Lol-let me rephrase that.

It may be illegal for the police to arrest you simply for not having I.D.,but they do.


Are they not doing that when they grab an illegal for merely not having identification?

Now, now. In fairness, if you look 'Mexican' and happen to be limping away from a border fence, that is another story.

Yes. And that is the point.
Guilty until proven innocent. Right?

And it is, of course, a crime to look Mexican in Maricopa county.


I don't think Selena Gomez can even tour through Maricopa county without getting deported back to California he's impossibly nutty... the joke is he's from NY.

The anti Mexican thing is ridiculous and the reason it's ridiculous is because it's Caucasians opposing them that are too stupid to realize even if they are racist Mexicans are a tremendous boost if long term you value a basically Caucasian European American, I mean... these guys are so racist they are mincing in the end Catholicism vs Christianity like "the butcher" in gangs of Ny...

Mexicans are mainly Catholic, 30-60% Caucasian on avg by genetic, speak a romance language have the highest rate of intermarriage and it's plain as the nose on your face that over a couple of generation they essentially are Caucasians with Spanish last names..

Your never getting more White than that ever again via immigration...

Heinlein called this out in his sci fi decades ago, all anyone has to do is watch Starship Troopers to see the prediction, everyone is Caucasian with Hispanic last names and that's where this ends up and yet... they are THAT racist lol, sort of southern Europeans, Greeks, Ashkanasi Jews, Mexicans even the Irish...ain't white to these guys lol (some Irish are almost albino lol) These are the idiots that believe "Mexican" should be separate as a race on the census... and Joe is their Jesus

There is a great motivation to attribute racism to any interaction between law enforcement and anyone who is not obviously white.

So, if there really are no physically recognizable attributes with which to discern 'Mexican' from 'Caucasian', how can there be any racist intent? (At least with respect to motor vehicle stops)

Racism and profiling are not one and the same in theory.
In practice...
It's a line easily crossed and Arpaio doesn't seem to be concerned about the distinction.

Seems to me Arpaio is concerned with serving the people of the county that elected him by arresting criminals.

There is, atm, i'm saying it wont demographically last, unless these freaks want to take it all the way to "no Brunettes" obviously "fresh off the boat Mexicans are distinguishable" but aside from language maybe 1/3 really aren't even from the get go, some are blond.

It's an odd thing but I saw this in NY, even when you come over olive, generation 2 growing up alongside caucasians are less olive.

I have actually seen a few studies on this,when women have children who aren't the fathers over the first months and years of childhood their traits will tone over to who they are around, not a lot, but a shade lighter of skin and eyes, very Black babies will lighten skin tone a bit over time slight difference will change... It's thought to be a protective trait so Fathers don't kill young that are not there own. In fact I was adopted into a Dark haired Jewish family, Platinum Blonde, light blue eyes, my hair today is Brown with dark Blue eyes, I have a few distinctly Jewish features

when you factor in the numbers

the fact that your already dealing with a people who have in some cases an 80% Caucasian genome

The above tendency

and the high rate of inter marriage

Your definitely NOT going to be looking at an america that appears any less Caucasian on the surface in 40-50 years than it does today... so I think these people are morons, not for the race bias by itself, but because they want to get rid of the only immigrants who will identify Caucasian down the road and they are racist, it's a stupidity on top of a stupidity

I live here, I know an unlimited number of second generation Mexicans and... you just can't tell they are Mexican very often, some of the above is the hypothesis as to why, but I see it all the time, 2 very Mexican/Native looking Mexican parents and kids who are that bit lighter, bit taller, speak perfect English and aside from the name you'd peg them at southern European of some sort and they inter date Caucasian, my son is in HS I see this every day...

Bottom line there is racism and then there is RACISM and these guys, i just... again if you can't deal with another romance language mainly European people your ridiculously racist, i can sort of understand not wanting your culture "radically changed" but all this genetic stuff aside... your talking about Catholics... it's just another branch of your Church and your talking about people mainly Spanish, this is 16th century Racism lol... they like Christmas and Jesus, what the EFF do people like Joe want?

Don't hold your breath...

Its civil and not criminal. Essentially they are being punished for refusing to comply with the courts order. In law enforcement terms its essentially the judges version of "contempt of cop".

