Arizona sheriff sanctioned over destroyed documents

• Reuters

A federal judge on Friday issued legal sanctions against high profile Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio for destroying documents in a civil rights lawsuit accusing him and his department of racially profiling Latinos.

Citing the admitted destruction of emails and patrol records by Arpaio's office, U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow said he would punish the department by drawing certain incriminating conclusions of fact against the agency when it comes time to rule on the suit.

Oh come on David.  This is the world's toughest sheriff when he was the SOLE DEA agent in Turkey when it was the #1 pipeline for all of the CIA's heroin and hash pouring into Mena, Ark.  A member of the Bush-Clinton crime family doesn't have to explain themselves.

    Geez, guys, it's Arizona...What do you expect?

    Sanctions? How about an indictment? How about criminal conspiracy? How about official malfeasance? How about firing the thug?

     When was the last time YOU did somehting elegal and got caught, only to be "sanctioned"? Never? Join the rest of the real world. don't you wish you could be a blatantly arrogant incompetent and sonly be sanctioned?

     Maybe that should be a new "alternate" punishment:  So, you lied and cheated; maybe even colluded with others to commit fraud...No matter. Let's see,now, how about ten seconds of sanction? do you agree, Mr. prosecutor? Good! See...the system does work.
