Out here in Phoenix we have a crusty old Sheriff named Joe Arpaio who is diligent to do his job, among which is to enforce immigration laws, specifically to stop the trafficking in human beings, to find the drop houses, and even to rescue those held for ransom, to arrest the Coyotes, and to turn the illegal’s over to ICE. Following is an excerpt from the Truth or Fiction website, in order to give you an idea of what Sheriff Joe is like and why all the liberals seek his head, far more than they do any Jihadist who are intent on destroying America. Truth or Fiction
Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a colorful and controversial character who has instituted severe policies at Phoenix's Maricopa County Jail since taking office in 1993.
According to his bio on the Maricopa County website, he enjoys being known as "America's toughest sheriff." He got nationwide attention when he established the Maricopa County tent city for inmates. More than 2,000 prisoners live without smoking, coffee, pornographic magazines, movies and unrestricted television in all jails.
Meals cost less than 40 cents but the cost figure is actually less than 20 cents. Arpaio has also instituted what he calls "Hard Knocks High", the only accredited high school in an American jail. That, along with an anti-drug program, says Arpaio, has resulted in a high percentage of his inmates leaving jail without their addictions and few of them returning. This particular eRumor borrows from an Associated Press article from July, 2003 that focused on the prisoner's experiences during a heat wave and adds other details that have become well-known about Sheriff Arpaio and the jail.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona) is doing it RIGHT!! He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them. He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights. Cut off all but "G" movies. He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects. Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.
He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again but only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel. When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.
He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value. When the inmates complained, he told them.....this is a good one......"This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."
He bought Newt Gingrich's lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place. You have to love this guy!!
With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports:
About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to
their government-issued pink boxer shorts. On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before. Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their pink socks. "It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the tents for 1 1/2 years. "It's inhumane."
Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is
not one bit sympathetic He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes... so shut your damned mouths."
Because Joe has not allowed himself to be poisoned by the testosterone destroying demands of Political Correctness to start bawling out loud anytime some victim class claims people are being mean to them, or illegal immigration activists groups and newspapers and most of our media conspicuously leave out the word “illegal,” when talking about illegal immigration, as if we will all suddenly forget and pretend these are the halcyon days of Ellis Island and good natured immigration authorities looking at someone with an unpronounceable 20 syllable name, and knowing that was not going to work in America and suddenly Gershunlot Breadmakerinsmallvillage Toomanysylablestomakesense, becomes “George.”
No Joe knows that among those illegals are rapists and murderers and gang bangers of the likes most American are completely oblivious about. They never heard of MS-13 or now even worse gangs arising out of the Mexican drug cartel wars. Enter the gutless mayor of Phoenix, Republican Phil Gordon, along with him is the gutless Chief of Police of Phoenix Jack Harris and a handful of Mayors of some of the other cities in the Phoenix area. Phil Gordon hates Joe, because Phil Gordon must have gone though the liberal sex change offered at American Universities that diminishes men and makes them cry-baby pandering little wimps.
He has repeatedly attacked Joe and the County Attorney Andrew Thomas...well because they are still men and that enrages a metro sexual like Mayor Gordon. So eventually Mayor Gordon does what all doctrinaire liberals do when defeated by principled men who stand their ground and do what is right. He calls them racists, bigots, homophobes or any of the ready made liberal stones that have been manufactured and stockpiled in abundance in the last 40 or 50 years in America.
Joe does not back down, so Mr-jealous-always-in-a snit-about-Joe gets a sympathetic ear after the Obama coronation and of course our government that is utterly zealous to protect us Americans immediately sided with Joe and sent teams of agents down here to try and stem the tide of illegals and gang bangers and rapists and murderers and possible Jihadists coming across our border.
Ok I was just fantasizing for a minute, did you almost believe me? Course you did not, by now you realize these people are your enemies, they could care less if harm comes to you or your loved ones, just as long as among the criminals and wastrels coming across, there is that flood that will eventually vote for liberals and more welfare and free stuff to be taken from all you “regular Americans.” You know the “bitter ones clinging to their Bibles and guns.”
