More Believable: Cartel Bounty on Joe Arpaio or Sasquatch?

Categories: Morning Poll
Bigfoot, as portrayed in the infamous "Patterson Film."

In case you missed it Thursday, another person has been arrested for an alleged "death threat" against Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

A Peoria man made a comment online about taking a $2 million bounty from Mexican drug cartels for Arpaio's head -- a bounty that doesn't exist, to the public's knowledge.

Arpaio uses the line for fundraising and such, but there's never been a shred of proof that a Mexican drug cartel is targeting Arpaio. We're not sure why they would, either, since Maricopa County isn't that close to Mexico.

The only potential evidence that this bounty exists was from a report from the local Fox affiliate in 2010, about a text-message equivalent of a chain e-mail, claiming there was a $1 million bounty from the Juarez Cartel for Arpaio -- note that Juarez is nowhere near Arizona, let alone Maricopa County -- and also offering $1,000 if you want to join the cartel.

If you believe that, then we know a rich Nigerian prince who needs your help.

Similar to Arpaio's claim of the drug-cartel bounty, there's also no real proof of the existence of Sasquatch -- although there's considerably more research about that big dumb ape (Sasquatch).

What do you think is a more believable story: drug cartels offering tons of money to off the elderly sheriff, or a large monkey walking on two feet around the United States and elsewhere?

I really don't believe in BF, but just know that it exists...

Just look at those hairy tits, that muscular huge body, that hernia on the right leg evident on each step.

Arpaio should be US President anyway. Better him than reptilian Obama. The King of Worlrwide Spying


Sheriff Joe = Boy Who Cried Wolf

Only difference is the Wolf had the most character.

Joe you're getting really, really boring lately.


Ummmmmm......I think that the CORRUPT RACIST needs more money, just wait and see, soon there's going to B another press release featuring his old lady  begging 4 mo' money. I mean who in the fuck would want to take the risk to do time for something that's not worth it.

By the end of August probably he is gonna B back in the hospital when he TRIPS AGAIN and learns that he is no longer in charge of the CIRCUS that has become MCSO and has to RESPOND TO THE FEDS. Furthermore, when an audit is conducted and probably the feds R going to find out how much money has been "MISSPENT", and also, probably find the "second set of books" hidden somewhere, under a heavyly encrypted data base. Hopefully then he gets at least perp walked, along with that fagboi jaffy "yappy".

I wonder what happened to the other guy; the one that allegedly wanted to blow the RACIST's head off....or does the OLD FART and even his wife have to resort to that kind of bullshit everytime that he needs money? If just the BOS could have enough balls to recommend to put this MoFckr out to pasture at HILLFOLKREDNECK's hill. BTW. If Sasquatch runs 4 Guv or Shurf, I'll vote 4 "Sas". I think that sasquatch is more intelligent then both of them. just look how long has been able to hide. LMFAO.

I believe in Sasquatch had a beer with him last night! He was bragging about being the "World Champion at Hide and Seek"


Maybe the Mexican cartels are sending a Sasquatch to get Joe.

Yeah, that's the ticket.


Making a threat against Arpaio is a serious crime and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  In fact, this suspect should be charged in federal court with making terrorist threats.

Let this be a warning to all that if you threaten Arpaio (even indirectly) you will be caught and prosecuted.

I think it's time that the Mexican Drug Cartel is threatened.


@delcorralalamo, & what exactly would this CLOWN SHURF would accomplish, all he knows to do the best is BEGG, BITCH AND MEDIA WHORING. Probably he'd begin to begg and bitch to other countries, like Russia, Iraq, Iran, Cuba and on and on and then try to sell them pink underware, also probably he would tell them that he's been descriminated because his age. BWA HA HA HA HA HA. GO BACK TO UR CORRAL.

@JoeArpaioFan would not telling Joe where an uneven section of sidewalk be considered a threat? that would be a more viable threat to Joe and his safety than the bogus cartel contract on him is. 


@JAFFYDUCK. stupid as always, the only threat to the POS is himself."Let this be a warning to all threaten Arpaio...blah....blah..blah.."  like the guy that allegedly wanted to blow the oversized OLD FART's head? was he prosecuted at all? U R more than stupid to believe all that bullshit, which I could call it," THREATS 4 PROFIT", since everytime there's a "threat", there comes the begging 4 $. PHOENIX IDIOT.



Too bad the only real threat MSCO can catch are the toothless uneducated  hilljacks that are stupid enough to post a threat in a public forum.  Anything else would require real investigative work and MCSO isn't prepared for that type of thing.
