Another Crime Sweep This Week?
The Associated Press is reporting that Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans to launch his 14th (since 2008) crime-suppression and immigration sweep at some point this week. He has not said when or where it will occur.

As you might remember, when the federal government stripped Arpaio of his 287(g) authority to arrest illegal immigrants, Arpaio announced he would continue to perform immigration enforcement under state law. In February, he said he would train all his deputies to enforce immigration law.

Well, today ought to be a good day to round up lots of undocumented Irish and a few green aliens!

In other news, the Phoenix PD and DPS capture about 70 suspected illegals and turned them over to ICE yesterday after a righteous traffic stop with no hint of racial profiling led to the discovery of 11 people in the truck and another 58 in a home associated with one of those taken into custody.

It is important to note that the Phoenix PD and DPS did their jobs with no fanfare. No televised announcement that they were going to do their job. No press conference afterwards to gloat about how they did their job. Just doing their job.

GO PHOENIX PD! GO DPS!

GO (lay down by your dish) JOE!

Joe Arpaio is one of the few law enforcement leadership types in the westen united states that is routinely doing the job that should be done. If there is a demographic associated with or at risk for precipitating crime i guess there are some who think Joe should ignore it. I'm glad the forest service doesn't ignore the smoke that signals the presence of a fire. I really hope the fire department responds to smoke that is coming from my roof or my neighbors.

David,

I beg to differ. Joe is one of the few POLITICIANS in the western US that is ROUTINELY KNOWN FOR TRYING TO GET ON TV to CLAIM to be doing something that he does not do.

Phoenix PD and DPS got 70 just out patrolling with no press coverage, other than local news following them to see what they are doing.

Let's see how many Joke gets with his highly publicized "Crime Suppression Sweeps" and let's see if he can do it without violating anyone's civil rights.

We ARE responding to smoke, David. It's the burning desire of Joe Arpaio to rule Maricopa County and control each and every political agenda and it's coming out his orifice.

We have a hose ready.

Stay tuned.

"Joe is one of the few POLITICIANS in the western US that is ROUTINELY KNOWN FOR TRYING TO GET ON TV to CLAIM to be doing something that he does not do." Touche' You nailed it, Liz. Arpaio is fooling some of the people all of the time. Sad that those fooled think that those who pay attention to provable facts and reliable reports and the publicly available records are blind- oh, well.

We keep hearing the same refrain, that Sheriff Arpaio is one of the few...doing his job. But always no facts, just opinion to back that view.

Why does the news media give so much attention and publicity to the law breakers and their coharts but little attention to the huge majority of citizens who support him? As the illegals leave we save taxpayer dollars and suprise, the crime rate drops. A rally with 20 pro-illegal supporters gets the comments and coverage, but no comments about or from the thousands of citizens who love Sheriff Joe. How about some real coverage of both sides.

Awwwww Simms (aka Henderblimp), did you get blocked again? Tisk Tisk. Need to watch those nasty comments and not make those threats. I know, it really is hard to do when confronted with facts. Himmler and Hess were the same way at one time, but you will learn.

I did not post the post from 3/18 ; 10:06AM. You can smell the desperation when Arpaio's drones pretend to be someone else. It's a form of ID theft.

Here's the post. It's not even articulate:

There are two outstanding qualities I've found in Sheriff Joe Arpaio: the first is his stance on Domestic Violence. When an alleged "friend" assaults a person they've invited to stay with them, regardless of whether the violent "friend" is renting the apartment where the assault took place, the victim of the assault is treated accordingly -- as a victim who has been subjected to physical and emotional trauma. The perpetrator of the violence, once proven beyond doubt that they assaulted a person staying with them, is taken away by Sheriff's Deputies and held accountable for their actions. This differs from some states, where such a situation would be deemed "civil in nature" and the violence against another condoned. The second impressive aspect of Joe Arpaio is his stance on Animal Cruelty, being that it treated as a priority in Maricopa County. I wish the same were true in Mohave County, especially where cats are concerned (Animal Control typically will not involve themselves in a situation involving abandonment or mistreatment of Felines). I would like to point out to Sheriff Arpaio, however, that a significant percentage of the illegals in this state and this country are not Hispanic. The English, for example, are not always in this country legally. And it is not unusual for people from Europe who appear to be upstanding, law-abiding citizens to in fact be committing tax fraud, breaking up the marriages of Americans and finally, obtaining citizenship while lying under oath regards "being of good moral character."

I have yet to find one outstanding quality in the sheriff. One quality I wish he had would be not to have a press conference for at least a year instead of the daily one he wastes our time with.

What most people do not realize is that the Sheriff has had his power since the colonial days. He was the big chief enforcer of the law.
And in case people don't know it, even the President cannot tell him
what to do!

He has not abused his power, or he would have banned the so-called
investigators from coming into his county.

His problems are directly related to the thugs imported by Mary Rose
Wilcox and corrupt Alfredo Gutierrez. They've had to go out of the
county to bring enough protesters because they cannot get them locally!

Of course these dirty politicians do not want the Sheriff in charge of
such powerful office. He has the courage and the authority to make them
accountable for their misdeeds. Mary Rose is not off the hook, we the
citizens of this county know what she is involved in.

Go Sheriff Joe, keep the corrupt politicians on their toes!
