The "racial profiling" carried out by the MCSO has meant that some folks who have lived in the region a bit longer than Sheriff Joe have also been targeted.
then there is Arpaio's blatant racism which has caused him to run his mouth more than once, probably some of those past words will come back to haunt him in a courtroomMembers of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona are upset by the immigration tactics of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Tribal members in the town of Guadalupe say they are being pulled over because they look Mexican. It's part of Arpaio's effort to crack down on people who are in the U.S. illegally.
Why not? What's good for the goose should be fine for the gander, right?What was Arpaio's response to the news that his Kris Kobach-trained deputies has violated the civil rights of a single mother and terrorized her no end?
"That's just normal police work, " he shrugged in a news conference following the raid. "Sometimes you do have probable cause, you do take people in for questioning, and they're released."
So it's arrest 'em if they're brown first, and sort 'em out later. False arrest and imprisonment be damned.
Perhaps the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI should follow Arpaio's way of doing things. There's probable cause enough out there that Arpaio's deprived others of their civil rights and done so under the color of law.
So arrest him, and sort out the details later.
