    You have no idea what you are talking about. Here is a fox article, so that you don't have to worry about news articles by scumbag sympathizers. Arpaio claims hands-off role in corruption cases - FOX5 Vegas - KVVU

    Joe response to the illegal actions of his Chief deputy and lead prosecutor was the "I don't recall" line. In the spirit of innocent until proven guilty, let take him at his word and assume he really didn't know. Do you really think someone who can't even spot years of illegal activities done in public by own his department is fit to be a Sheriff?

    Whats really interesting here is that people still can't seem to get him on charges of racial profiling. So now they seem to be taking a different tact. Smearing him by blaming him for some other persons actions.

    Welcome to the USA folks! Isn't life GRAND!

    Cops in the same department normally do not investigate thier fellow cops. It normally takes investigation done by an outside source like the FBI, DA, or Internal Services. Which is understandable as cops normally have to have the same kind of trust in thier fellow cops as someone who is in the military must have the same kind of trust in thier mates.

    A little of both. I like some of the things he's done to try to save the state's prison system money, and I dislike others. I like that he wants to do something about illegal immigration, but for the most part I dislike what he's doing about it.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    If you wanted political opinions specifically, why did you ask a question that had nothing to do with politics?

    I would ask a political question in order to get political opinions, myself. Makes more sense that way.

    He has a long long list of targets that he targeted with his abuse of power.
    He violated the election law.
    Misused over 100 million in funds.
    The Munnel Memo exposed him and his second in command on years of misconduct.

    I disagree, it is what we need more of. While its a sound bite, many interviewed prisoners say they plan to stay clean as not to go back to jail. Chain gang work are all vollunteers. Tents keep cost down for taxpayers.
    Guess you prefer a nice retreat for prisoners?

    "I don't remember" , or pushing it off on subordinates and saying he wasn't aware, does not get him off the hook, IMO. In fact, it just makes him look not in control of his own department and/or incompetent... which is actually worse than being corrupt.

    How does a not liking the way things are done warp the most absolute opposite extreme of "nice retreat"?
