Joe Arpaio: I Love My Job Because I Don't Have to "Go Through All the Legal Stuff" to Put People in Pink Underwear

Joe Arpaio: "I know where Mexico is."
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio really loves his job. The reason: he doesn't have to go through all that pesky "legal stuff" if he wants to put someone in jail.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was live at the Apollo Theater a Mojave County GOP fundraiser/comedy hour over the weekend, and while he didn't end his routine with "I'll be here all week -- be sure to tip your waitress," he should have.

America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" had the GOPers in stitches talking about various issues, including his recent Elvis-themed panty party at Tent City, pink underwear (might be time for some new material), and how much he loves his bosses: Maricopa County taxpayers (who foot the legal bills for the sheriff's (ahem) hilarious jailhouse antics).

Arpaio crows about his history in law enforcement, and continues to bellyache over the fact that immigration policy-makers don't seek his advice when it comes to roundin' up those pesky Messicans.

Joe is truly disgusting, but even worse is the audience.  What a shameful un-American bunch.

Sherrif Joe is one of a few law enforcement individuals who understands a simple fact: "illegal immigrant" = an individual who is not in the United States legally. Being that the "illegal immigrant" has broken our  (and Barrack Hussien Obwama's) Federal Immigration Laws and entered the United States through illegal means, he / she is subject to a crime and as such, he / she is subject to deportation. Is that difficult to understand?

  Mayors need a "civics lesson" said our illustrious sheriff.  "I'm the elected sheriff of Maricopa County, which includes everywhere:  every inch of that county I have responsibility, if I want to take it.  If I want to raid Phoenix or Scottsdale, I'm going to do it, and I've been doing it." 

To repeat, "...I have responsibility, IF I WANT TO TAKE IT."

I couldn't force myself to watch or listen to the continued ad nauseum antics of this old fool.

A few months ago this very same guy said, "There's no color in my hair"....

Gosh, then it just must be the caked oil that looks like hair dying...

The county sheriffs in AZ keep wasting taxpayers' $$'s disregarding the laws, written for others but not them.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEWednesday, September 7, 2011CONTACT:Arizona: Alessandra Soler Meetze, ACLU of Arizona, (602) 773-6006 (office) ameetze@acluaz.orgWashington: Paul Wright, Prison Legal News, (802) 257-1342,pwright@prisonlegalnews.orgPhoenix, AZ – Prison Legal News (PLN), represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona (ACLU) and the law firm of Rosen, Bien & Galvan LLP, today filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a Pinal County Jail policy that prohibits inmates from receiving any magazines, hardcover books or letters of more than one page in length. The lawsuit, which was filed against Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and Pinal County, argues this “postcard-only” policy amounts to censorship and prevents inmates from receiving Prison Legal News, a non- profit monthly journal that reports on corrections news and prisoners’ rights issues.“Publishers have a well-established First Amendment right to send their publications and books to prisoners, and it is unfortunate that rather than respect the rights of publishers to communicate with inmates Sheriff Babeu continues to try to defend the indefensible by banning our books and magazines," said Paul Wright editor of PLN, which distributes approximately 40 book titles including self-help, educational and criminal justice-related publications.According to the complaint, paperback books (limited to 3) are the only exception to the policy and those must be from “an approved publisher.” Over the past six months, jail officials have refused to deliver several PLN publications, including Prison Legal News and other informational brochures, citing “not allowed,” “only 1-page letters allowed,” or “not from an approved publisher,” and have also failed to deliver copies of PLN’s paperback books. The materials provide inmates with information on matters of concern, ranging from addressing their basic health and safety needs to litigating federal civil rights claims.“As implemented by Sheriff Babeu, the postcard-only policy is clearly unconstitutional and serves as an excuse to censor books and magazines for no good reason,” added ACLU of Arizona Legal Director Dan Pochoda. “Jail officials who are serious about lowering recidivism and increasing public safety recognize that cutting inmates off from the outside world and denying them access to periodicals is counterproductive.”PLN is asking the court to order Sheriff Babeu to cease the unconstitutional practice of censoring PLN and limiting inmate mail to short messages on postcards, and to compensate PLN for past and continuing injuries caused by the censorship. The case is Prison Legal News v. Babeu, U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. In addition to Pochoda, PLN also is represented by Ernest Galvan and Kenneth M. Walczak of Rosen, Bien & Galvan, LLP in San Francisco, and Lance Weber, in-house counsel for the non-profit Human Rights Defense Center, the parent organization of Prison Legal News.Human Rights Defense Center (HRDC), founded in 1990 with offices in Brattleboro, Vermont, is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting human rights in U.S. detention facilities. HRDC publishes Prison Legal News, a monthly magazine that includes reports, reviews and analysis of court rulings and news related to prisoners’ rights and criminal justice issues. PLN has approximately 7,000 subscribers nationwide and operates a website (www.prisonlegalnews.org) that includes a comprehensive database of prison and jail-related articles, news reports, court rulings, verdicts, settlements and related documents.The complaint is available on-line at: www.acluaz.org.--American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)of Arizona - Media Relations OfficeP.O.

I hope the inmates get pissed off again and burn the tents down. And to Jason, sorry but I hear the Feds dropped the investigation.

Joe Arpaio proves once again shows what an embarrassment he is to Maricopa County.

The MCSO shurf needs to resign and/or the U.S. Attorney's Office needs to indict this stupid old man. Now.

Dumoudan-there is no question as to eat an illegal immigrant is... (it says it in the title), the argument is that it is not. Possible that MCSO has as a TOP priority to arrest 13 old mexicans in a park for selling ice cream w/o a buisiness lic...! Or to spend thousands of dollars on an operation where they get to arrest/deport the two ladies in the kitchen of McDonalds... So again, not saying it's ok, but sure we have more dangerous people in MC than the lady with a BigMac in her hand...

Where MCSO is the primary law enforcement, the primary contracted law enforcement, or the primary contracted investigative resource.............Well, he certainly should accept responsibility for doing that job.  While old saggy balls claims to be doing the job the Feds won't do, who is doing the job that Arpaio won't do?

They dropped the little crap so he can't plead out when they nail him with the big stuff.

Correction, the feds dropped some of their investigations regarding Arpaio.  Racial profiling and abuse of power investigations are still on going.

I hope his kids and grandkids all marry Mexicans, and when he is old and stuck in a chair (a couple of year to go), he can have a whole bunch of little Mexican kids jumping all over him, and they can even be wearing some pink diapers.... That would just be the greatest performance Karma will ever deliver...! Lol

To my knowledge, the only thing they dropped was the DOJ's unprecedented lawsuit against him, after he adamantly refused over an extended period of time to turn over requested sheriff's office records to them.  The DOJ is required by law to investigate all civil rights complaints against any agency in the country.  The action was dropped only because he finally complied with their request.
