Sheriff Joe Arpaio


It certainly appears that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is going to get a babysitter monitor as a result of the Melendres racial-profiling lawsuit.

Maybe, just maybe, the MCSO will operate a little differently with this appointed monitor looking over Arpaio's shoulder.

It'll be the monitor's job to make sure Arpaio's boys are complying with whatever order U.S. District Judge Murray Snow comes back with.

Lawyers for MCSO and the ACLU were arguing over some of the other remedies in court on Friday, but the monitor seems all-but-certain.

Our question this morning: Does Arpaio need a monitor?

No, he doesn't need a monitor, he needs NATIONAL AUTHORITY.  Arpaio for Attorney General and pink panties for all you silly progs.


Viva Sheriff Joe!

We need a HERO! Lets run him down, take (and enhance to further defame) mugshots, put him in stripes and pink underwear, throw him a bag with 2 (semi-ripe) oranges, pouch of peanut butter, 2 grain rolls (actually used to keep cell dokes open while mopping in intake, and five sheets of toilet paper (more than that is "contraband "). Then we just forget, change shifts, and the more he bitches the longer we "are busy ". Oh, and God forbid he showed any suicidal tendencies (real or jail staff imagined). He'll be sent to a cell (basically a dog run). Naked (with only a suicide smock, the size of an anorexic maxi pad), no "furniture " only a cement floor, no toilet (only a hole) and by then if he wasn't really wanting to die, he'll be begging like a Mexican to stay with familiar

 He is doing a great job at protecting our borders and making Arizona a safer place to live,but obviously there is some flaws with him and his police officers. I believe that most people that dislike him are playing the "Victim card"because they are either of "Latino" race or have family members that have been affected by him sending illegal's to they're countries that do not have lawful permission to reside in this country. My personal opinion is that before there was random killings involving illegals and now the statistics have proven that they second think coming to Arizona because of the fact that Arpaio and his posse are watching. So for all of you that are criminals or are related to criminals that have been prosecuted related to Arpaio's laws or have been in his jails,You will second think about commiting a crime due to the harsh punishments that follow. In short;Stop complaining,Follow the law's provided and they're shouldn't be a problem.        


For all of you illiterate,immature,"he needs pink undies and green bologna sandwiches", You make my point valid. That you are commiting crimes and you believe since you are of another nationality you should be treated differently.


Have a great day.


I love Arizona AND Arpaio!

He needs to be monitored because he is drunk with power.

Yes and the monitor or "overseer" needs to put his nose to the ground from day one and perform like a veteran bloodhound. Rub his nose with Arpaio's skivvies.

He is a never ending embarrassment to Arizona. He incites angry, hateful people. He doesn't need a moniter. He needs to resign.

Yes, but that begs the question 'Why waste further resources on something well beyond its 'use by' date?

@williamsrussell1202 Wow. Italics, caps , bold and underline, you must be a pretty serious dude. Listen up Capt. awesome, I am as white as they come, I am not a felon nor do i associate with felons. You have a very simplistic view so I will keep my response simple, That bulbous buffoon has committed more crime than 95% of the people his office arrests. So in closing fuck him and fuck you.
