A false claim on the side of the new MCSO headquarters.
Sorry, construction workers -- despite what you may have read on the side of the pricey new headquarters for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, you will not be getting the day off due to a bomb inside the building.

This new building near Sixth Avenue and Jackson is under construction, as you can see in the photo below (taken this morning), and according to an MCSO spokesman, bomb-sniffing dogs "hit" on a lunchbox on the second floor of the building, after the graffiti was discovered this morning.

According to MCSO, the lunch box just had safety glasses and some water, which either means the dogs aren't very good at sniffing out bombs or the Sheriff's Office is leaving out the part about the salami sandwich.

Other graffiti on the wall included the phrases, "Happy May Day" and, "Stop building prisons for other workers," which Arpaio's media-spin committee says is apparently "an anti-illegal immigration message aimed at Sheriff Arpaio's workplace investigations, which have resulted in numerous arrests of illegal immigrants who have used false IDs to get employment."

Still, there's no bomb, and construction workers were already back at work this morning.

Those in today's May Day rallies are really confused and lost souls. They want what??? Nope, you can't have what you want. There will be no immigration reform as you see fit.

Your heckling Arpaio will only make him more determined to do more raids. And they're coming. Don't like it? What are you gonna do about it bitch?

The person or persons responsible will be caught. The FBI is investigating and they will catch the person or persons responsible. Trust me, I know.  Because one of the messages painted said "Happy May Day", obviously it was done by an illegal alien or a supporter of illegal aliens.  Somehow I bet the New Times is responsible.

HAHAHA - I was wondering how long it would be until people start making fun directly of all the sheriffs "crying wolf" antics

wait a minute............. so let me get this straight. Joe gets a bomb in the mail that he "says" was a serious threat and should not be taken lightly, yet he doesnt bump up security measures at all? MCSO is under siege and Joe doesnt even bother to post any security details at his construction site?  hey, great threat management  you got going there buddy. if this is how he responds to threats to himself, just how serious is he taking the threats to schools and kids?          oh yeah, thats right, he called in Seagal (who had something more important to do that day)

It seems that the MCSO Goons/PR clowns have NO understanding of history, with this being "May Day".  Lisa Allen is still trying groom her favorite dog, named  Joe!  (who's paw is still out of action after the sidewalk attacked him!)

But what about if this article was about a possible bomb at the New Times instead; would the article make a joke out of that too?

Why have there been no arrests in the "Big" Flagstaff "Scary Box" Hoax/Publicity Stunt?!

Surely the F.B.I. takes Bomb Threats against a Sheriff seriously, or do they know Arpaio's Publicity Tactic's?

Better to be carefull now especially since the government is bombing around the planet: Sandy Hook was a drill; Boston Marathon was a drill; McVey had his government handler, suspect #2 -that the FBI does not want; Aurora Colorado BATMAN movie shooter had suspect #2 - that the government does not want; 911 had witnesses that were intentionally not called by the 911 Commission; Pentagon was detonated (the financial portion were the computers were, after Rumsfeld declared war on the missing 2.3 trillion dollars.); All the people arrested in Boston were part of the government drill, before they shifted to a Muslim. [How did a kid get bombs past all of those bomb-sniffing dogs and the X-Ray trucks? http://youtu.be/_nUOBSN03TU

There's another thing that could happen here: False alerts. Often, bomb and drug sniffing dogs are part of a duo: Dog and handler. Handlers can give off signals (often without intent) to the dogs to give a positive signal on a suspect object. TL;DR: The false positive could be the handler's fault too.

@JoeArpaioFan Hey Dumbass. May 1st is also the common day of recognition for law enforcement. "Happy May Day" refers only to May 1st. There has never been any cultural or racial attachment with it. Damn, you really are stoopid...

@ Arpaio's "Butt Monkey" (JAF)

I bet you are covering your tracks as well as you can?!

Why does it take so long for the F.B.I. to catch someone so un-sophisticated, and dumb enough to do such a stupid thing?!

Is it because it was an inside job/Publicity Hoax?!

"Trust me, I know"? Hum?

I kinda think you really do know.

