Joe Arpaio on Sal Reza Conviction: "It's About Time." Says Protest Was Publicity Stunt

Immigration activist Sal Reza
Immigration activist Sal Reza was convicted last week of failing to follow police orders during a protest last year over Arizona's controversial immigration law, SB 1070, and according to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, "it's about time" Reza's convicted.

"These activists willfully disregarded the law causing a severe disruption to the sheriff's office," Arpaio says. "This office will not tolerate acts of civil disobedience."

Arpaio considers the demonstration -- during which Reza and several other activists formed a human chain to keep MCSO deputies from entering the Fourth Avenue Jail during protests in July of 2010 -- to be nothing more than a publicity stunt used by the demonstrators to generate national attention.

"The protest was staged to receive national publicity from virtually every media outlet as well as to cause disorder to Sheriff Arpaio's crime suppression operations being conducted on that July day," the MCSO says in a press release.

Speaking of publicity stunts, below you'll find a list of Arpaio's latest acts of media slutiness:

Since early July, Arpaio has invited the media to witness a duet with an Elvis impersonator, introduced a Spanish-language version of his infamous pink undies to prove he's not a racist, spared the city of Phoenix the humiliation of having his female chain-gang smile for the international press at Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, and challenged "any reporter" to a hotdog eating contest.

For the record, America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" wimped out when we accepted his hotdog challenge.

Again, the aforementioned antics all happened in roughly the last month. Arpaio's been running the show at the MCSO for nearly 20 years -- these are just the most recent stunts in the sheriff's long career as a publicity stuntman.

Stay tuned for his most recent publicity stunt -- it involves a dead dog and the exploitation of inmate labor.

In many ways, I wish Reza wasn't arrested. It's only what he wants. Look at the old fart in the above picture. He's got nothing else to do, and this crap of baiting the Sheriff is just a hobby of his. He's just another corrosive element in the ethnic interest LA RAZA group. He's gonna sit in jail, bullshit with the deputies, and watch TV while getting three square a day. In this sense, I do think Arpaio is wasting taxpayer money. What a drag, that we have so many worthless people in power in this country, that allow the Reza's, Grijalva's, Garcia's,etc. to screw with our system and take advantage of it. If an American pulled this crap in Mexico, well, an Americans couldn't do this in Mexico, so it's a moot point. North American Union, with Narco State South, what a nightmare.

EVEN IF IRAQ WOULD  HAVE BEEN WAR FOR OIL ONLY,  VETERANS WOULDN'T NEVER EVER HAVE TO BE HOMELESS PEOPLE THE WAY THEY ARE AND NOR WOULD OUR PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE ALLOVER THE PLACE THE WAY THEY DO TO VERY TODAY(never ending “war on terror” story). BECAUSE EVEN IF WAR WAS FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY, MONEY SHOULD BE USED  FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS AND NOT WHAT THE CASE IS OR AGAINST WHITES(to destroy us allover the world) !!! You don't really proof for 911, just put  your sht together in your heads...THIS IS PLENTY ENOUGH TO HAVE O(B)SAMA  INDICTED FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE AMERICAN HUMANITY TOGETHER WITH HIS ZIONIST MASTERS) !!!

DO WE NEED MORE PROOFS TO INDICT OBAMA AND BUSH ADMINISTRATION FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY !!?

1)NO, THEY ARE CLEARLY GUILTY AS OIL WAR NEVER EVER WAS REAL ISSUE IN GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITES. REAL ISSUE  ARE FACTS OR WHAT WE WITNESS TODAY WHEN VETERANS  ARE HOMELESS, JOBLESS, KILLED, ETC.

2)NO, AS 911 ALONE AS WELL AS ACTIONS IMPOSED AGAINST  WHITES IN USA (as well worldwide) ARE CLEARLY INDICATING ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY

3)YESS AS JUST YESTERDAY(for over 15 years to very yesterday), WE (news/media = vacuum world of lies) WERE TELLING YOU THAT UNEMPLOYMENT WAS AT 10% WHILE TODAY ONE IS AT 50% (HOW COME NO ONE QUESTION JOURNALISM LIKE THIS OR  WHAT IS WORLD OF LIES AND DEMENTIA)!

