Arpaio Wants $7M For Legal Fees
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his office are requesting $7 million from the Board of Supervisors to pay for legal fees:
The money would pay for anticipated legal fees from Valley law firms Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart; Sanders and Park, and Wilenchik and Bartness.

County officials said $7 million is the equivalent of 100 salaries for full-time employees or a 1.4 cent drop in the property tax rate.

Gee whiz! We gripe about crime and want someone to do something about it then when we do get someone to do something, all people do is complain about it. If you are not breaking the law then why are you so mad at Sheriff Joe? The term illegal alien refers to breaking the law!! Get it? ILLEGAL!!

Joe Arpaio is doing his job, if it weren't for Joe, doing his sweeps and staying on top of things, Mesa would be full of them. If it weren't for the illegals, we wouldn't even need a news program. Check it out yourself, almost every incident you cover involves Illegals. It takes a certain kind of person to let all the hipocrasy from those of us who play goody-two-shoes, slide off his back and continue to stand up for his job helping this community. You would be the first to yell "Help, Joe", when it personally hits you.

If anything......cut his budget...Rico pays for all his crazy lawsuits anyway. This has got to stop. Since when, law enforcement does their elected job but gets all confiscations. If that the case, I should get my company's profits. No wonder the County doens't have any money.

Somehow people just don't get it! The ones who want to go after Sheriff Joe should stop and think about this, When he leaves office Phoenix's crime rate will greatly increase, and then people will wonder WHY??? TIME WILL TELL !!

Whats the difference we would pay and are paying for this type of fund anyway. The difference is, is the now the politicians are turning on each other and are rating Joe out, but what are they spending needlessly...hmmmmm I wonder. Joe I think you are doing fine, I just wish you would hit more construction sites cause I know very well there are plenty Illegals there. That's why I get get a job, cause certain drywall contractors only hire illegal aliens for half what a true journeyman wage pays. I wish I coud join Sheriff Joe's team.

Some guy above said Phoenix crime rate would go up? The crime rate has been coming down, and it has nothing to do with Arpaio. The Phoenix PD has been doing crime sweeps of their own. The difference is that they don't go out and hold a press conference to alert the bad guys about what they are doing. They do their sweeps the SMART way.

From Donald Baird, Scottsdale

Maricopa county has become the laughing stock of America. We have cartoon characters for both county attorney and sheriff (unfunny cartoons). We allow these idiots to run the nut house and there seem to be plenty of supportive nuts to go around. We have become more idiotic than many of the stupid things that have existed in the south in the past.

I am one of those near-natives who has spent over 60 years of my life in the Phoenix area. I hate to see what has happened here.

Even when Mecham was in office, and I thought he was extreme, we did not achieve the level of stupidity. The sad part is the support these 2 craziies are getting from otherwise same people.

I look to the day that both Thomas and Arpaio are hauled to jail in leg irons and cuffs. They deserve it. We don't tar and feather any more, nor do we ride people out of town on a rail these days, but we should. We should make an exception for these two arrogant fools.

The sheriff is inforcing the Constitution, and therefore you knuckle heads who want to destroy our law are in violation of our laws. Guess where that puts you! We need to back up the sheriff and help him to get rid of the illegels, and that would drop our budget that the previous governor screwed up. Now you want to muddy the waters, of possible running for governor.SHERIFF, GO GET THOSE CROOKED CREEPS. WE NEED YOU! CLEAN THOSE ILLEGELS OUT, THAT THOSE IDIOTS, WHO LET THEM STAY.Arizona sanctuary stinks.

Sheriff Joe is doing the job he was elected to do, albeit noisily. He does enforce the laws, just not the politically correct ones. Joe's adversaries have learned that by joining forces, they can exploit his vulnerabilities. And his allies have proven impotent and petty. Unfortunatly, all our elected and appointed officials seem more like noisy children who cannot play well together.

ill say that joe does arrest enough people thats for sure. and thats also why he has a high conviction rating. but just WHO exactly are the majority of his convictions? Dui's with bac's under .08 (like me), people busted and jailed for minor pot amounts, but not rapists not murderers, and not theifs. he's mostly concerned about the problem coming from the south. and all be it a nuisance, the mexicans do come here the same way we did long ago. the only difference is we set up laws after we arrived. back to joe, you ever realize that so many of his votes happen to come from people who dont live here all year? snow birds who leave when it gets too hot for their comfort but their vote still counts for who they want as "their" sherriff. my sherrif is dan saban and i vote for him every year, good luck to him and i cant wait to say so long to joe and his "power-abusive, money-grubbing" team of garbage do-gooders!!!

