    Arpaio's thugs threaten to arrest a New Times reporter for looking at public records

    By Ray Stern

    How close did I come to getting arrested by Maricopa County sheriff's deputies today? As Maxwell Smart would say, "Missed it by that much."

    The problem: I had the nerve to want to look at the same public records that sheriff's deputies were scouring at the City of Phoenix public records counter.

    It's pretty shocking that a Sheriff was able to arrest reporters simply for, reporting news. But he did and now the taxpayers have to pay to bail him out.

    I'm curious was he voted in and then continually voted into office or appointed? I DK how they do things in this state, but he needs to go.

    Well, I guess they're getting the government they deserve. :facepalm:

    I know I wouldn't want to be a taxpayer there, funding millions of dollars to pay for this guy's fines and settlements. :twocents:

    I have friends there who are absolutely mortified every time this (self edit) little man does something outrageous. I get their messages, "We're not all like that REALLY!!!!!!" :facepalm:

    Well, it's just the Sheriff, not the entire government. Janet Napolatano was the Governor a few years ago. But they're definitely getting the Sheriff they want, and have for years, regardless of whether he is or isn't what they deserve.
