Canadian Teenager Arrested for Mean E-Mails to Joe Arpaio

MCSO


The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of a 16-year-old Canadian kid for sending some mean e-mails to self-proclaimed tough guy Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The e-mails contained "death threats," according to the MCSO. The 16-year-old was arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, because this imminent threat was sitting at a computer in Alberta, Canada.

This arrest comes just a couple of days after Arpaio released an internal memo of deputies on Arpaio's security detail defending their overtime payments totaling more than $120,000 in a one-year span.

Aside from the downright bogus "death threats" against Arpaio, there are cases like this one, where there's no indication of intent -- just some over-the-top e-mails.

In a first e-mail, the youngster -- whose name hasn't been released -- referred to Arpaio as a "massive dickhead," and a "dick-sucking shitface," and said he'd murder Arpaio's whole family.

According to the MCSO, the teenager sent another e-mail, saying he was in Phoenix right now, and was going to shoot Arpaio and his "ugly as hell wife."

Of course, the kid was arrested in Canada, where we can only imagine he was armed with a bowl of ice cream and maybe a bag of Cheetos.

One might reasonably wonder if it is plausible for someone to hijack the IP address of another person to post such messages, similar to the telephone call SWATting?

Well......Arpaio IS a dickhead, little doubt of that. Death threats are not covered under freedom of speech and to threaten the mans family is way out of bounds.

The kid needed arrest, The sheriff is within the boundaries of law here.

Joe is still a massive dickhead though.

Gawd, but Joe is sure looking pickled these days, or least looking like he wishes he were pickled. What a monster -- the scariest creature I've never met. Wish Joe could spend a couple of months in one of his own funhouses -- that'd take the snap right out of his step. Oops -- maybe I should be careful of what I say! In that case, you have to admire someone who's figured out not only to make so many millions in a job that pays only $150,000 a year while simultaneously garnering the love and respect of so many millions more! Ha ha ha!

We don't know if any Canadian laws were actually broken. If so, the jurisdiction belongs to them since any 'crime' was initiated in Canada, not the United States. That said, since the accused is under the age of 18 he likely will have either a hearing as a juvenile or something similar. In any case there would really be no need for the EEO to travel there, since he was never actually a victim of anything, other bad judgment by a goofy kid....

Just saw on Fox10, that the Clown Sheriff is doing another one of his "sweeps" tomorrow, before he gets his baby sitter or complies with ANYTHING he was court ordered to do.  I think this helps his "massive dickhead" reputation!

Now this kid is arrested for e-mails?

Poor, Poor Bozo Joe Arpaio....

Gee, you would think with all these terrorist threats on his life it would have actually happened by now and saved the tax payers a shit load of money from Bozo Joe's corruption and malfeasance.

If this kid is for real & not another stunt by Arpaio to make him a "victim" & gain him some publicity then....as much as I loath Arpaio.....I have to say this kid was stupid. Part of the reason our sheriff is a dickhead is due to his abuse of power & his thousands of arrests made as an act of revenge, for publicity, financial gains, cover up attempts or even boredom. Now, realistically I doubt there was any real danger behind this kids e mails & to call what this kid did a " terrorist" act is using the word a bit loosely but it WAS a threat & if he'd have sent it to any other public figure they would have arrested him too. What I'm wondering is how they were able to arrest him when he lives in Canada? I didn't think they could do that....or at least not so easily.

Let me ask you this -- if somebody were stupuid enough to send Hendley or Lemons an anonymous threatening email saying they are going to be killed alongside their families and pets, should it simply be passed off as only mean and no big deal or should the authorities be called to investigate?

If they think the threatening emails the kid sent to Arpaio is no big deal then if they ever were sent the same kind of emails they should also treat them as simply being mean.  There would be no need for them to call the FBI because the emails would be considered not credible.

Well???????

robert_graham
robert_graham

I'm glad the little weasel was arrested because his emails were more than just mean -- they were outright threats against Arpaio's life.  And in case you don't know it it's called terrorist threats.  Being that the emails originated from not only out of state but out of the country, it is a federal offense and should be tried federally. 

The weasel was tracked down by his IP address.  And evidence of the emails he sent were retrieved from his computer.  It's a slam-dunk case and it will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

But if you insist that they were only "mean" or should be ignored, how would you react if you received emails that said you were going to die?  Would you pass it off as simply being mean and no big deal?  Keep in mind that if you think the emails Arpaio received were meaningless, the same should hold true if you ever received them too.

I think from this point on, The Joker should change his "World's Toughest Sheriff" nickname, to "World's most massive dickhead".


It fits him much better!

There is absolutely no need for any of this garbage to publicized. The elderly elected official (EEO) and his media team use this mush to gain attention to him, trying to make him out as a 'victim'.

Dumbass twits like JAFfy will eat this shit right up.

This is a case where the FBI should handle the 'investigation' and determine if the 'threat' against the senile old fool is credible or not.

I wonder how much this latest round of MCSO/MCSO shurf bullshit will cost county taxpayers?

