Sheriff Joe Arpaio at a press conference for his school-patrol posse.
A 10-year-old 5th-grader at Guadalupe's Frank Elementary learned a valuable lesson about "snitches" on Tuesday.

See, the boy had enlisted help in stabbing one of his classmates for "snitching," but the classmates ended up ratting him out to the teacher, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. He also learned how to become a pawn for Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

To be clear, Sheriff Joe Arpaio's not really trying to hide that he's using this incident as a publicity stunt to get back at Guadalupe town Councilman Andrew Sanchez, because Sanchez said he didn't want Arpaio's school-patrol posse near the town's schools.

"This comes just weeks after Town Councilmen [sic], Andrew Sanchez, denounced Sheriff Arpaio for a 'publicity stunt' aimed at school safety and the Sheriff's School Posse Program," an Arpaio press release says.

Also from that press release:

The Sheriff intended these patrols to be temporary until the local or federal government can fix the serious issue of school violence. However Guadalupe Town Councilmen Andrew Sanchez disagreed asking The Sheriff to "refrain from sending posse into Guadalupe" because they are under qualified and it harasses Guadalupe residents and its students. Despite the councilman's request, Sheriff Arpaio ordered his posse to continue patrolling in Guadalupe.

That's pretty much what Sanchez said.

"We are paying him to have certified deputies here, not to bring a circus and not to use our town as a political platform," Sanchez told the Associated Press earlier this month.

In response to that, Arpaio seemed a bit pissed at Sanchez's comments at a press conference a few weeks ago.

"Nobody wants to be the police department in Guadalupe," Arpaio said.

The town contracts MCSO to do its policing, since it doesn't have its own police force.

Still, Arpaio touts the role his posse played in this whole event, which was nothing.

"[It's] cases like this where my posse could have been a first responder had something tragic occurred, but thankfully didn't," Arpaio says in his press release.

The problem is, the posse-person was just roaming around the school during all of this.

According to MCSO, the 10-year-old boy admitted to detectives that he brought a knife to school on Tuesday, with the intention of stabbing his classmate. He said he was going to wear a beanie -- which detectives found in the boy's backpack, along with the knife -- to disguise his face while he stabbed the kid.

In the end, though, he tried to get help from his classmates, and they ratted him out to the teacher.

The kid was booked into juvie on three charges.

The 10 year old admitted he brought a knife to school with the intention on stabbng another child.  What else would you expect to happen?  If Sheriff Joe didn't do anything about the situation, I can almost guarantee we would be hearing how he is a racist and doesn't want to go near Guadalupe.  You can't have it both ways people, although you try hard to do so. By the way, where are the parents of this young boy?

Sitting on a bale of beautiful Bermuda hay one day, at Hernandez Trucking, I asked a friend why they were so happy and my Ph.D. colleagues at ASU were so sour.  He answered, "The more you know, the more you worry.'  He gave me my doctorate that day.  If it's a 'shit town' then I don't want to know, but I doubt it.  From what I have read recently, I would say that the shit comes from out of town.

I have fond, very fond memories from the Sixties of Guadalupe, when we were surrounded by desert, not a tile roof ghetto of yuppies and it was inhabited by Mexican and Yaqui people who were beautiful and gentle and family loving.  I would ride my horse around and through there, buy hay at Hernandez Trucking and get the best green chile burro available at the Freeway Cafe [can still taste them].  Still hope that a core of that decency remains.  The statement by 'WakeMe' is disgusting and historically incorrect.  Don't the Yaqui still celebrate Easter at the Mission?

What is the funniest name you have heard "Shurf Joe's" posse referred to as?  I think one of my favorites is the Diapered Dementia Deputies.

From all accounts it appears this incident was handled within the school, by school administration, and they then called MCSO to report it, as required by law.

No self-respecting law enforcement agency would use this incident for aggrandizement of the agency, much less to publicly criricize a public official.

The MCSO sheriff is mentally ill.

He seriously needs professional help as he trundles along in the last part of his life.

Praise Mr. Sanchez for his professionalism. He's only trying to prevent his community from being used as a circus playground by the Flaccid Failure. He's a true community leader. And every city council should pay heed and be inspired by Mr. Sanchez's vigilantism against a well despised autocratic geezer who is not a certified law officer.

