    I like him. He is a good guy. I wish men like him ran prisons all over the country. thanks to pro-scumbag groups trying to demonize the man they unintentionally made him popular and shown that it is legal to have inmates work in chain gangs, feed them bologna sandwiches, live in tents, only have two channels of cable tv to watch and no cental heat or air. And he cracks down on illegal immigration. You should have made this a public poll, I suspect scumbag sympathizers and even some pro-Sheriff Joe Arpaio will try to doctor the poll.

    "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"

    Arpaio is a complete disaster. Contrary to what the news media says, the real action is not in his jail or immigration policy, but in local corruption. Joe's office has engaged in blatantly abusive behavior going back more than a decade. You get misspent taxpayer payer dollars, trumped up charges on political enemies, illegal campaign funding and ethical violations all over the place. Arpaio's subordinates and associates have already been dismissed and are now before the court. Arpaio is now at the stage where he switches between claiming he doesn't remember or saying it was all his underlings fault. I do believe in the concept of innocent until proven guilty. However, the evidence against the Sheriff's office is clear. Joe was either complicit or is so hideously incompetent he didn't notice rampant corruption among his direct subordinates.

    Re: Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Good guy, or bad guy?

    Uhhh i think hes a nut wacko, terrible guy...

    A US district court judge ruled in 08 and 10 that the Maricopa County jails violated the constitutional rights of the inmates.
    He refused to cooperate with the Department of Justice when he was accused of discrimination and unconstitutional search and seizures.
    Judge John Leonardo of Pima County Superior Court found that Arpaio "misused the power of his office to target members of the (Board of Supervisors) for criminal investigation."
    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've lived in AZ since '55. Winters only lately. So Joe A. has made himself noteworthy for some time. He is bacially a jerk in my opinion. He applies the law in a way that is not suportaable in a rational court, but is popular with some. He has also done some marginaly legal and even illegal things.

    I think he's basically a good guy who believes in what he's doing. He's also a bit of an Attention Whore, who enjoys preening for the camera. So...

    Dammit. Wrong sheriff. I put good guy. I thought the poll was for the other sheriff that said people should get permits to carry guns. Oops.

    Funny how some have convicted the Joe A. What happended to inocent till proven guilty? Guess it only applies to people you agree with?
    Yes, imo, Joe A. likes attention. Yet he makes it clear where he stands on issues. Goes after identity theft crimes, drugs, etc.
    I have lived in AZ since 89. Maricopa county supervisors are not as clean and innocent as the news would have you believe. I support Joe A. more than I do the county supervisors.

    I don't think the kind of prison reforms he advocates are the kind of prison reforms we need.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