Also, why isn't MontyPug prosecuting any of these alleged 'threats'? Perhaps MontyPug sees what the sane few of Maricopa County taxpayers see: that these 'threats' are just a part of the Joe Dog and Pony Show.

@Liberty Agreed Liberty, his lacks of means and opportunity isn't the point. He broke the law, and should by rights be made to answer for it. It is when such behaviors go unchecked that  types like him eventually escalate to committing real acts of violence later on. And yes, Joe is a massive dickhead. Yet the boy in question  needs to learn you can't go around threatening to kill others because you have differing political ideologies.

yourproductsucks2
yourproductsucks2 topcommenter

because the "crime" was committed over the internet jurisdiction is not as clear cut as with other situations, however, it's not any different than a crime initiated by telephone. if a suspect calls a victim from a different jurisdictional boundary, the investigationcould be initiated and investigated by either agency. typically a report is initiated by the victim, therefore jurisdiction usually resides from the victims location. You can't expect a victim to locate the suspect's position whenthe call was made, or in this case, where the email was sent.

Robert, terroristic threats, as defined by federal law, requires there be intent to terrorize.

Seems to me you fit this definition perfectly. Perhaps we should report you to the FBI and the US Attorney?

@MaskedMagician1967 You're damn right I am eating it up. Regadless if the threat was credible or not IT IS STILL AGAINST THE LAW TO SEND PEOPLE THREATENING EMAILS.

Do you think that kooks who send the President threatening emails even though they don't have plans to carry out the threats should not be punished? Do you really or should that only apply to people who send Arpaio threatening emails?

You are an idiot!

@robert_graham but it was okay for you to threaten someone with a baseball bat or tire iron, so this should be okay too...........after all, you did it too (same argument you use for everything), only difference would be that this kid could maybe be charged as an adult......................you however with your learning disability might not be in big boy court

Robert, the narcissistic old man has no authority to arrest anyone outside his jurisdiction.

You even said the 'case' should be tried at the FEDERAL level. Last I checked, the delusional old man is a COUNTY employee.

"How about this. Let me tell you here publicly that I will fuck you up - either with a baseball bat, a tire iron or something else.   

YEAH I SAID IT ASSHOLE!!!!!"

So when can we expect notification that you have turned yourself in to the local Law Enforcement of FBI offices for sending people threatening emails????

MaskedMagician1967 topcommenter

Robert, you threatened to kill people on this very forum for signing the recall petition against your hero Arpaio. That's against the law according to you. Perhaps you should do time in federal prison.

Or I can just sue your ass into the next millennium.

The President faces imminent danger every day (he travels to war zones, deals with terrorism and terrorist countries like North Korea, Iran, Syria, etc., and to prevent assassination attempts rides in a limo with 5 inch thick steel doors, 3 inches of bulletproof glass, tires made of Kevlar, etc.)

Arpaio does NONE of those, FYI.

YOU are the biggest idiot. BTW, still think I'm an illegal?

internet crimes originating from other countries are ignored on most occasions. the RCMP has agreed to file charges against this kid, in Canada. they have assumed jurisdiction in this case, and Collins is right that in this case mcso had no jurisdictional authority in this case.

Robert,what, pray tell, am I 'hoping for' you little weirdo?Phoenix PD has no jurisdiction in another state. They would have jurisdiction if and only if the rapist or murderer lived in Phoenix. The other town's police department would have to arrest the alleged suspect. Just curious, why hasn't MontyPug brought ANY of Arpaio's 'threats' to court? If Arpaio made the arrest and it's deemed good, why not have the MCAO try the case?I fully support equal rights for EVERYONE, a mantra of the Republican Party. Did you know it was a Democratic President that paid off the national debt? (Andrew Jackson, our nation's 7th President, paid the federal debt off in 1835. He was a Dem.) Did you know it was a Democratic President who declared the 14th Amendment in effect? (Andrew Johnson, our nation's 17th President, was President in 1868 when the Amendment took effect. He was a Dem.) And it was LBJ, a Texas Dem, who signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. My favorite Republican is President Theodore Roosevelt. He did alot for the people. He promised everyone a fair share under his policies (known as a square deal).

@MaskedMagician1967 At least that's w hat you are hoping for.  Does Phoenix PD have the jurisdiction to go after a rapist or murderer found to be living in another jurisdiction? Of course they do.

Your logic sucks. Just because Arpaio is a COUNTY employee doesn't mean a case cannot be tried in federal court. The FBI is getting involved and it will be them who try the case, not Arpaio. 

I'm glad you are not a libtard like you say but you sure do act like one.

Robert and Joe are firm believers that the law should only be applied to certain people..............unfortunately they dont think it should only be applied to law breakers, if they did, we could wait a few months to hear of Roberts time in tent city.                               Cyber threats!!!! what part of illegal doesnt Robert get????

@MaskedMagician1967 No I never threatened to kill anybody. Simply saying once that I thought it would be okay for Border patrol to shoot people is not a threat.  If it is, then everybody who posts here that they hope Arpaio is taken out is guilty of a crime too.
