Sheriff "Joe" Under Fire Again!


Sheriff Joe is under fire again and faces a possible indictment by grand jury that could cost him his office. Arpaio's enemies have caught the ear of a newly appointed U.S. attorney, one who was the chief of staff of former governor Janet Napolitano. Yes, sheriff Joe, you need to batten down the hatches for the long knifes are out and Obama is feeling his oats. Obama and his gang will turn over ever rock in search of that one small infraction that will get you removed from office. These guys will stop at nothing to insure that more illegals will flood into the country. Don't forget Joe, this is census year and all those new illegals from south of the border need to be counted so the democrats can gain more representation in the future. More illegals also means more funds for all the social programs the progressives deem necessary in order to maintain continued support from the outstretched hands waiting for their handouts.

Joe, you are an obstruction. You stand in the way of Obama's plan for the southwest, yes you must go and your enemies are digging, digging for that bit of dirt, that will send you packing, then its good-bye and good riddance as far as those on the progressive left are concerned. Never mind that you are enforcing the laws of this nation, laws that the federal government refuses to acknowledge, let alone follow.

America’s Toughest Sheriff Faces New Fight

He is Arizona’s most popular politician and arguably America’s toughest sheriff, but today Joe Arpaio faces his biggest challenge: a grand jury investigation that could cost him his office.

“It is not right for law enforcement to abuse its authority in this way,” said Paul Charlton, a former US Attorney now representing one of Arpaio’s legal targets. “If you find yourself living in a place where law enforcement investigates its enemies and accuses judges who rule against them of crimes, you are either living in a third world county or Maricopa country.”

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is America’s fourth largest sheriff’s department. For 18 years is has been run by Joe Arpaio, a flamboyant former Las Vegas cop and DEA agent who turned a local law enforcement agency into a national headline machine.

Arpaio forced inmates to wear pink underwear, claiming the color ‘calmed’ them. He created the nation’s first female chain gang. He reduced inmate meals from three to two a day, claiming to serve the cheapest prisoner meal in the U.S. at just 15 cents each.

Arpaio eliminated coffee, salt and pepper from inmate meals and banned skin magazines from jail cells. Inmates' TV choices: the Disney Channel and C-SPAN. He created a tent city to handle inmate overcrowding. Those who complained about the heat got this from Arpaio. "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and the soldiers are living in tents and they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your mouths." read more from FOX

Ya know the more I read about Joe, the more I like him.

hbl said...

This isn't the first time. The details have gone hazy but the Feds severed relations with the sheriff some months ago regarding illegal immigration. But Joe shrugged and said he will continue to enforce State law, as I recall.

Ron Russell said...

You are right hbl, they did attempt to reign him in, but he simply ignored them. This however, is a far more serious thing and could result in him being removed from office.

Debbie said...

The sheriff has been through attacks before, he's a tuff old bird. He never scares and hopefully he will survive these latest attacks. I love the way he does everything.

Yes, the Democrats need all those illegals to vote for them in upcoming elections.

Joe can take on the entire Obama administration and survive. He is one of the few men who can. Just one more challenge for Sher'f Joe! Put some more illegals in Tent City! Go Joe!

TexasFred said...

They keep it up and Joe is gonna say SCREW YOU LIBBER BASTARDS in Arizona and come to Texas...

That man would be the ultimate Texas Ranger...

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

If anyone can weather a situation such as this, I'd wager it's Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County. All he'd do is make his need for an attorney public and I'd bet he'd have many Conservative individuals and firms coming out of the woodwork for him, pro bono.

I think sheriff joe is covered by state law.

Amusing Bunni said...

I surly Hope Sherrif Joe survives the long knives of the evil usurper obummer and his "czars" minions. I really like Joe! He has nerve and defends the Constitution. Oh, that he were President, instead of the disgrace we're stuck with.

Teresa said...

I really like Joe. He's doing his job and now Obama and his minions are going to pay for it.

Gee... There's a trend here... If you are in the military, Navy Seals, and CIA or a Sherriff and enforcing the laws of the land or fighting against terrorists than you get punished.
But, if your a thug, SEIU member who beats up a person selling merchandise outside a Town Hall meeting, or a member of the Black Panthers who intimidated voters this administration is okay with that. This is an upside down world.

Teresa said...

I meant Obama and his minions are going to punish Joe for him merely doing his job.

(L) said...

BO and his band of thugs are going to stop at nothing to insure their Socialist Agenda gets carried out.

This country is in real trouble if we lose Great Americans like Sherrif Joe! I wonder who they have in mind to replace him? You can bet the flood gates will be opened even further!

Frakking insane. The demoncraps will do anything, ANYTHING, to retain/regain their political power.

This needs to be the most brutal electoral slaughter in history. If we can keep it political, it won't require being made literal.

That Russian that predicted America divided into 4-5 separate sub-nations may have been correct, sad to say.

You know why the Left hates Sheriff Joe? It's not just the way he deals with illegals. It's because he's a REAL MAN's MAN! He's not soft!

The Left hates that stuff because he makes them feel more chic-a-fied than they actually are.

Fuzzy Slippers said...

heh, I like this guy! I'm not sure about the "calming" pink panties, but hey, whatever works.

TRESTIN MEACHAM said...

How is it possible that the same state gave us Sheriff Joe, and, Janet Napolitano? It's like Paul Harvey and Castro having the same dad?

Fuzzy Slippers said...

LOL, Trestin, only if you believe the state is your parent and should "take care" of you and raise you right (and right). Heh. I know you don't! That just struck me as funny. (I've only had one cup of coffee, so I'll claim under caffinated)

hbl said...

At the same time, the sheriff maintains he is upholding State law. So, if this comes to trial, will it come down to arguing central authority vs. States' rights?

John Carey said...

This absolutely the most absurd thing I have heard in a long time. It's as clear as crystal what's going on here. He is in the way of the progressive agenda and must be removed. So what do you do, turn over every rock to see if something turns up. I would guess if you were to do the same with our elected reps you would have to turn over to many rocks before you found the smoking gun. Heck they're committing theier shameless acts out in the open. Someone needs to make sure this not just a witch hunt.

aggie sprite said...

Wow, Ron...ya sure nailed it! Napolitano has been trying to get Arpaio fired/ gone/ six feet under for some time, and she will use the DHS as a wedge to pry him from AZ. Personally, I think she has it in for him because he took her crush. As TexasFred said, Texas will take him in a heartbeat!!

PatriotUSA said...

Go Sherrif Joe! We could use
alot more like him around the
country. Barry and his tribe of
liberal head hunters will turn
over every illegal alien to try
and hang anything on Joe.
Hopefully he will ride this one
out but as said, this is pretty
serious.

Mr Pink Eyes said...

Typical liberal mindset, the criminal is a vitim, while the person trying to uphold the law is harrassed.
I hope that Sheriff Joe does not back down. The American people are behind him.

Dave West said...

Fuzzy I think that may be the problem. To many people are letting the state raise their kids in the public schools. It's either that or serious brain damage, I have no other explanation for Janet.

Neshobanakni said...

I'm not a fan of everything Sheriff Joe does. But his treatment of criminals, and his attitude toward illegal border-invaders, make him someone we should back.