4)I AGREE WITH FIRST TWO ANSWERS ABOVE.  IT IS TIME TO PRESS CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST BOTH ADMINISTRATIONS DUE TO ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY FOR THE SAKE(SAFETY) OF US AND OUR CHILDREN(DO NOT TURN THEM IN WHITE REFUGEES ON PLANET APES OR WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE WHEN VISITING ABOVE PAGES) !!!

It's about time Dennis Burke got off his ass and actually prosecuted Arpaio for his corruption.

Seems to me the Flaccid Fool misspent $100 million. He's also forgotten about the $50 million in legal fees to defend his fat corrupt ass.He's forgotten about the $43 million in settlements and payouts. He's forgotten about the dozens of inmates killed, maimed, and injured in his Amnesty International-condemned jails.

I have nothing but hatred for the FF of MCSO and his mentally sick SS goon squads. Come and get me Joe. I dare you.

"These activists willfully disregarded the law causing a severe disruption to the sheriff's office," Arpaio says. "This office will not tolerate acts of civil disobedience."

 I say;

"This "Sheriff" willfully disregards the law, causing a severe disruption to the community.","The community should NOT tolerate the "Sheriffs" acts of violence, murder, lies & corruption."

I think the shurf forgot to mention the arrest of Mr. Reza the following day. When Mr. Reza was standing by himself in a parking lot across the street from any action minding his own business, when MCSO goons ran across the street, without reasonable suspicion or probable cause, and falsely arrested Mr. Reza for a trumped up charge of 'Contempt of MCSO'. Mr. Reza was held, then bonded, and charges were dismissed.

Mr. Reza has filed a civil action for that false arrest.

I guess the Old Asshole forgot about that false arrest of Mr. Reza.

Some sheriff we have in Maricopa County, eh?

Funny thing that Arpaio says it's about time for Reza to get convicted.....when HE was just fined 650,000 for campaign violations,   Has the senile goat forgotten that we can all read?  It's good enough for him but not good enough for anybody else?  This fat old slob needs to go.

"These activists willfully disregarded the law causing a severe disruption to the sheriff's office," Arpaio says. "This office will not tolerate acts of civil disobedience." Well, as the old adage goes, it takes one in the business of willfully disregarding the law to know another like minded offender. The only thing we see here from Arpaio is, he was out staged that day which is why he said the following..."The protest was staged to receive national publicity from virtually every media outlet as well as to cause disorder to Sheriff Arpaio's crime suppression operations being conducted on that July day," the MCSO says in a press release. Yet Arpaio throws his own panty throwing party for national attention while,  400+ children who were molested wait in fear because their molester is still loose. While $99.5 million of your tax money remains strangely missing. While 40,000+ felony warrants sit in storage.And although I already know I will be "chastised" by at least one commenter on here, it is truly awesome as the campaign manager to Police Lieutenant Mike Stauffer, Joe's only opponent for next year, just how many of you are ready to vote Arpaio out of office in 2012. Thank you!As is indicated on a daily basis, Arpaio's approval rating has and is plummeting rapidly. Keep it up, let's bring professionalism, sanity, and real law enforcement back to Maricopa County. Do you really want a big, out of control, and entitled government spender in our sheriffs office? If we can rid our selves of just one, who knows we might be on a roll, at least in AZ. Although, we might just be able to rid ourselves of  three soon, Thomas, Pierce, and Arpaio a true homogeneous trio of corruption. What do you say?  I hope all of you at least take a few minutes to visit Lt. Stauffer's FB page www.facebook.com/Mike4Sheriff and his website www.votestauffer.com. IT'S TIME!

Wanna know what most Americans want West K? It's easy. Just read thousands of immigration blogs and you'll get it. They want a safe community, State, Country, free of drug lords, free of gangs, free of every type of criminality, much of which, comes right out of Mexico, because our government doesn't even bother to find out who come here.

