Joe Arpaio: "Illegal Aliens" Keep Trying to Run Away, So All Deputies Get Automatic Weapons

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for joefatass.jpg
Sheriff Joe Arpaio put out a press release today, in part explaining the reason that every MCSO deputy will be getting an automatic weapon.

"More and more illegal aliens are attempting to escape which places my deputies in dangerous positions," Arpaio's press release says. "In the near future I will be issuing automatic weapons for all my deputies."

The Sheriff's Office points to a pair of "short vehicle chases through the desert" as evidence of the escaping illegal immigrants.

In one case, the MCSO says deputies tried to go after a speeding car, but that car ended up going even faster, then going off-road, through a fence, and into some desert area in the southeast Valley.

About a mile after the tires went flat, all eight people in the car bailed, but they were caught.

In the other instance, Human Smuggling Unit detectives caught some guys in the act, loading up a car with marijuana. After a chase that ended "a short distance later," MCSO says six people were eventually arrested, and the Valley's now short 120.5 pounds of weed.

Well, the buck stops here. Auto weapons for everyone.

Note to self: don't get a speeding ticket in Fountain Hills.

Tommy Collins comments reference this story are the only reasonable remarks out of 157 comments made.  You are right Tommy, this press release was unnecessary.  It's silly that the purchase of rifles had to be tied to "illegal immigration".  He obviously did it to stir the pot, and based on the irrational remarks, it seems to be working.

the part that will be the most telling as to Joe's boys will be who wants them. any cop who is serious about public safety will not want a full auto weapon. if the cop is serious about his job and public safety you should be able to tell just by his weapon preference's. a man who wants to carry a desert eagle .50  is not a guy who is concerned with accuracy or safety. that is a gun that will recoil hard enough that his shots will be all over the place if he has to use it. that is why most cops carry 9mm's or .40's. they are more controllable and manageable weapons. full auto are hitting everything around your target unless you are almost on top of your target. the people who will want the full auto are the ones trying to look like hardasses.....not real cops.

I wonder if Supreme Commander in Chief Jan Brewer will direct Major General Ricky Adams to look into any allegations of sexual misconduct by Babeu.  Now that Babeu is eyeing to replace her, it would be wise of her to take him out.   Lately she has been a little miffed with Babeu.    

 

Babeu was known for his short arm inspections of his studs, I mean troops.

So now the highly unstable thugs who work for Arizona's own home grown terrorist cell, the MCSO will have the ability to spray an entire crowd with automatic weapons fire. Wonder how much "Collateral Damage" will occur and how many innocent people will die.

Why not place a battery of 155 howitzer at Arpaio's headquarters to provide cover for his deputies in the field.  With GPS technology his deputies can "fire for effect" on the initial solvo.  If Joe desires to play Army, I'm sure Babeu would be happy to provide Joe with some extensive hands on training.  No to para-military.

here's what's funny, all the people cheering this move think it will make things safer, WRONG. if you have limited or no gun experience, you will think this a wise move, i have extensive fire-arms experience as do some others who post here. let me explain it to you. cops have to qualify with their sidearms, that does not make them excellent shots, it just means they made the minimal requirements to carry a sidearm (go ahead, ask a cop) and since they are not shooting daily, this is a skill that deteriorates. like any skill or ability, you need to practice daily to stay in trim. since most of these officers are not competitive shooters to begin with, minimal requirements dont cut it. please remember we are discussing pistols at this point and have not touched off on high caliber, high capacity semi auto or full auto rifles yet.  if you can find 1 cop who has had a pistol jam.....the problem would most likely be with the shooter and not the weapon. he may be holding the weapon improperly when firing (common problem with .45 cal's, it's called stovepiping), or they may not be cleaning or maintaining their sidearm properly (also a common jamming problem). their accuracy will vary wildly just from how quickly they pull the trigger, guns have a tendency to rise when firing quickly. when you get into full auto, you can go from shooting straight ahead, to over your head in around 4 rounds (thats why selectors have 3 round bursts) there is an old saying i want you to remember "if you need more than one shot, you need practice" there is a reason there is a high capacity magazine on a full auto rifle, they are not accurate when you are shooting in bursts. i shot in competitions, and in the service i had ranked, marksman, sharpshooter and expert. i even had more extensive training than that. they are not going to put the training and time into MCSO like the military did in me. when i tell you this is a bad idea.......trust me, i speak from experience.

only Joe would think HIS guys carrying full auto would be smart. all you have to do is remember Jared Laughner and his way of making the media pay attention to him. high capacity full auto weapons and big cities dont mix. i am one of the biggest gun proponents you will ever meet, and i can NOT find one instance where MCSO and full auto weapons can be combined to make a positive. hell.....Jared Laughner is more stable than most of the people Joe has wearing badges (or PPD, or MPD or TPD etc etc etc) and if we couldnt prevent him from shooting up a crowd when he was by himself....................................

