Of Land Deals And Supervisor Indictments
It's been a busy week for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and County Attorney Andrew Thomas. On Tuesday, the two announced the indictments of Maricopa County Supervisors Mary Rose Wilcox and Don Stapley on multiple charges, leading 5 Investigates reporter Morgan Loew to wonder if Arpaio's own land deals violate the same law. Today, deputies served a search warrant on a charity with ties to Wilcox.

Also today, detention officer Adam Stoddard was freed pending the outcome of his appeal. Stoddard gained notoriety when he took a paper from a defense attorney's file, landing himself in jail when he refused to apologize.

I support Joe 100% for his efforts to combat the influx of illegals in Maricopa County. Too bad so many of our other leaders stick their heads in the gound and ingore the problem. He may not be much of a speaker, but Joe takes action, and we thank him for that! Keep up your good work, Joe.

This sheriff is a relic and should be kept in a museum with the Sun City crowd. His tactics are those of an unscrupulous union boss. He would be "at home" in the Chicago or New Jersey of the 50's.

Joe Arpaio is enforcing the law as he should. The only people that are fighting him are the people that do not want any scrutiny. What this country needs are a few more Joe Arpaios and a whole bunch of Judge Roy Beans

Arpaio has done a good job with the jails. Everything else he does is to stroke his own ego. Arpaio and his upper staff are a bunch of thieves and bullies. He is following the plan of another nutcase “Hitler”. Like Hitler he has picked a group for all his moronic supporters to hate. This takes attention away from him and his band of thieves. I can’t wait for the day when this Bozo passes away or loses an election. Maybe it will be soon. Great jobs Joe now retire, and stop wasting our money.

People that support Arpaio are simply put...idiots! He tramples on the rule of law, abuses his power, wastes MILLIONS with his stupid lawsuits, spends most of his time on t.v. instead of being a PROFESSIONAL law enforcement official.His main job is law enforcement. That is, using resources to keep our society safe. He's wasting those limited resources (i.e. money) on things that do NOTHING to keep us safer. Nothing. Again... Joe supporters are idiots and I can only wonder about their average educational level. Ignorant morons.

He is known as "America's Toughest Sheriff" for a reason. Our prisons and jails are more like hotels and he laid down the law by making it tougher for those who break the law. Our country is full of so much red tape that we have taken things to the point of ridiculous. You cannot even discipline your children anymore without being arrested for child abuse or stop on the side of the road in an emergency to use the bathroom without fear of being arrested for indecent exposure and then having to register as a sex offender. What has become of our country?

I see people commenting on all the millions Joe is spending on stupid stuff... Hmmmm... what about all the money he has saved our state by implementing changes in the jails?

He cut inmate meals to two times a day, serving them surplus meals. He kept sexually explicit materials from them for obvious reasons, he started an in-house radio station which broadcasts only clean music, oldies, opera, patriotic music and educational programming. It plays from the basement of the county jail.

He set up Tent City for more room to house inmates. It is next to a building that has toilets, showers, and a place to eat. It has actually become a very famous place due to its location in Phoenix Arizona because it gets so hot outside during the summer. They are given fans and a lot of water. I know they complain and the inmates families complain...but maybe they will think twice about breaking the law again. What do you think? Jail and prison should not be a place of comfort as many have become. So many inmates end up going back because prison is better than what they have on the outside. That is absolutely insane! Joe told the inmates to stop complaining because our American soldiers deal with the heat everyday in Iraq and they are men of integrity who never broke the law. I agree with all he has done. I think it is humiliating that they have to wear only pink underwear.... and so who cares? Once again... they broke the law!!! Joe has been criticized by so many people and public officials about human rights, constitutional rights, and about being the Meanest Sheriff ever. I salute you Joe! We need more people like you to stop all the crap our government officials are throwing at us.

In 2005 Arizona state law made it a felony to anyone who smuggled aliens across the border. This was already a federal crime. Also at this time they made it legal for local police to arrest anyone breaking this immigration law. Joe told all who worked for him to arrest those who are here illegally. He was going to drag them to his jail and not turn over to the feds. Why you ask? Well, as history shows...they would just be turned over to their own and shipped back home... all to come back again and again. What happens when an American gets arrested in Mexico? I doubt they are as nice as Sheriff Joe is.

