I look forward to the time when a less sensationalistic style returns to your news casts. I have found the other news sources give all the information you do about the Sheriff and in a way that more fully indicates the tactics and dirty luandy of his political enemies also. I find it hard to tune to you in when I hear that you are going to report about about the Sheriff and don't like to here your spots anouncing that you will. I hope we will see all news casts reduce anouncments about upcoming stories that will be shown during a current news cast and they will be replaced with more reporting. Maybe yours can lead the way. Good luck from a concerned viewer.

SWEET!!!!Took long enough,his "alleged" power abusing exploits along with County Attorney Andrew Thomas have been common knowledge for years. Problem was, the Governor didn't even have the guts to do anything! I live in Canada and even know about this narcissistic Sheriff and his circle of protectors. Joe is perhaps just smart enough to dig up dirt on anyone in his way who he could't put in jail. Hopefully he will be indicted, put in jail, and we get a cute picture of him wearing those cut pink undies he picked out for his inmates!

Yes the system will do anything it can to stop Joe. Remember, they want the modern day slaves here and Joe still does what he swore he would do, uphold the laws of this land. I guess all that love to break the laws hate him, especially the ones that come here illegally. Joe doesn't hate illegals, he treats all criminals the same, he arrests them. I know, so many want to say what laws he can enforce, but Joe doesn't listen to supporters of criminals, he arrest them too when given a chance. If you don’t want to deal with Joe, don’t break the law, it’s that simple.

So what, all you haters want a different sheriff, one who won't enforce the laws of our land? Why don't you all go to Mexico, the police there are just what you all disserve.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Assault Story on a Retired Paramedic:

www.sheriffjoecorruption.com

I was recently criminally assaulted by two of his Sheriff’s after quading on the wrong road at Lake Pleasant, Peoria, AZ.

My story is at this link, which I just built in the last two days. www.sheriffjoecorruption.com

My goal is to make public, as many victims stories as I can and launch a class action suit against “joe” and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department, and the Peoria municipality and the Peoria Fire department.

I was worked over, cuffed and left screaming, gagging, during an Asthma attack during the arrest, all long having instructed all the sheriffs and the fire department paramedics that I needed my neutralizer and Asthma puffer to recover. Instead I was cuffed, roughed up, swore at while 4 sheriffs (one paramedic) and 8 Peoria firefighter/paramedics laughed, mocked and basically were betting how long I would last, mocking that the Asthma attack could not be that bad as I was still swearing and cussing them getting out 15 words. Begging them to put the cuffs on in the front so I could breath and deal with serious pulmonary and abdominal cramps from the Asthma attack, being roughed up by them and from the cuffs being so tight.

It was miracle that I never died; being a retired Paramedic myself I know how easy it is to expire without proper medication and from bronchial restriction. There is a criminal investigation opened against the two officers. William H. Coleman and S. E.S Osborn, but we both know what the outcome will be on that. Sgt Brad Licking of the mountain division at Lake Pleasant, just north of Peoria, AZ, is the “in house” investigator, I am sure I already know his finding. After my complaint/story is edited I will be email a copy of it and the link to him, I hope this is the right thing to do, but I do want to make this public regardless of the consequences.

I would like to find more victims so we can go after Joe and this thugs, making every story public on my site.

My goal is to make them all look like a horse’s ass, if that is the only thing I can do.

Additionally in order to get my new side by side quad out of Police lock up the towing company would not accept any form of ownership other than at “title” or “registration”. Because it was a new bike, I had to register it in AZ and pay the 5.6% tax and license the vehicle here in AZ to get it out. Kind of sounds like I was shanghaid into giving AZ more money. I did not want to register the quad here in a high tax state. This basically wiped me out as I do not have any income until my pension comes in, been fighting that for a year now.

I am from Canada, although a US Citizen, an RVer and live on the road, I am here in AZ for the winter. A copy of my official complaint is attached, the one on the website may not be current.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Regards,
Don

Arizona without Joe

What would we have now, if it wasn’t for Joe? Arizona would find it self billions more in dept. Yes that is a fact. Why? What Joe houses inmates for, is a fraction of the cost any other jail pays. Why? Joe is in a state where he can house them in tents, not billion dollar buildings. Yet the haters say this is in human. OK, how many of those haters are willing to pay more taxes to build multiple billion dollar jails? None lol. Yes this it the only place in America where we can have jail out side 12 months a year, yet Joe is called an animal for putting prisoners in tents. I would much rather be out side than in a cement cell if I was in jail, most inmates will agree.

As far as crime goes, if it wasn’t for Joe, there is a good chance a hater of Joe would be affected by a criminal illegal’s crime. Illegals think our police are pussy cats compared to the ones in Mexico, Breaking the law here is a cake walk for them. Except when it comes to Joe. The next time you bitch about Joe doing his job, be glad one of your family members isn’t a victim of crime, thanks to Joe.

