I was hoping someone in the crowd would have a sign demanding Arpaio's birth certificate.

gaslight: I'm not an American, so forgive me if I get this wrong, but I think most people would describe this a concentration camp.

Do I have that right?

No, you see, if it was done by Germans during the 1940s, its called a "concentration camp". If its done by Americans, its called a "prison camp".

Get with the program, son.

A. Snatchfold: RibbyK: LikeALeafOnTheWind: I have huge problems with Sheriff Joe. Hes my sheriff, and i get to vote against him.. which i do. Count me in the anyone but Joe camp.. but my problems with him aren't with how he runs the jail. Im totally fine with the tents, the pink undies, the baloney sandwiches.. all thats fine. I think its not much more than theater, but its fine. My problem with Sheriff Joe is that hes an attention whore who spends more time concocting ways to get on TV than he does doing his job. We don't need a celebrity sheriff. Also, hes completely corrupt, he uses county resources to go after political opponents, and its not even subtle he does it right out in the open, cause he knows he has the vote of all the blue hairs and old dudes. Ill be happy the day he kicks the bucket.. cant be too far away now.. hes what? 80? and that seems to be the only way we will get rid of him.

If you change "Sheriff Joe" to "Obama" and "blue hairs and old dudes" to "naive youngsters", you'd expand your argument to the national level.

And have an entirely false equivalent.

Yep, exactly my point, making a false counterclaim to a false claim, reductio ad absurdum.

Or we could just change "Sheriff Joe" to Romney and be done and truthful with less work.

skinink: It seems like he will never leave his position unless he dies. But it seems like the majority of voters in that area want him as Sheriff, so I don't see what the problem is. Are many of those protesters actually registered to vote? I can't understand why one of the most controversial officials in the U.S. hasn't been voted out yet.

You've answered your own question there. Majority of voters, how does it work?

diaphoresis: You know what scares me about tent city? People live in AZ and commit crimes KNOWING tent city exists.

Actually they are thinking "Well if Joe can commit crimes and the people love him, they will love me to!" They forget that they are not some senile white guy with a gun , badge, and a haterd for the Constitution going "It's them messsicans!"
