discuss this back in reality.
Quite honestly, comparing him with Hitler is asinine and somewhat juvenile, it just isn't the language of intelligent debate - it's the literary
equivalent of chewing with your mouth open.
You also need to be more specific with your sweeping generalizations. Give me some facts, some statistics, some links - something and not just
Arpaio's methods of law enforcement include:
1. Reduced operating costs of the county's jails and improved employee benefits for his staff.
2. Put prisoner's back to work - we actually had them working alongside us volunteers who were helping pack food boxes at St.Marys Food Bank - yes I
live in Maricopa too.
3. Training prisoners in vocations - the Maricopa Jails dog rescue program is now recognized as one of the best in the country, with many prisoners
qualified to work in that field following their release.
What methods EXACTLY are the ones that are akin to Hitler, and please be careful to point out those created by Arpaio, not those required by Federal
Law including the requirement for legallly resident aliens to carry their residency paperwork at all times. Even the workplace sweeps are only
carried out based on the confirmed presence of violators - that's why they never come up blank.
But hey what do I know? I was only born and raised IN Maricopa county my entire life. I've watched him progress politically. I watch and read his
interviews. I watch and read the opposition.
I live in Maricopa as well, and your opinions are out of step with the majority of the rest of us, with 57% of Arizonans believing that Sheriff Joe
actually improves the national image of our state:
He has improved the quality of life for law abiding citizens, and made it a damned sight worse for criminals of any flavor, all while reducing the
costs for us, the taxpayers.
Your attempt to slander him with neo-nazi ties, an increasingly desperate tactic by those who are upset by his success, is as lame as it is
predictable. In his 77 years he has never been a member of any neo-nazi organization, but the leftist loons always operate on the basis that if you
throw enough mud, some will stick.
Personally, I know of at least one person who was carjacked at gunpoint by an illegal (whom he did manage to shoot and kill fortunately), and we
personally have had 2 more jump our back wall and attempt to gain entry to the house - my wife was home alone at the time, and was again saved by the
presence of firearms. A workmate was also killed by a drunk driving illegal, and a second was seriously injured in a hit and run accident with the
illegal being caught (by the Maricopa Sheriff's Department no less)shortly thereafter.
With SB 1070 flushing out the illegals from one direction, and Arpaio's rigid enforcement squeezing them from the other, we are seeing the mass
exodus of the illegal alien population that we had all hoped for. Just watch the crime rate come down a year from now.
Either you're on the side of law and order, or you want to turn Maricopa into an anarchic, crime infested hell-hole.
If my choice is Joe or anarchy, I choose Joe.
Consider yourself rebutted.
