Wow what a Sheriff!
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said one deputy and two county detention officers were among 16 people arrested on Tuesday on charges including assisting in a criminal syndicate, illegal control of an enterprise, human smuggling, drug trafficking and money laundering.

Arpaio, who styles himself as "America's toughest sheriff" and is known for operations cracking down on illegal immigrants across the Phoenix valley, said the arrests followed a tip received a year ago.

The violent cartels are infiltrating our law enforcement agencies just like they did those back home in Mexico.

I'm glad they caught these - but all along the border the cartel is moving over and planting their own into political positions and law enforcement.

This happened in Mexico so that people don't call the police when a family member is kidnapped because they know the police are in on it with the kidnappers.

The joys of a very wide open and uncontrolled border.

The cartels are infiltrating police agencies all up and down the border and in other cities and towns. They did it in Mexico and they know how well it works to have cartel members working on the "inside".

That's how they know who snitches and why the police in Mexico are sometimes involved directly in kidnappings, carjackings, drug dealing. There --- just like in Phoenix now, the police are the kidnappers.

Never underestimate the intelligence and craftiness of the Mexican cartels.

Agree. Sad thing is that our sitting President says things are just fine along our borders!

Wow you sure do know all about this stuff, perhaps if Sheriff Joe had you his employees wouldn't be selling drugs.

What is so surprising about this? Everyone has his/her/it's price.

To think otherwise is foolish ~ just look at our politicians.
