But the sheriff made his worst impressions while answering questions about his book, Joe's Law.

Basically, anytime Arpaio was shown some of the blatant bigotry in that book, he blamed it on co-author Len Sherman. And this was despite being read back his testimony from a previous deposition in which he'd said he didn't need to read his own book because he'd written it himself.

Arpaio was forced by Young to back off from a couple of statements in the book, including one in which he wrote that Mexicans don't come to the United States with the same hopes and dreams as people from other countries.. In another part of the book, Young pointed out, Arpaio wrote that second- and third-generation Mexican-Americans were not part of the American "mainstream."

"My co-author wrote that," Arpaio blurted out.


He has so much rope, he could dangle from the Empire State Building and touch the ground.

How long do you think it will be before his co-author turns on him?

I'll give it until the end of business tomorrow.

Wait a minute...you mean to tell me that when I drove through AZ a few months ago, I had no reason to be afraid of being harassed for being brown, because Arpaio and his goons would instantly know that I'm 4th gen*?!?

I'm just as brown as the other Messicans.

I'm a 5th-generation Arizonan. We were here when this was Mexico, and I'm here to tell you that my family is just as white trash as any other family out there, thankyouverymuch.

Arpaio can eat a dick.

There's no way this cockbag wouldn't try to take out others. He doesn't even have the decency to off himself.
 
2012-07-24 10:35:59 PM
it really wouldn't bother me if this particular DOJ attempt gets arpaio's scalp, but the stuff leading to county attorneys being disbarred and unraveling a whole mess of conspiracy and prosecutorial misconduct just seems like the thing that should be his death knell.

they would arrest and charge people guilty of nothing but opposing the sheriff politically, and did so for years - to a point of even arresting and charging a judge because a case involving their shenanigans would be before his court, and they didn't think him compliant enough.

i'm not saying this isn't reason enough to hang - just that there is an even bigger, ugly noose sitting right next to it.

NewportBarGuy: Goodbye, Joe. You're done here.


I don't think he's done yet. He could come out and say "I'm a racist. I hate non-white people, and I will use the power of my office to arrest non-white people until they leave the state", and you would still be able to hear the quietest cricket chirping over the demands of affluent residents demanding his removal.

Civil rights rarely win popularity contests.

"The fact that that type of work doesn't require any type of uhm you don't have to show an id, uhm, it would be easier, that type of work would be easier for uhm a person in this country illegally to uhm get because they wouldn't have the proper paperwork for other types of employment."

Apparently Arpaio only hires deputies who make him look smart in comparison.

Arpaio took the stand shortly after 9:30 a.m. in front of a packed courtroom and complained that he was suffering from a touch of the flu.


I understand that being hung over somewhat resembles the flu.

Oh, I'm very well aware. The only thing that comforts me is the advent of the internet and 24hr cable news. At least they can expose these people for the true scum they are. It may not be up to his constituents if the DOJ can rip his nuts off. I'm hoping they do because, like you, I have no faith in those types of voters doing the right thing.

I recently re-watched this movie a month or so ago, and I think it holds up extremely well, especially in the current climate of looking down on brown people being a "socially acceptable" racism. Bigots now have someone they can feel as if they are better than, because they're "only racist against the illegal immigrants, not against all Messicans." And they're illegal.

As a former Maricopa resident, his department has a for Driving While Brown. Or Black.

I remember being stopped a while back, and the surprise of the officer who realized I was white in an '88 New Yorker. He then grew happier when he realized that there were a couple of brown and black folks in the car, and ran us through a few hoops to prove that we'd just gotten out of work and were headed home. He also asked if I was being held against my will, despite the fact that we were all still wearing our chef's coats...

Apparently, we weren't supposed to mix after work...

Unfortunately, the phrase "Sheriff Joe on trial" is not a factual statement, either.

Yet.
 
2012-07-25 01:26:11 AM
The sweet thing about this is that everything that comes out in a civil case can be used as evidence (I believe anyway) if he is ever prosecuted criminally. He'd have been better off settling out of court IMHO. If I'm wrong, maybe one of our GED lawyers can tell me differently.
 
2012-07-25 01:26:55 AM
Must be something in the water from making factual statements. First Senator Kyl can't keep straight how much business Planned Parenthood does with abortions. Now the big cheese can't remember making racist comments.

He's not a racist! He just judges people based on the color of their skin, and deems certain colors worth a bit more judging than others.

It's totally different!

Wait a second here... Fox's headline sounds more neutral than the AZ central one.

Fox's article actually sounds like the potential for violations of the Eighth. Not the pink part, or the only Disney channel parts, but the combination of overcrowding and no porn make for a dangerous combination.

So what do you think about the current culture of "anti-illegal-immigration" as a form of "socially acceptable" racism? It seems that the highest proportion of anti-immigration sentiment is in historically racist areas such as Alabama, Georgia, and Texas, even though California has just as many, if not more "illegal" immigrants.

My snarky answer: Well, as long as you only hate the illegal ones, then I suppose it's all right. Personally, I only burn crosses on the lawns of decedents of field slaves. House slaves are cool, and deserve nothing done to their kin.

My non snarky answer: They're delusional if they think that it's easy to spot illegal immigrants just by looking at them. I understand that some people aren't playing by the rules, but this country was settled by people who left crappy conditions for something better. My German ancestors came over on the boat in the 1850s. I can't blame anyone else for doing what my family did 150 years ago.
