I have no doubt that it's being followed up on by federal agencies, AS IT SHOULD BE, but the cartels have already made far more credible threats on U.S. officials, IMHO. And those threats received little national attention.
Arpaio, in my book, is a huge attention whore. That can never be forgotten in stories about him.

Do I think the cartels are a huge threat? Oh, hell yes. I've said for years that Mexico was a much bigger safety risk to our country than Iraq. But this story doesn't make me feel it more strongly, it's just more of what I knew was already going on, and it's not a particularly credible report of a specific threat.
This is not new.

Arpaio, though, is a complete ruhtard. I'm pretty sure they're already taking security precautions with him, but I don't take him seriously at this point on any subject.
For the record, in my former job, two people threatened to kill me. One was a member of GD, another was a member of 21st Street. Some death threats are more serious than others. I would put this in the less serious category. In other words, I reported it to my department, but didn't spent a lot of time worrying about it.
Do I think precautions should be taken? Absolutely.
Do I think that this will turn out to be a farce? Absolutely.

I am fairly certain it may amount to nothing too. In the meantime, I would like to make a show to the cartels that we are not lax in protecting our own citizens...even the ones we detest.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
