MCSO


The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has scheduled "community outreach meetings," as ordered by a federal judge in the Melendres v. Arpaio civil rights case.

According to the judge's order, "The MCSO shall clarify for the public at these meetings that it does not enforce immigration laws except to the extent that it is enforcing Arizona and federal criminal laws."

Of course, Arpaio and MCSO still act as immigration enforcers to an extent, including the workplace raids carried out under state identity-theft statutes.

The Sheriff's Office released a public announcement yesterday giving the times and locations for the meetings:
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office will hold our first community outreach meetings on Saturday December 21, 2013 at 9:30am in all patrol districts throughout the county. Interested citizens are encouraged to attend. The purpose of these meetings is to answer, where possible, public questions or concerns about the Sheriff's Office patrol operations, to outline the changes to patrol policy regarding traffic stops and to inform the public of the upcoming changes to policy, training, data collection and records management. English and Spanish-speaking Sheriff's personnel will be present and available to answer questions from the public.

La Oficina del Sheriff del Condado de Maricopa llevará a cabo nuestras primeras reuniones de promoción comunitario en todos los distritos de patrulla en el condado el sábado, 21 de diciembre 2013, a las 9:30 de la mañana. Miembros de la comunidad interesados en asistir serán bienvenidos. El propósito de estas reuniones es para dar respuestas, cuando sea posible, a las preguntas o preocupaciones que tenga el público acerca de las operaciones de la patrulla del Oficina del Aguacil, y para explicar los nuevos cambios introducidos a las pólizas a cerca de las paradas de tráfico y los cambios en póliza, en entrenamiento, la colección de datos y gestión de registros (documentos). Empleados de la Oficina del Aguacil que hablan español estarán presentes y disponibles para responder a las preguntas del público.

Meetings will be held at the following locations:
District 1: 9531 East Riggs Road, Sun Lakes
District 2: 920 East Van Buren, Avondale 85323
District 3:Sun City: 10831 Sunland Drive 85351, Sun City Posse Building
District 4:Cave Creek: Cave Creek Town Hall, 37622 N. Cave Creek Rd 85331
District 6:Queen Creek: Queen Creek Library, 21802 S. Ellsworth Rd 85142
District 7:Fountain Hills: Ftn. Hills Community center, 13001 N. La Montana Dr. 85268
Lakes: 7307 North Bush Highway, Mesa AZ 85215
The court order says MCSO had to hold these meetings within 90 days of that order, and they have to be held at least once every year.

These meetings are different from the ones that are required to be held after "any Significant Operations or Patrols in the affected District(s)," such as the one recently held after Arpaio's sweep in the West Valley.

"The meetings present an opportunity for MCSO representatives to listen to community members' experiences and concerns about MCSO practices implementing this Order, including the impact on public trust," Judge Snow's order states. "MCSO representatives shall make reasonable efforts to address such concerns during the meetings and afterward."

See the specific points of these meetings in the following excerpt from the order:

These meetings are located in Arpaio's Geeser Possee member strong holds, no doubt ole Joe will be giving out free M.C.S.O. pink viagra pills to white Geesers that show up to support racism, especially if they bring thier own white sheets?!

Really reahing out to Hispanic's that have been Profiled right Joe?

How worthless.

DNichols
DNichols

Arpaio should use these outreach meetings to his advantage?!

Two birds with one stone?

Announce to the Public that Arpaio's M.C.S.O. dosen't "Enforce" laws against child abuse either?

Just sayin.

It seems that the joker is having meetings in all the wrong places, except where they are needed.

When was the last time he did a " crime sweep" in  Sun City , Sun Lakes , Fountain Hills ?

I hope Judge Snow sees thru this BULLSHIT...

I haven't seen any meetings scheduled for outside the Phoenix metro area, unless I missed something. Seems odd, since Maricopa County is about 9,000 square miles and Phoenix is actually very little of the county.

Ill bet within 5 minutes at any one of these meetings Hispanic's along with their illegal brethren will start acting out and will be asked to leave or escorted out.

Father time is the only cure for old Arapaio, in time father time will deliver old Arpaio to that lake of fire to help stoke it with coal along side his predecessor Sheriff Bull Conners!;-) All his fans will follow in time!:-)

Odd that they're all taking place in different locations ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

I'll be there!  See you on Saturday, 12/21. I'll be wearing my SUPPORT SHERIFF JOE tee shirt and I wil be giving them out there.

Call (602) 777-6632 to listen to Joe's message about illegal immigration. If state and federal officers can enforce every other federal law such as bank robbery, kidnapping and drug offenses, they can most certainly enforce federal immigration law too.  Or would you prefer the next time an alarm comes in to the police of a bank robbery in progress, dispatchers respond by saying call the feds because bank robbery is a federal offense?


Also listen to the recordings about NO AMNESTY at (602) 926-2873 and tell me if those Hispanics against amnesty are also supposedly racist.


Well????

Lydia, District 5 is Lakes.  It is comprised of county parks and lakes recreational areas which are not comprised of the highest Hispanic populations in the valley.  


Bnsp, the patrol district which covers county areas in south and west Phoenix is District 2.


You guys could go on mcso.org and get this information readily available to the public like I did.

@DNichols I don't know,now that I think about it,it just might be worth the drive to one of these "community outreach meetings". Can you you imagine the reaction from a room full of Arpaio's Teabagger supporters when he tells them that MCSO cannot enforce immigration law ?

@Lydia And Arpaio will either skip all of them or show up where the most elderly group of his birther-wacko followers will come down to support their clown.

