Joe Arpaio Invites Puente to His Office; Puente Flips Him Off

Don't hold your breath, Joe...

I'll give Sheriff Joe Arpaio one thing, the guy is a class-A schmoozer. The almost-octogenarian knows how to butter up his adversaries for public consumption, all while he's plotting to have them arrested, investigated, tailed, or worse. 

Though Arpaio is nominally in law enforcement, this is a classic la cosa nostra move. Smile in your enemy's face, moments before you slit his throat. Like when Joe Pesci's character in Goodfellas goes to attend what he thinks will be his induction ceremony into the mob, only to be executed instead.

The difference is, Arpaio's shuck and jive only fools the gullible. Anyone with a lick of sense knows it's bull. Still, he persists in it, like an ancient, third-rate comedian telling a once-funny joke for the umpteenth time.

Which explains why Sheriff Joe's inviting "the leaders of Puente" to his office for a confab. Guess he's read that the human rights group has planned a demonstration for June 23 at his notorious Tent City, an open-air gulag run by dangerous, racist gangs that Arpaio pretends to be in charge of.

And of course, Arpaio had to Tweet and Facebook about the upcoming demo, though he's got a whole team of PR flunkies to do the actual typing for him.

Arpaio deserves an excruciatingly slow, pain-filled death.

really that's all you can attack? you want to talk about fiscally responsibility when MCSO just got sued for 15 million dollars because it's deputies in the jails can't control their tempers?

Somewhere, I read that tent city is actually in violation of state law and the Governor or the legislature grants OSB a waiver every year.  I thought we are into the Rule of Law and would not flex in our beliefs.

Are for Stauffer or Rowan? Make up your sneaky little mind. You spend most of your facebook time attacking the democratic party because Rowan wasn't favored over Penezone. (wa,wa,wa)   You bitch non-stop how unfair they are to Rowan. If you are in love with Stauffer why are you backing Rowan as well?  Looks like you are sabotaging this election like you did to Terry Goddard so Brewer could win.  You are a disgusting excuse of a person and thats why nobody likes you.

The almost-octogenarian knows how to butter up his adversaries for public consumption. He's an octopus not an octogenerian. He's full of suction cups and ink and is always ready to squirt and make his getaway.

His plan to close tent city is fiscally irresponsible.  Stauffer has no business running for Sheriff while working as a Lieutenant for the City of Scottsdale.  He is in violation of the Hatch Act in doing so.  He is nothing more than another Arpaio.

 I'm serious, Joe needs to be put on the spot: Tell the names and where they were born. If he doesn't know, ask him where he thinks Obama was born. Remember, forgeries and cover-ups could be concealed, Joe has set the standard to check EVERY detail to verify the qualification, anything less would mean there is another reason for his "investigation".

"Numerous presidential candidates", and Joe sent a posse to each of their birth states to make sure they were able to make the claim...

Holding a celebration for 20 years of tent city is a sick idea.
Who celebrates a jail, jail program or incarceration in general?

Strangely this misguided announcement demonstrates the fact
that the sheriff is only interested in publicity.

Would it not have been better to be celebrating the closing of all those
sex assault cases or the celebration of the end of all those outstanding
warrants? 

Celebrating a jail does nothing for the community, especially since that very
jail is responsible for so many law suits and events that negatively impact
the community.

It seems the sheriff will be "celebrating" a losing idea that has been losing
since it's inception. Joe claims the tent city was his idea, but wasn't it in reality
the now recalled Senator Pearce's idea originally?

If so why is the sheriff taking the credit for it?

Actually the Facebook page is Mike Stauffer for Maricopa County Sheriff.

I hope all the members of Puente and everyone they know checks out either votestauffer.com or looks at the Facebook page Mike Stauffer for Sheriff 2012. There are now 4 candidates running for sheriff of Maricopa County including Arpaio. Stauffer is an independent candidate that says politics has no place in the sheriff's office. He has a plan to CLOSE TENT CITY immediately and he has the plan to do it with no extra cost to the taxpayers. He has a master's degree in organizational management that will aid him greatly as he reforms the rat's nest that is MCSO. Most of all vote!!
