"The Sheriff's primary job is NOT to enforce FEDERAL crimes." Seems there are a lot of ignorant sounding comments coming from the socialista reconquista people these days. They are organized to flood certain immigration stories with anti-sb1070 comments. AZProgressive (socialist) seems to think our sheriffs shouldn't enforce bank robbery, kidnapping and all the rest of the federal crimes. Just how stupid do they think Arizonians are? My last comment on this story was deleted. I wonder why?
"The Sheriff's primary job is NOT to enforce FEDERAL crimes. " Duh! Or isn't it obvious that The Sheriff's primary job is to enforce all laws? Not just the one's you approve of. Not very bright fellow are you AZProgressive, or should I say AZSocialista, or AZReconquista. Seems there a lot ignorant sounding people making comments in this rag lately. Could there possibly be a concerted effort underway to pepper immigration stories with anti sb1070, Brewer, Pearce, any sheriff that favors the enforcement of all laws comments.
BTW: Bank robbery and extortion, and kidnapping are federal crimes. You reconquista's need to hire smarter people.
The Sheriff's primary job is NOT to enforce FEDERAL crimes.
I need them to go after rapists, robbers, drug dealers, murderers, etc. no matter WHO they are... not waste time doing chasing and after and doing hours of paperwork taking law enforcement off the streets so Juan the landscaper gets arrested.
The worst mass murder in a public setting in Tucson was NOT committed by an undocumented Hispanic. It was an untreated Caucasian with a mental illness.
The money they want to give to Babeau is a blatant financial political favor thanks to GOP corruption.
That money could be used to fund medical transplants or to reduce the cuts from services to the mentally ill. People in need of help could get it before tragedy strikes and not be ignored because their rhetoric sounds the same as the political pundits.
That was the reasonable and moral point Sheriff Dupnik was making after the tragedy. At least he can sleep at night with a clear conscience.
"The sheriff says he's not going to enforce the law,'' Pearce said Wednesday night. "Why would I fund him?''
Seems fair to me....
Given another $500,000, on top of the $5 million Uncle Russ is giving him in another bill, I can't wait to see how many deputies Sheriff BooBoo can convice to shoot themselves while patrolling the desert alone. (Brilliant tactical maneuver by the way.)Darn shame we can't find the cash for operations that may actually save or at least extend 90+ citizen's lives. Oh well... priorities.
Duprnick should not receive funding for something he refuses to do.... enforce the law. It's about time for a recall of this guy. I don't want a sheriff that refuses to protect me from criminal elements.
This seems to be so blatantly corrupt - I have decided to be more active in politics in the coming elections.
No more will I just write silly comments on deaf ears. After reading this article I feel it's my civic duty to visit the GEM DEMS @7153 E. Main in Mesa, http://www.gemdems.com
We have a truly corrupt group of leading legislators - SIGN THE RECALL PEARCE PETITION - - NOW.
pearce must really think the people of AZ are stupid not to believe his agenda is nothing but political. As time progresses, it will become more evident. I just hope things don't get out of hand with this hateful spiteful man. Hopefully, people will get tired of having these ultra conservative ideals shoved down their throat whether they like it or not. Sadly, that’s not the track record though.
From SB 1621, $500K for Babeu and his circus and non for Dupnik?
From SB 2718, $5 million for Babue and his circus? And non for the other sheriffs?
That is a lot of money for "no show" theatrics. Where are all of the Babeu's apprehensions? Where are the seizures?
Can he do anything beside interviews and personal campaign fund-raising?
Here when we thought Howie was doing sooooooooo well giving "balanced news".
Now he's gone and "fallen off the wagon" (in the journalistic sense only....lol). The old...."P.A."...just keeps coming back and back...."personal agenda". We are in a depression/recession that keeps on drumming away like the "Ever-ready Easter Bunny". Now with this horrific catastrophe in Japan...who knows what's going to happen down the line. Speaker Russell Pearce, one of the ..."Anti-Illegal Alien Trio" that the Lib's love to hate... (Gov. Jan Brewer, Speaker Russell Pearce and Sheriff Joe Arpaio). You don't believe me...watch PBS-ASU TV Channel 8's "Horizon" Show at 7pm...... (well not lately, seems that KAET is having yet another "Pledge Week, Month, Year...Pledge Whatever"...and ..."dumped" the Horizon Show, let's hope for good but probably just until it gets some money in the kitty (the phones aren't ringing...lol)............LOVES TO RAKE OVER THE COALS...(Howie is the "#1 Raker") show after show.
Pima County Sheriff Dumbnik went on National Television after the Shootings and ..."TUCSON-ED" (did a Congressman Grijalva...."torpedo job")..his own State of Arizona. Then he went on all the ...Socialist/Pro-Democrat/Liberal TV Shows on CNN, ABC and MSNBC (even the ED Show...the ED Show for goodness sake..how low can you go)......and said that he would "never enforce Arizona SB 1070 in 'his' County". So Speaker Pearce is just taking the Sheriff at his word and not giving him any of the ...SB 1070 money...............HOWIE.....WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT....TAKING A MAN AT HIS WORD........THAT'S WHAT WE DO..........OUT HERE IN THE WEST.Now maybe in Chicago or New York ...a man's word is not something that he stands by....but .........HOWIE....LOOK AROUND YOU....THOSE AREN'T "CENTRAL PARK" LAUREL TREES........THEY'RE CALLED .........SAGUARO'S.
