It's like banging your head against a brick wall, isn't it?

All you accomplish is giving yourself a major headache.

Can you explain the comment from the Phoenix chief of police? Perhaps you have an answer to this recent statement from the Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police. Or are your dodging your earlier statement?

"Meanwhile, the Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police (AAOP) has said SB-1070 is “problematic and will negatively affect the ability of law enforcement agencies across the state to fulfill their many responsibilities in a timely manner.” The president of the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police (http://www.azfop.com/AboutUs.asp - broken link) — an association of sworn law enforcement officers — has also expressed concerns that the bill “will bankrupt our city.” “What’s going to happen is you’re going to fear the police…they’re [immigrants] going to shy away from us instead of coming forward with information,” stated Sgt. Bryan Soller in a local interview."

The demonstrations demanding he & the council denounce Arizona & call for a boycott are louder than those who oppose it even though polls suggest that most Angelenos favor the Arizona law! Strange but true. But most people in California are basically concerned about other things [ie. economy] and personally will probably visit Arizona anyway if that was their plan before the boycott. Though Latinos, as a whole, are very unhappy with Arizona and a good number will very likely not enter your state until this law is put to rest.
Why would Angelinos in support of the law be out protesting in front of city hall not to boycott Arizona? The people that were out there in front of LA city hall were demonstrating against SB 1070, and were calling on a boycott of AZ. So I should have been out front of City Hall protesting in favor of a law that already passed? besides that city council went forward on it, and we know it's mostly just a symbolic gesture. I also wanted to point out that while the vast majority in L.A. do not agree with the boycott, do you really think they will take a day off work to protest the city council? the elections will decide this issue.

Lol....Ahhh you almost got me with that one!
Have you noticed the reoccurring theme from this far left article? Money. Not the legality of the issue, but if there will be enough cops on the street, and how much it's going to cost. Then you throw out the Nazi comment made by one police officer from Phoenix- the article reported 2 officers against the bill in the entire department. We both know 2 people do not represent the majority, or even a double digit percentage. Think Progressive is a Lib fish wrapper.

Liam, you have never had a real argument. Don't get mad that I'm pointing out flaws.
