Joe Arpaio Makes Eating at McDonald's Risky Business for Deputies

Next time you're at McDonald's, just ask for the MCSO special.

​If you work for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, you probably won't be tempted to eat at McDonald's anytime soon -- because your boss, Joe Arpaio, claims doing so might be a risk to your health.

But not for the usual reasons.

Arpaio issued a warning today to all MCSO employees to use caution when dining under the golden arches following an incident involving one of his deputies and some employees at a Mesa McDonald's yesterday.



According to the sheriff, a uniformed MCSO deputy was at a McDonald's at 1460 West Southern Avenue when some of the employees identified him as a sheriff's deputy and started calling him -- and Arpaio -- a (probably "fucking") racist.

Turns out, that same McDonalds was the target of an employer-sanctions investigation by the Sheriff's Office on March 26, 2010, where four illegal immigrants were arrested for ID theft. Three other nearby McDonald's were also tied into that same investigation, where 13 other illegal aliens were arrested.

The deputy in yesterday's incident refused to take his food from the disgruntled employees and reported the incident to Arpaio and McDonald's corporate headquarters.

Arpaio's overreaction is as follows:

"I am not asking my employees to avoid McDonalds completely," Arpaio says. "But I
do think that anytime one of them is in uniform or driving a marked vehicle, out of an
abundance of caution, he or she should use some discretion when deciding where to eat."

We got news for ya, Joe: there are probably Hispanics who hate your guts in every kitchen in Maricopa County -- these McDonald's employees just had the balls to say it.

....One day, I saw Sheriff Joe at the McDonald's at 40th Street and Thomas, alone. He was in front of me and order a cup of coffee. When he went to the sugar and cream counter, I asked him a couple of question, and actually follow him to the black Crown Victoria he was driving....I identified myself as a mexican, and he change his face when I asked the incredible chapters that he has been written......"I am doing my job......I was elected to do it...", he said.... I never going to forget the "dark light" in his eyes, when I said "I am mexican"....

Hey look... Joe found a way to get himself in the news again, how cute!

Sure, the employees of McDonald's were being pricks, but Joe just saw this as a way to further inflame tempers. What a douche.

Of course the employees at this particular McDonalds are going to think that the MCSO shurf and his goon squads are racists. They raided this McDonalds on one of the Flaccid Fool's "sweeps" for illegals.

I can understand why the deputy was upset. He is, technically, a customer, and in business, the customer is always right. However, I don't believe that this deputy, in particular, is a racist. After all, there are professionals that want to do their job at MCSO.

There are lots of people, including myself, that disagree with the MCSO shurf's policies on illegal immigration. I agree that the way the McDonalds employees did not conduct themselves professionally, and, unfortunately, have to side with the Flaccid Fool deputy on this incident.

Not surprised it was raided, for 5 years there has been 100% Mexican employees who speak little English in that particular McDonald's. It just seems ridiculous that something as Americana as McDonald's would not employ one single white or black person.

arpaio and his enablers racism, bigotry and hate-driven actions, have put his officers at risk. When are they going to wake up and realize it isn't the restaurant and service workers that have created harm but when a sheriff drives state and national policy that destroys peoples lives, their families and children just what does one expect to happen? Look no farther then Egypt for your answer.

Only Arpaio would broadcast an employee oriented warning to the press. If he were concerned about his employees, it would be an internal communication.

I have no problem with illegal aliens being deported when caught. My complaint with Arpaio is his stunning ineffectiveness at anything law-enforcement related. The man has been a disaster for the taxpayers of this county and couldn't figure out how to fight crime if crime was a paper bag and he was a blow torch.

Local law enforcement should be focused on major crimes and criminals. That will mean Mexican gangs, drug smugglers, kidnappers, rapists, human smugglers, all of the violent and high-dollar criminals. But all Nickle Bag has ever cared about is targeting the low hanging fruit and delivering his dog and pony shows for the voters.

No one should enter this country illegally. Everyone who does deserves punishment. But like any other problem, priorities must be set, resources applied where they do the most good.

If Arpaio understood that one simple fact he'd stand a chance of being a halfway decent manager of a major law enforcement agency.

Instead of a taxpayer gouging, prisoner killing, dog killing, house burning, political enemies List keeping incompetent jackass.

I think Arpaio should be thinking about his defense, not telling grown men and women where to eat. Just another "Hey, everybody! Look at all-important me! And lookie over there - it's a Messican! I'm going to go hassle him!" He is such a pathetic, sorry little asshole.

I'll tell you what; if any MCSO Deputy dressed in uniform goes to ANY.. ANY restaurant where the cooks can see who you are, you're asking for an extra serving of "Special Sauce" .. not a threat, a reality. Check this story to see what I mean. http://alturl.com/oshwi

Again the ultra left media raises it's ugly head and exposes it's unbridled bias. Thanks for letting me know that McDonald's hires illegal aliens, now my family and I will stop eating there. I think Sheriff Joe should run for Mayor, heck why stop there why not President!

I'm a relatively new James King fan. Your MCSO stories have been spot on.You may be on to the MCSO "special" thing at McDonalds.There are many "supporters" of Arpaio throughout the valley that offer MCSO "specials" ...we just don't all get the same treatment.Many car washes here in the valley treat the "finest" quite nicely and never get raided. Many bars and restaurants are "hosts" to the finest and don't get raided.Gee...do you suppose there is any correlation here?

Too bad I am not working at McDonalds when those fat wanna be cop deputies came in. I'd surely "load them up" and give them a little something else for their trouble.They'd be shitting through a fine screen for a week after my fine service.I think the Sheriff is trying to direct his supporters to another restaurant...perhaps one owned by a friend or relative? Why WOULDN'T a restaurant who was targeted by these idiot wanna be's react not so nicely when these same buttholes come in to eat? I actually applaud the McDonalds staff for having the balls to stand down the deputy.Bravo!

