Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, is the focus of a federal investigation for a pattern of abuse against Latinos, especially immigrants. No offense to the sane and rational who live there, but just what is it about the desert heat that breeds his kind? <*That heat is a bitch!*>
From Arpaio’s mastery of humiliation to racial profiling to civil rights abuses, the question is, ‘What took the feds so long?’
Perhaps infamously disrespectful Arizona Governor Jan Brewer can take some time to answer that in between smiling about the after-effects of having signed HB 2036, a bill that bans abortion and defines pregnancy as occurring before conception, and signing a ban on giving public funds to Planned Parenthood.
Maybe, just maybe, if there’s any justice Joe Arpaio will soon be fitted for a pair of those pink boxers he makes his inmates wear.