How sad is it that inmates can sue those who imprison them for bad treatment? Again... stop breaking the law you idiots! If you want to be treated decent.. then get a job, work hard, and obey the law!

For those of you comparing Joe to Hitler...PLEASE.... read your history books people! It is reported that Hitler killed 11 Million people. About 6 million Jews and 5 million others were killed in extermination and concentration camps and mass open-air shootings. He had a hatred for certain races. Joe is not a racist. He just wants people to obey the law! He jails people of all color, no matter...if they have broken the law.

I happen to know a young man who spent 6 months in Tent City and he said it was an awful experience. However, he said it made him think twice about ever getting behind the wheel of a car drunk. In fact it made him not want to drink ever! I doubt he would have had the same thoughts had it been nice and comfy in jail.

Sheriff Joe, keep on keeping on! You will always have my support and vote! I only pray that when you do retire that you have trained someone else JUST LIKE YOU to take the wheel!!!

Let me see...
1. Joe has a jail where some things are questionable;
2. Joe has conducted stops/raids on Hispanic people;
3. Joe investigates executive persons;
4. Joe intimidates citizens who voice their concerns against him.

So tell me now, what is his job description? Does he have jurisdiction to execute all these acts in different levels of jurisdiction?

Concerns but no resolution...why?
1. Joe's budget?
2. Why does he need a military tank? Who paid for this again?
3. The way he mocks his inmates. He takes pictures of himself and puts them on post cards and has the inmates purchase them to write to their love ones. Who is paying for this? How much does that cost? The cost for the inmates clothing? But on the other hand, most inmates have to pay for their keep. Contradiction; What about the land you investigated? No discipline?
and much much more...

I do know the rich people of the city here in the valley do support Joe and he is their puppet. Where is his loyalty? To the rich and really not to the people he is suppose to be protecting? So what happened to his oath when he was sworn into office? Hmmmm.

He makes public appearances on TV Talk Shows, and remind me of who paid for that travel, per diem, lodging and meals? Where in his budget does it allow a public person to use funds for personal use? Did the City of Phoenix benefit from those appearances? Who is his supervisor? Isn't he accountable to ANYONE?

I truly believe he needs to be investigated for all his actions and his budget.

Thank you for being brave to investigate Joe. You are a TV Station with morales and beliefs. You are all doing a good job and I trust your judgments.

Joe and Thomas are starting to expose the "shady" Mary Rose Wilcox. This is great. Politicans are in office to serve the people not get rich. Why would a "charity" loan money to a politican? We know that Wilcox is getting a check from the airport restuarant because she has taken an opportunity from a deserving citizen for herself. The program was created to help Hisapanic business people but she took it and she is a politican. Joe gets re-elected becuase he enforces the law. If you do not like the law, change it. Channel 5 is biased against Joe and the law. Why not investigate thess politicans as well?

City police also deserve our thanks. You anonans don't come back with a sly remark, I could care less what you think. I moved here. I read about him and those working for him and for me.

If i was in law enforcement,and my constintuents,who developed the laws, slandered me for enforcing laws in which they wrote,I would feel betrayed and investigate the possibilities that they're DIRTY! Since the lawmakers are developing laws, that the sheriff is enforcing,my conclusion is that the laymakers have provided laws were racial profiling is legal! If this is untrue than those who are saying that our elected servants are racist,are HIPOCRITS!

"Never have I met a fairer man the Sheriff Joe. I stand with him and his Ideals and as a former employee of his wife I know he treats his employees fairly. Politically I stand with him against all the crooks who try to bring him down for their own self enrichment. I am positive he has been as honest in his dealings as is possible as he knows the law and has friends that would have taken care to keep him there. His life is the law and the standing between all of us and the trash high or low. If he wants to let go and retire then I wish him well but in the meantime I hope he still stands between me and the ugliness out there.

