New Times: Arpaio Investigating Gov. Brewer
From the Phoenix New Times:
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's criminal investigation into potential misdeeds by county leaders includes Governor Jan Brewer, a source close to the investigation tells New Times.

The source, who did not want to want to be identified, did not want to elaborate on the subject of the inquiry, saying only that it related to Brewer's time on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. Brewer was elected to the Board in 1996 and served as its chair until 2002. She rose from Secretary of State to the state's highest office when former Governor Janet Napolitano abandoned her post in January to become President Barack Obama's Homeland Security Secretary.

Whats the difference with him and Adolph Hitler? Hitler wanted all the Jews to go away, Joe wants all of the Mexicans to go away. Maybe he should find a country that has no Mexicans and move there!!!

Joe Arpaio big coward, he hasn't have the pants to go after the real criminals, for example drug dealers, robbers, and big guy
that are making fun of him because he's after the poor illegals that dont have a weapon to confrot or face him. He knows that they're easy to catch. Get the big ones Coward Joe Arpaio and

Arpaio is great! Most Arizonans ( except Maricopa county) agree with him and the way he feels about illegal aliens. It is illegal to be in this country without proper documentation, hence the word "illegal" alien. So why does the media go after him for upholding those laws? If the Mexicans want to live here, then let them do it legally.

We need more people like Sheriff Joe in our country. It seems that our government has closed it's eyes to illegal immigration and the tax payor has to pay the bill. We pay for their education, their health care and basically everything else they need yet the tax payor gets little or no help. Way to go Sheriff Joe. Keep up the good work and don't let those Washington bastards stop you.

Joe is an old Man who is deathly afraid of losing power and relevance. He will do whatever it takes to maintain power. I hope he is indicted on a Federal felony warrant is convicted and spends the rest of his life in Federal prison. All his bigoted supporters care about is ridding Maricopa County of brown-skinned people and maintaining the "Whiteness" of Arizona.

To the first person who left a comment, perhaps you are unemployed because you cannot spell or type in English. I would also like to point out that if you are in fact unemployed, then you are probably NOT contributing any tax "dollors" to food stamps for those Mexicans that you ate so much.
Joe is slime bag. People who support him are, in my opinion, usually very misguided and/or ignorant just like he is. It's too bad we can't send all the Mexicans home because I would be very interested to see who these fools would blame all their problems on then.

First off, I live in Columbus, Ohio. So my opinion really doesn't count, especially seeing that I don't pay Maricopa County or a state tax in AZ. But I'm going to give you my opinion anyway in the form of an open letter to Sheriff Joe. It would say something like--
"Dear Sheiff Joe:

If the majority of Maricopa County, AZ voters reject you for re-election, please come to Columbus, OH and run for sheriff here. You would have the overwhelming support of the vast majority of the people of our county .(Franklin) While technically you would be considered a "carpetbagger" by most, we would love to have you. Rumor has it that our Sheriff, (Jim Karnes) is retiring. If that is true, I for one couldn't think of a better replacement than you." And then the letter would end with something like Columbus supporters of Justice or something like that.
By the way, Our Sheriff (Karnes) is a very good man, but if he chooses to retire, he, IMHO, has earned himself the right.

I think that the reason Joe is disliked is because he doesn't allow politics and negative thinking to dictate his position as our sheriff. Most politians are corrupt."You scratch my back and I will scratch yours." Joe won't scratch. I feel that if you want to live in the USA ,do it legally. That is what my grandfather did when he came to NY, as a young man from Lithuania. He did not wave his country's flag around ,nor did he critize the USA for not handing him health care and financial gain because he was a poor immigrant. He found work in the coal mines and supported a family of 12, became a citizen and paid taxes all of his life. Six generations have become Americans because of him.

So... Beating people while in custody, denying medical care when they are sick, poisoning and chaining people for hours in the 110 heat is commendable to you people? Making people who have not been convicted only charged, sleep on filthy concrete floors for days with no soap to wash and having nasty (food) thrown at them like animals and having to drink from the top of the toilet is what you call a good sheriff?

Have any of you people ever seen what Joe and his sadistic deputies do to the Mexicans and Blacks that are locked in that hell hole you call a jail? The beatings and torture that I witnessed with my own eyes makes me sick and not want to even live in the United States anymore.

