    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

    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.

    Wanna blame someone?

    Blame the Board of Supervisors.

    An Arizona Republic investigation into Correctional Health Services reveals a system with chronic problems and top county officials who seem unwilling to fix them. Today, in the second of a two-part series, The Republic explores the value of an electronic records system and what the old system costs Maricopa County taxpayers.

    CHS' problems with managing inmate health data have been repeatedly blamed by family members, inmate advocates, hired consultants and numerous lawsuits for unnecessary suffering and deaths in the county jails

    Since 1998, the county has paid out $13 million in legal fees, settlements and jury verdicts to inmates and families for injury and death claims against CHS.

    Dozens more lawsuits are pending against the county. The lack of an electronic records system was a factor in January when CHS lost its accreditation, after almost three years on probation. And loss of accreditation makes CHS even more vulnerable to lawsuits by inmates or their families who claim poor health care.

    The Board of Supervisors has spent at least $250,000 on three consultants seeking solutions to CHS problems. All three recommended installing an electronic records system. The board twice sought bids on a system. Two years ago, there was a contract to install the system, but the board canceled.
    Yep, all his fault....

    Wikipedia 'sentinel' quits after using alias to alter entries


    Conflict-of-interest row forces out the Labour councillor who changed David Cameron's page

    By Jamie Welham and Nina Lakhani

    Sunday, 7 June 2009



    David Boothroyd has had to quit the Wikipedia panel



    A "guardian of the truth" on Wikipedia, the global internet encyclopedia, has been caught up in an embarrassing scandal after it was revealed that he created bogus online identities to change entries on the system.


    David Boothroyd – a London councillor by day, a cyber policeman by night – has been forced to resign from Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee after his alias editing gave rise to a major conflict of interest.

    The Labour councillor's fall from grace comes two years after he fought off stiff international competition to win a coveted seat on the 15-strong committee, which is responsible for settling hundreds of editorial disputes every day.

    His membership of "ArbCom" was no longer tenable after it emerged that he had committed one of the most serious crimes in cyberspace: sockpuppeting – the use of multiple online identities to create the illusion of support for a point of view, person or organisation.
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...s-1698762.html

    I am skeptical about attacks against the sheriff because the current administration will do anything to falsify evidence against him. Wikipedia is just to easy to use to turn public opinion against him. That by no means disproves your opinion of him sonna. I have had personnel experience with many sheriffs throughout the southern states during my younger days and a lot of them were little dictators that did whatever they wanted inside their jails. I am going to have to withhold any opinion on him because I do not trust the evidence.

    I haven't heard anything about these jail deaths. I like Arpaio and he is very popular in AZ. He wins reelection with about 80% of the vote each time.

    How can you not like his style??

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona) is doing it RIGHT!! He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them. He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights. Cut off all but "G" movies. He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects. Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.

    He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again but only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel. When asked why the weather channel he replied, so "they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs."

    He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value. When the inmates complained, he told them.....this is a good one...... "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."

    He bought Newt Gingrich's lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that "a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in my jails in the first place." You have to love this guy!!

    More on the AZ Sheriff:

    With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports:

    About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts. On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before. Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their pink socks. "It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the tents for 1 1/2 years. "It's inhumane."

    Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes... so shut your damned mouths."
