Sheriff Joe Arpaio under federal investigation

HIGH-PROFILE ARIZONA SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT TARGET OF FEDERAL PROBE

PHOENIX — Federal authorities have told a high-profile Arizona sheriff that they will investigate his department over allegations of discriminatory practices and unconstitutional searches and seizures.

The U.S. Justice Department said in a letter delivered Tuesday to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio that the investigation will focus on alleged patterns of discrimination based on a person's national origin.

Arpaio told The Associated Press that he will cooperate with the Justice Department.
Arpaio, who describes himself as "America's Toughest Sheriff" and is best known for feeding jail inmates green bologna sandwiches, clothing them in pink underwear, and making them work on chain gangs, received praise for his anti-immigration efforts from many who believe the federal government isn't doing enough to remove people in the U.S. illegally.

But his raids and sweeps of illegal immigrants in Phoenix and nearby Guadalupe have drawn protests from community leaders and civil liberties advocates. Arpaio, a Republican, has also been criticized for letting thousands of felony warrants go unserved while he chased illegal immigrants.

According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, there are about 59,000 outstanding, unserved felony warrants in the state. The majority are in Maricopa County, the state's most populated county.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not a racist, and only deports illegal aliens when they have committed a crime. They do not walk around, questioning hispanic people at random. If you break the law, and are caught, and you are illegal, you should be deported. I don't see any other country of signifigance that doesn't do this.

He also is one of the few that actually treats prisoners like prisoners. He makes them work in chain-gangs, wear pink underwear, and eat bologna sandwiches every day. Good for him!

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is racist whether some people want to be believe that or not.It's more than obvious that he uses his authority for this matter.He arrests any latino person trying to find any little thing to do so. It is funny how he tries to deny it and cover somethings that is SO OBVIOUS!!!

Mr Moto brought both hands up, curved his fingers to fit the tempting mounds loosely cupped and hefted the substantial, dangling tit bags. Alice thought about rolling to her back and offering him a beaver as a peaceoffering.

Well good to see the federal gov't bringing this Pig to court. An uneducated, egotistical maniac uses another color to gain some self esteem. This uneducated pig will be gone asap. Maybe he can take Jan on a cruise with him, get both of these individuals OUT.
