Joe Arpaio, Serial Racist, Says No to Melendres Monitor, But Agrees Deputies Need Re-Training

Message to Judge Snow: this guy needs discipline, and lots of it...

If a judge-appointed monitor is good enough to make the New York City Police Department reform its "stop and frisk" policy, then a monitor should do the trick for Maricopa County's serial racist Sheriff Joe Arpaio in the ACLU's big civil rights case Melendres v. Arpaio.

In May, federal Judge G. Murray Snow enjoined Arpaio's deputy dawgs from racial profiling Latinos. He later ordered that both parties in Melendres come up with a proposed consent decree, detailing how the court's order will be implemented.

Today was the deadline for that proposal, so both the sheriff's mouthpiece Tim Casey and the ACLU have jointly filed a status report on their negotiations, and a 78-page proposed order, with the language opposed by the MCSO in red.

And there's a lot of red, because the MCSO opposes outright nine out of the 12 proposals from the plaintiffs, and offers counter-proposals on the rest.

"Defendants oppose the appointment of a monitor," writes Casey at one point. "If the Court were to appoint a monitor, the role and authority of such monitor must be reconciled so that the monitor's role does not supplant the elected Sheriff's authority under the Arizona Constitution and Arizona statute.

"Therefore, if the Court were to appoint a monitor, the role and authority of such monitor should be based on the terms proposed by the Defendants."

Read the parties' joint report to Judge Snow regarding consent decree negotiations.

Read the 78-page proposed consent order, with objections from Joe's lawyer in red.

In other words, if Arpaio's going to have a babysitter, then he wants to be able to tell him or her what to do. Casey is full of it here, as usual. Monitors are common practice in such civil rights cases involving cops.

As far as the "sheriff's authority" goes, he is not a king and Maricopa County is subject to the U.S. Constitution.

And who interprets the U.S. Constitution? Federal judges. Duh.

The MCSO is also against certain limits on the questioning of passengers in vehicles, and opposes documenting the race, ethnicity and gender of the driver and any passengers during traffic stops.

Other points of contention include the ACLU's proposals for a computerized database aimed at catching "problematic behavior" by deputies, the close supervision of deputies by supervisors, and the creation of a community advisory board and more outreach to Latinos.

After all, why would the MCSO want to improve its relations with Latinos when its spent the last five or six years alienating them?

Any word from the NT's resident MCSO employee on this?  Or is he just waiting for a messenger to attack again?


Seems the BOS has yet to approve a dime of funding for the Clown Sheriff's appeal..  Maybe Joke can stand on a corner and sell pencils to pay for it!  Sand's would have been his organ grinder's monkey, but even Sands left the Joker!

Considering that Kris Kobach trained the MCSO Clown Circus using material that was NOT based on the law, it's no wonder they need to be retrained!


And it ALL started with MCSO lost their 287(g) for violating the rules and being dirtbags!

MCSO will have a monitor.  Maybe we can find out what happened to the Joker when he tripped on the sidewalk and hid from the public for 3 months.

I live in Maricopa County and have been here since before Joe was elected. I think that its important to remember that this is not Joe's first brush with the law. He failed to implement any changes after the first incident and about the only thing that happened is that the sheriff was seen on a number of occasions saying that the department does not racially profile. It was clear, however, if you read the court documents that many in the department were indeed racially profiling. The use of a monitor is not something that was recommended as a remedy to a first infraction but has come after problems were clearly pointed out and after nothing was done even to attempt to understand or to define the nature of the problems that were reported. I support the use of a monitor. I don't think anything will change without one. If Joe disagrees with the monitor he should have recourse to go to the courts like anyone else who has a brush with the law. I do believe that in addition to showing a remarkable ability to communicate the legal questions that are involved that the judge has shown something that often is lacking in other proceedings, that is wisdom. Thank you U.S. District Judge Murray Snow I have no doubt that your decision will show justice tempered with wisdom.

CBS 5 reported this as "New Developements between the battle of Joe Arpaio and the Department of Justice" which shows how ignorant they are on the issues.  NBC 12 made it sound like  both sides agreed to this. Nothing is farther from the truth.

Why am I not surprised the hateful old man opposes a monitor?

The monitor is the only thing standing between sanity and complete and utter lawlessness.

Judge Snow and the DOJ need to shove a monitor up the Old Fool's ass. Now.

This MOTHER FUCKER BOULDER HEAD, have 2 understand that is not up 2 him to DICTATE what it should B done. Judge Snow has 2 "bitch slap him" with a CONCLUSIVE RULING, then the POS can shove his propositions up his fetid hole, otherwise the mother fucker is just going 2 ignore anything short of that. Make him BITCH AND WHINE  but at the end he HAS TO COMPLY.

Arpaio agreed to a minimal amount of retraining so he can blame ICE for his racial profiling. Never mind the training the tax payers paid Kris Kobach for.  Arpaio's cynical attempts to (wink, wink) not racially profile or enforce immigration are designed for fools to believe in. Just like his pink underwear in spanish, the crosses in the desert and the work-site raids.  It's a "fuck you" to the people, the judge and all is done to please his racist tea-bagger base.

Very well put.

The "Lawlessness" conducted by Arpaio, and his ring, Arpaio calls "Joe'sLaw".

Arpaio feel's he is above the "Laws of the Land."

The U.S. Constiutution dosen't apply to this Racist "Tyrant" that has aquired so much Power including hundreds of Constitution Trashing Thermal viewing Spy Drones, with laser listening warrantlessly scanning, and eaves dropping  "We the People" inside our Homes, he feels his is the King of Arizona.

Fact is the Feds are Arpaio's "Partners in Crime".

Hopefully one day soon Arpaio, and the Feds will be able to shove thier  un-constitutional fleet of spying drones where they belong

Arpaio is nothing but an "Abuse of Power"  but the Feds can't control the Monster they are in bed with!
