He has half a million to waste on Smith & Wesson M&P15s, but refuses to feed prisoners - in many cases, people awaiting trial - human-grade food or to house them.
Of course he wants and has the budget for drones.

The people of Maricopa County make a compelling case for disenfranchisement.

That's a somewhat generous and grandiose title for Sheriff Joe supporters. Let's just stick with "retards."

He won't use them to catch people entering the country illegally, but he will use them to investigate people potentially smuggling drugs into the country. So basically, anyone crossing?

Also, don't the jail fences have cameras already? How high can people throw these drugs that drones are needed to catch them?

Drones are pretty common for police work, although with Arpaio I am sure he will come up with something new, like putting bombs on them or something.

Joe is the greatest American troller evar!

Obama uses drones?  Totally cool because black and freedom!

Joe uses drones?  Totally bad because brown and hates America!

Joe wins again!

I have no problem with drones patrolling the border, seems like the most reasonable use for them that I've heard.

Arpaio, well-known for his stance on immigration, said if he gets the drones, they would not be used to find and arrest undocumented immigrants in the desert.

I'm surprised to hear that.  The paths used by illiegal immigrants are extremely well-known-- so well-known that aiders and abbetors to their criminal activity set up resupply points so they can get things like water.  Given that, the bulk of illegal immigration could be stopped with drones and landmines.  Obviously this is not a complete solution, but it is the low-hanging fruit.

Or we could just let them in and tax them, and shut down any business that hires illegals.

Yep.  However he's currently in trouble for going after illegal immigrants too hard, so he has to back off there.  Presumably there's differences between standard illegal immigrants and drug mules.

Also, don't the jail fences have cameras already? How high can people throw these drugs that drones are needed to catch them?

The 'issue' is probably that the people tossing the drugs know where the cameras are and avoid them.  For that matter, given the sophistication I've seen out of drug smugglers I wouldn't be surprised if they're using some sort of large sling or catapult to get the drugs over the fence from enough distance away to avoid the cameras.

A drone is harder to see and might actually be useful for tracking the smugglers as they leave the prison area.

Molavian: Or we could just let them in and tax them, and shut down any business that hires illegals.


So... let them in and tax them (to take jobs in a time when the Obama recession has ensured there aren't enough to go around), then shut down the businesses hiring them?  The reason so much crime is perpetrated by illegal immigrants is because, by definition, they are willing to flout the law.  Putting them in a situation where crime is their only way to survive is not a great plan.  Especially not when drones and landmines.  We probably wouldn't even need that many landmines-- once word got out, it would probably scare a lot of people off.

That junior-high-school kiddie shiat he's all excited about only stops people from sneaking in - most illegals come in legally or by deception to begin with. Just another kid who wants to waste money on war toys he can watch go BOOM.

I can't believe that every PD in the US isn't using SOME kind of drone.  They are far and away the cheapest form of aerial surveillance out there.  Hell, I'm surprised the TMZ doesn't have one circling 10K feet above Selena Gomez's house 24/7.
 
2013-10-29 09:52:08 AM  
When asked about people's privacy, Arpaio responded without hesitation.
"Privacy in the jails? Privacy for criminals, privacy for those with drugs? They better watch out."


He's got a point you know, that's exactly how a drone works.

Wait, you people didn't know? The camera uses a very high tech algorithm to determine if you are indeed committing a crime, and will only record at that point. For example, if your sister is  nude sunbathing in the back yard, the camera will shut off before it's recorded 1/10th of a second. Put a joint in her hand though, and the drone can detect it and start taping... They are also very smart drones. If the girl in this scenario was drinking, but her birthday wasn't until tomorrow, the drone would recognize that and record it.

Why would the guards look away?  Most of them are in on and profit from his scams.

What he said was very poorly stated and trolltastic,  but I have noted a certain lack of protests in DC regarding aerial bombings since 2008.  They were pretty common for about 5 years (there was a weekly peace vigil/protest near Columbia for ages), but they came to a halt pretty pronto once Obama took office.

UNC_Samurai: The people of Maricopa County make a compelling case for disenfranchisement.


The people of Maricopa County elected him, multiple times if memory serves.

I did like the line about "catching drug peddlers entering the United States", but the very next line he says that they're not going to use it for illegal immigration purposes.  So that must mean that all the drug smugglers wear special IR sticks that ID themselves to the IR cameras on the drones, and there's no reason at all to stop everyone that the drone finds to search them for drugs and in the process, ascertain their citizenship status.

3. Completely unaware that, like pretty much everybody else, by the third generation everybody not living on the border is monolingual English.

By "home invasion," he meant he saw a Mexican looking guy walking past his trailer one time and he's been locked in the bathroom ever since.

I figured it was more a measure from the closest border of his county to Mexico.  That would likely extend pretty far south from the developed areas.
