Joe Arpaio Called on Carpet (Again), Judge Orders Dissemination of "Corrective Statement" to All MCSO Personnel

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

U.S. District Court Judge G. Murray Snow finally may be catching a clue about Sheriff Joe Arpaio, his team of beige-shirted flunkies, and all the lies they've been spreading about Snow's findings and orders in the ACLU's big civil rights lawsuit Melendres v. Arpaio.

Today, Snow filed an enforcement order, rejecting as "unacceptable" the MCSO's recent, proposed changes to a "corrective statement" that Snow had demanded the MCSO create.

Instead, Snow ordered that the MCSO "immediately disseminate" the corrective statement to all MCSO personnel, with the requirement that all sheriff's office employees sign an attestation that they've read and understood the statement, which also summarizes the court's rulings in Melendres.

Read Judge Snow's new enforcement order in Melendres.

Additionally, all staff "holding the rank of sergeant or above" must read Snow's "entire 142-page Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law," as well as his 59-page injunction, describing the steps the MCSO must take to make itself right with the U.S. Constitution.

Snow also empowers his monitor Robert Warshaw and Warshaw's staff to "verify compliance" with this order. Pop-quizzes after the fact, I imagine.

Writes Snow:

"The Monitor is authorized to question MCSO personnel, randomly or otherwise, to determine their compliance with this Enforcement Order and to ascertain whether their level of knowledge of the Court's orders is consistent with the effort required by the procedure specified above. The Monitor shall inform the parties and the Court of MCSO personnel found not to be in satisfactory compliance..."

Finally, Snow scheduled a status conference for May 7, stating that, "If this Order has not been fully implemented, Sheriff Arpaio's attendance will be required and he may be subject to questioning by the Court."

To say the least, it's pretty obvious that Snow is livid.

"The misinformation, misunderstanding, and confusion caused by the inaccurate
statements and inappropriate training that has occurred throughout the MCSO cannot
wait until such future training or briefing may be approved and implemented to be
corrected," he notes at one point. "They require immediate attention."

JAFfy, did you change your name again or have you just given up on the fetid fool?  Yet another stellar prediction, JAFfy. Is this what winning Melendres vs. Arpaio looks like to you? 

Your hero getting schooled, big time.

has anybody noticed the update and its contents? Joe is relieved that Judge Snow has excluded him from the whole process with MCSO.................i see that 2 different ways, #1, Joe is passing the buck by letting MCSO deal with all the punishment for HIS crimes, and #2, the old bastard really doesnt see the whole weeding out process happening as Judge Snow is excluding him from MCSO

With Arias's new claims, I'd  typically ignore it as she is a media whore.  


But as it's MCSO on the other side, it seems to me "media whore vs media whore", and based on MCSO's history of bull shit medical care, I thinking MCSO once again screwed up!


Maybe the Joke just needed a distraction from the FACT Snow handed him his pink ass on a platter last Thursday!


And Jaffy with get a new website that will only get 10 hits, all from the ".lol" domain!

Several years later, at the poor house….

Old Codger: “Hey Lemons, what did you use to do?”

Lemons: “I spend my life attacking a corrupt person.”

Old Codger: “Oh really. Was it a ruthless dictator that killed women and children? Or, a sick billionaire whose quest for the dollar poisoned the drinking water of millions? Was it a ruthless strongman who killed and maimed the weak to increase his own power and wealth?”

Lemons: “No, it was just a little old fat publicly elected country sheriff. But he was really mean.”

Old Codger: “What? Ha ha… Well, did you get him?”

Lemons: “Well, he eventually retired on a fat pension when he reached 100. My paper went bankrupt but I’m pretty sure he wasn’t fond of the articles I wrote every day.”

Old Codger: “ah… and now you are here on public assistance living the dream. Well done my friend.”

@danzigsdaddy  Joke got told he's not important and got told by Snow to just sit down and shut up and that ALL people attached to MCSO would have to attest to understanding the orders.


Maybe the Joke will tell us why the feds forced him into early retirement at age 50 - something about a woman in an elevator, is what I hear!


And let's not forget it was the FEDS that gave the Joker the nickname "nickle bag Joe"....

@danzigsdaddy    Can I add "Pigs (three different ones)" from Pink Floyd "Animals"?


"Big man, pig man, ha ha charade you are.

You well heeled big wheel, ha ha charade you are.
And when your hand is on your heart,
You're nearly a good laugh, 
Almost a joker,
With your head down in the pig bin,
Saying "Keep on digging."
Pig stain on your fat chin.
What do you hope to find.
When you're down in the pig mine.
You're nearly a laugh,
You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry."

@MaskedMagician1967  she is claiming she got Hep from a dirty needle used in her TB test (possible) and also claiming that Joe is making her recite the pledge of allegiance to the flag or she wont get fed (dont buy that for one second). they already questioned Joe about it on ABC15. he denies the pledge part (i believe him on that one) and said as for IF she does have HEP and DID get it from a used needle..........thats med services, not him (actually true on that too). but as a rather amusing sidenote..............if you listen to the phone interview, Joe sounds like he is coming down with a cold or the Flu................must be court time coming up

I never could get into the Grateful Dead. I do like "Touch of Gray".

The Rolling Stones have some good songs.

I never could get into Jethro Tull and Traffic.

If Freddie hadn't passed away, Queen would be, in my opinion, one of the best British bands around.

All Aerosmith's band members are still alive and from what I've heard they put on a good show.

I enjoy listening to the Doors. Jim Morrison didn't take any shit from anyone. He especially hated cops like the old man. (I know the Fetid Fossil of MCSO isn't a cop, but you get my point.)

@MaskedMagician1967  Ok, I can agree with #1, but #6 needs to be moved up, #2 and #4 have to be moved to low talent show band, and what about Tull and Traffic?


And the Stones are really a matter of taste! 


But not  The Grateful Dead?
