DOJ unable to go after Joe Arpaio for racial profiling, goes after him for abuse of power instead

From this:

A federal grand jury in Phoenix is looking at abuse of power allegations against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

County Communications Director Cari Gerchick told the Phoenix Business Journal Thursday night that County Manager David Smith and County Budget Director Sandi Smith have met with federal prosecutors and will appear before a federal grand jury in Phoenix on Jan. 13.

Gerchick said the grand jury is looking at abuse of power charges against the MCSO and Arpaio. Sandra Raynor, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Phoenix declined comment.

...The Sheriff teamed with County Attorney Andrew Thomas to indict County Supervsiors Mary Rose Wilcox and Don Stapley and has investigated other county officials.

If Arpaio did abuse his power, then he should face the consequences. However, what's going on here is that Arpaio is a target of those who support illegal immigration, including Janet Napolitano, the American Civil Liberties Union, and so on. If they could have gotten him on racial profiling, that's what they grand jury would be investigating. They were on a fishing expedition (see his name's link above) and when they failed to get a marlin they went after a halibut instead.

The political witch hunt continues. What a country when those who condone and encourage lawbreaking are going after an officer who is just trying to uphold the law -- laws that are supported by the vast majority of MC citizens who keep on electing him.

Steve its been that way for 40 years. the only hope that a free people have now is to get some part of this nation away from our enemy( government by the enemy and for our enemy ) and do the right thing with force of arms by the millions but sad to say most white guys are total dick heads PC Guys who would cry at a drop of blood. So get down and kiss a third world person ass.
