UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Joe Arpaio is safer in his living room than President Obama is in his home at:

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington D.C.


Obama does have a lot more guns in the house. That can't be safe, especially with kids living there.

Phaid: When people do this to abortion doctors, though, it's a horrible violation of privacy by religious fanatics.

Of course, when people do this to abortion doctors the religious right cheers and hopes that the inevitable threats on their lives will "teach them a lesson."

It's amazing how quickly positions and opinions jump when you suddenly have to walk a mile in the other man's moccasins.

/For what it's worth, I don't wish harm on Arpaio and think it's poor form to post his address - privacy is good.
//On the other hand, I think he should have been booted out of his post a loooooong time ago.

Sin_City_Superhero: Is it wrong that I want bad things to happen to Arpaio? For example, I think it'd be just awesome if he were indicted and put in his own jail, pink underwear and all. And make sure all the other inmates know who he is.

I think at this point, you're legitimized by his own karma debt. I personally don't wish him dead, but public humiliation?

Mnemia: This Arpaio guy is basically the embodiment of conservative dreams for America. This what they seriously want for our country: police state rule by "tough" warlord-cops. Corruption is okay, because hey, authority figures need to live comfortably in order to show everyone else how "respected" they are. Just look at all the supportive comments on that article.

Shut up! There is nothing conservative about this clown or the lackeys that support him. This police state crap is about as far from conservatism as communism.

Now I won't disagree that many people who claim conservatives seem to have a world view as you describe, but they are just intolerant xenophobes that seem to vote republican. Since the republican party is traditionally the "conservative" party everyone assumes all republicans are conservatives.

Those true conservatives out there have lost their political party, please don't wrap these guys in with the rest of us that believe in a particular political ideology.

I don't condone any vigilante justice because somehow this fat fark would use it to justify his position of being an authoritarian. Personally, I would love to see him put into a federal prison in isolation where he would eventually crack or commit suicide. I don't want this asshole harmed. I want him isolated from society until he's dragged out of the prison in a coffin due to old age. I want him to break mentally and emotionally. I want to see a broken man.

SnakeLee: TheShavingofOccam123: Gosh, the mantra of the amnesty movement has changed from "It's inevitable" to "It's Joe's fault".

Here's another tactic used against Joe Arpaio created by a "immigration advocate" named Elias Bermudez, a former mayor convicted of bribery charges and convicted of--get this--laundering drug money. I wonder how those drugs got into this country.

Please note the douchebag couldn't even spell Arpaio. Also, please note Bermudez isn't above using racist depictions of "his" people. Raza, I guess.

Oh and then there's this.

In April the Arizona State Bar filed a complaint against Bermudez (Immigrants without Borders) after previously being asked on multiple occasions to cease the unlawful practice of law.

Here is another tactic used to defend Arpaio by talking about someone completely different and never really addressing Arpaio, other than to compare him to a money launderer


Bermudez is the one of the most vocal critics of Arpaio. It is fair to look at the kind of people who attack Joe Arpaio for a living.

He's not just a money launderer, an illegal alien for 17 years, twice convicted of crimes and served to sentences for those crimes. You can see what Arpaio's critics sink to by looking at the pic Mr. Bermudez posted of Joe.

Just remember who you're working for. Mr. Bermudez thanks you for your support.

hubiestubert: Folks have to understand, that Sheriff Joe works out of an office in the near by Wells Fargo building. He doesn't actually use the Sheriff's offices at the County seat because of security concerns. Yes, security concerns is the official reason. Apparently, the state and city are incapable of securing Joe's safety, so he has been forced to take a high rise office in a comfy building a few streets over, and have the floor damn near to himself--at the city's expense of course...

So what you're saying is expect the sheriff to demand the construction of a nice new house for him as well, for his safety of course.

Really? So by sharing even the tiniest bit of an opinion with a group, you automatically are "working for" the cherry-picked worst representative of that group.

You realize that's equivalent to a Godwin, right? And thus has as much rhetorical value as "THAT'S JUST WHAT HITLER WOULD'VE WANTED!!!"?

Just checking.

I will probably get pinned down by the Farkmob for this, but I must say it...

FTA:

""Like him or not, I don't think (talk of violence against the Sheriff) is going to help our cause," Fleenor said, explaining that it would only be fuel for Arpaio supporters."