You said, "I THINK THIS WITCH HUNT YOU HAVE STARTED AGAINST SHERRIFF JOE"

That is a really ironic statement coming from a Sheriff Joe supporter. The sheriff is after all famous for his own witch hunts. Now, after destroying countless innocent lives with the legal fees of his own vindictive investigations the sheriff is upset because he feels he is special and should not be investigated? Shows you where his priorities lie. The man is a huge pain in the ass and needs to be removed from office!

To anonymous,

All of Joes corruption? What, busting criminals is corrupt? As far as all our politicians go except Joe, who do you think is in control of them? Not the majority, it is one of the two lobbyist for each of our senators and congress men. Even Mrs. Clinton took $870,000 from the insurance companies to back off of reforming health care in America, back when Mr. Clinton was our president. Joe is the only politician I know that doesn't do as the system bribes. Yes the system loves the modern day slaves, yes Joe up holds our laws. What is the problem, are you a blind sheep or corrupt like most politicians here?

Just because the Clinton's are corrupt does not give Joe some type of immunity from following the law. I wonder where the sheriff got all of the money for his million dollar real estate deals on a salary of only 100k a year.

Joe's Money?

I'm sure he gets money from the book he wrote, whether he reads it or not. I'm sure he gets money like all politicians do. But who's buying Joe? Not the modern day slaves. Not the meth factories in Mexico. Not the meth backs that deliver over 90 percent of the meth in our country. That is right, over 90 percent of the meth in America is made in Mexico. Over 90 percent of Columbia cocaine comes threw Mexico. And our government calls Mexico our best ally??? I’m sorry, I don’t want a drug dealer as my best friend, but the system sure does. Joe bucks that system, he is the only politician I know that does. Obama sure don’t buck it, he said we all should learn Spanish, for a reason. Until we change the system that allows and protects the conditions of the Mexican majority, I only have one politicians views to follow, Joes. No I don’t blame the illegals for coming here. American’s protection of the currently ran government in Mexico gives then no choice. Nor can I blame Joe for what he does. Yes people like me do contribute to Joe. But I don’t think the Mexican government is giving to him, nor their criminals.

Sorry as a visiting Canadian, I see this as typical American shit. You got a Sheriff who doesn't put up with crap, and you want to shit all over him. You got criminals walking the streets and you have groups to protect them. we need someone like him in airport security because if THEY WERE RACIAL PROFILING we wouldn't be having all the security problems. Here's an analogy: If banks are being robbed by a one armed bandit - don't start wasting time looking for someone with 2 arms!. Same thing elsewhere, if the problems are Middle Eastern men - racial profile if you have to and eliminate the problem. Same thing with illegal Mexicans etc. But the way I see it - it is not the illegal Mexican that's is causing most of your crime. It's the good ole American home boy.
Either way you need to get tough on crime - and for that i applaud Sheriff Joe.

I just could not believe that on Jan 7th during the Raechel Ray show you interrupted with a BREAKING NEW ALERT!!! I thought another airplane had crashed into a building but NO both newscasters were elated to tell us that a Grand Jury was being put together regarding the Maricopa Sheriff office.

To all those who blindly support Arpaio:

1. He is about to get his due -- JAIL IN A FEDERAL PRISON.

2. You are going to have to look for a new hitlarian personality to blindly follow -- JD Hayworth, maybe?

3. You may leaarn to view America as it was intended to be -- free from tyrants like Joe and a place to live according to the law and the constitution, not the egos of those who think of themselves as untouchable and immune from prosecution for misdoing.

4. Learn from history. Tyrants like Arpaio have been with us before -- Adolph Hitler, for instance.

It is my hope that the next sherrif will be an honorable person (man or woman) who will not become scum like Joe Arpaio and his under- furer Herdersquat.

Sheriff Joe is a great law enforcement official. If you aren't a criminal, Sheriff Joe could care less about you.

Why is it that he's targeted relentlessly by pro-illegal immigration groups? In other countries, illegal aliens have no rights. Here - they're used by groups with an agenda typically an anti-American agenda.

To all of you Joe-sheep out here:

"What part of illegal don't you understand?"

The Feds don't call a Grand Jury over name calling or too many donut breaks. They are here because they believe there is sufficient evidence that Joe's actions are criminal.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it for a while.

Quit being blindly led to think he's REALLY doing anything about illegal immigration. He is NOT. It's just his hot button and he knows how to push it.

I am an "honest legal citizen of this country" and I never have and NEVER WILL support the actions of the most corrupt politician in Arizona, Joseph M. Arpaio, or his winged monekies David Henderschott, Joel Fox, Andrew Thomas and Dennis Wilenchek.