The last thing my husband wanted before he died was to make sure he signed his vote for Sheriff Joe...thats how much he regarded him and my husband was the most honest man I ever met"

I wish I could have spoken to Nancy’s husband before he voted. I am an honest man. I try to do the right thing. I don’t think raiding the place a person works is the right way to catch criminals. Criminals don’t work for their money, But it gets Joe on TV. People are working to have a better life. Paying their bills. Then some criminals move into the empty house next door to them, but they can’t call the police/sheriff’s
Office to inform them of suspicious activity because THEY will be arrested . Separated from their family.
Treated like an animal because they wanted to live in the greatest society on Earth. I am a US. Veteran. I was stationed overseas for three years . I know I would do anything I could to live here if I was not born here. How could I ask GOD to forgive my trespasses if I can’t forgive Theirs. I’m not saying let criminals go. I AM saying allow the people who make up the society at least have access to a LAW that PROTECTS not attacks them. Please Joe for the sake of decency RETIRE.

You can not come to my country & disrespect the laws. Come here legally & be thankful you live here. Please go home [where ever that is] if you do not want to live by our rules. I would be laughed @ [or shot] if I went to another country & started telling them they should not hold me to the same laws as their citizens. Please stop bashing our laws. The problem must be, even with Joe here, it is better in the USA than in your own country. Why do you think you have a right to say anything. Until you come into the country legally you really have no say. KPHO...you should not condone a corrupt city government. That is why Arizona has corruption...nobody stands up to them. It disappoints me to think a news agency condones corruption.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Seems to try to enforce laws. I am from Chicago, and found some of the laws out here to be a little excessive. However I have lived here for 4 years and found that the scum which lives here has to be treated different. I know people who have gotten in trouble for small things which were dealt harshly. Now Scum has nothing to do with race only temperament. I worked with people who felt that it would be ok to hit another person even if they had to do a night in jail. These were not bums, or people who are uneducated. They had good jobs and made good money but all of them were between the ages of 20-40. Why are people like this out here? I have no idea but I would not want to deal with them.

NOW, as far as illegals go. It is in the name, people from other contries who come over the borders are called illegal. So if it is illegal to do deal drugs, hit someone, kill someone, and to come over the border with out a passport is illegal.Sheriff Joe is the only on with the balls to do something!

I am sorry that this is not written better but I hope everyone get the point. Have a nice day!

If everything was that simple and that cut and dry, the founding fathers would have used a lot fewer words in the original writing of the constitution and the bill of rights. They would have dumbed it down so that nothing Joe does would be a problem. The founding fathers had been dealing with a vicious English King who ignored the basic human rights of the average man and abused his power. Sound familiar? So when guys like Joe or his supporters shout about what a patriot Joe is remember this, he does not respect the constitution of this great land and written by the founding fathers enough to obey it.

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.

From Ron Smith
Way to go Joe
I live near Chicago and I’m donating to Joe’s campaign. I encourage everyone who supports Joe no matter where you live to do the same. By doing so you make the statement that you want the kind of change Joe represents. As long as Joe keeps getting elected it will show all elected officials that the voters of this country are fed up with criminals being babied and coddled, and that we want our boarders secured
I wish we had somebody here in Illinois like Joe.
Joe I encourage you to stand tough and continue the fight. Not only continue but carry it forward perhaps as Governor. We need your kind at the top.
To those of you who oppose Joe you are either criminals yourself or just plain stupid. How could you not want the laws, set forth by your Government, to not be enforced. You are probable the same people that, when robed or attacked, blame law enforcement for not being there to save you . You cant just enforce the laws you want enforced and ignoring the rest.
As I under stand it crime is down in this area. Isn’t that what you want from law enforcement
You’re either with us (law abiding citizens) or you’re against us (with the criminals).

I don't understand all those who harp on Arpaio's handling the illegal situation as though it is the only issue. It amazes me that this one issue is enough to bring approval from so many people. Are the overwhealming masses of people writing in this blog so stupid and uneducated that they cannot see that the whole of the man (Arpaio) is evil? I have seen his kind of manipulation of the masses through hate before. Where? At the Annual Republican meeting.

I have seen how people can be directed like and orchestra to the highs and lows of a speach given on crime and punishment. They cheer when the speaker wants to grind the offenders into the ground. I think they would be happy if there were no trials, just accusations. Arpaio appeals to this low state of mass humanity. What a shame.

The masses really are fools. Act like human beings. Reject this tyrant and his minions.Be the eduacated people you are. Live by the teachings of whatever higher spiritual being you believe in. Then, Arpaio will fade into history as a tragic mistake.

