So is this your delusional view of the new law?
Today I was scanning satellite feeds when I came across a reporter in Arizona interviewing everyone from the mayor of Phoenix, to several regular
citizens, including a half hour conversation with a sheriff's deputy.
Every single one of them was absolutely in favor of it except the Mayor, who seemed understandably nervous. He babbled on incoherently for 15 minutes
covering everything from his favorite Starbucks to the holocaust without really saying anything.
The deputy, on the other hand, spent a half an hour going into meticulous detail about how they're required to conduct themselves in order to protect
the rights of anyone and everyone they come across. Whoever thinks they're just going to start harassing and questioning someone, just because they
look Hispanic, is either out of their mind, or completely uninformed.
He described several situations, that might lead them to suspect that an individual is an illegal, and offered some great insight into what they have
to deal with every day. He also expressed almost a sadness in the way president Obama painted a picture to the nation that didn't even closely
resemble reality. The thought that someone walking down the street eating an ice cream with their granddaughter would be harassed, and forced to show
their papers, is ridiculous at best.
Obviously, the liberal lapdog media wont be airing the hours of interviews I saw today, and wish I had been recording it to share here. I'm sure it
would have shed light on some of the misconceptions I keep seeing in these threads.