The following letter was sent to Dennis K. Burke today with the hopes that he will agree to establish a specialized outreach effort to collect information on the abuses by and corruption of Joe Arpaio. Of course, I signed my letter and included my contact information. It is my sincere hope that you, the readers, will follow suit and contact Dennis Burke's Office with your own information. Please be sure to use your name, address and contact information. It goes without saying that most government agencies are unlikely to act on anonymous information. To access Dennis Burke's contact information simply go to: http://www.justice.gov/usao/az/contacts.html

Honorable Dennis K.Burke
US Attorney for Arizona

Dear Mr. Burke,

Recent reports indicate that your office is aware of serious allegations of abuse and corruption within the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

I respectfully request that, due to the nature of and the number of allegations of abuse and corruption within the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, your office establish a specialized outreach effort to allow those citizens with information to provide your investigators with enough detail to substantiate the allegations of corruption and abuse.

Specifically, my information is intended to provide you with instances of contract fraud, misuse of RICO funds, misuse of JEF funds, selective and targeted harassment, abuse of power, obstruction of justice, threatening and intimidating, Purjury, forgery and false swearing and providing false information on a public Financial Disclosure Form.

It is my understanding that there are also a number of MCSO employees willing to come forward to provide similar information.

Because of the complexity of the issues and volatile nature of the corruption within MCSO, it is unlikely that my information (or that of many others) could be adequately communicated through a tip line. Accordingly, I ask that you consider assigning a special outreach unit to address the overwhelming amount of information it is likely your office would be receiving.

For your kind consideration, and for your assistance I respectfully thank you in advance.

Arizona is lucky to have a Sheriff that is willing to go to the mat with criminals that infest out cities towns and streets. I can only hope that the miss lead people that complain so much get a chance to experience an ID thief car stolen house robbed lost spousal and child support payments are maybe a kid napping. His is not an easy job and it is very complicated. It would be real easy if the criminal wore signs and the illegals were easier to identify. We live in the main corridor for every kind of criminals coming into our country. We are always telling the world that this is a land of laws. Law enforcement is getting more dangerous everyday and we should have their back like we expect them to have ours.

OMG! It's not about the illegals! It's about a man named Beavis (Sheriff Joe) and his evil twin Butthead (Andrew Thomas) who are so out of control, egotistical and act outside of the very law they proports to support. ANYONE who dares take a stand against Beavis or Butthead knows that they will be investigated until anything is found that can be twisted to DESTROY them. A judge? They actually went after a sitting judge for rulings on the bench? Who's next? The problem with both Beavis and Butthead is that their egos are so big that they have completely lost touch with normality.

Joe Arpaio has commited treason against the United States Republic and should be put on trial for his crimes against humanity. Immigration laws has trasgressed American principals and has taken a form of English principals. Joe has decided that Mexicans do not have the right to life liberty and the persuit of happiness, while claiming these rights for himself. As such, this is my action. In the name of Jesus Christ, I ask God to take the soul of Joe Arpaio and place it in the flesh of a poor Mexican in an impoverished, oppressed portion of Mexico. I ask that this is done after his death in his current flesh. I ask that God ignore any and all other pleas reguarding Joe Arpaio. Since I ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, it will be granted. It would have been better for Joe Arpaio had he never been born.

I am a mix of Hispanic and German heritage. My grandfather recieved the congressional medal of honor for killing 12 Vietnamese and saving 8 soldiers lives. That same grandfather has given me my Hispanic heritage. I have brown eyes and am a righteous man. Joe Arpaio went into the public eyes and claimed that Mexicans are dirty, diseased creatures. I believe his bigotry, pride, and conceit has caused many law enforcement officials to violently harrass people of my heritage. I have been beat down, tazed and unjustly incarcerated several times since Arpaio came into power. I was even hospitalized once. I graduated high school with honors and have recieved a gold metal in a debate tournament in Arizona. I competed at a national debate. I am a member of the National Forensic League and am a righteous member of the American community. I was born as an American and am outraged at the abuse I recieved by Arizona's law enforcement officials. I have suffered defamation of character. I ask that other people place themselves in my shoes and think about what they would do in my shoes. Many would take to violence against those who have violently trespassed unto my American rights. Instead, I have decided to diplomatically petition the government to modify the courts and their preceedings so that there truely is liberty and justice for all. I believe the Angel of Justice is correct. I hope his prayer is heard. If Joe Arpaio is forced to live out a lifetime as an impoverished, oppressed Mexican, part of me will be satisfied.

The injustice that is being served , on a regular basis , by Sheriff Arpaio and the Maricopa County District should be catching the attention of the State Attorney General's office - but it is not.

I have personally witnessed county court appearances , by court appointed attorneys , making a legal plea to obtain basic medical care - for inmates who require prescibed medications.

I have been present , when these same attorneys presented evidence that inmates were being denied their civil rights.

People , who continue to support Sheriff Arpaio and the County District Attorney - for the most part - have never set foot inside a county courtroom to learn the truth concerning this " Third World" enviroment.

