beb004: Mikey1969: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: It sounds like these cops were out of their juristictionWhere does it "sound like" that? I guess that you don't understand words like "Sheriff" and "County".I understand "County" and "Sheriff" pretty well. I live in Maricopa County and it is no where near the border! If a Maricopa deputy was on the border he was way out of his jurisdiction!
lilplatinum: A firefight between armed racist hillbillies and Sheriff Joe's men who are, likely, armed racist hillbillies?Wheres the problem?
Doc Daneeka: Shootouts between Sheriff Joe's Derp Brigade and those asshole Minutemen militias.Yeah, I'm not really seeing any downside here.As long as they go out to the desert and shoot each other away from normal people, sounds like a win-win all around.
Alonjar: For the record, almost all of these volunteer militia border patrol groups are out there to rob drug smugglers. That's pretty much their only real motive, and everybody knows it.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: It sounds like these cops were out of their juristiction while 'impersonating drug smugglers'.Maybe, just maybe, these fine patrolman had a little business on the side?
CygnusDarius: re great people in Arizona than I've met assholes that might agree with Sheriff Arpaio, then again, my circle of influence in Arizona is Nogales, Tucson, Phoenix and Flagstaff, so it's rather limited. Why is this guy still in charge of Maricopa?.
flondrix: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: It sounds like these cops were out of their juristiction while 'impersonating drug smugglers'.Maybe, just maybe, these fine patrolman had a little business on the side?If a cop is outside of his jurisdiction and doing something he shouldn't be doing when you shoot him, is it still considered to be shooting a cop?
CygnusDarius: So, when the two groups meet, will they do a Mexican Standoff?.
Mikey1969: thurstonxhowell: Maricopa County is not a border county. Since it is not a border county, they cannot see an illegal border crossing happen when they are in Maricopa County. Given that information, I have to question what these farksticks' game plan is. Brandish their weapons at any one who might be Mexican?The deputies plan was equally stupid. Drive out to the desert and honk the horn of a truck loaded with guys "clearly marked with sheriff's patches"? Genius plan, guys. Keep at it, I'm sure one day you'll find someone besides old guys playing vigilante dress-up dumb enough to fall enough for that.No, it's not a border county. What it IS is a county that includes a major smuggling corridor that has a US Interstate running through it, 20-30 miles from the edge of the county boundary, and a prime spot for drug and human smuggling couriers to just pull to the side of the road, load up, and be anywhere they want within hours.It's also not exactly a high use recreation area, since it is mile after mile after mile after mile of ugly, blasted desert, this isn't even the "majestic beauty" kind of desert, or the "hidden springs in the mountains" kind of desert. As someone mentioned, NOBODY goes there if they don't have to, it sucks. hell, I can't for the life of me figure out why people even live in Gila Bend. Except that they grow a shiat-ton of shrimp out there, apparently.

flondrix: Pull it at the RNC, and you will have a lot of poorly trained but armed people in the middle of a crowd shooting and hitting other people in the crowd.

Mikey1969: He's still a cop. Why do you ask? These cops were inside of their jurisdiction. A simple search for "Maricopa County" and the ability to read a map will show you just how much of that area near Gila Bend is inside the county's borders.

Sock Ruh Tease: Mexican Man Arrested For Mass MurderPolice Officers, Minutemen Found Dead Near BorderPHOENIX - A Mexican man claims he did not murder anyone after he was arrested for being spotted near over two dozen bodies near the Arizona-Mexico border, authorities say.Sheriff Joe Arpaio said that the man was crossing into the country illegally and had killed about 30 police officers and minutemen, whose bodies were found in separate groups in a portion of the barren lands between Arizona and Mexico. Shell casings, empty clips, Glocks, and AK-47s riddled the area around the corpses, suggesting that "the Mexican man had gotten into a firefight with the two groups, who were obviously working together to catch this madman," Arpaio said.Forensic ballistics reports were "lost, and we are trying to recover them," Arpaio said.The Mexican man had only this to say: "Me llamo Nestor de la Cruz. Tengo mi ciudadanía el año pasado. No he matado a nadie. Acabo de ver los cadáveres y traté de informar a la policía lo más rápido posible," which according to a Maricopa County Sheriff Department-supplied translator means "I used to assassinate politicians for drug cartels, so 30 gringos with guns was easy work for me." Arpaio says that the man will be dealt with appropriately. "I've got a prison tent with Jose Lopez written all over it," he said before dismissing the press conference. "There is much work to be done now, if you'll excuse me."A representative of the Arizona Minutemen for Border Protection said to us anonymously that they will also be doing all they can to keep Mexicans from killing them in the future, and warned against Mexicans dressed as police officers in order to get through the border and into America. "Those Mexicans are sneaky. It is their nature," he told us. "We are just trying to protect the country and the jobs from these smelly, sleazy [not-racist term involving the moistness of the opposite of a front]. It's not about race, it's about safety."
Freschel: Either this didn't happen or over 30 armed men were not able to kill one person./Crap I fed a troll
halB: Dear Sheriffs:Any dumbass can buy a patch that says "SHERIFF" and stitch it onto a bulletproof vest.http://www.patchsupply.com/Police-and-Sheriff-Front-and-Back-Patches -w ith-Velcro.htmlThat's one website out of a thousand.Thousands of people impersonate the police every year.Not only that, you did give this guy probable cause to believe you were a dangerous smuggler or drug dealer, because that's exactly what you were trying to mimic. You went out there to convince people you were a smuggler or drug dealer. When you do that, you're going to run that risk.
HotWingConspiracy: Does your employer know that you're insane?
Weaver95: Normally I deplore gun violence, but in this case I really don't see much of a downside.
LasersHurt: tkwasny: The hatred wishes for people to die from the posters on this site verify it is being run from the West Wing boiler room bloggers.This is a gold mine. "hatred wishes," and the phrase "West Wing boiler room bloggers"? It's premium derp.Smell it, smell the heady fumes.
Graffito: thurstonxhowell: and, while PA usually goes blue, I'm betting Shanksville does not.What's your reasoning there? I don't know much about Shanksville except that it is rural, and rural areas often go red.As far as 9/11 goes, that was on W's watch and we have had no foreigners attack us on home soil since then.
Rixel: (Figure One): Understand the procedure now?Just herp a bit here, derp a bit there. . . . Throwthem into darkness for a few hours, and thenjust sit back and watch the pattern.(Figure Two): And this pat tern is always the same?(Figure One): With few variations. They pickthe most dangerous enemy they can find . . .and it's themselves. And all we need do is sitback . . . and watch.(Figure Two): Then I take it this place . . .this Maple Street . . . is not unique.(Figure One): (shaking his head ). By no means.Their world is full of Maple Streets. And we'llgo from one to the other and let them destroythemselves. One to the other . . . one to theother . . . one to the other-
Bravo Two: So, remember kids, shooting people is bad and wrong, except when it's people we don't like, then it's perfectly fine.
thurstonxhowell: Freschel: Either this didn't happen or over 30 armed men were not able to kill one person./Crap I fed a trollCalm down, sparky. It was a joke. You ever hear of The Onion?
