U.S. sues controversial Arizona sheriff for discrimination

• Reuters

The U.S. Justice Department sued a controversial Arizona sheriff on Thursday for civil rights violations, saying he and his office intentionally engaged in racial profiling and unlawful arrest of Latinos in violation of their constitutional rights.

Joe Arpaio, who bills himself as "America's toughest sheriff," vowed to fight the suit, which he blamed on forces who do not like the way he enforces immigration laws.

Remember, this sheriff, along with most others, allows the Federal Government into his county for all kinds of activity against county and state citizens.

Will this Fed Gov activity against him wake him up? Or is it all some kind of a ploy, a blind, a coverup, for new ways to allow both him and Fed Gov to steal your rights away from you.

Keep your eyes open on this one. Support your sheriff, but don't necessarily trust him. Keep your eyes open.
