Raymond Farinas
Not long after the Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office decided Marty Atencio -- the Army vet who died in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Fourth Avenue Jail in December -- died from "law enforcement subdual" and other causes, MCSO has another dead inmate.

The Feathered Bastard has the information on Raymond Farinas, whose mother says she was told by MCSO that her son choked to death on a peanut butter sandwich.

MCSO later released a statement on Farinas' death, which didn't include anything about choking on sandwiches.

"According to the Sheriff's Jail Crimes Unit, there appeared to be no visible signs of any kind of trauma to Farinas," the statement says. "And while the inmate's family members are making various claims to the media, those claims are in direct contradiction with the medical examiner's office who has relayed to Sheriff's officials that it appears Farina, a 40 year repeat offender, died of natural causes."

Considering what happened with Atencio, and the several stories inmates recently relayed to Paul Rubin about violence at the Durango Jail, it's not hard to believe that just about any inmate death at Arpaio's jails is going to arouse suspicion.

And although MCSO says it "appears" Farina died from natural causes, that doesn't seem to be confirmed, as the Sheriff's Office is already trying to fend off any accusations of brutality leading to his death.

"While an official cause of the June 3, 2012 death of Raymond Manuel Farinas has yet to be released, an investigation shows that there was no physical injury by another inmate or detention officer during the 11 hours Farinas was in custody on weapons charges," the Sheriff's Office statement says.

Based on what Farinas' mother told KPHO, and what Farinas' girlfriend told the Associated Press, their stories aren't exactly matching up with MCSO's.

If it was a real jail and not a concentration camp with Hitler Joe running things I might have a doubt but he is know to be a liar , thief, abuser , killer, showman, and a corrupt sorry excuse for a human being. You people are gullible and naive you don't want to see the truth even when its staring you in the face

they say he choked on a peanut butter sandwich- his mother says he is allergic to peanuts and would have never eaten it -he knew he was getting out on bond soon she had already paid it-so he knew he would be able to eat then-why are you looking for excuses to cover up what they did?? they lie haven't you figured it out yet??I have a list of people he has killed including a unborn child- You think this is the first time??? check this out caught on film again- youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=Ovq3Lt_U-48

This is not a felony prison or maximum security jail - they do not place dangerous or predatory individuals there -most people are awaiting trail-but Joe has already tried and convicted everyone that walks through his door-all these people that support this kind of treatment better hope and pray a loved one never get put in there-even jaywalking , acting different are reasons Joe has arrested people so dont say never-The only thing he know how to do is chase immigrants and that's not very hard to do we all know where they are at. He has 40,000 un served felony warrants and that's not including all the rape cases he has ignored -I really have no idea what he is getting paid for and why they people are allowing him to cost them billions-hes good at putting on shows-even faked his own death threat and had the news people film it- he is out for himself , power and recognition. He has pushed his beliefs on the public. He lies , steals, abused his power. has broken the law in more ways that one. he has destroyed documents to cover his axx. He has killed lots people in his jail. Denied them medical care and used excessive force. He has his own personal publicists that has set up a web site that anytime something happens Joe post a link to this website from his face book page

I have been to both 4TH ave jail and tent city for a very minor offence and they are inhumane bastards all on a power trip. The "officers" dont care about human life and treat everyone like shit. I hope the sheriff and all his officers get what they deserve. Karma is a bitch!

 Was your name Rodriquez?  Just curios, because Pszymeczek is either the stupidest Polish name I've ever seen or your a dump Hispanic who decided to change your name in case you get put back in MCSO custody again.   You could try Pszymeczekquez in order to keep your bonafides.      Just asking....