P.S. Hey Dumb Ass (J.A.F.) most "Illegals" would have written a message in Spanish?, duhn't  ya thank?

@JoeArpaioFan Maybe I should turn in the woman who posted "Happy May Day" on Facebook because you think she is an illegal alien. 

Where do you come up with shit?

@Flyer9753 You are suspect number 1. I just got off the phone with the Phoenix FBI and they are investigating. Just to let you all know, they will be obtaining IP addresses and taking a close look at Arpaio's critics.

@danzigsdaddy Why should he post anything. He's protected, and anyybody would be stupid to attempt anything. Anybody stupid enough to try will be shot dead on the spot. Let this be a warning!!

@JoeArpaioFan  

Why would they? The NT does not have a history of crying wolf when there is no wolf, unlike the guy you spend hours butt kissing, Joe Arpaio

Hey, when are you going to post my name? C'mon, I want to see you post my name since you have said you have it.

Great petition you have over at change.org - I notice you are up to 5 signatures. Now we know you have at least 5 duplicate email accounts for trolling.

@JoeArpaioFan  actually.....yes they would. they would probably see it for the half-assed attempt of intimidation that it is (kind of like your threats to post everyones personal info) and since you are such a half educated twit.......if they did get a bomb threat, you would be stupid enough to sign it.   so it would be a real easy case to crack

@JoeArpaioFan well, New times hasnt staged faux death threats against them like joe has..big difference. are you implying you are going to do so though, cause thats considered a threat (not too mention a felony)

@DNichols  

I've been wondering the same. 

Of course, if it actually had been a real bomb, we would not have heard the end of it for months. 

This alone tells me it was all a BS PR stunt staged by Joe to try to ride the coat tails of the real tragedy that happened in Boston

@JoeArpaioFan @Flyer9753  

GOOD! When they get here I will happily show them the captured screen shots and email notifications of all of your threats against the people who post here and NT.

BTW - what's my name bitch? When are you going to do what you said you would do and post them?

You don't do anything else you 'claim' to have done so why should I believe you actually called the FBI? I don't.

@JoeArpaioFan  so well protected that someone had time to go into his building site and write in big ass letters and take time to spell it right and make it very legible, the threat?     guess what twit......he isnt as protected as you think. if he was this never would have happened.  try again twit

@Flyer9753 @JoeArpaioFan Oh give me a break. You cry wolf with each article you print. The blame you put on others is the same blame that should be put on you.

@david_saint01@JoeArpaioFan No I never implied that. But how come this incident is not in the news anywhere else? Being that it is not then maybe this article could be construed as a faux death threat.

@ Arpaio's Butt Monkey (JAF)

I hope you are right because it seems like the F.B.I. is doing nothing, and besides this probably bieng an Arpaio staged Stunt, it could have harmed innocent Postal Workers!

To: True Justice, even if it was yet another M.C.S.O. Hoax like the Saguaro Lake Phony, and  Staged "Arizona's Largest Drug Bust"!!

I don't print any articles you idiot.

BTW - what's my name bitch? You say you have it, or are you just crying wolf again?

I would love to give you a break... oops... did I just threaten you? Good luck with making a case for that, you will need it.

I look forward to being served a subpoena or the cops at my door, since according to you, you know my name and address from the recall petition, so you know where to have me served/arrested... ROFL!!!

@JoeArpaioFan no you arent, but you are the only one who does dislike the New Times that posts his threats. i left you a post regrading that on the blog about the police shooting Zachariah a few days back that actually compares you to a uni-bomber type person......go read it, you might like it

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@JoeArpaioFan it is a faux death threat. faux by Joe. big tip skippy, construction sites are guarded, especially ones like this. Joe cant claim he got mail"bombs" any more so now he has to say it was "a narrowly avoided threat to him" by being on the work site. its not like the fool who cant walk down the street without breaking his arm is going to be traipsing around a construction site, so it was never anything that he would have ever had contact with, but he will soon be claiming it was a close call

@JoeArpaioFan why dont you get your head out of your ass before you speak. it has been on multiple news agencies you twit. my goddam phone has at least 5 or 6 different agencies reporting it
