"I think he's a liability to our county"
Stacy writes:
The problem with Arpaio is that he wants to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce. By the looks of his press releases this man is absolutely obsessed with only going after immigration and animal abusers.

I think he's a liability to our county and because he's received so much national attention for his TV tantrums, he's just a plain embarrassment to us all. Tisk tisk tisk.

It saddens me to see how many people in our community have supported this horrible man. He is an embarrassment to our state with his absurd chest thumping and bellowing in front of the national media. He has cost the county a fortune trying to settle lawsuits against him, and he is now being federally investigated for his bully tactics with immigration enforcement. I'm embarrassed to be a native of this state and a former police professional.

He gives true law enforcement officers a black eye. What a shame that long after Arpaio will be gone, police officers will have to work hard to build that respectable image again - like that 3rd grader who once thought that a police officer was a true American Hero.

Arpaio ruined it for many good cops.

First we are all immigrants from someplace or another. But Sheriff Joe seems to be doing a good job.
Secondly, if you are in this country illegally what rights do you have? The phrase illegal-immigration rights does not or should not apply.
Illegal immigration is what started this country downturn as we know it today. They are illegal therefore they have taken jobs away from our citizens.
Leave Sheriff Joe alone - he's just doing his job. Another thing our country has lost track of " Doing our jobs".

Joe Arpaio has flouted the constitution and admitted to Rick Sanchez on CNN that he racially profiles, all in violation of the law. He has continued to use minor infractions to pull over persons of color in pursuit of his jackbooted thuggery. All the while there are thousands of outstanding warrants in Maricopa county waiting to arrest the real criminals, instead of people whose only crimes are their undocumented status and the minor infractions for which they were detained... Arpaio has to be sanctioned by the feds for his failure to comply with the law.

For all though who love this man for his immigration job, who cares. Lets not forget, he has other part of his job he doesn't do and that is why the county area his storm troopers are suppose to take care of: crime has risen dramanticly and his lack of serving has destroyed this county and this state.

We may all be immigrants at one point in our family history but our families were not illegal. Sheriff Joe is doing his job. Crime rates are down as illegals have left or chosing not to come here. If a majority wants to open the borders to all, then change the law. People want drugs, prostitution, sex with minors, many things. Just change the law and Sheriff Joe will stop. Illegal aliens are not immigrates. They do not want to become citizens of the USA, become American, learn english, etc. They want a better life, but not the responsibilites. Sheriff Joe is great, he is the best law enforcement in the county.

I just saw the investigative report about the FBI investigation.. wow! Great work!

I strongly believe that this is the other piece that needed to be investigated to complete the circle of abuse that Arpaio is committing.

Lets hope for that indictment and finally restoring justice and humanity to law enforcement.

I want little kids to see cops as American Heroes again.

I applaud KPHO for exposing the sherriff of Maricopa county. I moved here from Florida and I saw alot of "redneck" behavior from law enforcement. It seems that the good ole boys network extends to Phoenix too. I am embarassed to tell people I live here. The theme here is if you don't go with Joe you'll wind up in the hole. Thanks for bringing it to light.

Congratulations to KPHO and Mr. Loew for a great piece of journalism. Excellent coverage of the abuses of authority by the petty sheriff. The mere trumpeting of enforcement of the immigration law doesn't allow behavior that is clearly unconstitutional. I hope the Feds finally deal with both matters...illegal immigration and the abuse of power, the retaliation against all those who speak out against the sheriff.

Stacy, where are you getting your information about Bill Stoller? This is getting interesting. A house in a cul-de-sac in Peoria? Ok, let's hear more. Can you drive up there some time? Get out of your car, walk around, talk to people? Do you have a street address, a number, house color/type?

Get back to us. (( - :

Sheriff Joe Is The Emporer without Clothes we all read about when we were young.

One day his house of Cards will fall and He will be exposed for the being the Bully he is. I worded my comments as cleanly as I could.

He WILL eventually be exposed as the egomaniac he is.

