I wish more people were shot by cops.
Wait, what?

Oh, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, though I've only seen him once(on Glenn Beck), seemed to be incredibly racist, specifically against Hispanics. He's pretty awful, I'd think.

Lol at the douche bag calling himself "americas toughest sheriff", hes obviously full of himself.

And feeding inmates "green bologna" im sure falls under the category of "cruel and unusual punishment". You cant make someone eat spoiled food.

brother you should know better than to try and use knowledge, logic and factual information when posting here at ISH. I agree but then I too use knowledge, logic and factual information...and get slammed for it.

He did not give himself the title other people did. As for the food the green portion is food coloring (dye). I have no idea what purpose it is supose to serve though.

He's an attention whore, a racist and a complete waste of a sheriff. Because of him, cops are allowed to ask people with brown faces as to what their legal status is in this country. You think that's fair? That's very offensive to some of us. Racial profiling is a huge problem down here, Arpio has only encouraged it. If I'm caught J-walking, I can legally be asked if I'm illegal or not. That's BS. This goes beyond taking Shaq's badge away.

edit: Somebody commented ""Shaq, tell me how my ### taste" - Sheriff Joe Arpaio" in the comments of the article. LOL

Arpaio is a screaming ass*hole, so this isn't surprising at all. I first heard of him from a friend who was busted in AZ with a miniscule amount of smoke, but it was enough to get the book thrown at him. Then, Penn and Teller's show did a spot on him. Arpaio is like every arrogant ass*hole father, coach or supervisor rolled up into one, and he thinks his sh*t doesn't stink. There is a wikipedia page about him, but I haven't read through it yet. After I hit "Submit Post" I will be though.

I'm no Shaq supporter, don't get me wrong. It could've been anyone on the other end of this. Take anything involving Joe Arpaio with a really big grain of salt and a hefty eye roll.

If only there was something called the Phoenixs Sheriff Department.

Do not make this into a cop thing, this is done by a senile old man. I'm actually surprised Shaq dealt with him in the first place. I heard a story about him working with the Tempe Pd but never the Maricopa County Sheriffs Department.

Racist for sure...he has thrown a bunch of illegal mexicans in jail and is damn well proud of it.

He considers it an honor to be compared to the KKK.

In October 2005, Arpaio started mandatory two-week English classes for non-English-speaking inmates at his jails. Classes last two hours a day. The curriculum comprises the three branches of government, how a bill becomes law, state government, law enforcement and court services, and jailhouse "situational" terminology. At the end of the two-week course, inmates are required to take a test to see how well they have learned about American government, the words to God Bless America, and the communication of health and safety needs. In response to critics, Arpaio responded, "These inmates happen to be incarcerated in the United States of America and in Maricopa County where I run the jails. We speak English here, not foreign languages."

Quote:
Arpaio set-up a "Tent City" as an extension of the Maricopa County Jail ( [show location on an interactive map] 33°25′40″N 112°07′26″W / 33.42778, -112.12389 (Maricopa County Jail)). Although often cited by Arpaio as unique, many prisons and jails throughout the United States have used, and continue to use, tents to house inmates.[13] Arpaio's tent city jail has become notable particularly because of Phoenix's extreme temperatures. Temperatures inside the tents have been reported as high as 150 degrees, which is sufficent to cause death or permanent disability in humans.

Quote:
Some feel that Sheriff Arpaio's actions are based less on a desire to serve the public and to lower crime, but more on demagoguery and grandstanding that hurt the public welfare. Amnesty International issued a report critical of the treatment of inmates in Maricopa County facilities[20]. Criticism has resulted due to lawsuits filed against the sheriff’s office by family members of inmates who died in jail custody and in high-speed pursuits involving deputies. The lawsuits have cost Maricopa County more than $43 million in settlement claims during Arpaio's tenure. [21] [22]

Quote:
Starting in July 2000, the Maricopa County Sheriff's website hosted images broadcast from cameras installed in the Madison Street Jail, which housed only pretrial detainees. After the Sheriff's website was unable to handle the traffic, alternative hosting arrangements were made with the commercial website Crime.com. 24 former detainees brought suit against the Sheriff's office, arguing their fourteenth amendment rights had been violated. The appellate court ruled in favor of the former detainees, stating in their judgement of Demery v. Arpaio: "We fail to see how turning pretrial detainees into the unwilling objects of the latest reality show serves any... legitimate goals... Inmates are not like animals in a zoo to be filmed and photographed at will..."[

Quote:
In 1992, Arpaio signed a notarized document, stating he would only serve one term as sheriff. He is now in his fourth term.
