    What’s the irony behind that photo?

    The self-described neo-Nazi who posed with the (Sheriff) Arcorruptio, has a KKKriminal record, accused of breaking into his H.S’s chemistry lab and stealing chemicals needed to make bombs, in which he wanted to blow up his school in the vain of/and coincidentally timed on the anniversary of the Columbine massacre. This is according to the police reports as produced through public info request by the Phoenix New Times. And here we a got a racist-2-faced (Sheriff) posing with a homegrown domestic terrorist-extremist. It makes true law enforcement officials wonder about this rogue top KKKop’s agenda. Is he a true law enforcement figure? To most rational thinking American, probably not, if the old f***nut is appealing to white extremists.

    P.S. “Vito Lombardos” is not aryan, one look at the turd reicher, one can assumed he’s a Mestizo trying to fit in. Also, this article state’s he’s a “leader of the Phoenix’s NSM unit”, to which he is not. “Vito” in a phone interview with the Feathered Bastard recently stated that he is “not a soul member of the NSM” and that he is only “representing” them.

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio ceased being a law enforcement officer when he stopped experiencing the professional fear of every true law enforcement officer; what if I am, or could be perceived as wrong?

    Voluntary retirement would be more acceptable, than termination.

    Hey, Sherrif Joe…Try to keep it in mind that there are a lot of people who sacrificed for the United States and the right to be free. And, the people who tried to take away that right were called Nazi’s.

    You’re a disgrace!

    :Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio”

    I knew it! I knew it! Before I even scrolled to the second line in the Nativist email, and saw it said Phoenix, I KNEW it was him!

    I’m sure glad I don’t live in his county! As a matter of fact, I’m glad I don’t live where there is a large Latino population and have to wittness the hate towards them. It sickens me just to read about it!

    I did not vote for Sheriff Joe and never will – but I thought he was smarter than to pose with someone like that. I guess not.