After a career that would make most people proud and being honored at a number of events back in my hometown, I come to Arizona and am treated like an animal because I am not white. You like this sheriff? Human rights, civil rights mean nothing to you people?

Take off the mask of illegal immigration and deal with the fact that your sheriff is a racist, sadistic criminal and has made a lot of people to be filled with anger. Sheriff Joe and the people who support this sick mean sadistic man are what makes so much of the rest of the world hate the hypocrisy of America.

I agree with the comments above. No one should be tortured. As far as these events occur, was it witnessed and nothing done about it? Did the Sheriff himself do the beating or his employees. Maybe he isn't aware of all the torture that happens in his jails. People need to speak up. Why were you there???
Do you know what goes on in other countries? I hear Mexico isn't much better, and some countries torture ,cut off your fingers for stealing, kill babies and their own children for an offense.
I am not condoning what is done to people, but it sure is a deterrent to keep me from committing a crime in this state, especially after reading your story.
It is to bad that others can't learn from those who were jailed in Joe's "filthy" confines.
Why did you leave your hometown and move to AZ? Maybe you need to go back where you were proud and honored. Apparently you committed some kind of offense here, if you were incarcerated in this state and witnessed the torture.

"Sheriff Joe" is a pitiful figure. Bombastic, publicity seeking, callous, angry, pompous, and full of "almost truths" he represents everything that is wrong with our local and national society.His position that "he is the law" has swollen his head and will eventually be his downfall. Joe is a walking, talking cartoon who is men-spirited and above all, vindictive. we live in fear of his "brown shirts" because they take their lead from him. I am old enough to remember another megalomaniac who espoused his virtues and ideals and also used his "brown shirts" to "enforce the law". Lets hope that common sense will eventually win out and common decency be restored.

Last time I checked 'Sheriff Joe's" title is "sheriff".Which means he has to catch people who are doing things "illegally".So if you are an "illegal" immigrant you are breaking the law .If we were to break the law we would be arrested as well.
Did the people who commented above regarding arresting people who are dealing drugs, raping ect. even think about alot of these crimes that are being commited by illegals, not to mention all of the terrorists that are coming across the borders at the same time.
My parents came here as immigrants but pursued the American dream the lawful way.They learned to speak the language, found jobs, took the immigration courses and became American citizens all with in 5 years.
I dont have a problem with people making a good life for them selves but do it the right way.
My husband just recently spent 6 months with out work(he is in construction).When he would see the jobs that were being done , they were all being done by people who dont even speak our language...thats wrong!!!They are taking the jobs away from the people who have rightfully earned the work .
I applaud the Sheriff, he is taking on a system and a community that frown on equality.....thats right equality...if you are skilled and have earned a position and are here leagally, you have a right to fight for a job.
To under bid a job just to get it and take it away from someone who has the skill to do it properly is wrong, and for companies to fall "PREY" to this just to save a buck.... isnt right!!!!!!
What happened to American pride, things dont even get made in our counrty any more and now we are just bowing down and giving them our jobs and changing our school systems to suit them.
All I can say is I back the sheriff 100% and I want to thank him for doing what others are so afraid to do.
Its not right to walk into a store here in AZ and the music overhead is in Spanish.The last time I checked we were in the US of A, time for them to come here ,learn to speak our language and follow our laws.Time to fly the American flag not the Mexico flag, if you want to do that go back home!
Those of you that are reading this and saying that I am prejudice, you are 100% wrong.I have many friends and family that are not American but they have all done their immigration the proper way.
Just keep in mind,, the reason our insurance rates(medical and auto) are so high here is due to the people who come here and take from us,the people that have worked so hard to get what we have.
Just remember the people that he has in his tent cities all commited the crimes that they are serving time for.If you dont want to do the time dont do the crime.We pay for the prisoners that are able to eat 3 squares, work out,watch t.v etc.that includes rapists ,child molesters, murderers etc.Im sorry if he makes them wear pink and live in tents..too bad so sad!!!!
Again ...thank you sheriff and keep up the good work!!!

Some say that Sheriff Joe needs to focus more on other areas such as drug dealers, murders, ect. or how about the illegal immigrant in Phoenix, while on drugs had anal entercourse with his six month old baby boy until he died.

