Where is the outrage, the disgust, the anger? What the hell is the matter with people in this county?
After watching the report above from KPHO Channel 5's investigative team of reporter Morgan Loew and producer Gilbert Zermeno, known to one and all as "Z," I'm so enraged that I could spit bile at the next airplane that passes overhead, and hit it.
Which is one of the highest compliments that I can pay another journalist. If you missed last night's newscast, Loew and Zermeno interviewed Sabrina Morrison, the brave woman who was raped by her uncle repeatedly, even impregnated by him, while Sheriff Joe Arpaio's agency dawdled.
All that was necessary was for the investigator assigned to the case to obtain a blood sample from Morrison's now-convicted uncle. But sheriff's office higher-ups ordered the detective to prioritize, for instance, a mortgage fraud case in Fountain Hills. You know, the burg where Joe dwells?
I discussed this colossal case of MCSO neglect in a recent blog item, where I published an internal MCSO memo from the detective in question.
