership and judgment we all expect from Maricopa County's top law enforcement official when confronted with these types of heinous acts on children.  

State legislators have already called for Sheriff Arpaio's resignation.  Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl issued a joint statement that read in part, "Victims of abuse not only deserve the respect of law enforcement, but their rights must also be protected throughout the criminal justice process."  Such protections were not granted to the hundreds of victims of sexual assault, rape and molestation.  

As Maricopa County's highest governing authority, we want to know where our elected leaders stand on this issue.  We believe this issue warrants further discussion and action and we ask that you place this issue - over 400 uninvestigated sex crimes - on the agenda for the January 25, 2012, meeting of the Board of Supervisors.  We, Citizens for a Better Arizona, would like an opportunity to discuss this issue in more detail as well as present a resolution calling for Sheriff Arpaio's resignation.  

Members of our organization will attend this week's Board of Supervisors' meeting on Wednesday, December 14th, to formally deliver this request in person and to explain in greater detail why we feel it is important for each of you to take a position on this issue.  
Safety and accountability are two fundamental functions of government and we are counting on you to provide the proper forum where citizens can, in keeping with the Constitution, petition their government and be heard.  

Thank you for considering our request for this issue to be placed on the January 25, 2012, agenda.  We look forward to working with you and the rest of the Board of Supervisors to insure that nothing like this ever happens in the future.  

In Pursuit of a Better Arizona,

Randy Parraz, President

They have been duly served notice, The Entire Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, they should be held in contempt of the people of this county.  They serve themselves, I doubt anything will be done, especially by the likes of Andy Kunasek.  His reputation should be stained with the blood of the victims of Arpaio.  These people are part and parcel of the problem, a government that consists of self serving egoists.  They will be remembered in the annals of history for their grave failures to serve the people of Maricopa County.

Anyone who still supports him now can be accurately labeled anti-constitution:

"The factual findings detailed above provide reasonable cause to believe that MCSO has committed violations of the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Ammendements to the United States Constitution…"

I think the BoS should also consider how much they are paying for redundant LE for the municipalities that already have their own police departments.

I am using a cloak of mystery to keep my identity hidden, but I have been selected by my peers as leader of the  WJASWWRF. We are a very select group of individuals that want Joe to be reelected so we can roam the back alleys and streets in Maricopa county without being detected! We prey on victims from all pay grades but mainly in poor Hispanic districts in the valley. We are pissed that people  actually care what our victims have to say,  we are pissed that they might have their day in court, but mainly we are pissed that when he is voted out of office, a real Sheriff will arrive and we will go to jail. 

So we are seeking support to keep Joe Arpiao in office!

Your Truly, 

AnonymousPresident of,  With Joe As Sheriff We Will Remain Free (WJASWWRF).

Mr. Lemons,

I absolutely love that photo of the MCSO shurf. He needs to be indicted by the feds and quickly.

I will put Mr. Parraz on par with Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, two of America's most revered men. Lincoln ended slavery and Roosevelt ended government corruption.

If I didn't have to work Wednesday, I'd be at the Supes meeting asking Mr. Stapley, my representative, what he plans to do about ending the dictatorial reign of the Flaccid Fool. 

It seems that Republicans are complicit with criminal activity, while Dems are finding their footing and calling for the end of this pathetic excuse we're supposed to call "law-enforcement."

Each time I see the picture of the Flaccid Fool it takes me back to a commercial from days gone by:

"Brylcreem, a little dab will do ya".

But, it really needs to be shampooed out at least once a week. Honestly, Shurf. Try it, you might like it.

It is great to see the media reporting what I (and of course, Stephen Lemons) have been telling everyone all along--  that Joe is no good. Personally, I have posted over 700 media reports, blogs, comments, investigations, interrogatories, and so on; that illustrate the many ways he is a thief, charlatan, media whore and incompetent sheriff. 

It's so sad about the victims in El Mirage (and elsewhere); but if there is anything good about it -- it is showing the man in the focus he deserves. As much pressure as possible, as soon as possible, might actually force the hand of the Department of Justice (the governor?). I for one do not  want to wait until next November until Arpaio is gone. How many will die because of him by then? How much money can he "misuse" (read steal). How many more lives ruined? I say no more -- HELL NO, NO MORE JOE!

"Newt Gingrich donning a thong and joining the Chippendales' crew..."  Well Newt won't do that, but tell Arpaio there would be twice the normal number of cameras and he will suit right up.

Agreed.

Whenever there is a car accident in Mesa, I usually see about 7 or 8 MCSO shurf cars figuring out what happened...

Jason, it was posted in a sense of sarcasm and mirth... simmer down and read through the post again and you will see beyond the first sentence or so....

You are a fucking SICK person if you want a corrupt POS like the MCSO shurf back in office.

The fact that his office ignored more than 400 sex crimes against children merely because of their immigration status and how much money they have in the bank is downright disgusting, inexcusable, and evil.

Do us all a favor and STFU.

I hope you feel the same way about Eric Holder, he killed American citizens with his gun running right here from AZ. Why do you think Arpaio has had such a tough fight? The DOJ has done nothing put hurt us.

Exactly, this clown gives REAL Law Enforcement Officers a bad name and a black eye, the flaccid fool is nothing more than a media whoring 3 ring circus clown in a Sheriff's uniform that he got by being a politician.

Jason, I think it was meant as a joke to portray the flaccid fools incompetence, read it again, the whole thing buddy.

Even then, it still requires about 7 or 8 MCSO shurf cars (which usually means about 14-16 deputies) figuring out what happened, even if the driver(s) have olive (the same color skin as the MCSO shurf) tan, or brown skin.

Usually whenever a car wreck happens, it usually takes about 1 or 2 competent police officers to figure out what happens. But, we're talking about MCSO here...

No disrespect to you or your son, but I don't think a 5 year old has any business on a website such as this one, a have a 6 year old and I have set parental controls on her computer and I watch like a hawk every time she is online, but of course, he is your son and I am not trying to tell you how to raise him, I am just offering my opinion because this is a public forum and it is a lot easier to keep your child away than it is to get everyone to keep it clean so your son can read it.

How sick is it that the victims of the molesters and rapist have to hide in fear when their stalkers walk! The real tastelessness of the joke is that Joe pulled cases from his detectives to run and harass the B.O.S. and the rest of his enemies while victims waited for help that never came! I sure that this is just the tip of the iceberg, once its sorted out  I would not be surprised if a 1000 victims come forward from all of Joe's territories around county, and it we will be us once again that is held liable for his incompetence!

I don't answer to you or your 5 year old son.

You know, I let my eleven year old son,who is a student on the principle's list & attends gifted classes,read some of the articles & comments,here on PNT. That being said,if your 5 year old son can read & comprehend the articles & comments,with some of the complex issues that are discussed on here..... I for one am Goddammed impressed ! .........P.S. I wouldn't let him read the hard copy if I were you,some pretty racey pictures in there,if you know what mean ......BTW,I think we are all sarcastic at times,kinda serves as a stress reliever.

"That's a pretty tasteless joke."  That's coming from a guy who uses curse words on a public form that children read? Jason - clean up your language when posting here.  Or give me your last name and address and I'll bring my 5 year old and he can ask you what you meant by the curse words you used - I'm getting tired of trying to answer his questions regarding your foul language.

That's a pretty tasteless joke. I mean, I know the Old Fool is incompetent and deserves to be locked away being forcibly medicated, but this "joke" is rather sickening.
