    Way to go, Joe!

    PHOENIX - Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his attorneys said in a press conference Monday that the U.S. Department of Justice and Homeland Security have an ulterior motive in their investigation into the sheriff's office.

    Arpaio and his attorneys outlined their reasons for demanding an investigation into the two agencies for unethical conduct and improper political influence during the course of their investigation of Arpaio's illegal immigration enforcement policies.

    "After serving with the DOJ for nearly 30 years as a ranking official with the DEA, it is almost painful to have to ask for this investigation," Arpaio says. "But I must take a stand. Every law enforcement agency the DOJ has investigated in the past has bowed down or rolled over to the federal government. This agency and this sheriff will not. Washington should not tell an elected sheriff how to conduct his law enforcement responsibilities."

    Arpaio also said in a press release that the Obama administration is forcing the sheriff to bend on illegal immigration enforcement.

    On March 10, the DOJ announced it was launching an investigation into Arpaio and his illegal immigration policies to see if he was racial profiling the Hispanic community.

    Arpaio says since the investigation began, the DOJ investigators have lied to senior sheriff's office officials and engaged in an orchestrated scheme designed to acquire documents and witness testimony surreptitiously in order to discredit Arpaio and his office.

    In a letter to U.S Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Arpaio voiced his concerns about the DOJ's investigation into his office.

    One concern was that the DOJ and DHS officials obtained interviews and documents from senior sheriff's officials who should have been entitled to legal counsel but were denied.

    Another concern Arpaio has is that in the "100 Day Report" to the Obama Administration, DOJ investigators bragged about the accomplishment of the investigation into Arpaio before they even had any evidence or facts.

    Arpaio also says the DOJ admitted it based its investigation into Arpaio solely on "media reports". He says even Congressman John Conyers, Chairman of the Judicial Committee, said he had no facts or evidence other than what he read in the paper before he asked the DOJ to launch its probe.

    Arpaio's attorneys say they are certain this investigation is not about justice but rather about a new Washington D.C. administration that wants Arpaio to do things the president's way, for the president's purpose.

    :eek: Stalin, Lenin or Mao would be proud of SnObama.

    Looks like the _hitcago thug tactics aren't going to work with this guy. Oblah-blah and company have bitten off more than they can chew. Arpaio may have them behind bars before it's all over. :D

    I'd welcome an investigation into ol' Joe...and a few charges of murder would make me happy. He's a murdering, callous bastard.

    Just how many people have died under his "care"?

    Too many.

    Let's start here, shall we?

    Deborah Braillard, 46, was documented as a diabetic in the jail's health records. Her cellmates say a nurse did not give Braillard insulin, and then detention officers ignored her when she went into diabetic shock. Braillard died on January 23, 2005, ultimately from lack of insulin

    Can we spell CRIMINAL NEGLECT,. kiddiewinkies???????????

    For the next six days, nobody entered or left his cell. On March 14, Crenshaw was found unconscious next to his bunk. He had a broken neck, several broken toes, and extensive internal injuries. He was comatose, his intestines had ruptured, and his vertebrae needed to be straightened with a halo. Doctors told Crenshaw’s mother that his internal injuries were so severe they had to surgically open his stomach to relieve swelling. The sheriff’s office asserts that Crenshaw’s struggle with guards did not cause the injuries that led to his death. Despite the severity of Crenshaw’s injuries, the sheriff’s office maintains that these injuries were incurred when he fell from his bunk.


    The bunk is 42 CENTIMETRES from the floor

    Arpaio should have been charged with negligent homicide and jailed a long time ago.


    And none of you fucking Arpaio fans would be making excuses for this fuckwit, if this had been a US Marine or other military who had died in this fashion...you'd be baying for his blood and a full investigation.

    Nice source. Don't want to die in the good Sheriff's care? Don't do the crime.

    A bed 40 something centimeters off the floor? How about being attacked by another inmate? Should we now indict SnObama over deaths in Federal prisons as well?

    And the last question...

    Why hasn't he been charged in any of the deaths you posted from wikifuckingpedia?!

    DUH!

    Hey sonna, before you go spouting off, you might want to check the footnotes to wikifuckingpedia...

    The footnote for Deborah Braillard, has not a fucking thing to say about her.

    Nice fucking source you posted. Look at footnote #63, it's about Abrett Spencer, not Deborah Braillard.