@Lydia ... Joe has the strange combination of omnipresence and senility. He can never remember where he is even though he's everywhere at all times. It's kind of awesome and sad at the same time. But don't worry, he'll be at every meeting.

Hey Jaffy,


Does the Sun City Puss.........I mean Posse Building have separate changing stations for the Barney's? Must be expensive to buy two changing tables that big.

MaskedMagician1967

Robert, it's more expensive to government to deport an illegal immigrant ($12,500 to deport a single one) to grant them relief and live here.

Plus, you forget that two Republican presidents have already granted amnesty.

Immigration is an issue exclusive to the federal government. The most conservative Supreme Court since 1909 says so. Read United States v. Arizona.

Thanks for the clarification.  For some reason I thought this was going along Board of Sup district lines.

@john043012 County, John. Not country. The elderly guy needs to understand there is more to Maricopa COUNTY than just Phoenix. That's my point. It has nothing to do with the population of the Phoenix area as compared with other cities in other states.

@TommyCollins There have been similar meetings like this before and they have all ended with those people being escorted out what makes these meetings any different ?

@TommyCollins if you could do me a favor and pick me up one too Tommy, i would appreciate it. so long as JAFfy is paying for the printing, i cant think of a better rag to be house training my dog with (i just hope it has Joe's picture, that way i can scoop up the dog's mess and have fun all at the same time)

You can say what you want but we all know that what you are saying is not true. You can try bashing me all you want but it won't work. You'll tell as many lies and facts that are untrue because you are backed in a corner.

What ever happened with the rants about my working at a Burger King when that was never true?

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@robert_graham and with every little post and phone message you make in your warped little world of self justification you do realize you are drawing the ire of more people who may or may not do worse than just exposing your personal life right? i am trying to help you robert by telling you to lay off your little crusade. you are drawing lines in the sand without knowing just who you are challenging

robert_graham
robert_graham

It is directed at every libtard who thinks they can silence conservatives.


By the way, have you heard about the new Limbaugh Law? Listen to it at (602) 926-2873 by pushing 1 shortly after it answers.


Oh and come 2016, our next President will be a Conservative Republican. The Dems are already finsihed thanks to Obama.

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@robert_graham who are you directing that at Robert? i am actually a pretty conservative republican Twit, and i am not trying to shut you up, i am trying to warn you off of another train wreck like the one you WERE warned about and DID walk into, if you didnt, we all wouldnt know about your domain names, job in fresno, or any of the other salient facts of your life that you didnt want exposed

robert_graham
robert_graham

I have never walked into any train wreck. It will be you who is heading for a wreck.  

I see how it is, you want to shut me up and you'll stop at nothing in an attempt to do so.

You'll never shut me up though.  I will never cave to your libtard politcal agenda. I guarantee you that.


danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@robert_graham  you do what you feel you have to. i have tried to give you friendly advice before, and you chose to ignore it (and look how that ended)..... you best learn how to take advice Robert before you walk yourself into another train wreck like you did last time...............and once again, my advice to you is to stop agitating

robert_graham
robert_graham

Okay fine, call the FBI, Secret Service, US Marshals, ICE or even the FDA or the DEA. You'll be laughed at and just might even be arrested for making a false police report. Go ahead and try though.  You're an idiot.

robert_graham
robert_graham

Like I said, I have never threatened you but if you think anything I have ever said to you is a threat then why haven't you called the cops?  I welcome you to do just that. But be forewarned that you'll be heckled and laughed at. Maybe that is the reason you haven't reported me... because you already know that, right?

@robert_graham Why would I call Arpaio, he doesn't enforce the law.


I'm dealing with this at a Federal level.

Me psychotic? HA!  You better take a good look at yourself in the mirror asshole.


I think I'll add a menu choice about you on (602) 926-2873.  I'll title it PHYCHO NEW TIMES BLOGGERS.

Good, then post where I have threatened you.


You can't, since I never did that.


But you sure did threaten me with a baseball bat or tire iron and you know it.

I never acknowledged anyting. I am keeping captures of your posts too.

@robert_graham


Yes you did and you know it and acknowledged it in your post above. I have it captured as do others.


You know you did it and are now a hypocrite for not turning yourself in.

@robert_graham

I have NEVER threatened you nor praised threats against Arpaio and you saying so is a lie, plain and simple.

robert_graham
robert_graham

I have never threatened you. But if you feel so strongly otherwise, call Arpaio and report me. They'll just laugh at you!!!!

robert_graham
robert_graham

I threatened you no more than you have threatened me. But one has to wonder why you have always praised threats against Arpaio but not threats directed at you?

robert_graham

Fine then, don't listen but you said what you said because you don't like what is said.  However, it's the truth and nothing but the truth!

"That's besides the point. Fact is, illegal is illegal... period."


Really?? Then why, if you are so for all illegal acts to be punished, have you not turned yourself in after threatening me like you have??? 


You are the one committing an illegal act when you threaten to FUCK ME UP WITH A TIRE IRON OR BASEBALL BAT, like you know you did, in print here on NT.


You are also further committing an illegal act by not turning yourself in for the threats you made..


Hypocrite much are you?


You better go turn yourself in and stop your illegal activities, since according to you, illegal is illegal.. PERIOD

robert_graham
robert_graham

That's besides the point. Fact is, illegal is illegal... period.  If you think that illegal immigration is a victimless crime, think again. You better listen to my recordings about illegal immigration by calling (602) 926-2873.

robert_graham
robert_graham

Maybe then bank robbery, kidnapping and the like should also be shot down too? Maybe there should be no state laws that are also federal laws. Is that what you want?
