As a symbolic message, members plan to break a Sheriff Joe Arpaio pinata during their celebration.
It shouldn't be hard to break his fat butt.

You know I went to school at ASU in Tempe in the mid 90's, Sheriff Joe wasn't really liked by college kids either. He was known for his roughness, and his treatment of inmates was considered cruel. Actually I remember some inmate getting stun gunned repeatedly while handcuffed, which made a big deal on the news.

I am not sure if that has all changed or not, but the guy is not liked by everyone.

To me this just sounds like Napoleon Dynamite, where the kid Pedro got in trouble for making a Pinata look like the blonde class president opponent.

And; that would be skating on thin ice there---------that is crossing the line between free speech and the incitement of possibly terrorism.

Along the lines of Elias Bermudez (who, BTW, seems to have dropped out of the public eye) who circulated an e mail depicting Sheriff Joe dressed as a Klansman with a stereotypical Mestizo wearing a sombrero at his feet.

That particular cartoon I found offensive.

Jeez..........last time that I checked; Catholics were not accepted by the KKK anyway.

Breaking a fat pinata resembling Arpaio equals possible terrorism? Gimme a break.

Perhaps a more appropriate pinata for them would be the "RULE OF LAW."

Lots of people, of Hispanic and other cultures, will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo -- the Fifth of May. It celebrates the day in 1810 when a small Mexican militia defeated the mighty French Army near the City of Pueblo. The day is not really a big holiday in Mexico, except in Puebla. But, here in the United States, it's a tribute to Mexican heritage and pride.

Sure wish they would get the history right.
It wasnt in 1810 it was in 1862 and it wasnt a small band of irregular milita it was a trained and professional army that numbered 4000.
The French made a tactical mistake in removing their calvary from the field and that is what cost them the battle.
Geezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

end hateful attacks by destroying an effigy of law enforcement, stereotypical. Maybe they should use Calderon or Fox pinata. Oh those are great men from a great country.
