when it rains it pours...Did you really think this abuser of civil rights wouldn't meet his day?

On Wednesday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., also announced he would hold hearings into the complaints against the sheriff.

Bingo!!! Someone gets it....

No great words of wisdom here today....I just find it a bit ironic that Conyers of Michigan, whose state just this week sunk to the very BOTTOM of the heap, with the nation's HIGHEST unemployment rate, (and whose state contains what is arguably one of the most DEVASTED and crime-ridden large cities in America....Detroit)...is able to find the time to hunt down recalcitrant cowboy sherrifs in far-off Arizona.

Maybe busting the flamboyant "Joe" is easier than tackling the situation back home (?)....

Or maybe not...

(Let's just say the debate over Arpaio COULD become intense.....get it? ..."In TENTS"?)

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.
In the opinion of the person who "profiled" you. And its your "choice", so you ask for it if youre profiled.You'd be a fool if you werent okay with it. Others are profiled for where they live or how they were born to look, and sometimes for both.

And yeah, I'm not surprised by you having that kind of prejudice. You demonstrate it here daily. That "Flip Side" perfectly shows your bias and prejudice toward Latinos better than any "pro-illegals" ever could.

As a sailor stationed in Norfolk VA. I was profiled often. Why? Because so many young sailors insist on living the stereo type. Although I found it annoying and inconveinent I put the blame where it belonged. On my fellow squids who insisted on acting the fool.
Sailors and dogs keep off the grass. A common sign in the day. Police watched for the NAS sticker on cars and would pull you over to check to see if you were a D U I.
In the case of illegals and legal hispanics. Blame the illegals who without regard to our laws, our rights, or plain old good manners trespassed into our country. Blame the facilitators who help, who hide, who support such activities. Blame the folks who know and dont report violators.
Joe may be less than perfect but I'll take him over a do nothing any time.

I place a lot of the blame on the putative 'Hispanic' community with so many of their members acting like PW Trash hillbillies. Such behavior reflects badly on all Latinos-------and, quite a few Latinos agree with my opinion.

Sad.

Good job government, lets attack a man taking care of the problem rather than deal with the problem itself. Lets just let all these drug dealers and killers in the country then, if we do nothing to stop them and investigate those that try whats the point.

Been keeping up with this thread, but, i keep comming back to this 1 post. Got a question or two for you? Who are you callling losers and who's attacking your citizenship? Sounds to me like you are the one without an argument, just a lot of rhetoric. Who are you calling yellow and what country are you from? How do you "not allow" an officer of the law to do his job? I don't think you qualify to "Question" anybodys loyalty and spirit no matter where "your country" is. Sheriff Joe Arapio does his job, enough said. Oh, btw, who is the"famous lyric"? Fill me in on that. ok?

You realize your own prejudice, and you try to find excuses for it? Are you really that helpless or weak minded to not be able to get over your own prejudice that you can openly acknowledge?

Google the famous lyric...

And my country is the United states of America...The losers is the one who questioned my citizenship...just because I refuse to think like he or she does...

Joe Arapio is as crooked as they come. He violates civil rights and he is very politically motivated. On top of that he is a certified media wh*re...

If your willing to overlook that then that is good for you...key word being you...

If your country is so great, then why the hell are you here? Why don't you get your arrogant little butt back to your perfect, superior little country?
