    Could the inane senile (Sheriff) be losing his decrepit mind? The angry law dawg is getting mocked by the local mainstream media outlets, as FOX10news is the latest to jump into the ever growing arpaio bashing bandwagon(followed by 12News, ABC15 and KPHO5 among others.)
    One can read some of the latest entries regarding our tin pot tyrant from the Feathered Bastard’s blog @ the Phoenix New Times. In which there are numerous links posted in his daliy scribes…..

    The type of law enforcement needed in this country could neither be exacted nor understood by most women. Once again, solidifying my position that the two worst things to happen to the U.S. are slavery and suffrage.

    Send him to Yuma, Arizona. We can use him against the drug traffic, human smuggling, sex trade, kidnappings and car thieves. The border fence must not work if they are getting to Phoenix. The people have elected him with 80 percent. He must be doing something right. Following the law, you think.

    Sheriff Joe is a Roque Cop…and needs to have his wings clipped.