Everyone says that Arpaio is doing his job. What job is that? There are over 40,000 Felony Warrants still out there that he has not touched. The Maricopa County Sheriffs Office does not keep with the mandatory time for 911 calls, not even close. There has already been in excess of 43 million dollars paid out to Plaintiffs in wrongful death and other lawsuits. Yet all any of you can say is he's doing his job? Why because he goes after brown skinned people? Now he's going after anyone that is against his policies, including Don Stapley, Mary Rose Wilcox not to mention numerous Judges for doing the right thing. His tactics are that of something you would have seen in the South in the 50's and 60's. He even speaks at White Power gatherings while accepting awards from those scumbags. He takes a photo op with the same. His jails are run by White Power groups and if you don't join you get a beat down. And this is doing his job? He has paid out millions of dollars in cash for real estate that is hidden from the public eye. Someone please tell me how does a man that gets paid a civil servants check afford this? When will people see there is more to this than Arresting Jose the Tree Trimmer? It's an ethics problem with the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office and don't get me started on his buddy Raggedy Andy Thomas. It's time Washington steps in and takes him out. He is the lowest of the low. This is your hero this is your clown and wit hthis clown in office expect the circus to continue.

Mr. arpaio is a disgrace to public office and the only thing more frightening than arpaio are the zombified loons that continue to croak he is "doing his job". The damage he has done to the reputation of Arizona sheriffs is incalculable. There is more to being sheriff than shaking down the lowest level of poverty stricken human beings for sport. He has yet to solve a major crime and provide meaningful public safety to the residents of county islands. His comical failure to ultimately convict public officials that make him mad has stopped being funny. The fact that Mary Rose Wilcox is an idiot does not change the fact that Mr. arpaio is a malignant cancer on the good name of honest law enforcers. My family is not safer because DUIs stay in tents and wear silly undergarments. Nobody in a county island is safer because 100 deputies leave county islands to patrol inside cities that have their own police so arpaio can pretend it is meaningful that his subordinates catch a landscaper. Say you just like the crazy old man and won't listen to reason but do not insult me by claiming his occupying an important position to assuage his limitless ego helps anybody but him. I really don't want to be anonymous but anyone that exercises his or her 1st amendment rights in Maricopa county in a way that does not evoke worship of this nut and his mindless henchmen is not being cautious. Do not underestimate these wack jobs. The entire county should be placed into receivership and every elected official and judge replaced. No matter who is right or wrong these people have shown they absolutely have no morals, ethics or personal pride left. Who is going to pay for cleaning up this mess when the kids finish their games?

Laws are being kept intact by Joe.

We are in a State of Laws, not a State of chaos run by the latest pop culture movement.

If I went to Mexico illegally to work, who would throw me food over the wall at the Hermosillo facility?

JOE ARPIO, Thank you for the Law Enforcement that Janet Napolitano is clearly inept at. If she did her job right , there would not be illegals and contraband in every other car around here. Importing voters hurt Americans.

The "Disease Queen" Janet makes Arizona a war zone, so she should be flipping burgers for a living, instead of building a $3.6 B castle.

Actually, Joe has violated a lot of laws. The illegal immigration issue is the least of his worries. The crimes he has committed are against American citizens. The day the indictments (FEDERAL) are handed out will be a sad day for him.

For those of you who think tent city is a hotel you are so very very wrong. They tents have no heat or air. The food is so disgusting that at least one of the very few who attempt to eat it end up wretching their guts out in a few hours. The bathrooms have sinks and toilets backed up with overflowing sewer water that is a hazard to the health of prisoners. Yes I believe in do the crime and do the time but the law does not allow it to be a health hazard to be in jail. Arpaio and his ingnorant egotystical d.o.s are not preventing future crimes from being committed. They are using their so called power to mentally torture inmates. I hope I never come across any of them outside of their little kingdom needed any human kindness or assistance. I will spit in their face.