Say what you will about Sheriff Joe but I have watched more than one program where the prisoner like him...they say he is tough but fair. He even let them watch the superbowl this year complete with cherry glazed popcorn. People don't like him cause he is tough and believes prison is prison and not a vacation. As for profiling every police department in the country is guilty of it...he just doesn't sugarcoat anything for anybody...he is old and will most likely leave soon anyway.

Wow Buster why don't you tell us how you really feel?

Living in AZ i'm quite happy with Arpaio, prison shouldn't be all sunshine and unicorns. Cages and hard labor for all criminals citizens or not!


Here is the problem with his concenteation camp in the desert.

He is putting people in that hell hole BEFORE they have a trial.


Punnishment should not beguin until AFTER conviction.


The other story I see is the website that publishes mug shoots and "alleged" crimes of people brought in by police
Before they are even charged let alone have a trial!


Your little tyrant in arizona seems to quite content in ignoring the constitution and the whole innocent until proven guilty aspect.

Yeah but I have seen the website which puts those mug shots up.

It sure seems they are deliberately trying to shame and label people before they even get to court.

It's amazing how Arpaio continues to avoid any real punishment. Even when he gets busted the only thing that happens is the MCSO gets fined. Which all that means is the people have to pay for it. Arpaio and his cronies have cost the people from Maricopa County several millions dollars due to their flaunting of the law and Constitution. He's like a Mafia don. Even when it looks like he's finally gonna go down for corruption someone else takes the blame for him.

That's not profiling, that is looking for a witnessed suspect. Profiling would be looking for a Chinese man if there were no witnesses.


No, profiling would be using past data to determine the most likely suspect, then looking for people who match that description, most likely with prior arrests for violent crimes.



Ergo, anyone who looks Mexican is a suspect and should immediately provide proof of citizenship. "Your papers please." Got it. Because everyone knows American citizens don't look like that.


You're mischaracterizing what he was/is doing. Don't do that. It serves no intelligent purpose.

Well, when you have a presidential administration from which to learn (and to whose policies of not enforcing immigration laws you must react), what do you expect? Sometimes you fight fire with fire to get things accomplished. At least the things he is doing are seemingly for the greater good of the state that he is sworn to protect...not to mention it's his job to also enforce the federal laws, which include those against illegal immigration.

Where did this guy get Law Enforcement training and credentials...The SS Academy of Fatherland Security? Looking at his own self proclaimed "achievements", this guy actually flaunts being a sadistic, morally retarded and emotionally handicapped cretin. Not to mention someone forgot to tell him about that inconvenient piece of paper called "The Constitution".

What I see is an old geezer who likes to blow his own horn, and is a complete media whore. What is the most sickening thing, however, is that this man has been permitted to continue to run for office, and that he has not been arrested or even dismissed for his blatant abuses of power, despite the fact the feds have repeatedly ruled against him. That is 3 administrations and DoJs that have failed to reign in this monster.

I have family in Arizona, at one time, some in Phoenix. One of them, my cousin's wife, even said that being brown is becoming a crime. She herself is black haired and brown skinned, and could be mistaken for a Latino. However, she is not. She was born and raised in a small farm town in Ohio, and her ethnicity is half Native American, half Italian, and her accent is clearly Midwestern. This didn't stop her from being harassed and grilled during one of this a**hole's "sweeps" of her workplace. (She worked as a receptionist/book keeper for a construction company, which employed some 40 or so people. And despite the raid, only one of those employees was an illegal). She has since moved to the north eastern region of the state, near the Navajo reservation where brown people are not considered suspect by Nazi cops.

Just goes to show, as per the growing trend of excessive force by LEOs and the lack of prosecution at local, state, and federal levels. that the government quietly endorses this behavior, and will look the other way. This isn't about justice, but petty vengance and abuse without proof or perspective. I used to love Phoenix, but until this POS and his ilk are removed from power, I'd never go anywhere near Maricopa county. I've already spent too many years of my life living in totalitarian countries, I don't need it here.

At his age, the best thing we can hope for is that the old fart croaks soon.

Maybe he's not doing anything illegal.
