    Anyone who violates the law or fails to keep the laws as a officer of the law looks like they should not be kept around.

    I have a feeling Sheriff Joe is not going to be around much longer. He’s already the focus of several federal investigations. Wait and see folks. He’ll go kicking and screaming but eventually Sheriff Joe will be a victim of his own excesses. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    I am an advoate for single payer universal access healthcare. Healthcare as a Human Right. Anyone including undocumented immigrants would be provided healthcare as a right. To read about Arpaio’s inhumanity is literally like a slap in the face by comparison. We as human beings are capable of so much good, yet can resort to such inhumanity regarding what we don’t understand or consider foreign. It is stunning to consider the distance between racial profiling and degradation of immigrants on the one hand and the spirit of the International Declaration of Human Rights.

    Sheriff Araipaio’s lead needs to be followed all over the country. It is time that towns, counties, and states enforce U.S. and state laws since the Obama Administration, is refusing to enforce our own laws. But, what would you expect from a Communist President?

    I am totally sickened at the way people in local or state governments are treating immigrants legal & nonlegal as well as American citizens. It leaves you speechless & unable to put ones thoughts together in a logical manner. This hardly seems the way to handle the immigration problem.
