Criminal joes record.......

Unconstitutional jail conditions


Federal Judge Neil V. Wake ruled in 2008, and again in 2010, that the Maricopa County jails violated the constitutional rights of inmates in medical and other care related issues.[31][32] This ruling was a result of a lawsuit brought by the ACLU, which alleged that "Arpaio routinely abused pre-trial detainees at Maricopa County Jail by feeding them moldy bread, rotten fruit and other contaminated food, housing them in cells so hot as to endanger their health, denying them care for serious medical and mental health needs and keeping them packed as tightly as sardines in holding cells for days at a time during intake."[57]


Failure to investigate sex crimes


During a three-year period ending in 2007, more than 400 sex-crimes reported to Arpaio's office were inadequately investigated, or not investigated at all. While providing police services for El Mirage, Arizona, the MCSO under Arpaio failed to follow-through on at least 32 reported child molestations, even though the suspects were known in all but six cases. Many of the victims were children of illegal immigrants.[70][74]

When county supervisors provided more than $600,000 to fund six additional detective positions to investigate child abuse in fiscal 2007, none was added to the sex-crimes squad. Sheriff’s administrators now say they have no idea where those positions were added or what became of the money after it was added to the budge

Abuse of power



In February 2010, Judge John Leonardo found that Arpaio "misused the power of his office to target members of the (Board of Supervisors) for criminal investigation".[91]


Misuse of funds


An analysis by the Maricopa County Office of Management and Budget, completed in April 2011, found Arpaio had misspent almost $100 million over the previous 5 years

The Republic also found that a restricted jail enhancement fund was improperly used to pay for out-of-state training, a staff party at a local amusement park, and a $456,000 bus, which was purchased by Arpaio in violation of county procurement rules.

The analysis also showed a number of inappropriate spending items, including a trip to Alaska where deputies stayed at a fishing resort, and trips to Disneyland

Hmm< so because I look "brown" Im a suspect, and because Im a citizen who understands that I can choose whether or not to answer a question or allow a search, I should be detained or even deported mistakenly until they know Im not an illegal?


So imagine cops stopping every white or black person on the street, or in traffic, or anywhere in public following this profiling philo.


First of all poor cops and agents to have to put up with even MORE whiny citizens, second, again wtf did we do? You dont think people are going to get tired of that sort of behavior on all sides? Tell ya what. Go right ahead and make our country some crappy ass police state. Ill sit there and wait so someone who made a stupid assumption can run a check so that you guys can feel a little more comfortable about your opinions on message boards. Thats right neph, take it like a man cause your brown.

#in ridiculous ignorant opinions. Wait till they profile YOU for no reason at all, lets see then if you're ok with it.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Murray Snow in Phoenix backs up years of allegations from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's critics who say his officers violate the constitutional rights of Latinos in relying on race in their immigration enforcement.



I have no idea what to make of this.
Are they really saying that when it comes to Mexican illegals, the law isnt allowed to look for ... Mexicans?
That they also have to search a representative number of Scandinavians or Asians or whatever???





Sheriff Joe Arpaio is well within his rights to round up the illegal Mexicans. However, the problem is that he is not targeting the illegal Mexicans, he is targeting anyone with Brown skin. That is the problem. And there is a very good solution to this problem. Every US citizen who is wrongfully stopped and questioned by Sheriff Arpaio's team should be financially compensated for the harassment. If you allow the Sheriff to do what he thinks is best, and simply add a clause to the law, that says everyone stopped and questioned, who turns out to be a US citizen, has the right to file a complaint, and receive compensation from the state of Arizona, in the sum of $1,000.000 USD, to be paid within 30 days of the wrongful stop, then that would balance things out.

The Sheriff would then have to weigh carefully the "cost" of stopping a US Citizen and asking him for his papers. This would force the Sheriff to be more cautious in his stops, and only stop people he had good evidence for that there were in fact illegal aliens.

That's the best solution. Leave the Sheriff alone, and add a financial compensation clause to the law for every citizen wrongfully stopped and harassed.

If the Sheriff knows someone is illegal, he should be able to enforce the law. But, he shouldn't be able to harass the citizens in the process, by going on fishing expeditions where he has no probably cause.

It still amazes me how many people on this site support Arpaio. His department has been found guilty of unconstitutional acts not once but twice. He constructed a luxury prison for celebrities and his friends. His department has misspent millions of dollars of tax payer money on vacations, dinners, and luxury hotel stays. Let's not also forget the tax payer money he spent to send his Cold Case Posse to Hawaii. There's the unfounded arrests and detainments. Numerous people who have died in his prisons, including people still awaiting trial. The list goes on and on. People on this site constatntly complain about corruption in politics and the police yet Arpaio is for whatever reason considered a hero even though he is the perfect example of said corruption. Somebody really needs to explain to me how this makes sense because even after all this time I can't comprehend it.

While I understand why you’re upset about this unfortunate reality, you must understand that if you live in a state that borders Mexico, and you look Mexican, you’re going to face scrutiny. Your concerns are no different than Muslims trying to fly. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?

Don't take it personally!

Sometimes we have to root for John Wayne even though he does things that…stretch the rules a bit.

Once in a while you have to reach down and grab a pair when faced with a big problem

This argument is a slippery slope. It is the same mentality that produced Nazi Germany, the Patriot Act, and the current version of the NDAA. It is also the same train of thought that has many on this site worrying about things like FEMA camps.

Besides, as I mentioned previously the Arpaio County Sheriff's Department has been found, in a court of law, violating the Constitution twice leading to the deaths of a number of people including people still awaiting trial. If that's simply bending the rules I would hate to hear at what point you think the rules become broken.

Rather strange, isn't it? NYC has had its "stop & frisk" policy for several years now and it is still being done.
And the rate of young blacks and Hispanics stopped is about 70% of the total as I recall.

And sheriff Joe's people simply asked for proper ID to allow the person stopped to be in this country legally.

Laws works very nicely when interpreted by the liberal elites.

Why is Bloomberg not being hauled before the courts for his clear violations of the law?

It's ok to stop foreigners and ask them for papers. But, when you're at home, in your own country, you don't expect people to stop you and ask you for papers.

Imagine if every time you came home from work to your house, your wife asked you to show her your ID, to prove that you belonged there. And before you went to bed with her, she asked you to produce the marriage certificate, to prove you had the right. Would you accept that? Would you feel at home?

This is what the Sheriff is doing to "some" of the citizens.

Would be kind of annoying, if your neighbor gets to sleep with his wife without producing papers, but you had to produce your marriage certificate every time you slept with yours. You would think it unfair, wouldn't you?

Good point, and in local news here in NY it's come out the majority of stop & frisks have been in Brooklyn & the Bronx.

To those who cry about this Sheriff whose been found doing unconstitutional things, well same can & will be said our federal govt, in fact a federal judge even declared one illegal act unconstitutional, NDAA 2012, but our Prezidents lawyers found themselves another federal judge to reverse the ruling.

Figured it was worth mentioning.

Ahhh the great MariKKKopa county.


When the sheriff in charge has great admiration for KKK and thinks it's an honor to be compared to KKK, you know there might be a few skeletons in the closet.

If the sheriff and his department are looking
for illegal Mexicans, then the majority of
people they will be stopping are going to
be brown skinned Mexicans.

Just because someone is of Hispanic descent does not give the MCSO probable cause to stop and detain that person. These policies have led to American citizens being arrested simply because they are Hispanic. How can you support the unfounded arrest of US citizens?

Because Sheriff Joe only evokes tyranny on people that are non-white males.

They are too dumb to realize that if they'll do it to Mexicans, they'll do it to you too....eventually.