Arpaio is using small minded people like you to further his need for udbridled power. You, and those like you, are simpleton pawns that Arpaio and Hendersquat use to further their agendas -- power over the county administration, the courts and the people.

How much of an idiot are you? Are you not smart enough to see that you are being used? Open you eyes and your mind, if you still have one, and begin to think for yourself as a human being. No longer succumb to these petty tyrants.

There is not one county sheriff in any other state that has the balls to stand up to the Federal government, when the feds tell them to leave the illegals alone. Call Joe what you want, but he has more balls than any other cop in this country.

Joe fights to stop histories repeat

Roman Empire
Vs.
Wisconsin farm boy

Right before the fall of the Roman Empire, the soldiers came home from war, only to find their family farm taken by the rich, and ran by slaves. The Wisconsin farm boy came home from Iraq, only to find his family farm taken by the rich too. No more family farms in WI, only mega farms now ran by the modern day slaves.(illegals) Why? The Federal government cut the price of milk in half, butting 2.5 family owned farms our of business per day, until only the rich could afford the land. Which they took and started mega farms with. Now the modern day slaves are working WI farm land. Yes we are walking the same foot prints of the Roman Empire, right before it’s fall.

Joe is the only politician out there that is willing to try and stop the repeat of history. He arrest the modern day slaves and sends them home. He stands up to the Federal government. That is the corrupt Federal government ran and controlled by money from our very rich.

If you illegal lovers don’t like what Joe does, to bad. If you don’t like the system, change it. But don’t attack the only politician here that stands up to our corrupt money ran system. It’s people like you that will insure a repeat in history. It’s people like Joe who may just stop it’s repeat.

Jealous of Joe

After reading comments of the Joe bashers, it is more than obvious that many are jealous of him. How can a county sheriff become so famous, your words echo. How? He's not afraid of the Federal government. He isn't ran by the system that runs all other politicians. That's how Joe became famous. Stop being so jealous of Joe. If you want to be recognized, do something your self to say your through with the system. Joe did, why can't you?

To whoever it is that complained about Channel 5 news covering too many Joe stories, I would like to point out that Channels 3, 10 and 12 also cover them. I've also seen them on CNN and Fox national news networks.

Maybe the best solution would be for Joe to clean up his act, do his REAL job, quick mugging for the cameras and calling press conferences to brag about how tough he is. Then we'd have some law enforcement being conducted and the news stations wouldn't have any bad behavior on Joe's part to report on.

Just a suggestion.

If you really believe that open borders is the way to go, fight to change the law. It is that simple. People that support illegal aliens, or sex with minors, drug use, prostitution or whatever, just work to change the laws. Do not blame law enforcement for doing their jobs. Make the legislature do theirs.

Good ol' sheriff Joe has actually turned Maricopa county into a police state. Most of the people I know are wary of doing anything at all anymore for fear of being rousted for no good reason.
All you people that admire Joe are more than likely too old to do much other than play shuffle board and bingo.We need Joe to get the snowbirds and the rest of the residents that no longer have a life off the roads so that people that enjoy life are not stressing over the dim bulb that stops their vehicle in the HOV lane during rush hour to show his visitors from out of state the building that used to house a Lubys.
Joe is more drama queen, ego and bombast than anything else.
We can find another sheriff that up holds the law with out trying to be a celebrity and causing more harm than good.Joe even said recently that he could run for and be elected as govenor due to his style and self esteem....If that day were to come to pass I would rather be on I-10 east bound to escape the first county in the US to be overseen by a third workd dictator wannabee.
Just wait till Joe outlaws golf carts on the streets of Maricopa county...then all you righteous elders will really have some thing to bitch about

Why would he be afraid of them, he’s not afraid of the Federal Government. I bet he would even change the mileage standards here. To ensure we get the same mileage here as our American made cars get when sold over seas. They have to meet over seas mileage standards, which they do no problem.

Yes the feds break the law and are willing to start bull crap law suites against Joe. Still, God and justice will prevail and all charges will be dropped against Joe. Why doesn’t anyone try and convict the boarder patrol for bringing the modern day slave into our country? If Joe had the authority, he would. No Joe can’t control the federal government, but the federal government can’t control Joe either. That’s what the grand jury is really concerned with, the feds can‘t buy Joe.

Employee: That's two Big Macs, large fries and a regular drink, right
Joe: You got it
Employee: Okay, that's $4.22
Joe: Hang on for a second
While waiting, the employee collected and bagged the food, then returned to Joe, waiting at the counter.
Joe: I'd like a large Chocolate shake, too.

