    Arpaio Faces a New Sheriff in Town

    A few days after the “Toughest Sheriff in America” oversaw his 60th Latino-harassing raid in the Phoenix area, the Obama administration’s top civil-rights lawyer flew to Phoenix and slappedSheriff Joe Arpaio and his office with a monumental civil-rights tort alleging rampant constitutional abuses, including widespread racial profiling of Latinos. The suit also claims the sheriff violated the civil rights of his critics by “illegal retaliation” that included baseless lawsuits and meritless administrative actions.

    All of its alleged. So until a jury says otherwise its all just hearsay.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    People don't understand that. Someone can be alleged of doing anything, until they are tried and convicted in a court of law, they are innocent.

    It seems 95% of the population doesn't realize that.

    More BS.

    So many people seem to get their panties in a knot over profiling. Heres an idea people, if you really don't like "racial" profiling, the simple solution is make it not work. Perhaps, I don't know, say help the police catch criminals in your community istead of harrassing them when they try to. The reason "racial" profiling keeps popping up is because it is an effective tool for police. If the communities that may end up being profiled worked together and with police to clean up criminals in their communities, then "racial" profiling will eventually disapear because it won't work anymore and then only truely racists officers will use it.

    I have no problem with his enforcement of laws, in fact, I would very much welcome someone like him in my own county. All law enforcement officers, regardless of the level they are hired at should enforce all laws, not just the ones at their level. In all other areas of law enforcement, the Feds have few problem seeking and receiving help from local law enforcement. I doubt very much if a local officer arrests a peson from the FBI's most wanted list who didn't commit any crimes locally is going to be censured and disciplined for doing so, but if they run accross an illegal immigrant, all hell breaks lose if the local officer acts. This is just plain stupid, entering the US without proper documentation and authorization is a crime.

    All Illegal Immigrants are criminals, even if they commit no other crime, they have commited a criminal act by illegally entering the US. All Law Enforcement personnel and agencies have the responsibility to Enforce Laws, all laws. In Arizona, it would be impossible to enforce immigration laws without it being very heavily biased towards Hispanics. Some call it racial profiling because it is heavily biased towards Hispanics, but, except for a few Chinese and other Asians that come in through California, pretty much all of the arrest of illegal immigrants are going to be Hispanic in Arizona.

    People like to prejudge and they know it. Gets the job done even if they never bring it to trial. A lot of people are biased and a lot more are just idiots.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Yes, it is BS. The fact is, Arizona has a massive problem with illegal immigration from Mexico. The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens are hispanic. How is going after the group that is responsible for the majority of criminals profiling? There are areas where they have massive problems with black gangs or hispanic gangs or asian gangs, how is it wrong, when looking for gang-related crime, to go after those groups? Oh no, we'd better be pulling over whites on the highway, even though we know they're not in the targetted gangs, because we can't profile!

    It's really idiotic. Go after the criminals. If the criminals are almost entirely from one group, then go after that group. I don't care if that group is black or white, male or female, young or old. Just go get them!
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You're not using the word "hearsay" correctly, FYI.

    Good. The guy's been a walking civil rights violation for decades, and he's been nothing but a useless money sucking windbag for the community he allegedly serves. He's already cost his state millions of dollars in damages related to civil rights abuses and other related torts. So from that perspective this is nothing new, just a large scale.

    And yet...he keeps getting re-elected to his Office.

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