Joe Arpaio, Crybaby Sheriff, Wants Do-Over of His "Corrective Statement" in Melendres

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

Is there a diaper big enough to fit big ol' baby Sheriff Joe Arpaio?

Yep, Arpaio's pitching a fit like the spoiled, soiled octogenarian that he is, demanding a do-over on a "corrective statement" that his attorney Tim Casey recently submitted to the federal court in the ACLU's groundbreaking civil rights case Melendres v. Arpaio.

In his filing last week, Casey indicated that Arpaio was willing to sign the statement, which is to be sent to all MCSO employees, per the court's instructions.

Read Arpaio's top pettifogger Tim Casey's recent, asinine filing in Melendres.

But that was before the media got hold of it and pointed out that Arpaio's corrective statement admitted to various mischaracterizations of U.S. District Court Judge G. Murray Snow's ruling.

The statement also summarized in plain language Snow's findings and orders in the case, such as Snow's conclusion that the MCSO impermissibly used race in its operations.

Read Casey's suggested amendments to the MCSO's "corrective statement."

On Tuesday, Casey submitted a re-worded order on his master's behalf, kvetching to Snow that:

"Since the date of the filing, instead of accurately reporting to the public that the Draft Corrective Statement is a summary of the Court's Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law for the benefit of MCSO personnel, the mainstream media, Spanish language media, and a local tabloid have represented to the public that the Draft Corrective Statement is, among other things, an admission by Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio that he and the MCSO did, in fact, use racial profiling tactics in its law enforcement operations."

Actually, the MCSO's own appeal concedes that Arpaio and the MCSO used racial profiling during the sheriff's notorious anti-immigrant sweeps.

Check this passage from the original "draft corrective statement," which Casey submitted last week:

I agree arpaio makes us look bad I don't understand why people keep reelecting an obvious racist

So you've been bashing Arpaio every day for years. He keeps getting elected. It's like people vote for him because they hate you. Maybe you should write about something else so he will lose.

Arpaio is a narcissitic windbag. You ask anyone in other states or countries about AZ and they ask about this worthless skin suit. He ignored copious amounts of child abuse cases in La Mirage as he was chasing bus boys out of the country. He is guilty of criminal neglect and I hope he gets his one day. He's not for the people, he is for himself and re-election. Term limits already. Please!

God I pray for the day for the joe show to be over ...it looks like he's going to drag it out another season.Whether or not the sheriff likes it, there is a distinction in immigration law that was not understood by the population and, with all due respect to you, it is not understood by the sheriff, which is that it is not a criminal violation to be in this country without authorization,” said the judge, G. Murray Snow of United States District Court here, staring down the 81-year-old sheriff, whose tenure has been framed largely by his unforgiving stance against illegal immigrants.

Wouldn't it be funny if Arpaio accidently told the truth once?!

For better or worse, we have to admit the good sheriff had his own reality TV show long before it became popular.  We can always count on him to be in the news and provide us with some small measure of entertainment.

MSCO assumed again that people have no reading comprehension skills, and that people wouldn't understand what the letter actually said.  Well, that seems to be true of the folks that support the clown sheriff - just not true for people with a brain.  It wasn't until people in the public with a functioning brain saw the letter,did MCSO and their lawyers understand what was actually SAID in the letter!


As Lisa Allen herself said in the past "Educated people don't vote for him (Arpaio)"


How in the world could Casey think he could get by with submitting an updated letter without the COURT REQUIRED review and agreement by the plaintiffs?  Are Joke's lawyers REALLY this stupid? (well, it sure seems they ARE this stupid!)


Just give Arpaio until 5pm today to sign the first letter, or charge him with contempt, and let him lay chocolate eggs in pink boxers inside a cell until Monday, and then tell him again to sign it!

I am surprised that Arpaio's fund raising letters and statements haven't been brought up yet.  Too early in the morning to look for it but i believe Lemons covered it about a month agp?

Casey says it all quite nicely for Snow in one sentence where he says "the sheriffs decision should NEVER be construed as agreement".      that would mean every time he told the judge he would comply..............he was lying. he NEVER intended compliance. he was only telling the judge what he thought the judge wanted to hear. that would mean he is not taking it serious. flex those judicial muscles Snow, if you dont, they will atrophy. Joe is setting the example that the law and the courts do not need to be honored or obeyed. it is Snows duty to re-enforce respect and compliance of the courts and its authority

   "The defendants are in contempt, and Snow should lay some wood to Arpaio's fanny to ensure compliance with his order." ...Well said Mr. Lemons.  0ne day, some day, this dusty dry town will have a new  sheriff, oh what a day !

Let's just hope the senior citizens who keep voting this asshole into office will die off and leave more sensible people in charge of determining things at the polls. Or, let's just hope the old man dies off himself. Isn't it funny how God will kill a bunch of innocent high school kids on a California freeway, but corrupt murderers just keep on enjoying the good life?

I'm confused... if the Phoenix New Times is so against racial profiling, then how do they explain taking the mugshots of detainees and making fun of them in a weekly column. They seem to assert that so many are unfairly arrested but then make money off of their arrests via advertising space. When you throw away integrity, you cease to become a legitimate source.

based on a legal strategy?? what kind of legal strategy requires you getting slapped with contempt of court?......................................maybe in Joe world its being strategic.........but in my world its gonna be pretty damn funny. i would just love to see him have that greasy mop shaved off his noggin and see him picking up trash on the chain gang..................just thinking it brought a tear to my eye (and really seeing it would bring forth a deluge from JAFfy's)

@Douche Don't forget this rag is bankrupt and has very few readers with voting rights. So, I don't think its Lemons' fault. Although, it is quite humorous that he can't seem to write about anything but Joe.

Don't, when the Supreme Court ripped BS1070 apart back in 2012, they said the exact same thing.

@DNichols It would be nice if Lemons would tell the truth for once. Arpaio does tell the truth -- you just don't like what he has to say and does -- that's all.

We need to also have a jail cam on Arpaio, to insure he's actually in a cell if held in contempt - otherwise he'll probably  just be in his office (in drag), and getting fed beanie weenies by Ava....

That sentence may be enough to push Judge Snow over the edge Zigs. Let's see what he does.

@danzigsdaddy  We all know Joke has no useful skills, even for work on a chain gang.  Instead he'll be weaving "This if for Joe" trashcans and making "Joe is hot SHIT" potholders to be sold in Sun City.....

@azn:

You may be right, I was told that Arpaio told a small group of potential Posse Members: " I 've gotten so many death threats that I have my wife start our car in the mornings."

Perhaps he did tell the truth once?!

But I'm sure if asked he "Would not recall".

@danzigsdaddy  If Joke was on a chain gang picking up trash, let's face it.  Within 30 minutes, he'd poke himself in the foot with the pointy "picker-upper", and then be on Fox news claiming another imaginary attack from part of the "Sidewalk Crack/Drugstore Boulder/Hairdresser/Joe Arizona" gang!

@Dontbelieveit Ha ha poor lemons has to pretend he's a fan and defend his swill. Sad. I can just imagine Lemons spending his whole sad life obsessing over big joe. Someday, after Joe retires having served about 30 years, and nearing 100 years old, Lemons will take credit for forcing him out.