There are many valley citizens , who see through this maze of smoke and mirrors. It is important that we all realize that there are feasible options to rectify this horrible example of people turning up their noses at our sacred doctrines.

We have the right , as citizens , to petition the Federal government , and submit a detailed list of legal greivances against those elected officials - who continue to circumvent and subvert the laws of our land.

Everybody needs to focus on something they've probably never considered. If these two political giants are filing cases agaisnt the very people - who avail themselves daily to bring true justice to the county - what are earth is happening to the indigent defendents caught in the nightmare of a legal representation - who would rather plea-bargain than to right a wrong ?

As far as I am concerned, the illegals & their "supporters" have started this lynch-mob mentality. There is no other sane reason to stop a man that actually can't be paid off for not doing his job!! It would be so much easier just to go along--expend less energy--& get your paycheck. However, he & his Family has lived here for many years and I believe he actually loves our Arizona and his Country, and has no intentions of selling us out--like so many others are doing---as we speak!! As the saying goes, "What are these "supporters" getting out of this"? Is it mere stupidity--or much more? And I have the same question regarding our government/ homeland security stopping him from finding & deporting the illegals-------

Let me start by saying, I am a white woman. I can luckily say I have a full time, good-paying, job and am also going to law school. I do not do any kind of drugs.
My good friend is a respectable, caring, wonderful person. No one who meets her will forget her personality because she is a shining star. She is also epileptic. She has seizures but was on medicine to control them. She is enrolled in school at Arizona State University (West), but resides in North Scottsdale, Arizona; if you’re a snowbird, North Scottsdale is a very nice area and known to be relatively safe- at least I feel safe here. She is studying psychology and is now one semester away from having her Bachelor’s degree. She also had a boyfriend who she was sexually active with, so she began to take Yaz birth control prescribed by her doctor- as safe. She had gone to a typical little college party on weekend and smoked some cannabis to have some fun. Don’t worry she didn’t die or kill anyone, for you small percentage of people freaking out.
Three days later on a Tuesday, she was driving in her dated car to see her boyfriend. When she turned left onto a semi-rural road, she began to seizure. She ran into a tree at the speed of 45 mph and slipped over and through her seatbelt. She went through the front windshield and was badly injured. A Phoenix police officer- no, an angel from God- saved her life, pulled her out of the car, and notified paramedics. However, the accident did not occur in Phoenix. The accident occurred in Yavapai County, so a Yavapai police officer was called to the hospital. Once there she did not ask how my friend was doing, she did not notify the parents, and she did not give a darn- she was Hispanic by the way. HAH. She ordered a blood sobriety test immediately. Yet the Phoenix Officer stayed at the hospital to fight hard for the case, contacted the family, and argued that a blood sobriety test wasn’t the most important thing. He stayed until the family arrived and explained everything. He did not get control of the case.

She had a minute blood THC level, and was given a DUI. The amount was so small that the toxicology report (paid for by the family) said it was, “not enough THC to have impaired her while driving ... Would have consumed THC days sooner than the accident.” A letter from Mayo clinic wrote “Cannabis cannot increase the amount of the patient’s seizures; it can however decrease the amount of the patient’s seizures.” Cannabis is also distributed medically in many countries to reduce the amount of seizures. Despite the fight, my poor friend had to spend her school-free weekend in “tent city” for a DUI. She had to sleep on the floor with a tiny pad on the medical ward floor to receive her seizure medicine. Once she was released she had lost her license. Later we found out that Yaz causes seizures which her gyno should have known- there is a class action lawsuit pending. Now in this market, she cannot get a job without her degree and a DUI under her belt, and without a car!
This is what our taxpaying money is being spent on: harmless, wonderful, driven kids who like to have fun when they get a chance. It is cannabis! Thomas Jefferson is recorded by himself to have smoked cannabis multiple times. It has also been said that George Washington was a fan as well!
Why isn’t Sheriff Joe spending more time putting the real criminals away? Murderers, Thieves, and most recently CEO’s- Hispanic or not, a criminal is a criminal. If they happen to be an illegal alien then deport them to their own country. What has changed that much since the past? What makes now so different?
If you are that worried about drugs than legalize cannabis and tax it. Think back to the alcohol ban in the early 1900’s. Once alcohol was legalized there was less rebellion, crime, and immigrants. Once cannabis is legalized it will increase Government spending, and the Gross Domestic Profit (GDP) of our country. In turn, the dollar will appreciate and saving will increase.
I can’t promise it would drive out the ‘Mexicans’ (sorry racist folks), but I would bet my house that it would drive out the Hispanic criminals.

