Joe Arpaio, Elderly Sheriff, Claims He's a Victim of Discrimination (LOL)

Allegedly not-dead Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Elderly Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio claims he's a victim of discrimination.

Because of Arpaio's age, he's being targeted by MCSO deputies who are pulling over elderly drivers en masse. He's being grilled about his citizenship because of how his skin looks, and is being held by deputies longer than people who don't look like him. Whoops, never mind, we're thinking of Latino people.

Fox 10 stroked Arpaio's ego for a TV segment yesterday, and Arpaio, who's turning 81 next week, claimed he's the victim of age discrimination.

"What, do you think I'm going to drop dead or something?" Arpaio asked the giggling reporter.

That's exactly what people think is going to happen. In fact, more than 66 percent of New Times readers who voted in our poll think Arpaio will leave office dead, compared to just 13 percent who think he'll leave office alive, but in handcuffs.

And, gee, why would they think that?

Maybe they're concerned about a Sheriff who has to be hospitalized for several days after tripping over himself on a Phoenix sidewalk, looked somewhere between three-quarters and seven-eighths dead, and wasn't seen in public for weeks,

Edlerly Sheriff Joe Arpaio


Arpaio already guaranteed that he's running in 2016, and -- God forbid -- if he wins that election, he'd be a lot closer to 90 when he would finish that term. Get outta here with that discrimination nonsense.

Hey the man is smart.  All those sun city type followers of his are just eating this up.  Finally some to stand up for the old folks.  He is a hero to them all over again.

Disgusting isn't it?

since he feels like being an activist, instead of just going against ageism, why wont he share the story of how he was kidnapped and become an activist for them too? he even had that campaign commercial where he said he was kidnapped............tell us about it Joe, kidnap victims are being discriminated against also, they need you as their spokesman, so do the horrible drivers (and you did hit that boulder in the parking lot) and lest we all forget, the alzhiemer victims need a spokesman too (and according to every single testimony you have ever given.....you know it well, or do you "NOT RECALL"?)

Matthew Hendley DROP DEAD!  You've got a lot of nerve to write what you write and I can guarantee your days as a reporter are numbered -- just you wait and see.  You are nothing but a piece of shit faggot.  How about if you talk about your elderly sick mother instead??????  Go suck a dick bitch.

By the way Luke while you've been sitting at your computer bitching about this your Republican brethren just voted to keep GITMO open. It's once again the old end around fake. Keep them busy over here while we screw them over here.

Yes Luke I'm going to give out names and ranks of Special Op and Black Op individuals to appease your irrational paranoia on who's been spying on whom and when it started? Not in this life time. When you've seen animals blown to bits by a flick of a switch and no visible weapon in sight get back to me. Until that time you're nothing more than a windbag civilian like Limbaugh, who can only bitch and moan, but do nothing to stop anything from happening. By the way Reagan was listening in on civilians in parks smoking pot during his " War on drugs " campaign and that's gone over really well. How do I know? Like I tell a 5 year old.... because I do. Prove me wrong.

Arpaio worrying about discrimination? That's a joke. As he has said many, many times --- not in my department.

I bet Arpaio wants to remain in office until he dies so that he's not arrested and put in tent city when his successor opens the books and the closets where all the skeletons have been hidden for 20+ years..

Please don't throw Limbaugh into this mix. He is basically a useless, pot stirring, windbag. Think about it. He has never solved ANYTHING. He has never used his obvious popularity to 'Get in the game" and "make a difference". His role in all this (and he thrives on it) is to be a know it all attention whore. His most common phrase is "If I were in charge I would...". Yet he never does anything. He mouths off all day every day. 'WE should do this, WE should do that. I can't believe they did this or that.'. Over the years he has evolved his rhetoric to be "me, me, me". He is so proud that he spoke the obvious. You don't even have to worry that you may have missed something because he will GLADLY point out that he warned against something a long time ago. He isn't a unique insightful clairvoyant. He has NO idea HOW to run a government. He has NO idea how to get things accomplished in the real world. I am NOT saying he is always wrong. I am saying he makes a healthy living preaching the obvious to the mindless. Our government (both republicans and democrats) have created a "warped system" of leadership. YES it is wrong. YES it should be different. YES it shouldn't be loaded with back room deals and pork. YES we have to much bureaucracy. Now, does that insightfulness make me a special person? NO, it means I just stated the obvious. Rush couldn't figure out how to manage a campaign, much less figure out how to get anything accomplished in "real world" politics. Rush is best at rallying rednecks with lucid (and obvious) comments that only inflame situations others are ACTUALLY trying to deal with.

It must be weird, after you've had a stroke (especially), to realize that you've spent so much of your life pandering to the lowest common demoninator in an effort to try to make yourself...what?  What has Joe accomplished?  He's sent Maricopa County back decades into the past.  His marquee accomplishments are being a total asshole to random jail inmates (while profiting handsomely on his own policies), harassing brown people, and getting reelected. 

His entire life is a waste.   He's done nothing positive, ever.  Yet, he's made life infinitely worse for countless number of people...here's to his next stroke!

Site your sources please regarding the Reagan admin violating the rights of innocent Americans that were not under any criminal investigation. I sited all my info, chapter and verse --- you need to do the same. For any Progressive that thinks everybody on the right (like Rush Limbaugh) proudly applauded The PATRIOT Act after 9/11... not so fast. #FactsAreHardForProgressives http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2013/06/07/on_september_12_2001_i_warned_america_not_to_trade_freedom_for_security

They had wire tapping back when Reagan was in office that you knew of. Of course there was not the technology for the average citizen, but the government could hear you take a shit back in those days from a good three miles away and they used it. Do you really think the technology was as innate as you were told it was? I know people that have been black ops for decades, who do you know personally? You get your " info " from websites and think you have it figured out? You're getting more ignorant by the minute. You still have no idea what technology is actually out there and I find civilians like you to be somewhat hilarious if it wasn't actually so sad. LMFAO

And yet another empty threat (a threat nonetheless) from sad little Robert.

Off to the DOJ and FBI it goes....

@JoeArpaioFan I do believe that is a threat on the internet.  As I recall there is an Arizona law about such things.  Quick call Joe, let's get his fan arrested!

HB2549 - "It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use a ANY ELECTRONIC OR DIGITAL DEVICE and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person."

@hjoemora Oh so you wish harm on law enforcement? We've got your number motherfucker and you'll be sorry for what you said. But to tell you the truth I'll be happy when your whore momma and faggot daddy kicks the bucket.

@Concerned_Resident at least Reagan had a sort of coming to Jesus moment after he got shot...joes "fall" doesnt seemed to have fazed him one bit..the true sign of a lack of a soul.

@Concerned_Resident Your entire life is a waste and it might just end soon because rumor has it that your health is bad and you are a likely candidate for a stroke.  You better be concerned asshole.

@Arizona Luke LMAO oh really? Google "right wing supports patriot act" and enjoy the hundreds of results you get where the right wing defended the invasion of privacy while Bush was President..only thing different is its a black Democrat...spare us the faux outrage hypocrite

@JoeArpaioFan Your tone sounds so defensive. According to the Social Security Administration the average 81 year old has a life expectancy of 7.6 years. Joe is pretty much a porker, so his expectancy is probably less than that.

Robert, YPS has already told you that you aren't affiliated with law-enforcement.

Stop pretending to be someone you're not Robert.

@JoeArpaioFan listen to you...."We've got your number........." are you implying you are in law enforcement? or are you just pretending to be part of MCSO like Brian Sean Jones was doing? better be careful skippy, did you see how well its working out for Jones?
