Joe Arpaio Claims for the Zillionth Time That He Was Almost Blown to Smithereens

Sheriff Joe Arpaio


Stop us if you've heard this one before: Someone far, far away from Maricopa County has been arrested for threatening to blow Sheriff Joe Arpaio to greasy chunks.

It's possible you've heard this one before because this happens to be the fourth time an alleged "bomb threat" has been made against Arpaio since April, the MCSO claims.

-10 Most Bogus "Death Threats" Against Joe Arpaio

MCSO claims a guy from Boston named Robert Menard "threatened to bomb the Sheriff's office several days ago."

Don't worry, folks, some of Arpaio's boys went to Boston to get the guy.

That was just about all the info released by Arpaio's office, which mentions all the not-so-credible threats against Arpaio over the last few months. One of the bomb threats was a spray-painted message on the new MCSO building in Phoenix, claiming there was a bomb inside. The only thing in there was a bomb-less lunch box.

Another, MCSO says, was an unknown Canadian suspect who offered to bomb Arpaio's home. The other was the not-so-sophisticated device that Arpaio calls a "bomb," which may not have been.

Read Arpaio's entire press release on the latest incident below:
There was once a young Shepherd Boy who tended his sheep at the foot of a mountain near a dark forest. It was rather lonely for him all day, so he thought upon a plan by which he could get a little company and some excitement. He rushed down towards the village calling out "Wolf, Wolf," and the villagers came out to meet him, and some of them stopped with him for a considerable time. This pleased the boy so much that a few days afterwards he tried the same trick, and again the villagers came to his help. But shortly after this a Wolf actually did come out from the forest, and began to worry the sheep, and the boy of course cried out "Wolf, Wolf," still louder than before. But this time the villagers, who had been fooled twice before, thought the boy was again deceiving them, and nobody stirred to come to his help. So the Wolf made a good meal off the boy's flock, and when the boy complained, the wise man of the village said:

"A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth."
Whoops, wrong one.

Here we go:
BOMB THREATS AGAINST SHERIFF ARPAIO AND OFFICE ON UPSURGE AS ANOTHER SUSPECT IS INDICTED
4 Bomb Threats in last 4 Months

(Phoenix, AZ) Bomb threats against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his office are keeping investigators busy as yet another suspect is indicted. On Monday, August 19th, 2013 a Boston, Massachusetts man was indicted by a Maricopa County grand jury and a warrant was issued for 47 year old Robert Paul Menard. Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies traveled to and tracked down Menard in Massachusetts after he threatened to bomb the Sheriff's office several days ago.

This is the fourth bomb threat against Arpaio or his office since April.
Sounds like a real open-and-shut case. We'll pass along any updates we come across.

When is it actually going to be time for Joe to provide a professional department that provides public safety for Maricopa county?  We don't need another 420 serious cases to go without investigation here.  Don't get me wrong, no matter what Joe has done he deserves to be safe but so do the residents of the county that elected him.

"smithereens" comes from the Irish (Gaelic) word "smidirin" which means "tiny piece".

Just in case anybody else was wondering if it had been coined by Yosemite Sam.

Hey Joe, no mention of this latest bomb threat against you on all the Boston news stations.

Are you just making shit up so people will feel sorry for you and donate to your bullshit campaign? Yup.

WHAT THE FUCK, This MoFkr is clearly DEMENTED, Another BOMB THREATah?, NICKLE BAG JOE, It took him too long this time to come up with that NEW THREAT though. since Dany's car wash business was taking all the MEDIA's attention, how could he be outdone? specially from one of his "underlings". IMO, it could've been more credible if he would've said that TSARNAEV had sent him a PRESSURE COOKER IN A "SUSPISCIOUS BOX". LMFAOROTFF. 

How in the fuck people can buy that bullshit, unless of course, those people R the likes of HILLFOLKREDNECK-who'd probably would buy 1 of those trips 2 outer space- & JAFfy- D official maid 4 the RACIST 1- these mother fuckers would believe anything that CORRUPT POS would say, even if he says he is THE CHUPACABRAS. What else can B expeced from them, since probably HILLFOLK -who i heard that now he's living under saggy's bed- is making the burritos and tacos into a PUREE 2 spoon feed D OLD FART, while jaffy clean his saggy balls out of gunk and making them shine just like D toilets at BK ha ha ha ha....ha ha ha ha.

I'm just curious as to why these people who remotely "threaten" Joe are so easily plucked from their home states. If Joe sends deputies to Boston to get the guy, why on earth doesn't he obtain counsel and have said extradition delayed until forever? The ease with which Joe apprehends these so-called assassins baffles me, frankly.

Now if someone threatened to blow up Matthew Hendley should we accept it as real or a lie?  This story is pathetic.

Enough of these attack articles against Sheriff Arpaio.

Here it is, we knew Drama Queen Arpaio would concoct a "Stunt" to try to divert attention from his involvement in the Danny's Car Wash "Protection Racket", and the fact that for five years as Arpaio has raided his Executive Posse Member Dannys smaller Competitors Car Washes he has not only Protected Dannys Car Washes but has had M.C.S.O. Deputies working side by side with un-documented workers many times at Dannys to raise money for the M.C.S.O.

It won't work Arpaio why don't you resign ahead of the upcoming Indictment for Racketeering with Danny?!!

Hillfolk, this might surprise you but Boston is about 2200 miles out of the narcissistic old man's jurisdiction.

Also, the hateful old man is from Massachusetts. He's afraid the 300 year old sidewalks will cause him to trip and break his arm again....

@robert_graham lol Matthew has never set someone up for a "bombing attack" like Joe has..or claimed threats on several occasions for that matter, while never providing any evidence. (IE the "cartels have a hit out on me so i have to spend a million bucks in tax payer money to stay at a flashy hotel in 'hiding') matt's reference about the boy crying wolf is spot on

FuckJoeArpaio

@robert_graham

JoeArpaioFan, why did you change your moniker?  Not feeling so fanatic after your hero's buddy was taken DOWN by ICE?

I am sure that no one here is surprised that our corrupt Sheriff will say anything to deflect the conversation away from the incredibly damaging revelation that his long-time buddy, major contributor, fundraising partner and coffee for cops program provider, Danny, had his criminal enterprise raided by ICE. 

As soon as Danny's middle management is faced with the certainty of either doing time or rolling over on Arpaio's buddy, Danny will also be arrested and tried for his criminal enterprise.  

At which time, we will likely hear much more about Arpaio's complicity and conspiracy to commit ID Fraud, and using his public office to provide protection or Danny's criminal enterprise through the forbearance of raids while disadvantaging Danny's competition by targeting them for raids in exchange for donations and ongoing fundraising operations. Quid pro quo.

Remember Cheuy's?  Those folks are doing hard time.  So will Danny, and by the grace of god let's hope Arpaio is right there with him!

@OnthetakeYou see there you go trying to divert attention away from the truth.  Are you angry that Arpaio wasn't involved in the Danny's raid?  You poor poor baby. You, like all the others did not listen when I told you after the last raid to watch for the next raid which will be bigger and better.  So now you have it -- Danny's.

Your hero, JoeArpaioFan, is both corrupt and complicit in Danny's crimes!

@JoeArpaioFan, SHUT THE FUCK UP PUNK ASS BITCH, U didn't know anything about ICE's raid.

SO STOP TRYING TO GET SOME CREDIT 4 THAT. U DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT ICE'S RAID, FUCKING RETARDED BITCH.BTW THE NEXT 1, PROBABLY WILL B AGAINST MCSO, AFTER HENDON'S PROBABLE INDICTMENT.