Joe starts to walk out without paying
Employee: Hey- you have to pay- it's $6.29
Joe: Cancel da' large shake
Employee: So that will be $4.22
Joe: (as he walks out the door)- I just saved you almost three dollars (or four thousand million dollars- who's counting?) by canceling the shake
Employee: But you need to pay for the food
Joe: If every customer saved you $3.00, McDonald's profits would soar, huh?
Employee: But we need to get paid
Joe: I just saved McDonald's billions of dollars, you should thank me
Employee: I'm calling the cops
Joe: I am da' chief law enforcement officer in this hemisphere. I'm also a restaurant consultant as of today. I'm going to call my depadies to see if you have a green card from planet earth, I suspect you might be an illegal alien, and it's my job to ensure you belong on earth.

The feds and Mexico can’t buy Joe

The feds told every sheriff in this country, “ don’t mess with the illegals.” To date, only one sheriff in this country told them where they can stick their words, Joe.

The Mexican drug lords too would love to tell Joe what to do, but they can’t buy Joe either. Joe arrest their meth backs, the ones who bring 90 percent of America’s meth problem to America. Meth is a very addictive drug that takes curious teens down the road of chemical war fare waged against America. That is right, meth is chemical war fare being waged against the United States, by Mexico. So where is our army, fighting for the system, that’s where. Insuring the war toy makers here make billions. Insuring the oil lords here can get their oil from over seas, where they have all their money invested. Joe is the only one I know that is fighting the Mexican American war and the real terrorist. No the Mexican American war is not over, just ask any meth back.

Yes the feds want Joe gone, but they have to get threw over one million of us first. The feds don’t stand a chance. All they are doing is proving they support slavery here from the modern day slaves, with their actions against Joe. Joe is the only sheriff in America fighting to up hold our laws against Mexican terrorist and soldiers coming here illegally. I think it’s time we all do what Joe does, stand up to the money ran systems that are destroying our country.

Five foot 6 and brown eyes

That is a description Joe’s deputies hear everyday, after a suspect gets away from a crime they committed. Do you understand why Joe’s deputies arrest illegals? What part of that criminal description is racial profiling? When Joe’s deputies approach someone with brown eyes 5 foot 6 and arrest them for being here illegally, that does not justify saying the deputy is racial profiling. The deputy is simple checking someone who’s description was given to them that day and everyday prior.

I’m not sure why the majority of illegals here fall into that description. I am guessing inter breeding maybe?

No matter how Joe’s deputies find and arrest someone here illegally really doesn’t matter much. What does matter is Joe’s deputies are doing what they swore they would do, up hold the laws of this land. Considering Joe is the only sheriff in our country that is doing something about the Mexican American war, do you think his replacement would do the same? Yes we are at war with Mexico. As long as Mexico keeps making 90 percent of the meth in America, which kills more Americans than any war prior. I am willing to bet a new sheriff would be bought by the feds, just like every other sheriff in America. Thank God we got one Joe. Too bad no other sheriff has the balls Joe has. If they did, the Mexican American war would be over.

Joe

A man named Joe
All should know
Yes he’s a lot
And against pot

No I don’t agree
On all he sees
Still I respect
Vote to re elect

There is only 1 Joe
All sheriffs should know
Then copy his way
For a much better day

Yes Joe has balls
Not hearing system calls
Not picking the law
He enforces them all

"That is a description Joe’s deputies hear everyday, after a suspect gets away from a crime they committed. "

So - Mark Gasser, are we to understand that YOU are in touch with Joe's deputies every day? Do you work for Joe, or the MCSO? It seems that you spend lots of time here and elsewhere defending him, and making up favorable PR, and changing the subject. How tall are you and what color are your eyes? Just asking, because if you're doing this at the taxpayer's expense, those items will be on your booking sheet, even though you might not be from another country.

You see, Mark, the law of the land applies to everyone. And don't bother accusing me of being an illegal immigrant, or ignoring any laws. They are to be upheld by everyone, and I was born in the USA and am white. Don't talk about imported cars, and how the rich are sticking to the poor, or any other subject not related to the performance of the job that Joe was elected to perform and which is paid for by the taxpayers of Maricopa County. Show us some verifiable facts to show that Joe is doing is entire job, enforcing and upholding all the laws. I know this isn't the first time you've been asked for some of those. No one who reads these comments have seen any of those from you as yet. You present yourself as having access to inside information, since you seem to be in contact with his deputies each and every day. So inform us with some facts, Mark Gasser. No offense- but your opinion (and mine) isn't worth the electrons it takes to put it across in a court of law.

I think he's somewhat courageous for coming forward with a stand that is seemingly becoming less popular with the passing of each day. A lot of it doesn't make much sense and isn't cogent- quite true, but I for one would like to know of its epistemology.