Why is it that everyone says violence never solves anything? Then what is the meaning behind war? Why is it OK to kill if the government says it is, but never otherwise? I really thought I was over this phase, but it's coming back to haunt me... I'm too old to keep thinking about this. But why can't violence solve anything? It has the power to solve nearly any problem you could face in your daily life. Let me outline this one...

1. Boss Gotcha Down? Cockpunch him.
2. Broke? Rob a bank.
3. Hungry? See 2.
4. Horny? See 2.
5. Need a vacation? See 2.
6. Politician abusing power...? What? George Washington did it. And that guy is my hero.

I don't condone anything that implies, supports or encourages illegal actions, especially actions that suggests mob mentality or assassinations.

Regardless of whom it is or which group does it. There is never an appropriate circumstance that cannot be addressed in a legal avenue such as the court of law.

He's an sheriff - Sheriffs are appointed by election, right? Can the public vote him out or demand arrest for any blatantly illegal actions the sheriffs take?

You are attacking strawman attacks by using a strawman attack. I strongly doubt that most Arpaio critics are against him because they want to smuggle drug money across the border. That is just asinine. If someone was using Bermudez' points then it would maybe be a valid tactic but nobody is even doing that. Either defend Arpaio's policies or criticize the politics of the other side but just picking out one of the random people against him just shows that you have nothing.

Besides, you should be much more worried about people like Marie Griffin or other people who have valid criticisms. The vast majority of people against him seem to be pretty above the level.

I don't disagree that old school conservatism is not the philosophy espoused by Sheriff Joe and his supporters. But I do think that it's fair to say that they represent what "conservatism" means today. Broad political labels are not static, and shift in meaning over time as the groups of people who identify with them shift. This police-state/authoritarian, complete with cults of personality built around the leaders, is what the conservative movement has sadly become. It's too bad, because I think our country needs more than one viable political option (winning "by default" means we get shiat-tastic Democrats like Harry Reid who aren't interested in doing much of anything). But as of now, I don't think I can ever vote for any Republican again until these elements are no longer part of their party. I just can't vote to empower people like Arpaio, even indirectly.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Why would a low-level public official need to keep his address a secret?

My county sheriff has his home address and number listed in the phone book.


Most LEO's keep their addresses & phone numbers like to keep their numbers unlisted & tend not to broadcast their addresses. My father was NYPD for 25 years and even after he retired, his phone number was unlisted. You don't want some low-life you arrested one day coming after you or your family.

Sheriffs, on the other hand, are elected officials--people usually know their home addresses, anyway. I lived across the street from my county sheriff for 2 years and he even had his own parking spot on the street.

/Seaside Heights has a hell of a reputation, but we NEVER saw any trouble on our street. :)
 
2010-02-01 12:40:46 PM
The local paper had a good story this past weekend about how afraid most of the county workers were of this guy. Before the feds stepped in recently, they were afraid to say anything- do anything. In fact, most people would not talk to each other while working because they were afraid their homes, their offices, their phones were bugged.

Once the feds stepped in, Joe shut up. He's been very very quiet. The workers finally started to speak up. The stories of Joe having his officers show up at their homes to question them on their jobs was terrifying to them and their families.

This guy has abused his power long enough. His poll numbers have fallen through the floor. I think we are seeing the real beginning of the end for this asshole.

My gf works in the media. She's been advised to do similar to what the county employees had been doing (though not to such extremes). Joe hasn't been afraid to arrest members of the media whom he believes are against him. How f*cking scary is that shiat?
 
2010-02-01 12:41:33 PM
CrispFlows: Can the public vote him out

The problem is who votes. Getting the average "I just worked 11 hours and want to go home and not stand in line for half an hour" voter out is difficult. Those that do vote in every election (older retired people) are easily swayed by Joe's scare tactics and think because he's cracking down on law-breakers (even the ones that break stupid laws) he's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

No. I'm willing to follow your rational as it applies to the Republican party, but true conservatism hasn't really changed. Just because someone professes to be part of a group doesn't make it so. Just like that Dr. killer people are talking about up thread probably thinks he is a hero, but that doesn't make it so.

And to show my true conservatism I can say this: We can agree to disagree because how you live your life doesn't really affect me.
