"Where there is power, there is no love.  And where there is love, there is no need for power."That was a line in some movie and I just can't remember the name of that movie.  Marty, you have served our country honourably.  For that, I say: THANK YOU!  The MCSO murderers that did this to you will be judged by a fair and just God that also witnessed your murder.  To Marty's family:  I hope that you will eventually find peace, and that tranquil words for your troubled hearts will soothe your hurts and bring justice that is so long overdue already.  There are millions of people all around the world that are praying for you and attempting to seek justice on your behalf.  Please, as hard as it is to do, keep the faith.  God is and always will be on you side.  And he will never leave you nor forsake you.

I sincerely hope every officer involved in the murder of this man is punished to the FULLEST extent of the law.  AND I hope they are put into GENERAL POPULATION especially that bigoted sheriff.  Sheriff Arpaio, how long do you think you'll last in general population, let's say ALL of Hispanic roots????  Karma Sheriff, Karma!  JUSTICE MUST be meted out to you and your officer goon squad!  Karma, Karma, Karma will get you thugs in the end!

RIP Marty, the majority of the people of the nation you so honorably served will push for justice!  Your murderers will not go unpunished.  If we the people can't get every one of them rest assured GOD will....May they burn in hell for your death.May God be with your family in their time of sorrow.Cofins4Terorists is a portion of my mail address.  And this Sheriff and his goon squad are TERRORISTS!

Our soldiers are sacred and we should honor each one.  They have placed themselves in harm's way in order to protect this country and its citizens.  Marty was a soldier and he deserved more than he received.  Today, we have the opportunity to stand tall on behalf of our soldiers by holding the people responsible for his untimely death accountable.  Together, united, we can put an end to this type of treatment by MCSO.  MCSO works for us ... the taxpayers and so does Sheriff Arpaio.  Arpaio states he was elected to serve and protect Arizonans.  He did not protect Marty, a veteran nor did he protect 432 victims of sex crimes whose families are broken too!  Time to come together folks and create the change that is necessary to make sure all families, individuals, Arizonans, residents and children are protected.  The supposed "toughest Sheriff" cannot protect us. Time to get tough and make sure Arpaio is not elected.   In Marty's name, let's go out and vote. My condolensces to Marty's family and God Speed to Marty.  May he rest in peace.  Now let justice be served.

May he rest in Peace...my thoughts and prayers are to his family and loved ones. I know first hand the cruel truth behind Arizonas broken ICE system and the hatred they have for our fellow hispanics... Arpaios cowards are nothing but bullies and trash, with a badge. My Husband Jose Gutierrez was beaten and tased into a coma by Federal agents to the point where he had to have bones removed from his skull to relieve pressure from the brain.... why is it that they ALWAYS claim "he was combative" and the use of a tazer was needed even though they are unarmed and no obvious threat???  It's disgusting, inhumane and sad.  God has a plan for those individuals, trust!  Marty, I am so sorry for what you endured... I'm sorry that your family is left without you... you were a loved man.  My condolences to your family.   You are now an angel up in heaven... again, may you rest in peace.  Wow... I'm getting chills.  When will this end???!!??!!?

RIP Marty. My thoughts are with your family. My hope is that someday the police in Arizona can not murder innocent people because of the color of their skin, their actions, or any other circumstances.Also,Marty thank you for your service to this country.

Nothing more appropriate than the 23rd Psalm:

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:He leadeth me beside the still waters.He restoreth my soul:He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

An open letter from a former U.S. Army soldier.

Dear Mr. Atencio:

Thank you for defending and protecting the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Your service is greatly appreciated. May you rest in peace and our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ watch over you.

We solemnly swear to obtain justice on those detention officers who caused your family such heartache. Justice is so sorely needed and accountability is so badly lacking in our police officers.

SIncerely,

Jason, a former U.S. Army soldier

Today a time to grieve for a father, family member, friend and military veteran. In time to follow: justice. Involved Phoenix Officers will be held accountable, if not indicted for excessive use of force. Involved MCSO employees, promoted.

Amen.  Even if Arpaio doesn't take note, hopefully the Maricopa County voters will, hopefully they'll finally step-up and bring an end to the sickness that Arpaio has brought to our jails.

what a cunt. you know I was divorced. Are you gonna try for any low blows on me too? YPS you are a disgrace to the world, esp airing petty bullshit on a thread that you should have some respect for the victim and his family since I know that some of them are reading these articles and comments.

Now lets sit back and watch you and your candidate exploit this death for everything it's worth.   Everyone loves it when candidates politicize others unfortunate deaths.
