ABC 15 Airs Joe Arpaio Cribs Episode

ABC 15 has been teasing an exclusive interview with Sheriff Joe Arpaio over the last few days, promising that "no question or topic is off limits."

Forgive us for believing that such controversial questions would be along the lines of, "Sheriff, why do the taxpayers deserve to pay the bill to defend your office's racial profiling? And why have you continued to defy the federal judge in Melendres v. Arpaio?"

The "exclusive" was actually like an episode of MTV's Cribs, where a camera crew goes on a tour of some celebrity's home.

The phrases "racial profiling" or "civil rights" were not used a single time in a segment that's more than seven minutes long.

Anyone who's spent any time in Phoenix won't be surprised that a local media outlet bowed down to kiss Arpaio's ring, but we thought we'd see something a little different nowadays, with the promise of no question off-limits and Arpaio actively attempting to dodge a federal judge's orders to remedy his office's racial-profiling practices.

Instead, here's what we learned from the no-holds-barred exclusive report on Arpaio:

  • He doesn't eat breakfast.

  • He has seven remotes for his entertainment center, but only uses one.

  • Like many Italians, he has panettone in the fridge.

  • He has a 14-year-old car (it appears to be a Cadillac DeVille) with 900 miles. He says he doesn't know how to put gas in it.

  • He watches Netflix.

At one point, Arpaio's asked if he has any regrets since he's been in office.

That the constitutional rights of Latinos were trampled on by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office?

Nope.

He says when he was first running for sheriff back in '92, he argued that the county sheriff should have been an appointed position, not an elected one.

"Can you believe what I said?" Arpaio asked. "I would have been fired."

Ya don't say.

ABC 15 has always been and always will be an Arpaio cock sucker.

Sadly this story is what it is a racist from another generation with the power like old Sheriff Bull Conner's in a bygone era able to use his power and position to exercise his racism, guess the only consolation is in the end, when old Arpaio meets Jesus he will not know him, since for him to be known he has to repent and if one believes his own words he feels no guilt and without guilt one never repents anything! Hence Arpaio and the unrepentant Conner's can debate for all eternity how they ended on that lake of fire!

Joe is head of the jails, not the prisons. The prisons are under the Dept of Corrections.

But, he's an Arizona public official and legendary law enforcer. He's SUCH a tough guy! Yet, if left to his own devices he couldn't survive for even a week. This is why when the the day comes, I know that the will at least be less assholes.

"America's Most Corrupt, and Racist Sheriff" sure is a legend in his own mind.

Good thing when every one working directly for Arpaio in management of the M.C.S.O. were found to be massively corrupt that good ole Joe couldn't recall a thing under oath.

Professionally using "I don't recall" while under oath is both a lie, and a crime.

Justice will soon find you on its own Ole Joe.

Telling it like it ain't, only stupid idiots get their news from channels 5 and 15.

We know why his car only has 900 miles on it.  They don't let the clown drive any more after he ran over a boulder in a parking lot and totaled a county car.  (and MCSO refused to give him a breathalyzer).


This also means that the Joke uses county cars for his own campaign events.  Isn't that one of the charges of illegal activity that HorniBoi is now facing?

Below,is a copy of the "core personality traits" found in sociopaths.


Remind you of anybody?

Facet 1: Interpersonal

    Glibness/superficial charm
    Grandiose sense of self-worth
    Pathological lying
    Cunning/manipulative

Facet 2: Affective

    Lack of remorse or guilt
    Emotionally shallow
    Callous/lack of empathy
    Failure to accept responsibility for own actions

Bet Ch 15 didn't cover this either.

Yep, you reflect perfectly, the mentality of the Arpaiophile (sounds like a new, painful type of hemorrhoid that is really expensive to cure)

Very disappointing. I would have rather heard just one "hard hitting" question like, Do you think its fair that taxpayers pay for all your lawsuits? Of course he either would have refused to answer or something lame,whatever, doesn't matter.  Let's see if the "toughest sheriff" can answer a tough question or not.  TV 15 whimps!!  Oh lets keep ALL our viewers happy, is not going to happen ABC 15, you lost another viewer me, who at least watched you after Castle but no more.

Channel 15 tried yet again to do a "Turd Polish" on Arpaio, but no matter how much Arpaio's butt sucking media outlets polish him he is still 100% corrupt, racist "Turd".