Most Americans also want an end to illegal immigration and the parallel society it has created, one legitimate, one able to do anything it wants. Is that too much for citizens to ask? You people are clueless to the bigger issue, because of your fanatical focus on personalities. I would bet anyone here, Parraz the community organizer, Chad Snow, anyone, that if Arpaio was replaced, you folks would soon be discontented with the next authority as soo as he/she would crack down on illegal immigration and people like Reza, etc. How come Reza doesn't go and protest all the inequality and crime in Mexico?

FormerRepublican

YOUR PRODUCTS:  You keep after Stauffer's campaign manager and now you're looking rather silly.  I'm looking at West K's comment and he says that the warrants are in storage.  He doesn't say STORAGE FACILITY.  He just says they are being stored.  If you are adult enough to post and you have opinions, that's fine.  But you seem to be in attack mode on West K and it's frankly irritating to the rest of us who wish to discuss real issues.  Weren't you the one complaining about the use of the word "guard" in another article just to fiind out that it was not used by Lt. Stauffer?  Now you're challenging West K to explain where a storage facility is when he just says warrants are in storage?  Can you give us all a break here and not personally attack other posters?  It seems inappropriate and it's totally obvious.

Who is Pierce?

It is ironic that in the last thread you were giving grammar and punctuation lessons after reading this train wreck of a comment. This POS comment is riddled with run on sentences, fragmented sentences, conjunctions beginning sentences, improper punctuation, and incorrect spelling.

Stauffer is on the street, in the neighborhoods, on the job; why doesn't he do something about those 40,000 warrants?

Hopefully we get a viable candidate to run against Arpaio, otherwise we are in for another four years of the same.

YPS:  I have a notion that you really are interested in change.  You state you're not an Arpaio fan.  Sounds like you have some knowledge of the corruption that has gone on within the MCSO.  We share some basic dislikes of the system.  I did get a chance to speak with the candidate Stauffer and I really found him to be worthy of my vote.  I hope before you make up your mind you get a chance to meet and talk with him, because it seems like (from what comments I've read here) that your opinion of him got off to a bad start.  There are a lot of MCSO employees wondering what will happen in 2012, but I hope we all share the notion that change is very necessary.  Just a thought.

I paid $22.85 for an iPhone 4-32GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $674 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.

Well, Duh! ALL demonstrations and public protests are attempts to shape public opinion. That's why people picket and march in public rather than in their living rooms.

It's true that you are an anti-white racist of some kind.

Yet, you have against me. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't bug me at all. Why? Because I know, that racism goes in all kinds of directions, not just white vs. everyone else. That IS bullshit.

Bobby: I have provided the AP news article on your comment. If you read carefully you will see the Feds got what they were looking for after Arpaio gave up!

"The request was part of a deal between the U.S. Department of Justice and Arpaio's office in early June to settle the lawsuit. The lawsuit was to be dismissed within 60 days if Arpaio's office complied with the deal.The lawsuit was filed after federal authorities complained that Arpaio's office didn't fully cooperate with a request for records and access to jails and employees.Department of Justice lawyers say in court papers filed Monday that the sheriff's office has cooperated since the lawsuit was filed.Still, they also say the civil rights investigation is continuing."Let's elect a new sheriff in 2012 - Police Lt. Mike Stauffer

ZZZZZ,zzzzzzzZZZZZZZZ, how many years have people been saying that Arpaio is going to be fired,etc. In fact, just a week or so ago, the Feds dropped the charges against him. Couldn't find anything, no matter how hard they looked.

http://www.azcentral.com/news/...FTA- "Those who were tried were among more than 40 people arrested at the Fourth Avenue Jail last year. The remainder of those arrested had charges against them thrown out or dismissed."

Oh, no, you first. You claim that ALL the participants were guilty. Please provide proof of that. I think you will find it hard to do in light of all the charges that have been dropped thus far, but go ahead, give it a shot!
