He's a bully plain and simple. He craves attention even if negative. At the very least the sheriffs position should require basic police training.

To jane goodman: I believe Joe Arpaio has more than 40 years experience in Law Enforcement. How many do you have? If we had more Law Enforcement Administrators like him you could walk on the streets of your neighborhood at night and not be worried about being attacked. The country and Phx has been given away to the criminals and the courts coddle them. Can you allow your child to walk to the playground, park or the local store? The majority of government leaders are more worried about keeping their jobs instead of making the streets safe. Be thankful there are a few Sheriff Joe's around.

This is what it comes down to....Legal....Illegal. Most of us, including Sheriff Joe, don't care about people from other countries coming through our portals LEGALLY, with passports and work visas trying to make a living here in the U.S. Providing, of course, that they don't commit a crime.
It is the ILLEGAL, which of course means "not legal", the border runners, the wetbacks, who are here ILLEGALLY that most of us, including Sheriff Joe, have a problem with because they are breaking the law by not entering this country LEGALLY.
They have no rights because they are ILLEGALLY here and should be deported ASAP. I highly commend Sheriff Joe on the work he and his staff do to get the ILLEGALS out of our state. I wish that there were more Sheriffs like Joe Arpaio in California, New Mexico and Texas, then all the border states would have more of a handle on this growing problem. Which in turn just might reduce the crime rate throughout the Southwest.

Well I think Sheriff Joe is doing his Job. He is getting the criminals who break the law, which is what a sheriff is supposed to do. I think the people who are upset with Sheriff Joe over him upholding the law when it comes to illegal imigrants, are either mad because they are illegal imigrants who could be caught by Sheriff Joe, or they are people who have no sense of the law. Whether done for the right reasons, or wrong, being an illegal citizen is still illegal. So I think Sheriff joe is doing his job. In my book, when you break the law, you break the law...There are no if, ands, or buts when it comes to the Law; and even if there are, it's only in certain cercumstances. So Sheriff Joe, keep doing your job...Upholding the law is what your paid to do. Before anyone can say I'm racist for saying this, I'm Native American, and Mexican mixed so I believe Sheriff joe is not in the wrong.

KUDOS for Channel 5 for they have reported a sensational story that describes theSheriff for what he is AND his Chief Deputy. Isn't it interesting that since the story came out on TV, there has been no mention of the Sheriff in the paper since. He must be very distraught!

Don't ever forget that one of the reasons healthcare is out of control is that YOU and I are paying the tab for illegals from every country who come here just for the healthcare and "free money". We are also paying for auto accidents for uninsured illegals and we are paying untold amounts of money for gang and illegal activities. What are the reprocussions for these people? Deported to an area where they can be back here in 24 hours doing the same illegal things they were the day before. Thank you Sheriff Joe for doing what every other law enforcement agency should be doing.

He epitomizes everything that is wrong with Arizona.
He's full of rage and is a bigot, in my opinion.
I was stunned when he was re elected.
I USE to admire his no nonsense style, but I now think he is spinning out of control with the immigration issue.
There are more violent crimes being committed that need his attention.

Elected by the People and doing the work We the People have asked for. Liberals don't like him because he inforces the laws they don't like,illegal immigration being the most glaring. Arizona needs, and by the election results, wants Sherrif Joe. It's not like this is his first rodeo if it were not the will of the People he would not have been elected, sound familiar?

The reason Joe keeps getting elected is because voters want laws enforced. It is obvious that ICE and local forces do not want to be bothered w/illegals and this whole situation. I am not anti-Mexican. Many friends are Mexican. I am against people sneaking into this country specically so they can get services that tax payers paid for. Also, many that sneak in are or become criminals.

The man is doing exactly what we hired him to do. I applaud his actions and support him fully. If every county in this country had a sheriff like Joe, our economy wouldn't be in the shape it is. Our tax dollars would be spent helping Americans out instead of illegals. The people that don't like Joe are the ones that don't belong in this country. We elect a sheriff to enforce the law, why don't we just let him. You go Joe.

He is an elected official doing what he is suppose to do. The new Homeland Security/former AZ Governor/ is trying to prevent him from doing his job. She needs to remember that she was appointed and he was elected and reelected and the people have spoken with their votes. Bravo to Sheriff Joe you need to help other cities get more Urban Cowboy Sheriffs and secure our neighborhoods,cities,state,and country.Our prison costs and housing would drop if we all had tent cities to attend instead of the luxor prison systems. So many of our jails and prison facilities are better then how most people on the outside live and have to pay for. Keep it a place knowone wants to return to. YOU GO JOE

Sheriff Joe Arpaio reminds me of a very vindictive teenanger whom rebels when he doesn't get his way. I don't think he belongs in an official position. Maybe a deputy; but, not the sheriff. Illegals are here to better themselves just like when the first pilgrims sailed to practice freedom of religion. I am a native american and back then we were called savages, heathens, and treated with disrespect. Now, the mexicans crossing the border are called, "wetbacks" and illegal aliens. Over the weekend, there was the Neo-Nazi protest. Crazy, they are STILL calling the JEWS out all because in the United States there is freedom of religion. I think the Nazis need to move to a place that will allow that type of behavior. Here in the United States, we don't want any race to think they are superior over any other race. I think the state of Arizona because of Sheriff Joe is beginning to stir up citizens' feelings of racism. Instead of arresting mexicans and taking them back to Mexico and letting them go. The U.S. should have a no trespassing law for illegals. This way they are already in the judicial system and it will show up on their FBI file-background check. Then the Sheriff can have them transported back to the border of the country where they came from. Also, I think the country that the alien is a citizen of should pay the United States the costs of arrest, court costs, imprisonment, and food they ate while in the U.S. I think the United States should sue the country for the number of illegals that cross the border every month. This way, the other countries will begin making jobs, housing, and means of support for their OWN CITIZENS!!!!!! Us taxpayers are sick of paying for all of these so called raids. Why can't the United States stop interfering with other countries' wars. Us taxpayers are tired of paying for the war in Iraq also. Our seniors don't need to give up their little bit of social security and medicare they have to support a war they had no control over. May GOD bless America!!!!!!!!