Allow me to anticipate that some might say it's a waste of the taxpayer's money. Would they make that argument in the case of the corruption in national politics? If so, they would have no basis for their claims of corruption (or "curruption") there- and would have to find another red herring to try to deflect the public inquisition of MCSO's activities.

Yes the lobbyist got Regan to take the solar panels off the white house, that Jimmy Carter installed when he was president. Yes the lobbyist got Regan to give the energy credits to oil, that Carter gave to solar. Oh yes that is a fact. Regan put 90 percent of the solar companies out of buisness, back in the 80's. Why do you think our two ton trucks get the same mileage as our two ton cars got in the 50's? Why? Because we let our government be controlled by lobbyist, that's why.

You want me to prove what I say without talking about cars or straying off the subject at hand. OK, no problem.

If I was Joe’s attorney, my defense for racial profiling would be so simple. The five foot six and brown eyes description is heard everyday by Joes deputies. Therefore, anyone they arrest for being illegal, is simple a description of a suspect they heard that day and the day before.

How do I know this you asked, unless I work for and talk to Joe’s deputies everyday you say? Well it really don’t take a rocket scientist to figure that one out or someone who talks to Joe’s deputies. I never said a word to Joe or his deputies, nor do I want to. Just look out your car window at a busy intersection. How many illegals do you see over six feet and under five feet? None right? Since one third of Joes inmates are here illegally, it is obvious Joe’s deputies hear this description everyday. So when the grand jury accuses Joe of racial profiling, all his attorney needs to say is the deputies had their description from a previous crime. The grand jury is going to lose, sorry Joe bashers.

This is a quite striking illustration of why there's so much corruption and malfeasance among politicians: They know that people will believe what they want to believe (con artists also exploit this fact of human nature). They also know if they keep repeating a lie people will eventually accept it as fact. And they know that few will ever fact-check their lies before they go to the polls.

So I wonder why so many keep complaining about the corruption and exploitation by elected officials when they themselves perpetuate these ills by their willful ignorance. I truly am not trying to insult you. You obviously want the world to be a better place, as do we all.

The fact that there is even a " question " about whether or not Joe Arpaio is properly doing his job is absurd at best. The job of the sheriff, is to protect the law-full citizens of maricopa county, from the unlaw-full criminals in! maricopa county, whether they be white collar criminals stealing our money, blue collar criminals stealing our goods, or illegal aliens stealing our lives.There is no doubt every race has their criminal element, it just so happens that through our own neglect of immigration laws, illegal Mexican aliens are the dominate criminal element in Maricopa county.Thus we have ( Lydia " the scuze " Guzman ) a self admitted illegal alien supporter, who by her own admission goes out of her way to hamper the sheriff in the commission of his duties during his crime sweeps.

Thanks channel five. Your blog to discredit Joe has more than back fired in your face. You gave me and other Joe supporters the chance to tell it like it is.

You bashers all fall back to the same argument and call Joe a racist. When the fact of the matter is, it is the illegals who are the racist. They blame America for their own countries corrupt government. You think Mexico would be rich if we gave you Texas back. Let me tell you what would happen if we did give Texas to Mexico. Texas would be one more place illegals would be running from and most Americans wouldn’t step foot in. Yes more Americans would vacation in Mexico, if it wasn’t for your corrupt government and police. Most here aren’t going to give your corrupt police the chance to kidnap them and be held for ransom. You think Texas oil would make you a rich country lol. Mexico already has more oil than we buy from them. Why? The oil lords here have their money invested over seas. No they don’t want Mexico to make the profits they make from over seas. Why don’t you ask your Mexican government what they do with the money from the oil we do buy from Mexico? Canada is the number one supplier of oil to this country. Mexico is number two. Google that if you need proof. The number two oil supplier to the United States, yet the Mexican majority live in third world conditions. Stop believing your government lies about America, and change your corrupt government. I’ll work to change mine, but I can’t do crap about Mexico’s, I was born on the wrong side of the border to do that. You illegals on the other hand have no excuse. If you want a better Mexico, stop blaming America for Mexico and do something in your own country about it. Besides, if America gave Texas to the right fall owners, Mexico would have nothing coming. Mexico took it from the Native North Americans and turned the Native North Americans into their slaves. So if we ever do give Texas back, say hello to the biggest reservation in America. Mexico, you got nothing coming. You only get what your corrupt government gives. To date the Mexican rich take the money and the majority lives in poverty. Yes be pissed, but not at me.

