We are here to discuss the results of our civil rights investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
In June 2008, the Justice Department began its investigation of MCSO.
Our investigation initially focused on allegations that MCSO was engaging in discriminatory policing and discrimination in its jails.
As with all of our investigations, our mission here was, and will continue to be, to determine the truth.
Operator Introduced me (name withheld from ATS) I do not represent nor am I backed by either the Boy Scouts of America, or the Explorer Program, but do you think that organizations like that could help Law Enforcement Officer's learn ethical boundaries, disability awareness, and as well to be more open to other nationalities, at a younger age before preconceived notions are ingrained?
Having been a Police Explorer as a youth myself, the organization helped me better learn how to deal with citizens and treat other people fairly in my area.

How about our right to not be arrested and held without trial? Did you ask him about that?

SKL, so glad that it was you that started this thread!
I honestly think that the Holder JD is on a vendetta against Sheriff Joe because of his own investigations. The overt abuse of voter registration has been ignored by Holder and lax authority has been shown to those who have flagrently shown themselves to inhibit voter activity.

This is how the Chicago mob gets things done.
Question the boss, your ass gets run through a ringer.
The people of Maricopa county know full well how the MCSD is run, and they keep electing Joe, because he is effective.

SKL sent me the number and log in, and I barely got logged in and then dragged away by work. I can verify the call happened, and SKL was on it.
Great thread!! Thanks for the invite SKL, I wish I would have gotten to listen in more. I'll be checking back in a little while.

Yeah, well I'll bet they pull that kind of investigation at any number of other police or sheriff's offices, and they'll find as bad or worse.
Heh, when Ron becomes Pres, the boys coming home from overseas will need jobs. Take about 20,000 of them and train them to do internal police/sheriff investigations, and send a unit to every major city in the US for starters. A new Anti-Corruption Army to bully law enforcement back into submission. Cause Internal Affairs ain't cutting it.

If those who pick Law Enforcement as a career choice are taught as youth the right thing they have a better chance of not only being a better citizen, but a good and decent Law Enforcement Officer, as well the surrounding community is involved in that development.
“The Explorers program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America that began 60 years ago, is training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters,” reports the New York Times. Homeland Security and the FBI are behind the effort to indoctrinate and train the Boy Scouts to become tomorrow’s Gestapo. “Our end goal is to create more agents,” April McKee, a senior Border Patrol agent, told the New York Times. “Before it was more about the basics,” said Johnny Longoria, a Border Patrol agent. “But now our emphasis is on terrorism, illegal entry, drugs and human smuggling.”