No we'll just get it back from Joe. It was not his to begin with. The money could feed a lot of starving single moms. Joe probably would not care about that though. Oh and I looked up corruption like you asked and found a picture of some fat Italian mafia don wannabe named Joe there. :)

I am about as lib as Rush. You can throw that Lib label if you wish. I call them as I see them. Joe is senile and likes to waste money. Wasting money is often thought of as a liberal ideal.

Kudos to the Phoenix Police for their arrest of 5 human smugglers last night. They did their arrest the professional way and did not create circus the Joe way. I am sure every one of their arrests was legal. I am sure that there is no malice or showboating in their operation.


Smugglers Arrested
11 Illegal Iimmigrants Held Against Their Will Freed
Elias Johnson
Reporter, KPHO.com

POSTED: 12:09 am MST January 3, 2010
UPDATED: 12:08 pm MST January 3, 2010
PHOENIX -- For the second time in as many nights, emergency crews were called to a home near 51st Avenue and Encanto Boulevard.

Police said they found 11 illegal immigrants being held for ransom inside. Several of them had been pistol-whipped, officers said.

Officers learned the victims had paid $1,500 to $7,000 to be transported into the U.S. and the smugglers were demanding an additional $3,000 for their release, said Officer James Holmes.

None of the victims had received food for up to five days, Holmes said.

Just 24 hours earlier, some of the illegals set fire to a building where they were being held prisoners, police said.

"Interestingly enough, some of the individuals were actually kept in the rear shed last night and because of the abuse they had been suffering they actually set fire to the shed,” says Phoenix police Lt. John White.

“And we got word Phoenix fire responded and put out the fire," White said. "We still have to verify that but we do have a burned shed out there."

The armed men holding the immigrants hostage surrendered peacefully.

Yes illegal, but again, without malice, without ego, within legal guidelines, without trolling the streets and stopping people whose only crime is being brown.

I would suspect that the act of treason against the lawful citizens of these United States and the willful obstruction of justice in Maricopa county, perpetrated by one ( Lydia Guzman ) will ultimately be the death of her. I also suspect, that her illegal Mexican friends will be more than happy to hold the all revered ( Car Wash ) in her honor, although she is apparently devoid of any honor whatsoever, to help with her funeral expenses.

Sheriff Joe, and Thomas are bucking the political might of entrenched liberals. This liberal sleaze will defend their own criminals no matter how much they steal. The liberals are making up so much mud to throw it may cause Arizona a water shortage problem. Want to know how you can tell a liberal is lying? Their lips are moving. The liberal politician screams for justice, but every good and intelligent person knows that is really what they fear most.

The last time I even saw someone who qualified as a LIBERAL was some college professor Art teacher whose classes I took. LIBERAL now refers to anything the extreme hard headed nazi fags don't like. I am conservative, from a long line of true conservatives. You don't like my views on the corrupt cancer that is Joe Arpaio? I don't care! You can cramm it up yer ass! Conservative principles embody the principles of discipline, hard work, self empowerment, and above all FAIRNESS, not the rabid nazi nastyness and hate that you and Joe Arpaio spew forth into the world daily!

I am so sick of your biased opinions of Joe Arpaio. I thought the news was to state facts and not opinions. News five must have a lot of illegal relatives in the country.
Thanks Joe for trying to enforce the laws that the citizens of our state voted in. Too bad the other politicians forgot why they were elected. What percentage of Maricopa county citizens voted Joe back into office? That should tell you something. Oh, by the way, I stopped watching News 5, I want to make sure that the news I watch isn't biased and gives me only the facts. I want to be able to make my own opinions.

You've got one thing right. The sheriff is a politician. He is not an effective law enforcement officer. That is what Maricopa county needs in the 21st century.

Investigations,my eye! Relatives of the illegals started hooting & hollering--as Joe was getting too close for comfort. Every kid/young adult knows that he better be carrying their ID card/license with them---no matter if they are in a car, riding their bikes, etc--as they are stopped routinely & questioned as to where they are coming from--where they are going, etc.--especially if they are not dressed in the latest,& the police officer wants to check them out--as he may have a bad feeling, or a hunch---& it doesn't matter what color they are!! What makes it any different for the Hispanics--when we know this smuggling has gotten completely out of hand?? ---getting too close for comfort--they may not get their whole village in here!!

You sound like a robot. "JOE IS JUST DOING HIS JOB...BLAH BLAH BLAH..."

I doubt very much that Joe is doing his job. Here are some things that are not a part of his job.

Civil Rights Violations (there are 5 lawsuits in teh courts right now, filed by AMERICAN CITIZENS)

Harassing the innocent, There are a couple of lawsuits right now filed again by AMERICAN CITIZENS.

I'll bet there are some illegal search and seizure suits coming up as well.

The sheriff obviously has no regard for the laws you say he is upholding. Doing his Job you say? Well certainly not very well. Why don't you GET A JOB yourself?
