Your part of the problem, not the solution!
Are illegals fleeing Arizona? Must be working, eh?
Have not heard any stories of real American Citizens fleeing Arizona. Not one! Why? That would be big! Media would be all over it. Why?

No way this would ever be "executed". The cartels, although asses, are not stupid. They know the Feds would be all over it. Some chump trying to start ****. Get over it, Joe is there to stay.

Has anyone seen another source for this rumor besides FOX news and a half dozen right wing blogs?

The Examiner has the story this morning. They were one of the blogs that carried the false alarm about Laredo being invaded by drug cartels last week.

Death threats against prominent political figures in the news are nothing new.

Arpaio should be indicted and tried on charges of civil rights violations, fraud, corruption, etc. and if convicted, imprisoned, and most of all there should be a consent decree on the Maricopa Co. Sheriff's which would mean Arpaio would be a powerless figurehead. But he should not be killed although I know Arizonans (some of whom support 1070) who'd probably throw a party if he was.
So, what specifically did Arpaio do that he should be indicted? Which legal US resident's civil rights did he violate? Swift justice is not a violation. If anything, the man should be hoisted up on shoulders for doing his job and doing it well. If the government doesn't want to do its job, I for sure will. A few came onto my property the other day even with a no trespass sign and beware of dog sign. Not my fault they can not read. When they saw my Rotty coming at them full speed, they hopped the fence like they were running for the boarder. I will continue doing this when someone comes onto my property without an invite.

I highly doubt everyone who has suffered at the hands of Arpaio's rogue department is an illegal alien. Even those I know who support SB 1070 have said that Arpaio routinely abuses the civil rights of detainees even if they're US citizens.

Just because he's "tough on illegals" you make him into a messiah.

He's as dirty as all hell and should go down (I wouldn't be surprised if this story is fake and a product of his own martyrdom complex). He shouldn't lose his life extrajudicially, but he should be arrested and indicted (and hopefully put in a Tent City in GP) Arpaio has no more respect for the US justice system than Roman Polanski does
I totally agree with you. Sheriff Joe is a pure scumbag if I ever saw one. I truly hate him so I could care less if the illegal drug cartels kill him.

Still no second source for the story in the OP.

Must be someone trying to stir up something again with a vicious rumor.

THESE CLOWNS ARE THE REASON THESE THUGS FEEL LIKE THEY CAN EVEN MAKE A THREAT!

Holder would probably pop the champagne if the Sheriff got wacked!

Thanks for the links. From the Boston Herald article you linked to,

"Allen said it wasn’t known whether the threat actually came from a drug cartel, but she said authorities believe the threat was made using a disposable cell phone in Mexico."

The CNN artiocle was equally as vague. This is simply a case of the media getting a trailer in just in case it turns out to be true.

As of now we still don't know.
