Feds Go After Sheriff Joe
The bad guys taking total control of the federal government is not good news for local officials who do their jobs with integrity. An example is legendary Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has repeatedly stood up to moonbat slugs like Phoenix Mayor Filmstrip Phil Gordon and former Arizona Governor Janet “Crappy Nappy” Napolitano, enforcing immigration laws despite the political elite not wanting them enforced. Farcically, Sheriff Joe’s nemesis Nappy is now head of Homeland Security. No one should be surprised that he now has the feds pounding on his door:
Federal authorities have told a high-profile Arizona sheriff that they will investigate his department over allegations of discriminatory practices and unconstitutional searches and seizures.
The U.S. Justice Department said in a letter delivered Tuesday to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio that the investigation will focus on alleged patterns of discrimination based on a person’s national origin.
Given the situation around Phoenix, which thanks to invading criminals from south of the border is now second only to Mexico City in kidnappings, Arpaio’s main job is to round up Mexicans. Punishing him for “discrimination of a person’s national origin” would be like punishing Sergeant York for picking on Germans — which our current rulers no doubt would do, given their habit of sucking up to enemies (Iran, Palestinians, invading Mexican criminals) even while alienating friends (Britain, Israel, Colombia).
