Joe Arpaio's Latest "Death Threat": Man Says He'll Take Imaginary Cartel Bounty

The definition of "death threat" continues to grow for Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office arrested a Peoria man for making a "death threat" against Arpaio, by making a comment online about taking a $2 million bounty from Mexican drug cartels for Arpaio's head. The main problem, of course, is that a $2 million bounty from Mexican drug cartels for Arpaio's head doesn't exist.

This rumor literally started as a text-message version of a chain e-mail, which was "reported" by the local Fox affiliate back in 2010.

The local Fox affiliate is still operating under the belief that a Mexican drug cartel -- which will assassinate Mexican politicians, or chop off a guy's head for stealing some drugs -- is texting random people around Phoenix, offering a million bucks or so to off an elderly sheriff who can't even walk outside without tripping over himself and landing in the hospital.

"Multiple Mexican drug cartels have reportedly targeted the Sheriff for execution since 2007," Fox 10 "reports" today. "Some of the bounties mentioned in the cases have been reported as high as $3 million."

Nope. No they haven't.

Instead, Arpaio's announcing a "death threat" from a self-admitted mentally ill man who made several ill-conceived comments on YouTube videos.

Never mind the racist a few comments above using the handle "Kenny Boone," who claims he'll "shoot spik dead!! Ese!!! Yall are fuckin nasty people!!!" -- the purpose is to give Arpaio the attention.

Other alleged "death threats" Arpaio has claimed includes a man who said on Twitter that he "want[s] to personally blow Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's head off," as well as a guy from Tennessee who claimed Satan ordered him to kill Alan Keyes, Herman Cain, and Michael Savage, as well as Arpaio.

Like the Peoria man arrested in the latest "threat," the man who made the ramblings about Satan and Arpaio also had some sort of mental-health issues. Aside from his truly bizarre statements on the Internet, a Tennessee judge also made a mental-health stipulation in sentencing him.

Then there's always James Brian Saville, who got his idea to blow up Arpaio from none other than the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. (Saville later got a settlement for that one.)

The Peoria man arrested in the latest incident, Frederick Joseph Cusick, was arrested at his home earlier this week, according to MCSO.

lol yet more bullshit from the king of bullshit himself.

IF the cartels really wanted the narcissistic old man dead they would have done it by now.

Stop believing Arpaio's self-serving bullshit people. All he's doing is making gullible fools like Robert (JAF) donate to his delusional campaign.

On another note, the RACIST POS just twitted that: him, having 50 years of experince, think that Obama will call me for DHS post? I was DEA chief on Turkey, Mexico, Latin America & Texas-Arizona Borders.

Now I understand why all those places has so many problems: like corruption, beign one of them and 4 which the OLD FART is well known. If my mind doesn't betray me, the RACIST 1 has always been begging to Mr Obama 4 a position.

And then he goes on camera and says that he's beign sarcastic; what else can the POS say to deny his begging, which BTW is all he does along with bitching all the time. WHAT A FUCKING MEDIA WHORE

Wow! 

Arpaio is shaking like a little Turd at the ramblings of a mentally ill person on the internet?!

Yet Arpaio ignored "Real Reported Cases of Child molesting, and Rape to his Office".

Protect your own sorry Chicken Shit Arse against Idol Threats Little Joe, but ignore our Children actually being Molested, and Raped you Garbage in Uniform

Probably many of the Child Molestation cases the M.C.S.O. ignored were Children Molested by Your Personal Pals right Arpaio?!

What Un Common "Cower".

Dollars to donuts that a fundraising appeal has already gone out or is being readied to go out that will proclaim that the sheriff "needs your help" because "bad people" are out to get him and the cartels want him dead and the only way you can help, good citizen, is by donating $100, $500 or even $1000 to him.  Never mind that the threat was  notcredible and the person making the threat turns out to be developmentally disabled.  Its important to recognize that Arpaio only does what he does for his personal benefit - feeding his ego, beating down opponents, expanding his perceived sphere of control, or raising money - often raising money.

It's time for Joe to go out and do some more immigration raids.

Frederick Cusick needs to be taught some manners. I think Arpaio should feed him only bread and water until he changes his attitude.  If I worked in the jail I'd throw him a few good beatings.

OK, I just saw this guy on Ch 12 news.  I'm not sure the best way to say this, but the guy is "Challenged" or "Special".

Has MSCO sunk so LOW as to use someone like this for press?    Wait.  Yes.  They are that low.


Right YPS?

@WhoKnows   I gave my theory on that some time ago.  Joe has been wearing "the bag" since leaving the hospital and has limited his appearances.  Just a theory, due to the fact that there was obviously a "condition" that caused the fall that broke his arm.  I'm sticking with that one.