I think Sherif Joe is doing a great job, and the Board of Supervisors need to stop trying to tell him how to do his job. As for the bus, put it in service where it is needed. the board needs to stop acting like little kid who don't get their way. Grow for God's sake.

The truth and the problem is that the MCSO has one of the worst crime solved rates in the USA and regularly closes out cases as unsolveable, hence even the Goldwater group staying after its GOP constituent Sheriff Joe. Immigrant harassment isn't solving the crime issues, but it's better press for Joe than the big failures. Not what we pay for.

I have to admire Sheriff Joe for breaking out pf the status quo and enforcing the law.
I am an immigrant myself, came here legally, learned the language,as the matter of fact to this day I don't see signs and such changed to my first language, guess that tells you I am not from Mexico.
I am offended by the preferential treatment illegal immigrants get here in this country, I had to sign papers that I would not be eligible for any type of government assistance for the first few years here in this country,I was on my own, but I did have legal papers to work, which I did.

Now I cannot understand people that support illegal immigration, the strain and burden that places on each town, state and the whole country is unmeasurable, and here are some people want to make a ruckus about an official that is enforcing the law.

Suggestion to those folk:
Try to go to Mexico illegal and make the same demands that are being made here,let us know what happens!!
I will support Sheriff Joe as long as he is able to be in office.

Sheriff Joe is doing a great job, just because he does not bow to some of the noise making groups, he is being called names and such. He is a elected official and as for me, I will keep voting for him,with a 61% approval rate I guess Joe is doing a good job.
I don't even have to try to insult people that feel differently.
If Mexican nationals want to better themselves, they would apply legally for entry into this country, like other immigrants. Why would you break the law in the name of making a better life, that does not make sense at all.
Come on people lets be realistic about legal and illegal.
We need more people like Sheriff Joe to stand up against the groups that support breaking the law for certain groups of people.

Joe is taking advantage of the justifiable anger in this country over illegals and the deliberate povertization of this country by the money changers (globalization, outsourcing, offshoring, etc). I don't like Joe's bioted methods, but I understand the anger of the citizens.

Joe is a cowardly BULLY and so are his officers. Some of us who have been harassed, abused, and threatened by these thugs understand exactly why they have had to pay out so many lawsuits. The man is pure EVIL and needs to be indicted.

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?

Joe's job is to uphold the law, that is what he does. If you think that it is profiling then blame the millions of illegals here filling our prisons, clogging the courts, and sucking up welfare, and stealing jobs from honest citizens and people who entered the country legally. We don't want the scummy, filthy, felon sleazes within our borders, and if you want to protect them you don't belong here either. We will not sit on the fence any longer.

First of all, a lot of you, who are probably adults, are extremely ignorant. I am only 17 years old and I feel far more educated about this then most of you who have commented. You cannot have thoughts like, "They are illegal so they are bad people who make this country filthy," and think that your argument is valid. 1. That is a stereotype. 2. That is just simply stupid. Don't assume you are the superior race, because you are not. You may have a better country according to the economy, but that does not mean that the citizens are intelligent. Look at a lot of your common people. Why has Gay Marriage been such a big issue? Because a lot of you guys are relgious and closed-minded. It is wrong to be selfish and try to control every thing around you. I think a lot of people, not just Americans, assume they are above everyone else and anything below should be gone.
Yes, some illegals commit crimes. Yes, some illegals are bad people. BUT, that does not mean that ALL illegals should be punished. Look at how many blacks are in prison. Look at how many whites are child molestors. And no one ever thinks about that. Just because someone came in this country illegaly, they are more noticeable and therefore the crimes they commit are taken more into consideration.

Think outside the box and realize that every single race has bad people. And really, that is all there is to it.

Dear Disappointed by your stupidity:
Wakeup! Yes you are 17 and don't have to finance the illegals. Look at the facts.
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.

Poor Sherrif Joe,

He does what he swore he would do when he took office, up hold the laws of this state and county. Yet when it comes to the modern day slaves(illegals) he is fighting not just the illegals, but the system that uses them and wants them here. Yes the system that runs our country(money) wants the modern day slaves here.

I have to this to say... If Arizona doesn't want him send him to OHIO!!!! We need someone like him... He sets a great example of what needs to be done. If you commit the crime you do the time... Everyone looks at him as him being a bully. Let someone kill your family member and be put in prison.. All the while you will be paying tax dollars for that person to live, eat, watch tv and so on and so forth. Is that fair... These criminals made their decisions. At least this man isn't rewarding them for their actions like other facilities do.

We believe Sherrif Joe Arpaio is doing a very good job for Maricopa County. I wish others in his position had the courage he has shown. It must be very difficult for him to hear all the BS that the media is directing toward him. He may a bit arrogant, but I'd rather have someone like him upholding our state laws. Go Sherrif Joe!!
