MCSO
Kevin Gerster has been charged with aggravated assault for allegedly beating up on two inmates.
Yesterday, we told you about two of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's detention officers facing aggravated assault charges for allegedly roughing up two inmates. If you missed it, click here.

Arpaio showed video of the assaults at a press conference yesterday afternoon -- they're pretty wild.

We wouldn't want to deprive you of witnessing what's been goin' on in Joe's jails, so, check out the video of the officers beating up on inmates after the jump -- compliments of ABC 15.

Hey you old pig Arpaio, hire the thirty people you need to review all the tapes, why do you even have them if you don't review them. And fire every damn worthless fatass detention officer that is on those videos. There are at least six or seven officers who watched these assholes beat up these psych patients and did nothing to stop them. You worthless criminal so-called sheriff. You belong in jail with the majority of your criminal gang that posses as law enforcement officers!

This kind of behavior is the end result of Arpaio's strutting, posing and policy-making. When you deliberately set out to sell yourself as "America's Toughest Sheriff" rather than fulfill mandated responsibilities to protect the public and to keep the inmates in your jails safe, when you appoint sycophants and intriguers to your command staff, when you condone illegal behavior on the part of your detention officers, this is what you get. This will cost AZ taxpayers a lot of money.

Wow Bozo Joe, has sure got his priorities right, spend our tax dollars on needless extras such as vehicles, buses, and God only knows what other crap that he is covering up, as opposed to hiring someone minimum wage to monitor video surveillance cameras that would ensure dirt bags on power trips that have no business in this setting, continue to take advantage of the mentally challenged individuals, way to go Bozo Joe! The master of exaggeration, hirer 30 people to monitor video, common really! I don't think so! Get a grip Mr. I know whats good for Arizona!

I can't believe he didn't call this story politically motivated and blame Obama.

The impression I get from watching the video is what we are seeing may just be the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. This incident may be an indication of much worse stuff that has been swept away under the reign of the Flaccid Fool. It may be that now that criminal charges are being filed in this case some witnesses to other cases may now want to save their collective asses. There may be a line of detention employees at MCSO Internal Affairs. By the way, since when did MCSO ever have an active IA unit, I wonder? It has apparently been nothing more than 'window dressing' prior to the DOJ and grand jury investigations. Suddenly, it seems, MCSO is concerned about obeying the very laws they are hired to enforce. Go figure. And pearce says he wants to be shurf....

I'm surprised Bozo Joe Arpaio didn't promote the pig.
