The Bird wonders why Sheriff Joe Arpaio put a U.S. citizen behind bars for simply appearing Mexican

Quote:
What ICE doesn't know won't hurt it.

That's the Sheriff's Office policy regarding immigration "holds" placed on those the MCSO suspects of being illegal aliens, a category covering everyone in town darker than the average eggshell.

Indeed, as part of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's recent posse-enhanced dragnet of central PHX, one The Bird dive-bombed during its press-conference kickoff ("Joe Show Blows," January 24), the MCSO placed an "MCSO ICE Hold" against U.S. citizen Israel Correa while he was in custody on the bogus charge of not producing a valid driver's license.

Why bogus? According to the incident report, obtained from MCSO flack Paul Chagolla, Correa was stopped about 10 p.m. January 18 because he was driving without his headlights on. The MCSO actually arrested Correa for failure to show ID, even though the report written by deputy C.A. Rangel notes Correa eventually produced a valid Arizona driver's license, just not quickly enough to satisfy Rangel.
.......


This sheriff's department is headed by a guy that claims accusations of KKK membership should be worn as a badge of honor. Just another Arizona NeoCon putz.

More proof we should be afraid, be very afraid--of the our own homegrown terrorists!
