In the case of James Saville it very much was a fake assassination plot setup by the MCSO to get Arpaio some camera time. Because Arpaio is such a
media whore Saville had to spend four years of his life in prison awaiting trial. There is nothing okay with that.
Interesting case. I see he was acquitted in 2003 after a quick skim of the facts relating to it. 4 years in the can, waiting for trial kinda
hurts....but then, you do realize every citizen in this nation has the right to demand a speedy trial and GET it, right? The majority waive that
right, per counsel, and then complain when the system takes it's sweet time about getting back around to them. I don't know if I'd choose to wait
or go if charged with something I didn't do. Probably demand my Speedy Trial though ...since, as this case and many others, all over the nation show?
Sitting and waiting can sometimes carry more time than the offense itself. I wish this could be called unique to Maricopa County, but the problem is
Sounds like a case some more attention ought to be paid to in looking at. What happened to the accuser that fingered him in the first place, as you
seem more familiar with it than I am?
In regards to the racial profiling the second US citizens started being arrested solely because of their skin color is the second the profiling
stopped being an investigative tool and started being an attack of the freedoms of any citizen of Maricopa County that might be of Hispanic
Can you show me a documented case where Sheriff Arpaio or his people have arrested a person 100% solely based on skin color and nothing but skin
color, in isolation of any other factor? Now this DID happen, frequently, in the racist history of America's past. The Southern States in
particularly, but I think all states had some of it at various times. Many have tried...many times...to nail Arpaio on that very charge. In and Out of
court. I've yet to hear one succeed. Prove it and it works...merely claim it and it's opinion.
My understanding from reading a good deal about the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and Arpaio in particular was that he was following the
laws...religiously..and after being certified and trained by the Federal Government specifically to enforce the Immigration statutes of Federal Law. I
believe his office has since been thrown out of that program but it doesn't change the fact he's been operating under established guidelines ...set
by the Feds themselves, for most of his time as Sheriff on this issue. (SEVERAL attempts by pissed off Feds to nail his office and him personally has
shown, in court, what I said is true ..or they'd have cooked him well done by now, more than once)
Also, if Arpaio is merely trying to uphold immigration laws why does he never arrest those people that hire illegals? The reason these people
are coming from Mexico is for work. If Arpaio started arresting those people who hired illegals it would cause others to think twice before hiring an
illegal thus cutting down on work opportunities for them. With fewer work opportunities the number of illegals coming in to Maricopa County will
decrease. Instead Arpaio is just happy going after all the brown people regardless of their citizenship status.
What area of law and enforcement do employers fall under? *ARE* civil laws and regulations regarding employers within the jurisdiction of the county
Sheriff to initiate on his own prerogative and 100% in-house for the enforcement and investigation? I'm not personally sure if that is his area to
work or not. Illegals on street corners and Home Depot parking lots absolutely ARE in his areas of responsibility though.
As a trucker who has spent more than a passing amount of time in Maricopa County while Sheriff Joe has been the guy running things? I appreciate the
work he's done and I've seen with my own eyeballs, what he's dealing with for the illegal alien mess on public streets and "work sites". More,
not less enforcement is needed.