I believe in securing the borders, I believe that if you crossed the border it's a crime, I also believe that what Arpaio is doing is persecution, he think he is the Hitler of the latinos, those who are on favor of Arpaio, remember what happened with the Jews just because they were Jews, no difference in what Arpaio is doing with this racial profile, one thing is enforcing the law the other is persecuting, intimidating etc the Latinos even if you are legal in this Country and you are Latino and look very Latino oopps watch out!! they might get you, we don't have to live in fear if we are USA citizens of this country.
The people that voted for Joe are just as racist as he is; didn't you see the report today on CBS 5 news, it was awesome!!! finally they told it like it is, I have been waiting for this moment, I hope he gets what he deserves for abusing his authority, I hope you heard the comment from the investigator, this can not be happening in our Country, the law it's the law but open your eyes to reality, by this I don't mean I want the illegals here, but they are human beings not clowns to parade on pink underwear, what is he thinking?he is becoming more and more hateful it is time that someone puts a stop to this matter and really enforced the law not persecute and intimidate based on racial profile.

As a law major, I looking at it in all propective. Yes! we have a illegal alien in this country; however, they have provide our country with economical stability. Has anyone put two and two together, since we have gone after illegal aliens many states economic problems have increased. California is bankrupt, foreclosure problems. Many says that illegal immigrants don't pay taxes. That not true. Individuals who owned a home in this country paid taxes. Many illegal individual who have worked, their employers are suppose to take out taxes and send it to the federal government and state.

Now Sheriff Joe has abused his power. He has cost this county millions of dollars. How much more do this county have to pay until the people decide he is a liability.

I have been pulled over three times by the sheriff because the color of my skins and I did not violate not one single law. Now if I wanted, I would file a lawsuit against him for harassment.

One of the reason Sheriff Joe is going after Hispanic individuals is because the Mexican Mafia put a $200,000 for his head. After this he began targeting Hispanic(s). Not because it is a law, but revenage. This is evilness and Heavenly Father does not like evil.

We have a problem with illegal immigratant, but lets go by the law and not make your own law and policy. You are violating indivduals' rights. Yes! Illegal immigratants have rights, and I have seen how these individuals have been beaten because they are immigratant and do not know that they have right not to be beaten by law enforcement. Because law enforcement won't let them speak.

It’s time for him to go, because of so many abuses of power, and wrong doing things he done in the past. America don’t need sheriffs like that, we need somebody to be fair and balance. He deserves to end in his own jail to see the truth, and play with his expensive toys he bought with our tax money…!?

After watching you so called report on Joe Arpaio, my only real question for the 5 News Team is this. Why focus on the work of an elected law officer who is upholding the laws of the state of Arizona when you could actually do good in the world by actually doing reports that set their sites on real criminals. From the discovery of “Rape Trees” near the Mexican border to kidnaping of US citizens.. There seems to be no limit to your stations silence to these crimes.

Yet 5 News can find the time and energy to run a clearly politically driven propaganda piece created to do harm to the reputation Joe Arpaio, So because of all this I will no longer be watch Chanel 5. Likewise I will be boycotting all of the all the advertisers that currently sponsor 5 news, and writing them to inform them of such.

With every re-election, Arpaio's egomaniacal I-make-the-rules attitude grows more and more out of control. He is an embarrasment to Maricopa County and the state of Arizona. Kudos to you for exposing the spiteful and illegal way he chooses to deal with any opposition. It is a perfect example of Arpaio's consistent abuse of power. I hope when they take him down, he gets to wear his own pink underwear and feast on green bologna. Let him rot for a good long time in one of his own jails. It would be poetic justice.

Once again blame the media for his flaws. He is the one who continues to put his face in the news every damn day. Yet he gets upset when he is shown how he is violating peoples Civil Rights. I am not surprise at the response and once again he does not want to answer it in the news but by one of his flunkys. He needs to be indicated and jailed we new a NEW SHERIFF who is above all this fray and will do the job without all the publicity and stunts. More over with respect for the people of this county and the laws of this State and Country.

We support strict enforcement of our federal immigration laws for obvious reasons, considering the violence and mayhem in Phoenix.

Regarding any conspiracies, look at Sheriff Arpaio's accusers like Gordon, who have continually pursued an agenda to subvert and undermine our federal immigration and other laws. That's a clear CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY per the statutes cited by Mr. Iglesias.