"I's cases like this where my posse could have been first responder had something tragic ocurred, but thankfully didn't" This from the CLOWN "Nickel bag Joe"these are the only cases that he is able to solve, 10 years old kids, janitors, hard working people, all cases that don't require investigation, what a joke this CLOWN is. And then the POSSE CIRCUS. I heard the rumor that the posse member  that suppose to watch the school got lost and couldn't remember what he was up to, then found wandering 1 mile away from the school and when asked what he was doing so far away, that's when he remembered everything. ha, ha ,ha ,ha. GOOD FOR THE MCSO CIRCUS AND HIS MEDIA WHORE SHURF.

How about the New Times do some real reporting here other than its relentless bashing of Sheriff Joe.  The mantre from the left is ... Obama won get over it... you lost.  Well how about we apply that here... Sheriff Joe won, get over it... the people have spoken.

Why dont you write up on violence and gangs in the schools?  Why doesn't Guadalupe have a police department?  What are school officials doing?   Again your editors are not doing their job, but what can you expect from a rag that makes its money selling sex and porno on the back pages.

@WhoKnows Because I truly hurt his feelings when I revealed that with his first username JAF along with his Mexican picture. That was he was in a Tit-for-Tat deal with his 80 year old master. The F.F. was only using him to show that the F.F. is not racist with a significant few self-hating Mexicans like JAFucker. JAFucker is here illegally and he belongs in Mexico. Can we say this is a sequence to Sheriff "Studboi1" Paul Baboo love affair?

Perhaps Maricopa county and the MCSO should cancel their contract with Guadalupe and let it self destruct... we could stop by later and pick up whats left... if anything!

Wow nice comes back... my mother boohoo...

The New Times used to be a good read.They have drifted so far off the left end and are so full of hate it’s not really funny.Did they even do a story on Jon Hammar, the former Marine held in a Mexican prison? How about Fast and Furious? Benghazi? Nope, just continue to spout hate crap toward the MCSO… Republicans… or anyone with an adult opposing opinion… Why? Because all you fools eat this shit up like hookers at a political convention…

You really think with the multitude of liberal left media outlets in the valley they have not tried? They have not over turned every stone looking for dirt on this guy. Or are you saying the local media is corrupt? If there was anything of legitimacy they, this local liberal media, would have popped that open faster than you could say MCSO… What is your “the whole truth” that would put him in prison?

@JUNKKICKER I agree that this rag is barely of quality for the bottom of a bird cage, but it is kinda worth the price I pay.  

They could/should do some "real" news stuff, but it seems that Hendley and Lemons are stuck in a rut.  For them it is the Flaccid Fool, or unemployment.


However...Joe Arpaio is the most worthless representative of modern law enforcement that can be found anywhere.  He is ignorant, arrogant, and probably flatulent. He brings this hate on himself.

I do not agree with many stories written here, but all of those directed at Joe have some kernel of truth in them.  The rest of the story, for better or for worse, is usually just to fill up space and sell advertising.

@JUNKKICKER @david_saint01 lets start with Scott Norberg and the cover up involved in his MURDER! Next, lets talk about the jail commissary funds, which do not go back to the county but rather to arpaios brother in law and likely joe himself. Same goes with the pink underwear profits. Also of note, MCSO has not done a full audit since 96...why do you think he went so hard after Stapley a few years ago? Cause Don was telling him he wouldnt back down from requesting one. (true story, yes i have facts to prove it) Which brings me to the next issue, joe hiding his personal funds when he is supposed to be submitting them yearly per the same law he tried to charge Stapley with. Reference his commercial properties (which he bought for 900k in cash mind you..whered he get that???), and the fact he tried to hide his purchasing other buildings by listing them as additions to existing one..rather than filing them independently. That is AGAINST THE LAW! 

I have plenty more where that came from too if you care to continue...

@JUNKKICKER @PissOnArpaio fuck you and the mule you rode in on dumbass. Arpaio is a travesty to our community, having done nothing but ignore sex crimes in favor of political cases to feed his never ending ego..refusing to form a warrant unit saying he doesnt have the man power, yet everytime a TV crew wants to come to town and film a show he somehow manages. And my personal favorite, going after judges over rulings he didnt like. The latter is so fascist only Hitler could be proud of it. 
Instead of being part of the problem, start being part of the solution you gullible moron. And in case you have a smart ass retort about liberals, im not one jack ass. But thanks for assuming just because i dont fall in step like a good minion like you idiots.