83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.

53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens

71% plus of all apprehended cars stolen in 2005 in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California were stolen by Illegal aliens or “transport coyotes".

40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally

75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

29% (630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our state and federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually

Is the liberal media reporting on this? NO They only report on the thing witch will twist your mind to suport thier agenda! Why do they only report on Joe Arpio's illegal round ups do you really think thats all Joe does, the meadia doesn't report on Joe's bust on other illegal activity like drug bust, sexual crimes, speading, murders, ecy. the meadia always tries to make Joe look bad!!

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.
WELL YOU STARTED ALL THIS WITH AN ANONYMOUS PERSON SPOUTING HATE AND ANTI-SEMITIC RHETORIC.
YOU ARE THE HIPPOOCRITS AND YOU ARE HELPING TO HIDE CRIMINALS IN MY COUNTRY.
I THINK JOE SHOULD LOOK IN TO YOU KPHO 5'S MOTIVES.
WHY WOULD A LOCAL TELEVISION STATION WANT FOREIGN CRIMINALS IN THE COUNTRY?
MAYBE BECAUSE YOU VALUE MONEY MORE THAN COUNTRY! As ratings equal money?
TALK ABOUT A DANGER, TO THE COUNTRY! PRINT THAT!

I think Joe is doing a great Job as Sheriff & if he'd run for Govenor I'd vote for him in a flash. He'd straighten this state out and ALL illegal aliens would either come to this county as our great great grandparents did, or get there butts kicked back to where they came from. We need an Ellis Island back, as well as waystations on every road into America & every airport.If they run for it and shoot at our guards, they would be able to shootback.

I have to say that I am seriously disappointed that I myself voted for Sherriff Joe. WHY? The word "Mexican" as it is used in this blog, in nearly every statement, appears to be consistent with Sherriff Joes lack of intelligence in persuit of Mexicans and clearly is direct racial profiling by Joe and the rest of these bloggers who don't have a clue that Mexicans aren't the problem. Why has he not targeted say, middle easterners, canadians, europeans? If his beef is with the 'illegal immigration law' fine, go after the Canadians, Middle Easterners, Europeans, et...who are not in this country legally! And furthermore, crime in America or the World is a direct result of the lack of abundance that our politicians and leaders create through their need for power and control, and of course greed. It's not about Mexican, Canandian, Middle Eastern, et...Illegal immigration is so yesterday. Find a one world attitude, create abundance and thus one world peace. And, furthermore I'm sorry I voted for Sherriff Joe because his "example" of humiliation, intimidation, and retaliation that he uses as a tactic to make a difference as an elected official and leader are the lesser road to a higher, better state, nation and world. He represents the lower functioning of human intelligence that is ever so present in politics of America and he's spreading it like a disease through our communities, our world and our nation. His lack of adherence to civil and constitutional rights is a disgrace to the USA and what we all stand for, Freedom, Opportunity, Abundance,et... He is a perfect example of the shameful ways that have infected our world today: power, control and greed hungry politicians who have nothing positive to contribute. Personally, I like Jan Brewer and I like Terri Goddard. Just give either of their offices a call. You'll get a human with some form of higher intellect such as: respect, consideration, concern, dignity, et...Then go to either Joe's or Andrew Thomas you'll get disrespect, rudeness, lies, disruptions, ignorance, humiliation, et...JOE and THOMAS are a disgrace to my higher intelligence. As a native of Arizona, former Republican, and former Joe and Thomas supporter I am disgusted. You're both a shame and I believe both of you should be deported too, for your low functioning intelligence but then again, you'll get your day at the hands of the always ever present KARMA! Both of you stink, neither of you have anything to offer this state, this nation or this world. You're not the answer, you're the problem and you're making things worse in your method of operanda. I beg both of you to move on and get out of our state!

I'm tired of the constant negative reporting on Sheriff Joe's so-called harrassment of the hispanic population while searching for illegal aliens. KPHO is trying to convice us that Sheriff Joe is against all hispanics when that is not the case at all. Citizens and legal residents of hispanic descent should applaud Joe's efforts. After all, illegal aliens of hispanic descent account for more than 75 percent of the violent crimes in the valley.