 @danzigsdaddy My wife's officers all have fully auto rifles in their cars (here in CA) and only rarely pull them out. When they have it is because they are facing criminals armed with AK's which has happened. Having the weapon does not mean pulling it out under normal circumstances. But when faced with dangerous criminals out in the desert (where collateral damage is minimal) it is definitely nice to have.Also note those officers are being forced to wear two hats... 1) the police officer who is protecting and serving his community, and 2) a paramilitary force taking on illegals and drug traffickers (because Obama won't). I want them armed as well as possible and will leave it to their discretion on where to use what (and gladly support the firing of any officer who proves he does not have the discretion to justify that responsiblity)

 @Cal777  @JoeArpaioFan I always love when people call someone a "redneck" and then say they can't survive in the real world. Remember a few things. 1) rednecks have jobs unlike the entitlement community. 2) Rednecks do quiet well both in the civilized world and the less civilized world. 3) Pussies like you are the type who talk big on a comp but get their asses kicked (or shot) when messing with a redneck in real life.Just some funny observations by a redneck who would love to meet you in person.

 Zigs, most range masters teach their officers to shoot at least two rounds, given that in most cases the first round misses the target and the shooter is able to bring the sight picture into focus on subsequent rounds. It all happens in fractions of seconds, as you know. Also, it was my experience that those who shoot best in the controlled situation of a range environment often shoot worst in actual shooting situations, since they don't feel the emotional and physical stresses at the range that they do in the reality of shooting. As you may know there is a HUGE difference between shooting at the range and actual shooting situations. Yes, police officers SHOULD practice daily, but we all know that's not reality. The range environment practices the mechanics of shooting, but nothing prepares the shooter for the emotional and physical stresses of shooting at another human with intent to kill. Nor does anything prepare them for the aftermath of the actual shooting situation. My observations are based on personal involvement in both military and police shootings.

any real shooter will tell you, full auto in no way shape or form implies accuracy. if you need 25 rounds in 2 seconds.... you are in the middle of a crowd of insurgents. that could have been avoided. if you need more than 1 shot, you need practice. most law enforcement sidearms are high capacity magazines. you have more accuracy with single shots than you will firing full auto. by the time you get your assault rifle out of your vehicle he has found cover and is returning fire

 @danzigsdaddy Idiot, fact is that deputies need these automatic weapons because illegal aliens have them too and are not afraid to kill cops.  Keep in mind when deputies say STOP OR I'LL SHOOT they mean just that... STOP OR YOU WILL GET SHOT!

 @whatisthisworldcomin and as much as you would like to see them punished for using it when not necessary.....other things have occurred where they should be punished, but arent. and thats where a lot of my concern lies, they dont seem to be punished, so what will keep them in check?

 @whatisthisworldcomin things are a little different here in Maricopa. i have family in Cali, and other places, you guys dont get all the news of what all happens out here. in this county....we have had our proof, many times, that MCSO is not ready to handle something as dangerous as full auto. if they werent as prone to catastrophic failure as they are...then maybe i would see it differently, but they are constantly pulling stuff like crossing state line to commit assault, killing people in their jails etc etc (granted its not all of them) with the track record they seem to have...i just see the full auto coming out when its not necessary

Wrong Wiggl.

 

Most departments only issue automatic weapons to officers who are members of special tactical units (SWAT).

 

Very few departments across the country issue automatics to street officers.

 

By automatic I mean a full auto weapon,  not what is commonly called an automatic pistol.

 @wigglwagon fully aware of that, one of the first comments on this post was me saying that. i am objecting to joe issueing them to all his guys, and challenging the stability or competence of some of his officers TO carry these weapons

 @danzigsdaddy

 Angel Padilla is a good example. He sprayed 20+ rounds at the PPD officer, yet didn't hit him. The officer didn't have a chance to return even one shot. In the case of the theatre shooting in Aurora, Colorado many of the responding police officers have become emotional and psychological 'victims' from the carnage they walked into. Most folks don't realize that a cop can't just turn away and forget seeing the lifeless body of a child who has just been killed, or the bodies of the guys who threw themselves over their lady to protect her.

 @Tommy_Collins too many people think that its like on TV where everyone but the bad guy is a crack shot, and they all just go home with no worries and no innocent people shot. there is a reason they send cops to psyche aftre a shooting incident

 @JoeArpaioFan  @fredhawleyAnyone with a tag of JoeArpioFan is not only a moron, but really on the wrong website in this case. You won't find any friends around here fool. Arpio is wasting money again. Their semi-auto's are good enough for a bunch of ill-trained trigger happy buffoons. Don't try to tag me as some leftist hippie either. I own guns. The difference is I can hit what I'm aiming at. These idiots certainly should not need a full auto to fight crime. Joe is rationalizing this over two incidents? Was there even any gun fire in either incident?

 @fredhawley  There is nothing mentally wrong with me. You are the one with the problem. Police have a right to have automatic weapons. Do you think it's okay for illegals to run and drug cartels to have automatic weapons and not police? You are a sick puppy.
