    Perhaps the Feds should listen to the People of Texas...and not their liberal political agenda.

    Being legally innocent is not the same as being actually innocent.

    If I murder someone, I am guilty from the moment I murder them even though I am PRESUMED innocent until I am convicted.
    I may be wrong.

    Some of the allegations in that article are egregious.
    I may be wrong.

    Let's let the court decide. If they decide in MCSO favor, will you accept the verdict and admit your opinion was wrong.. If the courts finds Arpaio guilty, I will accept the verdict.

    Seems by the local tv news, one of the reasons its going to court is MCSO asked for specifics (evidence) to the alleged wrongdoings. DOJ, would not provide it. I would also say, see you in court.

    That's an indication of nothing. Playing to nativism in order to win over the majority doesn't mean it's right!

    Or perhaps it is simply a sign that Arizona citizens are sick and tired of little to nothing serious being done to stem the inflow of illegal immigrants. If you agree with the Sheriff's actions or not we have a real problem with illegal immigrants in AZ and I believe its citizens want something done even if those actions are not always pretty or perhaps even legal.

    If law enforcement isn't following the law that's a serious problem. It doesn't matter what the situation is.

    If the U.S. government is going to refuse to do their duty and control illegal immigration, then the states have no choice but to take steps on their own. Both Obama and Bush refused to do a damn thing about it, they're trying to buy votes, all the while millions of illegal aliens are invading the country from the south. I'm all in favor of Brewer and Arpaio doing whatever it takes to stem the tide. After all, isn't that what Arpaio is being paid to do? Defend the law and hold people accountable who break it?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