Actually some of you people just don't get it. It isn't all about illegals. It's about abuse of power and no accountability. The Sheriff has no one that he is accountable to and that transfers down to his subordinates. Sheriff Joe's department is not like other police departments and don't have the same disciplinary procedures as other agencies. They aren't subject to polygraphs to clear complaints from citizens. They just blow citizens off. They don't respond to legal freedom of information requests and are able to get away with that. We actually have proof that the deputies falsified their reports and were backed by their supervisors. We had no recourse. Unfortunately it gives all his officers a bad name when some are good officers. We just need better accountability, honesty and integrity in the Sheriff's office than what there is and if the Feds can do it then more power to them. Our law enforcement agencies need more audits to make them accountable for their actions. There is more corruption in the upper eschelon of law enforcement. Most agencies make their officers accountable but it never applies to them. Sheriff Joe's agency allows everyone to run rampant(if they aren't an honest cop) if they want.

Kindly cite a single post in which anyone called Joe a racist (just the date, time and name, if any, of the poster will do). If you can't be accurate about the concerns raised about Joe in print here- how can you evaluate his performance? How can anyone take anything you claim to be factual seriously?

I am by no means singling you out- you represent a certain viewpoint better than many of the posters here, and many of us find the singular inability to reason, or use critical thinking abilities very sad. You are an excellent case study, I think.

In court evidence is what matters- not certitude. The fact that this discussion is taking place in the country that claims to have the best legal system (not the fastest) in the world is quite illuminating.

Did you know that a misunderstanding from a previous landlord could result in court papers being sent to an address that you lived at 3 years ago which would result in a "non appearance in court" which would result in a "warrant" which would result an unexpected arrest?

Not all the bashers call him a racist directly, but do so by saying he is racial profiling. Racial profiling, lets think about that for a second. If your camp site was attacked and raided by raccoons, would you go after skunks? The illegals Joe is arresting come from Mexico. So why would Joe profile people with white or black skin? He wouldn't and doesn't. Yes he is only going to arrest a Mexican, since all illegals coming here from Mexico are Mexicans. Yes there are many Mexicans here legally, even though both their parents are here illegally. Where is the justice in that from the best legal system in the world? From the country that locks up more people than any other country? One third of Joes inmates being illegals. If you need proof for any of the facts I just stated above, googgle it ok.

As far as stating my sources, I am not writing a college paper, I am writing a blog comment. How many here have stated their sources in their blog comment? None right? Why should I have to? Most of what I say is common knowledge. Just because I look at these facts out side the box, doesn't mean I have to state sources does it?

Still I will accept your request. Please kindly inform me of what facts I stated, that you would like a source of proof to. There is so much more I have to say about the system that loves the modern day slaves, but would be straying off the subject at hand more than I have already. If you want to read much more about the system that runs this country, click on my name. If you find a blog there you want proof to, I will kindly give you any sources I used.

I take it this was the only jail you ever saw. I hate to inform you, you described every jail in our great country. Except the part where butch cut lesbians strip search returning female inmates. The work released females of Sheboygan county WI, are stripped searched by this admitted and bragging lesbian everyday. No other jailor makes these women strip and bend down in front of them, just the lesbian jailor. That same jail has the tax payer paying for AC in the summer, that requires all inmates to buy sweat shirts from the jail. That or freeze, see you get a choice. No inmates in She boy gay county jail can bring warm close in from home. Oh yes jail sucks, but not just Joes, all county jails are far worse than prison, ask anyone who’s been to both. I would go into more of your cries but the point is there are far worse jails than Joes out there, whether you can imagine that or not, it is true. Yes this comes from the country that still claims to have the best legal system in the world lol.

You got nothing coming, especially rights

If you have ever been around illegals long enough, you might say they all act like we owe them something. I seen this my self and heard it from legal Mexicans, whites, and others.

Why do illegals think they have the right to come here? Remember back about four years ago. When we found illegals coming here with cartoon like maps and directions as to the best way to get over the border. Given to the illegals by the Mexican government. It also said on these direction to take AZ, CA, NM, and Texas back. For these states are really the property of Mexico, taken by America in an illegal war. Of course all wars are illegal in the eyes of the loser. Sorry, our congress voted to go to war with Mexico. Therefore the Mexican American war was legal, no matter who fired the first shot on who’s land. If you wanted these states that you took illegally from the Native North Americans, your army shouldn’t of been taking a siesta when we invaded.

Yes the Mexican government puts these thoughts into the minds of the illegals. This takes the illegals eyes off the real reason they live in third world conditions, the corrupt Mexican government. In the mind of an illegal, the war is far from over. They are not using bullets as their first weapon to fight this war. They have a far greater weapon to use instead. Illegals come here and have ten legal citizens. Yes, whether your parents are legal or not, if you are born in America you are a citizen of America. When there is enough legal illegals here, they believe they can take their land back. By voting into office their own kind.

Their plan has only half worked. Yes the mayor of San Diego is Mexican. Still, what the Mexican soldiers didn’t realize, that even their politicians will be ran and controlled by the same system that runs all our politicians. The politicians that buck this system, end up like Kennedy and King.

