    Records Show Discrimination Monitor Gets Millions to Create “Harsh” Climate for Cops, Many Leave

    https://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2...ps-many-leave/

    The arrangement, ordered by a judge after a civil rights group filed a lawsuit, has created a “harsh environment with harsh standards,” according to agency sources interviewed by Judicial Watch. Monitors often “set up calls” dispatched as real radio calls for service for deputies to respond to see how they engage with minority contacts, sources say. Since Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, who advocates protecting illegal immigrants from deportation, took over in 2016 the agency has had a 10% attrition rate, the records obtained by Judicial Watch show. Ironically, one of the Warshaw monitors assigned to keep MCSO in check is a former Miami, Florida police chief embroiled in a federal corruption investigation. The former chief, Raul Martinez, was among several targets investigated by the feds for helping destroy evidence against drug smugglers, sharing bribes and skimming cash and drugs from seizures, according to a local newspaper report. Martinez invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination before a grand jury.
    I'm sure that some will see the 10% attrition rate as a good thing and the idea that MSCO employees being treated "harshly" is simple justice. It isn't. It's all about politics and the hatred of Joe Arpaio. It's about people who are proud of Maricopa County being at the top tier of the US drug and human smuggling trade.

    Joe Arpaio was a crooked sleazebag who probably hired a lot of crooked sleazebacks to the MCSO. How much of that attrition is due to dirty cops being unable to pull their crooked **** anymore?

    "People who are proud of Maricopa County being at the top tier of the US drug and human smuggling trade." What a crock. How about people who believe in due process and treating prisoners humanely?

    Gee, things were so much better when Arpaio was there, like when he forced an illegal immigrant to give birth while she was shackled to the table...how can you get any more American than that?

    That's not a reason to invalid the man's tenure, sorry. That's basically an appeal to outrage. Too bad you're outraged about that rather than the crime illegal aliens commit endlessly and the cost to taxpayers their presence is. Perhaps a shift in your priorities in the right direction may be in order?

    From The Hill:

    According to the Pew Research Hispanic Trends Project, there were 8.4 million unauthorized immigrants employed in the U.S.; representing 5.2 percent of the U.S. labor force (an increase from 3.8 percent in 2000). Their importance was highlighted in a report by Texas Comptroller Susan Combs that stated, “Without the undocumented population, Texas’ work force would decrease by 6.3 percent” and Texas’ gross state product would decrease by 2.1 percent. Furthermore, certain segments of the U.S. economy, like agriculture, are entirely dependent upon illegal immigrants.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture states that, “about half of the hired workers employed in U.S. crop agriculture were unauthorized, with the overwhelming majority of these workers coming from Mexico.” The USDA has also warned that, “any potential immigration reform could have significant impacts on the U.S. fruit and vegetable industry.” From the perspective of National Milk Producers Federation in 2009, retail milk prices would increase by 61 percent if its immigrant labor force were to be eliminated.

    Echoing the Department of Labor, the USDA, and the National Milk Producers Federation, agricultural labor economist James S. Holt made the following statement to Congress in 2007: “The reality, however, is that if we deported a substantial number of undocumented farm workers, there would be a tremendous labor shortage.”


    And when it comes to illegal aliens committing crimes, they actually do so at a LOWER rate than native-born Americans. From Politifact:

    The American Immigration Council also reported that 2010 Census data shows incarceration rates of young, less educated Mexican, Salvadoran and Guatemalan men — which comprise the bulk of the unauthorized population — are "significantly lower" than incarceration rates of native-born young men without a high-school diploma.

    Specifically for Mexican men ages 18 to 39, the incarceration rate in 2010 was 2.8 percent, compared to 10.7 percent for native-born men in the same age group, the council’s report said.

    Immigrants come to the United States to build better lives for themselves and their children, said Walter A. Ewing, a senior researcher at the American Immigration Council and one of the report’s authors.

    "They are very motivated to not blow that opportunity by getting in trouble with the police," he told PolitiFact. "This is especially so for unauthorized immigrants, who can be deported at any time for unlawful presence."


    One should note that Politifact references the very-conservative think tank Cato Institute in their determination of this matter.

    When police agencies are violating federal law they ARE going to be investigated. So what's your problem? Are you saying that those cops are cry babies 'er what?