No the army of Feds are here to investigate Joe, and they will bring electron microscopes to find any and every flaw in Joe and in his department. Woe to Joe if one of the thousands of his Deputies that have served over the years ever picked his nose in the presence of one of the officially recognized victim classes. The screams of outrage will be greater than the kids and little girls raped by criminal illegals. It will be worse than the screams of grief and despair by widowed police officers gunned down by illegals in our streets (Several in just the last year...shhh quite, don’t tell the Arizona Republic!).
It will be worse than the cries of anguish of parents whose sons and daughters were killed by drunken illegals. Because the real crime here is how utterly insensitive Joe has been to illegals and prisoners and all the poor victims who had nothing to do with their situation, all innocent all driven by the wind and circumstances beyond their control. The real crime is Joe still thinks America is a sovereign nation, that all should obey its laws, not just the peasants living under the oligarchy of feckless political elites. He incredibly thinks that a sheriff is to enforce the law of his county, not spend time kissing political ass, what a jerk!
So finally in a typical YOU ARE HITLER because you do not agree with me final solution from Nancy-boy Gordon he says the policies of the Sheriff's Department are akin to John Bull and fire hoses and dogs turned on blacks looking for political equality down in the south during the civil rights movement. Yeah, how come I did not see how that is exactly the same until Mayor Gordon helped me see the light? Looking for criminals and illegal workers is exactly the same as denying American citizens their rights. Joe is Hitler, worse he is an SS guard working the death camps, laughing as he shoves little brown people into the ovens for a nice gas shower.
Ultimately what such histrionics produce is to awaken real men that never went to a Tupperware party, men mostly minding their own business finally get tired of the screaming bitches in their midst and they weigh in like Lt Joe Sousa of the Maricopa Sheriffs office:
An angry Lt. Joe Sousa told reporters that he and his fellow deputies are highly offended and take it personally – one even said "it pisses me off" – when critics accuse them of racially profiling when it comes to crime sweeps and arrests. "The men and woman of this office are sick and tired of picking up the paper, watching the news, and being accused of racial profiling. Accusing us of racial profiling amounts to calling us racists. We are not racists!"
Sgt. Brett Palmer added, "Nine years in the sheriff's office and I have not done anything based on the color of someone's skin, the content of their religion. And I have yet to meet the sheriff's deputy that does."
Rather, the men say, they do their job, which is to track down and arrest criminals – people breaking the law – without regard to their race or ethnicity.
Lt. Sousa rephrased his message to Mayor Gordon: "You need to shut up. You know nothing about the men and women of this office that go out every day and put their lives on the line in the field, and in the facilities."
Gordon caught a lot of flak for a previous comment comparing Arpaio's department to the racist police agencies of the '50s and '60s that targeted blacks. A few days after those comments, Gordon insisted he will no longer comment on Arpaio's habit of arresting illegal immigrants.
NOTE: Got to laugh at this little (insert your description here)...even as he shuts up he accuses Arpaio’s enforcement of the law as a “habit.” He must have got his ass kicked a lot back in high school. Also one of these deputies pointed out most of their stops occur at night when you cannot see who is in the car, nor the color of their skin. O, great now these deputies are using logic, certainly the liberals will soon come up with a law or code that makes it illegal to use logic in any argument against a liberal. Thanks deputies for now inciting the liberals to come after logic and reason!
Yeah good Mayor…I add my hearty shut the hell up just flounce out of our lives and go kiss up to your liberal friends and victim groups quietly but stop vacuuming in front of the TV while the MEN are trying to watch the last 2 minutes of the super bowl.
One last irony, the little city of Guadalupe here in the Valley of the Sun fired Joe's Department last year as the police force because Joe is such a meanie. But just before the contract ran out this year, low and behold Guadalupe cannot find anyone to Police their little burg...Mayor Gordon? Nope! Jack Harris? Nope! Guess who they asked to stay and police their little burg? (Filled with illegals, by the way). Yep Sheriff Joe, because there are also a lot of people in Guadalupe that need protection, wonder if Mayor Phil noticed or is he to busy acting like Sydney Sawyer to Joe’s Tom and tattling to Aunt Polly?
