Try again. The pro illegal apologists are scared of him----------otherwise losers like Salvador Reza and Mary Rose Wilcox would not be trying so desperately to have Arpaio removed.

Hostility here in Arizona is growing against illegal immigration.

Particularly to those who got to wear the pink underwear or have illegal relatives that did?

From the Maricopa County website:

Another program Arpaio is very wellknown for is the pink under shorts he makes all inmates wear. Years ago, when the Sheriff learned that inmates were stealing jailhouse white boxers, Arpaio had all inmate underwear dyed pink for better inventory control. The same is true for the Sheriff’s handcuffs. When they started disappearing, he ordered pink handcuffs as a replacement. And later, when the Sheriff learned the calming, psychological effects of the color pink—sheets, towels, socks— everything inmates wear, except for the old-fashioned black and white striped uniform, were dyed pink.

No he is a hack. Arpaio's recidivism rate was comparable to other sheriffs (meaning that those released were under Arpaio's watch were just as likely to commit another crime as those released under previous sheriffs). Not to mention that illegal immigration is more of a federal problem. His support is waning...he currently has has MANY lawsuits over misconduct of prisoners. He uses techniques that have proven to not be effective (blatant racial profiling), and he has refused to cooperate with federal officials on lawsuits HE filed.

He is essentially a showy, unsubstantive, and frankly ineffectual sheriff.