Maybe now the Mexican soldiers that flood our public schools with non English speaking citizens, that cost our state billions to educate, feed, and give free medical care to, are starting to realize their major weapon to fight the Mexican American war is not working. I have to wonder what their next weapon will be? Hmm, did they ever catch the ones responsible for all the wild fires in California last year? The ones that started on the Mexican border and cost California billions in property damage.

Do you people understand why I support Joe? The only politician still alive that bucks the money ran, modern day slave loving system. If you don’t understand, just open your eyes.

All facts stated came from open eyes.

Is driving above the legal limit against the law? Well yes. Are setting up DUI check points profiling? Well, yes I guess but we all think it’s OK. Shouldn’t all the people who like to drive impaired be up in arms against the Sheriff office? Well, I guess they could, would you support them? Well no, they are breaking the law. Our laws need to be enforced. I propose all law enforcement agencies setup road blocks to check if we all are here legally. If not we go to jail.

PHOENIX -- The Phoenix U.S. Census office is working with Hispanic organizations in the state to make sure they get an accurate count of the number of illegals living in Arizona.
Local Census office manager Al Nieto said that encouraging illegal immigrants to fill out the Census forms is not only important for statistical reasons, but also for funding.
"We have many people who are in Arizona who are not here legally, but whose children attend our schools and go to hospitals, and those are all affected by the Census results and the federal dollars that come back to Arizona," Nieto said.
According to the General Accounting Office, 65 percent of Hispanic residents nationwide returned Census forms in 2000, compared with 78 percent of white residents.
Max Gonzales, vice president of communications for Chicanos Por La Causa, one of the organizations working with the Census, believes the government is just doing its job.
"The Census is doing the requirements of the constitution, which is to go out and count every inhabitant," Gonzales said. "An inhabitant doesn't mean whether it's documented or undocumented. It's every inhabitant."
According to the Census office, Arizona will end up losing about $400 per year for the next 10 years for every person the state can't count, adding up to $4,000 per person. If the state misses out on counting 250 people, that will add up to $1 million in lost funding.
Gonzales said committee workers are going to various communities to hand out pamphlets about the Census and inform people that filling out the forms is a good thing.
"It's our job to let them know that reaching out to the Census is OK and that their information is safe and secure," Gonzales said. "This does impact them on a real micro level."
But one illegal immigrant, who identified himself only as Pedro, said he doesn't plan on filling out the Census form.
"They call us illegals and we don't count for the government," Pedro said. "They push us away and they don't want us here. So what (do) they want us (for)? Just (so) we get counted for money?"

And there you have it my friends; the sole reason our elected officials are pushing so hard to get sheriff Joe Arpaio out of office, the sheriff is not deporting illegal aliens back across the border he’s deporting “ MONEY “ back across the border and this bankrupt state can’t have that happen. It is my opinion that the elected officials of the state of Arizona, are supporting groups such as Chicanos Por La Causa, La-Raza, and ( Lydia “ the scuz “ Guzman ) and her ( We are Not!! America Coalition ) in order to bring in and retain as many “ illegal aliens as possible, in order to defraud the Federal Government out of Millions of dollars during the 2010 census period. If ever a Federal investigation was warranted, this is it and should begin at the state capital and work it’s way down. In lieu of a Federal investigation into the working’s at the State Capital, we are forced to live with a criminal illegal alien element, because” they amount to Money for the state. If you don’t believe me, just ask Pedro. That’s my opinion, what’s yours? J.W. Simms.

J.W. Simms,
Thanks for the info. Yes illegals are all about money for the systems. No, you won't see Wall Mart or any other buisness giving contributions to Joe. If you don't make money from the illegals, you are paying for them. Yes, everyone who doesn't hire illegals, should be contributing to Joe. Thanks Joe, for standing up the the corrupt money ran systems that run this country. Once we have more like you in politics, we will have a country for the people by the people. Not one for the rich paid for by the people.

I see things in black and white you say?

No I won't being going to a college who's professors say America is a service country and manufacturing is out. I learned in grade school that you have to have industry to survive as a country. Yet college professors say we don't need it? Hmm, we sent our jobs over seas and now we have no work. Lol, how dumb are you? My education came from the school of life, not the school of money ran systems.

Because I see enforcing all our laws as being right, you say I am wrong? Who’s the one who sees in black and white here? You illegal lovers only see a human who needs to work, so you think it is OK to break the laws of this land. If you really love the Mexican majority so much, why do you support the systems that protects and allows the Mexican government to rob it’s majority blind? You are doing nothing to help the Mexican majority by helping illegals. You are simple supporting the corruption of both the Mexican and American governments.

I see far past the black and white color of illegal immigration, it is you who is color blind.