Certainly the enactment of Phoenix Police Order 1.4.3, which illegally restricts and constructively prohibits Phoenix police officers from reporting immigration crimes, resulted from a conspiratorial "meeting of the minds." Was Gordon involved? Is water wet?

The open borders crew always defeats its own cause by accusing Sheriff Arpaio of crimes that Gordon, et. al. commit all the time.

Notice to blogger "Stacy (Paratore)," our Bill Stoller never lived in any house in a cul-de-sac in Peoria, but we have notified authorities that you may pose a threat to the current residents of that house. Nice try, Stacy, in conjunction with anarchists STEPHEN LEMONS, DENNIS GILMAN, and the rest of your band of losers. (( - :

I believe that Sheriff Joe has control of the voting system in Arizona. When votes come in the Maricopa Sheriff's department have power over and oversees when ballots comes in after the voting pull are close. The state should investigate that. YOU SHOULD CHECK

This man is a menace to all of the people of this county. He has no regard for the law whatsoever. He decides what law or laws he wants to "enforce". He totally ignores the functions of his office that he is supposed to be doing, i.e. serving warrants to over 40,000 felons. His department does not even have a 'warrant detail', which is one of the major functions of the sheriffs office!

He is obsessed with getting face time on TV. If the news media would ignore this egomaniac, then, just maybe, he might stop violating the law.

He should, not only, be investigated, but he should be prosecuted and put into his own jail. Let him wear pink underwear and eat green lunch meat! and see just how long he will last under those conditions.

His vindictiveness is legendary. He goes after anyone that he thinks is opposed to his policies. This man is a psychopath and should be removed from office immediately.

Go Joe!
Joe can research all he wants!
That's a good thing.
If you are not a criminal you don't have any thing to worry about.
Any one taking my tax money better be squeaky clean and be ready to prove it.
We passed laws against illegal entry into the country not because we don't like people of a different color, after all we are all from somewhere else unless you are of American Indian descent,
but because we don't want other countries criminals here.
Especially bordering countries criminals doing crimes and running home when the heat is on. Then they come back, for more, when the heat is off!
Joe is doing what we pay him for.
In fact he is doing the biggest service a sheriff any where can do for his country! If you can't see that you are the ones with the problem! If every law inforcment agency would go by this simple rule our crime rate would drop by over 80% , a proven fact!
If you want, research him! I guarantee he is squeaky clean!
I for one do not want terrorists or any criminal hiding and committing crimes in my country. It's a tough job . It takes guts to do it! Is he realy the only one in our entire country? AMAZING!
I also think that the anonymous source that started this should be outed!
In your page asking for blogs KPHO 5, it says if you want your blog published put your name on it.
ps your page wont let me put my e address whats up with that?

Wakeup people!
According to the Maricopa County Criminal Justice records, illegal aliens commit violent crimes at almost 3 times that of native born Americans.
- We spend about $1 billion annually in K-12 on illegal aliens.
- Arizona #2 in the World in kidnappings.
- Illegal alien abuse of our medical facilities has forced many to close.
- Illegal aliens use our deserts to dump their non-degradable garbage.
- Through increases in taxation, our representatives are stealing our property in order to redistribute our wealth to illegal aliens.
- In the U.S., 26 citizens a day are killed by the actions of illegal aliens (12 by stabbings and shootings and 13 by DUI and related crimes)
- Services we are required to provide to illegals are bankrupting our states and lowering our quality of life and quality of education.
- Tucson public schools use race based ethnic study courses to denigrate the U.S., inculcating loyalty to Mexico.
- Abetting illegals enables the culture of corruption they bring to grow: Kidnapping, ID theft, drug wars, murder, vehicular manslaughter, gangs, graffiti, drop houses, hostage taking, blackmail, rape and death during transport of illegals, home invasions.
- voting for sanctuary cities allows potential terrorists, who are illegals, to walk our streets with impunity (4 of the 5 leaders and pilots of the 9-11 terrorist were stopped by law enforcement and released and were in violation of our immigration laws. Had they been arrested 9-11 would have been averted.
