It's about time. This guy has been the loosest of loose cannons for far too long. Upholding the law is one thing, taking it into your own hands and flaunting power is something entirely different.

Finally. This report supports the good people of Maracopa County where I once live some solid evidence of the criminal wrong doing on Joe. Interesting how the two biggest crooks of this fall have been old men named Joe, Arpaio and Paterno.

The feds have been trying to take down Joe for years now - this is just the latest - he embarrasses them because they do not do their job and he calls them on it and fights back when they attack.

You might want to read the actual report. Since when do sheriffs have the authority to raid a person's house on no probable cause, arrest the persons within the home for no probable cause, and all because the persons within the home are Latino?

That is prohibited by the US Constitution, the Arizona State Constitution, the US Code, the ARS and yet, oh because someone somewhere may be illegally here in the US, it makes it perfectly acceptable?

Oh I am sorry, I forgot, in Maricopa County, looking brown means you are here illegally and deserve to not have your constitutional rights respected.

I can judge your intelligence, or lack thereof, by your statement" "I'm one of the 53% that pays taxes." It is untrue that 47% of American do not pay taxes. They do. They pay payroll taxes and property taxes and sales taxes. They simply make too little money to pay income taxes. The fact that you have self-identified yourself by the use of a lie indicates that your opinion simply does not matter.

They pay income taxes throughout the year, it is during the time they file their tax returns that their "lack of income tax" becomes apparent as for some individuals with children, that we, as a nation have deemed a policy to encourage to have, receive certain tax incentives.

These include the Earned Income Tax Credit, the additional amounts to be deducted such as certain medical and school related expenses.

A very careful person may review all statutory language for taxes and calculate their tax burden accordingly and not pay taxes during the year but the average person making $29,000 with two jobs and three kids will probably not have the time to do the math.

Way to go Obama and Holder. The two of you are taking more action against States and State Officials than you are within the world of real criminals and dictators. shame on you. The result of this action against Arpaio and the decision by Homeland Security to sever ties will result in illegal immigrants being released from jail and large numbers. They will go undetected and be “dumped on a street near you. For that, you can thank the federal government. Is this the change you progressives voted for????

Sorry, since when is being brown a reason to have one's constitutional rights ignored?

Please give me the amendment to the US Constitution that says that.

yeah, kinda.

Why, do you support state officials breaking the law, abusing civil rights, harming people?

Now, what have you to say for all the employers who hire? What did Arapho do against them? Or, does reality not factor in, and why?
04:46 AM on 12/17/2011
thinkinperson, I agree that employers should be equally held accountable for this problem. State officials are not abusing civil rights when an ILLEGAL immigrant is asked to show proof of ID and subsequently citizenship status. I would have no problem doing so and would not be offended if asked. Everytime I board a plane I'm asked to prove who I am. get over your touchy feely thing about people who break our laws by coming her ILLEGALLY.

Joe's now just another over the hill Arizona vigilanti, soon to be on a pension. To see such a bright star fade, will bring tears to his supporters with the loss of the strong abusive father figure they had always known.

As they did with the disgusting sheriffs of the South who often doubled as the Grand Wizards of the KKK.
Tyranny of the majority is at its worst on the local level - easy to have one county that had developed a bigotry or is swayed into bigotry by its own economic circumstances. However we have the bill of rights & it appears that Sheriff Joe seems to think he is above it. Too bad that some people don't understand what American values actually are.

He will never draw a pension. He wil take his little tank and challenge the US Army and will be justifiably incinerated.

Secretary Janet Napolitano said Thursday the department is ending an agreement with the Maricopa County sheriff's office that allowed trained deputies to enforce immigration laws. It's also restricting the office's use of the Secure Communities program, which uses fingerprints collected in local jails to identify illegal immigrants.

Treason again raises its ugly head. This administration must end.

I suggest you go read the "CONSTITUTIONAL" definition of treason. It may aid you becoming rational.