Mr. King, has this incident actually been validated or is this just another story coming from the Flaccid Fool and the public is supposed to believe it?

You may want to call MCSO and ask for specifics, such as date, time, and any and all MCSO employees involved, by name and badge identifier. The chances are that information won't be released, therefore it can't be validated and it's nothing more than some deputy who shot himself in the lower back to look good for his sheriff, who later fired his lying ass.

Just a thought...

Why doesn't the McDonald's corporation and the Beef Trust sue Arpaio to show him a lesson about--just like what happened to Opra Winfrey. Unlike Opra, maybe Arpaio won't win and they can shut him down.

so does this mean that all Mexicans in Arizona will not be dialing 911 in the future anymore saving tax payers money if they ever have an emergency at home or a robbery at that same McDonalds and ask the cops to help save them and to catch and save them from bad guys with guns? without border patrol agents alot of them would be lost and die in the desert. they should be a bit more respectful and nice to us nice rich white anglo Americans and police officers and border patrol. we bail them out alot when they have troubles they cant handle. besides you get more with honey than you do with vinegar. respect for respect.if your mean and rude to cops and anglos or whites bad karma could come after you. but im pretty sure Mexicans dont know anything about bad karma. its better to be loving nice polite and respectful if you want to go far in life. being mean and rude is not Gods way.

Well, since you have no way of knowing if the health cards of the workers are really theirs, or even if they have them, do you really wanna eat at a McDonald's in this town anyway?

Yes, I'd like a Big Mac and an order of hepatitis to go.

seems to me if you dont like Americans or waiting on Americans you probably should not work at McDonalds waiting on Americans. just leave America and go back to where ever it is you came from if you don't like the people here. seems real simple to me. i would not live some where i was not wanted. i would move away from that place and find a better life elsewhere.

Far as I know, freedom of speech is still legal in Maricopa County and Arizona. Granted not very professional of the McDonald's employee's to make a statement like this while serving the public.

It sounds like the deputy assumed that his food had been tainted without any proof.

Maybe is was a personal problem with the deputy that didn't like hearing the truth about MCSO, you know, as in, if it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, etc, etc...

How does it come about that scum such as you see here on Phoenix Times operate all these free weeklies, like in Phx and Tucson (not to mention the rest of the controlled US media!)? Personally I boycott any business that advertises in them.

ps - McDonalds and other restaurants don't need MCSO's business. As a stockholder in McDonalds, I would rather see our stock prices go down then to cater to these racists and bigots.

"It's" is a contraction used for "it is" - it is not a possessive, nimrod. You obviously paid as much attention in your English classes as you did in history and civics. But that's what I would expect from someone who worships Arpaio.

That is a good point. It is about time for Arpaio to start in on the poor me attitude. We have not seen one of those for a couple months.

joe is old. fire him all you want. he will still be around getting his retirement pay till he is dead. how do you know another one of joe cop doesn't exist out there? joe is not the only cop out there who feels the same way as he does. Satan never sleeps! there will always be guys like joe in the world till the end of time.

Fuck it, we can carry guns where ever we want now.. We'll just turn to vigilante justice.. keep the cops, they complicate things anyway. Joby, I truly hope yours is a satirical comment.. as it would be very asinine to invoke the name of "god" after a statement like that, after all, it is the bible that preaches empathy to your fellow man right? Jesus, what am I saying, Christians don't know empathy from apathy.Also if you think the police are there for your protection rather than a tool for social control, you're an idiot, and a slave to the police state.

But then again Mexicans are not the most intelligent race of people on earth so why would they move away. they love to suffer and work low pay jobs and have many many babies and kids. they get what they ask for by having to many kids and being an ignorant uneducated race of people who only want to do low pay field fruit picker stoop labor for the white man the rest of their miserable lives. im talking about Mexicans from Mexico not Mexican American Chicanos. Mexican Americans Aztecs are smart like i am. alot of us old time Chicanos do not want these people here either.

Because, lightning child, there are many people in the Valley and elsewhere who realize that the mainstream media has been the lap dog of power hungry not-so-crypto fascists such as Arapio. Therefore they read this publication to get a better understanding of the corruption, misfeasance and malfeasance that characterizes government in Maricopa County and on the state level. You, nimrod, do the Newtimes a great service every time you enter their website, because they can tell potential advertisers that they had that many online visitors, thereby creating an opportunity for them to market their products, goods and services. So, Goober, boycott away, since you will only purchase from the Dollar Store and swap meets anyway ... who cares?

Tommy Collins

Yes, I think that's where I was headed, Mr. King.... I think it's very likely he made this up as he has made up federal law in days not too distant... I am hoping someone will challenge him to validate the information that this actually occurred....

Tommy Collins
Tommy Collins

I just think it's important to validate that such an incident actually occurred. Please remember, this is coming from the Wrinkle Winkle of MCSO. The guy who hasn't met a lie he doesn't like.

If the incident can't be validated it likely didn't happen. In which case it would appear to be nothing more than just another cheap media grab by the Geriatric Goon from MCSO.

Daily, my name is not Tom. You must be thinking of someone else. In any case if you have directed your 'advice' toward me, don't waste any more effort. I have no need to mellow out and I certainly have no intent to take your 'advice' and go to church and find God. I didn't know (s)he was missing, actually, but I will take your word for it. Regarding this latest media blurb by the MCSO Geriatric Goon, it's just more mush he is spewing...
