Zero to worry about...I love how you losers want to attack my citizenship when you have no better argument. I know where I come from and people from my Country fight for their rights... People from this country I'm talking about are not yellow and do not allow men like Sheriff Joe to do as he pleases...People from my country protect their constitutional rights...Surely you are not from this great Country I speak of...No way...In fact, I question your American loyalty and spirit....As a famous lyric says, did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage? Looks like you did...

He really wants to stay and win...

You should know that people have to put a happy face on for the media...and Sheriff Joe is a master of this. The fact is that this man is very secretive (won't even use email because emails can be subpoenaed) and he wants no part of government officials looking at his books...

From what I have read, Eric Holder is no pushover...What does he have to fear from Sheriff Joe? Absolutely nothing...

Did I take offence? Hell no! The authorities were doing their job and I had nothing to hide.
Yeah, getting profiled because of a poor choice of wardrobe and being unkempt is definitely the same as getting profiled because of how you were born to look like.

Why not just disband the whole Sherriff's Department and let people take care of themselves? I'm SURE we could do a better job....CHEAPER, too. We'd have a LOT less people being 'violated', as well.

I say INVESTIGATE JOE AND his crooked Department. LET THE PEOPLE FREE !!.....

Amen....
Wow, you sure like the assume the worst for some people, and the best for others. Why would you question the finances of the "sherriff"? He deserves his privacy. It's not like he keeps a high profile and seeks the limelight for grandstanding or anything like that.

The rest of the story...

It never ceases to amaze me how many people are so quick to jump on the bandwagon when there's criticism involved. Judging by your area code you are far and away removed from "mariposa" county (it's MariCopa), and yet you will take opinions as fact, and decide that you actually know what you are talking about, when in fact, you have been carefully fed just the parts of the story that the news media in Phoenix wants you to have, and you follow their tune like a child mesmerized by the Pied Piper.

Poor choice of wardrobe in whose opinion? Dressing in such a manner is my choice so I have to accept the consequences of doing so............

Flip side: 'prejudice' is a weird animal: whenever I see a (probable) Latino dressed well by WASP standards; I immediately think Sicilian---------not Hispanic.

The stereotype is that clothes do make the man or woman.
