Feds say 'toughest sheriff in America' violated civil rights

APNewsBreak: Feds say Arpaio violated civil rights

PHOENIX (AP) — The federal government issued a scathing report Thursday that outlines how Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office has committed a wide range of civil rights violations against Latinos, including a pattern of racial profiling and discrimination and carrying out heavy-handed immigration patrols based on racially charged citizen complaints.

The report, obtained by The Associated Press ahead of its release, is a result of the U.S. Justice Department's three-year investigation of Arpaio's office amid complaints of racial profiling and a culture of bias at the agency's top level.

The Justice Department's conclusions in the civil probe mark the federal government's harshest rebuke of a national political fixture who has risen to prominence for his immigration crackdowns and became coveted endorsement among candidates in the GOP presidential field.


Sheriff Arpaio is an extremely good cop. He has been a true leader in the fight to secure our borders. And he isn't afraid to crack down on illegal's being in our country. The FEDS can word it however they like, they can call it profiling etc. but the bottom line is Sheriff Joe is simply doing his job. And he does it extremely well.

The Obama regime is upset with Arpaio because of his launching the investigation into Obama's eligibility. The investigative posse is set to release results of that investigation in February. Arpaio has stated he expects the results to be shocking.

We here at TWAU BLOG have always supported Sheriff Joe Arpaio. And will continue to do so. In our opinion, he is America's top cop.