SHERIFF JOE DOES NOT ALLOW INMATES TO RECEIVE LETTERS. POST CARDS ONLY. YOU CANNOT COMMUNICATE WITH A LOVED ONE IN JAIL ON A POST CARD. THIS IS A CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATION.
KEEPING PRISONERS IN 130 DEGREE TENTS IN THE SUMMER IS INHUMANE. THE TENTS BLOW AWAY IN STRONG STORMS LEAVING NO PROTECTION FROM THE ELEMENTS. HE SAYS HE IS AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST. HE TREATS HIS PRISONERS WORSE THAN MOST ANIMALS. I WISH THE FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS WOULD FILE A FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATION SUIT ABOUT THESE PRACTICES AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

It is not surprising that Mary Rose Wilcox breaks the law or at best the spirit of the law. She hinders Joe and other law enforcement from enforcing illegal alien laws. It is pretty clear she is just about the money. From her taking a potential opportunity from an hispanic at the airport restaurant to borrowing money from a "charity". She loves the greenback. Hopefully one day her district will wake up and demand better and remove her and her shady ways from office.

Why doesn’t Mary Rose Wilcox & Don Stapley step down from their positions. Are we forgetting how the New Times & Arizona Republic railroaded Fife Symington - who was later found not guilty - we lost a good governor. Also it was the Grand Jury that indicted these city officials( Mary Rose Wilcox & Don Stapley ) - All Joe Arpaio & Andrew Thomas did was produced the evident to indict?

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.

You guys at CBS can't have it both ways! You persecute Sheriff Joe Arpaio for doing something about illegal aliens and then you complain about the high rate of kidnappings, the highest in the nation.

for "anonymous" complaining about tent city.
1.) it will help the time pass faster if you write more post cards.Letters have to be opened, as they have to be read to check for the obvious.and it will give everyone in the family a chance to write one, so it will seem to the lawbreaker that he/she is getting more mail than others!
2.)Animals dont commit crimes against innocent people,and are deserving of much more than the terrible conditions they have now-which is really death row.At least if your "loved one" is in tent city,there isnt a chance that this day is really his last.
3.)He/she obviously knew the cost of the crime and didnt seem to mind taking the gamble-and lost-do the crime,do the time.It's not like it was a big secret that tent city exists.
4.) And-HOW DARE YOU, WHEN OUR SOLDIERS LIVE IN THEM FOR YEARS,DEPENDING ON HOW MANY TIMES THEY GET SENT BACK.AND THEY HAVE THEIR TENTS THEY HAVE TO LIVE IN BLOWN DOWN,PERSONAL "LETTERS"-YES THEY ARE ALLOWED TO GET LETTERS! AND THE HAVE PUT OTHER TENTS WHICH COULD HOLD FOOD,SUPPLIES,MEDICAL ITEMS- AM PROBABLY WASTING MY TIME BECAUSE YOU ARE TO SELFISH AND WELL MANY OTHER THINGS THAT WOULD BE BIG WORDS AND YOU WOULD GET CONFUSED.
sO IF IT IS SO BAD I AM SURE YOU WILL MAKE SURE YOUR "FOR NOW LOVED ONE" WONT DO ANYTHING AGAIN TO GET SENT BACK TO THESE TERRIBLE CONDITIONS. Any idea how many people go back more than once, must not be so bad if they continue the criminal life. Ever been a victim?
I think they get off relatively easy. Maybe go try living in another country,i hear the penal system is pretty luxurious in Mexico and South Anerica and Central America. Bye Bye

All elected officals should grow up and let the Sheriff do his job thats what we elected him for. You need to stop the in fighting among law enforcement. Mayor of Phoenix you need to grow up and get off the sheriffs back he is doing what we elected him to do we need more like him. If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen as the saying goes.

Way to go JOE

No we don't need any workers from Mexico. The number of Americans without jobs is higher than the number of Americans without jobs during the last great depression. Why would we want legal immigrants from Mexico when we don't have enough jobs for the Americans citizens in this country?

Other than the third world workers from Mexico, the only ones who want the modern day slaves to come here is the rich who don't want to pay a fare wage. No American can compete with the wages these immigrants are willing to work for. Why? Because most Americans don't have twenty of their friends and distant family members living in one three bed room house, that's why. STOP all immigrant workers legal or not, is what Washington should be doing. But until the majority takes control of our rich controlled government, we will have legal and allowed illegal immigration. If Washington allows immigration to continue here, when there is not enough work here for Americans, maybe then the majority will realize who really runs this country.

This is America and the American’s country, not Mexico’s or the Mexicans that come here expecting free food, medical care and housing. No, they have no rights or nothing coming.

TO ALL OF MEXICO’S MAJORITY
Stay home and fix your corrupt government. WE DON’T WANT OR NEED YOU!!!!
