And yet this will be forgotten come election time. Because electing anyone else to the position means that racists can't fap to minorities being mistreated.

Gonna need either a fed-up federal judge or the Grim Reaper to get him outta that office.

A smart challenger for the office would play up those lawsuits as wasteful government spending and an unfair burden on the taxpayers.

Trabaggers may hate minorities, but they hate taxes and government spending too. It would be interesting to see which one would win out.

Teabaggers won't care about this, though, because Sherrif Joe's Tough On Crime, and he sure does deal with those brown people in a way they like.  The judgment against him are lie-brul socialists who work for Fartbongo and want our country overrun by illegal immigrants who'll come here to try to knock up your daughter to make an anchor baby.

In short, the racism of the Tea Party trumps any of the other stuff they claim to care about.

I'm going to say something really profound.  People are STUPID when it comes to how they respond to their elected officials.

[nscsb]
Small Mississippi town where I live had the same sheriff since the 60's.  He was a local institution, util he got in the middle of an altercation between the scion of a prominent local family and the the Feds.  Committed perjury, bribery, attempted bribery, witness tampering.  All to provide cover for the scion who was busted in DC with an Uzi in his car.

Anyway, he ended up pleading guilty because a white southern sheriff couldn't get a fair trial in Washington DC.  While he was waiting sentencing he was re-elected to the office.

Anyway, as he's going away to Florida prison camp for 18 months, the local population was wailing and gnashing their teeth because what would they do without the man who had protected them for so many years.

Less than $5 per resident. Maybe $20 per person who voted for him. He's been in office for a long time. Would you pay $1 per year in return for police smiting evildoers, whatever your personal definition of evildoer is? Better entertainment value than a movie.

This just goes to show how dumb Arpaio is and how dumb he thinks his constituents are. He arrested them for violating the secrecy of a non-existent grand jury. How did he think that would work?
 
2013-12-21 01:59:55 PM
But...but...he's saving us so much money by getting rid of the brown people!

I'm not sure if you've noticed, so you might want to get a fainting couch ready, but that's pretty common with just about anything they say. Fiscal responsibility, personal responsibility, laser-like focus on jobs, etc etc

You can tell he's not Terry Brooks because his name isn't Esherwideleanifligarian Nehehefonoporios of the old line of Widosligonaria, come to us by way of the Shehestipushilinohonorian mountains.

That reasoning went out the window when it cost $24,000,000,000 for their bought politicians to shut down the government for just 16 days.  The tea party rabble can be counted on to react to anything, but their hedge fund leaders and billionaire comrades are calling all the shots.

Just like their forebears. the Christian Coalition, same hijacking a title, same hater base.

Are these judgements for actions against good, white, chritstian converative residents? Or minorities and the dirty liberal lapdogs? If the latter, that will be viewed by most of his backers as good legitimate spending.

The best thing I can say about electing police is that it isn't quite as retarded as electing judges.

CPD and Chicago have paid out over $100 million since 2010.

Obviously the voters who keep electing him want him and don't mind having their tax dollars used to pay off the jury awards, or watching Joe violate people's civil rights. So why should I care? I don't live there and can't vote him out. I can't really be outraged about him.

Reason to care:

Empathy for those whose rights he violates?

He should move to Iran. He might find he has more in common with the authoritarian establishment there. Although, I suppose Arizona works just as well.

Because we live in a Constitutional Republic, where the job of the Federal Government is to protect citizens whose natural rights are violated by the States.

Is it unusual for a department that size to pay a lot in lawsuits?
 
2013-12-21 02:20:59 PM
I would bet that Maricopa County hasn't had to pay out a dime - at least, not of taxpayer money, anyway. I'm betting that the County has received any number of donations to offset the fines that this racist asshole has rung up for the county.

For total lawsuits no but the 17 million is just the amount they have had to pay for him going after political rivals and members of the press.

We just passed a law in the last few years in North Carolina that prohibits convicted felons from running for sheriff. It was necessary because at least two sheriffs had been arrested and removed from their jobs, and were trying to get elected back into office.

No, we the taxpayers get to pay it.
I would love to opt out as I have voted against this asshat every time.
But thats not the way it works.
He may still be getting some good press outside the state, but his star is definitely setting here, thank  gods.
 
2013-12-21 02:38:51 PM
yeah sheriff Joe needs to go, best bet to unseat him might be to hammer down the point of how much money he has cost the county i legal settlements due to his asshattery.

truthfully he will keep that office until he is either ready to retire or he dies.   I just hope none of his cronies get elected afterwards.

A Teabegger challenger would say "he's given $17 million to brown people!!! TRAITOR!!!"
 
2013-12-21 02:50:05 PM
Im constantly amazed by the lack of action taken by the latino community in Arizona. "Sheriff" joe should have been shot to death a long time ago. If you are tires of being bullied then do something about it.

Do the right thing and kill this scumbag.
 
2013-12-21 02:50:06 PM
This is yet one more reason one should never, NEVER let their community turn into a retirement haven: the geezers love this asshole, and as long as it's just the young folk being taxed to pay for this they're alright with his abuses
 
2013-12-21 02:56:15 PM
I live in Maricopa county and the only good news is that he gets elected by a slimmer and slimmer margin every time.  So hopefully we will have him out next election or maybe he will just have a heart attack and die, that would work also.    The Sheriffs office of Maricopa county is so corrupt it defies all logic that anyone votes for him.
 
2013-12-21 02:58:39 PM
I joked about the idea of Hollywood rebooting 1984's Tank, and replacing the Sherman with a Rhino with Dwayne Johnson playing Sgt. Major Carey.  I think it would need a rewrite to work in today's society, and I think Sheriff Joe here has given us the material.

So his witch hunt against New Times started after they reported he had invested $600,000 in cash in some real estate. Where's the follow-up on where he got that kinda money on a public servant's salary? That guy should be in jail by now.

redmid17: What is this, amateur hour?

What he said.  That number will keep rising and rising, especially after the CPD has been found by a federal court to have a culture of cover-ups that shield officers accused of a wide range of crimes and misconduct.  The city needs to start taking misconduct and torture settlements out of their pension funds, the CPD refuses to take responsibility for their innumerable crimes over the years.
 
2013-12-21 03:18:58 PM
...which is a drop in the bucket compared to the interests he's protecting. He'll be fine so long as he keeps all the dirt he's collected over the years, and keeps rousting brown folks for the right neighborhoods to protect their property values...