Pink socks and underwear,

Joe is the only sheriff in the country that provides socks and underwear for his inmates. If it wasn't for all the illegal Mexicans Joe arrest without socks and underwear, he wouldn't have to. If Joe has to provide their under cloths, why should they be white? Free socks and underwear should be pink I say. Joe is not prejudice either, he makes all his inmates wear pink socks and under wear lol.

In my opinion I think the world of this man, Sherriff Joe. I don't know him personally but I'd be proud to. Irregardless of anything else I feel that he takes the tough issues to task. He and his deputies swore to uphold the law and keep us safe and I am appalled that they take such flack for doing just that. In Maricopa County if you do the crime you do the time. Good for you Sherriff Joe! We support you.

You people are all STUCK in the "illegal immigrant" mode. Do none of you get it is NOT about that???! It's about "investigating" people when NO CRIME has been committed. An investigation takes place when a crime HAS been committed. If an "investigation" is taking place and NO crime has been committed, THAT is intimidation, harassment and a waste of the taxpayers' dollars!

This has NOTHING to do with enforcing laws of illegal immigration, it has EVERYTHING to do with abuse of power. That means utilizing one's elected office for PERSONAL vendetta, PERSONAL agenda, PERSONAL retaliation. THAT is abuse of power............or perhaps you would all like to support the KGB as well? A perfect example of abuse of power is when Joe marched in and locked down the computers and threatened to arrest every county employee in that office if they did not leave their place of work immediately. What?! Excuse me, but I would expect people from both sides of that situation to have been able to sit down and decide they had a serious problem with the criminal database needing less accessibility to all and they should've resolved the matter. But to go in, lockout everyone from the computers except for MCSO officials was BLATANT and obvious abuse of power. Joe made a grievous error and did overstep his bounds.

On a personal note, myself, I am sick to death of this perpetual pissing match between ALL departments in this county (and state!)and the whole lot of them, right OR wrong need to be tossed out on their rears! At a time when our economy is suffering the most they are costing taxpayers far more than any of them are worth, but their own pockets are nicely lined! Fire them ALL! I'm sick of every last one of them! This county and this state is like one big Romper Room for crooks and it's time to kick them ALL OUT!

To the anonymous above,

Interesting what you say here. Still, at least Joe did something instead of nothing. It was clear these people weren't doing anything to fix this problem and Joe took action. Did Joe arrest any of them? If not, I guess they have no claim to abuse of power. Yes the government needs to be cleaned out on all levels. Arresting Joe however, won't change a thing. When the American majority opens their eyes, we will have real change and a government for us.

No matter what subject you are saying this is all about, doesn't eliminate the comments stated against Joe. If I have strayed off the subject you say this is all about, I was simple defending Joe and comments against me. I’m glad you see we need change and understand the financial gains most of our politicians are about. It will be great when the rest of us see this. Still, I don’t see Joe doing anything to line his pockets, just things to change the system that has run every politician except Joe.

Fox 10 News proves Joe for Govenor

Oh my God, I just saw the Fox 10 news report about Joe’s alleged abuse of power hearings. They started out by saying “Joe will do anything to get money for his office.” Lol, oh my God, and I am shocked anyone would listen to a word these morons say. They justified this statement by saying Joe is against building the pushing four million dollar new county court house! Yes this court house is a huge waste of money as Joe says. But to say he said this to get more money for his own office, makes no sense and if I was Joe, I would be suing Fox 10 for slander. For sure I would be having my deputies knocking on these morons doors and kicking some ass. No Joe is not me and won’t abuse his power in such a way.

This investigation is over county officials claiming Joe’s deputies went to county officials houses on weekends and during supper time. To debate the huge waste of tax dollars this court house is costing. Again this makes not sense and their point and proof is what exactly? Did Joe arrest any of these money wasting officials? No. Did his deputies kick their ass for wasting our tax dollars? No. Did his deputies even do this? According to the group of illegal loving corrupt officials he did. But we all know, if these officials lips are moving they are lying. Their case revolves around here say, not actual facts. How many of these officials have Joes deputies on video tape? None? If it was me who was claiming Joe’s deputies are doing this and thought they would be coming to my house, wouldn’t these so called officials have a video camera ready to prove these allegations? Of course they would. But they didn’t!!! Because they are a group of liars trying to remove the only honest politician in this state.

Thank you Joe, for taking the side of the majority. Joe, please help all of us much more and run for governor. We don’t need a corrupt governor, we need YOU JOE! A man and politician who stands up for the people and is not ran by the money controlled systems. Like the ones building an unneeded court house. Just because these officials are getting a HUGE kick back from their friends in the commercial building business. No Joe didn’t get any kick backs, but he’s going to kick back. With me and many others ready to help him kick some corrupt butt. Joe for Arizona’s Governor for sure!
